A WIND CHILL ADVISORY is in effect this morning for counties in eastern Montana. The easternmost portion of the state is much colder than the rest of Montana, due to an arctic air mass over the midwestern U.S. which has extended into eastern Montana.
Central Montana, while chilly, will not be as dangerously cold as the midwest. Also, because of the intense low pressure over the central United States, high pressure is moving into the western half of the country. That high pressure is responsible for the clear and calm weather that will prevail through the end of the work week.
The next round of active winter weather will move through this weekend, starting very late Saturday and continuing through the beginning of next week. Sunday- a.k.a. the day of the “big game,” will be hit the hardest with snow and wind. It’ll be a great day to veg out and watch some football.
Have a great Tuesday!
