NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pocatello Idaho 
145 PM MDT Sat Oct 25 2014 


Short term...tonight through Tuesday. 


Awaiting the arrival of the next storm system which is moving 
onshore this afternoon. Winds are picking up ahead of this system 
and are higher than models suggested. Winds are reaching advisory 
levels in the Pocatello area and will issue a Wind Advisory for 
the Pocatello area until 8pm tonight. Models are indicating 
marginal Wind Advisory level winds for Sunday afternoon across 
portions of the snake plain. Given that winds are stronger today 
than models suggested...believe Wind Advisory speeds likely for 
Sunday afternoon across from the Raft River area to Pocatello to 
Arco/Idaho Falls. Also believe there will be some clearing in the 
skies across the snake plain during the afternoon because of the 
strong winds. Some areas of blowing dust is possible as well. Much 
colder air will accompany this system. Sunday high temperatures will be 
20 to 25 degrees colder than today. Still expect rain/snow showers 
across the mountains and Highlands beginning tonight and 
persisting through Sunday evening. Snow levels will be around 5500 
feet in the central mountains to around 6500 feet in the eastern 
Highlands. Warm soil temperatures will probably limit snowfall amounts. 
Therefore not expecting much snow accumulation in the 
eastern/southern Highlands on Sunday. However still expect 2 to 6 
inches from Galena Summit to the Stanley area. Drier weather will 
return for Monday and Tuesday. 


Valle 


Long term...Tuesday night through next Sat night. 


Trough passage expected during the early part of this time has 
shifted to farther north in its pattern...leaving probability of precipitation 10 to 15 
percent lower than expected yesterday and both the GFS and European model (ecmwf) 
develop strong ridging during the middle part of this forecast 
from Wednesday through Friday. The European model (ecmwf) is quicker to break down this 
ridge on Sat/Sat night. Have compromised between the two solution 
in this divergent part...and had to leave some probability of precipitation in during the 
ridge situation to stay in coordination with surrounding offices. 
With the trough passing farther to the north...the wind is also 
not forecast to be as strong as previous thinking either...and 
temperatures stay warmer and thus warm more during the ridge time 
period...more than 10 degree f above normal highs for this time of 
year. Messick 


&& 


Aviation...mid-level ceilings to develop during the evening tonight 
with very little rain expected. Ceilings should lower to below 6000 feet 
by airdrome opening on Sun morning. Ksun is the most at risk for 
marginal VFR...but statistics say no...so have left it just above 
marginal VFR for ceilings. Should stay as all -ra event...so no impact 
to visibility. Wind will subside and shift during the late afternoon/early 
evening...then another shift during Sun morning. Wind should stay 
elevated in the three valley airports...but ksun has the trickiest 
and lowest confidence forecast for wind in that it is usual that the 
front will pass overhead and leave wind light and variable...but 
with the late night clouds and strong winds...the inversion may not 
set up and allow the atmosphere to de-couple. Messick
