..cold front Saturday, pattern change for weekend & next week... 


Discussion... 


Several more smoky days are in store for much of the northern 
rockies as fires remain active in the region, bringing poor air 
quality to many locations. Valleys will continue to see the worst 
conditions, especially valleys in central Idaho. 


Meanwhile, some late-season monsoonal moisture brushing the 
region will bring another chance of showers and thunderstorms this 
afternoon, mainly from Lemhi County Idaho through southwest Montana. 
While these storms should be a bit wetter than recent days, enough 
low-level dryness lingers to bring a continued threat of gusty 
winds with any storms. Despite monsoonal moisture moving out of 
the region, another round of afternoon storms will be possible 
again Friday afternoon. 


Saturday will be the start of a pattern change away from the 
stagnant high pressure for the northern rockies. A shortwave 
trough will swing through the region in the late afternoon and 
evening Saturday, though precipitation looks to be limited for most 
locations. Northwest Montana will see the highest probability of 
receiving measurable rainfall. The more widespread potential 
impact will be the wind. Gusty southwest winds ahead of the front 
could potentially help clear out some of the smoke in the region. 
However, due to the increased winds, fire activity could increase. 


Another front is expected to move in late Sunday, again with increased 
winds with little precipitation. Model consensus indicates that 
the northern rockies will remain under a moist southwest to west 
flow through next week. This will keep most at or just below 
normal for temperatures, and the potential for above normal 
precipitation. 


&& 


Aviation...smoke will continue to reduce visibility and obscure 
terrain throughout the area, especially for the valleys of 
central Idaho. Afternoon breezes could help thin the smoke out, 
but only marginal visibility improvements can be expected. 
Vicinity showers and thunderstorms will again be a threat for kbtm 
and ksmn this afternoon and evening.
