A little light snow will fly on the final night of November into the first day of December. Snow will accumulate up to an inch or two over some of the mountain passes by Tuesday morning. The north slopes of the Little Belt Mountains, the Continental Divide, and the higher elevations of central Montana will have the best chance for a light accumulation. Some slippery spots will be found through Tuesday morning. This area of low pressure will quickly move to the south and by Tuesday afternoon most of the state will have abundant sunshine. Highs will be in the 30s. There will be a little light snow Tuesday night into Wednesday morning across far northeast and eastern Montana, but high pressure will move in and set up camp for a while, a long while. Sunshine will be widespread across the state through the rest of the week, this upcoming weekend, into the beginning of next week. Persistent high pressure will create clear skies, but different temperature and wind conditions. The valleys will be cold and calm with inversions developing. The plains will be windy but warmer. The next chance for a storm system and snow will not come until the middle of the second week of December, so enjoy this unusual quiet stretch.
Have a great day.
