More snow expected this week


A moist Pacific flow will keep the clouds rolling through western Montana along with a chance of snow. That means more flurries and snow showers. Minor accumulations in the valleys through Tuesday with 3 to 6 inches at Lolo and Lookout Passes and 2 to 4 inches at Lost Trail and Marias Passes.

A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY through Tuesday morning for the Lower Clark Fork region northwest of Missoula and the Bitterroot and Sapphire mountains.

Lows Monday night in the upper 10s and 20s with highs Tuesday in the 30s.

Warmer air will move into the region Tuesday night and Wednesday. Widespread snow will develop Tuesday night with a WINTER STORM WATCH for the Lower Clark Fork region and mountains. One to two feet of snow will fall at those passes this week. In the valleys, accumulating snow will be possible before the snow mixes with rain on Wednesday.

More rain and snow showers are possible the rest of the week and this weekend. Highs will warm to the 40s with lows in the 20s and 30s.
