BOZEMAN – Westerly flow aloft will keep temperatures hovering near to slightly above normal this week. A series of Pacific storms will pass through the region producing moderate snow accumulations for most mountains and passes and lower valleys could see several inches.

The first in a series of storms arrives Monday night into Tuesday morning. A cold front will pass through tonight and produce areas of snow and wind. This will have an impact on your Tuesday morning commute especially if you are traveling over any local mountain pass.

The second system should arrive late Wednesday into Thursday. Another Pacific cold front will once again produce snow and wind and possible travel impacts.

The National Weather Service has issued a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for SW Montana from 5 pm Monday to 9 am Tuesday.

Lower valleys could see 1”-3” of snow and mountain passes 3”-6” in general. The snow event should be short-lived as a cold front passes through the region.
