Calm before the storm - KRTV News in Great Falls, Montana

Calm before the storm

Posted: Mar 13, 2018 4:04 PM Updated:

It's hard to think of more snow after a day like today.

A few areas across the Front Range even managed to reach the 50s on Tuesday with much of the state well into the mid 40s. 

Unfortunately, the warm and mild weather will be short-lived as we are tracking another winter storm that is just about to make landfall off the Pacific Coast. 

Ahead of this incoming system, temperatures are expected to remain very cold along the Hi-Line which will lead to yet another night and morning of freezing fog and limited visibility. 

The heart of the winter storm that we are keeping our eye on won't make landfall until early Thursday morning, however, we will begin to see the impacts as early as Wednesday. 

This area of low pressure is expected to track just south of the state and will continue to wrap moisture over Montana through Friday.

There is a good chance of freezing rain as this system approaches us, as well. 

Air temperatures will play a big roll in how much snow this system will bring. 

For most areas, we will see a rain and snow mixture which will limit accumulations. 

This storm is currently carrying significant amounts of moisture off the coast which could lead to very slushy conditions later this week.
