Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED National Weather Service Missoula MT 1232 AM MDT Sun Jun 16 2024

The forecast remains on track, so only minor changes were necessary to the previous discussion (below).

...Snow Storm to hit Elevations of 4500 feet and Higher Tonight into Monday...


DISCUSSION...We expect the coldest part of the trough to rotate south over our region later today, and eventually a piece of energy in the middle atmosphere is expected to close off and rotate over Lemhi County, ID, further lowering snow levels to the north and west of its track. As such, today will be cool, overcast, and breezy. Shower activity initially will be limited to the Canadian border and will expand further in the late afternoon south of I-90.

Overnight conditions get progressively cooler and with snow levels lowering across the region down to about 5000 feet. There is increasing confidence of a mid-level low pressure system closing off and developing a deformation zone during the late night hours. There is model consensus that this deformation zone will develop over far southeastern Clearwater County into the southern Bitterroot Valley, and eventually moving east of Missoula along I-90 towards southwest Montana. Under the deformation zone, snow levels will likely lower an additional 1000 to 1500 feet, bottoming out around 4000 to 4500 feet. We have added Clearwater County (southeastern portion) and the Bitterroot Valley to the Winter Storm Watches for concerns involving back country users in Idaho and the potential for power outages due to downed tree limbs in the Bitterroot Valley. As little as 1 to 2 inches of heavy wet snow will be sufficient on leafed tree branches to cause breaks and/or potential power outages.

In general, Monday will be a wet and raw day. Plan accordingly for any outdoor plans, as hypothermia can happen even in June.

Tuesday, a secondary wave drops out of Canada and scattered showers redevelop. Snow levels rise above 6000 feet, but snow showers will remain possible in Glacier National Park.

Cloud cover and precipitation will spread from north to south today as a low pressure system in Washington circulates and moves into Idaho and western Montana. Blustery winds will exist this afternoon, with snow levels lowering this evening and overnight. Precipitation in the form of rain is expected below 5000 feet, with snow expected above 5000 feet late Sunday into Monday.

MT...Winter Storm Watch from late tonight through Monday afternoon for Bitterroot/Sapphire Mountains...Butte/Blackfoot Region...Potomac/Seeley Lake Region.

Winter Storm Watch from Monday afternoon through Tuesday evening for West Glacier Region.

Winter Storm Watch from late tonight through Monday morning for Missoula/Bitterroot Valleys.

ID...Winter Storm Watch from Sunday evening through Monday afternoon for Southern Clearwater Mountains.
