Winter Weather Advisories and Warnings in place for the weekend

Winter storm to impact US 12 travel, eastern portion of Idaho County

"Generally, 1" to 3" of snow will be possible by early Saturday morning.

Total snow accumulations within and near the advisory area are expected to run between two and four inches.

Watch for areas of blowing & drifting snow from Belgrade to Three Forks and near Norris. Drivers may experience slippery road conditions and reduced visibility while traveling at times. The advisory will begin today at 2 p.m. EST and is scheduled to expire by 4 a.m. EST Saturday. The heavier amounts will likely be focused on the USA 30 and Interstate 80 corridors, where snowfall rates of an inch or more per hour will lead to rapid accumulation and very poor visibility for the evening commute.

On the back side of the system, it's likely we'll see ocean-effect snow showers on the Outer Cape and Islands, so we could see locally higher amounts under some of these ocean-enhanced snow bands. This is all upstream moisture will should produce steady snowfall all day Friday, Friday night and into most of Saturday.

Above you can see a stream of subtropical moisture is following the jet stream right into the Pacific NW and rolling over into Montana.
