The National Weather Service is reporting that Missoula will receive another four to six inches of snow today, with possible freezing rain as the week ends.
Meteorologist Dan Zumpf told KGVO/KLYQ News about the arctic weather system moving into the area.
“We had some arctic air move from the east of the Continental Divide last night and it’s been creeping over, and now it's up against some subtropical moisture that’s come off the Pacific Ocean,” said Zumpf. “Where those two have mixed over western Montana, we’re seeing some snow really starting to pick up this morning, reducing visibility and making the roads a really tricky place to be.”
Zumpf said the weather conditions will be complicated by warming temperatures leading to freezing rain heading into Thursday evening.
He said Missoula can expect another five inches of snow on top of the five inches received overnight.
Several school districts canceled classes Thursday, including Alberton, Superior, St. Regis, Missoula International School, Woodman School, Missoula Catholic Schools, and Potomac schools.
Other schools were delayed for two hours, including Valley Christian, Dixon Elementary, Two Eagle River and Victor.

LOOK: Best Beers From Every State
To find the best beer in each state and Washington D.C., Stacker analyzed January 2020 data from BeerAdvocate
, a website that gathers user scores for beer in real-time. BeerAdvocate makes its determinations by compiling consumer ratings for all 50 states and Washington D.C. and applying a weighted rank to each. The weighted rank pulls the beer toward the list's average based on the number of ratings it has and aims to allow lesser-known beers to increase in rank. Only beers with at least 10 rankings to be considered; we took it a step further to only include beers with at least 100 user rankings in our gallery.
