Discussion A cold front is moving across western montana this
afternoon. A couple of showers and thunderstorms have developed
across northwest montana and the glacier np area. Showers and a
few storms will impact this area until sunset.
The other weather impact is increasing gusty westerly winds across
the region coinciding with a cold front passing through. Wind
gusts of 20-30 mph are possible in some valley locations through
Monday through Wednesday we can expect dry conditions. A
northwesterly flow will keep temperatures in the 70s on Monday
with plenty of sunshine.
A ridge builds over the region Tuesday and Wednesday resulting in
warmer than normal temperatures into the mid and upper 80s by
Thursday atmospheric moisture and instability increase under an
increasing southwesterly flow. This combination will lead to
scattered thunderstorms across portions of central idaho and
southwest montana. There are indications some of this moisture
will reach further north into the flathead mission valley but
confidence is low at this time.
Models remain consistent for high pressure over the region labor
day weekend with a transition to cooler weather with a cold front
moving through the region Monday and Tuesday.
Aviation A few showers and isolated thunder are possible at
kgpi the rest of this afternoon. Otherwise all terminals can
expect breezy conditions through sunset. Some wind gusts at all
terminals could reach 25 to 30 knots at times. ExpectVFR
conditions at all terminals 25 0400 through 26 2300.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. 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.
