The winter storm that has been hitting Northwest Montana has prompted state transportation officials to urge caution for those heading out on the roads on Monday morning.

The Montana Department of Transportation issued a warning of severe driving conditions early Monday morning for a section of U.S. Highway 2 in Flathead County. Included in the warning is the West Glacier area.

Additionally, MDT was reporting severe driving conditions on Montana Secondary Highway 206 between Montana Highway 35 and US Highway 2.

Snow and ice were also being reported on Montana Highway 83 in the Swan Valley.

MDT lifted the severe driving conditions warning shortly after 6:30 a.m. on Monday but snowcovered roads with blowing and drifting snow was still being reported is some parts on Northwest Montana.
