Gusty winds will be the general rule today and Friday as another strong cold front moves our way with plenty of cold air and some moisture. The jury is still out on accumulations but snow is in the forecast for Friday and part of Saturday.
The latest forecast models show the upcoming storm system arriving a bit later and snow totals not as impressive as earlier in the week. The Cut Bank area should see snow begin Friday and end overnight with 1″-3″. The mountains could see anywhere from 3″ to 6″ of snowfall over the same period.
From Great Falls to Have and Lewistown the snow begins toward the Friday evening hours and should end by Saturday morning. Lower elevations could see an inch of snow with 1″-3″ in the mountains. The Kings Hill area could see a few inches as well. Bridge decks could become icy Friday night.
The cooler air behind the cold front will still stick around through the weekend. Don’t forget to set your clocks back an hour Saturday night as Daylight Saving Time comes to an end at 2 am Sunday morning!
