Montana Weather Summary
National Weather Service Great Falls MT
350 PM MST Sat Feb 25 2017

A somewhat unstable northwest flow aloft brought scattered snow
showers to most of Montana this afternoon, with multiple inches of
additional snowfall reported in the mountains. However, gusty
westerly downsloping winds 20 to 30 mph with gusts to 45 mph kept
the plains of the Rocky Mountain Front east to a Havre to Great
Falls line mostly sunny. Winds elsewhere were only gusting to around
30 mph.

At 3 pm...temperatures across the state had mostly warmed into the
20s, ranging from 16 degrees at West Yellowstone to 36 degrees at
Fort Benton.

Overnight...the snow showers will decrease over southern Montana,
but they will increase over northern Montana, especially after
midnight, as a cold front moves slowly south out of Canada. This
will mostly bring impacts of blowing and heavier falling snow to the
Rocky Mountain Front. Winds elsewhere will also remain breezy out of
the west. Lows will mostly fall into the teens to lower 20s.
