Winter is finally beginning to ramp up. This new system that is entering the area is forecasted to dump up to 20 inches in my area if the NOAA is correct my prediction is for accumulations between 3-5 inches if the NWS history of predicting storms in my area is any indication. Temps behind the storm should drop a little as they usually do. Temps this AM were in single digits and in Cut bank they dropped to-18 this morning.

After the storm i will update with totals and specifics of the storm.

To my surprise we received about 8 inches of snow. Winds howled around 40mph for the most part of the storm. Drifts of up to 4ft have been created and a little more snow is falling today. It was all in all a pretty standard storm for the area. Hopefully from here on out till June winter continues.

Still very little Winter in the area although we are beginning to get on and off showers throughout the week. resulting in minor accumulations that disappear by days end. Hopefully Spring arrives sooner than most years and warmer weather will create nice warm days for fishing.

Just an update on the snow drought here in the northern rockies. we still only have an inch or 2 of snow on the ground. under which lays a thick covering of ice. Daily highs are in the mid 30's and nightly lows drop into the teens. Winds have been fairly low as well.

The storm that has entered the area has soaked the region in rain...Yes rain. It is very rare to be seeing rain and mid 40's at Early morning in February. With March just around the corner our cold weather chances should begin to dwindle. possibly leading to a very early spring.

This week 50's are in the forecast. it looks as if an early spring may be in order. The willows are already beginning to get the first yellow in them as a sign of sap flow.

The snow event that blanketed the area left around 12-17 inches overall. the Warm air is back and the snow is melting quickly. we have had strong winds over the last few days which has aided in the melt off. Streams are rising and ice on the lakes is getting darker. Small ponds have opened along with the return of blue birds and robins.

We recieved a few more inches of snowfall in the previous system that passed through the area. The weather has now turned warmer once again and grass is growing. The trees have began to leaf out and most summer bird species have returned.

Summer started out as a very dry and windy time for Montana but recently has changed for the better. The monsoonal season was delayed this year and has now began to catch up. Thunderstorms of decent strength have been scattered. A few days ago a strong downpour lasted 6 hours dumping 1.14 inches of rain.
Fires have been started in areas around the state by both people and lightning. In the SE part of the state a fire burned a little under 300,000acres over a few weeks, but has since been suppressed.
With September a little more than a month away snow will soon be back up on the discussion boards.
