Happy Halloween!

A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect for elevations above 6000′ in central Montana until Thursday.  Mountain passes like Deep Creek and Kings Hill will be snowy and slippery into Thursday.  Areas of light rain and mountain snow will continue through the night into the first of November on Thursday.  Thursday will be cool and showery, and some areas of central and eastern Montana could see a mix of rain and snow before changing over to plain rain.  Highs will be cool again, generally in the 40s to around 50, 30s in the mountains.  Friday, a warm front will push through the area with rain and warmer temperatures in the 50s to around 60.  Snow levels will rise to above 8000′ in the warmer air.  Wind will be strong out of the west.  Extreme northeast Montana will have a mix of rain and snow in some colder air in that part of the state.  Friday night, a cold front will move through the state with areas of rain mixing with and changing to snow.  Accumulation of several inches of snow will be confined to the higher terrain above 5000′.  Saturday may start out cloudy with a few areas of snow, but most of the day will be fairly quiet and cool with highs in the 40s, 30s in the mountains.  Mountain locales will be in the 30s with fresh snow in the morning.  Saturday afternoon will be dry for most of the state.  Sunday, another storm will move in with rain and wind for the lower elevations but a lot of snow and wind in the mountains.  Mountain passes will likely have difficult travel conditions.  Snow levels will lower Sunday night down to the valleys and the plains.  Next week, snow and colder temperatures will be found through much of Montana.  It is November…

Have a great day!
