Whoa. Woke up to 2 degrees; wind chill -12! And I guess my post last night was somewhat prophetic: in addition to NE Montana, Cascade County is now under a blizzard warning,” too. I think it’s the first one in GF since I’ve lived here. Went outside to start my car, but – another first – I couldn’t even open the door! And there’s a drift of about two feet of snow in the driveway.

… Blizzard Warning remains in effect until 11 am MST this morning…
… Winter Storm Warning now in effect from 11 am this morning to 11 PM MST this evening…

Strong north to northwest winds of 30 to 45 mph are creating blizzard conditions with visibilities less than 0ne quarter of a mile. The strong winds are expected to continue through the morning hours before diminishing. Total snow accumulations through this evening will range from 7 to 10 inches on the plains
and valleys with up to 18 inches in the mountains. In addition…the gusty winds will combine with falling temperatures to produce dangerously low wind chill values. Very cold air will continue to filter into the region with temperatures near 20 below zero Sunday morning and 30 below zero by Monday morning.
