Winter Storm Watch issued for NYC this weekend

The National Weather Service is predicting a major winter storm with heavy snow and strong winds to hammer northwest Montana, which will also affect the Missoula area.

Heavy snow is possible with snow accumulations of four to seven inches.

Gusts as high as 22 miles per hour are expected, with steady winds up to 15 miles per hour from the north. PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS. A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties. The temperatures will increase starting next week and rain is expected Monday, which would help melt the remaining snow.

The snow won't last long, as temperatures for Sunday, February 18 are expected to rise to about 50 degrees. The low will be about 16 degrees with a 70 percent chance for snow and northwesterly winds up to about 17 miles per hour. Low visibility and hard travel conditions are possible during that time.
