NWS Forecaster Discussion



Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Missoula MT
401 AM MST TUE MAR 3 2015

.DISCUSSION...The weather disturbance that ushered in a colder
arctic air mass and associated snow and blowing snow yesterday has
moved out of most of the Northern Rockies. There are still some
snow showers lingering in southwest Montana and Lemhi county but
these will exit the region by mid morning.  

Impacts from this system will continue through the mid morning
hours as east to northeast winds will produce cold wind chills at
or below zero. Morning travel may be difficult in a few areas as
web cams indicate several roads snowpacked and slick where heavier
amounts of snow (2-5 inches) fell last evening. 

Dry conditions with clearing skies will occur during the afternoon
hours under a dry northwesterly flow pattern. 

A prolonged dry period is expected through the REMAINDER of the
week into this weekend. Temperatures will gradually increase to
normal readings by Thursday and at or above normal readings into
the lower 50s this weekend. The only potential for an shower
activity is Friday along the Canadian border and Glacier NP.
However confidence is pretty low for this. Even if a few showers
develop, impacts will be very low.

&&

.AVIATION...The gusty winds are on the decrease this morning and
will continue to decrease throughout the day today. Scattered
light snow showers will linger at KBTM through mid morning, which
will cause reduced visbilities and mountain obscurations.
Elsewhere, cloud cover will continue to decrease through the day
as drier air moves in.
