A BLIZZARD WARNING is in effect off the Rocky Mountain Front with ground blizzard conditions and the possibility of impossible travel.  A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY for blowing and drifting snow is in effect from Cut Bank to Great Falls down to Helena.  A WIND CHILL ADVISORY is in effect for the Hi-Line through tonight into Tuesday.  Brutal winter weather continues to blast Big Sky Country.  Lows tonight will dip well below 0 again, but west wind will be picking up off the Rocky Mountain Front which will blow snow around but also warm temperatures slowly through the night.  Tuesday will be a bluebird day but strong west winds will create dangerous travel conditions.  Highs will warm into the 30s and 40s with wind between 30-50mph.  Blowing and drifting snow will be a major problem.  Wednesday, a cold front will move through the state ending the ferocious wind, but falling temperatures and increasing snow are likely throughout the state.  Another arctic airmass will move in with some spots in the state dropping well below zero.  Snow will taper off through Thursday morning, but another storm will hit this weekend.  Friday will be another windy day with blowing snow.  Saturday will be a little warmer but equally as windy.  Snow will break out in the mountains, with a mix of rain and snow in the lower elevations.  Yet another cold front will bring falling temperatures and widespread snow to the state Saturday night and Sunday.  This wintry blast is relentless and should continue into next week.

Be safe.
