Storm Center Update - Saturday AM

Your Saint Patrick's Day forecast looks great, as does tomorrow's.  By early next week, highs start to fall and we bring in a chance of some rain.

Getting you started this morning, there is patchy fog across our southeast.  It's not as dense or widespread this morning due to stronger south winds tearing the fog apart.  It's just something to watch out for.

For those outside for the holiday or parade, things are shaping up to be quite nice!  Records should easily fall West River with highs across the map near 80.  A few high clouds start to filter in this evening as a slowly approaching cold front churns through Montana.  On a side note, this system will bring a lot of snow to the Rockies.  It will be interesting to see how much Montana gets as that could impact spring melt-off locally. 

Tonight, it will again be warm, only bottoming out in the lower 50s and upper 40s.  Tomorrow brings much more of the same with noticeably increased winds.  There will be more afternoon clouds but it should stay dry.

The rain chance increases overnight tomorrow into Monday morning.  The best chances are in SE KELOLAND Monday.  A lot of this looks to be scattered, but we're in thunderstorm territory (in March).  Some of these could be on the stronger side so watch out for the winds.

The other big weather story next week is the falling temperatures.  Lows will be back in the 30s for a few days and high will be right around 60 from Tuesday through Friday.  Those numbers would be huge any other March, but when compared with last week, don't compete.
