Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Pocatello Idaho 213 PM MDT sun Aug 30 2015 Discussion...most of the precipitation associated with the trough crossing northern Idaho tonight should remain north of this area. Kept a slight chance of a shower in for a few hours this evening in Custer County. Winds in the upper snake plain are expected to drop off near sunset this evening. Both Monday and Tuesday are expected to be dry under flat westerly flow pattern. Models have slowed the development of the low pressure trough that develops middle week. There will still be a dry cold front coming in Wednesday for a breezy day. Another disturbance was expected on Friday but appears to be delayed enough to keep southeastern Idaho in warm southerly air until Saturday. High temperatures Friday were the single biggest change to the current forecast. Receiver station && Aviation...southwest flow continues today...but more stable conditions expected. Upper trough over central Washington may produce showers/thunderstorms over central mountains but models keep active weather north of ksun throughout the day. Thus expecting to keep VFR conditions going through the period. Winds expected to be gusty across the snake plain this afternoon/evening with strongest winds at kida with gusts up to 30 kts. Hinsberger && Fire weather...upper trough is making its way across central Washington/or with southwest flow ahead of it. Showers/isolated thunderstorms development is possible over the central mountains and into Lemhi County. A west/southwesterly flow will increase through the afternoon as the trough approaches with some ridge-top wind gusts near 35 miles per hour. Humidity is about 10 percent higher today on account of the cooler airmass...but we may see downslope winds create low humidity around the middle to upper teens in the valleys of fire zone 476 this afternoon. Not anticipating a red flag at this time...but will closely monitor relative humidity trends through the afternoon. Monday will generally be less breezy with no precipitation expected. Winds may pick up again Tuesday afternoon across the central mountains along a weak dry cold front...but the front will intensify on Wednesday as upper level support provides reinforcement. Look for possible thunderstorm development Wednesday afternoon/evening along with breezy conditions. Hinsberger && Pih watches/warnings/advisories...none. && $$
