A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect for the western and central part of Montana.  Light snow will develop tonight for areas from Great Falls to Kalispell to Butte through the Capital.  Snow will not only accumulate in the mountains but also in the lower elevations.  Areas of snow will increase overnight into Tuesday early morning.  Roads will likely become slippery with temperatures dropping below freezing.  Election Day Tuesday will have snow diminishing early, mostly cloudy skies following except in eastern Montana where there will be nice sunshine.  Highs will hold in the 20s and 30s for a lot of the state.  Late Tuesday evening, another round of snow will develop for much of western and central Montana.  Wednesday will start out snowy as another Canadian cold front will bring even colder air into the state.  Highs will only be in the 20s to around 30.  Wednesday night will be coldest night of the season with temperatures dropping into the 0s and 10s.  Some of the normally colder mountain locales and areas along the Rocky Mountain Front could drop below 0.  Thursday will be mostly sunny and slightly warm.  Another cold front will come through Friday night with snow showers.  This weekend will be crisp and cold, but mostly sunny by Saturday afternoon.  The weather will certainly be more active and winter-like this week.

Have a great day.
