A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect in parts of western Montana until 10 am today.

We’ve been tracking the impending snow all week in the forecast, and now it’s started to make its way into the Treasure State.  Yesterday brought a light round of snow, and today will get another dusting as well.  Overnight tonight, another storm system will move in, and most of the state will get snow tomorrow.  Temperatures this weekend will be chillier, and snow will continue Saturday into Sunday, followed by a little bit of freezing rain later on Sunday.  Monday will bring much warmer temperatures (reaching into the 50s!) but Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday will be cooler with more snow, leading into the beginning of next month.

Drive safely this weekend!

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.
