A WINTER WARNING has been issued for the Beartooth Mountains and Crazy Mountains.
A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY has been a large portion of the state.

Yesterday we got a little clearing, but unfortunately, more snow is on the way. Traveling may be difficult through the morning hours; please take it slow; visibility is extremely poor. With that being said, a Dense Fog Advisory has been issued for eastern Pondera, eastern Teton, and Cascade counties until 9 am. Another strong cold front is on track to drop into the state during the afternoon, offering more snow and colder temperatures. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for accumulating snow and gusty northwest wind. The plains could get between 2-6", Valleys 1-3," and the mountains could pick up anywhere between 5-10." Along with the Winter Weather Advisory, a Winter Storm Warning has been issued for Beartooth and Crazy Mountains. The high temperature will stay in the 30s and 40s, and the lows tonight will drop to the single digits and teens.

Frigid temperatures will follow us into tomorrow. Scattered flakes will follow as well but will not stick around; by the afternoon, scattered flakes will move out, and the sun will peek out at times. The highs will fall into the teens and 20s. Unfortunately, colder temperatures will stick around for the next few days. Wet roads and cold temperatures could lead to a flash freeze on road surfaces, so it's always good to remember to give yourself enough time to leave.

Friday, the temperatures will drop again, and the entire state will get another round of snow late afternoon/early evening. The low temperatures will stay in the single digits for most areas.

This weekend record cold is possible.

Have a great day.
