A HIGH WIND WARNING is in effect for the Rocky Mountain Front.  A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY in north-central Montana has been issued due to strong winds and blowing snow.

While the cloud cover today will be light, if at all, the weather won’t necessarily be calm.  Winds in north-central Montana will be in the 35-45 mph range, with gusts even higher.  As winds calm down Tuesday morning, snowfall will approach northwest Montana.  This snow will stay predominantly west of the Continental Divide on Tuesday, although there is a chance of evening snowflakes east of the Divide.  Wednesday will be a snowy day, but accumulations should be no more than 2-3″ around Helena and Great Falls.  Snow will clear out for the end of the work week as the positive temperature trend continues into the weekend.

Have a great day!
