BILLINGS - The National Weather service says a record amount of snow fell on Billings on Saturday.
Billings-based meteorologist Sean Campbell tells the Billings Gazette that a foot of snow fell on the city between midnight and 6 p.m., eclipsing the previous one-day record of 2.5 inches set in 2007.
Campbell says the storm covered most of Montana except for the northwest corner.
Red Lodge received 13 inches of snow on Saturday, and 20 inches fell a mile outside of Cooke City.
Cooke City and nearby Silver Gate also suffered power outages starting on Thursday when the storm moved in, and wintery driving conditions delayed repair crews trying to restore power on Saturday.
