Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Missoula MT
223 PM MDT Wed Sep 28 2016

.DISCUSSION...Tomorrow will be another nice, warm day, but with a
chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon. Some showers will
continue through the night and into Friday. Increased cloud cover
Friday will weaken updrafts causing more showers than
thunderstorms across the area. Saturday and Sunday will be cloudy,
showery, and progressively cooler.

Monday will be about 20 degrees cooler than Friday was with highs
in the 50s. The rest of next week will remain cool and unsettled.
Snow levels in northwest Montana will drop below 6,000 ft early
next week, so some showers will likely be snow showers. This will
mainly just affect the mountain passes and back country locations.
Snow levels will start to rise again the middle of next week as
unstable northwest flow becomes established over the region.


.AVIATION...No significant impacts from ceiling or visibility this
evening as the region remains under the influence of a ridge. High
pressure over the plains is causing north easterly flow at some
terminals, which is a little unusual, but this will decrease
tonight as the high pressure moves east.
