Winter storm watch for Kootenai/Cabinet Region
January 10, 2018
A winter storm watch has been issued by the Missoula Weather Service for heavy snow above 2,500 feet in the Kootenai/Cabinet Region from late tonight through Friday morning.

Snow accumulations of six to ten inches are likely, with some areas liable to over two feet of new snow, meaning travel will likely be very difficult to impossible in areas on Highway 2 from Libby to Kalispell, on Highway 37 from Libby to Eureka and on Highway 93 from Eureka to Whitefish.

In addition to slick, impassable roads, visibility is likely to be greatly reduced, and heavy snow could bring down trees and power lines, causing electrical outages throughout the area.
