A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for western and central Montana will expire by Saturday afternoon.
It's the final weekend of February and it's the full "Snow Moon". There is a little disturbance that will bring light snow and briefly colder temperatures. That system will clear later Saturday with Sunday being a bit different. After a cold and snowy start to the weekend, there will be more sunshine, wind and warmer temperatures for Sunday. Very strong wind is likely off of the Rocky Mountain Front on Sunday with blowing snow issues. The rest of the state will be windy with highs about 20 degrees warmer than Saturday. Monday is March 1st and the beginning of Meteorological Spring. For Meteorologists, the spring months consist of March, April and May. The summer months are June, July and August. Autumn is September, October and November. Winter is December, January and February. While this does not align with the Earth's tilt, they are more representative of the weather in that month. The first week of March will certainly feel closer to spring than winter. Skies will be mostly sunny with highs gradually warming from the 30s and 40s to the 50s and 60s by late week.
Have a great weekend.
