NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Missoula Montana

..wind and snow impact for northwest Montana on Friday... 


Discussion... 


Model guidance weather characterization for the next week has 
shifted significantly during the past day. As a result, there are 
some weather impacts to discuss for this forecast period. 


Impact - Friday - wind/snow - west central and northwest Montana 


Most models agree that a vigorous Pacific storm system will 
intensify further along the border with Canada on Friday. Winds 
ahead and behind a surface cold front will likely be gusty, 
impacting motorists and boaters on Flathead Lake. The wind impact 
upon Flathead Lake will be most noteworthy, with gusts 30-40 mph 
possible and waves reaching 3-5 feet across the open water. 


Considering the intensification and closed low pressure 
circulation anticipated to develop with this Pacific system as it 
reaches the Continental Divide, the snowfall over mountain passes 
may become significant for this time of year. 3-6 inches snow 
accumulation over Marias Pass, including some blowing snow, will 
create hazardous travel conditions Friday morning through Friday 
evening. 


Breezy conditions will redevelop on Saturday and Sunday across the 
northern rockies, as another fast-moving Pacific storm system 
grazes northwest Montana. Wind gusts will be somewhat weaker than 
those on Friday, however still plenty strong to increase wave 
activity on Flathead Lake. Most of the precipitation with the 
weekend system will remain over the mountains of northwest 
Montana, however a few sprinkles at low elevations are not 
completely out of the question. 


Relatively dry and warm conditions appear to prevail Sunday 
evening through Monday evening, with high pressure returning to 
the region. 


Forecast confidence GOES off a cliff from Tuesday through Thursday 
next week. All global weather models are depicting a broad and 
far-reaching low pressure circulation developing over the northern 
rockies and then intensifying east of the Continental Divide. The 
weather scenario itself is not necessary unbelievable, however the 
anomalously cold air depicted over much of the western US appears 
much more extreme than a mere day ago. The current forecast 
reflects the trend of this extreme forecast, however not nearly as 
extreme in terms of cold or precipitation chances. Mountain passes 
are likely to be impacted with snow covered roads at some point 
during the latter half of next week, however specific timing is 
unclear at this time. 


&& 


Aviation...current water vapor loops clearly depict the next 
weather system moving onto the West Coast. Cloud cover ahead of this 
system will continue to obscure terrain and rain will further lower 
the ceilings through the Idaho Panhandle and into northwest 
Montana. Precipitation will expand through north central Idaho and 
western Montana this evening and overnight as a cold front 
approaches and passes. Gusty west winds can be expected with the 
frontal passage mainly overnight and early Friday morning. The 
main trough will reside over the region on Friday, so showers and 
terrain obscurations are going to remain common through Friday 
afternoon.
