...Rainfall and Snowfall Reports...

Heavy precipitation fell across much of central and southwest
Montana over the past two days. The heaviest amounts were over
higher elevations in the southwest and in the Rocky Mountains
west of Dupuyer. Amounts up to 4-inches were reported. Heavy
snow fell at the higher elevations as well. Nearly two-feet of
snow fell at Badger Pass (west of Dupuyer), while amounts of more
than a foot fell in the southwest mountains. Even Bozeman and
West Yellowstone had snow accumulations.

Meanwhile this storm largely missed areas from Chinook and Havre to
Chester and north to the international border.
