‘Historic’ winter storm breaks century-long records in Montana – Video

Four feet (120 cm) of snow fell in the town of Browning, near Glacier National Park in Montana, from Friday to Sunday.

On Saturday snow was recorded at Missoula International Airport, the first time snow was measured there on a September 28 date since 1893.

Storm winds and blizzard conditions were forecast to continue through Monday in parts of Montana, California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Nevada and Utah.

At least eight Montana school districts cancelled classes on Monday due to the heavy snowfall

Montana Gov Steve Bullock declared an emergency Sunday due to heavy snow on the first weekend of fall

  1. It’s also probably not melting. It’s been below freezing for a week, snowed every night in Yellowstone, and now is snowing with renewed intensity.

  2. “The historic storm” hit the west of the USA

    Only the summer was over, and in the western regions of the United States came truly winter weather. In some places, records of low temperature have already been broken, the wind is raging. Some territories of the states of Utah, Nevada, Washington, Montana, Oregon, Washington and even California were covered with a layer of snow.
    The National Meteorological Service has already assigned the status of “historical” to the storm, and also warned of a possible drop in air temperature far below normal.
    “The unprecedented bad weather gave us a surprise,” complains Stephen Bullock, governor of Montana. – We were forced to declare an emergency regime. ”The trees tumbled down in the wind, damaged power lines, and cellular communications were interrupted in some places.”

    -it seems that some protests against global warming are working…..haha.

  3. So the probability seems to be increasing that any of the glaciers in Glacier National Park that might have been “retreating” might to growing. Yes?

  4. Ma nature taking a shortcut
    cold crappy summer and shes decided to skip autumn and just do more winter it looks like;-) hope the locals have put food out for wildlife

  5. Without reiterating 500-year Little Ice Age contexts from AD 1350 – 1850/1890, these high-latitude seasonal extremes reflect Earth’s 140-year “amplitude compression” rebound to AD 2030.

    In brief, as cyclic frequency and wavelengths shorten, temperature anomalies (“amplitudes”) associated with regional floods and snowfalls proportionally increase. Since this is a “cold air” phenomenon, diminished “hot air rising” over oceanic areas reduces hurricane intensity and frequency.

    For the record, 1890 – 1939 was a 50-year warm phase, followed by 40 years of global chill from 1940 – ’79. AGW poseurs’ much-hyped “global warming” lasted thirty years, from 1980 – 2009, now succeeded by twenty years of pronounced chill from 2010 – 2029.

    Come 2030, these decadal phases will have played out– coincident with a looming Super-Grand Solar Minimum through c. AD 2110 (Svensmark, Zharkova), Earth’s next 102-kiloyear Pleistocene glaciation will proceed on schedule, due to cover 60 – 70% of habitable landmasses with ice sheets two miles thick.

    Because this is at root an astro-geophysical (plate tectonic) phenomenon due to persist another 15 – 20 million years, all anyone can do is bid farewell to dustmote Earth for vast intra-solar refugia safely removed from planetary cycles, ascending en masse skyward– to the stars.

    • Judging by that last sentence in that last paragraph, and considering the state of technology, sounds like you are “prophesizing” a mass die off. I wouldn’t bet against you.

  6. There and Babb, a town that’s outside the reservation, I think, just north. 52″ at least. Browning is on the plains, next to the foothills. I can’t even imagine how much snow they got on the East side of Glacier Narional Park!

  7. As to Kevin above on glaciers in Montana and Robert’s reply, I understand (I think from Robert a while ago) that all west coast glaciers i.e. Shasta, Hood, Ranier, have been growing for some time!
