A WIND CHILL ADVISORY will remain in effect for northeast Montana until 11 am.

A cooler airmass will linger and bring sub-freezing temperatures to the region due to an area of high pressure camped in central Canada. The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Chill Advisory for northeast Montana for wind chills down below 20 degrees. Light snow is a possibility today for northwest Montana. Accumulations will be on the light side; a trace to an inch of snowfall is expected. The highs will stay in the teens and 20s; for most of the state.

Tomorrow will be another chilly day; some locations west of the Divide will wake up to a light coating of snow on the ground, and wet roads will refreeze, creating slick conditions. Tomorrow daytime highs will trend below freezing for the entire state.

By mid-week, a warming trend is expected. The highs temperatures will climb back into the 30s and 40s. Light snow and wind will develop in portions of southwest Montana; Mountain passes in southwest Montana along with West Yellowstone could pick up a few inches of snow by Thursday.

Have a great day.
