A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect until Friday for many parts of western Montana. Love it or hate it, more snow is on its way.  After a very overcast week, the sun peeked through the clouds a bit today, but another storm is developing to our North and already moving into parts of northern Montana.  With this new snow accumulation and wind gusts up to 30mph, visibility will be low on roadways tomorrow, especially during the early morning hours.  After tomorrow night, the storm will move off to our South, and then calm, cold weather will persist through the weekend.  On Monday, the southwestern part of the state will see some scattered snowfall, but it won’t produce nearly as much accumulation as we’ve seen this week.  Temperatures over the weekend will get down to the teens and single digits, some very festive weather ahead for us.

Bundle up out there and stay safe.

A proud graduate of the University of Missouri, Katie chose to major in meteorology when a severe winter storm hit her college town, canceling class for almost a week. She was taking an introductory meteorology course and was fascinated learning how and why the storm came through. After college, Katie moved to Madrid, Spain to teach English for a year, enjoying the mild Mediterranean climate. However, Katie is no stranger to severe weather. Growing up in St. Louis, she has seen everything from flash flooding and funnel clouds to extreme thunderstorms and even thundersnow! But even with all of this experience, nothing could prepare her for winter in Montana. Despite the harsh winter, Katie is excited to forecast and learn about mountain weather patterns, and to live in a state with such fantastic mountains and top-notch stargazing. Katie is the meteorologist on Daybreak, every morning at 6.
