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!
As reported by Yahoo News:
[quote_box_center]Peak daytime temperatures set cool-weather records in much of Idaho on Monday, with highs that were around 10 degrees chillier than usual for the last week of July.
The mercury in Idaho Falls climbed to just 68 degrees Fahrenheit on Monday, six degrees below the previous record for coolest daytime peak temperature for the date, set in 1993. Likewise, the central Idaho town of Challis saw its coldest daytime high for the date in 75 years – 66 degrees, down from the previous record of 72 set on July 27, 1940.
It’s very rare for a cold front to move through in July. It has happened before, but it’s anomalous.[/quote_box_center]
The anomalous snowfall and weird weather conditions in the Bitterroot Mountains, Montana, are discussed by a meteorologist in the following video:
I really don’t know what’s going on on right now but the weather is going like crazy!
