DISCUSSION
 
THERE ARE JUST A COUPLE OF SNOW SHOWERS OVER THE  
MISSION MOUNTAINS. OTHERWISE THE NORTHERN ROCKIES ARE UNDER CLOUDY  
SKIES. SATELLITE INFO IS SHOWING CLOUDS RIDING OVER A RIDGE IN THE  
PACIFIC NORTHWEST MOVING SOUTHWARD ACROSS THE NR. CLOUDS COVERAGE  
WILL DIMINISH AFTER MIDNIGHT AS THE RIDGE IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST  
BUILDS OVER THE REGION.  
 
MARCH COMES IN LIKE A LAMB AS THEY SAY WITH DRY CONDITIONS AND  
TEMPERATURES RETURNING TO NEAR NORMAL, WHICH ARE HIGH  
TEMPERATURES IN THE MID 40S ACROSS VALLEY LOCATIONS.  
 
A PRETTY WEAK SHORT WAVE WILL PASS THROUGH NORTHWEST MONTANA  
TUESDAY UNDER MORE OF A WESTERLY FLOW ALOFT. THIS MAY TRANSLATE TO  
SOME BREEZY CONDITIONS TUESDAY AFTERNOON.  
 
WEDNESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY WE EXPECT A WARM UP ACROSS THE REGION AS  
HIGH PRESSURE REBUILDS OVER THE REGION. TEMPERATURES WILL BE  
AROUND 50 DEGREES IN MOST AREAS. SOME LOCATIONS IN WESTERN MONTANA  
MAY REACH THE MID AND UPPER 50S THURSDAY AND FRIDAY. THE LOWER  
VALLEYS OF CENTRAL IDAHO, SUCH AS SLATE CREEK AND RIGGINS SHOULD  
REACH THE 60S THU AND FRI.  
 
THE WARM TEMPERATURES LATER THIS WEEK SHOULD SPEED UP SNOWMELT,  
ESPECIALLY IN THE VALLEYS, WHERE PONDING ON ROADS AND IN THE  
FIELDS ARE LIKELY.
