Another storm system will bring rain to Montana


A weak storm system will impact western Montana through Friday night. It won't be as strong as the one that brought widespread heavy rain earlier in the week.

Mostly cloudy with sprinkles and showers periodically through Friday night. Rainfall amounts are expected to be generally under a quarter of an inch.

Temperatures will be below normal, with highs in the 60s after morning lows in the 40s and lower 50s.

A FLOOD WARNING continues for the Salmon River in Idaho where moderate flooding will continue. A FLOOD WARNING also for the Big Hole River near Melrose in southwest Montana. That river will be above flood stage through Friday. And a FLOOD ADVISORY continues for northern Beaverhead County for minor low land flooding.

Much improvement is expected this weekend. Partly sunny and milder Saturday with highs in the 60s to around 70. Mostly sunny and warmer Sunday with highs in the 70s.

The warming trend will continue next week with highs warming to the 80s by Monday and Tuesday.
