A cold front will continue to move through Montana into Wednesday morning. Snow showers will move through the mountains, with a mix of rain and snow in the lower elevations. The Continental Divide will limit the precipitation to the east, and enhance it to the west. A quick coating of snow is likely over the mountain passes, and a few of the lower elevations near the Divide could also pick up a quick inch or so tonight into Wednesday morning. A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY has been issued for southern Gallatin and Madison Counties for the West Yellowstone area. Wednesday, some snow showers will fly in the mountains, otherwise it will be a partly cloudy and blustery day. Highs will be in the 40s to near 50 in the lower elevations, 20s and 30s in the mountains. Thursday will be a nice, quiet day with light wind, partly cloudy skies, and temperatures in the 30s and 40s. A large area of storminess will move in from the Pacific on Friday. Heavy mountain snow is likely from California through Utah. This storm will push clouds toward Montana through the day Friday, but little snow should fall until late Friday night. That’s when low pressure will move toward Montana for the weekend. Saturday will be mostly cloudy with a few snow showers. Sunday, there’s a possibility for a more widespread accumulating snow event. Several waves of low pressure will move through the West over the weekend, and the exact position of those storms is still up in the air somewhat. So stay tuned to potential updates in the forecast as we get closer to the weekend.
Have a great day!
