NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pocatello Idaho 
300 am MDT Tuesday Sep 23 2014 


Short term...today through Thursday night. A second trough will pass 
to the northwest of the forecast area...grazing the central Idaho 
mountain zones. It has been unstable enough to have thunderstorms 
even at this hour...so have kept some isolated thunderstorms for 
this afternoon and evening. This trough has dipped a bit further 
south than yesterdays thinking and so forecasted slight chance 
probability of precipitation in the northwest portions of the forecast area into Wednesday and 
Thursday. Elsewhere and otherwise...the high pressure is producing 
clear skies and a southerly flow that will mean near record warmth 
for Wednesday and Thursday. On Thursday night...an intense low from the Pacific 
has moved onshore and begins to bring rain into Idaho. Along with 
some gusty wind...the warm sector of the storm will keep 
temperatures fairly mild at least through the near term periods. 
Messick 


Long term...Friday through next Monday night. Was hoping to see the GFS 
and European model (ecmwf) reconcile themselves about the timing of heavy 
precipitation with the intense low that starts influencing Idaho 
weather at the end of the near term period. Guidance is starting 
to introduce large temperature swings...but the European model (ecmwf) continues to 
make sun the biggest day...while the GFS continues to make it Friday 
night and Sat...with much less on sun. Have thus made broad 
sweeping cloud/pops/weather grids with nothing quite going 
categorical and no one completely dry...although that will be the 
case eventually for the forecast area. Strong gusty wind can be 
expected...and snow is possible at very high 
elevations...signalling the end of Summer-like weather--well...at 
least for the rest of September. Skies do not clear during this 
time...but when it does...a hard freeze would be the next weather 
situation to watch out for. The wpc discussions indicated a 
preference for the GFS solution...as the operational European model (ecmwf) is an 
outlier compared to its ensemble solutions. Am still hedging my 
bets with a compromise between the two guidance suites. Messick

light winds across the region today. 


Valle

Fire weather...high pressure will produce warm and dry conditions 
through Thursday. Breezy conditions will develop for Wednesday and 
Thursday afternoon as a strong low pressure system slowly moves 
towards the area. Expect wet weather for the weekend with the 
arrival of the low.
