Montana Road Conditions + Weather Update (Thu Nov 2)

Posted: Updated:

Hazardous driving conditions are reported across many parts of Montana due to snow, ice, and wet roads.

Dozens of crashes and slide-offs have been reported across the state.

Montana isn't finished with the wintry weather for this week. The STORMTracker Weather Team is already tracking another round of snow on the way and it's expected to bring more significant snow to some areas heading into the weekend.

As low pressure develops along the West Coast and moves into the Northern Rockies, widespread snow will begin to fall across Montana.

The snow is expected to begin late Thursday and continue off and on through Saturday. This prolonged snow event will result in some hefty snow totals for some parts of the state.

Meteorologist Mike Rawlins is calling for an additional 1-2 feet of snow for the mountains during this period, with an additional 3-8" of snow for lower elevations. Anyone planning to hit the roads through Saturday should be prepared for winter driving conditions, especially in the mountains.

The Montana Department of Transportation recently launched a project to provide people with online photos from cameras mounted on 10 snowplows at various locations across the state. The "plow-cam" images are available on the traveler information map website when a camera-configured plow is active on Montana highways. The images are taken approximately every half mile and are available for viewing for between 30-45 minutes.
