More snow on the way (yes, really)


Yes, very cold for April 17th! A Freeze Warning is in effect from 10 10 a.m. Tuesday for most of the southern third of the state.

The rain could then change to snow in Yellowstone, Musselshell, Carbon and Big Horn counties, around 6:30 a.m. Tuesday, then kick out of the area by afternoon.

Wednesday will feature a brief return to some milder afternoon high temperatures, although it won't be anything too warm. Lots of cloud cover and strong cold winds will keep all the light snow cover on the ground at least through Tuesday.

In lower MI, freezing rain that began falling overnight had left roads treacherous and cut power to hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses by midday Sunday. This rain shouldn't be anywhere near as heavy as Monday morning's rain, with totals looking to be only on the order of two tenths of an inch to maybe as high as a half inch.

Look for better weather to start Wednesday before the next system moves in late day in the evening. Gusty northwest winds are expected Friday and this northwest wind flow will bring a reinforcing shot of unseasonably cool air back into the area. Dry weather will persist throughout the day, and skies will be partly cloudy.

Tonight - A chance of rain and snow showers before 11 p.m., then a chance of snow showers. West wind 15 to 18 miles per hour.

Friday - Partly sunny, with a high near 48. Sunday should be a little bit closer to normal with low 60s expected.

And Monday, Barlow is calling for a high all the way up to 62 degrees.
