Travel very much could still be affected in many parts of the state. Please use caution out there. If you don’t have to travel and can stay off the roads, please do. If you do have to travel, slow down, use caution and have a winter survival kit with you.
Cold. Temps in the teens for most of us, with strong winds at times. The cold temperatures combined with the winds will drop wind chills into the single digits/ below zero, with the coldest wind chills to the north of Billings.
Cold and dry, temps in the 20’s and 30’s across much of Eastern MT. But there still could be a lot of ice around due to the cold overnight temps, which could cause a slick morning commute. Teens and single digits again for Monday night.
Tuesday - Sunday:
The week ahead will be cold, temps into the 20’s and 30’s, which are below normal. Tuesday could see a small system move in from the west, but if it brings any precipitation, it probably will be limited to higher elevations.
Could be back up into the 40’s by next weekend.
BE SAFE OUT THERE EVERYONE AND HAVE A GREAT WEEK!
