Severe cold, more snow, pushing into Montana

More stormy weather is headed for Montana- GNP Lake McDonald webcam(MISSOULA)- It's back to snowy, cold weather for Montana this week, as the state gets another shot of winter weather and cold air pushing south out of Canada.

National Weather Service forecasters say light snow will develop across Western Montana and central Idaho through Monday morning, with areas of heavier snow possible at times, especially in the Bitterroot Valley.

But snow isn't the worst of what's coming.

Forecasters are expecting the most significant push of cold northeast winds since a cold snap pushed temps below zero for the first time in more than two years in Missoula back in early December. Overnight lows will drop into the single digits, and below zero, with cold blustery winds pushing wind chill factors down to dangerous levels on Wednesday morning. 

Temperatures are likely to stay in that range until late in the week, with lows in Kalispell down to -15 on Wednesday night. 

The winds and wind chills will be especially severe east of the Divide. NWS expects snow the first part of the week to be replaced with bitter cold by mid-week. Tuesday night's low in Great Falls is forecast down to -23.
