Locally heavy snow fell on Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Heavy snow bands dropped as much as a foot of snow around Missoula, with a few inches falling around the Helena area. There will be a brief break in the activity before a new storm moves in. Thursday will be fairly quiet and mostly sunny for most of the state. Highs will remain chilly, in the 20s and 30s. A moderate wind will blow over the plains. The next storm will spread clouds and wind across most of the state on Friday. Snow will fly mainly west of the Continental Divide, with some snow showers crossing the Divide late in the evening. Low pressure will work across Montana on Saturday with snow in the mountains, a little snow across the Hi-Line, but most of the state will experience strong wind. Highs will be in the 30s and 40s. Travelers heading over the Continental Divide should anticipate difficult travel at times. Sunday will be a partly cloudy day with highs in the 30s to around 40. Monday will be mostly cloudy with a little light rain and snow. Tuesday and Wednesday will be much warmer and dry with highs in the 50s and 60s.
Have a great day.
