Just ahead of the final weekend before Christmas, and the official start of winter Thursday, road conditions may challenge your sleigh.

There is a Winter Storm Warning posted for the Potomac/Seeley Lake Region until 11:00 a.m. Wednesday. Also severe driving conditions are being reported on I-90 over Lookout Pass. Heavy snow could make travel difficult. Highway 200 Bonner to Greenough, Highway 83 Seeley Lake to Condon and I-90 East Missoula to Bearmouth are among the areas of concern. We are also expecting much colder temperatures to roll in this weekend.

A Winter Storm Warning for snow and blowing snow means severe winter weather conditions are expected. Please get as much advance road information as you can. And of course a flashlight and some food and water in the vehicle might be a good idea.

Stay safe, friends.
