A WINTER STORM WARNING continues for extreme northeast Montana into Wednesday morning.
A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY continues for most of central and northern Montana into Wednesday morning.

Rain will continue to change over to snow through the night. Some areas that have had a few inches of snow will see a few more pile up overnight as well. Snow will vary from a coating up to 4-5" over central Montana. Northeast Montana under the WINTER STORM WARNING could have as much as 10" by Wednesday morning. Regardless of snow accumulation, icy spots will develop as temperatures drop into the 10s and 20s causing wet roads to become very slick. Your sidewalk, deck or front steps could also get iced over so please be careful. Wednesday will start out mostly cloudy with a few lingering areas of light snow. The snow will wind down through the morning with clouds breaking up through the afternoon. Highs will be much colder, only in the 20s and low 30s. Clouds will clear Wednesday night and temperatures will drop into the 0s and 10s. Thursday will be a bright and sunny day for all of Montana, and highs will top out in the 30s to near 40. Nice late fall weather will continue through Friday into the weekend. Temperatures will warm back into the 40s and 50s for highs with mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies through Saturday. Sunday will start out mild but a cold front will bring colder temperatures and snow showers late in the day. This front will also signify a pattern change that will continue through the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Highs will be down in the 20s and 30s with several waves of snow coming through Montana. A more winterlike pattern will settle in for the end of November through the beginning of December.
Have a great day.
