Billings snowfall shatters previous record

More than twice the old record – and the snow keeps coming.

The 6.2 inches of snow at Billings Logan International Airport more than doubled the previous record for Dec. 14 of 2.9 inches set in 1989, said Aaron Gilstad, National Weather Service meteorologist.

Other parts of Billings received significantly more snow: Meteorologists measured about 9 inches at the NWS office on Overland Avenue.

The National Weather Service forecast a 30 percent chance of snow showers on Wednesday.

Several area schools were closed Tuesday because of the snow.

  1. Wait – I thought the media keeps saying that it’s “too warm for snow” when it drops below 32F? Cold = hot now????
    I guess kids are being taught now that in order for snow to fall, the temperature has to be above 85F. Is that cold enough??
