roads become snow covered as well.

* Snow accumulations: 2 to 4 inches.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Missoula Montana 
242 PM MDT Tuesday Mar 31 2015 


Discussion...a strong cold front will move across southwest 
Montana and Lemhi County late this afternoon and evening and 
produce strong gusty winds. Deerlodge to Anaconda, Butte, Salmon 
and Gilmore Summit should see the strongest winds and locally up 
to 40-50 miles per hour...but mostly 35-40 miles per hour. Gusty southwest winds will 
peak over Flathead Lake early this evening with local rough wave 
conditions. 


Behind the cold front, scattered showers will persist through much 
of the evening, especially from the bitterroots and mission 
mountains to the Continental Divide. The showers from the Camas 
Prairie to Orofino should quickly decrease and mostly end early 
this evening. 


As the main upper level weather system shifts over southwest 
Montana this evening, the showers should further enhance with a 
period of light to moderate snow in the terrain. Lost Trail Pass 
should be the site that is most under this area of snow and thus 
winter travel conditions will quickly develop. In addition, the 
initially wet roads should quickly become slushy and then freeze 
as temperatures fall well below freezing on Lost Trail Pass this 
evening. Some of the snow showers may also impact Bannock Pass, 
Georgetown Lake and as far east as Homestake pass, but the 
amounts and impact should be less. 


An upper level trough of low pressure will settle over the 
northern rockies Wednesday and persist into Thursday. This should 
translate into mainly day time showers, with many areas seeing 
some graupel or light snow mixed, even down to the Lower Valley 
floors of western Montana and Camas Prairie of north central 
Idaho. 


Cool and showery weather will continue Friday through early next 
week, although nice conditions will occur between systems. It will 
be difficult to time minor disturbances. One time period that 
does stand out is late Easter into Monday as forecast models 
continue to trend toward a stronger disturbance. Although 
confidence is not high, the potential exist for Mountain Pass snow 
and possibly even snowfall across some lower valleys. Also, 
temperatures will remain below normal with morning lows especially 
chilly thus continuing the threat to sensitive vegetation. 


&& 


Aviation...a strong cold front is moving across western Montana 
into early this evening. Kmso and kgpi are already being impacted 
by a few showers and increased winds middle afternoon. As the cold 
front shifts across southwest Montana and Lemhi County late this 
afternoon and early evening, it will strengthen and produce even 
stronger winds. Kbtm and ksmn should see a significant wind shift 
to northwest winds and gusts 40-45 knots. The showers should 
further enhance over the southern bitterroots, sapphires, and 
northern Lemhi County this evening with mountain obscurations 
likely. Elsewhere, scattered mountain obscurations due to snow 
showers will continue into the evening.
