328 AM MST Mon Jan 22 2018


A little patchy fog along the Missouri River this morning, while
high clouds spreading out of central Montana are generally
limiting the spread of fog up the Milk River.

Clouds will continue to increase in coverage and lower as
shortwave trof pushes across the northern Rockies today. Moisture
generally confined to southern Montana, and with weak forcing, any
snow produced by this wave should be limited to the south.

Upper ridge then rebounds through mid week with dry conditions.
Temperatures will be steadily warming through Thursday as Pacific
trof digs down the west coast. Trof moves through the northern
Rockies Thursday night, pushing a cold front across the state.
Timing slightly different among the models, but overall cold air
advection and downslope dominate with little moisture available
for low potential for precipitation over the weekend. Ebert


VFR conditions. Patchy valley fog could reduce flight conditions
to IFR this morning, especially at KOLF.

Clouds will increase in coverage today as a weak disturbance moves
across southern Montana.
