A WIND CHILL ADVISORY is in effect in northeastern Montana, expiring at 8 am Wednesday.  Wind chill values were as low as 20 degrees below zero in Glasgow earlier this morning.  Additionally, most of Montana is under a WINTER STORM WATCH starting later this afternoon and lasting until Friday.  A big winter storm is coming our way, starting late tonight as a wintry mix in southwestern Montana, but continuing as snow on Thursday.  Thursday, temperatures will start out mild in the western part of the state, but drop significantly as the front moves through.  The snow should move out by Friday evening, and the weekend should be dry with a few clouds.

As always, tune in tonight for the latest severe weather updates.

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.
