A Pacific weather system will bring snow to the mountains and slick travel due to freezing rain to the valleys Sunday through Sunday night. The snow levels will generally be around 4,000 feet. Freezing rain is less likely in Lemhi County and across southwest Montana. A cold front will cause snow levels to fall during the day Monday, but there could be a chance for mixed precipitation in the lower valleys of north-central Idaho Monday morning. Intense snow showers are expected with the cold front passage early Monday. Expect low visibility, gusty winds and continued potential for wintry travel.
An arctic front will impact western Montana Tuesday into Wednesday. High confidence exists for the front to cross into the Glacier Park region by early Tuesday morning. Snow and blowing snow, with gusts up to 40 mph, will impact travel on US-2 from Badrock Canyon to Marias Pass. The arctic front will progress south and west through Tuesday evening, leading to winter driving conditions across western Montana. Dangerous wind chills are expected, especially along the divide. Lesser confidence exists for the arctic front to cross south and west of the I-90 corridor.
Valley inversions redevelop on Thursday expect freezing fog and stratus. At times visibility in the mornings may be as low as 1/4 mile, while ice may create slick conditions on sidewalks and roadways.
