Today is shaping up to be the best day of an otherwise cool week.

Temperatures should approach 70 degrees this afternoon after a clear start to the day and an early southwest wind help bump up our temperatures to near seasonal levels.

That wind is something you will notice in our weather today as it will be gusty at times and will shift to the northwest this afternoon as a cold front approaches.

This sets the table for a much cooler day tomorrow as a push of colder air from Canada makes its way into Montana.

High temperatures for Thursday afternoon will be some 20 degrees colder than what we are forecasting for today.

This system will also bring some moisture and low-level upslope flow will create good chances for precipitation beginning Thursday afternoon.

There is a good chance for snow at the higher elevations and due to cold overnight low temperatures we could see some of the white stuff down at lower elevations overnight Thursday and into early Friday morning. No accumulation is expected.

The system clears out fairly quickly leaving clearer skies for Friday and Saturday, but temperatures will still be well below seasonal.

It is officially looking like sweater season everyone.
