Billings officially recorded a snowfall total of 13.8 inches of accumulation for February 2022, which was more than 4 inches over our average for the month. But March could turn out to be our biggest snowmaker of the year with the way the month is going so far.

According to the current National Weather Service forecast, Billings could see 3 to 4 inches of snowfall with this next "accumulating snow event" expected to occur Monday night (3/7) through Wednesday (3/9).

N.W.S. predicts several inches of snow will accumulate in southern Montana and northern Wyoming, with the heaviest amounts expected in the mountains and foothills.

Some of the other "hazard concerns" with this storm are poor driving conditions with icy and snow packed roads likely, and the cold and wet conditions for young livestock could be dangerous, according to the National Weather Service.

Monday (3/7) is expected to be cloudy and windy with a high temperature near 40, but snow will develop on Monday night when 1 to 3 inches of accumulation is expected.
