Snow showers fell overnight across parts of north-central and southwest Montana with additional snow showers affecting some areas through this afternoon. While additional snow today will be light, some locally slick roads are possible this morning, even in areas where precipitation was light due to the freezing of wet surfaces overnight.
Patchy fog will affect areas primarily east of I-15 across north-central Montana this morning. Visibility could be reduced to ½ mile or less at times.
Strong winds are forecast to develop along the Rocky Mountain Front and adjacent plains Saturday evening through Sunday afternoon. Those travelling with high profile vehicles should be alert for strong cross winds, and make sure any holiday decorations are secured.
