Finally a day where there is no watches/warnings in effect! A high pressure ridge will keep us mostly dry today.
Wind gusts between 20-30 mph can still cause some blowing/drifting snow along the Rocky Mountain Front today, before diminishing this evening ending the threat. Compared to what was seen yesterday, conditions will not be too bad, hopefully giving crews the time to re-open some roads and highways in northern Montana.
Temperatures this afternoon will be near freezing in many areas and are expected to rise tomorrow to near normal, just in time for the start of meteorological spring, before a cold front moves through on Friday.
Tonight's overnight lows will be in the teens in central Montana and getting down to the single digits in our north and northeastern counties.
This cold front will bring in cooler air back into the 20s, along with snow possibilities for over the weekend. There is a favorable chance of snow Thursday-Friday along the Rocky Mountain Front and the surrounding plains. Models have been pretty inconsistent with how much snow we expect to see here in Central Montana, as much of the snow over the weekend looks to be north of the border. It is likely we will receive snow over the weekend, although how much will continue to be monitored closely as we get closer to the weekend.
Temperatures to remain in the 20s for the start of the work week next week.
