...Significant Snow Possible on Mountain Passes This Weekend...

.DISCUSSION...A weather disturbance late Friday and into the
weekend will bring wet weather and colder conditions to the
Northern Rockies. There is a possibility of significant mountain
and higher-elevation valley snow and perhaps a wintry mix to the
lower valleys.

Expecting a foggy start to the day for most valleys as a moist
airmass lingers in the region and weak inversions develop. A moist
Pacific system will spread wet weather across the Pacific NW
today; however, forecast models indicate it will mostly remain to
our west, with with the chance of rain limited to far northwest
Montana. Elsewhere, mid-slope temperatures should warm as a warmer
airmass moves in from the south, but valleys may not see much of a
warm-up with inversions struggling to break given the time of year
and cloudy skies. More valley fog is likely tonight with a
continued moist boundary layer and a bit of clearing overnight.

For Halloween, expect a warmer day in general as a warmer airmass
moves in and some southerly breezes allow for a bit more mixing.
Clouds will increase by the afternoon meanwhile as another
weather disturbance approaches the area. Central Idaho and
northwest Montana will probably see light rain in time for trick-
or-treating, while the Kalispell- Missoula- Salmon corridor and
eastward should remain dry through at the least the evening hours.

A significant weather system is forecast to impact much of the
Northern Rockies this weekend, bringing with it heavy snow above
5000ft and perhaps a mix of rain and snow as low as 3500ft.
Locations across southwest Montana (i.e Butte, Georgetown Lake,
Lost Trail/Homestake/MacDonald/Skalkaho Passes), west central
Montana (Lolo Pass & Seeley Lake) and north central Idaho (i.e
Dixie, Gilmore Summit & Bannock Pass) still appear to be the most
significantly impacted by heavy snowfall amounts between 4 and 10
inches (up to 18 inches in the backcountry) starting Saturday
morning and continuing into Sunday afternoon. The latest weather
models are maintaining a fairly consistent path and timing to the
system with perhaps a slight trend towards a slower, more westerly
solution. This actually lends increased confidence in the forecast
of snow across the Bitterroot, Mission and Swan Mountain Ranges as
well as a greater likelihood for rather wet conditions for many
western Montana valleys below 5000ft this weekend. It also
maintains already high confidence in the snowfall potential for
southwest Montana.

The snow level is expected to drop Saturday night as the low
exits into North Central Montana and fall to around 3500ft
(perhaps lower) by Sunday morning. Any accumulation at these lower
elevations is still expected to be very light and pose minimal
impacts. Precipitation should decrease through the afternoon and
Sunday evening for all but the Seeley/Swan/Glacier National Park
areas and largely be finished by Monday morning.

An active pattern looks to continue into next week, with
occasional rounds of wet weather under westerly flow aloft. The
best chance of precipitation will be those areas favored under
westerly flow, such as the Cabinet Range and other ranges of
northwest Montana, as well as most of central Idaho. Snow levels
are expected to rise above pass level through this period,
limiting the winter impacts to the higher elevations. 

&&

.AVIATION...Moist conditions in the valleys will lead to patchy
fog and low clouds, causing reduced visibilities and periodic low
ceilings at KMSO and KGPI through mid-morning. Conditions should
begin to slowly improve around mid-morning. Elsewhere, mostly
cloudy skies will continue with light winds.
