Fire Weather Planning Forecast for Wrn Montana and N Cntrl Idaho
National Weather Service Missoula MT
341 PM MDT Thu Aug 21 2014

.DISCUSSION...Widespread showers and thunderstorms continue to
develop this afternoon across the area and are likely to continue
overnight. The key threats will be heavy rain, frequent lightning
and small hail. A widespread precipitation event will be
developing across the area on Friday and persisting into the
weekend. A widespread wetting rainfall is likely for most
districts, with locations nearer to the Divide seeing well more
than an inch of precipitation. In fact, this system is so
anomalously cold that snow may be possible above 7000ft across
western Montana. After pleasant conditions returning on Sunday, a
secondary system will bring another round of rainfall to the
region on Tuesday. There may be a drying trend thereafter, but low
confidence exists in this part of the forecast.

...Widespread Wetting Rains Friday and Saturday...
...Temperatures 20 degrees cooler by Saturday...

.DISCUSSION...Showers and a few thunderstorms are widely scattered
in western Montana this morning. The unstable conditions over the
region will persist through this evening. Heating of the day will
increase the coverage of showers and storms this afternoon. Storms
are relatively slow moving and a few of the stronger storms could
produce some significant local rain amounts.

In central Idaho shower and storm activity that may occur will be
less in coverage and mainly confined to the mountains in the Nez
Perce and Clearwaters.

.DISCUSSION...Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to
be the theme, both during the day and at night, across the
Northern Rockies under a persistently moist and unstable weather
pattern. However this will change dramatically as a large,
unseasonably cold and wet weather system descends upon the region
Friday, impacting the area with valley rain, high mountain snow
and temperatures 20 degrees below normal. Basically our first,
very early taste of fall. To top it off, models are continuing to
show a secondary, albeit weaker, storm system early next week
which would keep this pattern around through perhaps the middle of
next week. Thereafter it does appear that we`ll rebound to more
normal, warmer and drier weather.

.DISCUSSION...As the region begins to transition into a large
scale trough pattern, conditions will remain unsettled the rest of
today and into Wednesday as well. Thunderstorms will develop
during the afternoon and evening hours today, and again Wednesday,
in advance of a cooler and much wetter regime that will really set
up by Thursday. But in the near term, expect rising humidity
values and a growing chance for wetting rains tonight into
Wednesday.
