A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect for the higher elevations of central Montana into late Monday night, and for eastern Montana until Tuesday morning.
Parts of Montana have been walloped by snow over the past 24 hours. From thundersnow around Helena, to heavy windswept snow in northeast Montana, to intense snow showers near the Rocky Mountain Front and Great Falls, these conditions have made traveling difficult. Snow showers and squalls will continue tonight and gradually taper off by early Tuesday morning. Tuesday will be a quieter day with mostly sunny skies and highs in the 30s to around 40. Temperatures will start warming on Wednesday back into the 40s for highs. A few snow showers will move through the state in the afternoon and evening, otherwise it will be a partly cloudy day. Thursday will be partly cloudy and windy across the prairies, highs will be in the 40s to around 50. Friday will be a beautiful day with sunshine and warmer temperatures in the 40s and 50s. Once again wind will gust up over 30mph across the prairies. The warmer weather will continue into the weekend with Saturday's highs in the 40s and 50s but a cold front will move through Saturday afternoon with scattered snow showers. Sunday is March 1st and the month will start off quietly with just a few snow showers mainly over southern Montana. Overall, March's weather will increase in activity with a stormier and snowier pattern developing.
Have a great day!
