Fall. Winter. Fall. Winter. 'Tis the dance Montana generally does through the month of October. High elevations in southwest Montana could see up to 10 inches of fresh snow by Tuesday morning...so I guess that means we're back to winter!
The weather is going to be pretty messy in and around Yellowstone National Park on Monday. Several inches of snow is expected to fall, with up to 6" in the highest elevations surrounding the Park. Driving conditions could deteriorate quickly if you're in the area.
On one hand, I can't think of much that is prettier than snow capped mountain tops. On the other, while I'm over the heat and smoke, I'm not sure I'm ready for winter and everything that comes with that.
Scary hot temperatures are coming to several counties in Montana this weekend and into next week. An Excessive Heat Watch covers almost half of the state with triple digit temperatures coming for several days in a row.
