BILLINGS — While southern Montana and northern Wyoming do not come close to the biggest impacts, rain, snow and cold dominate the weekend weather.

September Winter Storm Impacts

Areas of central and Western Montana will gget the bulk of the cold and the snow over the weekend. Areas in the Rocky mountain front could pick up 1 to 3 feet of snow in the highest elevations, with impressive accumulations for late September forecast for much of the area.

For south-central and southeastern Montana and northern Wyoming, the biggest impacts will be felt from Park County, Montana ( Livingston) North to Wheatland (Harlowton) and Fergus (Lewistown) counties. Much of this area will see accumulating snow by the end of the weekend and early next week with impacts to travel, agriculture, and recreation.

For the rest of the area (including Billings), expect high temperatures only in the 30s and 40s by Saturday and Sunday, with lows dropping to the 20s to low 30s through early next week. Areas of frost, freeze and freezing fog can be expected. Cold morning wind chill values are expected early next week.

This system looks to hold its grip through the middle of next week.
