SEPTEMBER’S ‘HISTORIC’ STORM IN THE NORTH COUNTRY | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

SEPTEMBER’S ‘HISTORIC’ STORM IN THE NORTH COUNTRY

Winter in North Idaho and other parts of the Pacific Northwest got off to a very early and rare start last weekend. For the 2019-20 season, Cliff has measured 1.1 inches of snow at his station. In Montana, this “historic” storm dumped 4 feet of snow in Browning, a town near Glacier National Park.

Snow was also reported in Missoula last Saturday. It was the first time since records began in 1893 that snow was measured in Missoula on Sept. 28.

Rare snowfalls were also seen in Nevada last weekend as well. The National Weather Service reported that 0.8 inches of snow fell on Sunday, Sept. 29. That was also the first snowfall on that date for Winnemucca since records began in 1877.

We seem to be in a weather pattern where Spokane has been receiving more moisture than Coeur d’Alene. The big snowstorm dumped 3.3 inches at the Spokane International Airport last weekend, more than 2 inches than what was measured in Coeur d’Alene and some surrounding towns in North Idaho.
