NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Missoula Montana 
315 PM MST sun Dec 21 2014 


Discussion...bands of showers have set up this afternoon mainly 
from I-90 and southward with gusty winds also observed for many 
locations behind this mornings cold front passage. Model soundings 
support that some banding will continue during the overnight hours 
into early Monday morning allowing for the potential of localized 
areas of moderate to heavy snowfall. A weak ripple riding along 
the strong upper level jet will also provide some additional lift 
late tonight into Monday morning. With this in mind, the winter 
weather advisories were left in effect with general additional 
accumulations of 3-6 inches across the higher terrain, although 
higher amounts may occur where snow bands persist. For Lower 
Valley locations, snow levels are expected to drop to valley 
bottoms by Monday morning, thus a trace to 2 inches of snow is 
possible for some valleys especially from I-90 southward. 


Unsettled conditions will continue on Monday but there will be an 
overall decrease in shower activity as the day unfolds. Relatively 
fair weather is anticipated Monday night and Tuesday ahead of the 
mid week weather system but one potential impact would be areas 
of dense fog across favored valleys on Tuesday morning. 


A significant winter storm is still on track to move through the 
region starting on Wednesday. Models are still in disagreement 
however on the placement and the strength of the low pressure 
system. The placement of the surface low will be the key factor 
to determining how much snow valleys will receive. Mountains are 
expected to see snow anywhere from 4 inches to over a foot of snow 
during the Wednesday/Thursday time frame, although the exact 
locations of the mountain snow will depend on the track of the 
system. Nonetheless, all areas should see either rain or snow 
during this period. 


The current forecast reflects the more consistent European model 
which shows a deeper trough over the northern rockies and the 
surface low tracking south of Missoula. In this scenario, many 
valley locations will see periods of moderate snow with 2 to 5 
inches possible Christmas eve into early Christmas day, 
potentially impacting Holiday travel. Due to the large differences 
in models for valley snow amounts, stay tuned to the forecast as 
we gather more details with this system. 


Beyond Christmas, models are trending towards a ridge developing 
over the Gulf of Alaska by this weekend. This set up could allow 
cold air from Canada to move into the region. While the coldest 
air looks to stay east of the Continental Divide at this time, 
colder temperatures should nonetheless be expected late this 
weekend into next week. 




&& 


Aviation...bands of rain/snow showers developed over the terrain 
and will continue to bring showers to kmso and kbtm. Rain showers 
over kmso are expected to transition to snow this evening. Kbtm 
will also see light snow with periods of moderate snow at times. 
Main impacts will be significant reductions in visibility and low 
ceilings under the banded precipitation. Ksmn and kgpi could also 
see a few light showers through the rest of the evening. Another 
wave of moisture is expected to move in later tonight and into 
tomorrow morning.
