Episode Narrative A second major snowstorm and blizzard within a weeks time brought heavy snow and strong winds to portions of Southern Montana and Northern Wyoming. This storm impacted areas that were hit hard by the March 23-24 storm. An upper level low pressure moved out of the Pacific Northwest and moved across Idaho and Wyoming. At the same time, a strong surface low pressure developed over Southern Montana and Northern Wyoming. Winds across the area were sustained in the 25 to 35 mph range with gusts from 30 to 40 mph. These winds combined with heavy snow resulted in visibilities being reduced to a quarter mile at many locations. In addition, snowfall exceeded 12 in Carbon, Stillwater and Custer Counties. The storm resulted in one death. A 19-year-old woman was killed on Highway 39 near Forsyth after losing control of her car on the snow covered highway.
Event Narrative Roundup reported 8-10 inches of snow.
