Officially, winter is over. It ended at 10:57 a.m. today.
Many of us feel winter needs to be in the rear view mirror, especially after the winter we just experienced.
Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Winter weather around Montana can still hit us even though we are officially in spring. Nature just can't seem to read a calender these days.
In fact, I like to tell people if it's cold enough for frost , it's cold enough for snow. In south central Montana, our average last frost comes around mid May.
That means we can still have snow up until the middle part of May.
One positive thing to keep in mind about snow this time of year is that if we do get some it usually won't last very long.
Strangely enough, we are expecting snow tonight and again tomorrow. Accumulations should not be much, maybe around an inch at best.
Tonight: Mostly cloudy with a 30% chance of rain or snow. Northwest winds 15-25 mph. Low 24.
Friday: Mostly cloudy with 60% chance of snow. Accumulation around and inch. Northeast winds 10-20 mph. High 31.
Friday Night: Mostly cloudy with a 40% chance of snow and cold. Northeast winds 10-20 mph. Low 15.
Saturday: Partly sunny with a 30% chance of snow in the morning and afternoon. East winds 5-15 mph. High 29.
