And while snow accumulations won’t amount to a foot of fresh, up to a 3″ could fall on the higher mountains of Montana over the course of the next two days.

“Rain and snow will develop over the Rocky Mountain Front and across the mountains of Central MT from Thursday evening through Friday morning. Accumulating snowfall is possible, mainly for elevations above 7000 feet.”NWS Great Falls Facebook Page
