A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect until Saturday morning, and then will be upgraded to a WINTER STORM WATCH in anticipation of the heavy snowfall expected Saturday.  A WINTER STORM WARNING is in effect in southern Montana until Sunday morning.

It looks like winter just won’t quit.  After a snowy week, this weekend is going to bring even more snowfall to the Treasure State, and following that snowfall will be a very big dip in temperatures to start next week. Drive safely this 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.
