Bone-chilling frigid air rolls in with snow overnight

Posted January 11, 2018

The valleys of west central and southwest Montana will see snow showers during the early morning hours on Thursday, then as the main system arrives snow will quickly transition over to a rain/snow mix then all rain by late morning and early afternoon. Highs are forecast to reach only the teens in Duluth on Thursday, and the single digits above zero on Friday. South wind 13 to 17 miles per hour.

That could mean lows in record-cold territory where snow covers the ground - and as cold if not a degree or two colder than some of the lowest temps we've seen so far this season even without snow on the ground. Total snow accumulations of 3 to 5 inches and ice accumulations of a light glaze are possible. As high pressure slides off the coast, we will have a brisk south wind. The combination of accumulating snowfall and the strong winds may produce blizzard conditions.

"It's not so likely in Harrisburg - there's a better chance of snow in northern and western Pennsylvania".

"The main thing we're anxious about this morning is the morning commute", Brian Tesar, a senior forecaster with the National Weather Service's Billings office, said Wednesday morning. Coupled with high winds, travel could become extremely risky if not impossible. A narrow swath of up to 7 inches is possible somewhere from the New Ulm/Mankato areas northeast to east central Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin.

No accumulation in Denver, but 1 inch is possible across the Palmer Divide and the foothills.

Rain will gradually change to freezing rain, sleet or snow Friday morning, mainly after 6 a.m.
