Thursday forecast: overnight snow could bring up to 3 inches


The National Weather Service has issued a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for the Butte/Blackfoot region from 3 am to 6 pm Thursday.

The Bighorn Mountains in Wyoming could see up to 12 inches of snow and 5 to 9 inches is expected around Yellowstone Park and the Cody foothills.

Areas impacted: Livingston to Billing to Miles City.

Temperatures will be ripe for snow, with highs mostly in the 30s. On top of the rain Friday evening through Saturday morning we will get another round of seasonably late snow. Winds S 5-10 miles per hour.

As colder air surges in behind the system early Saturday morning, temperatures will again fall into the 20s.

The temperature tonight will drop to about 25 degrees, and Friday could bring snow and rain. Little (a coating to an inch) to no accumulation is expected.

Authorities say the weather and road conditions also contributed to three mid-Michigan traffic deaths Tuesday. Most wintry precip will switch to plain rain after midnight but rain will still be around in the form of off & on showers by the Wednesday morning drive.

When the storms start moving away, winds will begin to whip across the region, possibly gusting as high as 50 miles per hour in the afternoon and evening Wednesday, Rowland said.

Train services between Switzerland, Italy and Spain are not expected to operate at all today as a result of the action. Global train services also face disruption: no trains were set to run between France, Switzerland, Italy and Spain.

Snow is not a usual word to use in April forecasts in Madison, but the word is in the week's forecast four times, including Thursday night. East winds 5 to 15 miles per hour.

Saturday will be partly sunny and chilly.

Friday night will be clear and colder.

This ought to be our first soaking rain since March 21, with some rainfall totals above 1 inch across our part of the state.

Accumulating snow in April is somewhere between infrequent and rare, but it does happen.

Not exactly baseball weather but in this weather pattern, at least it's not snowing! Initially, this storm could start off as a mix of rain and snow before transitioning to all snow.
