"4-8" of snow is possible across Lincoln County, Flathead Valley and in the Seeley/Swan valleys. A Blizzard Warning means that snow and strong winds will combine to produce a blinding snow (near zero visibility), deep drifts, and life-threatening wind chill.

Friday's forecast calls for mostly sunny skies with a high of 42 and an overnight low of 21.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS.Winds gusting as high as 30 miles per hour will cause areas of blowing and drifting snow, especially on ridge tops and in open areas.

This swath of snow could be heavy, and there's potential for significant ice accumulation in areas where freezing rain is most persistent. Continue to monitor the latest forecasts.
