A Winter Storm Warning has been issued for Park, Wheatland, Golden Valley, Musselshell, Sweet Grass, Stillwater, and Carbon Counties. A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for Yellowstone, Bighorn, and Treasure Counties in Montana, and Sheridan County in Wyoming.

Heavy snow will spread into southeastern Montana late Friday night. Snow is expected to continue through the day Saturday across much of south central and southeastern Montana. Expect difficult travel conditions due to the snow, gusty winds, and some blowing snow. Along with the snowfall will come much colder temperatures, and potentially dangerous wind chills.
