Some scattered shower activity will continue in the area here this evening, setting the stage for a larger precipitation event on Sunday.

Temperatures here on Saturday are limited by the cloud cover and some cool precipitation and will likely top out in the upper 40’s.

We can expect a similar temperature outlook for Sunday.

A moisture-laden wave is pushing in from the west that will begin to impact us starting on Sunday. If we do see any morning activity we could see a few flurries, but right now the bigger push of precipitation looks to be coming in the afternoon hours and will fall as rain.

We can also expect breezes to pick up Sunday and be around 10 miles and hour out of the southwest.
Temperatures will drop heading towards the midweek as a deep trough forms into our regions, funneling cold air from Canada down into Montana. This could mean greater chances for snow by Tuesday and Wednesday. Afternoon high temperatures could fail to eclipse the freezing mark on Wednesday.

A reminder that Tuesday is election day and no matter your politics, it is important to exercise your right to vote. The weather could be less than ideal that day, but it is nothing we are not used to for November in Montana, so get out and rock the vote.
