Another round of primarily light snow is expected to fall from the northern Rockies to areas near the U.S.-Canadian border from northeast Montana to northern Minnesota Thursday into Friday.
It is too early to say how much snow and exactly where the heaviest snow will be at this time but their is potential for potent storm system expected this weekend into early next week.
Heavy snow could fall on the northern and central Rockies, from Montana and Idaho to Utah and Colorado.
This winter storm may be accompanied by strong winds, which would reduce visibility and raise the potential for tree damage and power outages from the combined stress of heavy, wet snow and strong winds.
