NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Missoula Montana 
354 am MDT Tuesday Apr 21 2015 


Discussion...today will be the warmest day of the week as the 
high pressure ridge shifts directly over the northern rockies. 
There will be a bit more afternoon cloudiness as mid level 
moisture gradually increases across the area and interacts with 
fairly impressive daytime heating for this time of year. In fact, 
a few isolated thunderstorms may form as temperature reach some 10 
to 15 degrees above normal. But these will largely remain locked 
over the terrain, given the extremely weak steering winds. 


However this all appears to change on Wednesday as a rather 
strong and significantly colder cut of low pressure system drifts 
into Washington and towards Montana. The passage of a very slow 
moving cold front ahead of this upper low will team with peak 
heating to produce widespread showers and thunderstorms across 
much of the northern rockies. The focus of storms will start 
along the Bitterroot Mountains and unhurriedly shift east across 
the rest of western and southwest Montana Wednesday evening. 
Although severe weather is not expected, those with outdoor plans 
should prepare to encounter lightning, wind gusts to 45 mph, and 
pea sized hail with some storms. Farther north, boaters on 
Flathead Lake are likely to contend with early afternoon winds 
gusting 20 to 25 mph before showers and thunderstorms ultimately 
impact the lake later in the day. 


Models continue to struggle with the path and strength of the 
cut-off low as it exits into Canada. General logic with these 
types of features would support a slower passage and thus, have 
lingered precipitation chances well into Thursday, especially 
across northwest Montana. However, this forecast may ultimately 
prove too pessimistic if the low moves faster into Canada, 
resulting in a much nicer day. Either way, models agree that a 
more showery regime will be in place across the area on Friday 
through Sunday, with chances generally increasing each day. 


Beyond the weekend, models are struggling to depict the overall 
pattern, so have maintained the consensus of most likely 
solutions which supports unsettled conditions continuing into next 
week. 


&& 


Aviation...a warm and pleasant day is expected yet again today as 
the apex of the high pressure ridge moves directly over the 
northern rockies. Light and variable (and most likely terrain- 
driven, overall) winds should once again be anticipated after 
21/2100z. Otherwise, stable and dry conditions will persist once 
more.
