Highway driving will not be fun in Montana on Friday in places like Butte, Anaconda, Deer Lodge, Polson, Kalispell, Whitefish, Browning, Heart Butte, Shelby, Choteau and much of northeast Montana. Winds of 40 to 50 MPH will not be uncommon.
As much as a pain traveling may become, Montana getting hammered with mountain snow for the next few days is a really great thing. The old cliché about "we need the moisture" is getting more true and less casual by the day.
Another round of very cold temps, snow and gusty wind is invading Montana through Wednesday morning. The valleys are only supposed to get a few inches of snow out of the deal, but travel may still become sketchy during this advisory.
