NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Missoula Montana 
222 PM MDT Wednesday Apr 1 2015 


..colder nights ahead... 
..Unsettled Holiday weekend weather likely... 


Discussion...an unstable atmosphere today will result in 
numerous snow and graupel showers across central Idaho and western 
Montana. A few of the showers will reduce visibility and possibly 
bring a dusting of snow to grassy surfaces. A few mountain passes 
could see enough snow accumulation to bring temporary slushy 
conditions, but will eventually melt off. Strong gusty winds near 
40 mph are expected along the Continental Divide, including 
MacDonald Pass, while high valleys across southwest Montana could 
see a few gusts to 30 mph. Flathead Lake will see breezy south to 
west winds between 15 to 25 mph through the evening hours. Weather 
models are depicting an upper level wave moving into western 
Montana later this evening and this may help snow showers to 
continue into the overnight. There is the possibility that a few 
places across the Bitterroot valley and surrounding mountains 
could see light snow accumulations...enough to create possible 
slick spots by Thursday morning. 


An cold and unstable atmosphere will continue over north central 
Idaho and western Montana Thursday with another round of scattered 
rain/snow/graupel showers. 


Quite cold temperatures are expected the next few nights with 
Thursday night into early Friday probably being the coldest 
period. Due to March warmth, some early plant development and 
irrigation has started in the lower, typically more mild valleys 
(flathead, mission, Missoula, Bitterroot, Libby, plains/Thompson 
Falls, Orofino, Camas Prairie...to name a few). Temperatures may 
may approach critical levels in some valleys to possibly cause 
local freeze damage where these early Spring vulnerabilities are 
in place. 


Weak high pressure is expected Friday with a relatively drier 
period and some moderation in temperatures, likely to more 
typical values for this time of year. 


For the Holiday weekend, it looks like Saturday through Sunday 
morning will be mostly dry with most locations staying precip- 
free, however central Idaho could see intermittent rain showers 
Saturday afternoon. A more widespread change will take place by Sunday 
afternoon as the next organized area of precipitation affects both 
western Montana and north central Idaho through Monday. Mountain 
snow (including Mountain Pass roadways), valley graupel showers 
mixed with rain at times, and generally cool/unsettled conditions 
should be expected during this time frame. 


&& 


Aviation...unstable conditions have resulted in an increase in 
shower activity across the northern rockies and gusty winds. Winds 
have already been gusting to near 40 knots along the Continental 
Divide between MacDonald Pass and Helena. Expect gusty winds to 
diminish somewhat after 02/0200z. High resolution models show the 
best shower potential to occur from the couer'd Alene mountains 
south and east to the Bitterroot Mountains. The most intense 
showers will contain snow and graupel, especially from 01/2100z 
through 02/0600z. Expect periodic reductions of visibility and 
ceilings with these showers. There is a chance that snow showers 
may linger across the southern Bitterroot Mountains, Hamilton to 
lost trail area, between 02/0600z and 02/1500z but confidence is 
low. More showers are anticipated on Thursday, especially between 
02/1800z and 03/0300z across western Montana.
