Hi, all! I am brand new to RoadTripAmerica, I lucked upon this site while looking for info on the typical weather in the Northern US. I am planning a trip from WA/OR to CT likely sometime in early March. I assume that the weather will still be pretty cold and snowy in the northern areas past Seattle, and figured on driving a bit south before heading east.
My question is: how bad (typically) will the weather be if I am traveling along the Montana/Wyoming border and through S. Dakota? Am I likely to get slammed with bad storms? Would it make more sense weather-wise to leave from Portland, being a bit more south, and swing through Idaho/Wyoming/Nebraska? I can shift the time-frame of the trip a bit later, but would really prefer not to. I don't have a specific route planned out yet (obviously!) and would love any ideas and suggestions people have! Thanks!
