A WIND CHILL WARNING remains in effect for portions of northeast Montana until Wednesday morning.
A WIND CHILL ADVISORY remains in effect for portions of central and north-central, south-central, southeast Montana until Thursday.
A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY remains in effect for west-central Montana until 11 am.

After a weekend of cold temperatures and snow, the upcoming work week will not be any different. Periods of light snow will fall throughout the morning. Southwest Montana can expect between one to three inches of snow, but the combination of fresh snowpack, light winds, and cloud cover will keep today's daytime highs below zero for most of the state. You need to pay close attention to livestock and pets from dangerously cold temperatures. If you have to travel, prepare for winter driving conditions.

Tomorrow will be another frigid day. Temperatures could challenge records for cold. Daytime highs in most locations daytime will trend below zero. Yes, the wind will be on the light side, but any wind will contribute to dangerous wind chills. Very cold wind chill values can cause frostbite to exposed skin in as little as 5-10 minutes.

The arctic chill is expected to remain with us through the end of the workweek.

Bundle up, and Happy Black History Month.
