If you thought last night was cold, wait until tonight!

Clearing skies and a large mass of arctic air is sinking southward into Montana and boy did it get cold last night!

Sunny but still cold!

Here is a look at some of the hourly observations at the Great Falls International Airport while we were sleeping (well most of us!)

The first temperature reading is the air temperature, while the second “f” is the dew point each hour.  Brrrrr! The first reading is the one to watch!

Early morning lows!

NWS Predicted Lows Tonight!

We are in for the same thing tonight but even colder. It looks like at least -25 degrees. A little wind will push the wind chill down even colder.

The good thing is by Wednesday we will see much warmer temperatures, well into the 30’s again!

Stay warm as you can and don’t forget to protect your pets from the bitter temperatures outdoors.  Below you will find the lows from various parts of the state, including one at -33!
