  • BEFORE OCTOBER 31, 2014 THERE WILL BE SIGNIFICANT CHANGES TO THE NATIONAL WATER AND CLIMATE CENTER (NWCC) WEBPAGE!
    Many of the products we feature on the Montana Snow Survey website link directly to the NWCC webpage. Particular web pages and tools will be modified at different times throughout the process. Some of your current links and shortcuts may become broken during this timeframe. Some products and tools may not have a replacement. For questions please contact Rashawn Tama-Sweet.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during the transition to our new web environment!
