NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Missoula Montana 
350 am MST sun Feb 14 2016 


Discussion...the next wave of showers have pushed into the 
northern rockies overnight with periods of snow being reported 
across the higher terrain as well as in some lower elevation 
locations. And while winter weather advisory's continue for a good 
swath of the area above 4000ft, forecast models along with recent 
radar and satellite trends show the next push of moisture focused 
a bit farther south than previously thought. So do not anticipate 
snow amounts to be nearly as much and generally half of what was 
forecast yesterday (1 to 3 inches vs. 2 to 6 inches) regardless, 
there will still be periods of travel impacts over the higher 
terrain this morning, especially to those traveling over Lolo and 
Lookout Pass. But lesser impacts are likely in the West Glacier 
region as well as The Butte/Blackfoot region and these advisory's 
may end up being cancelled early. 


All models continue to show a very strong upper level jet stream 
slamming into the British Columbia coast tonight which will bring 
a healthy feed of deep, subtropical moisture southeast into Idaho 
and Montana. Forecast models have deviated little from their 
depictions 1 to 2 inches total precipitation over the higher 
terrain of the mission, Swan, Bitterroot and Clearwater Mountains. 
Locally up to 3 inches of liquid may be possible in the 
Clearwater, Swan and mission ranges through Monday. The snow level 
during the heaviest precipitation appears to reside between 6000ft 
and 6800ft, so much of the precipitation will fall as High 
Mountain snow with valley rain below 6000ft. This may promote 
increased ponding of water in some valleys, the impacts of which 
are further discussed below in the hydrology section. 


A weak high pressure ridge will try to nudge the jet stream and 
storm track north into Canada on Tuesday. However a large low 
pressure system approaching the West Coast appears to keep a 
steady flow of moisture over the region Tuesday and Wednesday with 
limited potential for drying. However warm, above normal 
temperatures will continue throughout the rest of this week in 
this flow pattern. Precipitation should become more widespread by 
late Wednesday as the approaching weather system moves inland. But 
the snow level will remain high (+6500ft) and thus travel impacts 
will be limited until the cold front sweeps through the region 
Thursday evening. Thereafter models keep things unstable through 
the weekend, but the consensus points towards a drying and warming 
trend to begin after next weekend. 


&& 


Aviation...occasional light snow may impact visibility and help 
usher in temporarily lowered ceilings at all airfields today. 
However conditions overall shouldn't be too bad for very long with 
the most persistent snow showers impacting kmso and ksmn. Area 
terrain will be obscured at times in clouds and by transient 
showers. 


&& 


Hydrology...warm, above normal temperatures will keep the snow 
level high and result in widespread valley/mid slope rain across 
the region today through Tuesday. Increased ponding of water 
could become problematic in some valleys where snow remains on the 
ground and may further clog or hamper natural drainage. Even those 
who have experienced recent melting may see standing water due to 
much of the soil remaining quite saturated. 


The heavier precipitation will also bring about the possibility of 
rock and/or mudslides along US-12 in Idaho and I-90 near Lookout 
Pass in Montana. These issues are further highlighted in a 
hydrologic outlook that can be viewed on our website at 
www.Weather.Gov/Missoula.
