Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Montana and N Cntrl Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
342 AM MDT Fri Aug 1 2014

...SLOW MOVING THUNDERSTORMS THIS AFTERNOON...AGAIN ON SATURDAY...

.DISCUSSION...

A high concentration of tropical moisture will move across the
Northern Rockies from the south through Saturday evening. As has
been the case for southwest Montana and north central Idaho over
the past several days, thunderstorm development will peak in the
early evening. However, this round of thunderstorms will be more
widespread, extending all the way north to the Canada border, and
possess a high likelihood of wetting rain. Due to the convective
nature of the storms over the next few days, some locations will
receive a wetting rain while others will be missed completely.
These storms will also create some erratic wind gusts, most
notably in those area where the storms narrowly miss.

Otherwise and after Saturday, the pattern will return to daily
afternoon and evening thunderstorms as high pressure over the West
weakens early next week and re-emerges by mid-week. Daily
temperatures and poor overnight humidity recovery will not change
much over the next week. Winds will be dominated by terrain and
thunderstorm development.

...Continued Hot on Saturday...
...Increasing Thunderstorm Threat Friday and Saturday...

.DISCUSSION...The atmosphere should moisten late Friday into
Saturday resulting in an increase in the thunderstorm threat.
Initially, the storms late Friday should be a mix of wet and dry
with significant outflows/gusty winds. However, the storms should
become wetter by Saturday. The very warm air mass will continue
into Saturday. However, as the air mass slowly moistens, the
thermal belts should weaken. A little drier westerly flow is
expected to develop by early next week, but the warm air mass will
persist.

.DISCUSSION...A ridge of high pressure will continue to be the
dominant feature over the Northern Rockies through the weekend.
The ridge will keep temperatures above normal with strong thermal
belts at night. Surges of monsoon moisture will cause
afternoon/evening showers and thunderstorms. Storms could be
capable of producing moderate to heavy rainfall on Friday as a
plume of moisture from a tropical system will make its way into
the region.

...Relatively strong Thermal Belts persisting into Thursday
   night...
...A little additional heat and drier Thursday...
...Increasing Wet Thunderstorms Friday and Saturday...

.DISCUSSION...A moist and unstable atmosphere will linger across
mainly western Montana into this evening. Otherwise, high pressure
should strengthen producing a little additional heat, lower RH and
thermal belts late tonight into Thursday night. Additional
monsoon-type moisture should shift over the northern Rockies
Friday into Saturday supporting an increasing chance of wet
thunderstorms, but additional lightning as well.

Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Montana and N Cntrl Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
412 AM MDT Wed Jul 30 2014

...SLOW-MOVING AFTERNOON/EVENING THUNDERSTORMS OVER SOUTHWEST
MONTANA AND NORTH CENTRAL IDAHO THROUGH NEXT WEEK...

.DISCUSSION...

High pressure will remain over the Northern Rockies through much
of the next week. Monsoon moisture will continue to be drawn
northward beneath the high pressure, resulting in afternoon and
evening shower and thunderstorm development each day. Southwest
Montana and north central Idaho will continue to have the best
precipitation chances. Weak upper level flow during this time
will result in slow-moving thunderstorms that may produce
signficant rainfall over a focused random area. However, any storms
that form may create gusty winds. Mid-slope humidity recovery
will remain quite poor for areas that do not receive rainfall.

An even more impressive surge of moisture from a dying tropical
storm will arrive over the Northern Rockies in the Thursday
through Friday time frame. Previous models depicted a more robust
storm system, however now just the moist surge remains. This surge
episode will further increase the threat for flash flooding due to
heavy, prolonged rainfall over a focused area.

Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Montana and N Cntrl Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
237 PM MDT Tue Jul 29 2014

...Gradual Increase to Thunderstorm Threat into Saturday...

.DISCUSSION...A very warm air mass will persist. In addition, the
atmosphere will gradually moisten and become more unstable each
afternoon through Saturday. This should translate into a gradual
increase in thunderstorm coverage each day with heavy rain cores
with a few of the thunderstorms especially southwest Montana. The
relatively poor night time RH recoveries on mid slopes and ridges
will also gradually improve as the atmosphere slowly moistens.
This will be a general light wind pattern, except gusty winds
around storms.

Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Montana and N Cntrl Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
907 AM MDT Tue Jul 29 2014

...Updated to Increase Thunderstorm threat in southwest Montana
this afternoon and evening...

.DISCUSSION...The Northern Rockies will be stuck in a monsoon-like pattern
through the weekend, with daily thunderstorms developing across
central Idaho and southwest Montana. Other portions of the
Northern Rockies will generally have a lower likelihood of
thunderstorm activity, however the small chances will increase
slowly over time. The forecast was updated today to reflect a
greater threat of thunderstorms in southwest Montana. Overnight
humidity recovery will remain poor for the mid-slope elevations in
the absence of rainfall. Afternoon breezes will be mainly the
result of the terrain, nearby thunderstorm development, or both
during each day for the next week. Long-term models do not suggest
much of a pattern change at this time.
