Winter weather continues to blanket Montana, as a low pressure system sprinkles snow throughout the state. Snow, however, is expected to slow down into the night and lighten by Monday morning. Cold temperatures will continue into Wednesday.

Attached below is a Special Weather Advisory issued by the National Weather Service at 3:57 p.m. on Sunday, February 3:

“At 4 PM, light snow is moving northeastward through Central MT,
affecting areas around Helena, Great Falls, Fort Benton, Stanford,
Havre and Lewistown. Visibility is generally around one mile, but
a few heavier snow showers will produce visibility down to a half
mile. New snow accumulations over the next few hours will range
from around a quarter of an inch to a half inch.

Wind chill values continue to fall as well, with many areas over
North Central MT now having wind chill values colder than 25
below. Wind chills will continue to lower this evening, going
colder than 40 below in many areas by Midnight.”
