Polar Invasion: Freezing Temperatures, Heavy Snow For Parts Of America

View image on Twitter
A massive storm packing arctic air moved eastward Sunday, promising a deep chill for two-thirds of the U.S. and heavy snow from Montana to Michigan, according to meteorologists.
 
The “season’s first significant snow” will begin Sunday in Montana and the Dakotas, according to The Weather Channel. As the storm moves east through Monday, it will pick up strength and drop greater amounts of snow, delivering up to 18 inches around the Great Lakes by Tuesday. Commuters are warned to be careful of slick and slushy roads Monday morning in parts of Minnesota, the Dakotas, northern Wyoming and Montana. The National Weather Service cautioned that high winds would gust the falling or accumulated snow, adding to the dangerous conditions.
 
The arctic outbreak is also expected to set record low temperatures in some parts of the U.S.
 
The cold front will hit Montana and the Dakotas late Sunday, according to The Weather Channel, which said temperatures will plummet from a high of around 60 degrees to the teens in some places. A low of 12 degrees was expected in northern Montana overnight, following a daytime high of 24 degrees, according to Weather..com.
 
And the front will extend all the way to the Texas Panhandle, which can expect temperatures in the 40s, The Weather Channel said. Parts of northern Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas were under hard freeze watches on Sunday, according to the National Weather Service.
 
Temperatures will hover below average in the central and eastern U.S. through much of the week, Weather..com predicted.

Unseasonably cold low pressure system to bring snow to Montana, Wyoming, USA

Snow Alert

While much of the U.S. will swelter in heat and humidity this weekend, it will feel more like winter for much of Montana and Wyoming. 

An unseasonably cold low pressure system is expected to bring below-average temperatures to the northern Rockies through early next week. Temperatures will be up to 35 degrees below average in some locations this weekend. Glacier National Park may not even reach 50 degrees for a high on Saturday.

In fact, low temperatures will drop below freezing in the higher elevations, leading to the chance for the first snow of the season to fall. In West Glacier, Montana, the average date for the first temperature below 32 degrees is Sept. 13, so the cold conditions are about three weeks ahead of schedule. 

There is abundant moisture with this system that will bring rain to the region with snow possible in the higher elevations. There will be gusty winds as well. The cold rain will be heavy at times and enhanced by deepening upslope flow on the eastern side of the Rocky Mountains.

Snow accumulations will generally be a few inches or less, and the snow is expected to melt quickly. Up to 8 inches of snow is possible on the highest peaks through Sunday.

Snow levels will lower to near 6,500 feet in Glacier National Park, with light accumulations possible at Logan Pass. The higher peaks of the Big Horn Mountains in Wyoming could see about 3 inches of snow by Sunday.

Snow has occurred in Glacier National Park in August before. The National Park Service says that in 1992 a foot of snow fell in the northeastern section of the park. Snow has fallen even in lower elevations in August. During the 1992 storm Great Falls, Montana, reported 8.3″ of snow, and the coldest high temperature for the month of August was set at 38 degrees on Aug. 22.

This past June a snowstorm delayed the opening of Going-to-the-Sun Road, a main road in Glacier National Park.

Anyone with outdoor or travel plans this weekend in western Montana and Wyoming should be prepared for rapidly changing and winterlike conditions.

There is another chance of snow Monday and Tuesday as another disturbance moves through the region. Cold mornings will continue through Wednesday with frost likely as well. However, temperatures will moderate by late week and drier weather will return.
