...WINTER STORM WATCH IN EFFECT FROM SATURDAY EVENING THROUGH
SUNDAY EVENING...

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN GREAT FALLS HAS ISSUED A WINTER
STORM WATCH...WHICH IS IN EFFECT FROM SATURDAY EVENING THROUGH
SUNDAY EVENING.

* TIMING AND MAIN IMPACT: A STRONG FALL STORM SYSTEM WILL AFFECT
MUCH OF NORTH-CENTRAL AND SOUTHWEST MONTANA WITH PERIODS OF RAIN
AND SNOW...HEAVY AT TIMES...SATURDAY EVENING THROUGH SUNDAY
EVENING. RAIN FALLING AT LOWER ELEVATIONS SATURDAY NIGHT IS
LIKELY TO CHANGE TO SNOW AT ALL ELEVATIONS EARLY SUNDAY MORNING.

POTENTIAL FOR 5 TO 10 INCHES OF STORM TOTAL SNOWFALL...WITH
ISOLATED AMOUNTS OVER ONE FOOT. LOCATIONS BELOW 5500 FEET COULD
HAVE 1 TO 4 INCHES OF SNOW...DEPENDING ON THE TIMING AT WHICH
RAIN CHANGES TO SNOW. SNOWFALL AMOUNTS GREATER THAN 4 INCHES
COULD OCCUR OVER PORTIONS OF THE NORTH-CENTRAL PLAINS IF RAIN
CHANGES TO SNOW EARLIER SATURDAY NIGHT.

* WINDS AND VISIBILITY: NORTH WINDS OF 10 TO 20 MPH ARE POSSIBLE
AT LOWER ELEVATIONS...WHILE 20 TO 30 MPH WINDS ARE POSSIBLE IN
THE MOUNTAINS. HEAVY WET SNOW COULD REDUCE VISIBILITY TO LESS
THAN ONE-HALF MILE AT TIMES.

* OTHER IMPACTS: TRAVEL MAY BECOME DIFFICULT WHILE SNOW ACCUMULATES OVER
AREA PASSES. BRIDGES MAY BECOME SNOW COVERED AND ICY AT ALL
ELEVATIONS. HEAVY WET SNOW COULD CAUSE ISOLATED POWER OUTAGES.
YOUNG LIVESTOCK MAY BE AT RISK OF EXPOSURE TO HYPOTHERMIA.
