A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY has been issued for the northern Rocky Mountain Front, Kings Hill Pass and the Raynesford area for Saturday night into Sunday.

Merry Christmas! Once again Montana had quiet weather on the holiday, but things will get a little spicier this weekend. A week area of low pressure will move through the state with areas of snow, mainly in the mountains. The Rocky Mountain Front and north-central Montana will have a steadier period of light snow on Sunday, but the lower elevations will not see more than 1-3". The higher elevations in the mountains could see as much as 6" of snow by late Sunday. After a day with slightly above average temperatures on Saturday, Sunday's numbers will cool off closer to average. For this upcoming week and the final few days of 2020, the weather will be quiet with more sunshine and temperatures close to average for late December. Another minor storm system could bring mainly snow showers to the mountains on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. There still does not appear to be any major arctic outbreaks or heavy snowstorms through the beginning of January.
Have a great weekend!
