NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Missoula Montana 
347 am MDT Sat Mar 28 2015 


Discussion...a cold front is crossing the region this morning 
causing some showers and gusty winds. This fast-moving system 
will be over the Continental Divide by noon MDT, leaving isolated 
showers and very gusty winds behind it. The first bout of winds 
will last less than an hour and will arrive with the front, then 
winds will increase again this afternoon as the heat of the sun 
mixes the lower atmosphere. Several areas have wind advisories. 


A lake Wind Advisory has been issued for Flathead Lake where 20mph 
plus winds are expected most of the day once the front passes. 
This will cause difficult, choppy conditions for small and 
under-powered water craft. Those planning on being on the lake 
today should be prepared for a rough day. 


Missoula and areas east, including Ovando, Avon, Butte, and 
especially Garrison Junction to Deer Lodge can expect 20-30 mph 
winds this afternoon with frequent gusts near 50 mph. Interstate 
90 from Garrison Junction past Deer Lodge will be a very difficult 
stretch of Road due to the very erratic nature of the cross winds 
on the Highway. 


Winds will decrease this evening setting up a cooler and breezy 
Sunday, though temperatures will still remain about 5 degrees 
above average. 


Monday looks to be another warm day, similar to yesterday, but a 
few degrees cooler. Things again change quickly on Tuesday when a 
cold front moves through bringing more rain and wind. Winds will 
be breezy, and could be almost as potent as the ones we are 
expected to feel later today. 


After the front moves through Tuesday into Wednesday, models 
depict the pattern changing. A broad trough with weak disturbances 
moving through it will lead to a longer period of unsettled 
weather, with chances for rain & snow on most days through next 
weekend. With this change comes colder air: snow levels will be 
low enough to cause mountain passes to be impacted by periods of 
snow, and may be low enough for valleys to see snow or a wintry 
mix at times. 


&& 


Aviation... 
this morning's rain showers will exit the area by around 
28/1500z. Kgpi and kmso have the best shot of seeing rain from 
this system, and could even see a stray lightning strike or two. 
Winds will shift with the frontal passage and cause gusty 
conditions. Kbtm and kmso will likely be the windiest, with 
sustained 20+ kt winds and gusts to around 30kt being common 
throughout the day. Winds will quiet down at nightfall as the 
pressure gradient weakens.

Mso watches/warnings/advisories... 
Montana...Wind Advisory from 9 am this morning to 9 PM MDT this evening
