A fast moving system approaches with a cold front to the Treasure State today bringing rain and snow showers to parts of Montana. The snow will accumulate mainly on grassy surfaces, as the ground is relatively warm.

In the evening, scattered chances go up again slightly as they make the shift from rain, to a mix, and then over to snow for the late evening and overnight.

The forecast for Monday calls for strong winds and temperatures in the 30s, according to the weather service.

The advisory was in effect until 9 a.m. "These are could see 2 to 5" of snow, with locally higher amounts possible. High 60 early but temperatures falling into the 50s by the afternoon.

The next chance of rain arrives over the weekend on Sunday, but this point it does not look as potent, severe, or widespread as recent Sunday storms. Between showers clouds will stay mostly cloudy, preventing afternoon warmth - highs will only reach 42 degrees.
