Montana Isn't the Only Place That's Getting a Lot of Snow

Montana got nailed with heavy snowfall overnight. Here in the banana belt of Montana, with the mildest weather in the state, we got about six inches of snow between yesterday and today.

We aren’t alone, by a long shot. This is a huge series of snowstorms that is moving east and south. It has already dropped a huge amount of snow in the Sierras of California and the Cascades of Oregon and Washington.

Here is a good indication of the snowfall we’ve been experiencing, except this is Oregon, not Montana.

      • Well, even though you didn’t send it, it came and we can’t send it back. But the first one literally did nothing. No snow, no rain no nothing. Got to 55 degrees outside! I was watching the model for the next one. Chicago is going to get blasted hard! Hopefully, the modified winter jet stream will continue the northern push of the storm.

        • Unfortunately, the bottom of the jetstream is so far south that it would almost need to move almost due north for it to spare the great lakes and northeast. That isn’t impossible, but it is highly unlikely. I’m thinking that a greater hope would be that it will move through rapidly, rather than being halted by a high-pressure system ahead of it. That has also happened in the past.

          • The last storm you sent stayed along the edge of the Great Lakes so we missed it.

            The problem will be the jet stream bringing the Canadian Clipper, that pushes cold air well past Atlanta and means we get snow!

    • People here have been praying for more snow. The mountains have been above average in snowfall through the winter, but it has been very mild here in the valleys. Things changed rapidly this month and we are getting a couple of month’s worth of snow in just the last week and a half. God has answered the prayers, but I’m suspecting that a few people are a bit sorry that they prayed for snow now. lol
