Episode Narrative Strong winds aloft along with a series of deep surface lows moving across southern Canada combined to produce strong winds over a wide area of North Central Montana. A wind gust to 133 mph was reported at the Logan Pass Visitor Center in Glacier Park. Numerous reports of 60 to 80 mph gusts were reported elsewhere along the Rocky Mountain front and adjacent plains. Many power poles were blown down resulting in areas of power outages. Many trees were reported down in the Little Belt mountains resulting in the blocking of snowmobile trails. Also, the eastbound Amtrak was delayed by four to five hours.
Event Narrative A gust to 65 mph was reported at the Raynolds Pass DOT site.
