Getting heavy rain and snow in May isn't unusual because it's one of the wettest months of the year for Montana.
However, the final numbers are in and Wednesday's spring storm was one for the record books.
Rain gauges across the state and remote SNOTEL sites sitting in the mountains reveal some places received more than three inches of rain. Snow totals ranged from a couple inches near the foothills of the Rocky Mountain Front up to two feet on the peaks.
Helena Regional Airport recorded 0.84" of rain on Wednesday, a record for May 17. In addition, climate records show this is the greatest amount of precipitation in Helena since May 16, 2015 when .86" of rain fell.
