It was a very wintry weekend in Montana. As of Sunday evening, many locations on the Rocky Mountain Front were reporting extremely high snowfall totals- most notable was Browning at 48." Overnight snowfall could make these totals even higher. There are multiple road closures in Pondera county, and officials have asked that roads be kept clear for emergency travel only.

While the snow has calmed down this morning, we aren't completely finished with the winter weather. Snow flurries will continue today and tomorrow, but total accumulation will be significantly lower than weekend snow totals. Eastern Montana is more likely to see heavier snow than north-central Montana, but there is a chance that Helena and Great Falls will get a few flurries for the beginning of the week.

A weak high-pressure ridge will move in on Wednesday, bringing us a few days of relief from the extreme cold and gloomy conditions. Temperatures will climb into the 40s and we'll get a little more sunshine, but that won't last for long. Another strong low-pressure system will roll in late this week, bringing chances for more active weather this weekend.
