NWS Forecaster Discussion

Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Boise Idaho 
853 PM MDT Friday Sep 4 2015 

Discussion...scattered showers around the area have enhanced 
winds from a secondary cold front moving through. Gusty winds of 
around 40 miles per hour were reported at several sites this evening. 
Currently the front is located just east of Glenns Ferry and 
moving east. This feature is associated with a closed low that is 
still anticipated to move over the area overnight...keeping 
rain/snow chances in the forecast through Saturday...mainly in the 
mountains. Snow levels expected to drop to near 5500 feet in eastern 
Oregon and 6500-7000 feet elsewhere by Saturday morning. While quantitative precipitation forecast 
amounts have been low with these showers...repeated rainfall 
overnight into Saturday morning could add to the potential for 
mudslides or landslides. Therefore...Flash Flood Watch remains in 
effect for the burn scars in Baker and northern Malheur counties 
in Oregon. No changes made to the current forecast as probability of precipitation and 
temperatures still look representative. 


Aviation...scattered-numerous showers will continue overnight... 
with isolated thunderstorms until 06z. VFR will prevail...but MVFR 
conditions are possible in the higher terrain. Mountains obscured. 
Cold front will continue to move through SW Idaho this 
evening...with gusts to 35 knots along the front. Northwest surface 
winds 15-25 knots behind the front this evening...diminishing to 
less than 15 knots after 06z. Winds aloft up to 10k feet mean sea level...SW 
15-30 knots shifting to the northwest. 

Weekend outlook...low VFR and local MVFR ceilings with heavier 
showers can be expected Saturday...with isolated thunderstorms in 
the afternoon. VFR conditions Sunday with decreasing clouds and 
precipitation exiting to the east. Gusty westerly winds surface and 
aloft Saturday will weaken Saturday night and Sunday. 


Previous discussion... 
short term...tonight through Sunday...a strong upper level low 
moving in from the west will impact our weather through the short 
term. The low was centered along the Oregon coast as of 2 PM MDT. 
This low will swing into eastern Oregon by 12z Saturday...then lift 
into northern Idaho by 00z Sunday. As it approaches this evening...all 
models indicate an increase in winds moving from west to east. 
This is an indication of a secondary cold front...possibly 
combined with an outflow from convection...that will bring gusty 
winds mainly to the southern half of our area. This increase in winds 
will move through southeast Oregon late this afternoon into early 
evening...arrive at Ontario between 6 and 7 PM...Boise between 8 
and 9 PM...Mountain Home between 9 and 10 PM...and the western 
Magic Valley between 11 PM and midnight. Isolated brief gusts 
30-40 miles per hour are possible...although generally gusts will be 20-30 
miles per hour. 

Moderate rainfall is expected to be ongoing over eastern Oregon as of 
00z...and as the low moves closer this rainfall could last 
overnight and through Sat morning. Therefore...a Flash Flood Watch 
has been issued for two burn scars in eastern Oregon...the Eldorado 
and the combined cornet/Windy Ridge. Rainfall amounts are not 
likely to cause problems outside of the burn scars. However... 
within the scars...mudslides/landslides are possible and these can 
be extremely dangerous. Please be aware if you will be traveling 
on U.S. Highway 26 through or near the Eldorado Pass...or on State 
Highway 245 south of Baker City. 

Saturday afternoon there is still a chance for showers and even 
a slight chance of thunderstorms over most of the area. Saturday 
evening the chance of showers and thunderstorms shifts 
significantly east as the upper low moves farther away. By late 
Saturday night...the showers will be confined to the west-central 
and Boise Mountains by Sunday afternoon...the chance of rain is gone. 

Temperatures will be cool tomorrow in the wake of the secondary cold 
front this evening...with highs in the lower to middle 60s in the 
lower valleys Saturday. Closer to the upper low...and with more 
clouds and precipitation...Baker City is not expected to get out of the 
50s tomorrow. As the upper low moves away...we will see a 5 to 10 
degree warmup for Sunday. Overnight lows tonight will be 
cool with middle 40s in the valleys...but will be even cooler Sunday 
morning...lower 40s in the winds become light and we 
experience mostly clear skies. 

Long term...Sunday night through Friday...northwesterly flow will 
develop over the Pacific northwest for dry conditions through the 
remainder of the forecast period. A gradual warming trend is 
expected. Temperatures will be 5 to 10 degrees below normal 
Monday...warming back to near normal by Wednesday...and then going 
above normal Thursday and Friday.
