Montana Weather Summary
National Weather Service Great Falls MT
230 PM MST Sun Feb 18 2018

Skies over the Treasure State remained partly to mostly cloudy early 
Sunday afternoon as the winter storm that brought widespread 
accumulating snows overnight gradually diminished in strength. Areas 
of light snow continued to affect some locations but the overall 
trend pointed to slowly improving conditions for much of the state 
with only minor amounts of additional accumulations.

Most locations across Montana reported temperatures in the single 
digits above zero Sunday afternoon and winds were primarily north 
to northeasterly and generally light. However, a few locations west 
of the Continental Divide, including Kalispell, reported wind gusts 
in excess of 30 mph. At 2 PM MST, temperatures ranged from 1 degree 
above zero at Cut Bank to 25 at West Yellowstone.

The forecast for Sunday night into President's Day continues to call 
for light accumulating snows across central and southern portions of 
Montana while northern locations should see only isolated light snow 
showers or flurries. Overnight low temperatures across the state 
will drop into the single digits and teens below zero with wind 
chill temperatures ranging from 20 below to 35 below zero.
