BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) — The Latest on Montana Weather (all times local):
The Gallatin National Forest Avalanche Center has issued a backcountry avalanche warning for the mountains around Cooke City.
Heavy, wet snowfall overnight and strong winds are adding weight to a weak and unstable snowpack. A foot of snow has fallen near Cooke City since Sunday morning and another 8 to 10 inches was forecast on Monday.
Center officials say the avalanche danger is rated high on all slopes, meaning natural and human triggered avalanches are likely Monday.
