Winter Storm Bozeman is Here
After Astro hit earlier this week, it didn’t take Winter Storm Bozeman long to follow.
A Bozeman High School Latin class helped name the storms, thus earning it a shout-out from The Weather Channel, which named its "B" storm after the Montana city.
Winter Storm Bozeman is expected to dump snow from parts of Oregon and Washington to parts of Idaho, northern Nevada, Utah, Wyoming and Colorado through Saturday, according to The Weather Channel. Portland, Oregon and the northern Willamette Valley are expected to get the brunt of the action from Winter Storm Bozeman.
“A storm system began moving into the Pacific Northwest on Wednesday night. It is transporting mild, moist Pacific air over the shallow, cold air mass near the ground. This will result in an unusually early spell of winterlike weather for the region. In fact, winter storm watches, warnings and advisories have already been issued for much of the Oregon, Idaho, and southern Washington state area. In addition, due to the threat of extremely gusty winds as well as wind-blown snow,” according to The Weather Channel's website.
Winter Storm Astro hit Montana and other parts of the U.S. earlier this week, making it the first named storm of the year. Since the storm names are assigned alphabetically, Cato is up next.
Here’s a list of all the storm names.
