Friday Afternoon STORMTracker Forecast

Beautiful weather day for all your Halloween activities this afternoon and evening. Temperatures are well above average and approaching record high levels. Did we see any record highs today? Find out at 5:30pm and 10pm on KXLF. Significant weather pattern change to occur Saturday night into Sunday across Montana. A broad trough, surface cold front, rain with isolated thunderstorms Saturday afternoon, rain changing to snow by Sunday morning and heavy mountain snow and travel difficulties over mountain passes will make up your weekend weather forecast. Here is a very detailed Tru Vu forecast model showing you the timing, intensity and location of the rain and snow this weekend. National Weather Service has continued a Winter Storm Watch for all of SW Montana extending up the rocky mountain front and into central Montana Saturday evening through Sunday evening. Above 4,500' look for 5"-10" of snow, strong winds at times, reduced visibilities and much colder temperatures. There will be travel difficulties over the mountain passes Saturday night through Monday morning. Advisories or Warnings will be issued soon in place of the Watch, so check back frequently for updates. Valley snow is possible with this storm but accumulations will vary greatly depending on when the rain changes to snow. Some valleys like Butte could see several inches of snow, whereas, Bozeman should see less amounts of snow or a rain/snow mix. Initially the snow should melt as it hits the ground so forecast amounts may sound high for some valleys but keep in mind some of the new snow will melt off initially but with cooler temperatures moving around sunrise Sunday accumulations will be likely. Watch my on demand video forecast for a detailed look at the big weather pattern change this weekend. Tonight at 5:30pm and 10pm I'll be updating the forecast for this weekend Important Links: STORMTracker Travel Watch STORMTracker Interactive Radar Cameras STORMTracker Weather Facebook
