The trend continues; lows near freezing and highs near 90, though it's supposed to be cooler today.

 

Also, 29 at my house this morning.

Wow, quite the swings. Need to bring a change to summer clothes as you go out the door in the morning!  :)

Hot and very windy day here yesterday. 92F at BZN, 90F in town and 84F IMBY. All warmest temps of the year. The 92 at the airport was a new record for the day.

 

Quite the cold front moved through overnight with rain and temps in the mid 40's currently. Oh what a difference a day makes!

 

For accuracies sake: Bozeman MSU amended the high of 90F on Saturday to just 86F which makes a bit more sense since I only recorded 84F IMBY. 

 

Cool and showery conditions continue here with highs only in the 40's again today. Looks like we should drop below freezing tonight. Warmer and drier weather should return tomorrow and Wednesday before more wet and cool weather returns by the end of the week.  <_<

Dropped down to 28F in my yard this morning. 29F at the airport breaking a new record low for the date.

 

Feel for my neighbors gardens this morning.  :(  Always a gamble getting gardens going before June 15th here though.

Last year I barely saved my garden when it snowed May 17th. It's tough in mountain climates.

More hot weather for a few days here, then the chance of rain returns as moisture from Bud gets pulled north.

Yeah, I didn't even realize that was going to be a factor until the radio weather guy mentioned it this morning.

If we don't start getting some moisture soon, much of West is going to burn to the ground, especially much of California, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Utah.

It's bad now, but it looks like relief is on the way for much of the region. Plenty of rain expected this weekend for some of the places that need it most (like the fire near Durango).

Here in SLC we are on the edge of Bud's influence, but yes areas SE of me should do well and boy do we need it.

Lots of rain/storms in the forecast over the next 4-7 days here with the moisture remnants of Bud even getting drawn up here. The ECMWF and GFS are both showing pretty widespread 1-3"+ rain amounts through Tuesday.

 

Nice to see things staying very green/wet this year which will hopefully keep the fire danger threat lower compared to last year as we head into July and August.

Really smoky driving in to Boulder today. Could barely see the Rockies in the distance. Several fires in the region now burning.

 

The pattern change to cooler/wetter this weekend cannot get here soon enough.

Still hot and dry with no measurable precipitation this month.    Yesterday was 93, the hottest day of the year so far.   At least the nights are still in the 30's.

Since I don't use AC for the most part it never got below 80F in my house last night.

Still hoping for some rain around the 19th from the upper level low that will settle into the area, but moisture from Bud will stay entire SE of my area. Hope it can put out some fires.

I think so, but may not be until Monday or Tuesday. The next couple days will probably be bad with winds kicking up ahead of the approaching system.

Not very often you see a forecast like this in Bozeman. Looking like rain and storms over at least the next 10 days according to all the major models. Rained here yesterday as well so it will be interesting to see what the wet streak gets up to.

Officially the low this morning was 50 at the Craig Airport due to cloud cover and high winds.   This is by far the warmest low of the year and the warmest night since last August.

Yeah you wouldn't like it here at all September - May... :lol:  Not all that different than a typical North Bend June though.

 

July and August are generally beautiful here with temps in the 70's and 80's and the occasional afternoon storms.

Yeah... the next week is probably an unfair example.   But I was just thinking about how crazy the weather has been since last fall.   I would be not be happy about suffering through 9 months of cold and snow just to get to rainy summer weather and chilly temps.   :unsure:

 

Jesse will get annoyed with this observation... but we drive through Montana twice every July/August and it seems to always be hot and smoky.     I do remember last year when we were heading east that it was really bad until right before Bozeman and then for about 20 or 30 miles it looked greener and sky was more blue... then it was back to brown and smoky all the way to Glendive.

Some of the areas in the worst drought conditions in southern CO/NM currently are now under flash flood watches with significant sub-tropical moisture approaching.

