The temperature outside my house is presently -10°F. 60 miles south of me, in Butte, Montana, the temperature is +20°F. 80 miles north of me, in Great Falls, Montana, the temperature is -18°F For the third day in a row I have opened my door to freshly fallen snow.
Our weather impulses generally come from either the west or (especially during the winter) the north.
I would love to see our weather fronts arriving from the south starting next year.
