BOZEMAN – A NW flow aloft and stalled cold front is producing wintry weather across Montana Saturday. Snow and wind is producing difficult to hazardous travel impacts for most local mountain passes but not all of our passes are seeing snow.
The biggest impacts have been over MacDonald pass, Boulder Hill, and Bozeman pass with steady snowfall and at times snow-covered and icy road conditions. The storm is not expected to reach Dillon so travel conditions should remain good Saturday afternoon and evening for Monida pass.
The National Weather Service has extended the WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY from NW Montana down to the SE through Monday afternoon.
More snow is likely, and areas highlighted in the graphic will continue to see wintry travel impacts with accumulating snow, icy roads, and localized wind gusts.
The National Weather Service did issue a WINTER STORM WARNING for Northern Jefferson county and Southern Lewis & Clark county through 6 pm Saturday.
A stalled front has been producing steady moderate to heavy wet snow that is causing hazardous travel impacts from Boulder Hill to Helena.
Another storm system will drop into Montana Sunday into Monday keeping the wintry travel impacts going for several more days.
