Heavy Snow and Frigid Temperatures Hit Montana

Heavy snow and strong winds affected roadways in southwestern Montana on Monday, November 7, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

The NWS told drivers to “exercise caution while traveling” as “an area of moderate to heavy snow” hit the Missoula area.
