NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Missoula Montana 
402 am MDT Thu Apr 24 2014 


Discussion...a push of moisture and instability are working their 
way across central Washington/Oregon this morning. Many weather 
stations under its path are showing fairly continuous light to 
moderate rainfall with High Mountain snow falling and the radar/ 
satellite trends support numerical model data which show this 
activity over central Idaho and western Montana today where it 
will produce a similar spread of precipitation. Heaviest amounts 
can be expected over the complex terrain in central Idaho and 
along the Idaho/Montana border as well as across much of northwest 
Montana, all locations which are highly favored for enhanced up- 
slope precipitation in westerly flow aloft. Model instability 
parameters suggest a progressively growing chance for 
thunderstorms throughout the afternoon. However there are many 
negating factors (cold surface temps, lack of sunshine, little 
upper level jet support) which will limit the potential to, at 
best, a slight chance of a thunderstorm or two. 


Tonight the flow begins to take more of a southerly orientation 
which will effectively reduce the chances for precipitation across 
northwest Montana while maintaining chances over central Idaho 
across in west central Montana (including Missoula/Bitterroot 
valley). Models are all showing a disturbance ejecting through the 
flow on Friday which could produce some heavier rain showers and 
perhaps a slight chance for a few lightning strikes Friday 
afternoon over central/southwest Montana. 


Saturday through Monday...a broad, cool trough of low pressure 
will reside over the northern rockies region and provide US with 
a moist, unstable environment. The best chance of significant 
precipitation will occur Friday night and Saturday as a mid-level 
circulation migrates northward through Montana and into Canada. 
The upper trough will linger across the region Sunday, before 
shifting east of the Continental Divide during the day Monday. The 
atmosphere will be cool enough for snow in the mountains and 
potentially some wet snow (or rain/snow mix) in the valleys of 
western Montana during the night and early morning hours. Little, 
if any, appreciable accumulations of snow are expected in the 
valleys except for maybe grassy areas. However, mountain passes 
will likely see some minor accumulations on Road surface during 
the night and morning hours making driving conditions a little 
slick. Showers will be tapering off later Monday as a ridge of 
high pressure nudges in from the west. 


Tuesday through Wednesday...medium range models continue to 
develop a large scale ridge of high pressure centered either 
along the West Coast or over the Pacific northwest. Idaho and 
western Montana will be on the eastern edge of this ridge feature 
with some degree of a northerly flow over our region. Warmer and 
drier weather is still in the forecast, but will wait to see if 
the ridge axis shifts further east to help bolster confidence for 
a warm, dry forecast. 


&& 


Aviation...rain showers will become more numerous throughout the 
day, especially near kmso and kgpi where ceilings will be lowest 
and visibility may at times be hampered. Gusty winds will once 
again develop this afternoon, being strongest near showers. Winds 
and precipitation will begin to subside around sunset. 


&& 


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