NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pocatello Idaho 
205 PM MDT Thursday Jul 31 2014 


Short term...expecting isolated thunderstorms mainly over the 
mountains this afternoon and evening since there is little in the 
way of forcing other than orographic lift...and much of that should 
be focused in the central mountains. Thunderstorms in the central 
mountains at least should be more active Friday with an embedded wave 
off the Pacific moving through Oregon and northern Idaho. More 
support is also present in the eastern Highlands from Bear Lake to 
Palisades Reservoir. Both the GFS and NAM models support a limited 
surge of monsoon moisture moving north from eastern Nevada by 
Saturday morning. Early morning timing of of a disturbance crossing 
California to Idaho could be a set up for thunderstorms and 
lightning to develop near sunrise in the eastern Magic Valley. 
Activity then expands north and east through the day. 


Long term...Sunday through Wednesday...by Sunday...the high pressure 
ridge shifts a little further east over Montana and Wyoming which 
should focus afternoon thunderstorms in the south central...eastern 
and upper snake Highlands. The GFS model in particular brings yet 
another surge of monsoon moisture to Idaho on Monday. Then more 
zonal flow off the Pacific Tuesday and Wednesday. Receiver station 


&& 


Aviation...more of the same expected. We will see daily showers and 
thunderstorms. Expect VFR weather except with stronger storms where 
the potential for reduced ceilings and visibility due to heavy 
rainfall. Gusty outflow winds are also possible. Keyes 


&& 


Fire weather...we can expect more of the same with showers and 
thunderstorms each day across the region. We should see isolated to 
widely scattered storms today and Friday...although we will be very 
close to seeing scattered storms in some mountainous areas. For 
now...that will keep US out of red flag conditions for areas 
currently with critical fuels. Saturday and Sunday may indeed see 
higher coverage of storms areawide due to a slight increase in 
monsoon moisture and a couple of stronger disturbances moving 
through. We may need red flag headlines for one or both days based 
on the current trends. Heavy rain and gusty outflow winds are the 
main threats. Due to the nature of this pattern...we are still 
dealing with some uncertainty daily as the models tend to not pick 
up some details until right before an event begins. Keyes 


Pih watches/warnings/advisories...none.
