National Weather Service has issued WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY's above 6,000' tonight into Saturday morning. 2" to 5" of snow is possible above 6,000' with 1" - 2" for some of the valleys.
A weak system is passing through Montana tonight into Saturday. This will be followed by a warm front into Sunday and Monday which could also produce areas of rain or snow.
Best chance for snow will come overnight into early Saturday morning and as temperatures warm up into the 40's by afternoon look for a scattered mix of rain or snow at times.
Those planning on traveling overnight and Saturday morning should be prepared for snowpacked and icy conditions with gusty winds reducing visibilities at times, especially over the mountain passes. Hunters should also be prepared for wintry weather conditions this weekend.
