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 Butte/Blackfoot region...Potomac/Seeley Lake region. Wind Advisory from 9 am this morning to 9 PM MDT this evening Bitterroot/Sapphire Mountains...Missoula/Bitterroot valleys. Lake Wind Advisory from 9 am this morning to 9 PM MDT this evening Flathead/mission valleys. Idaho...&& $$
