... Winter Storm Watch remains in effect from this evening through
Sunday afternoon above 4500 feet...
* impacts/timing: accumulating snow may produce difficult travel
over mountain passes and throughout the back country tonight
through Sunday afternoon. Some high elevation valleys in
southwest Montana could also receive accumulating snow which
could impact travel. Hunters and those in the back country will
experience raw winter conditions.
* Snow accumulations: 4-8 inches above 4500 feet with greater
amounts expected in the higher terrain.
* Locations impacted include... Bannock Pass... Highway 28 Tendoy
to Lone Pine... Highway 93 Lost Trail Pass to Gibbonsville...
Lemhi Pass... Marias Pass... Butte... Georgetown Lake... Highway
12 Garrison to Elliston... MacDonald Pass
A Winter Storm Watch means there is a potential for significant
snow... sleet... or ice accumulations that may impact travel.
Continue to monitor the latest forecasts.
... Record high temperature set at Butte Mt...
a record high temperature of 66 degrees was set at Butte Mt yesterday.
This ties the old record of 66 set in 2008.

Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Missoula Montana 422 am MDT Sat Nov 1 2014 ..significant mountain snowfall expected tonight along the Idaho/Montana border... Discussion...forecast models continue to trend ever so slightly to the west with the approaching storm system. But these changes appear to be less in magnitude with the past few model runs and we believe we're finally approaching a consolidation of solutions which place the emphasis for heaviest precipitation over the Bitterroot & Clearwater Mountains of central Idaho and west central Montana. This will result in heavy snow impacts to travel over Lost Trail Pass, but especially Lolo Pass tonight through Sunday morning. Thus have upgraded the Winter Storm Watch to a warning above 4500ft. Not only will this storm affect travel over these passes, but it will produce even heavier accumulations throughout the backcountry where hunters and recreationalists could be significantly affected. Elsewhere we have decided to continue with the Winter Storm Watch. This is mainly due to remaining model inconsistencies with timing and track of the upper and mid level storm features. Snow is still forecast to impact many areas above 4500ft over much of southwest Montana and along the Continental divide; however, would like to see one more set of model runs to give extra care in measuring the overall impact across these areas remaining in the watch. One new concern will be the growing potential for intense precipitation to drag the snow level even lower than 4500ft very early Sunday morning. This could produce a mix of rain and snow or perhaps even have rain switch over to all snow for short window of time in the Missoula, Lolo, Frenchtown and perhaps Alberton region. However, this will be highly dependent upon where the track of heaviest precipitation develops, something which the models have been struggling to depict for days now. So this too will be carefully evaluated when the latest model data comes in later this morning. After this system passes the upper level flow turns more westerly. Models are in agreement that a strong acceleration in the jet stream will transport increasing amounts of moisture into northwest Montana by Tuesday. But this appears short lived and by late Wednesday high pressure begins to develop, shifting chances for precipitation towards the Canadian border and subsequently raising snow levels. Though variable cloudiness is expected to remain, strengthening valley inversions may produce some persistent valley fog Thursday and Friday morning. The models begin to diverge late in the week, but would suggest trending back towards a cooler trough for the weekend. So the forecast remains seasonal with near normal chances for precipitation. && Aviation...fog is the primary concern this Saturday morning, with kgpi forecast to hold on to dense fog until late morning. A low pressure system will bring increasing clouds, lowering ceilings, and precipitation into the region this afternoon. Winds are not expected to be strong, roughly in the 10kt range. All terminals can expect precipitation to begin by 02/0600, with exact timing varying by location. Snow levels will drop to 4500ft msl, and by early Sunday morning, kbtm could see light snow. && Mso watches/warnings/advisories...
