Most of the south central portion of the state woke up to a couple of inches of wet, heavy snow as a well formed trough gave us one last push of the cold and wet weather we have become accustomed to over the last couple of weeks.

That system will continue its trek to the south, as there are winter weather warnings up across much of Wyoming.

For Montana, our brush with the start of winter was just that, a glancing blow.

We might see some cloud cover early in the day on Sunday, but by the afternoon things will clear out across the state and bright skies will define Sunday afternoon.

A quick hitting, clipper type system, rolls through on Monday, but it is not packing much in terms of moisture.

right now we are forecasting basically no showers associated with that system but we can expect some blustery periods on Monday afternoon.

Over the early portion of the week we can expect a consistent trek upwards in the temperatures. Monday high temperatures should be around 50 degrees and by Tuesday we should be closing in on the 60 degree mark, a number that should stick around throughout the rest of the week.

So get through today and a cold tomorrow and look forward to above seasonal temperatures for the rest of the week.
