National Weather Service Missoula MT
226 PM MDT SAT SEP 20 2014


.DISCUSSION...A ridge of high pressure will be the dominant
feature through the middle part of the week. A weak disturbance
will undercut the ridge Sunday night into Monday, causing showers
across southwest Montana. Also, a plume of moisture appears to
push into the region on Tuesday, bringing showers to the area,
primarily across northwest Montana. Wednesday is expected to be
the warmest and driest day this week, as temperatures approach
record values. The cold front has slowed to Thursday night/Friday
time frame, with a cold low pressure system expected by the
weekend.
