National Weather Service expects more winter weather to hit north-central Montana by the weekend, with the remnants of the last snowfall still on the ground.
Weather Service predicts a Canadian cold front to come through the area by Saturday, bringing 2 to 4 inches of snow on the plains and 5 to 10 inches in the mountains. Temperatures in north-central Montana are expected to drop into the teens by Saturday, with wind chills at zero to minus 10 degrees.
Weather Service’s advisory warns people to expect poor driving conditions in this region, with icy roads and low visibility due to blowing and drifting snow likely.
The weekend also is expected to bring wintry weather to portions of southwestern Montana as an upper-level disturbance moves through that region.
Weather Service increased the amount of snow predicted to fall in north-central Montana from its advisory Tuesday, with high confidence in the prediction of snowfall and colder temperatures in Wednesday’s advisory and moderate confidence in the amount of snowfall.
Weather Service predicts a chance of snow through Sunday, with the cooler temperatures continuing and a high for Sunday forecast at 16 degrees, a low of zero degrees and the high Monday predicted to hit 26 degrees and hitting the 30s Tuesday and Wednesday.
