For the first time since recording began in 1934, Billings has gone over 100 inches of snow in a single season. 

Snowfall associated with a storm that began Sunday morning as rain, amounted to 1.4 inches, which brings the yearly total to 100.6 inches, said Tom Humphrey, a Meteorologist at the NWS in Billings.

Total water associated with the storm dropped .69 inches of water on Billings, he said.

A slick Monday commute is expected in Billings. 

A Winter Weather Advisory issued by the NWS Sunday will remain in effect until 6 p.m. Monday night. 

Light snow will continue into Monday and cloudy skies with a high near 35 will keep road surfaces slick, the warning reads. Motorists should make sure to use caution when driving.

By Monday evening, snow should taper off, but cloudy skies will persist. Roads could stay icy as lows fall to 25.

There is a 20 percent chance of some snow or rain on Tuesday, as temperatures rise to 38 under partly sunny skies. 

The slight chance of rain or snow will continue into Tuesday night. Skies will be mostly cloudy as lows fall to 27.
