Backcountry Forecast for western Montana and north central Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
419 AM MST TUE JAN 27 2015

DISCUSSION: High pressure will continue to be the dominant feature
over the Northern Rockies today. An extremely warm airmass
associated with this ridge will keep temperatures well above
normal especially in the higher terrain. Tonight a weak
disturbance will move across Lemhi county into southwest Montana.
This feature will create scattered showers over Lemhi county and
the Butte/Blackfoot region. Snow levels will lower some by the
time the disturbance arrives but still be high for this time of
year. The weather appears to become fairly active starting this
weekend into next week.
