NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Missoula Montana 
243 PM MDT Friday Oct 31 2014 


..difficult travel over passes Saturday evening and Sunday... 


Discussion...confidence is high for a very wet storm system to 
move through the entire northern rockies Saturday afternoon 
through Sunday. Model solutions have come into pretty good 
agreement on placement and timing of this storm. While 
precipitation will occur everywhere the focus of the heaviest 
precipitation has shifted a bit further to the north and west. 
About the only uncertainty that remains is snow levels and the 
timing of when they will lower. That will be a crucial deciding 
factor for how much snow may occur in the mountains and passes. 
Current thinking is the heaviest precipitation will fall Saturday 
evening through Sunday morning. Impacts and timing 


1. Accumulating snow over all mountain passes impacting travel. 
Heaviest snow amounts will occur over Lost Trail Pass with 6-10" 
possible. Amounts of other passes are uncertain at this time due 
to timing of lowering snow levels. 


2. Significant rain amounts in the valleys of west central and 
southwest Montana. Total rainfall amounts of .50" to 1.0" are 
possible late Saturday through Sunday. 


3. Accumulating snows over higher elevation valleys in southwest 
Montana especially impacting Georgetown Lake with Phillipsburg and 
Butte receiving lighter snow amounts. 


Next week another pretty wet storm system will impact the region 
Tuesday and Wednesday. The flow from this system will be mainly 
westerly and warm which will typically impact mountainous 
locations across the region. 




&& 


Aviation...clouds will steadily increase and lower across the 
northern rockies tonight. Precipitation is not anticipated to 
impact any terminals until Saturday afternoon/evening.
