405 PM MST Sun Jan 15 2017
A disturbance brought scattered mid and high clouds to Montana
today, while fog and haze continued to be trapped in the valleys
west of the Continental Divide and in the Helena Valley with light
snow flurries occurring at times. A surface trough over Central
Montana also continued breezy westerly downslope winds along the
east slopes of the Rockies. Winds were especially strong close to
the Rocky Mountain Front, where gusts of 40 to 60 mph were common.
At 3 pm...Temperatures had warmed into the 20s and 30s in the windy
areas, but they were only in the single digits and teens in far
Eastern Montana and in the valleys of Western and Southwest Montana.
The warmest reading was 40 degrees in Raynesford, and the cool spot
was Helena at 5 degrees.
Overnight...The scattered clouds will remain over the state, while
fog, haze, and flurries linger in the Helena Valley and in valleys
west of the Divide. The westerly winds will decrease somewhat over
the east slopes of the Rockies, but winds will be light elsewhere.
Lows will be in the teens in these breezy areas, but single digits
above and below zero are expected elsewhere.
