A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY has been issued for southwest and south-central Montana until tomorrow morning.
Today will be a much colder day. The high temperatures will be 10-15 degrees cooler; most of the state highs will stay in the 20s and 30s. A period of snow is expected to develop across southwest Montana and will continue into tomorrow morning. The lower elevations could get up to 3' and the mountains between 2-5'. The heaviest snow will fall over the mountains near the foothills. The snow will generally be on the light side, but models suggest a band of moderate snow may develop in central Montana. Prepare for slick roads and poor visibility. Any wet surface will refreeze, creating for a messy evening and morning commute. Remember to drive slow and increase your following distance from others.
Tomorrow morning roads will be slick, and the wake-up temperatures will trend below freezing. Daytime highs will cool to the 20s and low 30s.
This weekend is shaping out to be cool and dry. Highs will stay in the 20s and 30s, and most of the state will have mostly to partly cloudy skies.
Have a great day.
