Blizzard conditions have hit Montana again over the weekend into Monday, but this time it was eastern Montana. Roads are closed because of reduced visibility and drifting around Zortman, Hays, Malta, Turner, and east of Miles City to Glendive. The snowstorm is moving out and improving conditions are moving in for the next few days. Tuesday will start out cold with many towns in the -0s to the 0s. Tuesday will be a mostly sunny day with less wind, highs will be in the 10s up on the Hi-Line, but 20s and 30s for the rest of the state. Wednesday will be another mild March day with highs in the 30s and even a few 40s. The next storm moves in with mild temperatures, clouds, and a few snow showers on Thursday. Highs again will be in the 30s and 40s, with a little more wind. Friday, areas of snow will move through western and central Montana with the possibility of a few inches of accumulation. This coming weekend will be very nice with high pressure moving in. Skies will be mostly sunny on Saturday and Sunday, and high temperatures will rise into the 30s and 40s. Saturday night, Daylight Saving Time goes into effect so while we lose an hour of sleep, sunset will be closer to 7:30pm for most of the state. It’s just another sign of winter winding down and spring being right around the corner.
Have a great day!
