Although we are less than two weeks away from the official start of Spring, there’s bit more rain and snow on the radar this morning.  While this storm will predominantly be concentrated on the Continental Divide, some light snow and rain/ snow mix will move East through the rest of the state. This will mainly cause issues along the passes, and in higher elevations.  Despite the snow, temperatures will continue to creep up as the day in Southern and Western Montana, reaching above freezing in many locations.  Once this precipitation moves out of Western Montana tomorrow night, the weekend will be dry and beautiful.

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.
