A FLOOD WARNING continues for the Milk River near Glasgow.

An AREAL FLOOD ADVISORY continues for northern Phillips and Valley Counties for melting snow.

A WINTER STORM WARNING has been issued for portions of central, north-central and west-central Montana for heavy snow.

A WINTER STORM WATCH has been issued for north-central Montana and along the Rocky Mountain Front for Friday into Saturday.

Today, we will have partly to mostly cloudy skies and lighter winds. A mild disturbance will cause a few flurries to fly, but tomorrow is when the state will have a better chance of accumulating snow showers and colder temperatures. The high temperatures for tomorrow will start off relatively mild in portions of the state, but along the Hi-Line, the high temperatures will be in the teens and 20's. Tomorrow's system will be harsh, and will first hit the Rocky Mountain Front early in the morning, but by late afternoon/evening, the capital will have snow. Colder temperatures will invade the state and will stick around through mid next week for areas along the Hi-Line. Tomorrow the state will be breezy, and with the falling snow, it can cause blowing and drifting snow that can reduce visibility tomorrow night into Saturday. Travel will be especially difficult along the Hi-Line and the Rocky Mountain Front. Saturday's weather will be similar to Friday's; colder temperatures, gusty winds, and snow. Saturday's temperatures will be colder, especially in portions of central Montana. The snow will taper off late Saturday, but driving/walking can still be difficult with icy streets/roads.

Enjoy your day,
