Snow forecast

The STORMTracker Weather Team says to expect a general 5-8" snowfall across the plains of north-central Montana.

A band of heavier snow is expected to stretch from near Glacier National Park southeast toward the Lewistown area.

Within this band, there is the potential for some locations to receive up to a foot of snow.

Montana's mountains will certainly benefit from this storm, too.

1-2 feet of snow is expected to fall in the higher elevations, which will bolster an already-healthy snowpack.

Helena will generally miss out on this next storm with only an inch or two of snow expected in the valley.

Dangerously cold temperatures

If you're venturing outdoors, be prepared for winter's worst.

Temperatures will bottom out near -10° in many places by early Thursday with wind chills dipping to near -25° at times.

The very cold air will stick around through Friday before temperatures jump to near freezing for Saturday.
