There’s cold temperatures, and then there’s what some parts of Montana woke up to on Tuesday morning.
Temperatures dropped below zero in some parts of the Treasure State on Tuesday morning as an unusually cold blast of Arctic air continues to push through the country’s northern tier. Records were broken across much of the state, including in Montana’s largest city, Billings.
Livingston, Montana saw its temperature go below zero, breaking its daily record by a full seven degrees on Tuesday .
Average lows in Montana this time of year, depending on elevation, are usually in the 20s. Single digits and certainly below zero readings are well below normal.
The cold somewhat moderates as the week wears on, but temperatures will remain well below average through the next few days and into the upcoming weekend.
