A WINTER STORM WATCH is in effect until Wednesday at midnight for counties on the northern Rocky Mountain Front.  Blowing and drifting snow is still an issue, but will not be as severe as last week.  A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect for western and southern Montana. More snow is expected today and coupled with wind this could create some hazardous driving conditions.

While the temperatures are still below freezing today, it feels mild out there compared to how cold it was last week.  We still have a bit of snow on the radar, but that is light and will move out by late tonight, bringing clear skies for most of the state tomorrow.  Temperatures will stay relatively mild for the rest of the week!

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.
