NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Missoula Montana 
429 am MST Friday Jan 30 2015 




Discussion...a ridge of high pressure will continue to be the 
dominant feature over the northern rockies today causing another 
morning of fog. The valleys of northwest Montana and north central 
Idaho is once again experiencing widespread fog with a few 
locations being dense. The fog is expected to diminish by late 
morning and early afternoon, but strong valley inversions will 
keep warming fairly minimal today. 


A weak disturbance is still anticipated to drop out of Alberta 
Canada on Saturday which will cause the upper level flow to become 
more northwesterly in nature. This feature will cause light snow 
to areas along the Continental Divide, particularly Glacier 
National Park. A cooler modified-Arctic airmass looks to spill 
westward across The Divide and into western Montana Saturday into 
Saturday night. 


On Sunday, the upper level pattern begins to transition to 
westerly flow. This pattern will allow a plume of moisture to 
make its way towards the northern rockies. By Sunday afternoon, 
many locations across northwest Montana, Clearwater and Idaho 
counties should be experiencing widespread precipitation. The 
cooler airmass could cause minor travel impacts with light snow 
accumulations for much of western Montana, as well as some higher 
elevations of central Idaho. 


For Monday night through early Wednesday, confidence is 
increasing for another shot of widespread precipitation. Some of 
the forecast details remain hazy however as models continue to 
change their minds with the handling of colder air backed up east 
of The Divide. The latest models are no longer showing the cold 
air spilling through our area Monday, but remaining east of The 
Divide. This is in contrast to yesterday when they showed a 
potential overrunning situation with impactful snow for much of 
western Montana. If instead warmer air moves in aloft as models 
indicate this morning, we could be looking at a complicated wintry 
mix situation, mostly for western Montana. If colder air spills 
through the area, widespread snow to valley floors is possible. In 
summary, confidence is high for a wetter period but low for type 
and amount of precipitation. Higher elevations will almost 
certainly see several rounds of a few inches of snow, with 
possible travel impacts as a result. 


Weak ridging over the northern rockies should bring quieter 
weather midweek, though lingering showers cannot be ruled out 
(mostly over the higher terrain). Wet weather could return by late 
next week, though forecast confidence is limited at this time as 
models are struggling to figure out when and how much the ridge 
will flatten to allow wetter weather to reach our doorstep. 


Aviation...fog has once again developed in the valleys of 
northwest Montana and north central Idaho this morning, especially 
at kgpi. The fog will be dense at times, but is anticipated to 
start dissipating after 30/1300z. The low level moisture at ksmn 
has lifted to a fairly low stratus deck tonight. This stratus will 
linger across valley until early afternoon. Kmso could once again 
experience patchy shallow fog during the early morning hours.
