It’s barely even fall but it feels more like the heart of winter in parts of Montana.
More than a foot of snow has fallen since a historic winter storm impacted the region.
It happened when a cold front with strong winds moved in followed by a low pressure system.
All that cold air made sure the precipitation that fell was frozen leading to significant snow accumulation.
Strong winds near tropical storm strength are producing white out conditions in some regions of the northern Rockies.
Forecasters also warned those gusts could create waves as high 6 feet on Flathead Lake.
Meanwhile cities like Dallas and Phoenix are still experiencing highs in the 90s.
