Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pocatello Idaho 
130 PM MDT Tuesday Sep 30 2014 


Short term...tonight through Friday. 


A cold front is moving across east Idaho this afternoon. Showers and 
a few thunderstorms will persist ahead of the front. Expect a 
convergence event to work down the snake plain this evening and 
through the overnight hours. This will produce a second round of 
isolated to scattered showers across the snake plain tonight. 
Rainfall amounts with this second batch of showers should be 
relatively light...generally a tenth of an inch or less. On 
Wednesday...a secondary cold front will move through east Idaho and 
produced continued chances for scattered light rain showers...mainly 
along the eastern Highlands. Drier weather will arrive Wednesday 
night. Temperatures could be cold enough Thursday morning for a 
potential frost/freeze situation. However winds will likely stay up 
some which could keep the boundary layer somewhat mixed...preventing 
temperatures from falling drastically. Mentioning patchy frost for 
now...will continue to monitor for possible warnings/advisories. 
Expect warmer and dry conditions for Friday as a ridge of high 
pressure builds into the area. 


Valle 


Long term...Friday night through Tuesday. 


Quiescent conditions are expected to persist through 
the extended as a broad ridge remains in place over the western 
Continental U.S.. as a result...dry conditions were maintained through the 
period. Temperatures will average slightly above seasonal norms 
under this regime.

Aviation...clouds will decrease and no return of stratus or fog is 
expected with this drier airmass...aided by a breezy boundary layer. 
This is despite quite a bit of standing water...so the potential for 
stratus development is not zero...just highly unlikely at this time. 
Wind will subside slightly during the overnight and return to gusty 
conditions again Wednesday afternoon...fortunately with little cross-wind 
component for the major runway directions. Messick

Fire weather...note to our customers...the fire weather program 
will be reduced from two forecasts per day to one planning forecast 
issued in the morning starting October 1. Low pressure continues to 
be slow to move eastward and a second weaker cold front will pass 
through during the overnight hours...bringing some isolated to 
scattered showers to the fire weather district. By Wednesday morning...dry 
and cold air will have replaced the moist air mass currently over 
eastern Idaho. High pressure will have replaced the low...and 
weather for the remainder of the week will be dry and nearly cloud 
free. This will allow a warm up...but even valley temperatures will 
only be in the lower 70s with afternoon humidity staying in the 20 
to 30 percent range. After the fronts expected this afternoon and 
tonight...winds will be less gusty on Wednesday and Thursday...then light and 
variable winds for most of the rest of the seven day period.
