Spring storm moves eastward!

A mix of rain, snow and snow pellets have been seen this weekend over parts of Montana. The ground seems warm enough to melt the snow at the lower elevations.

Gusty southwest winds return Monday and push the highs back into the 50’s as we begin to dry out.

Eastern Montana continues to monitor high water due to rain, snow and snowmelt. I hope you enjoy what is left of your weekend!
