GFS has another system coming into the Northwest that will produce more snow for the mountains. I havent checked the other models but GFS has been spot on lately with everything.

It's been a great June so far. I think we're going to pay for it later in the month though with some highs in the 90s. This time of year is really variable here. It can be 55F and raining or it can be 100F+ and bone dry.

Default Montana snowpack numbers jump

Montana snowpack numbers jump | KXLF.com | Butte, Montana

The snow kept falling in May, helping to boost snowpack levels by 17% across Montana, according to the latest survey from the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service.

An analysis of the June 1 snow survey numbers also show that in some parts of the state the snowpack levels jumped 32%.

"Large temperature swings accompanied by near average moisture brought significant snowstorms, as well as rain, to the watersheds of Montana over the course of May," said Brian Domonkos, NRCS water supply specialist for Montana. "Cooler temperatures through May not only slowed the accelerated melt-rates of April, but allowed more precipitation to fall in the form of snow rather than rain."

The latest stats show that overall about 30% of this year's snowpack remains thanks to a late May snowstorm and some areas will still see streams running high until later this month
