6″ Possible for Little Belt Mountains by Noon Tuesday
Several counties will get a good dose of snow with a Winter Weather Advisory before several days of 'warm' and sunny weather later in the week. Some counties may get 65 MPH wind gusts.
The following weather details are for several counties, with varying amounts of snow and different top wind gusts. Travel could be difficult with blowing and drifting snow, even if the storm bursts don't last very long.
Advisories cover several counties into Tuesday and include towns such as White Sulphur Springs, Helena, Great Falls, Neihart, Stanford, Choteau and many others in between.
Although poor weather isn't supposed to last very long, bursts of snow and wind could be quite intense at times. Make sure your vehicle is prepared for bad weather.
Also, some Advisories last longer than others. Some are active until 10am on Tuesday and others are in effect until Noon on Tuesday.
Use caution in rural areas as cell service can be spotty if you need help.
