NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Missoula Montana 
411 am MDT Friday Oct 31 2014 


..significant mountain snows above 4500 feet this weekend... 


Discussion...the lowest parts of the atmosphere remain quite 
saturated across the area this morning and thus fog and low 
clouds are expected to persist through much of the morning. Some 
reductions in visibility will be possible during the morning 
commute so please plan accordingly. 


The well-advertised upcoming storm system can be seen well off 
the West Coast this morning. Over the next twenty-four hours it 
is forecast to move inland and across northern California into 
northern Nevada. But beyond this point the track starts to become 
less certain. The NAM and European model (ecmwf) both continue to trend westward 
with the upper-level features and attendant heavy precipitation. 
This westerly track is also concerning since the models are 
subsequently bringing additional warm air into southwest Montana 
late Saturday afternoon, effectively keeping the snow level higher 
than previously forecast. 


Meanwhile, the GFS model is showing a weaker, faster moving 
storm (though with less of a westerly jog). It also appears to 
bring in more warm air Saturday afternoon into the early evening 
hours. Considering this agreement of the models, we have decided 
to start the Winter Storm Watch at 00z Sunday and have changed it 
to be for locations above 4500ft (which was where the previously 
issued watch was already focused). 


We have also adjusted the heaviest precipitation to be focused a 
bit more into west central Montana and along the Idaho/Montana 
border in accordance with the model trends. There is high 
confidence that snow will significantly impact travel on lost 
trail, Bannock, Lemhi and Lolo Pass. However confidence is a bit 
lower for Homestake and MacDonald Pass. Regardless of model, 
significant High Mountain (above pass level) snow is still 
expected to pose a significant hazard to hunters and 
recreationists in the Bitterroot, Sapphire, Anaconda, Flint 
creek, mission and Swan Mountain ranges. 


Heavier snow will quickly turn to lighter snow showers as this 
winter system moves east. Most of the precipitation will diminish 
Sunday evening as a weak ridge builds over the region through 
Monday. 


Next week will remain fairly cool, cloudy, and rainy at times as the 
northern rockies remains in a generally steady stream of moisture 
moving inland from the Pacific Ocean. While not every day is 
expected to be dreary, rainfall will be more common than sunshine, 
especially across northwest Montana. Locations in south central Idaho 
such as Salmon and Leadore meanwhile will have a much lesser 
chance of precipitation. Snow levels look to be generally higher 
than this weekend's storm, near pass level early in the week, then 
rising above passes by later in the week. 


&& 


Aviation...moist low-level conditions in the valleys will lead 
to patchy fog and low clouds this morning, causing reduced 
visibilities and periodic low ceilings at kgpi and kmso. 
Conditions will begin to improve by mid-morning. Elsewhere, 
partly cloudy skies and light winds will continue. Light rain 
will be on the increase across far northwest Montana and north- 
central Idaho by this evening ahead of a winter storm arriving for 
the weekend.

Mso watches/warnings/advisories... 
Montana...Winter Storm Watch from Saturday evening through Sunday 
afternoon above 4500 feet for the Bitterroot/Sapphire 
Mountains...Butte/Blackfoot region...Potomac/Seeley Lake 
region...West Glacier region. 


Idaho...Winter Storm Watch from Saturday evening through Sunday 
afternoon above 4500 feet for the eastern Lemhi County... 
southern Clearwater Mountains...western Lemhi County.
