A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY has been issued for portions of central, north-central, and west-central Montana until 11 am

The Winter Storm that bought snow and caused widespread power outages will move out of the state. Light flurries will fly through the early morning but will taper off by noon. Unfortunately, blowing snow will reduce visibility and impact travel in central, north-central, and portions of eastern Montana. High pressure will build into the region, allowing a little more sunshine in Northwest Montana. But sadly, the entire state high temperatures will stay below freezing. Tonight lows could drop down to the single digits and teens under clear skies.

Tomorrow the temperatures will be slightly warmer, but a fast-moving low-pressure, also known as the Saskatchewan Screamer, will drop down from Canada Tuesday night into Wednesday and cool down the temperatures. Light snow, strong winds, and colder temperatures are typically associated with Saskatchewan Screamers.

Wednesday, most of the region's high temperatures will drop below freezing following the passage of Tuesday's front. Light showers will fall in the mountains and may spill into central Montana. Central Montana could get up to 1".

Thursday, warmer air will attempt to move in as the wind shift back to a southwesterly flow. The highs will stay in the mid to upper 30s, and most of the region will have mostly sunny skies.

Friday, the temperatures will climb to the 40s, but the wind is expected to pick up.

Have a great day.
