National Weather Service Glasgow Montana
524 am MDT Tue Oct 22 2019

shortwave expected to slide through the northwest flow today, to
dig another trof over the Central Plains. A weak boundary sets up
over eastern Montana, and the shortwave will slide south along
this boundary tonight. This will be the focus for most of the
precipitation tonight, and with temperatures falling expect rain
to switch to snow, with accumulations possible.

Winds will be stronger west of the front with upper flow breifly
turning perpendicular to the northern rockies in the late
afternoon. Storm Prediction Center still has the region outlined for generally
thunderstorms with the potential for some of the winds to be
pulled down by convective instability, but not sure how much
thunder will occur.

Upper ridge will bring warm and dry weather back to the region for
Thursday and Friday, before the next trof brings another round of
cold temperatures and scattered snow showers. Ebert


VFR most of today, becoming MVFR overnight with rain and snow showers
