The National Weather Service in Missoula has issued a Winter
Weather Advisory for snow and freezing ice/slush on roads for
Lost Trail Pass... which is in effect from 6 PM this evening to 9
am MDT Wednesday.
* Impacts/timing: a strong cold front will stall over the Lost
Trail Pass area this evening and produce snow showers. Road
temperatures will initially be above freezing and cause the snow
to melt or become slush. Temperatures should quickly drop
through the evening with much of the slush/wet roadway quickly
turning to ice and very slick travel conditions. Also,
additional snow showers are expected through the evening with
roads become snow covered as well.
* Snow accumulations: 2 to 4 inches.
A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow... and
developing icy Road conditions will cause travel difficulties. Be
prepared for slippery roads and limited visibilities... and use
caution while driving.
... Record high temperature tied at Butte Mt today...
A record high temperature of 66 degrees was set at Butte Mt today.
This ties the old record of 66 set in 1923.

Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Missoula Montana 242 PM MDT Tuesday Mar 31 2015 Discussion...a strong cold front will move across southwest Montana and Lemhi County late this afternoon and evening and produce strong gusty winds. Deerlodge to Anaconda, Butte, Salmon and Gilmore Summit should see the strongest winds and locally up to 40-50 miles per hour...but mostly 35-40 miles per hour. Gusty southwest winds will peak over Flathead Lake early this evening with local rough wave conditions. Behind the cold front, scattered showers will persist through much of the evening, especially from the bitterroots and mission mountains to the Continental Divide. The showers from the Camas Prairie to Orofino should quickly decrease and mostly end early this evening. As the main upper level weather system shifts over southwest Montana this evening, the showers should further enhance with a period of light to moderate snow in the terrain. Lost Trail Pass should be the site that is most under this area of snow and thus winter travel conditions will quickly develop. In addition, the initially wet roads should quickly become slushy and then freeze as temperatures fall well below freezing on Lost Trail Pass this evening. Some of the snow showers may also impact Bannock Pass, Georgetown Lake and as far east as Homestake pass, but the amounts and impact should be less. An upper level trough of low pressure will settle over the northern rockies Wednesday and persist into Thursday. This should translate into mainly day time showers, with many areas seeing some graupel or light snow mixed, even down to the Lower Valley floors of western Montana and Camas Prairie of north central Idaho. Cool and showery weather will continue Friday through early next week, although nice conditions will occur between systems. It will be difficult to time minor disturbances. One time period that does stand out is late Easter into Monday as forecast models continue to trend toward a stronger disturbance. Although confidence is not high, the potential exist for Mountain Pass snow and possibly even snowfall across some lower valleys. Also, temperatures will remain below normal with morning lows especially chilly thus continuing the threat to sensitive vegetation. && Aviation...a strong cold front is moving across western Montana into early this evening. Kmso and kgpi are already being impacted by a few showers and increased winds middle afternoon. As the cold front shifts across southwest Montana and Lemhi County late this afternoon and early evening, it will strengthen and produce even stronger winds. Kbtm and ksmn should see a significant wind shift to northwest winds and gusts 40-45 knots. The showers should further enhance over the southern bitterroots, sapphires, and northern Lemhi County this evening with mountain obscurations likely. Elsewhere, scattered mountain obscurations due to snow showers will continue into the evening. && Mso watches/warnings/advisories... Montana...Wind Advisory until midnight MDT tonight Butte/Blackfoot region. Lake Wind Advisory until midnight MDT tonight Flathead/mission valleys. Idaho...Winter Weather Advisory from 6 PM this evening to 9 am MDT Wednesday for Lost Trail Pass in the eastern Lemhi County. Wind Advisory until midnight MDT tonight eastern Lemhi County. && $$
