.DISCUSSION...Rain showers this evening will keep northwest
Montana wet, adding to Kalispell`s new record precipitation for
the month. Breaks in the clouds overnight could quickly lead to
foggy conditions for valleys, leading to a slower morning commute.

Thursday will be mild, with another round of showers increasing
from west to east through the afternoon and evening. These taper
off and become more isolated by Friday morning.

The mild and occasionally wet pattern will continue into next
week. Fog will be an issue at times. Passes may also see mixed
rain and snow at times into the middle of next week.


.AVIATION...Despite mostly cloudy skies, more fog is possible
tonight and tomorrow morning due to recent precipitation. KGPI and
KMSO are the most likely suspects, and similar to previous
mornings, midnight through a couple hours after sunrise are the
most favored times. Winds will be light for the next 24 hours,
save for KBTM, which may see a couple hours of gusts to 20 kts
this afternoon.
