 Montana Weather Summary
 National Weather Service Great Falls MT 
 321 PM MST Sat Dec 16 2017
 
 At 3 PM it was 29 in Bozeman, 30 in Billings, 32 in Missoula, 33 in 
 Great Falls, 35 in Helena, and 37 degrees in Glasgow. Pockets of 
 mainly light snow were lingering across Western, Southwest, North-
 Central, and South-Central Montana. Skies were partly to mostly 
 cloudy over the state.
 
 West of the Continental Divide, mostly cloudy skies are expected 
 through tonight. East of the divide, significant clearing is 
 expected as a disturbance exits to the east. Most of the lingering 
 snow will taper-off this evening, but snow remains in the forecast 
 through tonight west of the Continental Divide as Pacific moisture 
 continues to stream into the area. Patchy freezing fog is also 
 possible tonight. Lows will reach the teens or 20`s for most, but 
 colder readings, in the single digits on either side of 0 degrees, 
 are expected for the Southwest Montana valleys.
 
 Cloud cover will increase from west to east on Sunday as the 
 aforementioned stream of Pacific moisture extends east of the 
 divide. Scattered snow showers are expected along and west of the 
 divide, while any freezing fog should dissipate by late morning. 
 Afternoon high temperatures will mainly reach the 20`s or 30`s west 
 of the divide and in Southwest Montana, while highs mainly in the 
 30`s or 40`s are expected elsewhere.
