We are tracking clear conditions for the rest of tonight.

The wind will continue to diminish overnight before returning once again tomorrow.

Gusts could reach up to 30 MPH tomorrow evening.

We are also tracking another very isolated chance of rain in the forecast for Central Montana tomorrow afternoon and evening, but showers and snow showers will mostly remain to the southwest starting around Helena.

By Thursday, showers move to Central Montana and become even more widespread.

We continue tracking widespread snow shower and shower chances through the rest of the week and into the weekend.

We are expected over a foot of snow accumulation in upper elevations through the rest of the week, and impacts across local passes will be felt starting Wednesday evening into Thursday morning.

Impacts in these high elevation passes (5000 to 6000 feet) will include accumulating snow and slush, reduced visibility, and slippery roadways.

Snow will continue falling across the Rocky Mountain Front through the weekend, and we can expect this to start the snowpack for the winter.
