Yellowstone? Yeah it’s been a few years. Last time we were in the area was two summers ago when we stayed near Big Sky resort. Unfortunately that was for a friend’s wedding and we didn’t have time to make it up to the park.

Yep! You were so close while at Big Sky! I highly reccomend going during the winter months as well. Either driving through the North gate or rent snowmobiles and go through the West gate. So beautiful and will give you a whole different perspective of the park.

Gorgeous at Logan Pass yesterday. Clouds were building by 4pm and it was storming by 5, though. Good timing since that’s when we got back to the car.

DEN has strung together 5 below normal days in a row, and should have two more to finish out the month. Will probably end up with a monthly anomaly around +1.

July ended up being a really pleasant month here. Average to below average temps, the airport actually ended up being nearly -2F on the month. Bozeman ended up about average with 3 days above 90 and the hottest temp being only 91F.

 

I ended up with a 63.9F average temp whereas Bozeman was 67.0F so quite a bit cooler even though we are only ~500' higher than town so definitely a bit of a UHI effect going on. 89F and 33F were my extremes on the month. 

 

Feel really fortunate with the cool'ish temps here since most of the west was above to well above average.

The below average weather looks to continue here for the rest of this week with a chance of daily thunderstorms. Hoping we can pick up some decent rainfall with some of these storms as things have really dried out here now.

It was by far our hottest month on record.  Here is the data from the airport:

Also unusual, we were one of the warmer ares in Colorado when it comes to average high temperatures for July. We weren't as warm as Grand Junction or Lamar, but we were as warm as Pueblo and warmer than all of eastern Colorado north of that (at least for the stations I checked).

 

I don't know if something like that has ever happened.   In Colorado, Craig is usually known for the cold rather than the heat.

My rain gauge ended up with .1" for July, but some of that was from my sprinklers on 2 days, so my actual total was .06" I think. Either way, a very dry month.

Moisture has increased the last day, but storms will likely miss my area. Mountains and favored valleys should get something though.

I've had storms here the last couple of days with some 40+ mph winds being the main hazard. 

 

NW flow here this morning clearing out the haze/smoke from CA/OR fires that we've had the last couple of days. A bit chilly but a beautiful morning with a low of 44F. Looking like low to mid 70's through the weekend with a continued chance of storms before the heat possibly builds back in later next week.

 

Currently 62F.

The airport in Belgrade topped out at 93 a couple of days ago but still only topped out at 89F here so it hasn't been too bad. Late next week could easily exceed that though.

Rare early morning tornado out on the plains today: https://denver.cbslo...do-weld-county/

 

The convection east of here has socked us in with stratus near the mountains. Was supposed to get up near 90 today, but still only 63 as of 11 am.

Hot hot hot is the name of the game here today and tomorrow. Likely the hottest temps of the year and even approaching record high levels. Will likely top 90F IMBY for the first time this year.

 

Looks like a bit of a reprieve here Sunday and Monday before the heat possibly builds back in later next week. 90's get pretty tough to achieve this time of year here so what the models show (mid to upper 90's) later next week would be pretty unheard of with record highs only in the low 90's.

We've really lucked out this summer. Definitely due for the heat to finally edge out here and still nothing compared to the rest of the West in terms of duration.

Heat has been quite tolerable here for about the past month.

 

Mid June to early July was mostly miserable.

Well, that escalated quickly! Bozeman hit 100 yesterday for the first time since 2007. The 100 also looks to now be the hottest August day on record since record keeping began in 1892. Real sneaker of a heatwave! Even hit 95F here.

 

Been a bizarre summer with Bozeman being mostly spared from all heat in the West up until the last couple of days when suddenly records started falling left and right. Thankfully it is brief heatwave with cooler temps today and back into the 80's this upcoming week.

98 today at Craig Airport.  This was the hottest August reading ever recorded at any of the weather stations in the area.  

 

Also interesting, we went camping in a meadow at Gold Creek east of here and at 9840 feet elevation.  It was 29 degrees this morning due to cold air pooling.

Really nice weather here the past couple of days. Highs in the 70's, lows in the 40's and no smoke!  

 

Looks like beginning Friday night through the weekend we'll see our first taste of fall! All the models are showing a pretty good soaking of rain and storms with dropping temps. Could see 0.5"+ of rain which would be great to see!

Summer just started there a couple weeks ago!  

 

I don't think I would do well there.   I would rather have a longer growing season and rain most of the winter over snow for 9 months and the possibility of snow in June and fall beginning in August.   Summer is way too short for me even here.    I assume you can't really have a productive vegetable garden there?

A friend of mine has a big backpacking trip planned for Glacier National Park next weekend, but may have to cancel due to nearby forest fires.

At least my garden has loved all of the warm nights. I've had a pretty productive year.

A little circulation is spinning in central utah and moving north. Maybe some unexpected showers today.

Love the sunflowers!🌻 We have plenty of those peaking around here right now as well.

It is a short summer and growing season but we can still grow things here! Didn’t get started on our garden this season cause we are still getting everything landscaped on our property which has kept us pretty consumed. Hardy vegetables do really well here though. Tomatoes and things of that sort are a no go of course but Broccoli, lettuce, carrots etc do great here!

Yeah NW Montana is once again getting the worst of fire conditions with dry conditions. Lots of closures up there in Glacier right now due to the Ridge Fire. And once again the wet conditions forecasted for this weekend looks to stay focused east of the divide. Story of the past year now.

Really impressive readings from the heat wave last week in ID/western MT. Some COOP numbers: 

 

110 @ Saint Maries, ID (prev. all-time 109 in 1961)

108 @ Libby Dam Base, MT (prev. all-time 106 in 2001)

107 @ Thompson Falls Power House, MT (tied all-time, 107 in 1961)

106 @ Swan Lake, MT (prev. all-time 103 in 1969)

106 @ Eureka Ranger Station, MT (prev. all-time 105 in 1994 & 2006)

105 @ Bonners Ferry, ID (tied all-time 105, just set in June 2015)

 

Great Falls Airport also hit 105, just missing the all-time record of 106 from August 1961 & August 1969.

Getting pounded with a heavy thunderstorm now. Third period of rain today, with sunshine and pleasant temps in the 70s in between.

 

DEN is running a negative anomaly for the month, and that will be dropping over the next few days. Since early July, this has been a very nice summer here.

Definitely feels like we've made the turn into fall now. Spent most of the afternoon yesterday with temps in the 50's with non convective rain. 

 

Woke up this morning to cool temps in the mid 40's and wet conditions but very smokey skies. Definitely the worst yet from the Canadian fires.

 

Tomorrow brings another round of storms and rain with highs only in the 60's. Locally, it looks like the fire season window is closing quickly now. Just wish we could see some more moisture over those Canadian fires.

Looks like you guys will be close to 80 today. Then 60s the next few days before another warming trend.
