A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect for counties on the Northern Rocky Mountain Front.  Light snowfall combined with strong wind gusts will create blowing snow conditions this afternoon.  Apart from the Rocky Mountain Front, today’s snowfall is not expected to cause any widespread issues.  Total accumulation should be fairly low for Helena, and higher in the mountains.

Friday, another system is coming through with more moisture.  This will stay in southern and southeastern Montana, strengthening as it moves into the central plains of the US this weekend.  Montana will only experience the very beginnings of this winter storm.  After it moves out of the Treasure State, conditions will remain dry for Saturday afternoon and Sunday.  Additionally, temperatures will stay right around the freezing point through next week. No subzero highs in sight!

Have a great day!
