A WIND CHILL WARNING remains in effect for portions of northeast, north-central, central, and west-central Montana until Friday morning.

A WIND CHILL ADVISORY remains in effect for parts of southwest, west-central, central, north-central, south-central, and southeast Montana until Thursday.

Over the past few days, the forecast has remained the same, cold and snowy. Unfortunately, Thursday will not be any different. Daytime highs will stay below zero, and this arctic blast will continue to shatter records around the state. Fort Benton, Shelby, Cut Bank and Dunkirk all set new record lows. Gusty winds will result in dangerously cold wind chills and will cause light snow to blow and drift, reducing visibility at times. The next weather maker will move in from the south and will produce light to moderate snow through the overnight hours for southwest Montana. The mountains and mountain passes such as; Chief Joseph, MacDonald, Rogers, Bozeman, and Homestake Pass will be impacted. Prepare for winter driving conditions. The lower elevation accumulations will stay under five inches.

Friday into the weekend will remain bitterly cold.

Saturday southwest Montana will see more snow, and by Sunday, most of the state daytime highs will start to climb above zero.

Bundle up, and Happy Black History Month.
