Central Montana is in great need of more snow, and there's good news: up to 6" of fresh snow is headed for the Little Belt and Highwood Mountains by Saturday morning. Travel on King's Hill Pass and the surrounding area may be affected.

We've written a lot about Montana's lack of snowpack this year. Certain parts of the state are still VERY far behind snowpack average, so this advisory is great news for central Montana.

Portions of Montana have improved greatly, such as the southern portion of southwest Montana. That area near Yellowstone National Park and the Idaho border has received large amounts of snow during recent storms. As of March 28th, 2024 this is the SNOTEL water equivalent map:

"Approaching the traditional Western peak snowpack date of April 1, snow-water equivalencies were mostly near or above average, except in much of Montana, Washington, northern Idaho, and northeastern Wyoming. Those low snowpack numbers were reflected in ongoing moderate to extreme drought (D1 to D3) in the northern Rockies and environs." (Drought Monitor)
