Montana Weather Summary
National Weather Service Billings MT
340 PM MST Sat Nov 18 2017

Today...Wind was the main impact in the Treasure State. Although
most of Montana had west winds of 10 to 20 mph, strong winds blew
across the east slopes of the Rockies. Winds there were mostly 20 to
30 mph with gusts to 40 mph, but gusts were in excess of 50 mph
closer to the Rocky Mountain Front, where areas of blowing snow
reduced visibility at times. Otherwise, high pressure aloft kept the
area mostly dry with areas of mid and high cloudiness passing
overhead. A few snow showers lingered over the Continental Divide
through the morning, but they dissipated early in the afternoon.

At 3 PM MST...Temperatures had mostly warmed into the 30s to lower
40s, ranging from 23 degrees at West Yellowstone to 45 degrees at
both Billings and Missoula.

Overnight...Areas of mid and high cloudiness will continue moving
over the state. Westerly winds of 10 to 20 mph will continue to be
common, but the east slopes of the Rockies will still see 20 to 30
mph winds with gusts to 40 mph. Lows will mostly be in the 20s to
lower 30s, but single digits and teens are likely in some southwest
valleys and along the Canadian border in northeast Montana.
