The southern region of Gallatin County along the Montana/Idaho border is included in this weekend's Winter Weather Advisory. Mountain passes will experience hazardous travel conditions with up to 12" of snow possible.
The HIGHEST elevations could see up to a foot of fresh snow this weekend with a Winter Weather Advisory lasting from Friday evening through Sunday afternoon. Areas near the Montana/Idaho border should be the most affected. Gusty winds will play a factor in this front as well.
This weather front coming through Montana is causing dangerous wind chills and treacherous driving conditions. Extreme caution should be used if traveling in southwest Montana for the next couple of days.
Several inches of in-town snow, gusty winds and much colder temperatures are in the forecast for the Bozeman area. Travel could be extremely hazardous at times with blowing and drifting snow along with low visibility.
