Snow Advisory Issued for Glacier National Park

Temperatures expected to be 10 to 15 degrees below normal

By Beacon Staff

The National Weather Service says temperatures will be 10 to 15 degrees below normal across Northwest Montana and a few inches of snow is possible in the high elevations of Glacier National Park.

The NWS sent out an advisory Wednesday morning. Widespread frost is possible across western Montana and temperatures are expected to fall in the mid to low 30s by Thursday morning, which could threaten gardens and sensitive outdoor plants, the NWS advised.

Conditions will become even more variable throughout the higher terrain where snow levels will be low enough for a few inches of snow to fall on the high peaks in Glacier National Park. Anyone with plans to hike or travel throughout the higher terrain of northwestern Montana is encouraged to take precautions to avoid hypothermia due to the prevalent raw, cool, wet conditions expected.
