A look at www.weather.gov today shows that indeed winter is not 
over for some parts of the West. There are winter weather 
advisories and winter storm warnings for parts of Wyoming and Montana. 
The light purple on the map is winter weather advisories and 
the pink is winter storm warnings.
Here is what the National Weather Service issued for parts of northern Montana.
A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY ABOVE 5000 FEET REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL
NOON MDT WEDNESDAY.
* IMPACTS/TIMING: A VIGOROUS AREA OF PRECIPITATION IS DEVELOPING
  ALONG THE CONTINENTAL DIVIDE AND REMAIN IN PLACE THROUGH AT
  LEAST WEDNESDAY. INTENSE PRECIPITATION AND LOWERING SNOW
  LEVELS WILL PRODUCE SNOW ACCUMULATION IMPACTS DOWN TO AROUND
  5000 TO 5500 FEET...ESPECIALLY THIS EVENING THROUGH TONIGHT.
  PERIODS OF SNOW COULD BE PARTICULARLY HEAVY WITH FAT WET
  FLAKES AND CAUSE SIGNIFICANT REDUCTIONS IN VISIBILITY. MARIAS
  PASS SHOULD SEE RAIN CHANGE TO SNOW LATER THIS AFTERNOON WITH
  SLUSHY ACCUMULATIONS TONIGHT ON ROAD SURFACES.
 
* SNOW ACCUMULATIONS: 2 TO 5 INCHES ARE EXPECTED BETWEEN 5000
  AND 6000 FEET WITH 15 TO 20 INCHES LIKELY ABOVE ABOUT 7000
  FEET.

Amazing.
