BOZEMAN – Slow moving pacific storm continued to produce areas of snow and wind across Montana today. Most of the snow is lifting over SW Montana with mountain passes picking up a little snow so far from this storm.

A cold front will pass through Wednesday into Thursday and behind this front a colder Northerly flow will develop producing much colder temperatures by the end of the week. This pattern will continue to push moisture through the region with scattered off-and-on snow for SW Montana Wednesday through next week.

We are not expecting heavy snow accumulations locally, rather minor accumulations or just enough to produce some icy roads with colder temperatures this weekend into next week.


The National Weather Service did issue a Winter Weather Advisory for Yellowstone National Park Wednesday morning through Thursday afternoon.

Snow accumulations of 4” – 12” is possible along with gusty winds. Both will produce minor travel hazards for park visitors over the next couple of days.
