AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION  
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MISSOULA MT  
206 PM MDT SAT MAY 27 2017  
   
DISCUSSION
 
A RIDGE BUILDING OVER THE REGION IS KEEPING  
CONVECTION AROUND THE AREA LIMITED TO CLOUDS, BUT SOME SHOWERS  
OVER THE MOUNTAINS ARE POSSIBLE THIS AFTERNOON. THUNDERSTORMS ARE  
NOT EXPECTED. THE NEXT SEVERAL DAYS WILL BE PLEASANT WITH SLIGHTLY  
WARMING TEMPERATURES EACH DAY. SOME MOUNTAIN SHOWERS ARE POSSIBLE  
EACH DAY, ESPECIALLY ALONG THE CONTINENTAL DIVIDE.  
 
MODELS AGREE THAT THE RIDGE WILL BREAK DOWN WEDNESDAY NIGHT OR  
THURSDAY, THOUGH THEY DISAGREE ON HOW THAT WILL HAPPEN.  
REGARDLESS, THE CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL INCREASE  
SIGNIFICANTLY WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND THURSDAY WITH A VERY MILD COOL  
DOWN AFTER THAT.  
 
RIVERS REMAIN HIGH, BUT THE LACK OF SIGNIFICANT WIDE SPREAD RAIN  
WILL PREVENT MOST RIVERS FROM FLOODING, THOUGH THE SALMON RIVER  
NEAR SALMON IN LEMHI COUNTY IDAHO AND THE NORTH FORK FLATHEAD  
RIVER NEAR COLUMBIA FALLS ARE BEING MONITORED CLOSELY.  
 

 
   
AVIATION
 
FAIR FLYING CONDITIONS EXPECTED TODAY THROUGHOUT THE  
REGION. THERE WILL BE SOME ISOLATED SHOWERS DEVELOPING IN THE  
TERRAIN ALONG THE CONTINENTAL DIVIDE, BUT NOT EXPECTED TO IMPACT  
AVIATION TERMINALS.
