NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pocatello Idaho 
114 PM MDT Thursday Jul 24 2014 


Short term...tonight through Saturday night. Dry weather will 
continue as we head into the weekend. We are seeing full mixing of 
strong winds and very dry aloft to the surface this afternoon. 
Sustained winds of 15-30 miles per hour with higher gusts are common...with 
sustained winds upwards of 35 miles per hour are ongoing across portions of 
the snake plain. Needless to say...the Wind Advisory will remain 
in effect through this evening across the snake plain. With dry 
air in place...we will see rather cool overnight lows during this 
period. There will be plenty of 40s for the valleys and 20s/30s in 
the mountains. In fact...some higher mountain valleys will see a 
freeze tonight. We will be flirting with records tonight for 
Stanley...Challis and Idaho Falls. A gap wind will keep things a 
bit warmer for Pocatello and Burley. On the flip side...the dry 
air will allow for a nice warm up each afternoon. Temperatures 
overall will gradually warm up. It will be less breezy each day as 
high pressure slips back toward US. Keyes 


Long term...Sunday through next Thursday. Monsoon moisture 
begins creeping back into eastern Idaho for Sunday and beyond. We 
may see a rogue dry thunderstorm develop closer to the Utah border 
Sunday afternoon. It appears though that better development will 
wait until Sunday night or Monday as deeper moisture arrives. 
Monday may be the day with better coverage...as the models 
continue to shift the ridge axis back to the northwest and over 
the state. The models are showing moisture rotating through 
eastern Idaho for some chance of thunderstorms each day. We will 
back into 90s and likely some humidity to make it feel a bit 
sticky. Keyes 


&& 


Aviation...VFR conditions are expected through the period. Windy 
conditions will persist until sunset as a dry cold front exists the 
region. Dry and warm conditions will continue through the weekend 
with breezy afternoons. 
Ep 


&& 


Fire weather...gusty winds have ramped up as expected today across 
much of the area behind a dry cold front that has been moving 
through. Relative humidities continue to drop and are expected to 
bottom out below 15 percent for many locations. The red flag warning 
for the critical zones 422 425 427 and 410 will continue through 9 
PM tonight. After sunset winds will calm...and dry and warm 
conditions are expected to continue through the weekend. The next 
chance of thunderstorms looks to return sometime early next week 
with the return of monsoon moisture. Ep
