Rain continues across northwest Montana


The weather pattern is stuck in a rut as we continue to have a stream of mild and moist Pacific air moving through western Montana.

That means partly to mostly cloudy skies through Wednesday. A good chance of rain across northwest Montana, including the Kalispell area. The rain along with snow melt will bring the threat of localized flooding. There is a chance for a few showers in Missoula and the Bitterroot. It will be mostly dry in southwest Montana. Lows in the 30s to around 40 with highs Wednesday in the 50s in Missoula, Butte and Kalispell to around 60 in Bozeman.

A cold front will usher slightly cooler air into the region Thursday. There will be a chance of rain and snow showers as the snow level drops to 3500 feet west of the divide. Highs in the 40s, with lower 50s around Bozeman.

A break from the rain on Friday. An increasing chance of rain this weekend.
