Montana Weather Summary
National Weather Service Great Falls MT
525 PM MST Tue Feb 21 2017
Moisture streaming into the region from off the Pacific, combined
with several upper level disturbances, has made for generally
unsettled weather of late across the Treasure State. Today was no
different as scattered to numerous rain and snow showers developed
and even a few thunderstorms. One of the stronger storms produced
penny size hail near Miles City.
As of 5pm, temperatures were generally in the 30s and 40s, although
a few locations in southeast Montana were still in the 50s with more
sunshine compared to the rest of the state.
A cold front dropping south will bring rain and snow to the northern
half of the state tonight, with a somewhat lower chance elsewhere.
The highest snowfall amounts through Wednesday morning are expected
in the mountains, but even over the plains and valleys, light
accumulations will be possible. Of note, a wintry mix will be
possible across parts of northeastern Montana tonight. Across the
southern half of Montana, it will remain windy this evening,
followed by a gradual decrease overnight.
