Much of the weather has been centered in the High Plains in the last few days, with high pressure parked in the eastern US. In the western US, the story has been the heat. What’s the story between, right in the northern Rockies?
At 1053PM, MT, Missoula was reporting a temperature of 65 degrees with clear skies. Missoula finds itself between two other features, with the trough contributing to the severe weather in rhw High Plains to the south, and a broad upper level trough in Hudson Bay draping a cold front east to west through the central Canadian Prairies.
All things will be moving to the south through the night, meaning the Canadian Cold front is the feature to take note of in Missoula. The heat wave inducing ridge is directed towards western Montana, which will slow the advance of the cold front until after the forecast period is through and notch up temperatures in the interim. Still, expect some increasing clouds which will help allay the heat on Tuesday afternoon.
