A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect for counties along the Northern Rocky Mountain Front. High winds, blowing and drifting snow, and additional snowfall are expected. Many roads are closed in this area and travel could be dangerous to impossible. Take caution in this area.

While wind and ground blizzard conditions continue along the Northern Rocky Mountain Front, the rest of the state will remain clear and calmer, with temperatures reaching up into the high 20s and 30s (and even above freezing in some places!)  In addition to the wind in Northwestern Montana, some light snow will move in later today.  The rest of the state should stay calm and clear until Friday, when our next chance for widespread snow will come.

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.
