Little or no snow accumulation expected. Temperatures will remain 15-20° below normal this afternoon, with highs only in the mid 30s. This storm is smaller than this last one but still potent, some models indicating it could be as high as 8 inches of snow.

A slow moving low pressure trough is expected to bring five to ten centimetres of snow for south central and southern parts of the province, according to Environment Canada.

Wednesday: Rain likely, possibly mixed with snow before 9 a.m., then a chance of rain. Expect a rather breezy day with southwest Montana seeing 20-25 miles per hour wind gusts this afternoon, while west central and northwest Montana could see winds gust around 30-35 miles per hour. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 52. A few rain or snow showers may linger this evening and early on tonight, but expect a lot of the activity to fall apart once the sun goes down.

All other areas will experience some light snow showers this morning, changing to off and on light rain this afternoon with northwest Montana having the best chance of seeing these showers. East wind 7 to 13 miles per hour.

Friday - Partly sunny, with a high near 48. Have a great and safe rest of the week!
