We are going to have partly cloudy skies tonight with patchy freezing fog around in northeastern Montana. A few snow showers are also possible tonight, generally after midnight and especially in the mountains, as a disturbance begins to impact our area. It is also going to be gusty tonight along the Rocky Mountain Front as sustained wind speeds are going to be between 15 and 30 mph, and it is going to be a bit breezy tonight in some areas east of the Rocky Mountain Front as sustained wind speeds are going to be between 10 and 20 mph. Also, lows tonight are going to be in the 20s and upper teens in most locations.

For tomorrow, we are going to have decreasing clouds with a chance of snow showers, especially during the morning and especially in the mountains, as a disturbance passes through our area. Little to no snow accumulation is expected in the lower elevations, and light snow accumulations are possible in the mountains. Widespread breezy conditions are also expected tomorrow as sustained wind speeds are going to be between 10 and 25 mph, and a few gusts over 40 mph are possible. Also, highs tomorrow are going to be in the 30s and low 40s in most locations.

On Saturday, we are going to have partly to mostly cloudy skies with a few isolated snow showers around, generally during the afternoon/evening and generally in the mountains, as a cold front begins to approach our area. Snow showers are then likely on Sunday as this cold front passes through our area, and light snow accumulations of a coating to an inch or two are possible in the lower elevations. It is also going to be cloudy on Sunday.
