A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY has been issued for the Northern Rocky Mountain Front until 2 pm.

High pressure will continue to settle in across the region allowing for mostly sunny skies. Strong winds will help feed the highs into the 40s and 50s. Travel could be difficult for high-profile vehicles or for those traveling across mountain passes; blowing snow could reduce visibility, so plan accordingly.

Unfortunately, waking up on Christmas day will be sunny. It's not until the afternoon that clouds will start to increase as our next weather maker moves in off the Pacific. Tomorrow will have less wind and another day of above-average temperatures. Daytime highs will range between the 30s and 40s.

Saturday, that state will have overcast skies, snow will fall in the mountains west of the Divide, and light snow will fall in portions of north-central Montana. The lower elevations could get around an inch or less and the mountains between 1-3."

Sunday will be cloudy, and a few lingering flurries will fall during the morning hours.

Happy Holidays.
