Blowing/drifting snow expected today, more snow Wednesday-Thursday

Posted: Feb 13, 2018 9:43 AM Updated:

Wind chill effects are diminishing Tuesday morning as temperatures begin to rise with the arrival of the Chinook winds.

Wind chill alerts will end at 10 a.m. and many areas will see around-freezing or above-freezing temperatures.

Blowing and drifting snow is still a concern especially along the Rocky Mountain Front with reduced visibilities and extremely hazardous driving conditions.

Blizzard Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories have been put into effect for Tuesday.

Blowing and drifting snow can lead to whiteout or near whiteout conditions. Many roads have been closed in the Browning area and it is encouraged that if travel can be avoided, please do so. Please stay updated on road conditions before heading out. 

Blowing and drifting snow is expected to end Tuesday evening as temperatures continue to rise through Wednesday morning.

An Arctic front will move through the area late Wednesday morning through Thursday bringing colder air and more snow. This winter event does not look to have high accumulations but will still cause slower commutes.

The STORMTracker Weather Team will keep you updated on blowing and drifting snow throughout the day as well as any new snow that's on the way.
