Montana’s governor Steve Bullock issued a “Winter Storm Emergency” for Montana over the weekend due to the “historic early season storm” that is currently slamming into the state.

“With an unprecedented winter storm throwing our state a surprise in September, state and local governments are working closely together to protect the health and safety of Montanans and our top priority is making sure that happens.  Montanans should heed all warnings from state and local officials, travel safely, and be cautious during this time.” – Governor Bullock, 9/29/19

Up to 4-feet of snow fell on Saturday in some northwestern Montana locations and continued throughout the weekend. The town of Browning, near Glacier National Park, recorded 40 inches of snow Sunday.

“Many daily record low maximum temperature records are possible through Monday, especially across the Northern Great Basin, Rockies and Northern California,” the weather service said.

Great Falls, Montana, which averages 1.2 inches of snow in September, was at 16 inches and counting Sunday. The 9.7 inches of snow recorded Saturday broke a 65-year old record.

Big Sky Resort, MT shared a video on social media with the caption ‘it looks skiable in Big Sky’.
