..more heat into Saturday.... 


Discussion...sunny, warm conditions with some afternoon cumulus 
will be the weather experienced by most today as the regions 
continues to sit underneath an upper level ridge. Those near 
Glacier National Park and surrounding communities may see an 
afternoon shower or thunderstorm, but these storms will not be 
widespread, and very little precipitation is expected west of The 
Divide. Winds will generally be from northwest, and will be breezy 
this afternoon, with gusts to 25 mph. Overnight winds will shift 
and become easterly as a surface high pressure slides southward 
east of The Divide. 


As we move into the late week, temperatures will continue to rise 
and again approach record values on Friday. Those in north central 
Idaho, including Orofino, Slate Creek, and Riggins will see 
triple digit temperatures both Thursday and Friday. Those with 
outdoor plans should be careful to stay hydrated and try to limit 
time in the sun. 


On Saturday, a system east of The Divide will tighten the pressure 
gradient and cause windy conditions (winds from the west) for 
western Montana. North central Idaho will see lighter winds. 
Following the afternoon winds, rain showers will likely spread 
along The Divide, especially near Glacier National Park. This 
system will bring a strong surface high pressure east of The 
Divide, and winds are again expected to shift to easterly. Locally 
strong east to northeast winds are possible in some of the 
typically channeled valley wind locations (columbia falls, 
Kalispell Airport, Helmville, Hellgate to name a few) Saturday 
night and early Sunday. 


The ridge of high pressure rebuilds again next week, and the 
general pattern will again be above average temperatures with 
slight chances for afternoon showers as weak systems move through 
the flow. 


&& 


Aviation...breezy northwest winds gusting to around 20 kts will 
affect kmso and kbtm this afternoon. Skies will be mostly sunny 
with cumulus across the area, with kgpi being the only site with a 
small chance of an evening shower. Kgpi will be less windy this 
afternoon, but will see an increase in northeast winds overnight. 
Kbtm and kmso Wills also see a shift to southeast winds after 
02/0600z.

Mso watches/warnings/advisories... 
Montana...none. 
Idaho...heat advisory from 2 PM Thursday to 8 PM PDT Friday lower Hells
