Todays official high temp in MT was 38 at Holter Dam. This mornings low was -7 at Bredette. #mtwx 

Strong southwest winds gusts are expected from Monday through Tuesday. These strong winds are expected to lead to areas of blowing and drifting snow, which will significantly reduce visibilities and could lead to some lane blockages.

A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for areas of blowing snow beginning on Monday. Visibility could be reduced at times, and drifting snow could cause lane blockages. Plan ahead if you have travel plans through the wind prone areas. #mtwx

Yes...The date and time are accurate. Light accumulating snow in the Little Belt Mountains on July 3rd. Remember this image when we are approaching 100 deg F on Friday! Will it be a white 4th of July? (Image courtesy of Showdown Montana Ski Resort) #MTwx  #IndependenceDayInMT

Interesting atmospheric refraction phenomena observed this morning across the Bozeman Valley. This is a mirage called a "Fata Morgana", or "looming". This occurs due to a strong temp inversion of warmer air above much colder air creating a "stretched" image of far away objects.
