A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY has been issued for northeast Montana through Thursday morning.
A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY has been issued for the Glacier area into Thursday morning.

Thanksgiving is a little more than a week away, and right now the weather looks quiet on the holiday. Some of the more active weather we see until then will be on Thursday with scattered snow showers in the mountains and a lot of wind over the lower elevations. Northeast Montana is under a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for the morning hours because of a little light freezing rain and snow that could create very icy conditions. Highs will be in the 30s and 40s. Friday will be a very nice November day with sunshine and highs in the 30s and 40s. The plains will again see windy conditions. This weekend will be unusually nice for November with mostly sunny skies and near normal temperatures in the 30s and 40s. November is one of the cloudiest months of the year, so abundant sunshine through a weekend does not typically happen. A weak disturbance will move through on Monday with a few snow showers and mostly cloudy skies. Tuesday will be mostly cloudy with strong wind over the plains. Highs will warm into the 40s and 50s. Early on Wednesday a cold front will move through with the chance of a few snow showers. Besides that, most of the state will be dry and windy. Travel conditions will not be bad on Wednesday afternoon, but the wind could be a bit annoying. Thanksgiving weather will be quiet and cool, some wind early on, and possibly a few snow showers over the northeast corner of the state.
Have a great day.
