Additional snow accumulations of 3 to 6 inches across Judith Basin County, and 6 to 12 inches across Cascade County according to the most recent National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration notification (Sunday morning – 9:15 AM MDT).
Extreme impacts will continue. Some tree damage will still be possible due to the heavy, wet snow falling onto trees with foliage. Additional power outages are possible. Agricultural interests; outdoor recreational interests, including camping and hunting activities; and travel will also continue to be negatively impacted.
The next wave of moderate to heavy snow will lift north across the region through the mid-morning hours and into the early afternoon on Sunday. Snowfall rates could approach 1 to 2 inches per hour at times, which would significantly reduce visibilities.
It’s important to understand that the sudden drop in temps and the amounts of snow involved with this storm may catch some folks unawares, so it might be best to error on the side of caution and make like it’s February – Don’t drive unless you absolutely have to, especially in areas north of Great Falls where the snow and the wind are more severe.
