Much of Southern and Western Montana will be in for more winter weather Monday night into early Tuesday morning.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect from 5PM Monday until 8AM Tuesday.

Accumulating snow is expected.

For most of us, around an inch of snow is likely, but higher amounts of closer to 3 inches are expected at higher elevations.

Temperatures will be falling into the teens and 20s Monday night, so snow may begin to stick to road surfaces.

A few slippery spots are possible Tuesday morning, use caution while driving.

Highs will be in upper 20s to lower 30s Tuesday with mostly cloudy skies and light winds.
