Backcountry Forecast for western Montana and north central Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
433 AM MST Mon Jan 23 2017

DISCUSSION: A weak disturbance continues to move through Northwest
Montana this morning causing steady light snow. The feature
should move out of the area by late morning-early afternoon. The
upper level flow pattern will become northerly tonight through
Tuesday which is conducive to scattered snow showers. A subtle
feature appears to enhance the shower activity especially along
the Montana/Idaho border on Tuesday. The mountains should receive
a couple of inches of new snow over the next 48 hours.
