Warmer air coming; frozen mix possible for some on Thursday

Posted: 11/08/2017 17:35:00 -07:00 Updated:

A cold front swept down from Canada on Wednesday, dropping temperatures back into the 10s.

For Thursday, a warm front will move in from the west and push temperatures right back up again.

The problem with that warmer air arriving is the potential for a wintry mix in some areas.

At this time, the STORMTracker Weather Team says the area most likely to experience frozen precipitation is northwest Montana.

The situation gets more complicated as you go farther east.

Meteorologist Mike Rawlins says there is a slight chance of seeing some rain and snow east of the Rocky Mountains, but downsloping west winds will dry out the atmosphere.

Temperatures are expected to remain below average for Thursday, with highs only reaching the 20s and 30s.

The Next Weathermaker, an area of low pressure moving in from the west, will bring warmer air to the state for Friday.

Highs will jump into the 40s for most areas, which is closer to the average for mid-November.
