Record-breaking snowfall for Great Falls

Great Falls has received a lot of snow in recent months and throughout the year - and broken (or come close to breaking) some records.

According to the National Weather Service , Great Falls in November received 24.1" of snow, which is just a little short of the all-time November record that was set in 2005, when Great Fall received 24.9" of snow.

Great Falls has also picked up record snow for "meteorological Fall," which runs from September 1st to December 1st. During that three-month period, Great Falls received 60.4" inches of snow, shattering the previous record of 29.1" that was set in 1985.

And for calendar year 2019 so far, Great Falls has received 119.3" of snow, which is more than the previous record of 116.5", set back in 1989. That's nearly double the normal yearly average, which is 63.5" inches.

Some other snowfall data from the National Weather Service:

  • In Havre, 25.8" of snow fell during November, which was just shy of the November monthly record of 26.4" set in 1958.
  • Helena received 10.5" of snow fell during November, well below the November monthly record of 32.9" set in 1959
