Storm Team 11 Forecast: Cloudy with scattered flurries

Tuesday, 13 Mar, 2018

TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy skies linger, with a cold overnight low temperature of 26 degrees.

Thursday high pressure will begin to slide off to the East creating a return flow off the Gulf pushing highs back to near 70 with clouds working over the region. Showers will intensify late tonight through tomorrow morning.

Same story for Wednesday - scattered snow showers all through the day. Overnight lows will be in the 30s and lower 40s, which is well above average.

COLD THROUGH WEDNESDAY: Unseasonably cool for the first half of the week.

The Cascades will see snow showers, which is some good news for skiers and snowboarders! Highs will be in the upper 20s this afternoon, and breezy northwest winds will make feels-like temperatures a fair amount cooler. Snow levels will fall to 3,800' Wednesday morning and 2,100' in the evening.

"South of these areas, we are only expecting a trace to 1".

By the end of the week, temperatures try and rebound slightly. The most widespread lake effect snow should come to an end by Thursday.

Highs on Monday will be very similar to what we saw Sunday, topping out in the low 40s in most areas with a stiff northwest wind gusting to 25 miles per hour or more by late Monday.

Sunday: Mostly sunny with highs in the around 50°. If the low can develop and track across western Montana, bands of moderate to heavy snow would be likely for mountain passes. Rain showers will be possible into the weekend, with highs around 49 degrees on St. Patrick's Day.
