Another shot of cold for Montana

Glacier National Park from the Apgar Lookout Wednesday morning, where temps were already below zero(MISSOULA)- After several inches of new snow fell across the region Tuesday, it's back to cold, with some sub-zero readings for Montana. 

A vigorous Pacific system, combined with colder Arctic air east of Divide brought heavy snow to Western and Southwestern Montana again this week. Some valleys, like the Bitterroot, received an additional 8-10" of snow, coming on top of the already significant snow that's been on the ground since shortly after Thanksgiving. 

Some of the mountain locations, especially in the southwest, received another 2-3 feet of snow, once more bringing concerns of avalanches. 

However, the main weather feature the next couple of days will be cold, complicated by wind. Standing air temps are expected to drop below zero in many areas, and feel much colder in some spots when combined with wind chill. 

Another shot of snow is expected Friday before conditions moderate with a mix of snow and rain for the weekend.
