That was not your grandfather’s February, or even a February like any of us have experienced before. In this week’s Weather Wise, last month shattered all sorts of records as one of the coldest ever in Montana’s history.

On groundhog day, most of the state had highs in the 40s and 50s. Since then, countless records have been broken as one of the coldest stretches in Montana’s recorded history had the state in its icy grip and did not let go.

Good thing it was the shortest month of the year.
