Towns throughout western Montana set cold-weather records on Saturday.
Missoula's low of 10 degrees shattered the previous record of 20 degrees, set in 1973. "We kind of killed that record," said meteorologist Jeff Kitsmiller at the National Weather Service.
And the Garden City's high of 31 degrees was another record, for the lowest maximum temperature on Oct. 10, beating out the 42-degree mark set in 1985.
Even more impressive, though, was Seeley Lake's record-setting low of 2 degrees, shattering the 12-degree record set in 1987. And Drummond went one better, dropping to 1 degree early Saturday to beat its previous low mark of 12 degrees, also from 1987.
Up north, Polson got down to 10 degrees on Saturday morning, mocking the previous low of 25 degrees - set on Oct. 10, 1932. And Kalispell's low of 5 was 11 degrees colder than the previous record, set in 1987.
Thompson Falls? Another record low at 18 degrees, better than the 22-degree chill in 1987. Anaconda? You guessed it: another record, with a low of 8 degrees, decisively colder than the 13-degree cold of 1919.
Kitsmiller said Sunday morning will likely bring another bunch of record lows, with 4 degrees forecast for Kalispell, 9 degrees in Missoula and minus 4 in Seeley Lake. Sunday's high temperatures, he said, should sound pretty familiar: 32 for Missoula, 31 for Kalispell.
