Backcountry Forecast for western Montana and north central Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
417 AM MST THU MAR 5 2015

DISCUSSION:

High pressure will exist over the Northern Rockies through at
least the middle of next week. Anticipate mainly relatively warm
and dry conditions during this time. The upcoming extended period
of warmth will accelerate melting of snowpack, particularly on
south-facing slopes below 6000 feet.

A significant pattern change is expected to occur around the
middle of next week, with high elevation snow chances increasing
through the following weekend.
