Starting 2 hours late with buses running also running 2 hours late include:

Drummond

Please do not send your kids early, there is not enough supervision at the schools as teachers and staff are also attempting to get through this snow.

NO SCHOOL for St. Ignatius, Charlo, Arlee and Stevensville.  LUCKY!!

With today being an 'early out' day, wouldn't it just make sense to declare it a snow day for all?  Even adults.  We could all stay home and build snow ladies.  Oh well, maybe tomorrow.

Missoula Police are urging residents who live on side streets and secondary roads to not attempt to drive unless you have 4 wheel drive or tire chains.  Corporal Cami Fiscus says those with 2 wheel drive will not be able to drive through the heavy snow until your street has been plowed.

Kevin Hauge from the MDT reports Evaro Hill is snow packed and icy and that you can dial 511 for further road reports.  Great info, thanks Kevin!

Chains are now required for all towing units on Lookout Pass due to heavy snowfall and snow packed and icy road conditions.

A winter storm warning is in effect for Western Montana, expect up to 6 more inches of snow over the next 24 hours.  High of 33 today for Missoula, tomorrow calls for snow & rain with a high around 40.

This page will be updated as we receive more info.
