Q2 Weather: The next snow storm has entered Montana

Posted: Updated:

BILLINGS - It is hard to tell from the gloomy skies, but it’s actually a pretty nice day in Billings.

The temperature is 43° in Billings with a wind chill factor that’s 36 degrees.

The Doppler radar shows the next storm has already made its way into the state, and it's snowing in Great Falls and Lewistown.

It is in the process of making its way down towards Yellowstone and Teton parks.

The threat board across Montana is already starting to fill up, mostly with a Winter Weather Advisory along with a High Wind Warning in a Wind Advisory.

This next storm should bring us 4 to 6 inches of snow around Kalispell all the way to Havre and 1 to 3 inches of snow by Glasgow in the Northeast corner the state.

Bozeman into the park could see 4 to 6 inches of snow with local amounts up to 10 inches. Plus gusty winds on the Beartooth and Cody foothills.

Winds there could be gusting 60 to 70 mph with the passage of this next cold front overnight.

The computer model shows the snow will approach the Billings area and then it will jump over Billings and reform just south of the city.

Downsloping winds off the Bull Mountains will cause a dry slot in Yellowstone County Wednesday evening.

This means we will have to wait for the whole cold front to push on through in the south-central Montana sometime after 6 a.m. Thursday.

This also means since we are not getting very much snowfall Wednesday night and only on Thursday morning our snowfall estimate is just about cut in half.

The computer models says now Billings will only get a little more than three quarters of an inch of snow out of the storm, Livingston about 3 inches and Miles City one a half inches.


Tonight: Mostly cloudy with a threat of numerous rain and snow showers early evening and more snow possible overnight. Northwest winds 5 to 15 mph. Low 12 degrees.

Thursday: Mostly cloudy with an 80 percent chance for snow in the morning and early afternoon and much colder. Northeast winds 5 to 15 mph. High 16 degrees.

Friday: Partly sunny with a 20 percent chance for afternoon snow and not as cold Southwest winds 10 to 20 mph. High 34 degrees.
