National Weather Service Missoula Montana 
259 PM MDT Friday Jul 3 2015 


Discussion....discussion...today will be another hot, dry day. Temperatures 
10 to 15 degrees above average will be common. The hottest 
locations will be in the canyons of north central Idaho, including 
Orofino, Slate Creek, and Hells Canyon. Other than the hot 
temperatures, and some breezy afternoon winds, a few high clouds 
with cumulus along The Divide can be expected. 


Independence day will still be warm, but a few degrees cooler than 
Saturday. Windier conditions are expected as the pressure 
gradient tightens in advance of an approaching front. This front, 
along with antecedent dry conditions, will continue to raise fire 
weather concerns. During the evening, the front itself will push 
west over The Divide, bringing showers, thunderstorms, and 
easterly winds to northwest Montana. This front will progress to 
the west overnight, causing Sunday to be a notably cooler day. 
North central Idaho will largely miss out on the cool down, since 
the front stalls out near the Montana/Idaho border. Despite Sunday 
being cooler for Montana, temperatures will still be near average 
for the time of the year, as we have been well above normal for 
some time now. Thunderstorms will become an additional threat for 
western Montana on Sunday, but models disagree on exactly how far 
west the storms will reach. Currently, locations east of the 
Bitterroot Range look to have the best shot for afternoon 
thunderstorms. 


Next week looks to remain warmer than average, around 5 to 10 
degrees above average, but not as hot as the previous week. 
Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon thunderstorms are again possible. 
Past mid-week, the ridge attempts to stay over the area, which 
would mean continued mid-Summer like conditions. 




&& 


Aviation...a weak shortwave will pass through northwest Montana 
today with a few cumulus build-ups possible along The Divide. 
Wildfire smoke will again move into kbtm this morning with some 
impact to visibility through the morning. The rest of north 
central Idaho and western Montana will have a few passing clouds, 
very warm temperatures, and high density altitudes. Normal 
afternoon winds can also be expected today. 


High pressure will begin to flatten on Saturday, so afternoon 
winds will be stronger than previous days. There will also be a 
shortwave to pass along The Divide late in the day of July 4th, 
that will help kick off thunderstorms along The Divide, and 
especially Through Glacier National Park. Gusty easterly winds 
will also develop through western Montana Saturday night into 
Sunday.
