A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY has been issued for the Rocky Mountain Front and East Glacier until noon.

The state will have an increase in cloud cover, and the high temperatures will be much warmer than yesterday but will still stay below average. Two fronts will move through the region today; one will move eastward and will bring gusty westerly winds and scattered snow showers to the mountains west of the Divide. The second front will move south out of Canada tonight, and is known as an Alberta Clipper, which is a fast-moving low-pressure, also known as the Saskatchewan Screamer. Light snow, strong winds, and colder temperatures are typically associated with Alberta Clippers.

Tomorrow, most of the region's high temperatures will drop below freezing following the passage of Tuesday's front. Light showers will fall in the mountains and may spill into central Montana. Most of the mountains may get between 2-4" and areas in central Montana could get up to 1".

Thursday, warmer air will attempt to move in as the wind shift back to a southwesterly flow. The highs will stay in the mid to upper 30s, and most of the region will have mostly sunny skies.

Friday, the temperatures will climb to the 40s, but the wind is expected to pick up.

Have a great day.
