Statement as of 2:20 PM MDT on October 31, 2014

Expires 1:00 AM EST on November 03, 2014


... Winter Storm Watch remains in effect from Saturday evening
through Sunday evening...

A Winter Storm Watch remains in effect from Saturday evening
through Sunday evening.

* Timing and main impact: a strong Fall storm system will affect
much of north-central and southwest Montana with periods of
rain and snow... heavy at times... Saturday evening through
Sunday evening. Rain falling at lower elevations Saturday
night is likely to change to snow at all elevations early
Sunday morning. The timing of this change from rain to snow
will determine lower elevation snow accumulation.

* Snow accumulations: mountain areas above 5500 feet have the
potential for 5 to 10 inches of storm total snowfall... with
isolated amounts over one foot. Locations below 5500 feet
could have 1 to 4 inches of snow... depending on the timing
at which rain changes to snow. Snowfall amounts greater than
4 inches could occur over portions of the north-Central
Plains if rain changes to snow earlier Saturday night.

* Winds and visibility: north winds of 10 to 20 mph are
possible at lower elevations... while 20 to 30 mph winds are
possible in the mountains. Heavy wet snow could reduce
visibility to less than one-half mile at times.

* Other impacts: travel may become difficult while snow
accumulates over area passes. Bridges may become snow covered
and icy at all elevations. Heavy wet snow could cause isolated
power outages. Livestock may be at risk of exposure to
hypothermia.

* Locations affected include: Fairfield... Choteau... Chester...
White Sulphur Springs... Battle Ridge Pass... Bozeman...
Bozeman Pass... Targhee Pass... West Yellowstone... Stanford...
