Fresh Western Montana snow just in time for Christmas

Posted at 9:30 AM, Dec 23, 2020

MISSOULA — After several weeks of dry weather, followed by an unseasonably warm period which brought valley rain, western Montana finally received a fresh batch of snow on Tuesday.

Most valley locations saw a range of 1" to 3" of snow, with a few towns getting several inches more, leading to slippery roads and sidewalks for our Wednesday morning commute.

While we can expect a little snowmelt between now and Christmas Day, our Tuesday snowfall guarantees that most will wake up to a white Christmas on Friday morning.

We are expecting a sunny sky Wednesday and Thursday with no additional snow until Saturday.
