An area of low pressure continues to bring widespread snow to the state of Montana.

Snow will continue to become less widespread over the next few hours and the bulk of accumulating snow will be over by midnight.

Another round of snow develops early Monday morning through early Monday afternoon, which could bring in additional light accumulation to central Montana.

Winter Weather Advisories and Winter Storm Warnings remain in effect through 11 PM Sunday.

Most areas could see an additional 2-4 inches and can continue to expect slippery road conditions with low visibilities at times due to the combination of falling, blowing and drifting snow.

Besides snow the other big story is how cold it is.

Wind Chill Advisories and Wind Chill Warnings will be in effect for many areas (see video) due to dangerously cold wind chills expected.

Wind chill temperatures in these areas could drop between -30 and -55 degrees.

Frostbite, hypothermia or even death could occur if precautions aren’t taken.

Areas under a Wind Chill Warning: frostbite can occur to exposed skin in less than 10 minutes.

Areas under a Wind Chill Advisory: frostbite can occur to exposed skin in less than 30 minutes.

Temperatures will remain very cold through the start of the work week with some areas not even making it above zero until Wednesday.
