Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Missoula Montana 253 PM MST Tuesday Nov 24 2015 ..snow and blowing snow and rapid freezing of roads late this afternoon and this through this evening... Discussion...a large low pressure system along the Pacific northwest coast has brought moderate to heavy snow showers this morning and afternoon through northwest and west-central Montana this morning and afternoon, as well as portions of north-central Idaho. A Canadian cold front has been dropping southward, resulting in several inches of snow reported for northwest Montana and strong and cold, gusty winds. Several Road incidents have been reported near the Kalispell and Flathead Lake areas associated with snow, low visibility, blowing snow, strong winds, and slick roads. Chain restrictions were placed along The Divide for MacDonald Pass. Degraded conditions have also been reported along Highway 200, Highway 93, and I-90 corridors. Winter storm warnings and advisories are in effect, and are expected to remain in effect through Wednesday morning. As the cold front continues to move down the northern rockies, snow showers will also push southward and cold air with strong winds will take its place. Any wet or slushy roads throughout the day will become frozen and hazardous in the wake of the cold air and/or after sunset. This timing is especially significant for evening commuters in the Missoula and Bitterroot valleys and surrounding vicinity. Mountain roads and passes are expected to have blowing snow through Wednesday morning, which could reduce visibility and create slick patches despite previously being cleared. Lingering snow showers will persist for portions of north-central Idaho, Lost Trail Pass, and southwest Montana through Wednesday morning. Wind chill factors may dip to 10 to 20 below zero in local areas where wind will persist tonight, such as Hellgate Canyon (or downtown missoula) and bad Rock Canyon near Columbia Falls. The next big impact will be very cold temperatures Thanksgiving morning and Friday morning. Temperatures will be widespread in the single digits across much of western Montana. Extreme cold temperatures anywhere from 10 to 20 below zero are anticipated in higher valleys. This includes Butte, Georgetown Lake, Philipsburg, Ovando, and the Seeley/Swan Valley. Mainly dry conditions are anticipated through the middle of next week, with the exception of this weekend. Models are indicating a weather system to our south will produce some wrap around moisture Saturday and Sunday. If this occurs, a few inches of snow may be possible along The Divide and southwest Montana. There is some discrepancy to where this may occur. Given such uncertainty, some slight chance of precipitation has been introduced for this weekend in southwest Montana. Otherwise expect cold temperatures to remain in the lower valleys. They will be tough to scour out with the light winds and stable conditions. The next major system to potentially impact the northern rockies may not occur until late next week. && Aviation...a winter storm will continue to affect area terminals this afternoon and evening. Snow at kgpi will taper off, but gusty northeast winds will continue into the nighttime hours. For kmso, the front and associated wind shift to east winds will occur this afternoon. Snow is expected to continue through the evening in west central Montana. For kbtm, snow will likely increase in intensity after dark, continuing through the overnight hours. Quickly falling temperatures this evening will likely cause freezing of any wet runway surfaces. By tomorrow morning, kbtm and ksmn are expected to see lingering snow showers. Expect low ceilings and low visibility at times at all terminals due to snow and blowing snow. && Mso watches/warnings/advisories...
