BILLINGS - Many of us are still trying to dig out of the recent snow storm. But that wasn't the first storm to hit the area. Snow has been blanketing the Billings area for two weeks now.

Officials at the National Weather Service say this month has been unlike any other December of this decade. Despite the first two weeks of relatively warmer temperatures, this month overall is the coldest December in 30 years.

Though it's been a while since we've seen weather this cold and this much snow, officials say it's not that unusual. "This is Montana, it's winter and it's something we haven't seen in several years, but it certainly is something that happens, so just be careful," Joe Lester.

He says the weather is more difficult to predict this time of year because weather patterns change more frequently. He says you can expect warmer and drier weather to come, though it will be accompanied with winds.
