Temperatures are holding steady above freezing in valleys this afternoon, but that doesn’t mean snow can’t fall to the ground.

Even though snow is not sticking to valley floors, we are still seeing a wintry mix/ heavy, wet snow fall all the way down into the lower elevations.

By this evening, temperatures will drop to freezing and lows will dip down into the mid to low 20s.

Moisture will not be as widespread overnight, but we could still see a skiff of snow in valleys as we wake up and head out the door tomorrow morning.

Little to no impacts are really expected in valleys, but passes will still be getting a few snow showers overnight- keeping pass roads ice and snow covered.

Tomorrow morning there will be a few clouds around, especially around the Bitterroot Valley, but by the afternoon hours, dry air moves in.

This dry, stable air will push out any remaining showers (even in mountains) and we will see a lot more sunshine.

Thursday’s early morning and afternoon conditions will still be listed as mostly stable, too.

It isn’t until Thursday night we track our next big push of moisture back into Western Montana.
