A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY has been issued for parts of central and western Montana for Tuesday night into Wednesday afternoon.
Record snow and record cold hit Montana over Easter Weekend. The weather pattern will remain cold and snowy as another storm will move in for Tuesday and Wednesday. Tuesday will be generally cloudy with a mix of light rain and snow in the lower elevations, and snow in the mountains. Highs will warm slightly into the 40s in the lower elevations, supporting a rain/snow mix. Another cold front will come down from Canada late Tuesday evening with falling temperatures that will change any mix over to snow. A few inches will accumulate Tuesday night through Wednesday morning. Travel will be the worst over the mountain passes but slippery conditions are possible in some lower elevations as well. Wednesday will be another cold day with highs only in the 20s and 30s. After a chilly night Wednesday night, temperatures will start a slow rebound along with a drier pattern settling in. Thursday will be mostly sunny and crisp. Friday will have a good amount of sunshine along with warmer temperatures. This weekend will have a few mixed rain and snow showers on Saturday with partly cloudy skies, but Sunday should be partly cloudy with near normal temperatures for a change. Highs in the 50s and 60s with some sunshine will continue into the start of next week. So once we get through this next round of snow, Montana will settle into a more mid-spring pattern.
Have a great day.
