A strong spring storm is beginning to move into western and 
southwestern MT this afternoon, bringing with it valley rain and 
mountain snow. Temperatures were seasonable across the state, but 
cooler temperatures once again prevailed over the northern portions 
of the region.

As of late this afternoon, light rain was moving into western and 
southwestern MT. Snow was falling, mainly for elevations above 7500 
feet. Light rain was falling for elevations below 7500 feet. Ice 
jams continue to affect portions of central MT around Roundup, with 
a flood advisory has been issued for Chouteau County. Afternoon 
temperatures were mostly in the 40s across the state, but Missoula 
did manage to reach a temperature of 58 degrees, while it was only 
35 above in Havre.

For tonight, expect rain and snow showers to affect much of the 
state. Some freezing rain and snow will affect the lower elevations 
of the far northern portions of the state later this evening. 
Overnight lows will generally range from the mid 20s to the mid 30s.
