Continued Strong Wind on the Rocky Mountain Front

It’s a tale of two cities- while the Helena Valley will remain fairly calm today, north-central Montana will experience strong winds and even ground blizzard conditions.  Extreme winds will be concentrated on the Rocky Mountain Front, where a BLIZZARD WARNING is in effect until Tuesday afternoon.  Strong winds and light snowfall, coupled with existing snow accumulation, will contribute to low visibility and potentially dangerous driving conditions.  For the latest information before you hit the road, check MDT Road Conditions.

As the snowfall to our northwest continues to push southeast, chances of snow will increase east of the Divide.  Helena and Great Falls could both see some snowfall tonight, but the higher chance is tomorrow morning.  We’ll be waking up to some fresh snowfall across north-central Montana tomorrow, and the snow will stick around for most of the day.

But, if you’re eager for spring to arrive, then the rest of this week might be more your style.  After Wednesday’s little bout of winter weather, the rest of the work week and weekend will be dry, with temperatures increasing day by day.

Have a great day!
