Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Missoula MT 248 AM MDT Mon Jul 13 2020

DISCUSSION. High temperatures today will remain about 10 degrees below average on the heels of a weak cold front that passed through the Northern Rockies on Sunday. Dry northwest flow will become the norm through midweek as a large-amplitude ridge builds over the eastern Pacific Ocean. This ridge will keep moisture at bay and allow daytime high temperatures to rebound to near-normal by midweek. By Thursday, flow begins to turn westerly ahead of a shortwave trough that begins its journey southeast across British Columbia. Bottom line: expect a dry week featuring near seasonal temperatures.

Next weekend will be the next chance for unsettled weather as a shortwave trough deepens over the Northern Rockies. However, confidence is still low on timing and intensity of any impacts as model ensemble members have yet to come into agreement.

AVIATION. Expect mostly clear skies and VFR conditions today. Winds will increase this afternoon at all area terminals and subside again by 14/0300Z. Fair weather will persist for most of the week.

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.

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 numerous 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.
