A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY has been issued for the Glacier area and along the Rocky Mountain Front until noon Today.

A LAKE WIND ADVISORY is in effect for Fort Peck Reservoir until 8 pm Tonight.

Today we will have an increase in cloud cover, cooler temperatures, and accumulating snow. The high temperatures for today will stay in the '40s, '50s, and the '20s and '30s in the mountains. An area of low pressure will move through the state and produce a combination of rain/snow in the lower elevations and accumulating snow in the higher elevations/mountains. The roads will be wet and in the higher elevations slushy. During the afternoon, an isolated thunderstorm will develop in western and southeast of the state. Tomorrow will be a rinse and repeat of today, but the sun will make a brief appearance. The highs will slightly warm back to the '50s and '60s, and the win will increase. Thursday will start off as a decent day. The state will have partly cloudy skies, average temperatures, and light winds. By late afternoon/early evening, the clouds will increase, and stormy conditions will move back through the state. Eastern Montana temperatures will reach the upper '60s and '70s; the rest of the state temperatures will stay '60s and '50s. Friday, another low pressure will bring isolated thunderstorms cloudy skies and slightly cooler temperatures. Saturday, the sun will return with light winds and comfortable temperatures, but by Sunday, unsettling weather returns back to the state.

Enjoy your day,
