NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pocatello Idaho 
317 am MST Monday Mar 2 2015 


Short term...today through Wednesday night. Trough moving in from the 
north will merge with moisture coming up from the south tonight. 
While it will mean heavy precipitation for Utah and western 
Colorado...some moderate amounts will develop overnight southeast 
of a line that runs from just east of Burley to the Macks Inn area 
near the meeting Point of Mt-WY-ID. For the last few runs...the 
24 hour snow from this evening through Tuesday late afternoon is 1 to 
3 inches in the Snake River Plain. With the general northwest 
flow aloft...the rain shadow should be on the Mud Lake-Arco-Carey 
side of the Snake River Plain...with enhanced areas in the 
interstates 15 and 86 corridor. Also...5 to 8 inches are possible 
in some of the pass areas along the Idaho-Wyoming border. So have issued 
Winter Weather Advisory for ton and Tuesday in these areas. Snow 
clears up Tuesday evening. Quite a discrepancy continues on 
temperatures expected...believe NAM is too cold...but have not 
seen biases of late...so will leave alone for now. Current 
forecast appears to be a compromise...with a little more nod to 
the GFS...which is what I likely would have done. Windy conditions 
expected tonight and Tuesday in vicinity of the front...but should 
stay below advisory criteria. 


Long term...Thursday through Monday night. GFS and European model (ecmwf) have a 
difference of opinion with the Friday/Sat period. The European model (ecmwf) drops an 
upper trough into Idaho Friday night with light snow along The Divide and 
the Wyoming border. Previous runs of the GFS had this feature moving through 
on Friday...but the 00z run has dropped the trough completely and 
maintains the upper ridge as the dominant feature through the extended 
period. Will keep slight chance of light snow in the NE corner near 
The Divide Friday and Sat...staying closer to the GFS solution. Temperatures 
will br above normal through the weekend and into early next week.

Aviation...VFR conditions expected through this evening...but an upper 
trough dropping in from the north tonight will spread snow across the 
region toward Tuesday morning. Ceiling/visible expected to deteriorate by Tuesday morning.
