Less than a week after the historic storm that dumped up to 5-FEET on some areas of Montana, the NOAA is predicting another big snowfall for the southwest of the state, spelling good news for Big Sky Resort.
An upper level disturbance will move through the region today.
Numerous rain and snow showers are expected across southwest
Montana, but there is only a low chance for showers in central
and north central Montana. Snow accumulations of 1 or 2 inches
are possible at lower elevations of southwest Montana, with 6 to
12 inches expected in the mountains of Madison and Gallatin
Counties. Temperatures will remain cool on Friday, but warmer
temperatures will move into the region over the weekend.
Last week’s huge storm came after a couple of smaller ones, and resort staff were confident that that would be the start to their winter base.
The storm will move through quickly, dumping up to a foot at higher elevations, before temperatures warm up over the weekend.
