NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Missoula Montana 
335 am MDT Tuesday Oct 21 2014 


Discussion...the main area of lift is going to shift over north 
central Idaho and west central Montana by sunrise this morning 
with light to moderate rain and a few lightning strikes. A cold 
front will move through this morning causing snow levels to lower 
to around 5000 feet by this afternoon, so watch out for snow 
accumulations in the high terrain and over mountain passes. 
Temperatures have remained warm overnight and cooler air behind 
the cold front will also generally cause a cooling trend through 
the day. 


The main shortwave with this system will pass this afternoon with Lemhi 
County Idaho and southwest Montana expecting to receive the 
heaviest amount of precipitation. Precipitation will quickly 
decrease this evening as the trough moves off to the east and 
drier air moves in. 


Wednesday now looks to be mostly dry with morning fog as weak high 
pressure moves over Idaho and western Montana. 


A steady stream of moisture, evident on water vapor imagery, 
extends through the eastern Pacific and is forecast to pass 
through the region during the end of the week and this weekend in 
the form of multiple troughs. This weather pattern for the 
extended forecast period will promote near normal high 
temperatures, above normal low temperatures, and periods of rain. 


&& 


Aviation...cloud cover and rain are increasing early this morning 
as the next weather system moves into the region. Idaho and 
western Montana will lie in the optimum lift region this morning 
with moderate rain showers and even a few lightning strikes 
likely. Terrain will be obscured through most of the day with high 
amounts of moisture passing with the trough. This trough will pass 
this afternoon keeping rain and high elevation snow in eastern 
Idaho and southwest Montana. Sky cover will begin to clear out 
this evening and fog will develop in many of the valleys through 
the region by Wednesday morning. 




&& 


Mso watches/warnings/advisories... 
Montana...Winter Weather Advisory from noon today to 6 am MDT Wednesday 
above 6000 feet for The Butte/Blackfoot region. 


Winter Weather Advisory from 6 am this morning to 6 am MDT 
Wednesday above 5000 feet for the Bitterroot/Sapphire 
Mountains. 


Idaho...Winter Weather Advisory from 5 am early this morning to 5 am PDT 
Wednesday above 5000 feet for the southern Clearwater 
Mountains. 


Winter Weather Advisory from 6 am this morning to 6 am MDT 
Wednesday for Lolo Pass and Lost Trail Pass in the eastern
