After a winter of extreme weather swings, Montana managed to get enough mountain snow in April that most rivers should run at normal levels this summer, barring sudden drought, heat or overuse.

As of May 1, snow in most western Montana mountains matches the 30-year average, with the Bitterroot River basin coming out a little ahead and the Kootenai basin a little behind, according to the May U.S. Natural Resource and Conservation Service report.
