Weather conditions will continue to improve this weekend, but an increase in wind will cause blowing and drifting snow for some.
Areas in North Central Montana and along the Rocky Mountain front are expected to experience the strongest wind.
Wind gusts in upwards of 60 mph are possible in this region.
The ground blizzard conditions will cause limited visibility and poor travel.
A Blizzard warning has been issued for Glacier and Pondera Counties through Tuesday morning.
The windy but warmer weather will last through the first portion of this next week.
We'll see a slight dip in temperatures on Thursday as high pressure breaks down slightly.
Temperatures are expected to remain in the low 40s through next weekend.

posted on Facebook on Saturday to warn people about the weather, and added some humor:
- Okay...Who remembers that Bill Murray movie Groundhog Day? He wakes up and relives the same day over and over again. That’s what Mother Nature is doing to the good people of Glacier County. We have another blizzard coming in. This one has 60 MPH winds with it. Talk about a kick right to the face eh? It goes without saying...stock up on groceries. Get some firewood. Maybe a backlog of new memes you haven’t read yet? It’s gonna be a long one. And, for the love of god....STAY OFF THE DAMN ROADS DURING THE BLIZZARD!!!! PLEASE!!
We will keep you updated on weather conditions.
