Sidney could see up to four inches of snow Saturday while those north of Highway 2 could see more.

The National Weather Service in Glasgow has updated their prediction for snow in Richland County for Saturday, now stating the area could get as much as four inches of the white stuff. The update also places Sidney in a Winter Weather Advisory with northern parts of the county being under a Winter Weather Warning. Those above Highway 2 will see the most snow.

According to the report, snow covered roads likely and will lead to slippery conditions which could cause slide offs. Visibility will be reduced at times in areas of heavier snow intensity and breezy conditions.

Snow will begin early Saturday morning, spreading northeast through the day. Warm air moving in from the south will change the snow to rain during the afternoon, and affect snowfall amounts.

A low pressure system will develop over the northern Rockies today and track across Eastern Montana on Saturday. The system will move out of the region on Saturday evening, with very cold temperatures expected into early next week.
