NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Missoula Montana 
353 am MDT Monday Sep 22 2014 


..very warm Summer-like temperatures through Thursday... 


Discussion...an upper level low has helped to kick off a few 
showers overnight and this morning across southern Lemhi County 
of Idaho and southwestern Montana. This moisture will continue to 
slowly trek north, though shouldn't make it any further north than 
Lost Trail Pass and The Butte area. As the heating of the day 
progresses, the atmosphere will become increasingly unstable and 
a few thunderstorms could develop over the areas mentioned Above. 
All other areas of western Montana and central Idaho will see an 
increase in clouds, with another warm day expected like we saw on 
Sunday. 


Southwesterly flow will develop Tuesday morning and through the 
day on Tuesday. At the same time a weak disturbance will enter 
northwestern Montana producing a few showers Tuesday morning. This 
wave will potentially trigger isolated thunderstorms in the 
afternoon and evening. The best chances for any precipitation will 
be confined along and north of the I-90 corridor. 


The ridge of high pressure will re-amplify Wednesday allowing 
conditions to warm and dry out. In return, some valleys of 
western Montana and central Idaho could see high temperatures 
approaching record highs. Temperatures will feel more like mid 
Summer than early fall. 


Strong southwest flow with well above normal temperatures is expected 
on Thursday. One would expect that in this flow pattern, there 
could be showers & thunderstorms that could develop. All model 
guidance indicate that there is just too much dry air moving in 
from Nevada/California limiting that potential. If any showers or 
isolated storms form, it will occur late Thursday evening mainly 
over central Idaho near the approaching frontal boundary. 


A weak front stalls over the area Friday possibly from a line from 
Elk City, Idaho to Superior, Montana to Kalispell, Montana. There could be 
showers near this frontal boundary and temperatures along and 
behind it will be considerably cooler by as much as 20 degrees 
from central Idaho to northwest Montana. Confidence continues to 
be fair to poor for both precipitation chances and temperatures. 


This weekend & beyond: to give an idea how hard it has been to 
pinpoint a good solution for this weekend...the European model (ecmwf) has the 
upper level storm center over northern California while the GFS is 
over south-central Idaho by Saturday evening. The forecast for 
precipitation has stayed above normal compared with climatology 
while forecast temperatures are generally near normal. Some places 
could be dry and much warmer while others could be wet and much 
cooler across central Idaho and western Montana. As such, 
confidence remains poor. 




&& 


Aviation...an upper level low pressure system has spread a few 
light showers across southern Lemhi County this morning and is 
slowing moving north. Showers should be in the vicinity of ksmn by 
sunrise bringing lowering ceilings and occasional visibility 
reductions. Showers should begin impacting kbtm by late morning 
around 1500-1600z. Later this afternoon the atmosphere will become 
more unstable which could be conducive for a few isolated 
thunderstorms to develop for the same terminals. Gusty erratic 
winds will be possible under and in the vicinity of this storms. 
All other terminals in the region will see an increase of clouds 
with nothing more than the occasional mountain obscuration over 
the higher terrain.
