A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect for parts of central and eastern Montana through tonight into Wednesday.

Widespread light snow will fly across much of Montana into Wednesday morning. While most areas will see a modest accumulation of a coating up to 2", the snow will be heavy in the central mountains where as much as 12" could accumulate. Roads will be slick through the morning hours on Wednesday. Snow will gradually taper off throughout the area in the morning. Highs will range from near 0 in northeast Montana to the 20s and low 30s for most of the rest of the state. Thursday will be a quiet but breezy day. Highs will warm into the 30s and 40s with the strongest wind across the north-central part of the state. Friday is Valentine's Day and there will be scattered snow showers and a decent wind. Highs will be in the 30s to around 40. The snow may accumulate up to an inch in the lower elevations, with a few inches possible in the mountains. This weekend will have a new storm approach later on Saturday. Saturday will be mostly cloudy and breezy, with just a few snow showers mainly in the mountains. Low pressure will likely move through Montana on Sunday with more widespread snow. Travelers should know that snow will be widespread through the Pacific Northwest and the Rockies.
Have a great day.
