Rain chances do move back into the area Monday and certainly early Tuesday with limited sunshine to start our work week.

Saturday afternoon: Sunny, with a high near 58. We could see a little accumulation that will melt off in the afternoon.

That will lead us to Easter Sunday when conditions will be brighter and less windy.

Heavier rain Thursday into Thursday night.

The chief forecaster's assessment said: "As a weather system moves in from the south and comes up against cold air over the United Kingdom, there is a chance rain could turn to heavy snow in places".


Part of the problem is the cold front that pushed through yesterday isn't exiting quickly.

The latest computer models have trended upward with the strength of Sunday's system, and that means more snow is expected. The highest temperature recorded during March since 2000 was 90 degrees in 2015.

"The temperatures Sunday morning as people are getting around for church will probably be 28 to 30 degrees, but there will be wind chills down around 19 to 20 degrees", Barham said.

Heavy snow is possible for southern Scotland on the final day of the four-day long weekend.

Rain - Even if the weather looks favourable, you need a coat, waterproof pants, and good walking shoes. It will be partly sunny, with a high near 42 and a low around 25.


Maximum temperatures are expected to be in the low single figures in Scotland and high single figures elsewhere, and feeling cold in the gentle to moderate south-easterly winds.

Heavy rain will hit southwest England and parts of south Wales from 8pm tomorrow until midday on Monday, bringing the possibility of flooding and travel problems.

The Easter weekend is expected to be one of the busiest in years for travellers, with millions of Britons heading overseas as snow is forecast in parts of the country.

Tonight: Widespread haze. Mostly cloudy during the early evening, then clearing, with a low around 64.

As per the National Weather Service of Great Falls: Known flooded and closed roads are.near Snake Creek.New Hope Road south to Cline Road.
