Another Storm To Bring Snow To SW Montana

Posted: Updated:

A new pacific storm is digging into the Pacific NW Thursday afternoon and will roll into Western Montana tonight and SW Montana Friday.

There is a good chance for snow accumulations especially over most mountain passes locally but favored upslope areas that slow this storm down could see 3" - 6" of snow along the MT/ID state line like Lookout Pass on I-90.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:

  • Increasing snow is possible by Friday morning in SW Montana
  • Snow accumulations should be on the light side but mountain passes could become icy
  • Temperatures will remain below normal and fall well below freezing Friday morning & Saturday
  • There will be minor travel impacts locally

The National Weather Service has issued a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY from 9 pm Thursday to Noon on Friday above 3,000'. Snow accumulations of 1" to 3" are likely but up to 6" or more at and above pass levels. 

Snow accumulation forecast models show minor snow accumulations for most valleys but wet road could be icy in the early morning hours Friday and Saturday. High elevations like Big Sky, West Yellowstone, Wisdom and Cooke City have the best chance for picking up several inches of snow Thursday night through Saturday morning.
