Backcountry Forecast for western Montana and north central Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
436 AM MST SUN JAN 25 2015

DISCUSSION: There has been little change to the short term
forecast. Rain and high elevation snow showers will decrease
through this morning and high pressure will strengthen. Very warm
temperatures for this time of the year will develop overnight in
the high terrain with additional warming expected on Monday. The
amount of warm air will bring near or even above record
temperatures on Monday and increased west and southwest winds are
possible today through Monday. Warm temperatures will remain for
Tuesday but the ridge will begin to weaken through the day so it
will not be quite as warm. The next chance for precipitation is on
Wednesday with lowering snow levels causing predominately mountain
snow.
