A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY will remain in effect until noon for Fergus County.
A HIGH WIND WARNING has been issued for portions of north and south-central Montana Wednesday at 6 pm.
A WIND ADVISORY has been issued for the Livingston and Beartooth Foothills areas until Wednesday and 6 pm.

Yesterday's fresh snow and today's strong winds will lead to areas of blowing and drifting snow in portions of central and north-central Montana, which could reduce visibility. A ridge of high pressure will build into the region from the west, keeping conditions mostly dry. Pesky winds will begin to increase. The National Weather Service has upgraded yesterday's watch into a warning for portions of north-central and central Montana. Strong winds will help feed daytime highs into the 30s and 40s.

Tomorrow strong winds will stick around through the first part of the day, and daytime highs will remain above-average before a colder air mass moves in.

Thursday will be much colder; high temperatures will cool to the 20s and 30s. The next chance of snow will move in Thursday night into Friday morning for central and southwest Montana mountains. Light snow may spill into the lower elevations of central and southwest Montana but will not accumulate much.

Have a great day.
