A WIND CHILL ADVISORY is in effect until 11 am today for places along the hi-line from Cut Bank all the way to the Dakotas, and down in southwestern Montana including Dillon and areas near Yellowstone National Park.

Another day, another wind chill advisory here in the Treasure State.  A deep upper- level trough is situated over the western United States, and will remain there through the end of the week.  This means the weather is going to be clear and cold, while precipitation will stay to our South and West.  Although these persistent low wind chill values are uncomfortable and down- right dangerous at times, the skies will stay clear for the rest of the week.  This weekend is when we’ll finally see some new weather roll in, with light snow and very high winds.

Enjoy the sunshine today!

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.
