Backcountry Forecast for western Montana and north central Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
319 AM MDT THU MAR 26 2015

DISCUSSION: Light precipitation across mainly northwest Montana
will gradually decrease this morning as a high pressure ridge
builds into the region. Warming and drying is anticipated with
this building ridge through Friday. Temperatures on Friday will be
as much as 15-20 degrees above normal. On Saturday, a shortwave
feature will cool temperatures and lower snow levels with fairly
widespread precipitation. The accompanying cold front will also be
capable of windy conditions on Saturday, especially at ridge tops.
