..significant mountain snows above 4500 feet this weekend... 


Discussion...a ridge of high pressure will continue over the 
region tonight. Inversions, cold pools, and fog are anticipated 
to be a bit stronger tonight in the lower valleys. Valley 
inversions will persist through the mid morning hours. The ridge 
of high pressure will be shoved eastward as a low pressure system 
amplifies and moves toward the northwest coast. The resultant warm 
southwest flow will erode inversions and allow the atmosphere to 
mix, resulting in temperatures 10 degrees warmer than today, 
hovering around 60. 


The big weather maker is still on track to impact the northern 
rockies midday Saturday through Sunday. A closed low will move 
through the region and bring abundant precipitation, with snow 
above 4500 feet. The majority of accumulating snow is expected 
between late Saturday afternoon through late morning/early 
afternoon Sunday. This is the first widespread major snow event 
this winter, so be sure to prepare for very wintry conditions in 
the areas noted above. 


Some impacts from this system include: 


1. Difficult travel over mountain passes, especially Lolo, lost 
trail, Homestake, McDonald, and marias. 


2. For higher terrain: snow amounts of 4-8 inches will be common, with 
locally higher amounts expected. 


3. High elevation valleys in southwest Montana, specifically 
Butte, Anaconda, Georgetown Lake, Phillipsburg will be impacted 
with accumulating snows. Amounts of 2-5 inches are possible. 


4. Outdoor activities, hunting, or late season hiking may be 
downright miserable at times. 


Heavier snow will quickly turn to lighter snow showers as this 
winter system moves east. Most of the precipitation will diminish 
Sunday evening as a weak ridge re-enters the region through 
Monday. 


Next week will remain fairly cool, cloudy, and rainy at times. 
The northern rockies will remain in a somewhat steady area of 
moisture being ushered inland from the Pacific Ocean. While not 
every day is expected to be dreary, rainfall will be more common 
than sunshine, especially across northwest Montana. Locations in south 
central Idaho, such as Salmon and Leadore, should see less rain 
than most other locations in the region. 


&& 


Aviation...high and mid level clouds will continue to stream 
across the region into Friday under a southwest flow aloft. 
Moist low-level conditions in the valleys will lead to patchy fog 
and low clouds, causing reduced visibilities and periodic low 
ceilings at kgpi and possibly kmso from late this evening through 
mid-morning on Friday. Conditions will begin to improve around 
Friday mid-morning. Elsewhere, partly cloudy skies and light 
winds will continue into Friday afternoon. Light rain will be on 
the increase across far northwest Montana and north-central Idaho 
on Friday evening ahead of the weekend winter storm.
