Montana Weather Summary
National Weather Service Great Falls MT
320 PM MST Thu Dec 14 2017

Today...Widespread mid level cloudiness over eastern Montana was
forced east out of the state today as high pressure aloft moved in
from the west. Otherwise, skies were mostly sunny across western and
central Montana, but low clouds and freezing fog lingered through
the afternoon in some western and southwest valleys, causing icy
roads and bridges. Winds were light in those mountain areas as well,
but west winds of 10 to 20 mph were common over the plains. Gusts of
35 to 50 mph occurred along the Rocky Mountain Front.

At 3 PM MST...Temperatures had only warmed into the 20s in the
valleys, but 30s and 40s were common elsewhere. The coolest location
was Three Forks at 19 degrees, while the warm spot was Choteau at 50

Overnight...Low clouds and fog will linger in the valleys of western
and southwest Montana, while mainly high cloudiness spreads
southeast across the remainder of the state. Westerly winds of 10 to
20 mph will also continue over the plains, with gusts of 35 to 50
mph along the east slopes of the Rockies, while winds remain light
in the valleys. Valley lows will be in the single digits and teens,
but lows in the 20s to lower 30s are expected elsewhere.
