Rainfall to Come Through Missoula This Weekend
Missoula will be experiencing some heavy rain this weekend. Meteorologist Corby Dickerson said there will be little to no rain on Saturday.
"But the pattern starts to shift a little bit, by the time we work our way in the Sunday night and the Monday," Dickerson said. "And we should see a little bit more precipitation in Missoula. Best case scenario we get half an inch, I say worse case scenario, we'll see a quarter inch of rain, which you know liquid wise, is more than we've seen in nearly a month I think."
Dickerson explained this rain couldn't come at a better time.
"Now fortunately we've been dry, we don't have a lot of low or even mid elevation snow pack," Dickerson said. "So we aren't anticipating a lot of runoff, and we anticipate a lot of the high mountain rain to absorb into the snow pack. So really what we're looking to see is small creeks,streams things of that nature."
After a rainy weekend, its is supposed to be sunny most of the week next week, with occasional showers.
