BOZEMAN – Spring-like weather lately has been nice but the last 5 to 10 days of the winter season will be much colder with a good chance for snow.

An arctic front will drop down into Montana beginning Friday evening and at the same time a deep trough of Low pressure will dig down the Pacific NW coast. This will set up a good over-running weather pattern with cold from the north and moisture lifting from the SW this weekend.

Snow, wind, and well below normal temperatures will impact Montana and much of the western half of the country this weekend into most of next week.

The above weather briefing will give you an early look at the timing of the pattern change. Keep in mind it’s still way too early to get specific on snow totals and forecast temperatures. Those details will be updated as we get closer to the pattern change.

For now plan on possible below zero lows, gusty winds, and accumulating snow this weekend into early next week.
