..snow and blowing snow and rapid freezing of roads late 
this afternoon and this through this evening... 

Discussion...a large low pressure system along the Pacific 
northwest coast has brought moderate to heavy snow showers this 
morning and afternoon through northwest and west-central Montana 
this morning and afternoon, as well as portions of north-central 
Idaho. A Canadian cold front has been dropping southward, 
resulting in several inches of snow reported for northwest Montana 
and strong and cold, gusty winds. Several Road incidents have been 
reported near the Kalispell and Flathead Lake areas associated 
with snow, low visibility, blowing snow, strong winds, and slick 
roads. Chain restrictions were placed along The Divide for 
MacDonald Pass. Degraded conditions have also been reported along 
Highway 200, Highway 93, and I-90 corridors. Winter storm warnings 
and advisories are in effect, and are expected to remain in 
effect through Wednesday morning. 

As the cold front continues to move down the northern rockies, 
snow showers will also push southward and cold air with strong winds 
will take its place. Any wet or slushy roads throughout the day 
will become frozen and hazardous in the wake of the cold air 
and/or after sunset. This timing is especially significant for 
evening commuters in the Missoula and Bitterroot valleys and 
surrounding vicinity. Mountain roads and passes are expected to 
have blowing snow through Wednesday morning, which could reduce 
visibility and create slick patches despite previously being cleared. 
Lingering snow showers will persist for portions of north-central 
Idaho, Lost Trail Pass, and southwest Montana through Wednesday 

Wind chill factors may dip to 10 to 20 below zero in local areas 
where wind will persist tonight, such as Hellgate Canyon (or 
downtown missoula) and bad Rock Canyon near Columbia Falls. 

The next big impact will be very cold temperatures Thanksgiving 
morning and Friday morning. Temperatures will be widespread in the 
single digits across much of western Montana. Extreme cold 
temperatures anywhere from 10 to 20 below zero are anticipated in higher 
valleys. This includes Butte, Georgetown Lake, Philipsburg, 
Ovando, and the Seeley/Swan Valley. 

Mainly dry conditions are anticipated through the middle of next 
week, with the exception of this weekend. Models are indicating a 
weather system to our south will produce some wrap around 
moisture Saturday and Sunday. If this occurs, a few inches of 
snow may be possible along The Divide and southwest Montana. 
There is some discrepancy to where this may occur. Given such 
uncertainty, some slight chance of precipitation has been 
introduced for this weekend in southwest Montana. 

Otherwise expect cold temperatures to remain in the lower valleys. 
They will be tough to scour out with the light winds and stable 
conditions. The next major system to potentially impact the northern 
rockies may not occur until late next week. 


Aviation...a winter storm will continue to affect area terminals 
this afternoon and evening. Snow at kgpi will taper off, but 
gusty northeast winds will continue into the nighttime hours. For 
kmso, the front and associated wind shift to east winds will 
occur this afternoon. Snow is expected to continue through the 
evening in west central Montana. For kbtm, snow will likely 
increase in intensity after dark, continuing through the 
overnight hours. Quickly falling temperatures this evening will 
likely cause freezing of any wet runway surfaces. By tomorrow 
morning, kbtm and ksmn are expected to see lingering snow showers. 
Expect low ceilings and low visibility at times at all terminals 
due to snow and blowing snow.
