Although there are no Watches or Warnings at this time throughout our area, the weather will be on the stormier side through the week and the upcoming weekend. Similar to last week, Montana is in a northwest flow with rounds of snow poised to move through the state. At the same time, bouts of strong wind will develop for much of the state. Arctic air is also in play with far northeast Montana plummeting to near -20. This is the heart of winter. The first wave of low pressure will stream toward the state on Tuesday with mostly cloudy skies, stronger wind and some areas of snow. The mountains and north-central Montana will have a few snow showers that could coat the ground. More widespread snow will develop late at night and continue into Wednesday morning. A light accumulation up to 2" is possible in the lower elevations. The mountains could see up to 8". That system will clear by Wednesday afternoon but another storm will approach later Thursday into Friday. Thursday's snow showers will be confined to the mountains, but once again snow showers will move down across the lower elevations on Valentine's Day. Snow accumulation will be light. A third storm will move in this weekend with increasing snow showers on Saturday followed by more widespread snow again on Sunday. While none of these storms look overly impressive the pattern will remain active and wintry.
Have a great day.
