We’ve finally made it to the end of another week, and what a week its been.  We’ve had lots of snow, severe weather, and rapidly changing conditions. The snow that came through yesterday is still lingering in southern and southwestern Montana, but the predominant issues heading into the weekend are low wind chills and dangerous driving conditions.  The snow will move out by late tonight, but the winds will pick up this weekend, causing low visibility on the roads and bitterly cold wind chills.  It is going to be slippery outside this weekend, whether you’re driving or walking. If you’re traveling anywhere, make sure to check out MDT Travel Info before you hit the road for the latest road conditions. And as always, catch us live tonight from 5-6 for Chief Meteorologist Curtis Grevenitz’s latest forecast.

Be careful, and have a wonderful weekend!

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.
