Yet more snow is heading to Montana, with the NOAA calling for up to 16-inches in the mountains. A winter storm warning will be in effect from Tuesday evening through Thursday morning.
Expect temperatures to drop more than 30ºF overnight from Tuesday to Wednesday, accompanied by gusting winds up to 35-mph. Extreme wind chill as low as -20ºF could be possible too.
Cold Canadian air will drop south and result in what looks to be a moderate to strong event for Montana and northern Wyoming. The last system dumped up to 5-feet in a concentrated area over a 36-hour period, but this one could see a number of ski resorts benefit, including Big Sky, Bridger Bowl, Whitefish and Red Lodge Mountain.
Last week a state of emergency was issued in Montana when over 4-feet of fresh snow fell in some areas, breaking records stretching back decades.
Big Sky Resort got 8″ fresh snow on Friday into Saturday, and it’s really starting to look like winter there now!
