Backcountry Forecast for western Montana and north central Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
337 AM MST FRI MAR 6 2015

DISCUSSION:
Warm and dry weather will continue for the Northern Rockies through
at least Tuesday of next week. Temperatures will increase to be
around 10-15 degrees above normal during this period. This
particular pattern will continue to bring a daily melt-freeze
cycle, especially for south-facing aspects.

A chance for precipitation is forecast beginning late Tuesday into
the latter half of the week. Snow levels will remain relatively high
and moisture amounts have decreased from previous forecasts,
resulting in the potential high elevation snow and light rain at
lower elevations.
