Havre got 2 inches of snow last night, adding to the four that has fallen since Sunday, as the National Weather Service’s winter storm advisories and warnings are set to expire at midday today.
National Weather Service issued a Winter Weather Advisory that lasted until 11 a.m. today in Hill, Blaine and northeastern Chouteau counties, and ended overnight in Liberty County.
A more severe Winter Storm Warning for the majority of Chouteau County was also issued, a warning was later extended to cover the southern half of Blaine County and all of Chouteau County along with the southwest corner of Hill County starting just south of Havre.
National Weather Service Meteorologist Patrick Pierce said it looks like Loma has gotten 3.2 inches of snow in the last day, but more snow is likely incoming for Chouteau County.
As for today, less than an inch of new accumulation is expected in Havre even as precipitation remains likely and temperatures stay below freezing.
The temperature is expected to drop into the teens tonight, accompanied by patchy fog.
Friday, the high will remain just below freezing with a chance of snow in the morning but the overnight low will reach 5 degrees.
