Anomalous snowfall in the Idaho, Montana and Wyoming Northern Rockies

More than an inch of snow was reported on Monday in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and in the mountains of western Montana and central Idaho near Salmon.

The freak July cold front settled over Idaho, Montana and Wyoming in a pattern rarely seen in those states before late August or September. Weather anomaly!

It’s very rare for a cold front to move through in July. It has happened before, but it’s anomalous.[/quote_box_center]

  1. I live in Idaho and last night was the coldest night during a July month I’ve ever felt since moving here. Last year the nights would be so warm you were sweating. It kind of sucks because this sudden weather change is driving my cold up the wazoo. It’s hard to work with a stuffy head
