NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Missoula Montana 
401 am MST Tuesday Mar 3 2015 


Discussion...the weather disturbance that ushered in a colder 
Arctic air mass and associated snow and blowing snow yesterday has 
moved out of most of the northern rockies. There are still some 
snow showers lingering in southwest Montana and Lemhi County but 
these will exit the region by mid morning. 


Impacts from this system will continue through the mid morning 
hours as east to northeast winds will produce cold wind chills at 
or below zero. Morning travel may be difficult in a few areas as 
web cams indicate several roads snowpacked and slick where heavier 
amounts of snow (2-5 inches) fell last evening. 


Dry conditions with clearing skies will occur during the afternoon 
hours under a dry northwesterly flow pattern. 


A prolonged dry period is expected through the remainder of the 
week into this weekend. Temperatures will gradually increase to 
normal readings by Thursday and at or above normal readings into 
the lower 50s this weekend. The only potential for an shower 
activity is Friday along the Canadian border and Glacier np. 
However confidence is pretty low for this. Even if a few showers 
develop, impacts will be very low. 


&& 


Aviation...the gusty winds are on the decrease this morning and 
will continue to decrease throughout the day today. Scattered 
light snow showers will linger at kbtm through mid morning, which 
will cause reduced visbilities and mountain obscurations. 
Elsewhere, cloud cover will continue to decrease through the day 
as drier air moves in.
