Discussion As expected, a rather robust mid-level atmospheric
disturbance has passed through the northern rockies overnight,
producing fairly widespread shower activity about the region. The
focus for precipitation will continue to shift north towards
canada and west into washington this morning, resulting in far
more scattered showers in its wake. However, it still seems that
glacier np and the bob marshall wilderness will see steady rain
continuing throughout the morning and the rest of today for that
matter. It is also worth noting that breezy east northeast winds
will continue today across flathead lake, resulting in locally
choppy conditions.

The next weather disturbance, seen as a mass of clouds along the
idaho nevada utah border this morning, will shift north and by
this afternoon become the initiating factor for yet another round
of showers. This time the focus will be across SW and west
central montana along with much of central idaho. All factors with
this feature are quite a bit weaker than the present one passing
through the region right now. But it does have the potential
benefit of added instability which comes through whatever daytime
heating is achieved today. Storm motion will be slow and from east
to west, so periods of brief heavy rain are the chief threat.

Showers tonight will gradually decrease across NW montana and in
idaho, yet still remain into Monday morning across much of sw
montana.

The models, which were formerly continuing the drying trend into
Monday, are now showing yet another possible weak disturbance
passing over the northern rockies as the larger upper level low
works its way through the great basin states. This time the tie in
with midwest moisture from the gulf of mexico seems quite likely
for very heavy rainfall across parts of central montana and
wyoming. While there is certainly an outside chance that some of
this deep atmospheric moisture may progress west of the
continental divide, it seems far more likely for it to remain to
our east. But it bears continued monitoring since storm motion
will ultimately be quite slow and any additional deep moisture
advection could produce very intense rainfall with stronger
showers and thunderstorms Monday afternoon. The potential for rain
should decrease Monday night as the main low lifts into colorado
and a drier easterly flow aloft develops over the region.

It will feel dramatically warmer, as much as 10 degrees warmer,
by Tuesday with high temperatures ranging from the 70s to 80s.

Also it will be mostly dry, with the exception for an isolated
shower or thunderstorm in central idaho. Despite the continued
warmth on Wednesday, it was previously noted that it would be a
dry day, but weather models have been trending more showery with
perhaps an isolated thunderstorm over central idaho. Both Tuesday
and Wednesday mornings will be cool in the high valleys with
temperatures falling into the 30s. While this is not that uncommon
for this time of year in these locations, it could still be an
issue for people who have sensitive plants outside. You may want
to bring them inside or cover them.

Thursday and Friday will be more unsettled as shower and
thunderstorm chances increase. Temperatures will generally be near
to above normal.

Confidence decreases for next weekend, but at this point it
appears to be unsettled with near normal temperatures.

Aviation Various upper level disturbances will bring a chance
for showers through Monday. Afternoon and evening thunderstorms
will bring mountain obscuration, reduced visibility and ceiling
and gusty winds to 25 knots. Stiff easterly winds will begin to
relax by 27 2100z when the pressure gradient is expected to
weaken some.

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.
