..potential for light freezing rain in Lemhi County, Idaho tonight... 


Discussion...a weak surge of warmer moisture from the southwest 
will brush Lemhi County Idaho and far southwest Montana late this 
evening through early Monday morning. Models and current 
satellite/observations are indicating the best area of rain will 
be just south of Lemhi County with a light rain with far lesser 
amounts possible from Salmon southward. Given the strong 
inversions here and temperatures below freezing in valley 
locations, any light rain or drizzle that falls will produce 
freezing rain and a light glaze of ice impacting travel. Currently 
confidence is moderate for significant rain. Weak instability may 
produce a few showers in parts of western Montana Wednesday. 


Inversions are holding their own across the rest of the northern 
rockies. Temperatures in many lower valleys of western Montana 
are in the lower to mid 30s. Inversions or cold pools will 
persist overnight however with increasing cloud cover aloft 
temperatures may not lower as much. 


High pressure will re-establish itself over the region Thursday 
into Friday maintaining valley inversions. Expect slightly warmer temperatures 
above inversions. 


Friday through this weekend confidence is increasing for an 
overall change to the ridging pattern. Arctic air will skirt by 
the northern rockies. We won't feel the full force of Arctic air 
but temperatures will turn to below normal readings. Confidence 
is low on how much below normal temperatures may reach due to 
model inconsistency with the strength of cold air spilling over 
The Divide. 


Sunday afternoon through Tuesday models show a decent weather 
disturbance moving in from British Columbia. This pattern combined 
with some colder air in place would be favorable for snow over 
the region, especially northwest and west central Montana. 
Confidence is low at this time for any details of intensity or 
location of potential precipitation. 










&& 


Aviation... 
valley inversions and fog will remain an issue for ksmn this 
evening and overnight. Even though a weather disturbance will 
brush the region there may not be enough mixing to scour out the 
fog. Low pressure will move through east central Idaho and 
southwest Montana after 28/0300z through Wednesday morning. This 
system is a warmer system so any precipitation that falls here 
will be liquid thus producing a potential for freezing rain. Kmso 
and kgpi will maintain inversions tonight but an increase in 
clouds aloft may prevent any significant fog tonight and Monday 
morning.
