NWS Forecaster Discussion



Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Missoula MT
252 PM MDT SAT JUL 4 2015

...Dangerous fire weather conditions this afternoon and evening...

...Much cooler tomorrow for western Montana...

.DISCUSSION...Very warm and dry conditions remain in place today
across western Montana and north central Idaho. Winds are expected
to increase this afternoon and evening as well, becoming gusty
from the west, especially across northwest and west central
Montana. This combination will lead to dangerous conditions
relating to fire weather, and thus a Red Flag Warning continues.

A significant change begins to occur tonight as a backdoor cold
front will move into the area from Canada. This cold front will
bring a dramatic shift in the wind direction to more of an east or
northeast direction, and could become quite gusty at times,
especially across northwest Montana. The front will bring a
significant cooling trend to particularly western Montana, where
temperatures on Sunday will run on average 15 to 20 degrees cooler
than Saturday. Showers and even an isolated thunderstorm are
possible late tonight into Sunday morning, generally for locations
north of Missoula. Those recreating in Glacier National Park
should be prepared for an abrupt weather change, with much cooler
temperatures, winds, and likely showers/thunderstorms.

By tomorrow afternoon, forecast models continue to indicate the
potential for instability and moisture to allow for the formation
of thunderstorms across much of the region. The most favored area
for convection will be through the Bitterroot and Clearwater
Mountains, the Sapphire Mountains, the Anaconda/Pintler Ranges
and Lemhi County in Idaho. The main threats will be brief heavy
rain, lightning, and locally gusty winds. Thunderstorm activity
should decrease by mid evening.

Another backdoor cold front is expected on Tuesday bringing a
chance of showers and thunderstorms to mainly Northwest Montana
and along the Divide. Gusty easterly winds are once again possible
for the favored locations such as Badrock Canyon.

For the remainder of next week, temperatures will remain around
7-12 degrees above normal with Thursday expected to be the warmest
day at this point. Only isolated shower/thunderstorm activity is
anticipated until Friday and Saturday, when forecast models are
hinting at a weak weather disturbance and accompanying surge of
moisture allowing for the potential of more widespread
thunderstorm activity.

&&

.AVIATION...High density altitudes continue this afternoon before
a backdoor cold front this evening and overnight will cool
temperatures and cause a northeasterly wind shift for many
terminals. KGPI will see the strongest winds, with overnight gusts
to 30 kts possible. KMSO will not feel winds shift to the east
until Sunday morning. Idaho airports will be largely spared from
wind impacts since the front weakens before reaching Idaho. On
Sunday, there is a small chance KGPI could see late morning
showers, with afternoon thunderstorms possible at KMSO, KBTM, and
KSMN.

&&

.MSO WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
MT...RED FLAG WARNING until 9 PM MDT this evening East Lolo...
     Flathead/Glacier Park...Salish and Kootenai Reservation.

     RED FLAG WARNING until 9 PM MDT this evening Kootenai.

ID...None.
