Forecasting Contest - Glasgow, MT Forecast for Tuesday 10/12

Today, I am writing my forecast from my alma mater in Gainesville, FL. We (the class) don't need to do a forecast this weekend since it's fall break, but I figured it wouldn't be a bad idea to keep up with the forecasts.

Our new location to forecast is Glasgow, Montana. Currently, a cold front is passing through the state bringing in showers. Glasgow should get hit with this relatively light rain later on today as the front pushes through. Skies should begin to clear up after the frontal passage based on visible satellite imagery. However, low clouds are showing up on the visible in what appears to be valleys. Therefore, valleys that have experienced some rain today might see some low cloudcover after the passage (You see how much I know about the topography of the west?).

As the night wears on, skies should start to clear out as the front moves out the state and high pressure rolls into the area. This should allow for cooler temperatures to move in. Tuesday should be a nice day as high pressure remains.

Tonight, expect clearer skies late with a low near 39. For Tuesday, expect sunny skies with a high near 60.
