The cold air doesn't stop at the border, of course. Snow was falling in higher elevations in northern Montana today and Winter storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories are in effect until midday Thursday for areas on the east side of the Rockies as far south as northeastern Wyoming. Some snow also dusted the higher elevations in northern Colorado today.

As this cold air continues to spill south and east it will usher in an extended period of cooler than normal weather for the eastern two thirds of the country.
