As of Sunday afternoon, the fire burning south of Browning in northern Montana (Spotted Eagle Fire - Family Peak Complex Wildfire) has grown significantly and is not yet contained in any measurable amount. We've got the latest from the Lewis & Clark National Forest:
A short but potent storm is headed for the Bozeman area. 2 to 4 inches of snow are expected in the valley, while 4 to 8 inches of snow could land up in the local mountains. The good news is it will push out of here by Wednesday.
The weather has always been a mystery for me. I hope I'm not the only one. Take today for example. We have a Winter Storm Warning for the Gallatin Valley, yet when you look at the forecast it says rain and snow are expected.
Looks like snow will continue to fall throughout the weekend. And don't be fooled if we get some peaks of sunshine, as another 1-3 inches of snow is expected on Sunday. A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect for the Bozeman area until midnight MST Monday night.
The Gallatin River experienced an ice jam earlier this week and officials are saying that with more cold temps and snow expected for the area, it could happen again. In fact the National Weather Service has issued a Flood Advisory for ice jam flooding on the Gallatin River between Big Sky and Gallatin Gateway.
We do have a storm system moving through the Bozeman area and it is causing some problems on I-90. Montana Highway Patrol is reporting a jackknifed semi and some other semis that have spun out on the east side of Homestake Pass on I-90.
