An inversion over Northwest Montana as viewed from the slopes of Blacktail Mountain on Nov. 18, 2023. Temperature inversions occur when colder air near the surface of the Earth becomes trapped under a layer of warmer air, causing clouds to settle into valleys, leaving clear sunny skies at higher elevations.
