NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Missoula Montana 
301 PM MDT Friday Oct 24 2014 


Discussion...cloudy skies and light rain showers over the region 
will slowly move north through the night as high pressure and 
warmer air develop into the region. Saturday will be a spectacular 
day for this late in October, a great day for outdoor activities. 
It will be very warm with many areas reaching the mid 60s, even 
higher in some areas. Enjoy it because another strong weather 
disturbance will quickly move into the region late Saturday 
through Monday. A couple of big impacts from this system. 


1. Strong winds in mountains and in Grangeville and the Camas 
Prairie. 


Tightening pressure gradients Sunday in conjunction with a strong 
south to north jet will be the ingredients for windy conditions. 
First, downsloping conditions will produce 20-30 mph winds with 
gusts in the 40s in Grangeville and the Camas Prairie. Second, 
open areas and ridgetops of central Idaho and the Bitterroot 
Mountains may experience gusts to 60 mph. 


2. Mountain snow Sunday and Sunday night. Mountain passes may 
receive a few inches of accumulating snows. 


Plenty of moisture and westerly winds will produce favorable 
conditions for mountain rain and snow (orographic lift). Snow 
levels will lower during the day Sunday to around 4000-4500 feet 
through Monday. Mountainous areas above 4500 feet could receive 
2-4 inches (more at the highest elevations) of snow during this 
period. People with outdoor activities or hunters take precaution 
as confidence is increasing for accumulating snows. 


Unsettled weather looks to continue for at least the first part of 
next week. Showers will likely continue into early Monday, 
especially over the mountains. Snow levels will bottom out Monday 
morning, with a few Bitterroot valley flakes not out of the 
question. Showers should taper off by the afternoon with some 
partial clearing as the trough exits. 


Another wet weather disturbance takes aim at the Pacific northwest around 
Tuesday. Gusty southwest winds will develop once again, and snow 
levels look to rise as warmer air moves in. Central Idaho will 
have the best chance of heavier rain, with lesser chances further 
East. Pass-level snow is not expected as snow levels look to rise 
above passes. 


Drier weather is possible for the latter half of the week with 
some ridging building in. Models are trending towards a more 
amplified pattern overall, which would result in a longer break 
in the active weather lasting through around Halloween. 


&& 


Aviation...a warm front is moving south to north across the 
northern rockies. Winds will be light with this front. The 
expected impacts at area terminals are lower ceilings with light 
rain and mountain obscurations. Kbtm will see shower chances 
diminish this afternoon, with kmso and kgpi being affected this 
afternoon and evening. Clearing skies from south to north will 
occur tonight into tomorrow. 


&& 


Mso watches/warnings/advisories... 
Montana...none. 
Idaho...Wind Advisory from 1 PM Saturday to 5 am PDT Sunday 
Orofino/Grangeville region.
