Warmer weather and sunshine will cause snowmelt from the mountains to keep river levels in southwest Montana and along the Rocky Mountain Front rising slowly. Streams and creeks in central and southwest areas will also continue to rise and likely leave their banks. Cascade, Gallatin and Judith Basin counties are currently under a Small Stream Flood Advisory.
A Flood Warning has been issued for the city of Lewistown as Spring Creek flooding is closing some roads and threatening a few homes.
Thursday mostly sunny and continued warm with a high in the lower 70’s.
Friday mostly sunny and the same trend, high near 70.
Saturday and Sunday plenty of sunshine but warm enough and the heating may trigger some afternoon and early evening showers and thunderstorms, although the chance if slight. Highs both days in the mid to upper 60’s.
Monday and Tuesday still a chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the mid to upper 60’s.
