BOZEMAN – Harsh winter weather is locked into place for another 48 hours. Warm moist air from the SW continues to over-run cold Arctic air at the surface across Montana producing snow and wind. As long as the moisture keeps move over the region the snow will continue at least into Thursday and begin to diminish by Friday.
There are numerous winter weather highlights up across the state from Winter Storm Warnings to Winter Weather Advisories. Flood Warnings are near Ennis and Logan as ice jam flooding is forcing water to flow over US 287 and into low lying areas near Logan.
Avalanche Warnings have been extended into Thursday morning locally and with more snow, likely tonight into Thursday backcountry conditions will remain dangerous with all slopes rated “high” for sliding.
Forecast models are beginning to show a drier weather pattern by the weekend into early next week but the cold Arctic air will linger over Montana well into next week.
