Across Montana it's "Winter Weather Awareness Week," the time of the year to start preparing for winter weather conditions including hazardous travel.  National Weather Service offices throughout the state are providing information on the different types of winter weather we have in Montana and also  providing safety information related to each type, for the rest of the week.  Warning Coordination Meteorologist in Missoula, Marty Whitmoore says the public needs to be prepared to deal with the winter season.

Whitmoore says they are predicting a La Nina winter… which means more snow than usual.
