NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Missoula Montana 
230 PM MST Sat Nov 22 2014 


Discussion... 


Behind the cold front that passed through the region today snow 
showers are expected to redevelop through north central Idaho, 
west central Montana, and Lemhi County Idaho this evening. These 
showers will keep snow accumulating on Lolo and lost trail passes. 
These showers will continue into early Sunday with a decrease in 
activity during the day before the next weather system arrives. 


Another snow producing weather system will pass on Sunday night 
that has a high chance to bring light snow accumulations through 
much of north central Idaho and western Montana into early Sunday 
morning. A rather lengthy Winter Weather Advisory will be 
maintained for the bitterroots and Clearwater Mountains even 
though there will likely be a distinct period of lesser impact 
midday Sunday. 


Drier conditions will return during the day Monday but a 
potentially high impact, moist, weather system is becoming likely 
for Monday night through Tuesday. This weather system should start 
off cool in the valleys and have a very good Pacific moisture tap, 
so widespread valley snow with heavy mountain snow is possible. 


The weather could get even more interesting around Thanksgiving as 
models area showing a moist northwest upper level flow developing 
Wednesday over northwest Montana, while cold Canadian surface air 
slides into the area from the northeast. This could be a very good 
snow pattern for northwest Montana Wednesday night and Thursday, 
and over the remainder of western Montana and the higher terrain 
of north central Idaho Thursday and Thursday night. Model 
consistency with this solution is new and still not ideal, keeping 
forecast confidence relatively low. However, this will be looked 
at closely over the next couple days. 


&& 


Aviation...snow showers will develop later this afternoon through 
north central Idaho and into west central Montana. Higher 
elevations are expected to remain obscured with lowered 
visibilities in snow. Lower elevations will only have periods of 
lowered visibility overnight under stronger snow showers. High 
pressure will briefly pass during the day on Sunday so cloud cover 
will decrease somewhat and showers will decrease but this will all 
be short-lived with another shortwave expected Sunday afternoon.
