First Winter Storm Breaks Snowfall Record

Gas prices have been falling along Highway 2 in Glasgow and now so has the snow. The plows are out.

Winter advisory warnings and watches went out for Northeast Montana over the past weekend – and they proved to be correct.

The National Weather Service in Glasgow forecast accumulations in Valley County ranging from 4 to 6 inches of snow. That prediction came pretty close to what was reported as the snow finally stopped falling Monday morning.

NWS Glasgow reported just over 6 inches of snowfall Monday, breaking a record set in 1940 for Glasgow. The previous daily record of 4.6 inches on Nov. 9 was surpassed by about an inch and a half.

The snowstorm passed, but the cold air followed, as winds and low temps brought down the thermostat below zero Tuesday.

The cold weather is expected to stay a while. While no heavy moisture or storms are predicted, you can probably expect the low temps to stick below zero until the weekend arrives.

The highest temperature in the forecast for the next week is 25 on Sunday.
