A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY has been issued for the Northern Rocky Mountain Front from tonight into tomorrow afternoon.
A LAKE WIND ADVISORY has been issued for Fort Peck Lake until tonight for west winds that will be gusting up to 30 mph.
Today the state will have mostly sunny skies, close to average temperatures, and strong winds in portions of the state. By now, most of the snow on the ground should be melted away, but any remnants left behind today's warmth will melt that away. The development of a chinook wind will increase the temperatures into the '50s, and areas in eastern Montana temperatures will even reach '60. The wind will blow the strongest off the northern rocky mountain front, but by tonight the wind will die down. A weak cold front will pass tomorrow, and drop the temperatures back to the '40s and low '50s. The cold front will also bring a mix of rain/snow showers to the lower elevations, and the mountains. The mountains and the Northern Rocky Mountain front could see 1-3" Saturday system will be short-lived, and by Sunday, we will close the week out with spring-like temperatures and partly cloudy skies. Next week, the temperatures will be in the '60s, and some areas will reach the lower '70s.
Enjoy your day,
