It's hard to believe but the snow season is upon us.

Snow is already falling in the mountains and on mountain passes around western Montana.

According to Montana Department of Transportation most mountain passes are reporting snow-covered and icy roadways.

Areas with snow include, Rogers Pass near Lincoln, MacDonald pass near Helena, Homestake Pass in Butte and Lost Trail Pass.

The Going to the Sun Road is also experiencing snow and is now closed for the season, in the Logan Pass area.

Road conditions around western Montana are ever-changing right now.

Roads going toward Kalispell are dry.

Heading down to Missoula and Helena roads are wet.

Also heading down to the mining city, Butte roads seem to be slushy and wet.

This is the time of year, you need to allow extra time to get to your destination, keep windows, mirrors and lights clean of snow and slow down.
