Montana seems set on reminding us that anything can happen here as far as the weather is concerned and that seasons are only a suggestion.

Temperatures here on Sunday afternoon have stayed well above seasonal around the 50 degree mark. The pattern holding these conditions in place has remained steady with winds coming out of the west-southwest.

We have seen some clouds over the last 24 hours or so and there is some moisture running into the are from the pacific, but there is no definite weather system to really change conditions in any drastic way.

We can expect conditions to be very similar heading into the early portions of the week.

Tuesday into Wednesday we can expect a slight change in the way of some very gusty winds picking up. however the flow pattern will stay the same so overall conditions will not change too much.

There is a quick hitting system rolling through Tuesday into Wednesday that could bring some early day snow to western regions but as of right now does not look like it will push out of the foothills and into the plains.

It is very likely that warning level criteria will be met later on Tuesday for high wind advisories in the Livingston and Nye areas and highway travel could be dangerous for high profile vehicles at this time.
