A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY is in effect for the Glacier region as well as most of southwest Montana into Tuesday morning.
A HIGH WIND WATCH has been issued for the Rocky Mountain Front for Tuesday into Wednesday.
A new storm moving through Monday night into Tuesday will bring a little snow and a bit more wind. Snow will accumulate along the Continental Divide and in the higher terrain of western Montana. A burst of snow and rain will come down off of the Divide with little to no accumulation. The mountains could see as much as 5" by early Tuesday morning. This low pressure will quickly move away through the morning hours, with increasing wind and sunshine for the afternoon. Wind gusts will be strong but no where near the force reached over the weekend. Wednesday will be a quiet January day with partly cloudy skies and just some wind over north-central Montana. Thursday will be a little different. This will be the best chance for snow in the lower elevations that we have had in a while. The snow will be light, but it could accumulate 1-2" in the lower elevations east of the Continental Divide. High pressure will move in for a quiet second weekend of January. Toward the middle and end of the month, a more active storm track will develop with a better chance of snow and more typical January temperatures.
Have a great day!
