131 PM MDT Thursday Oct 23 2014 


Short term...tonight through Sunday. 


Stream of moisture is moving through the central mountains this 
afternoon. This is producing some rain showers and high elevation 
snow to parts of the mountains. The stream of moisture will remain 
nearly stationary over the area through tonight before moving slowly 
moving northward on Friday. Snow levels are sitting around 8500 feet 
with a couple inches of snow possible. As the stream of moisture 
moves north of Friday very warm air will pump into the region from 
the south. Many locations outside of the central mountains will see 
highs well into the 60s to near 70. Saturday looks warm and dry 
ahead of the next system. Expect highs to be in the low 70s for many 
locations which is only a couple degrees off the records. A strong 
cold front will sweep through the area Saturday night. This will 
bring much colder air to the area for Sunday with temperatures about 20 
degrees cooler. Snow levels will fall to around 6500 feet and there 
will be some showers around...mainly in the mountains and Highlands. 
A few of the mountain passes mainly going into Montana and Wyoming 
could see a couple inches of snow on them. 


Valle 


Long term...Sunday night through next Thursday night. Sun storm 
lingers into Monday with main focus of precipitation...including 
light snow...in the Idaho-Montana and Idaho-Wyoming border region. There is fairly 
good agreement between the GFS and European model (ecmwf) until the last 36 hours 
or so...although the GFS continues to be wetter. There is another 
weak trough Tuesday night into Wednesday. Most of the precipitation appears 
terrain induced in the upslope regions for the west northwesterly 
flow. At the tail end of this period...the GFS is actually drier 
than the European model (ecmwf) with a ridge building in. The European model (ecmwf) holds on with 
the troughing by about a day...drying out just after the end of 
this period. The bottom line is that this will be an active period 
with the risk of overnight snow even as low as the Snake River 
Plain. Thus...people need to start anticipating winter weather 
conditions this coming week and getting in that mind-set...so take 
measures now. Messick 


&& 


Aviation...mid-level ceilings should disappear during the overnight 
hours for the Snake River Plain and eastern Magic Valley airdromes 
as high pressure builds in a little bit more from the south. This 
will put the moisture plume coming in from the Pacific more squarely 
over the central Idaho mountains. Ksun expected to develop and keep 
low ceilings until late tonight...then lift to middle-level by opening Friday 
morning. No significant wind under the upper level ridge and no visibility 
impact with light rain only possible at ksun. Messick
