We're starting off the new year with some active weather.
We're tracking both rain and snow this New Year's Day.
At the lower elevations, mostly rain is falling, but some snow has mixed in Northeast Montana.
In the mountains snow has been falling since Tuesday.
That's left many of our mountain passes slippery.
Mountain snow is expected to continue to fall into the evening, with some lighter snow showers persisting into Thursday.
Lower elevations will dry up overnight, but another round of moisture, this time coming mainly as light snow, is expected on Thursday.
The snow will be the result of a cold front sweeping through the area.
Little accumulation is expected, but the front will cap our temperatures in the upper 30s to lower 40s, and we'll likely see temperatures start to fall by the afternoon.
Winds remain on the breezy side Thursday, with gusts up to 30 miles per hour.
