A WIND CHILL ADVISORY has been issued for portions of north-central, central, and northeast Montana until 9 am.
A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY has been issued for portions of north-central, central, and west-central Montana.
The few disturbances passed through the state Tuesday will leave lingering flurries for some locations in central and southwest Montana. The state will finally get a break from the snow, and a ridge of high pressure will briefly bring a little more sunshine. The passage of Tuesday's front will cool daytime highs into the 20s and 30s. Another minor disturbance will move in tonight, increasing the wind and bringing scattered snow showers to locations west of the Divide. The valleys could see between one to three inches, and Lookout Pass could get between five to eight inches. Blowing and drifting snow will be an issue, so it is encouraged to give yourself extra time to travel.
Friday light snow will continue for the mountains and may spill into some locations in north-central, central, and southwest Montana. Breezy to windy conditions will allow fresh snow on the ground to blow and drift. Whiteout conditions are possible for areas off the Rocky Mountain Front.
Saturday and Sunday, a few scattered showers will linger in the mountains, and strong winds will feed daytime highs into the 30 and 40s.
By Monday, a few locations will hit 50 degrees.
Happy Black History Month.
