For tomorrow, we are going to have increasing clouds with a chance of evening showers, generally around the Helena area, as a storm system begins to impact our area. Precipitation is then going to become more widespread as we go through tomorrow night, with rain showers in the lower elevations and a mix of snow and rain in the higher elevations. Showers are then likely on Thursday, especially during the morning, as this storm system continues to impact our area. Some higher elevation snowfall is also possible during the day on Thursday. We are also going to have mostly cloudy to overcast skies tomorrow night and Thursday. There is also going to be some haze around tomorrow, tomorrow night, and Thursday.
It is also going to be cool tomorrow as highs are going to be in the 60s and low to mid 70s in most locations.
