Powder hounds rejoice, another storm on the way

Print Article

A truck drives through the Bad Rock Canyon during a snowstorm late last month. Another system is on its way, the National Weather Service is saying.

A winter storm watch has been issued for Thursday into Friday, with as much as 14 inches of snow expected in places like West Glacier and upwards of two feet of fresh powder in the higher terrain, the National Weather Service is saying.

Places like Kalispell could see 6 to 8 inches of snow through Friday.

The snow is expected as colder air from the east collides with warmer moist air from the west. East of the divide temperatures should fall zero to 15 below in places like East Glacier Park.

The storm will also have brisk winds with gusts around 35 mph. West of the Divide temperatures wonít be as cold, with highs in the 20s and 30s Thursday and Friday.

Snow should taper off by the weekend.

After a fairly quiet weekend with highs in the 30s, another round of snow is expected Tuesday.
