Finishing the work week with snow

Posted: Updated:

Drivers beware: Friday the 13th will be slippery cold, snowy one in parts of Montana.

STORMTracker meteorologist Mike Rawlins says snow will develop in the mountains of western Montana overnight, spreading east to the Rocky Mountain Front by early Friday morning.

Snow is expected off and on through Friday night, with most areas receiving less than an inch of accumulation.

However, the Rocky Mountain Front is expected to receive heavier snow, resulting in some travel trouble for drivers along Highway 2.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the Northern Rocky Mountain Front through Friday night, where 3-5" of snow is expected to fall. At higher elevations, 5-8" of snow is expected, with up to a foot of snow falling on mountain peaks.

Visibility may be limited at times, so drivers should be prepared for winter driving conditions, especially if driving near Glacier National Park.

Elsewhere, rain and snow showers are expected through much of Friday, changing to all snow showers for Friday night.

Temperatures are expected to remain chilly through Saturday with highs in the 50s and morning lows in the 20s/30s.
