NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Missoula Montana 
228 PM MDT Tuesday Oct 21 2014 


Discussion...a lot of rain has fallen across the area today, with 
many locations reporting over 0.3 inches of rain in the last 24 
hours and many mountain stations reporting over half an inch of 
new liquid. Snow was also observed at elevations above 6000 feet 
south of Missoula. 


As this system exits the area tonight, scattered low clouds and 
patchy fog will develop across the northern rockies due to the 
ample moisture left behind. High pressure centered over southwest 
Montana and Lemhi County Idaho will drive light southerly winds 
over much of western Montana tonight, keeping the fog patchy and 
limited to areas sheltered from southerly winds. Also, much less 
rain fell over northwest Montana, so fog is less likely there. In 
central Montana, the southerly winds will be stronger preventing 
fog from forming in the Grangeville and Orofino or on the Camas 
Prairie. 


On Wednesday high pressure will intensify as a ridge builds over 
the area. This will continue to drive southerly winds and allow 
temperatures to rise to above normal readings again. A strong jet 
stream with very moist flow will move across the Pacific 
northwest, just glancing the northwest corner of northwest Montana 
ahead of the next system, mainly affecting Troy before more 
moisture from this system starts to move into western Montana 
Thursday. 


The Thursday system is forecast to bring rain and high elevation 
snow showers, with breezy southwest winds across much of the area. 
Showers with possible thunder is forecast for southwest Montana and 
central Idaho along the Bitterroot Mountains. The cool and wet 
pattern will continue through the weekend and into early next 
week. Some showers could produce heavier precipitation with a 
colder airmass late Sunday into Monday, resulting in snow levels 
dropping to the middle slopes around 4500ft. 


&& 


Aviation...the weather system that brought gusty winds, rain & 
snow and scattered thunderstorms to the area will be moving into 
central Montana by 22/0300z causing shower activity to wane. Mountain 
obscurations will continue through tonight due to westerly flow 
keeping upslope showers in place. There will be somewhat drier air 
moving in aloft after 22/0800z which could help improve ceilings 
especially across central Idaho and areas west of the Continental 
Divide. Considering all the rainfall that fell and some clearing 
tonight, the chance for fog exists. There may be too much of a 
southerly breeze to form widespread fog from kgpi to kbtm, but 
confidence is higher that ksmn could see better development 
overnight tonight. VFR conditions are expected to develop on 
Wednesday at all the terminals. With increasing flow aloft, there 
could be weak to moderate mountain wave activity across the 
Continental Divide especially towards the Canadian border on 
Wednesday. 


&& 


Mso watches/warnings/advisories... 
Montana...Winter Weather Advisory until 6 am MDT Wednesday above 6000 feet 
for The Butte/Blackfoot region. 


Winter Weather Advisory until 6 am MDT Wednesday above 5000 feet 
for the Bitterroot/Sapphire Mountains.
