As snow begins to fall across the region tonight, the National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the western part of our viewing area, including Butte-Silver Bow County. Snow is expected to continue through the evening hours into Sunday morning before tapering off to flurries Sunday afternoon.
Most locations can expect anywhere from 1 to 4 inches of snow, with the mountains possibly getting as much as 4 to 8 inches. Those who plan to travel in the next 24 hours should expect winter-like driving conditions. With mild temperatures over the last couple of days, the snow may initially melt on roadways before freezing and building a sheet of ice under the snow.
Once the snow tapers off on Sunday afternoon, a cool night is expected with many locations reaching near or below 0 by Monday morning. The work week looks to be warmer with near average temperatures and a minimal chance for snow by mid-week.
Tune in tonight at 10, Meteorologist Adam Bell will be live from our weather patio with the latest storm information.
