...FREEZING DRIZZLE WILL AFFECT FALLON COUNTY...



Freezing drizzle has been reported in Baker this evening, and will 

continue in Fallon County through 9 to 10 PM MST tonight. The 

freezing drizzle will leave a glaze of ice on surfaces, causing 

roads and sidewalks to become slippery.



Locations impacted include...

Baker, Plevna, Webster, Ollie, Westmore and Willard. 



The freezing drizzle will quickly coat roadways with a thin layer of 

ice that may be undetectable. Please use extreme caution, especially 

on bridges, overpasses and around curves. Slow down, allow plenty of 

stopping distance, and avoid braking suddenly.

...Locally intense snow bands, gusty winds, and falling 

temperatures will impact the Rocky Mountain Front and portions of 

North-Central Montana through this evening...



Moderate to locally intense snow bands associated with an Arctic 

boundary are expected to move from north to south and impact 

locations along the Rocky Mountain Front and portions of North- 

central Montana through late this evening. One to two inch per 

hour snow rates can be expected with the heavier bands, causing 

roads to become icy and or snow packed. In addition to that, gusty

winds in excess of 25 mph at times may contribute to reducing 

visibility to as low as a quarter mile or less at times.



Travelers should be prepared for highly variable, and at times 

hazardous, road conditions including visibility reductions down to

a quarter mile and snow packed, slippery roads. Note that Winter 

Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories are in effect through

Saturday for most of these locations. Use extreme caution and 

slow down if you must travel.
