Things across the state look vastly different today ads compared to yesterday.

This is particularly true in regards to temperature as things have cooled considerably with the passing of a cold front. Across the state temps are almost 30 degrees colder than they were 24 hours ago. This has also pushed the possibility for severe weather out of the region and to the east into the Dakotas, where they are expecting very good chances of severe thunderstorms as the day goes on today.

Here in Montana we might see some scattered showers of the mountains and foothills and the possibility of some active weather spring up in the far southeastern portion of the state a bit later this afternoon, but the threat of serious weather is mostly out of the state.

With the drop in temperatures the potential for some mountain snowfall above 6000 feet or so has also come back into the picture. Heading into Monday morning there is the chance for snowfall accumulation at these higher elevations. If you were planning to recreate in these areas this weekend please be aware and be prepared for cold and potentially snowy conditions. 

As we head into the day on Tuesday thing swill clear up and warm back to seasonal temperatures with plenty of sunshine.
