Here we go again for elevations above 6,000 feet. Just a couple inches expected in the valleys but way more in the mountains. DETAILS HERE:

The National Weather Service in Great Falls has issued a Winter
Weather Advisory for elevations above 6000 feet for snow and blowing
snow… which is in effect from 5 am Wednesday to 5 am MST Thursday.

* Timing and main impact: Pacific moisture associated with a
trough of low pressure will bring snow to the higher elevations
of southwest Montana Wednesday through Thursday.

expected above 6000 feet with 1 to 3 inches below 6000 feet.
Locally higher amounts are possible on the highest peaks.

* Winds and visibility: gusty Ridgetop winds from the west-
southwest at 20 to 30 mph will create areas of blowing snow with
reduced visibilities over mountain passes.

* Other impacts: snow-covered roads and reduced visibilities less
than one half mile over mountain passes and highways in times of
falling and blowing snow.
