An active weather pattern will bring another chance for accumulating snow to Montana later this evening and overnight.
New forecast data indicates another round of snow will develop across central Montana Tuesday evening, ending by Wednesday morning.
We are tracking a vigorous upper-level disturbance that will move north into the state, forcing light to moderate snow to develop.
Confidence is high that the mountains of central Montana will see accumulating snow, but there is some uncertainty as to how much snow the lower elevations will receive.
This fast moving storm system should exit the state by mid morning Wednesday.
A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for most of the Great Falls area until 6 a.m. Wednesday.
2-4" of snow will fall at the lower elevations, with up to 6" in the mountains.
Travelers should be prepared for winter driving conditions as the snow piles up overnight.
Visibilities may drop below one mile due to the falling snow.
