best weather in the fall?

I'm thinking about some hiking in Big Sky. What is the weather like in late September through October?

Fall colors should be stunning, thanks to cool and cold nights. There will likely still be plenty of sunshine, but you know, these weather questions are pretty impossible to answer. Here in Montana, anything could be happening, from 70 degrees to snowing. It's also hunting season, so stay within National or State Parks, or wear flourescent orange.

As stated Montana weather can change quickly and be unpredictable. I would say late Sept will usually be nice, October can be beautiful or cold, especially toward evenings. The temps will drop quickly late afternoon and the evening and nights will definitely be chilly. Are you talking day hikes, or overnight camping type of hiking? That would make a huge difference as well.
