We had quite a wintry weekend and this morning, and it’s still snowing across central Montana. Road conditions were less than ideal this morning, and roads will likely still be slippery for the evening commute.
A WINTER STORM WARNING is in effect in many counties in central Montana, including the Helena and Great Falls areas. Gusty winds and more snowfall mean roads are going to be dangerous for the rest of the day. Counties just outside of this area are under a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY until late tonight. These areas will continue to get more snow, and travel will be difficult. A WIND CHILL ADVISORY is in effect until tomorrow morning for counties in northeastern Montana. Those areas will see wind chills as low as 30 degrees below zero. And finally, an AVALANCHE WARNING is in effect for the backcountry in the Gallatin National Forest, and the Bitterroot, Swan, Mission, and Rattlesnake ranges west of the Divide.
Be careful out there today!
