A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY continues for areas along the Rocky Mountain Front for blowing snow and difficult travel.

The stormy and snowy pattern that gripped Montana over the holiday weekend has given way to a warmer and windier pattern. This wind is still causing blowing and drifting with reduced visibility from Great Falls north to the East Glacier area. Lane sizes have been reduced because of the drifting, and visibility has been reduced to near zero at times. Tough travel is still possible in this area through Tuesday. Otherwise, enjoy the quiet weather. Tuesday will be a partly to mostly cloudy day with more wind off of the Rocky Mountain Front. Wind speeds there could top 40mph, but temperatures will top 40 for much of the state. More of that recent snow will be melting. Wednesday will be another mild and windy day for much of the state, highs will again top out in the 40s. A minor cold front will bring a few light snow showers to central Montana early on Thursday but there will not be any accumulation. The next chance at accumulating snow in the lower elevations will come Sunday as another cold front drops out of Canada. December is off to a docile start.
Have a great day.
