A storm system presently pushing through the region is delivering snow for locations along the Canadian border early this morning, and rain/wintry mix for places further south. This rain will transition to snow by late morning for most of northeast Montana. For areas that see the most snow, namely Opheim and points southeast toward the MT/ND border, 4 to 6 inches with isolated higher totals are forecast. A general 1 to 3 inches are expected for most other locations throughout northeast Montana by late this afternoon. Northwest winds will also ramp up today to 15 to 30 mph, gusting to 40 mph. These winds will cause blowing and drifting of any snow. A Winter Weather Advisory is now in effect for most of northeast Montana due to expected travel difficulties from snow accumulations as well as snow covered roads & blowing/drifting snow. Additionally, temperatures will fall sharply late this afternoon, bottoming out between 0 and 10 above for most places by Saturday morning. Places with currently wet surfaces may also see some icy spots develop as a result. If traveling, take it slow, and allow extra time to reach your destination.
