HELENA, Mont. (AP) — The first major snowstorm of the season is expected to hit the northern Cascades and Rockies and North Dakota this week, sending residents searching for their winter coats and facing much different driving conditions after a warm fall in many places. The National Weather Service is warning of hazardous travel on snowy mountain passes and ice on some highways when snow initially melts and then freezes as road temperatures drop. The worst of the storm is expected to hit central Montana late Tuesday and early Wednesday. Temperatures rose into the low 80s in Helena and Great Falls late last week, and the storm could bring 8 inches of snow to those areas this week.
