A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY has been issued for the higher terrain of central Montana into Friday.

A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY has been issued for the Rocky Mountain Front and most areas west of the Continental Divide through Friday.

Thursday's temperatures will be quite comfortable. The highs will be in the 40s for most of Montana, with the exception of northeast Montana. A large low-pressure will move into western Montana, with mixed rain and snow in the lower elevations, and heavy snow in the mountains and mountain passes. Mountain passes over western areas may be challenging to travel. The east of the Divide will have strong winds and some snow showers, but at times, clouds and periods of sunshine. A weather disturbance will bring mountain snow through tonight before a mild cold front returns with cooler temperatures to the area on Friday. Friday will be mostly cloudy with scattered snow showers spread across the state. Minimal accumulation is expected; most areas may see a coating of snow if that. Saturday and Sunday will have areas of light snow and colder temperatures. The high temperature for Saturday will only reach the 20s and 30s. Sunday will have partly cloudy skies with scattered mountain snow showers. Highs will range from the 0s and 10s to the northeast, with the 20s for the rest of the state.

Enjoy today's Warmth.