Well the amount of precip and snow we've seen since last fall has been record breaking for a large part of Montana so it's obviously not the norm. The 143.5" of snowfall Bozeman picked up this past season was the second highest on record. But yeah the "9 months of winter" saying here is actually a legitimate fact rather than an old wives' tale.

 

Montana completely dried out in June last year which was highly unusual hence all the big fires in Western MT. This year obviously is starting out a lot wetter but there are still some worries of another bad fire season here because of the abundant snowfall and rainfall resulting in high vegetation growth this spring.

 

The city of Bozeman itself is one of the wet spots in Montana with it being east of the divide while still sitting in the high mountains at a relatively high elevation with frequent summer storms. Things generally stay green and lush through the summer here until things start to go dormant again in September. Other parts of Western Montana start to dry out come July similar to the lowlands of the PNW with the peak of the fire season coming in August.

Some of the areas in the worst drought conditions in southern CO/NM currently are now under flash flood watches with significant sub-tropical moisture approaching.

Cooled off to 56F at my place last night, what a relief compared to the hot weather lately.

Yeah... the next week is probably an unfair example. But I was just thinking about how crazy the weather has been since last fall. I would be not be happy about suffering through 9 months of cold and snow just to get to rainy summer weather and chilly temps. :unsure:

Jesse will get annoyed with this observation... but we drive through Montana twice every July/August and it seems to always be hot and smoky. I do remember last year when we were heading east that it was really bad until right before Bozeman and then for about 20 or 30 miles it looked greener and sky was more blue... then it was back to brown and smoky all the way to Glendive.


It was an especially bad fire season when you drove through. Much of western Montana is generally very green. I will admit that the state gets browner as you go east, but that is true in any of the states that straddle the Rocky Mountains and high plains.

Low pressure is still just sitting right over Montana pumping plenty of moisture over the state once again this morning. Was a very wet weekend and today is no different it would seem. Flood Watch continues here until midnight tonight. Today already marks the 10th day of the month with measurable precip here.

 

Had a high of only 55F yesterday. Today should be similar with a steady light rain and 51F currently. Looks we might catch a bit of a break on Wednesday with just some afternoon storms before another front slides through on Thursday and Friday.

There was a massive severe thunderstorm in southern SLC earlier today with hail as large as golf balls. Storm had rotation and a descended wall cloud. Some people saw a funnel too. Anyway, just light rain where I was but fun to see from a distance lol

Active severe day as well, with several warned t-storms with golf ball sized hail passing by to the north of me. The last one just brushed my neighborhood about an hour ago...got some shots from the nearby hill.

The weather continues to be miserable here. Haven't been above 60 degrees since last Thursday with rain everyday since then as well. Steady rain continues here today and just 50F as we approach the noon hour. So ready for an extended dry and warm period.  :(

 

Lots of flooding occurring all over the western half of Montana currently. I guess the silver lining is our fire season window looks to be pretty narrow this year.

Saw that storm move off the foothills just north of me in Boulder. Clouds were crazy dark.

 

That storm just passed directly over I-76 with the hook...

Had a very strong line of storms roll through here earlier this afternoon with nickel size hail and tons of lightning and rain. So much lightning I was able to catch one on camera!

After one more pleasant day with storms possible on Sunday, looks like the heat returns next week. Hopefully the mega trough coming in the models will shift a bit more east.

32 this morning at the house when I left for work. It has been such a hot June that I think that this might be our last frost of the season.

I'm guessing we won't see another frost until late August/early September.

Yeah, should be close to triple digits here Wednesday and Thursday, and I'm sure DEN will have their first 100 at least one of those days. Should lock in a top 3 warm June.

 

Thankfully, looks like we'll cool back down into the 80s for the weekend.

Yep, we have had regular cold fronts keeping the heat spells limited to a few days lately. We will probably cool into the low 80s again next weekend as well.

Getting hazy here again.

 

Topped out in the upper 90s most places today. Tomorrow should be in the 100-103 range across the metro area. Shades of the epic heatwave in late June 2012, but thankfully relief arrives much sooner this time around.
