NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Missoula Montana 
358 am MST sun Nov 23 2014 


..periods of snow and slick Road conditions today and tonight on 
mountain passes... 


..possible light valley snow tonight... 


Discussion...weak snow bands under northwest flow aloft will 
continue periods of light snow and possibly areas of slick Road 
conditions through this morning. These bands are expected to 
weaken through the morning. Those with travel plans this morning 
should be prepared for changeable Road conditions, especially over 
mountain passes. 


The next in a line of weather disturbances will quickly approach 
western Montana and north central Idaho this afternoon and 
evening. Another round of widespread precipitation will develop, 
first in northwest Montana and the Idaho Panhandle this afternoon, 
sweeping into the rest of central Idaho and west-central/southwest 
Montana this evening. Mountains and mountain passes will be the 
first to be impacted with accumulating snow, once again degrading 
Road conditions. This system does have the potential to produce 
snow down to the valley floors late tonight into Monday morning, 
including for the Missoula/Bitterroot and Flathead/mission 
valleys, which could impact the Monday morning commute. Stay 
tuned! 


A brief dry window is expected on Monday before yet another 
weather disturbance moves into the region beginning Monday night. 
This next system has an impressive moisture tap and could lead to 
significant mountain snowfall, possibly lasting into Wednesday. 
Precipitation type for valley locations will be a bit trickier as 
this system initially starts out cool, but gradually warms with 
time. A period of valley snowfall is possible Monday night into 
Tuesday night, though exact amounts and placement of best valley 
snow will largely depend on how quickly warmer air is able to 
infiltrate. Currently, valleys of northwest Montana stand the best 
chance of measurable snow. 


Forecast models continue to hint at a potentially colder and 
snowy pattern developing late this week. Timing of the cold air 
and possible over-running precipitation varies significantly 
between model solutions, but confidence in this overall pattern 
change is beginning to grow. This period will continue to be 
monitored closely as travel impacts around the Thanksgiving 
Holiday are possible. 




&& 


Aviation...localized snow bands changing over to more widespread 
snow showers after 23/1900z will make for active weather at 
terminals today. Snow accumulations of an inch or so for kgpi and 
kmso are possible by 24/0600z. Kbtm and ksmn should see lighter 
amounts in this time frame, but still enough to make runways 
slick. Snow showers will lower visibilities and ceilings which 
will obscure terrain into Monday morning. West winds in the 5 to 
15 kt range can be expected in the valleys with this system, with 
winds up to 35 kts near ridge tops.
