Regional Weather Summary
National Weather Service Glasgow MT
250 AM MDT Fri Mar 23 2018

This is the Regional Weather Summary for the eastern two thirds
of Montana, Southern Saskatchewan, and Western North Dakota.

An efficient and active storm system is now impacting the region as
of early this morning with moderate to heavy precipitation occurring
at many locations. Rain is likely falling across central and
southern Montana. Snow is likely falling near the Saskatchewan and
North Dakota borders with northeast Montana. A subtle mix of
rain/freezing rain/snow is falling somewhere in-between. Steady
easterly winds of 30 mph gusting to 40 mph are common.

Through the rest of today, the heavier band of precipitation will
continue to arc northward through the area, eventually changing over
to all snow, especially over the northeastern portion of the region.
Snow accumulations around 5 to 6 inches are possible near and north
of a line from Opheim through Culbertson through Williston. A narrow
zone of about 20 miles will mark the difference between 4 inches of
snowfall and just a trace of snowfall. Expect high temperatures to
range from the lower 30s to lower 40s. Winds will quickly calm
toward the middle of the day.

Tonight, skies will become partly cloudy as the storm system pushes
completely eastward out of northeast Montana. Expect low
temperatures to range from the upper teens to upper 20s. Winds will
be light and variable.

Saturday, expect partly cloudy skies and temperatures to range from
the mid 30s to around 50 degrees with a chance of a quick, passing
rain shower.
