Fall. Winter. Fall. Winter. 'Tis the dance Montana generally does through the month of October. High elevations in southwest Montana could see up to 10 inches of fresh snow by Tuesday morning...so I guess that means we're back to winter!
We might have quite a mess on our hands...a Winter Storm Warning (that's the big deal one), is in effect for Gallatin and Madison Counties until Noon on Tuesday. Several inches of snow is expected in the valleys with up to 18" of snow to accumulate in the mountains.
Doug Chabot of the Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center gives you the latest avalanche conditions every morning on The MOOSE. This video was shot today as he tests snow stability in the Southern Madison Range.
