BOZEMAN – Another Pacific cold front to pass through Montana Wednesday night into Thursday morning. Be prepared for widespread light snow to impact travel at all levels.

The next in a series of Pacific storms will pass through Montana Wednesday evening. This storm has a colder core and that means a better chance for widespread snow by Thursday morning.

This storm will pass through quickly so light snow accumulations are likely for valleys and mountains.

Behind this front a cooler pattern will dig into the region but a mostly dry pattern will also sit over Montana this weekend.

Early snow accumulations forecast modeling shows most lower valleys could see 1”-4” of snow and mountains and passes 3”-6” with higher amounts over higher mountain peaks. This front could also produce locally windy conditions and combined with areas of snow will create areas of blowing snow.

Plan on wintry travel impacts by Thursday morning over SW Montana.
