Many flood watches and warnings have expired, but a Flood Warning remains in effect for the Lincoln area.

These flooding concerns remain due to half an inch to three quarters of an inch that fell across the Lincoln Valley in the past 72 hours and even closer to an inch that fell in the surrounding mountains.

All residents in the Lincoln area have been dealing with flooding concerns for weeks but should remain vigilant and to keep taking necessary actions.

We are nearing the end of May now and there is plenty of snowpack remaining in the mountains. 

All basins in Montana remain above 100% except the Smith-Judith-Mussellshell Basin which is at 88%.

Temperatures today were below average with scattered showers across the region, which are expected to come to an end this evening.

Temperatures will rise back to average or above average on Sunday afternoon. Areas in southwest portions of the state will see some showers tomorrow afternoon, including Helena.

Great Falls will be seeing mostly sunny skies.

Temperatures are looking to remain in the mid-seventies for the remainder of the week but scattered showers and even some isolated thunderstorms will be possible throughout the work week.
