...Blowing snow and reduced visibility in open areas tonight...

Strong west winds gusting between 30 and 40 mph have resulted in
significant blowing and drifting of the snow...especially in open
areas. Expect reduced visibility...sometimes below one quarter of
a mile. Isolated areas of near white-out conditions are possible
in the known windier spots.

Those traveling tonight should allow a few extra travel minutes
and be prepared for very poor visibility at times.

Some locations to be affected include...portions of Interstate 15
from the city of Cascade to Sweet Grass...and Highway 200 from
Simms to Lewistown.
