    Key words: "not that often." I have a very good friend who lives in Helena and it is not at all uncommon to have snow in that part of Montana in June . That applies even more to the surrounding mountains.

    Both statements can be true at the same time.

    We live 15 miles NW of Helena. We got a foot of snow last night. High today at our place was 17 and expected to be -7 tonight. This is uncommon for October and 50 degree temperatures are forecasted next week. This is our tenth winter in Montana. I do not recall snow in June at our elevation (4,200 feet) but we have seen snow in late July in Flesher Pass 20 miles west of us.

    Fairbanks is expecting a low of 18F tonight.

    I'm guessing that we're all concerned with the recent weather and maybe have lost our place in line with the "global warming" threat.
    I don't want to be an alarmist, but I should mention that as sophisticated as our weather service is, prediction of weather as a science still has a lot of development left to go.

    Yep, but it's still the cheapest lab class a K-12 science teacher can access. The experiment runs for free with zero preparation and everyone is an observer. Better yet, the guvment provides the real time data, lots of interesting pictures and discussions of how the forecast was made.

    I'll tell you what I've found that's exceptionally accurate, as it pertains to "short term" prediction for ride/travel planning.

    It's the NWS 10 day Forecast for location/region.

    I'm a fan of the NWS. I'm also local enough to Accuweather to know that they (Accuweather) shouldn't be running the NWS.

    I never trust a 10 day forecast.
    Aug 31st the forecast for Gunnison Colorado showed it would be 69 and partly cloudy.


    This is what we got on Sep 8th.
