Update
Light snow will continue across much of area today. Updated pop's
to raise them up to categorical for morning as still good
overrunning occurring. Should still taper off late and into
tonight. Bt

Short term Valid for tdy and tue...

light snow was ongoing across much of the area this morning as
energy and moisture streamed in from the southwest as an upper
level trough dug over the northern rockies. Periods of light snow
will continue over the area today as vort maxes move through the
region. Outside of eastern areas, most places should see an inch
or less of additional snow accumulation today, as snow ratios
will remain low. Have gone ahead and cancelled the winter storm
warnings and winter weather advisories for our central and western
zones, and kept the winter weather advisory for powder river and
carter counties going through the evening. 1 to 3 inches of
additional snow accumulations are expected in these areas. Have
gone ahead and hoisted wind chill advisories for the judith gap
and livingston areas through morning, with winds causing wind
chills to range from 20 to 30 below zero. Temperatures will
struggle to make it above zero for many areas today.

Precipitation will slide east tonight as the upper trough moves
overhead and a cold surface high moves over the area. With
decreasing cloud cover and ample snow cover, temperatures will
bottom out in the teens below zero tonight, with some areas closer
to twenty below zero. Low temperature records are possible at
livingston, billings, and sheridan. Drier conditions are expected
for Tuesday with highs in the single digits above zero. A shortwave
moves into northern montana late Tuesday night with a few snow
showers possible over the western mountains. Low temperatures
Tuesday night will range from the single digits below zero west,
to the teens below zero across central and eastern areas. Stp

Long term Valid for wed... Thu... Fri... Sat... Sun...

a series of reinforcing western u.S. Trofs will keep temperatures
from rising very quickly through the week. Guidance keeps
widespread sub zero low temperatures through at least Friday morning
and maybe into Saturday morning if the ECMWF is correct. Highs
will make it back to the 20s by Friday with lower 30s by Saturday
as downslope winds kick in ahead of a stronger upper disturbance
for Sunday Monday.

Moisture advection into the western mountains looks good through
the period with good chances for additional snow into the cooke
city area. But models are advertising mainly dry conditions over
the lower elevations until Sunday Monday time frame. Can't rule
out a few light snow showers mixed in at times through the week
but nothing impactful. Chambers

Aviation
Widespread ifr conditions expected through at least early
afternoon with light snow continuing. Local lifr or lower
conditions possible in upslope favored areas where a period of
morning fog may develop, including kbil. Conditions will improve
from northwest to southeast starting this afternoon as the storm
system shifts southeast of the area. May be mid day Tuesday before
widespreadVFR conditions are in place. Chambers

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
