BACKCOUNTRY FORECAST FOR WESTERN MONTANA AND NORTH CENTRAL IDAHO
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MISSOULA MT
406 AM MST MON MAR 2 2015

DISCUSSION: A STRONG ARCTIC PUSH AND WEATHER DISTURBANCE WILL
COMBINE TO PRODUCE SNOW AND BLOWING SNOW THIS AFTERNOON THROUGH
THE EVENING HOURS. SIGNIFICANT LOW DENSITY SNOW ACCUMULATIONS ARE
LIKELY AS A SHORT WAVE OF ENERGY INTERACTS WITH THIS COLD AIR.

MAINLY DRY CONDITIONS WITH A GRADUAL RISE TO NEAR NORMAL
TEMPERATURES ARE LIKELY FROM WEDNESDAY THROUGH NEXT WEEKEND.
