NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Missoula Montana 
257 PM MST Friday Nov 21 2014 


..mountain snow and valley mixed precipitation tonight... 


..Gusty winds with rain and snow on Saturday... 


Discussion... 


The next moist weather system is moving through Washington this 
afternoon and will arrive in Idaho and western Montana this 
evening. Light snow will begin to fall at elevations above around 
4500 feet with rain or a mix of rain and snow below. Many valley 
locations that have remained cool have a chance for a light 
rain/snow mix to potentially freeze on surfaces overnight 
including Kalispell, Missoula, Libby, and points between. Snow 
over mountain passes will increase in intensities overnight with 
the heaviest snow anticipated with the cold front. The front is 
forecast to pass at lookout and Lolo passes Saturday morning and 
lost trail, Homestake, MacDonald, and Gilmore Summit through the 
afternoon. Gusty winds will also develop with the cold front 
mainly south of I-90 with gusts as high as 50 mph. Snow showers 
will continue through Saturday overnight especially in north 
central Idaho and Lolo/lost trail passes. 


Another weather disturbance arriving Sunday morning will generate 
additional snowfall across much of the region with activity 
lasting into the evening hours. In fact, some mountain locations 
will continue to experience snow showers well into Monday. Winds 
will be lighter compared to those anticipated on Saturday but 
Mountain Pass snowfall amounts will be similar. Additionally, snow 
levels will lower to valley bottoms on Sunday with 1-2 inches of 
snowfall possible for many valley areas. Some indicators are 
suggesting a chance of snow bands setting up over western Montana 
on Monday morning, which could impact the morning commute. 


Cool and unsettled conditions will prevail early next week with 
forecast models advertising fairly widespread mountain snow and a 
valley rain/snow mix on Tuesday. Models are now trending toward a 
Dry Ridge of high pressure moving overhead Wednesday into 
Thanksgiving, which is the complete opposite of what some model 
runs indicated earlier in the week. So basically, the forecast for 
Thanksgiving Holiday travel across western Montana and north 
central Idaho has improved but the potential for wintry weather 
still can't be ruled out at this point.

Aviation...scattered low stratus and low-level haze with embedded 
sprinkles and flurries will be present across the northern rockies 
airspace through this evening (22/0300z). Thereafter, snow and 
wind will begin to impact the region, lowering ceiling, reducing 
visibility at times in snow and blowing snow, and even contain a 
few pockets of freezing rain. Ksmn is the most likely terminal to 
experience freezing rain (through 22/1200z), however the 
likelihood is fairly low. Otherwise and elsewhere, low 
visibilities and low ceilings will be present at times through 
22/1500z. From here forward, low valleys will experience windier 
conditions, combining with rising ceilings and fewer instances of 
low visibility. Wind gusts to 30 knots will be present at times 
at all area terminals throughout Saturday.
