Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Billings MT 302 PM MST Wed Feb 24 2021

DISCUSSION. Rest of Today through Friday .

Modest lapse rates and some present CAPE is allowing very spotty snow showers to occur across south-central Montana as a weak stream of mid-level moisture moves across the area, with some producing snow pellets. Accumulations should be relatively light for any of these showers, but a quick inch or so of snow is possible for for the foothills, as well as the higher hills around Bighorn County. Snow showers should taper off this evening as downslope flow begins to take over.

High pressure quickly builds over Yellowstone National Park and Western Idaho tonight and tightens the pressure gradient over the mountains and foothills southwest-west of Billings, which bounces us right back to strong gap winds for the favorable areas around there, including Livingston, Big Timber, and Harlowton. With little to no snow cover near there allowing ample mixing potential, 50-55 kt winds at 700 mb, and rapidly lowering pressure over the plains, winds 55-65 mph are expected, with peak gusts likely occurring during Thursday afternoon. A lull in winds is expected Thursday night before they pick back up for an encore Friday morning, before finally diminishing as a cold front passes through later that day.

Speaking of, this cold front and associated, very broad trough will pass through Friday night that could bring some upslope and light snow to south-central Montana, with maybe some locally stronger snow occurring in favorable foothill locations like Red Lodge, or Story, WY.

Vertz

Saturday through Wednesday .

Still watching for some snow showers Saturday into Sunday, but amounts generally will likely be around an inch or less for most locations. Could not rule out some locations, especially towards the foothills could see some higher amounts.

Temperatures will start warming by Sunday and will be relatively seasonal through mid-week with some ridging building into the area. Highs will generally in the 40s with lows in the 20s. Monday night into Tuesday could see some more breezy conditions along the foothills. At this moment, gusts do not look of concern, however some ensemble members to show some stronger gusts, so it is something that may need watched.

AVIATION.

Scattered snow showers are expected through this afternoon. These showers could be moderate to heavy, and reduce conditions to MVFR or IFR locally. The best chance of getting heavy snow showers will be over the mountains/foothills and between KBIL and KMLS. Otherwise, VFR conditions wil prevail. Precipitation should decrease quickly early this evening. Strong winds will develop at KLVM after 06z tonight with gusts approaching 50kts towards 12Z. Reimer

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.
