NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Missoula Montana 
247 PM MDT Thu Apr 24 2014 


Discussion...an upper level wave will move across central Idaho 
into western Montana this afternoon through this evening. This 
feature will be responsible for scattered rain and snow showers, 
some of which could have an embedded thunderstorm. Expect an 
occasional lightning strike, gusty winds and pea-size hail with 
these storms. Snow will most likely continue at times at area 
passes above 5,000 feet, but will not stick to the Road surfaces. 
There could be some slush at times after the most intense showers 
through the evening. 


A brief respite is on tap tonight through Friday morning across 
northwest Montana before the next system is expected to move in. 
An area of rain and snow is expected tonight across central Idaho 
and the snow level could lower enough to affect whitebird grade on 
US-95. If that happens there could be a period of snow 
there Friday morning with the biggest impact being some slush on 
the roadway melting away by late morning. 


This weekend...another Spring storm system will impact all of the 
northern rockies in some way. A low pressure system will develop 
on the leading edge of an approaching upper level trough from the 
west Friday afternoon. Central Idaho and southwestern Montana will be 
impacted first, with moderate to heavy mountain snow above 5000 
feet, and rain at valley floors. There is also a possibility of a 
few thunderstorms developing in these same locations. The low 
pressure system will then move northeast overnight Friday through 
western Montana and across The Divide near Glacier National Park. 


The higher elevations of central Idaho and southwestern Montana 
including Lolo Pass, MacDonald Pass, and Georgetown Lake, could 
pick up around 3 to 5 inches of snow, by early Saturday morning. 
Areas along the Continental Divide, such as Glacier National Park 
and Marias Pass will be hit the hardest where 6 to 10 inches of 
snow is expected by Sunday morning. All other valley locations in 
western Montana and central Idaho can expect a wide range of rain 
amounts from .30 to .75 inches. 


There is however one scenario that could play out that would give 
extreme northwest Montana such as Lincoln County much more 
precipitation than forecast above, possibly an inch of rain in 
Yaak and Libby. Not to say that this will occur, it's just one 
piece to this complex system. Keep apprised to your local forecast 
for any changes in the coming days. 


Sunday and Monday...some residual showers from an exiting low 
pressure trof are expected across the region Sunday and again 
Monday. However less coverage is anticipated Monday. 


Tuesday through Thursday...mainly dry conditions! Finally a 
break in the wet weather is becoming more apparent for the 
middle of next week. Models are advertising a high pressure 
ridge over the region. There are some disagreements for the 
placement of the ridge, just a bit further west or directly over the 
northern rockies. Either way conditions are expected to be mainly 
dry under this pattern. Above normal temperatures are expected 
Wednesday and Thursday. Normal highs for the end of April are in the 
lower to mid 60s. 




&& 


Aviation...numerous rain showers will persist across the entire 
northern rockies through the evening hours. There will be a brief 
break in the rain before it picks up once again around noon 
Friday. All terminals will be impacted with lowering ceilings, 
reduced visibilities and mountain obscurations. 
&& 


Mso watches/warnings/advisories... 
Montana...none. 
Idaho...none.
