Some areas along and east of the Rocky Mountain Front have already received more than a foot of snow as of noon on Saturday.

The City of Choteau said on Saturday morning that there are already several downed power lines and downed trees which is creating a very dangerous situation; they urge people to stay home if at all possible.

Disaster and Emergency Services in Browning at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday recommended emergency travel only for the Blackfeet Reservation. The Teton County Sheriff posted on Facebook: "EMERGENCY TRAVEL ONLY. Stay home and do not drive unless an emergency."

There have been several reported power outages across the area, affecting Simms, Sun Prairie, and parts of Great Falls.

A winter storm warning is in effect until Monday morning for portions of north central Montana, the National Weather Service said.
