Winter Storm Watch – Travel May Be Affected

I don’t think it’s going to happen in Bozeman.  Year two of getting watches and warnings and it seems to hit everyone but us.  But here it is…

Winter Storm Watch now in effect from Saturday afternoon through late Sunday night.

Light snow increase Saturday afternoon. Heavier snow and strong winds will develop Saturday night and continue through Sunday night.

Snow accumulations: snow accumulations of 10 to 20 inches are possible for all elevations in the watch area.

Winds and visibility: strongest winds are expected on Sunday with sustained winds up to 40 mph and gusts up to 55 mph.

Gusts up to 70 mph are possible over ridges and higher peaks. Heavy snow and strong winds will cause significant blowing and drifting snow with visibilities less than one half mile at times.

Impacts: roadways may become icy Saturday night as temperatures fall below freezing. By Sunday… widespread treacherous travel and mountain recreation conditions are anticipated.

Locations affected include: Targhee Pass… West Yellowstone…Raynolds Pass… Monida Pass.

Precautionary/preparedness actions…A Winter Storm Watch means there is a potential for significant snow… or ice accumulations that may impact travel. Continue to monitor the latest forecasts.
