Blizzard-like conditions likely again along Rocky Mountain Front - KXLH.com | Helena, Montana

Blizzard-like conditions likely again along Rocky Mountain Front tomorrow

Posted: Feb 26, 2018 10:33 AM Updated:

Snow will continue this morning along the Continental Divide and in southwestern Montana and will taper off this afternoon. The STORMTracker weather teams says we will remain mostly dry in central Montana, with mix of sun and clouds throughout the day, but a stray snow shower or flurry is possible. 

Temperatures will be getting into the 20s and 30s across the state, which is a much better start to the work week compared to last week's below-zero frigid temperatures. Lows overnight are expected to drop back into the teens and single digits.

Although winds diminished significantly overnight last night, and will continue to be calm today, they will start to ramp up once again overnight. The main concern once again will be along the Rocky Mountain Front, where we can see gusts up to 50 mph at times. You know the deal, with windy conditions, we can expect more blowing and drifting snow. 

The blowing and drifting snow will cause visibilities to be significantly reduced at times, making for hazardous travel. 

A Winter Storm Watch will go into effect this evening for the Northern and Southern Rocky Mountain Front as well as Eastern Glacier County and ending on Wednesday. Blizzard conditions are likely during this Winter Storm Watch and could possibly be upgraded to a Blizzard Warning once again.

Over the weekend, we experience blizzard conditions and many viewers they had to crawl through the snow to get out of their houses. Snow drifted as high as some Montanan's roofs. 

The remainder of the week will see continued below average temperatures and breezy conditions for much of the region, with some snow expected over the mountains but remaining mostly dry at lower elevations. 

The next chance of widespread snow will be Friday into Friday night but as of now snow amounts will be low.

The STORMTracker weather team will keep you updated on the latest conditions throughout these blizzard conditions tonight into Wednesday. Many roads still remain closed from this past weekend.
