A Severe Thunderstorm Warning was issued within the last hour for Big Horn County in Montana.
If you read the text of a recent warning update (as shown in the picture above), you'll note that in addition to the 65 mph wind gusts being produced by the "bow echo" of the severe storm, very heavy snow is falling at the same time, causing near zero visibility!
Now that's what I call thundersnow!
