NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Missoula Montana 
313 PM MDT Tue Jul 22 2014 


Discussion... 


Forecast is still on track for Wednesday with an initial wave of 
thunderstorms this evening/overnight followed by widespread 
thunderstorms Wednesday afternoon. Thunderstorms are expected to 
develop in eastern Oregon this afternoon and will make its way 
into north central Idaho this evening and spread northward 
overnight. An upper level jet streak moving into central Idaho 
tonight will provide additional support for nocturnal convection. 
Main threats with the overnight thunderstorms will be heavy rain, 
gusty winds and small hail. 


A brief break in thunderstorms is expected by late morning 
Wednesday as drier air aloft moves in. This break will be short 
lived as the approaching upper level low pumps moisture into the 
region. Warm surface temperatures combined with the intense 
shortwave trough will provide favorable conditions for widespread 
thunderstorm development and isolated severe storms. Thunderstorms 
are expected to start developing early afternoon along the Idaho 
Panhandle with the threat of thunderstorms propagating eastward 
throughout the afternoon. The area most favorable for severe 
storms Wednesday afternoon looks to be in west central Montana and 
northwest Montana. Isolated severe thunderstorms will be capable 
of producing damaging wind gusts, quarter size hail, and lightning. 
Due to the high amount of available moisture, any thunderstorm 
will bring a threat for flash flooding on recent burn scars. 


A powerful cold front for July is forecast to pass Wednesday night 
bringing windy and cool conditions on Thursday. As the front 
passes, snow levels will drop to around 7000 ft and light snow 
will be possible at higher peaks in Glacier National Park on 
Thursday morning. Logan Pass will also see blustery conditions 
with 60 mph wind gusts throughout the day Thursday. Windy 
conditions will also be present at area lakes and valleys with 
sustained winds of 15 to 20 mph gusting to 30+ mph. A lake Wind 
Advisory may need to be issued for Thursday. Stay tuned for more 
updates. 


Friday through early next week...high pressure returns to the 
region. Temperatures will warm each day with very dry conditions. 
Models are indicating a return to highs in the mid 90s by Sunday 
through next Tuesday. 




&& 


Aviation...scattered showers and thunderstorms are developing 
across the region. Kbtm and ksmn are the terminals likely to be 
impacted by possible gusty winds and heavy rain from a passing 
storm. Expect scattered showers and storms to persist through the 
evening and possible overnight hours. After a brief break in the 
action tomorrow morning strong storms are expected to impact kgpi 
and kmso after 23/1800z ahead of an approaching cold front. Hail and 
gusty winds are expected with strong storms tomorrow.
