Discussion Afternoon clouds will diminish by this evening and
lead to the biggest weather impact for the next several days.
Widespread freezing temperatures across much of western montana.
Of note will be the lower valleys of northwest montana and the
bitterroot missoula valleys. Some of these areas have reached the
freezing mark however tonight's freeze will be more widespread and
potentially freezing for several hours rather than just briefly
touching 32 degrees. Overnight lows may lower into the mid 20s in
portions of the bitterroot valley.
Temperatures may not quite make it to freezing in the camas
prairie but will lower enough to produce widespread frost with low
temperatures in the mid 30s.
Dry conditions will prevail through much of this week. Temperatures
will continue to be well below normal through Tuesday under a
light northerly flow on the lee side of a developing ridge of high
pressure. The ridge will finally establish itself over the region
by mid week and temperatures will return to near normal.|
It's looking like the ridge breaks down late in the week or next
weekend and westerly winds will increase under a zonal flow.
The potential for precipitation will increase under this pattern.
As is par for the course there is a lot of uncertainty for any
kind of details of precip location or amounts. That far out
Aviation Clouds will diminish this evening bringingVFR
conditions through Sunday morning. Kgpi and kmso may have a few
hours of vicinity fog between 24 1100z and 1300z. After thatVFR
through Sunday afternoon.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
