wrap around energy from an upper low moving north and east through
the dakotas and upslope flow near the surface was continuing to
produce rain and mountain snow showers over the area this
afternoon. In general, precipitation has diminished from last
night and this morning, with the rain and snow expected to
decrease through the evening and overnight. With the precipitation
decreasing, have gone ahead and cancelled the areal flood watch
for the remainder of the area. Snow will continue over the
mountains through the evening, with another 2 to 5 inches of snow
possible above 6500 feet, with the greatest totals on northeast
facing slopes. As a result, have continued the winter storm
warning for our mountains. With the recent precipitation, fog is
possible over portions of southeast montana tonight.

Outside of some showers over our mountains on Thursday, it will be
generally dry for much of the area through most of the day. By
later in the afternoon and evening, another upper low lifting
north and east out of the great basin into wyoming will spread
rain and mountain snow across the area. Precipitation will
continue Thursday night into Friday, heaviest east of billings as
the upper low lifts northeast through southeast montana into the
dakotas. Rain showers will wrap back around the low and across the
area on Friday as it continues to lift away from the area. Drier
conditions then look to move into the area Friday night as some
shortwave ridging works into the region. Rainfall totals Thursday
through Friday will range from 0.10 to 0.25 inches over western
and central areas, to 0.25 to 0.50 inches over eastern areas, with
some locations seeing perhaps a bit more. Several inches of snow
look possible in the mountains as well. High temperatures will
range from the 50s to near 60 both Thursday and Friday, with lows
mainly in the 30s and 40s. Stp

Long term Valid for sat... Sun... Mon... Tue... Wed...

Saturday appears to be a nice day before switching back to an
unsettled weather pattern. Slight ridging will build in allowing
temperatures to warm and the CWA to slightly dry on Saturday. Due
to the recent moisture, expect showers and a few isolated
thunderstorms to form during the afternoon areas that receive sun
earlier in the day.

A low pressure system will move into the great basin allowing a
cold front to move through southeast montana. The next chance of
showers and thunderstorms arrives Sunday afternoon and evening
with the front. As this system moves into wyoming, a better chance
of widespread precipitation arrives Tuesday into Wednesday behind
the system.

Expect warmer temperatures for the extended period then what we
have seen this last week. High temperatures will be in the upper
60s on Saturday before cooling off into the upper 50s from Sunday
through Tuesday before reaching near normal temps on Thursday. Low
temperatures will remain in the mid 40s through the extended
forecast. Carrothers

Vfr conditions are expected through the evening. Conditions will
drop to ifr with any shower that moves through the area as it
becomes more widespread overnight. Winds will switch to the
southwest around 02z for areas east, but not including, klvm. Fog
has a potential to form over far southeast montana overnight.

Mountain obscurations will prevail overnight. Carrothers

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
