Another storm system diving out of Canada will roll over Montana from NW to SE Wednesday into Thursday. Ahead of this storm surface winds have increasing along the Rocky Mountain Front and Upper Yellowstone region with gusts 30 to 60+ mph. This is helping warm temperatures up in these wind prone regions but it's also producing blowing snow and lower visibility.
The timing of this next Canadian storm will begin to increase cloud cover by Wednesday morning over SW Montana and by late afternoon scattered snow showers will begin at first over area mountain ranges and by early evening look for a little snow to reach the valley floor.
Snow accumulations should be light and along and North of I-90 valleys could see 1" - 3" and mountain passes 2" - 4". This is a weaker storm system but even the weak storms can produce periods of snow and slow-go travel with snow covered and icy roads and localized blowing snow Wednesday night into Thursday morning.
The above on demand STORMTracker video forecast with Chief Meteorologist Mike Heard will walk you through the timing of this next weather maker and the impacts it could have on our region.
