NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Missoula Montana 
302 PM MDT Tue Jul 29 2014 


Discussion...scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms will 
continue through this evening across parts of the northern 
rockies. This is especially so for Lemhi County, southwest Montana 
(butte area) and along the Continental Divide. The key threat will 
be heavy rain from storms with extremely slow storm motion that 
may produce urban, small stream or even flash flooding. These 
storms should show signs of diminishing shortly after sunset. 


Another round of afternoon/evening showers and thunderstorms will 
develop on Wednesday as an upper level disturbance (presently 
tracking through Nevada and northern california) makes its way 
across Idaho and Montana. Again the chief threat will be for heavy 
rain from slow moving thunderstorms which could result in similar 
flooding threats to perhaps a more widespread area. Those living 
near recent wildfire burn scars, narrow canyons, urban areas with 
poor drainage or other typically flood prone locations should be 
on the lookout for approaching storms and have a plan in place to 
avoid the dangers of flooding. 


Yet another weather feature is forecast to move around the ridge 
of high pressure and approach the northern rockies on Friday. This 
impulse appears to originate from the remnants of what was once 
Tropical Storm Hernan (now an extra-tropical cyclone) over the 
eastern Pacific. The global models (gfs & ecmwf) are having 
trouble showing consistency with this feature, largely due to the 
complexities associated with the transition from tropical to 
extra-tropical and thus we approach the forecast for Friday and 
Friday night with some caution. Either way, a modest push of 
monsoonal moisture is likely to occur Friday into Saturday and 
could result in heavier precipitation. But how widespread and 
strong will largely depend upon where this feature tracks, 
something we hope to hone in on with upcoming model runs. 


A hot weekend with afternoon thunderstorms appears at hand as 
monsoonal moisture and waves of instability stream into the 
northern rockies. This trend seems likely to continue even into 
next week. 


&& 


Aviation...the afternoon and evening thunderstorm threat will be 
mostly at ksmn and kbtm. Breezy north winds are possible at kmso 
and kgpi late this afternoon as well. Conditions will clear out 
after sunset with winds diminishing area-wide.

Mso watches/warnings/advisories... 
Montana...none. 
Idaho...Fire Weather Watch from Wednesday afternoon through Wednesday 
evening eastern Lemhi County...southern Clearwater 
Mountains...western Lemhi County.
