While the strongest winds are expected to diminish throughout the morning hours, ahead of the cold front gusty winds leading to patchy blowing snow will continue. Also with the Canadian cold front moving south into Montana today, even more snow is on its way. Old man winter does not want to give us a break.
Also, much colder air will follow the cold front making overnight lows in the single digits and below zero once again. Cooler air will stick around for tomorrow, many areas seeing Thursday's highs in the teens.
Snow will start to develop with the passage of the cold front this afternoon and into the evening and overnight into Thursday morning. This doesn't look to be a huge snow accumulation event, but slippery roads and reduced visibilities will still be a concern with this storm. Winter Weather Advisories have been put into effect through Thursday for majority of Northern and North Central Montana. Areas will see accumulations between 1 to 3 inches and 3 to 5 inches, with higher accumulations in the mountains.
We are not done there yet, with more snow possible Friday-Monday morning.
