A HIGH WIND WARNING is in effect for many counties in central Montana until this evening.  Wind gusts have already been recorded up to 79 miles per hour over the last 24 hours, and they’re expected to top out around 70 miles per hour today.  However, despite all of the wind, temperatures will stay mild today until the cold front moves through tonight, bringing rain and snow showers along with it.  For the rest of the week, scattered snow showers will continue on and off, but a big storm is brewing for Friday, continuing through the weekend.

Have a great day.

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.
