Windy but very warm for December!

We have been feeling the Chinook effect, a Native American word for “snow eater.” Up to 30 mph winds along the eastern slopes of the Rockies are responsible for temperatures well above normal for almost mid-December!

We managed to break the 50 degree barrier today thanks to the wind. In fact the high officially was 51 degrees and a normal day should be 31. Also a peek at the sun off and on today!

Even the wind at night has kept us warm and melting the snow and ice. Our low was 40 this morning and a normal low is 15 degrees.

While Kentucky and other southern states struggle with cold temperatures and snow we are getting a few bonus days in Montana.

It won’t last long for us though. By Wednesday things will be back to normal and then turn colder by Friday and into the weekend. It’s never boring weather in Montana!!!
