Billings Montana sets two snowfall records

Also much cooler than normal.

The Billings area received 2.2 inches of snow as of midnight Friday, said Tom Humphrey, forecaster for the National Weather Service in Billings. That was a record snowfall for May 25, breaking the old record of 0.3 inches set in 1975, Humphrey said.

A second record has to do with snow depth. The NWS measures snow depth at 6 a.m., and on Saturday, that depth measured 1 inch, Humphrey said.

“That’s the latest record of 1 inch this late in May,” he said. The previous record was set in 1983.

The cooler weather pattern is expected to continue, with temperatures in the low to mid 50s on Sunday and in the low 60s on Monday. Normal temperatures for this time of the year are in the low 70s, he said.
