We are going to have mostly cloudy skies tonight with some scattered rain showers and isolated thunderstorms around, especially before midnight and generally in central and south-central Montana. It is also going to be mild again tonight as lows are going to be in the 50s and low 60s in most locations. The wind is also going to diminish this evening, and then there is just going to be a little bit of a breeze around tonight as sustained wind speeds are going to be between 5 and 20 mph.

For tomorrow, we are going to have mostly cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms around, especially during the morning and early afternoon, as a disturbance passes through our area. There is then going to be some clearing tomorrow evening and tomorrow night. It is also going to be breezy tomorrow, especially during the afternoon and evening, as sustained wind speeds are going to be between 10 and 25 mph, and wind gusts up to 40 mph are going to be possible at times.

There are then going to be scattered rain showers and isolated thunderstorms around on Monday and Tuesday as a storm system stalls out near our area. There is also going to be snow around above 5000 feet on these two days, which will create difficult travel conditions, especially in the Glacier National Park area. We are also going to have partly cloudy skies on Monday and increasing clouds on Tuesday.

It is also going to be cool early next week as highs on Monday and Tuesday are going to be in the 50s and 60s in most locations, with Tuesday being the coolest day.

Mostly sunny skies and dry conditions are then expected on Thursday and Friday as high pressure is going to be in control of our weather.
