January 2, 2019
The National Weather Service, Missoula, has issued a winter weather advisory for mixed precipitation across the Kootenai/Cabinet region of northwest Montana, in effect from 5 p.m. Thursday to 11 a.m. Friday.

Snow accumulations of one to three inches at higher elevations, with up to four inches possible in the Yaak, are expected, while low-lying areas will see a freezing rain expected to glaze roadways, making travel difficult.

Highways affected include Bull Lake Road, Highway 2 from Libby to Kalispell, Highway 37 from Libby to Eureka and Highway 93 from Eureka to Whitefish.

A winter weather advisory means that periods of snow, sleet or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Expect slippery roads and limited visibility, and use caution while driving.
