Storm drops 3+ feet of snow in some areas of Montana

Posted: Dec 20, 2017 5:51 PM Updated:

MTN's STORMTracker Weather Team said it would happen, and it did!

More than three feet of snow on Montana during a winter storm that lingered on for three days.

The highest snow total, as of late Wednesday, was reported along Highway 2 just south of Glacier National Park.

40" of snow was recorded at Essex, Montana during the three-day winter storm.

Initial reports from the National Weather Service indicate many other locations received 2-3' of snow.

Great Falls officially recorded 8.2" of snow, Helena reported 3-7", and Havre got 6-8".

A cold front diving south from Canada late Thursday night will produce more snow heading into Friday and Saturday.

An additional 3-5" of snow is expected from this storm system, which will ensure Montana enjoys a white Christmas this year.

Following the cold front, very cold air will arrive, with high temperatures falling into the single digits above zero and morning lows dropping below zero through the weekend and heading into Christmas.

Hazardous road conditions are reported across many areas, leading to numerous slide-offs and minor crashes.
