Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Missoula Montana 217 PM MDT sun Jul 5 2015 Discussion...a complex weather scenario continues this afternoon across western Montana and north central Idaho. At the surface, the backdoor cold front from yesterday remains stalled from roughly Lookout Pass through Hamilton to Dillon. This has resulted in a general north to east wind across much of western Montana. Winds will remain gusty under this boundary through the evening, especially in favored areas such as Hellgate Canyon near Missoula and Badrock Canyon near Kalispell. Flathead Lake has also been receiving gusty winds, which has caused choppy conditions for boaters. A lake winds advisory has been issued through this evening due to these conditions. Meanwhile, a wave of energy aloft is moving into the area from Canada. This wave will provide additional lift in the atmosphere and is expected to interact with the stalled frontal boundary to allow for a few afternoon and evening thunderstorms to develop. While thunderstorm coverage is not expected to be very widespread, the few storms that do develop could become strong due to a favorable sheared environment. The most likely area to see stronger storms is along and south of the I-90 corridor. Gusty winds, brief heavy rain, small hail and of course lightning will all be possible with any storms that develop. Showers and thunderstorms should end abruptly tonight as drier air filters in to the region behind this wave of energy. Tomorrow, temperatures will begin to warm again as weak ridging moves into the area. Overall a pleasant day is expected. A few afternoon and evening thunderstorms are possible, but should be mainly confined to southwest Montana and Lemhi County in Idaho. A cold front dropping down the Rocky Mountain front on Tuesday will bring a chance of showers and thunderstorms, especially to northwest Montana and along The Divide. Thunderstorms will be capable of wetting rains but due to recent dryness, lightning strikes may lead to fire weather concerns across northwest Montana. This cold front is not expected to be as strong as the one that passed through this weekend but gusty easterly winds are anticipated for the favored locations such as Badrock Canyon on Tuesday afternoon and evening. For the remainder of the coming week, temperatures will remain around 5-10 degrees above normal with Thursday expected to be the warmest day. Isolated to scattered shower/thunderstorm activity is anticipated on Wednesday and Thursday, generally south of I-90. By Friday and Saturday, forecast models are indicating a more active period as weak disturbances and accompanying surges of moisture allow for the potential of more widespread thunderstorm activity. && Aviation...breezy northeast to east winds continue today, mainly across western Montana. Kgpi and kmso are seeing the most steady winds at 10-20 kts with gusts to 25kts. These winds will continue through 06/0300z, but should gradually decrease through the evening. Showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop this afternoon, mainly along and south of the Interstate 90 corridor. Kbtm, kmso and ksmn all have a small potential of seeing a thunderstorm through 06/0300z. There is a small potential for a couple storms to become strong, which could produce gusty winds, brief heavy rain and possibly even some small hail. Thunderstorm activity will decrease rather rapidly late this evening as drier air moves into the region. There is some potential for kbtm to experience some low stratus early Monday morning which may obscure the terrain, likely after 06/0900z. && Mso watches/warnings/advisories... Montana...Lake Wind Advisory until 9 PM MDT this evening Flathead/mission valleys. Idaho...none. && $$
