A strong blizzard blasted Montana over the weekend. Some areas saw nearly 20" of snow. Strong wind reduced visibility and created significant drifting of snow. More wind will continue to blow over the next several days into the weekend, so some additional drifting is possible. Another minor storm system will impact Montana through Tuesday into Wednesday. Some light snow will fall mainly in the mountains on Tuesday. Highs will be in the 20s and 30s. A cold front will drop south into the state on Wednesday morning with a reinforcing shot of snow and cold. Highs will be in the 20s. Thursday will be a pleasant November day with mostly sunny skies and highs in the 30s. Friday, the next storm will spread clouds across the state with snow increasing in the western mountains, mainly west of the Continental Divide. This next storm favors areas west of the Divide with snow, but east of the Divide will get hit by very strong wind Friday night through the weekend. Travel over the mountain passes will have snow accumulation through Saturday. A few snow showers will move over the lower elevations east of the Divide with little to no accumulation. Sunday will be a partly cloudy day with a lot of wind again. November can, and will be, a windy time of year. Weekend temperatures will moderate some with highs closer to normal in the 30s and 40s.
Have a great day!
