GREAT FALLS — It's official: the weekend storm that dumped heavy snow across parts of Montana was a record-breaker for some areas, including Great Falls.
The National Weather Service in Great Falls says that 19.3 inches of snow fell in Great Falls during the storm, marking the second-highest two-day snow total ever for any time of year.
In addition, the the 9.6 inches of snow Sunday set a new daily record for September 29th, and is the second-highest ever one-day September snow amount, falling just behind Saturday's 9.7 inches.
But the Great Falls snow totals pale in comparison to the amounts received in some other communities to the north and west. More than three feet of snow fell since Friday night in some areas, particularly along the Rocky Mountain Front and in several communities to the east, including Browning, East Glacier, and Heart Butte. But topping them all: the community of Babb recorded 52 inches of snow!
