Winter this year in Montana has been brutal.  After multiple winter storms last week, arctic air has now settled in and is here to stay for this week. If it’s not one thing, it’s another.  A WIND CHILL ADVISORY is in effect until noon for many counties in Montana.  Our weather will remain clear and cold through the end of the week, with another chance of snow coming this weekend.

If this year’s brutal winter has got you down, then I’ve got good news: Spring officially starts in one month!

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. Katie is the meteorologist on Daybreak, every morning at 6.
