Hey fellow ICE BIKERS! Our friends at the National Weather Service have the following to say:
A SIGNIFICANT WINTER STORM WILL CONTINUE TO IMPACT EASTERN PORTIONS
OF CENTRAL MONTANA WITH WIDESPREAD SNOW AND BLOWING SNOW. BY SATURDAY AFTERNOON 12 TO 24 INCHES OF TOTAL SNOW ACCUMULATION WILL BE POSSIBLE ACROSS THE PLAINS OF CENTRAL MONTANA...WITH TWO TO THREE FEET OF SNOW IN THE MOUNTAINS. NORTHWEST WINDS OF 20 TO 30 MPH WITH GUSTS TO 40 MPH WILL CAUSE VISIBILITIES TO BE REDUCED TO LESS THAN A MILE WITH LOCAL WHITE-OUT CONDITIONS.
This is the first snow since before Thanksgiving here in the high plains of Central Montana and it is most welcome!
As I type this the conditions outside are quite harsh. The winds predicted with this storm have materialized and are really howling!
We'll see how bad the drifts are later today. If the snow accumulations follow as predicted, it could make for some interesting riding.
NAISME & mtessmer, its headed your way!
