NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Boise Idaho 
348 am MDT Monday Aug 3 2015 


Short term...today through Tuesday...middle to high level clouds 
moving into the region from the south and southwest. For now...the 
convection is only associated with light showers and gusts between 
30-40 miles per hour in southeast Oregon and the Owyhee Mountains. Chance of 
showers and thunderstorm activity will increase from the southwest 
to the northeast...covering most of the region...as the shortwave 
moves quickly through...allowing atmospheric instability to 
increase along the way. Temperatures will come down to about 
normal today as the trough and associated clouds and showers move 
in. Clouds will progressively clear out behind the shortwave 
overnight allowing minimums to come down to about normal. 
Expecting a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms on Tuesday 
afternoon as well as an upper level trough pushes moisture and 
instability through...mostly along the Nevada border and in the 
higher terrain. Temperatures will stay about normal on Tuesday. 


Long term...Tuesday night through Monday...the upper low center and 
its upper trough will move across SW Canada and the Pacific northwest this 
week. High confidence that it will send a moist/active cold front 
across southeast Oregon and SW Idaho Wednesday...probably near maximum heating 
time. So with continued good model agreement have increased probability of precipitation for 
Wednesday and dried out Post-frontal dewpoints Wednesday night 
through Friday. Quantitative precipitation forecast differences are for the GFS to be wetter over southeast 
Oregon to Nevada Tuesday night and the ec to be wetter near the Nevada border 
than the GFS on Wednesday. The front looks to go stationary and 
desiccate near the Nevada border Thursday/Friday but could complicate 
the dry forecast late this week. Below normal temperatures with the 
trough will be short lived into Wed-thur...as an offshore low 
brings in warmer SW flow aloft and mild surface low over the County warning forecast area 
Friday and S-central Idaho Saturday. Average temperatures are now 
cooling off...and as is common by the end of the first week of 
August...another cold front will knock down temperatures...Sunday. 
Again for the 00z runs the GFS has moisture lingering farther 
west/Oregon/ and south/Nevada border/ across the area Sunday an 
Monday. 


&& 


Aviation...VFR with local MVFR wig in rain showers and 
thunderstorms lifting from near the Nevada border this morning to across 
central parts of Oregon/Idaho this afternoon. Southeast to SW winds 
increasing to 5-15 kts after 16z...except 10-20kts south of a 
kbno- kboi-kjer line until 06z Tuesday. Winds aloft near 10k feet 
shifting from southeast 15kts to SW 20kts after 18z.
