Our weather forecast just got a lot more interesting…our Winter Storm Watch has been upgraded to a Winter Storm Warning!
… Winter Storm Warning in effect from midnight tonight to 6 PM MDT Sunday…
The National Weather Service in Great Falls has issued a Winter Storm Warning for snow and winds… which is in effect from midnight tonight to 6 PM MDT Sunday. The Winter Storm Watch has been replaced by this warning.
Snow will develop across southwest Montana and southern portions of central Montana tonight and will continue to affect the region through Sunday afternoon. In addition… brisk north to northeast winds of 15 to 25 mph will cause areas of blowing snow at times… especially in the mountains and through favored canyons and gaps. By Sunday afternoon expect 4 to 8 inches of snow accumulation at lower elevations… with 15 to 30 inches of snow possible in the mountains.
Looks like we might have a winner in the First Snow Contest sooner, rather than later!
