Tracking active weather to end the week

The National Weather Service has issued a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for SW Montana east of the divide through noon on Friday.

The surge in rainfall, Godwin said, is no longer in effect, as a La Nina weather pattern is causing less rain and colder temperatures.

Much of the rest of the Northeast, even as far north as southern ME, should see rain. The winter weather is expected to continue through the morning.

Snowfall will stop in southern IL between 6 and 9 A.M, but will continue until noon for west Kentucky.

It was the deep freeze during the last week of the month that really lowered the average temperature to levels far below normal.

"Things probably will improve some, you know with road crews out and that kind of thing, especially on the major highways".

On the southern side of the storm, winds gusted to 68 miles per hour in Midland, Texas, producing a dust storm and reducing visibility close to zero.
