A spring blizzard hit north-central Montana Sunday and winter conditions are expected to last throughout the day.

For farmers on the Fairfield Bench, the wind proved to almost be more than they could stand.

In the video above, Jake and Ashley McFarlin battle over 40 mph winds at their barn at 7 a.m. Sunday.

Despite only one to four inches of snow expected at lower elevations, high winds have created whiteout conditions from the Rocky Mountain Front to the Hi-Line.
