A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY has been issued for portions of central and southwest Montana from this AFTERNOON until Friday MORNING.
Winter has finally arrived in the Treasure State. Clouds will begin to increase throughout the day, and the high temperatures will remain in the 30s and lower 40s. Today the snowfall will mainly fall in the mountains, and tonight is when the next disturbance will enter the state and carry into Thursday, bring along a mix of rain/snow. Tomorrow a cloudy pattern continues, and the high temperatures will be above freezing. Friday morning, the snow will taper off. Friday afternoon into Saturday morning, there will be a small break in activity as more snow and wind will sweep across the state on Saturday. The storm will accumulate a couple of inches in the lower elevations, but the strong wind has the likelihood of blowing that snow around, reducing visibility, making travel difficult. Sunday will have some sunshine, but more snow will move in Sunday night into Monday. Next week forecast models are suggesting more snow and colder temperatures.
Enjoy your day,
