The current weather pattern is stalled over the central and northern Rockies with the greatest impacts across Idaho, Wyoming and Montana. 

A stalled upper level Low will continue to wrap bands of moisture around and some moderate to heavy rainfall is possible at times for the remainder of Monday afternoon through Tuesday afternoon. 

Because of the continued chances of moderate to heavy rainfall there is a "FLOOD WATCH" up across SW Montana mostly east of the divide through midnight tonight. 

Small streams and creeks will likely see high water runoff with moderate to heavy rain impacting the region over the next couple of days.
