National Weather Service Missoula Montana 
345 am MDT Sat Apr 30 2016 


Discussion...a broad trough continues to linger over the majority 
of the United States as an embedded weak low circulates over the 
northern rockies. This feature will continue to cause light 
precipitation through the day. The current focus of precipitation 
is moving through southwest and west central Montana. This band 
of precipitation will drift to the west then become widespread 
convective showers by the afternoon. An isolated thunderstorm 
could develop across southwest Montana and Lemhi County this 
afternoon. Another area of precipitation is currently over 
eastern Washington and will migrate southward into portions of 
north central Idaho. Temperatures for today should be running near 
normal for most locations. The exception will be southwest Montana 
into Lemhi County where temperatures appear to be 5 to 10 degrees 
below normal. 


Showers should be steadily diminishing through out the night 
tonight. The models are indicating that easterly winds could mix 
down to surface over Flathead Lake this evening creating gusty and 
choppy conditions. Wind gusts up to 30 mph will be possible during 
the evening hours, impacting boaters on the lake. 


High pressure will steadily become the dominant feature over the 
northern rockies on Sunday through the first part of the week. 
This ridge will cause a drying and warming trend for the region. 
Temperatures should be running 5-10 degrees above normal by Monday 
afternoon. 


An upper level trough approaching the Pacific northwest will 
increase southwesterly flow Tuesday-Thursday allowing warm 
temperatures to continue with highs well into the 70s and low 80s 
for many valley locations. Moisture will also be on the increase 
for a growing threat of showers and thunderstorms, especially 
Wednesday into Thursday. 


The main energy with the trough will drop down the West Coast then 
slowly push through the Desert Southwest Friday into next weekend. 
This will leave the northern rockies in easterly flow leading to 
seasonably cool temperatures and showery conditions. 


&& 


Aviation...a swath of light precipitation will continue to move 
through southwest and west central Montana this morning. This 
precipitation will cause low ceilings especially at kmso and kbtm 
through mid morning. Then the precipitation will become widespread 
convection by the afternoon. A low threat exists for thunderstorms 
near ksmn and kbtm during the late afternoon and early evening 
time frame.
