A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect for central and eastern Montana until late this evening.

Thundersnow with a cold front blasted through the state on Sunday evening and this storm will have an impact on Monday's weather as well. Snow and wind will fly throughout much of central and eastern Montana making for difficult travel conditions. The Hi-Line from Havre to Glasgow will be especially snowy with up to 6" falling through the day. Snow will move back into areas like Helena and Great Falls this afternoon and evening. Some of that snow will be heavy closer to the Continental Divide. Highs will only be in the 20s and 30s. 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!
