An Alberta Clipper system will push a cold front south across North Central Montana Wednesday morning / afternoon and into Southwest Montana by Wednesday night. This cold front will bring falling temperatures and another shot of accumulating snow to the region. At this time, the Continental Divide, mountains of Central Montana, and the associated east- and north-facing foothills are expected to see the most snowfall from this event. Northerly winds in the wake of the cold front may also cause areas of blowing snow. Winds will increase and shift more westerly on Friday, which will increase the risk for reduced visibilities in blowing snow over a large portion of the region, especially in open areas. Drifting snow will also likely cause snow- and ice-covered roads Friday into Saturday.
