The storm will be arriving in waves, stated the NWS forecast.

The first rains were experienced since Tuesday in low elevations in Washington, while the first fall of snow had already begun in the mountainous areas, and will continue to spread through Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, and North Dakota throughout the week, until Friday morning, October 27.

"Multiple waves of heavy snowfall will impact Montana & North Dakota tonight through Friday morning. More than 8 [inches] of snow is forecast for much of this area, with [1 to 2 feet] possible in higher terrain. Travel will become hazardous due to snow-covered or icy roads & poor visibility,” warned the National Weather Service.

As per the statements made by meteorologist Matt Ludwig, reported by NBC, central Montana will be bearing the brunt of the storm, so the accumulation of snow in that area will be greater.
