Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Pocatello Idaho 209 PM MDT Tuesday Mar 31 2015 Short term...tonight through Friday. Cold front has pushed through eastern Idaho with winds picking up substantially early this afternoon. Wind advisories remain in effect tonight with winds expected to continue after sunset and through Wednesday. Expect to see some blowing dust on roadways near plowed fields. May need another Wind Advisory on Wednesday as well. Precipitation should be limited to the central mountains and upper snake Highlands overnight with little snow accumulation expected. Will have much colder conditions Wednesday and Thursday behind the cold front with high temperatures actually below normal for a change. Snow showers will be possible both days mainly in the mountains with showers Thursday likely more widespread. Will see some light accumulations at high elevations the next two days but should generally be under 4 inches. Upper ridge pushes in Friday and expect widespread dry conditions with some warming expected. Gk Long term...Friday night through Tuesday...progressive pattern expected through the extended as the ridge that had been a common feature over the western Continental U.S. Over the past several weeks breaks down. GFS...ECMWF...and their ensembles in reasonable agreement through the period...with GFS hanging onto the closed low a bit longer than the European model (ecmwf) early in the period which opens the closed low into a long wave trough sooner. Used a general GFS/European model (ecmwf) blend with a slight nod toward the GFS through the extended. Now for the details... Friday night through Sunday...region will reside beneath southwesterly flow aloft ahead of a closed low/trough that will move ashore early Sunday. What this means in terms of sensible weather is temperatures will moderate back to above seasonal norms by 5 to 10 degrees on Saturday and Sunday. Moisture will increase Sunday ahead of aforementioned trough...promoting rain and snow shower development beginning in the central mountains Sunday morning with the upper snake Highlands and eastern Highlands getting into the act by afternoon. Well mixed boundary layer later Sunday into Monday will tap into stronger winds aloft as the jet core rounds the base of the trough...producing gusty winds especially in the Snake River Plain. Upper trough will slowly slide eastward Monday into Tuesday...promoting showers these days...particularly in the afternoon and evening as cold air aloft combined with early April insolation steepens lapse rates. Overall precipitation amounts through the period should be relatively light as precipitable water values remain generally at or below climatology for early April...with highest quantitative precipitation forecast of a couple of tenths of an inch...across favored southwest facing slopes with much less precipitation in valleys. Main changes were to increase probability of precipitation and sky cover slightly Monday and Tuesday across the southern and eastern Highlands. Temperatures under this regime will be up to 10 degrees below climatology early next week. Upper heights will build over the region by midweek in response to a deepening trough digging across the eastern Pacific...allowing for a temperature rebound beginning by midweek. Ad && Aviation...a strong cold front has passed through the region this afternoon with gusty southwest-west winds up to 30-35 kts developing at byi..Ida..and pih. Look for lighter southwest gusts up to 20 kts at ksun by 00z. Some slight reductions in visibility may also be experienced at pih and Ida with bldu. Winds should decrease some this evening into the 10-20 knots range. A secondary boundary moves through around 06z increasing winds into the 15-25kt range once again..with these persisting through the taf period at byi...Ida...and pih. Mainly VFR conditions expected through the period...however ceilings may approach MVFR towards 06z and continuing through the morning with vcsh...with the exception of byi. Ad && Pih watches/warnings/advisories... Wind Advisory until 3 am MDT Wednesday idz017-021-022. Wind Advisory until midnight MDT tonight idz019-020-032. && $$
