NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Missoula Montana 
422 am MDT Sat Nov 1 2014 


..significant mountain snowfall expected tonight along the 
Idaho/Montana border... 


Discussion...forecast models continue to trend ever so slightly 
to the west with the approaching storm system. But these changes 
appear to be less in magnitude with the past few model runs and 
we believe we're finally approaching a consolidation of solutions 
which place the emphasis for heaviest precipitation over the 
Bitterroot & Clearwater Mountains of central Idaho and west 
central Montana. This will result in heavy snow impacts to travel 
over Lost Trail Pass, but especially Lolo Pass tonight through 
Sunday morning. Thus have upgraded the Winter Storm Watch to a 
warning above 4500ft. Not only will this storm affect travel over 
these passes, but it will produce even heavier accumulations 
throughout the backcountry where hunters and recreationalists 
could be significantly affected. 


Elsewhere we have decided to continue with the Winter Storm Watch. 
This is mainly due to remaining model inconsistencies with timing 
and track of the upper and mid level storm features. Snow is 
still forecast to impact many areas above 4500ft over much of 
southwest Montana and along the Continental divide; however, would 
like to see one more set of model runs to give extra care in 
measuring the overall impact across these areas remaining in the 
watch. One new concern will be the growing potential for intense 
precipitation to drag the snow level even lower than 4500ft very 
early Sunday morning. This could produce a mix of rain and snow or 
perhaps even have rain switch over to all snow for short window of 
time in the Missoula, Lolo, Frenchtown and perhaps Alberton 
region. However, this will be highly dependent upon where the 
track of heaviest precipitation develops, something which the 
models have been struggling to depict for days now. So this too 
will be carefully evaluated when the latest model data comes in 
later this morning. 


After this system passes the upper level flow turns more 
westerly. Models are in agreement that a strong acceleration in 
the jet stream will transport increasing amounts of moisture into 
northwest Montana by Tuesday. But this appears short lived and by 
late Wednesday high pressure begins to develop, shifting chances 
for precipitation towards the Canadian border and subsequently 
raising snow levels. Though variable cloudiness is expected to 
remain, strengthening valley inversions may produce some 
persistent valley fog Thursday and Friday morning. The models 
begin to diverge late in the week, but would suggest trending back 
towards a cooler trough for the weekend. So the forecast remains 
seasonal with near normal chances for precipitation. 


&& 


Aviation...fog is the primary concern this Saturday morning, 
with kgpi forecast to hold on to dense fog until late morning. 
A low pressure system will bring increasing clouds, lowering 
ceilings, and precipitation into the region this afternoon. Winds 
are not expected to be strong, roughly in the 10kt range. All 
terminals can expect precipitation to begin by 02/0600, with exact 
timing varying by location. Snow levels will drop to 4500ft msl, 
and by early Sunday morning, kbtm could see light snow.
