Relevant weather events and outlooks that impact NW Montana and the Western US. Myth busters, interesting facts, and history related to weather.


Useful information for weather forecasting and research

Why Western US Weather? was created to share my passion and knowledge of common weather patterns, clear up some of the most common myths in what actually causes our weather in the Western US, and serve the local community with accurate weather forecasts for Northwest Montana.    

         Most local weather forecasts are provided by either the National Weather Service or other private weather companies like accuweather that are often not located anywhere near where you live, especially if you live in a remote or rural area like I do in the Northwest/Northern Rockies. A weather forecast for my region is likely to be more accurate and specific if provided by someone who actually lives where they are trying to forecast.
