It's a cool Thursday morning and if you're out and about, you could see patchy fog and a little ice here and there on the roads, especially on the Montana side of the metro, if you're traveling east, look for snow on the other side of Kalispell.

At 6:07 a.m., it was 23 degrees in Bonners Ferry, 18 in Eastport, 29 in Porthill and 30 at MacArthur Lake; at 7:08 a.m., it was 31 in Troy and 19 in the Yaak.

It's cloudy right now in Bonners Ferry, but we should see sunshine as we head into the morning, we're looking for about 30 degrees at 8 a.m. in Bonners Ferry, 39 by noon with the sun breaking through, a high of 40 today at about 1 p.m. then it starts to cool back down into the 30s. Sunset in Bonners Ferry is 4:14 p.m. and we're back below freezing by 6 p.m., heading for a low tonight of 28.

In Troy, partly sunny and 35 degrees by noon, a high of 36 at about 2 p.m. sunset at 5:13 p.m. and back below freezing by 6 p.m. The low overnight should be right around 25.

There's a 50% chance of snow across the metro on Friday, expected around 10 a.m. in Bonners Ferry and noon in Troy, not expecting much in the way of accumulation, but we could see slick roads.
