More snow and colder air on the way

Posted: Dec 20, 2017 9:11 PM Updated:

Montana just wrapped up a winter storm that dumped more than three feet of snow in some areas, and now we're already tracking the next storm that will bring even more snow.

The highest snow total, as of late Wednesday, was reported along Highway 2 just south of Glacier National Park. 40" of snow was recorded at Essex, Montana during the three-day winter storm.

Initial reports from the National Weather Service indicate many other locations received 2-3' of snow.

Great Falls officially recorded 8.2" of snow, Helena reported 3-7", and Havre got 6-8".

Thursday is expected to be a bright, but cold day across the Treasure State.

Temperatures are expected to warm into the 10s and 20s during the afternoon under a mostly sunny sky.

Clouds will move in throughout the day ahead of the next storm expected to arrive Thursday night.

STORMTracker meteorologist Mike Rawlins says a cold front will move south out of Canada late Thursday night, producing more snow throughout Montana.

Light-moderate snow is expected through late Friday, with an additional 1-3" falling across north-central Montana.

Along the Northern Rockies, snow amounts are expected to be slightly higher with totals in the 3-5" range.

Much colder air will then move in for the weekend.

Temperatures are expected to drop below zero just before Christmas and daytime highs will only reach into the single digits and teens above zero.
