A WINTER STORM WARNING is still in effect for much of Northwestern and Central Montana until Wednesday afternoon. Areas of higher elevation could see up to two feet of snow, while valley locations will receive up to 7 inches.  A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect for parts of Eastern, Southwestern, and South Central Montana until Wednesday. Valleys will see snowfall levels of up to 4 inches, while higher elevations will get up to 10 inches.  Due to snow, ice, and limited visibility, many roads across the state are hazardous to drive on. Exercise caution when driving, as even interstate highways have areas with snow cover and ice.  Tomorrow evening, this snow will move South of us, and Thursday skies will clear up a bit. Overnight Thursday into Friday, another system will move in, bringing light snow for the end of the week.  Another cold front moves through Thursday night, dropping temperatures for the weekend.  After the front moves through, light snowfall and below-freezing temperatures will continue across Montana through the weekend. With this slow but steady stream of snowfall, it’s safe to say that this year we’ll have a White Christmas!

Have a good evening, and drive safely out there tomorrow!

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.

  1. I am wondering what happened to weatherman Curtis Grevanince? I enjoyed him because he didn’t stutter and trip over words and was entertaining. Please tell me he’s coming back.
