Backcountry Forecast for western Montana and north central Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
401 AM MST MON JAN 26 2015

DISCUSSION: High pressure will continue to be the dominant feature
over the Northern Rockies today through Tuesday. An extremely warm
air mass associated with this ridge will keep temperatures well
above normal especially in the higher terrain. Breezy westerly to
southwesterly winds will also affect the higher terrain through at
least today. On Wednesday a weak disturbance originating from Baja
Mexico will make its way up into portions of north central Idaho
and southwest Montana. This feature will create scattered showers
over the aforementioned area, particularly 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.
