NOAA is forecasting 2-6″ of snow for Big Sky Resort, Montana in the next 3-days.
Tuesday: Snow likely, mainly after noon. New snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible.
Tuesday Night: Snow likely. New snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible.– NOAA Great Falls, MT today
Snow levels will drop as low as 3,500′ and maybe even lower on Tuesday night when the bulk of the precipitation is forecast to fall.
“Snow levels initially around 6000 ft Monday night will lower to around 3500 feet Tuesday and potentially lower Tuesday night. Greatest threat for impacts from accumulating snow still looks to be along the continental divide as well as areas along the east slopes of the Rocky Mtn Front.” – NOAA Great Falls, MT today
Big Sky Resort has already been seeing snow since early September and if this keeps up, we’re hoping this stuff will start to stick and create a base for us to slide on very soon…
“A slow-moving Pacific weather disturbance affects north-central and southwest MT this weekend. The result will be periods of mountain snow, especially above 5000 feet, and mainly rain at lower elevations. The bulk of precipitation is expected to fall in the mountains. Thus, the mountains will receive the greatest precipitation totals.” – NOAA Great Falls, MT yesterday
