Montana’s snowpack is encouraging right now. All basins are above average as it stands right now. The latest mountain snow has pushed numbers significantly. While this is encouraging it is important that we stay mindful of how quickly the snow begins to melt and how our runoff season begins to pick up.

This week will once again bring warmer temperatures with highs expected to top out in the middle 70s by Thursday. Your Memorial Day weekend will likely be cooler with scattered showers through Monday. Highs are expected to be in the low 50s Saturday through Monday with rain for the valleys and a mix of rain and snow for the mountains in the region.
