A WINTER STORM WARNING is in effect for the Rocky Mountain Front and portions of the Hi-Line from near Harlem to north of Glasgow until 6 pm.
A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect for most of Montana until 10 am.
A WINTER STORM WATCH has been issued for parts of central and western Montana for Tomorrow into Saturday evening.

Morning snow will diminish by noon, and the Sun will even peek out at times. Unfortunately, frigid temperatures will stick around, and another round of snow will begin to move in tomorrow. The highs will fall into the 20s and 30s for most areas, but locations along the Hi-Line, the highs will only reach the teens.

Tomorrow, the temperatures will drop again; the entire state highs will stay below average. The wind will pick up at times, and blowing and drifting snow will reduce visibility and can cause hazardous driving conditions. Most areas around the state will have overcast skies and highs, only reaching the teens and 20s. Another round of widespread snow will move in late afternoon/early evening and will continue into tomorrow. The low temperatures will fall below zero and remain in the single digits.

Saturday, widespread snow will continue throughout the day. But by late afternoon/early evening, the snow will begin to track eastward toward the Dakotas. Record cold highs and lows are possible. The highs will reach the teens and 20s, and again the lows will fall below zero.

Sunday, a ridge of high pressure will bring the Sun, but since there still will be snow on the ground, the sun's energy will be used to melt the snow instead of heating the ground. The highs will only reach the teens, and it's not until mid-week next week that the temperatures return to the 40s.

Have a great day.
