A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY remains in effect for Monida and Raynolds Pass of southwest Montana.
Snow certainly has been scarce so far this year, but there are some areas where snow is falling in Montana. Mainly close to the Idaho border, snow will fall and make travel difficult. The rest of the state will be dry for the time being. After another chilly day, slowly the airmass will be warming over the next few days. A southerly flow will push temperatures back into the 20s, 30s, and even a few 40s toward the weekend. Most of the state will be dry until Friday when a weak area of low pressure will spread some light snow across central and southern areas. At best up to 1" will accumulate in the lower elevations. Some snow showers will continue into Saturday, but the final day of January on Sunday will be partly cloudy and mild. February will see an increase in activity with a cold front likely to impact the area on Tuesday and Wednesday with some snow and colder temperatures. The first half of the month (at least) will have more storminess with chances at snow. So after a very quiet stretch, a more normal period of storm activity is likely.
Have a great day!
