NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Missoula Montana 
356 am MST Sat Feb 6 2016 


Discussion...our next system has begun to impact portions of the 
northern rockies overnight. A tight southwesterly pressure 
gradient has developed early this morning producing gusty 
southwest winds. Due to this, many valleys of western Montana and 
central Idaho have been shadowed out with the onset of 
precipitation. Also, the southwest winds have begun to warm many 
valleys to above freezing, so what precipitation does fall will be 
in the form of rain, or a mix of rain/snow. The mountains and 
mountain passes along the Idaho/Montana border have been getting moderate 
snow the past few hours, which will continue off and on for the 
rest of the day. Several inches of snow is still expected to fall, 
especially for lookout, Lolo, and marias passes. Due to this, 
winter weather advisories remain in place. 


After the cold front passes through western Montana later this 
morning and early afternoon, snow levels will crash to many valley 
floors. Atmospheric profiles continue to show the potential for 
snow bands developing later this afternoon and persisting into the 
late evening. Forecasting exactly where these bands develop is 
challenging, however, high resolution models are beginning to show 
a number of bands developing somewhere between the mission and 
Bitterroot valleys and eastern Idaho County of Idaho. If one of 
these bands develop and you travel into one, you will experience 
drastically changing Road conditions in a very short distance. 
Very heavy snow will greatly reduce visibility, and accumulate on 
roadways in a short period of time. Monitor our webpage 
www.Weather.Gov/Missoula for further updates. 


High pressure is still on track to move into the region beginning 
Sunday, but the Main Ridge will not reach Idaho and western 
Montana until around Monday. Valley inversions are forecast to 
become common, while under the stable high pressure pattern, which 
is expected for much of the coming week. Air quality in the 
valleys of north central Idaho and western Montana will likely 
become degraded through this week as particulates buildup in the 
stable valley air. The stable pattern may also lead to fog or low 
cloud cover development. Locations that do develop fog or 
persistent cloud cover will likely not be as cold as the current 
forecast. 


There are signs that the ridge will begin to break down near the 
end of the week or during the upcoming weekend. Precipitation 
chances are in the forecast to account for the potential for weak 
shortwave passages especially during the weekend.

Aviation...our next weather system has begun pushing into the 
northern rockies overnight. Moderate snow is falling in the higher 
elevations along the Montana/Idaho border, and will continue for much of 
the day. Gusty southwest winds will primarily shadow out aviation 
terminals in western Montana and central ID, until the front passes. 
Frontal passage is expected to be around 06/1600z for kmso and 
kgpi. A brief period of rain/snow mix with gusty southwest winds 
approaching 20-25kts will be possible with the front. Snow levels 
will crash to valley floors behind the front, along with the 
potential for the development of snow bands after 06/1800z and 
possibly persist until 07/0600z. Aviation terminals kmso and kgpi 
will be at risk of seeing these bands, which will greatly reduce 
visibility and accumulate a few inches of snow in a short period 
of time. High resolution models are showing the potential for 
these snow bands in the Missoula and Bitterroot valleys but the 
exact locations are still uncertain.
