HELENA, Mont. (AP) - The abrupt blast of winter that hit Montana over the weekend will stick around for several days in the form of lower-than-average temperatures and bitter cold wind chill readings.

The National Weather Service has issued a wind chill warning for a swath of western Montana, from West Glacier south through Kalispell, Polson, Missoula and Hamilton and including Anaconda and Butte. The warning forecasts bitter cold temperatures combined with wind to create wins chills of 10 to 20 below for Tuesday and 15 to 35 below for Wednesday. The cold is a threat to livestock, pet and people outside without proper protection.

Much of the rest of the state is under a wind chill advisory, with possible wind chills as low as minus 20 to minus 35 degrees from midnight Monday through noon on Tuesday.

The weather service has issued a winter storm warning for an area east of Bozeman to Red Lodge. It anticipates some snow and wind chill values of as much as 35 below.
