A WIND CHILL ADVISORY remains in effect for northern Montana because of dangerous wind chills and frostbite potential until 5 pm.
A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY has been issued for southwest and southcentral Montana for light snow until late MORNING.
A FLOOD WARNING remains in effect for the city of Choteau because of an ice jam until 2:15 pm.

Dangerously cold temperatures will continue through the mornings hours for along the Hi-Line and in portions of northeastern Montana. A combo of a pacific disturbance and a Canadian cold front will bring a quick shot of mild snow showers and gusty northwest winds. The snow accumulations are expected to be light and range from just a coating up to 1" in some of the valleys, and 3-4'' in the mountains. The high temperatures along the Hi-Line will only reach the single digits. Warmer air will pour into southwestern and southcentral Montana, but it will not be until several days later that the entire state slightly warms up. The winds will increase today and can potentially cause blowing and drifting snow. Tomorrow will be mostly sunny in eastern Montana and mostly cloudy, in the western part of the state. Mild snow showers will fall for the higher terrain of northwest Montana. The arctic air will remain trapped along the Hi-Line and in northeastern Montana, but In the next few days, the temperatures will continue to climb.Enjoy your day,
