A WIND CHILL ADVISORY is in effect until noon today for parts of northern, central and eastern Montana.  Wind chill values could reach as low as 30 degrees below zero.  A WIND CHILL WARNING is in effect until noon today for counties along the hi-line, where wind chills are expected to be as low as 50 degrees below zero.  A WINTER STORM WATCH is in effect until Thursday morning for counties along the northern Rocky Mountain Front.  Wind chills are very low there, wind gusts are very high, and more snow is on its way.  And finally, a FLOOD WARNING is in effect in Townsend until tonight.

Today, temperatures are cold, and wind chills are even worse.  The radar is generally clear across the state, and things will stay clear until Wednesday night, when our next round of snow moves through.  Thursday, that snow will continue, and we’ll see a few inches of accumulation.  Another storm will come through Saturday night, continuing through Sunday.

Stay warm out there 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.
