Light Snow and Bitter Cold for the Holiday
Christmas day brought bitter cold and very light snow to Billings. The National Weather Service reports we got four tenths of an inch of snow. The temperature was about 30 degrees below normal. Usually we average 35 degrees in Billings on Christmas Day. However, as bone chilling as the cold was , we didn’t even come close to setting the record. That’s because back in 1983, the low temperature on Christmas Day in Billings was 21 degrees below zero. The forecasters say the bitter cold is expected to continue all week.
