We are tracking more wind in the forecast this morning.

Gusts up to 35 MPH are possible through Central Montana.

There are slight chances for snow in lower elevations today, but snow mostly stays isolated to upper elevations.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect through this evening for areas above 4500 feet in Cascade, Meagher, and Judith Basin Counties due to breezy conditions and additional snow accumulation.
