Winter Storm Warning Still In Effect
The National Weather Service in Billings has a Winter Storm Warning in effect until tomorrow (02/22) at 6 a.m. Temperatures will continue to be below freezing all week, and the Billings Police Department has also set their slick streets policy into effect. If you get into a minor accident due to the roads, do not call the police. Instead, pull over out of the way of traffic and exchange information.
It's important to make sure you leave extra time for commuting in this weather and always remember to drive slower and safer in the snow. It's not worth it to drive faster and risk crashing here folks. Be safe out there.
