Today's temperatures will stay below average. The high temperatures will remain in the '30s and '40s, while some areas along the Hi-Line will trend in the '20s. Southwest and Southcentral Montana will have freezing fog for the morning hours, and central Montana will have gusty winds that can cause blowing and drifting snow. The roads are still slick and covered with slush and ice, but overall today will be mostly to partly sunny skies. Moisture will creep it's way back into the state and carry into Wednesday, bringing a mix of light snow/freezing rain showers. The accumulations are mild and is expected only to bring an inch or so of additional snowfall. A cold front will enter the region late tonight and drop the temperatures for Wednesday. Wednesday expect mostly cloudy skies, colder temperatures, and breezy conditions. Western Montana temperatures will remain in the 40's central Montana, and also eastern Montana temperatures will only reach the 20's and 30's. Another system will only produce an inch or so in the lower elevations and an inch and a half in the higher elevations. The first day of spring will begin with colder air temperatures. Friday things will slightly warm-up and carry into the weekend.

Enjoy your day,
