We moved the clocks forward last night, and yesterday was a beautiful day in the Bozeman area with blue sky and snow on the mountain tops. It had the feel of spring, but someone —not me–jumped the gun! Ok, it was me. I made the mistake of wondering on Facebook if winter was over. Like I do every year, I jumped the gun.

Here is the latest advisory from the National Weather Service:

… Winter Storm Warning in effect from midnight tonight to 3 am
MDT Tuesday for pass level and above…
… Winter Weather Advisory in effect from 6 am Monday to 3 am MDT
Tuesday for the higher valleys…

The National Weather Service in Great Falls has issued a Winter

mountains which is in effect from midnight tonight to 3 am MDT
Tuesday. A Winter Weather Advisory has also been issued. This
