Get ready for a slow commute and fresh round of shoveling, especially in southern Gallatin and Madison Counties. Lots of mountain snow and very gusty winds are possible in the higher elevations with this storm.
Montana is a winter wonderland playground, but that playground comes with avalanche dangers. Thankfully, we are home to one of the best Avalanche Centers in the country with the best people, info and resources within the Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center.
With setup for such an incredibly busy weekend at hand, a Wind Chill Advisory for the Bozeman area and much of SW Montana is not terribly welcome. Wind chill of -25 are certainly possible overnight Thursday.
