See more of the story Blizzard conditions will be possible across parts of Montana on Wednesday, as a storm system brings a third consecutive day of wintry weather. Snowfall has already accumulated 2-3 feet in the higher elevations, with snow drifts up to 6 feet deep. An additional 3-6 inches of snow will blanket much of northern and western Montana, with even higher amounts likely in the higher elevations near Great Falls.

Travel will remain very difficult, if not impossible, across parts of the state on Wednesday. Strong gusty winds will cause drifting snow to continue, and blowing snow can reduce visibilities to near zero at times. In addition to the snow and wind, unseasonably cold air will cause record low temperatures on Wednesday night, with temperatures falling to the upper teens and low 20s.

Conditions will slowly improve Wednesday night into Thursday, as the storm system moves away from the area.
