Merry Christmas!  A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect for southcentral and southeast Montana.  Low pressure over the four corner states is moving up through the Rockies and will clip Montana tonight into Wednesday morning.  Light snow will fall for central and eastern Montana.  Most of western Montana near the Continental Divide will be dry.  Snow will accumulate a couple inches, and travel in this area will be slippery early on Wednesday.  Otherwise, Wednesday will be a partly cloudy day with highs in the 20s and low 30s.  Thursday there is a chance for snow in the western half of the state.  Snow will be light and could accumulate a couple inches in the mountains, with a coating up to an inch in the lower elevations.  Highs will remain cold in the 20s.  Friday will be mostly sunny with highs in the 20s to around 30.  This weekend, a new storm will move in.  Saturday will be windy and mild ahead of the cold front.  Some snow will fly in the western mountains, areas east of the Divide could see a little mix of rain and snow through the afternoon.  Sunday, a cold front will move through the state with falling temperatures and falling snow.  By Sunday afternoon, temperatures could drop into the 10s with snow and wind making for difficult travel.  New Year’s Eve on Monday will be partly cloudy with a few mountain snow showers.  Highs will be in the 10s and 20s.  New Year’s Day will be mostly cloudy with light snow for the new year.

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!
