The National Weather Service has issued a Blizzard Warning for the Northern Rocky Mountain Front through Tuesday, in anticipation of whiteout conditions that will make driving nearly impossible.

Elsewhere, Winter Weather Advisories are in effect for the adjacent plains, where areas of blowing snow could reduce visibility at times, making it difficult to drive.

STORMTracker meteorologist Mike Rawlins says he expects wind gusts of 30-50 mph through Tuesday evening.

Those strong winds are expected to pick up snow on the ground, creating a "ground blizzard" in this area.
