Discussion We will be watching two winter events impacting the
northern rockies during the day today. First, a warm front is
currently moving northeast through north-central idaho into west-
central montana this morning. So far only light precipitation has
been reported, with possible light freezing drizzle rain in the
grangeville and orofino areas. Though we are not anticipating any
issues in these areas, as most of the precipitation will be
moving out soon after sunrise, along with warming temperatures.

We are expecting further development in precipitation as the
moisture moves into western montana. Light snow is expected to be
falling this morning across west-central montana, including the
missoula bitterroot valleys for the morning commute. This first
wave of snow isn't expected to last long, maybe a few short hours
this morning. As the warm front moves further north later this
morning and early afternoon, it will interact with a cold front
pushing west across the continental divide. The flathead valley
east to marias pass is where we expect the higher snow amounts for
this winter event. Gusty easterly winds with low visibility due
to blowing snow can also be expected in these areas.

This afternoon a cold front and a second surge of moisture will
move west to east from washington into western montana. This
second wave will bring significant snow accumulations to the
mountains of western montana and north-central idaho. This
airmass will continue to overrun the colder airmass pushing west
over the divide, which will continue to enhance the snowfall over
northwest montana. By Friday morning, some of the valleys could
end up with 5 or 6 inches of snow, with the mountains receiving
up to a foot. Some forecast models have this enhanced snowfall as
far south as the interstate 90 corridor, which could bring further
snow accumulations to areas such as missoula east to the
seeley swan and upper blackfoot regions. This will be watched
closely, as the system evolves through the day. All winter
weather advisories issued yesterday, remain in effect, with the
missoula bitterroot valleys and the butte blackfoot region added
overnight. Further details on the advisories can be found by

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.
