Storm Forecast: From Snow to Severe

11 Oct 2016, 5:47 pm

A significant pool of cold air is spilling from Canada into the northern United States this week. Since that cold air also came with some moisture, much of Montana has been seeing snow. Snow accumulation will taper off Tuesday night, but roads will still be slushy or slick.




For areas of the High Plains that didn’t get significant snow, temperatures still felt more like winter than fall Tuesday. After reaching 73 degrees Monday afternoon, Rapid City barely made it into the 40s on Tuesday. Nearby Gillette, WY was even colder with a high of 35 degrees.


As this cold front moves east, there is the potential for some light snow accumulation in northern Wisconsin on Wednesday. Most of the Midwest though will be dealing with rain and thunderstorms. As the front moves into the Chicago area and St. Louis Wednesday afternoon, there is a chance for some storms to become severe. The main threat from these storms will be damaging winds.
