Ready for the first blizzard of the season? That’s right! Montana is going to get hit with snow again already and this time it’s seriously impressive and more wide spread. It looks like North Dakota will get the most crippling part of this snow storm but Montana, the Upper Rockies, South Dakota and Minnesota should be on high alert. We’re talking unseasonably cold temperatures and 4 to 12 inches of snow across most of those areas and up to 2 to 3 feet in North Dakota! We are calling this a full-on blizzard because in North Dakota the heavy snow will be accompanied by 50 to 60 mph winds in some areas with 30 to 40 mph winds widespread! That will create some serious issues and snow drifts! This is also a snow moving storm so it will be around a day or two.
After the storm moves into Minnesota, it will weaken significantly and fade to light snow showers and rain through the Upper Midwest and Northeast. The unseasonably cold temperatures will remain in the plains and Northwest, but will calm down in the middle of next week. The South will have sustained warm temperatures.
