Waking up many locations west of the Continental Divide and in southwest and central Montana will be waking up to slick roads. The front that passed through the state yesterday left a wintery mix of rain and snow. Road surfaces in many locations were above freezing, so most of the snow melted on contact. It's always best to remember mountain passes are the first to freeze and the last to thaw, so if traveling over mountain passes such as; Marias, Kings Hill, Bozeman, Raynolds, and MacDonald Pass, prepare for winter driving conditions. Isolated scattered showers are possible during the afternoon. Today's daytime highs will remain above average but will still be much cooler than yesterday's high temperatures.
Tomorrow will be mostly cloudy, and daytime highs will remain in the 20s and 30s. Widespread accumulating snow will start during the afternoon/evening and will likely continue into Saturday.
Friday, a potent cold front will bring frigid temperatures, overcast skies, and snow.
Superbowl weekend will likely be enjoyed inside, as daytime highs fall into the single digits and teens.
Happy Black History Month.
