Snow forecast

Significant snow expected at all elevations, starting Thursday and ending Saturday. 

This winter storm will impact a large portion of North Central, Central, and Southwest Montana, especially along Interstate 90. Traveling will be difficult to nearly impossible is some areas.

Breezy conditions will cause blowing and drifting snow and lead to very cold wind chill temperatures at times, adding to the impacts.

STORMTracker meteorologist Michelle Morgan says that the heaviest snow will fall Friday morning through Saturday morning, with snowfall rates near 1-2" per hour.

The mountains and passes are expected to receive between 1-3 feet of snow, creating dangerous travel conditions.
