NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pocatello Idaho 
237 PM MDT Sat Apr 19 2014 


Short term...a low pressure disturbance is moving into the 
Pacific northwest this afternoon. Most of the energy stays north 
in The Pan handle area...maybe a slight chance of showers as far 
south as Salmon toward morning. A cold front is expected to develop in 
Washington and Oregon...the surface pressure gradient increase in 
the eastern Magic Valley...lower snake plain and south Central 
Highlands just before sunrise Sunday morning. Surface winds should 
pick up to 15 to 25 miles per hour. Combination of winds and some high clouds 
will result in morning lows in that area in the lower 40s. High 
pressure ridge then crosses the area Sunday evening and Monday. 


Models have taken a slower trend with respect to the low pressure 
system expected to develop in the eastern Pacific...increasing the 
amplitude and slowing the arrival of precipitation in the central 
mountains until Monday night. The main trough moves over southeast 
Idaho on Tuesday. An early estimate of rain in the central mountains 
between Sun Valley and Challis could range from .25 to .50 inch. 
Snow levels will be around 8500 feet elevation initially...then 
lower during the day Tuesday. A half foot of snow on the upper 
slopes is not out of the question. Also not out of the question is 
the potential for rain on snowpack and rapid rise on small 
streams. Areas to watch will be Valley Creek and the Beaver Creek 
wildfire fire scar near Hailey. Rain fall further east towards 
Rexburg could be less...will have to take the forecast a step at a 
time. Receiver station 


Long term...Tuesday night through Saturday night. Expect an exiting 
system across the area Tuesday night into Wednesday. Cold air will 
likely move in quick enough to bring light snow for the upper Snake 
River Plain and to an lesser extent the lower Snake River Plain 
before precipitation ends on Tuesday evening. Expect light to 
moderate snow showers across mainly the eastern Highlands and upper 
snake Highlands through early Wednesday afternoon. Drier air will 
move in across the area Wednesday bringing gusty winds particularly 
in the afternoon. Expect upper level ridging to move into the area 
late Wednesday into Thursday. Models are coming more into alignment 
with the next system. Expect another good chance of precipitation 
Friday afternoon through Saturday morning. Expect below normal 
temperatures Wednesday and Thursday before becoming near normal to 
slightly above normal Friday and Saturday. Wyatt 
&& 


Aviation...a weak wave will move over northern Idaho and Montana 
early tomorrow morning. Expect breezy winds this afternoon over the 
eastern Magic Valley and Snake River Plain. There will be a slight 
break in the winds early this evening before they pick up early 
tomorrow morning and remain breezy to moderate through tomorrow 
afternoon. Wyatt
