SNOW FORECAST

Sidney could see up to an inch of snow this Saturday.

The National Weather Service in Glasgow is predicting snow for Eastern Montana on Saturday but the current outlook shows Sidney will likely see about an inch of snow at the most.

Whether or not snow falls, temperatures are dropping below freezing for the next several days with the possibility of sub-zero temperatures overnight on Sunday. The current prediction is -4. Once the temperatures drop below freezing on Friday night highs are not expected to reach above freezing until Wednesday.

A low pressure system is developing off the Rocky Mountain Front and will track across Eastern Montana. That low pressure system is expected to bring snow to the area with a 79% chance of snow on Saturday. The prediction is for up to one inch of snow.

Snow could cause some issues with driving as snow covered roads are likely and could lead to slippery conditions which could cause slide offs. Visibility will also be reduced at times in areas of heavier snow intensity and breezy conditions.

There is still some uncertainty on track of the Low and placement of associated snow band.
