With over a foot more of new snow expected to fall in many (high elevation) places across Montana, flood warnings should be taken very seriously.

Total snow accumulations of 4 to 11 inches in the Snowy and Judith Mountains, snow accumulations between 1 and 2 feet and winds gusting as high as 35 mph for the Absaroka/Beartooth Mountains,
