Another Snowy Winter For Bozeman?

Jim Brusda, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Great Falls, told the Bozeman Daily Chronicle that snow amounts similar to last year are possible thanks to the re-emergence of La Nina.

The past three winters have been among Bozeman’s top five snowiest on record, and this coming winter may be no different. La Nina has re-emerged in the tropical Pacific Ocean. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is forecasting her to gradually stengthen and continue into winter. What that usually means for Montana is a wet, snowy winter.

The Chronicle said last season 134 inches of snow fell in Bozeman, according to measurements taken at Montana State University, about 42 inches more than normal. Only the 1996 winter produced more snow in Bozeman than the last three. A record 158 iches fell that year. Despite all the snow we’ve seen over the last few years, it hasn’t been colder in Bozeman. The average temperature last year was 47 degrees, half a degree higher than normal.

I, for one, will take a lot of snow so long as it’s not too cold. Let’s go for the record this year….bring on another phenomenal ski season!
