An overnight cold front has left arctic air planted over the state.

A few light flurries have also blanketed Central Montana, making for a somewhat slippery morning commute.

The wind will continue to taper off as the day plays out; however area of blowing and drifting snow are still likely.

Temperatures will remain in the high 20s and low 30s for most on Wednesday.

Warmer temperatures will return on Thursday but so will the wind.

Gusts of 20 to 30 mph are likely on Thursday as weak high pressure returns.

This high pressure system will flatten out on Friday, opening the door for Pacific moisture.

Flurries are likely Friday night and again on Saturday.

Accumulations are expected around 1 to 3 inches for the lower elevations.
