Heavy snow is predicted for parts of western Montana this week and that could significantly impact travel plans.

This week’s weather forecast is complex and has a lot of moving pieces. Long story short: Some west-central Montana valleys could get close to a foot of snow by Friday. The mountains could get double that.

A very strong cold front will affect western Montana on Thursday evening. The main impact will be from the strong gusty winds along the cold front late Thursday afternoon through Thursday night.

The National Weather Service predicts fairly tame weather across Montana through Thursday evening, when we could see some dramatic changes.

Traveling for Thanksgiving? If so, don’t stress out about the weather, at least not until Friday.

Governor Steve Bullock this afternoon declared a state of disaster in Montana due to wildfires. Two previous executive orders declared states of emergency. This disaster declaration allows Governor Bullock to mobilize additional state resources and more Montana National Guard troops to combat the fires. It is in conjunction with a directive to the Montana Department of Transportation that temporarily suspends certain regulations in order to make it easier to transport heavy firefighting equipment.
