Backcountry Forecast for western Montana and north central Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
344 AM MST WED FEB 10 2016

DISCUSSION: Today will be another day of warmer mid to upper
elevations thanks to strengthening temperature inversions, much
the same as the past few days (for all of the Northern Rockies).
Increasing clouds will begin to move in from the west-northwest
overnight, with light mountain snow showers spreading across the
Kootenai/Cabinet/Whitefish/Glacier region through Thursday.
Accumulations will increase further as we near the Friday
timeframe, in addition to snow levels finally dropping to around
5000 feet.
