AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GREAT FALLS MT
303 PM MDT Wed Jul 30 2014

.DISCUSSION...
Tonight through Wednesday...a rather simple summer like forecast
expected over the next week. Overall...very warm temperatures and
isolated/scattered thunderstorms are expected across the entire
region over the next week. An upper level ridge of high pressure
will be over the region...with weak upper level
disturbances/monsoonal moisture moving through the region. Thus
isolated/scattered thunderstorms are possible each day...with the
best chance for any thunderstorms occurring over the Rocky Mountain
Front and Southwest MT. Temperatures will remain on the very
warm/hot side through the period...with any cooling of afternoon
temperatures being very minimal. Brusda

.AVIATION...
UPDATED 1727Z.
VFR conditions will prevail through this TAF period but ISOLD/SCT
SHRA and TS are forecast this afternoon and evening over the
mountains. Slight chance for a shower or storm to move close to KHLN
and KCTB, so mentioned VCTS between 22z-03z with main threat being
gusty erratic outflow winds. However, CB will mainly be anchored over
the higher terrain through the day. Uttech
