Today turned out to be a very pleasant day. High reached into the mid 60's and a light breeze blew.
Tomorrow is another story. A storm will be entering the area that will drop 3-6 inches of snow over the area above 4,000ft, Which is nearly everywhere. the next 5 days are forecast for snow every day.
I will post again when this storm passes.

the snow did arrive but not as heavy as predicted. we recieved just a skiff. the winds came up and today we reached 42 degrees. not a hot one by anymeans.
memorial day is soon and yellowstones north entrance is closed. they recieved over 25ft of snow over the winter and they are still trying to open the road.

Well the snow has left the area down low. The mountains are still packed with it. The rivers and streams are busting there banks and reaching record levels every day. Most dams in the area are at capacity and moving 300% normal water flow. The cold wet spring left all the snow untouched, Then with a sudden surge of warmth and lots and lots of rain the snow pack has began to melt at never before seen rates. Here are some photos of the mountains by my place these were taken yesterday.

Wow....I'd had never thought there would still be that much snow cover still remaining, but then again I imagine those mountains are quite high with elevation?

Ya these mountains top out just under 11,000ft so not super high but high enough to keep the snow. now summer is here and it is a hot one. mid 80's every day with very low humidity. Average highs are in the low to mid 70's and flirting with 90 once in a while kinda gets ridiculous. the all time record high for this area is 95. hope this summer does not end up in smoke.
thunderstorms have not been a big thing this summer. we get a few to roll by a week but not every day like some years.

Currently
Temp:81
Barometer:29.98
Humidity:18%
Winds:light and variable

It depends year to year. some years we will see millions of acres burn or have a year like last year and only see 5-10 small fires burn 100,000 or so. only a few small fires so far by the end of this month i am expecting to see the forests light up with this heat.
Last 3 days we were above 90, very rare and the humidity has been hovering around 10%.

Currently
Temp:65
Humidity:21%
Wind:5-10

Well it has been a hot hot summer. almost every day is in the mid to upper 80's and humidity is down into the teens if not single digits every day. Our first taste of winter was on the vehicles windshields yesterday morning we dropped down to 30 degrees and frost was lightly coating the vehicles. with september just around the corner we could possibly see snow within 3 weeks. with the long cold spring i would suspect that a very hot long fall would be in store for us and we may not dive into winter till mid october.
The mountains still contain a good amount of snow in the North facing holes and valleys.

Fire season has began. A fire to the west called the saddle complex fire flared up today and large plumes of smoke are covering the area. As of 8pm local time inciweb has the fire at 1,000 acrea but since i am about 50miles from the fire and the smoke is as thick as it is i would bet it has grown.

Today an update on the saddle creek fire was posted and yesterday the 1,000+acre fire made a 17,000 acre run and now is active along 18,250 acres. it has jumped the Idaho/Montana border and it's heading my way. luckily it is still 25 miles away.
Here are some photos of the fire and smoke column

Man that is so cool knowing the potential for SNOW looms within a few weeks for you all, as out here in my neck of the woods ur looking at the end of November to primarily the 1st few weeks of December before the potential for Snow presents it self.

The fires have somewhat tapered off and have not had any huge flare ups. Today the high is around 60. and tonight a low of 29. so hopefully we get an early winter and hunting will be much better. Archery only opens this Saturday. and hopefully the bulls will be talking.

The leaves are beginning to change in the area. frost is beginning to become more frequent.
Wolves in the area have pushed all game to other areas.
This hot summer is slowly coming to an end.

Well cooler weather is on the way and with that a very small chance of snow thursday night.
This summer has been a very hot one and it is continuing far into the later months. With such a hot summer i would almost suspect a very cold winter is on the way.
