Posted by mikeheard in Uncategorized.

Monday’s storm event was impressive with regard to the amount of precipitation that fell on our region. Starting off as moderate rain before sunrise Monday and quickly turning to a rain/snow mix at sunrise and then all snow for most of the day in Bozeman. Butte also saw a rain/snow mix throughout the day but many lower elevated valleys like Three Forks it was mostly a rain event.
Here is a list of the official precipitation reports from the National Weather Service, all are record 24 hour precipitation reports for November 8th.

Gallatin Field .92″
Dillon Airport .54″
Helena Airport .31″
Lewistown .59″

No official word on MSU precipitation report from yesterday, if this is a record amount of precipitation, but from 4pm Sunday to 4pm Monday MSU recorded .72″.

On the West side of the divide precipitation amounts were well below record amounts Monday with only a Trace measured in Missoula and Kalispell. Butte Bert Mooney Airport reported .13″, Anaconda .31″, Divide .25″ all of these reports are well below record amounts.
