NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Missoula Montana 
239 PM MDT Thursday may 28 2015 


Discussion...an exiting low pressure system will wrap around 
moisture into the the region this afternoon and evening. A weak 
back door cold front associated with this feature has produced a 
line of showers and thunderstorms into portions of west central 
Montana. The line currently extends from Missoula to Butte and 
will be moving to the southwest this evening. Also the atmosphere 
has become unstable enough to support scattered showers and 
thunderstorms across northwest Montana. The convection is 
anticipated to diminish area wide this evening, especially after 
sunset. 


The area will experience easterly winds through out the night. The 
models are indicating the possibility of downsloping winds off the 
mission mountains onto Flathead Lake late this evening. Boaters 
should be prepared for gusty winds and choppy conditions during 
this period. 


Friday appears to be slightly warmer, but another round of 
afternoon/evening showers and thunderstorms. The coverage should 
not be as widespread. A weak disturbance is anticipated to move 
into the region late Friday night into Saturday. This feature will 
cause a few showers to develop over the Clearwater/Idaho counties 
Friday night, then move up into northwest Montana. The timing of 
the feature and afternoon instability should allow for the 
development of widespread showers and thunderstorms. 


Sunday appears to be the warmest day this coming week with a 
valley locations across Clearwater and Idaho counties getting into 
the 90s. While most locations of western Montana will be in the 
upper 70s and low 80s. The best locations for thunderstorm 
activity on Sunday afternoon appears to be across north central 
Idaho into Butte/Blackfoot region. 


A vigorous low pressure system will develop and enter the Pacific 
northwest during the day on Monday. A very moist southwesterly flow will 
develop over the northern rockies ahead of the system that will 
promote widespread showers and thunderstorms. Typically this type 
of set up is favorable for strong thunderstorms to develop, and 
can't rule out a couple thunderstorms becoming severe. Confidence 
continues to grow day to day for this scenario to develop. Hail, 
gusty winds, and frequent lightning will likely be the main 
impacts. Stay tuned to the forecast the next couple days as 
details on where the stronger thunderstorms are expected to 
develop. If anything, much of the region will get beneficial rain. 


For the rest of next week, a moist southwesterly flow will linger 
over the region allowing for afternoon and evening showers and 
thunderstorms to develop. Though not expected to be as widespread 
as what could happen on Monday. 




&& 


Aviation...showers and thunderstorms will continue to develop 
across southwest Montana this afternoon. Thunderstorms are still 
anticipated to impact kbtm and ksmn this evening. Also showers 
will develop across northwest Montana which could impact kgpi. The 
convection is anticipated to diminish after 29/03z. Easterly to 
northeasterly winds will persist throughout the night.
