5 Ways to Spend a Wicked Weather Weekend in Montana
Springtime weather in Montana can be very unpredictable. However, Winter Storm Warnings are fairly common during the spring.
A Winter Storm Warning is in effect until 12:00 p.m. Saturday, April 23 for Gallatin and Madison County. Snow accumulations between 6 and 12 inches are expected over mountain passes and up to 2 feet of snow is predicted for higher elevations. Valleys below 5,500 feet will only get around 2 inches of snow. The heaviest snow amounts are primarily expected at elevations above 5,500 feet.
Snowstorms can definitely put a damper on plans, especially when they happen during the weekend. With all of the snow expected in the mountains, conditions in the area could get dangerous. If you had plans to go hiking this weekend, you might want to think of something else to do. Hiking on wet trails can do a lot of damage to not only the trails but the surrounding ecosystem as well.
Travelling on highways and interstates in Montana is expected to be difficult, especially over mountain passes. Don't let a little snow ruin your weekend fun. There are a lot of fun things that you can do indoors and outdoors as well.
