...High elevation snow likely across Southwest Montana through
A Pacific low pressure system will bring periods of precipitation
to Southwest Montana today and tonight, which will help lower snow
levels to between 6500 and 7500 feet. Most locations between 7000
feet and 8500 feet will receive an inch or two of wet snowfall,
but 4 to 8 inches are possible above 8500 feet, mainly in the
Gallatin and Madison Ranges.
Snow should be light enough at mountain pass level to only cause
wet and slick roads with little, if any, accumulation.
For those recreating at higher elevations in Southwest Montana,
be prepared for cold temperatures with areas of poor visibility
and wet snowfall. However, if you are not prepared for such raw
backcountry conditions, you may consider making plans to move
towards lower elevations.
