We're seeing our second, stronger push of moisture associated with our incoming system now moving into western Montana.
Winter Weather Advisories are out for the Lower Clark Fork, Potomac/Seeley Lake and West Glacier Regions along with the Bitterroot/Sapphire Mountains until 5 p.m. Saturday. In these locations, lower elevations could see 1"-4" of snow while the mountains see 6"-12" easily. Along with the snow, very gusty winds. All other areas could see light accumulations Friday night into Saturday.
Highs will only top out in the low to upper 30s Saturday after the passage of the system's cold front.
Sunday looks to be much quieter with mostly cloudy skies and lingering light flurries from time to time. Highs will be around average in the upper 30s.
We could be ushering in our next system Monday into Tuesday for the northern Rockies. This next one doesn't look as strong as the current incoming system, but we still have the potential for light to moderate mountain snowfall with light valley accumulations.
Most of next week looks unsettled.
