This week will bring a variety of different weather features.  Temperatures and wind chill values this morning have been well below freezing, and a WIND CHILL ADVISORY was issued for northeast Montana.  A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY has been posted for north-central Montana including Helena, Great Falls, and the Rocky Mountain Front. This is not due to snowfall but high wind gusts which will cause blowing and drifting snow, and potentially low visibility on roads.  The time frame for difficult road conditions will primarily be Monday night and Tuesday.

For the first two days of the week, we’ll get some sunshine.  A weak ridge high pressure will keep us dry, but not for long- there’s more snow coming Wednesday and Thursday.  However, sunshine will be back in the picture by Thursday and Friday when another weak ridge will come through the Treasure State.

Have a great week!
