A BLIZZARD WARNING is in effect for the northern Rocky Mountain Front this morning.  High winds, blowing snow, and snow-covered roads will make travel hazardous and even dangerous at times.  A HIGH WIND WARNING is in effect for north-central Montana all of today due to powerful winds out of the west.  Heavy snow is falling west of the Continental Divide, but east of the Divide will be much drier due to westerly flow.  The main concern for locations east of the Rocky Mountains is the extremely high sustained winds and wind gusts.  The snow chances will decrease significantly this afternoon while winds continue to howl.  Thursday and Friday will be much drier for Montana, but winds will continue in north-central Montana.

Have a great day!
