BOZEMAN – A brief quiet weather period Tuesday afternoon for SW Montana. Melting snow is producing wet roads, especially over mountain passes, and these wet areas will freeze up after sunset tonight so watch for areas of ice and black ice if traveling.
A weak and disorganized Pacific storm will drop down into Montana from British Columbia, Canada tonight into Wednesday.
This storm system will produce scattered rain or snow for lower valleys and light accumulating snow for mountains and passes beginning Wednesday morning and continuing through early Thursday morning.
This storm could have a minor impact on traveling with wet roads turning icy during the colder night time and early morning hours.
Temperatures will be mild and near to slightly above normal beginning Wednesday with upper 30s to lower 40s despite a storm system passing through the state. By the end of the week and the weekend temperatures will remain above normal.
