“Helena crushed a snowfall record Thursday, and was on the way to doing the same Friday,” says this article on helenair.com.

Helena saw 8.8 inches of snow Thursday. The previous snowfall record for Nov. 8 was 2.3 inches, set in 1903.

Total snow accumulation could hit nearly 14 inches in downtown Helena, which would put Thursday and Friday among the top for highest snowfall in a two-day period for the month of November, said Zach Uttech, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Great Falls. As of noon on Friday, the two-day total was 12.6 inches.

Higher elevations should see an additional 5-10 inches, he added.

As of 4 p.m. Friday, Montana Highway Patrol reported 46 wrecks across the whole state, including four jack-knifed semitrailers.
