Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Missoula Montana 
150 PM MST Friday Nov 28 2014 


..Arctic front to impact northern rockies tonight through 
Saturday... 
..bitterly cold temperatures by Sunday... 


Discussion...with the Arctic front now past the Canadian/US 
border east of The Divide, it won't be long until the harsh 
effects of the front will begin to impact western Montana and 
central Idaho. Given the high confidence in this front and all of 
its associated impacts tonight and through the weekend, various 
winter storm warnings/advisories have been issued. 


The main impacts still remain as follows: 


1) snow and blowing snow causing inclement travel: northwest 
Montana will be hardest hit tonight into Saturday as far as 
snowfall and gusty east winds are concerned. Locations along 
Highway 93 from Eureka south and east to The Divide will be most 
impacted, with travel expected to be nasty over Marias Pass due to 
intense snow/blowing snow. Any wet roads caused by rainfall today 
could flash freeze, creating an icy surface for snow to fall on, 
exacerbating travel issues through Saturday morning. 


Snow across west central Montana and north central Idaho will also 
present travel problems, especially over mountain passes 
connecting the Idaho/Montana border. Accumulations over passes 
will be greater than in valleys, where roads may become difficult 
for a time but aren't expected to last as long as across northwest Montana. 
Those traveling over lookout and Lolo passes will encounter very 
snowy travel, so plan accordingly. 


2) bitterly cold temperatures/wind chills: behind the Arctic front, 
expect winds to remain elevated as the coldest air settles over 
the region. Temps have been mild recently, remaining in the 40s 
and 50s, but will crash into the single digits and teens by 
Sunday. This will definitely be felt, especially Sunday and 
Monday mornings when temps will be in the single digits. Wind 
chills in the negatives should be anticipated during this time. 


Next week will feature a slow warming trend to near normal 
temperatures by mid-week. A series of weak weather systems will 
spread a chance of light precipitation across the area. 


&& 


Aviation...light rain today will transition to heavy mountain 
snow and moderate to heavy valley snow starting around 29/0300z. 
Gusty winds up to 35 to 40 kts are likely at kgpi around this same 
time frame and will last through Saturday morning, in addition to 
low visibility and ceilings due to snow and blowing snow. All 
other terminals will experience impacts to aviation due to 
snowfall and gusty winds, but snowfall is not expected to be as 
great in these areas. Periods of intense snowfall are still 
likely, with intermittent ceiling/vis reductions. Expect inclement 
conditions to affect the northern rockies through the day Saturday 
before conditions start to finally ease up.
