NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pocatello Idaho 
147 PM MDT Sat Aug 30 2014 


Discussion...the low pressure trough moving through the Pacific 
northwest has at least two embedded waves in it. The first is making 
its way through the upper snake plain this afternoon. A fair amount 
of lightning with the thunderstorms which so far have been limited 
to areas north of Arco. A couple of cells have tried to develop a 
bit further south but so far have been on the week side. This will be 
a watch an see the next couple of hours for the state fair in 
Blackfoot. There will be a few hours break between this wave and the 
leading edge of the next wave moving into Oregon right now. The 
leading edge of that activity could reach close to Blackfoot about 
7-8 PM this evening...just in time for a sprinkle or isolated 
thunderstorm for late goers. The cells to the north have been on the 
wet side...Island Park has received 0.29 inches rain in the past 6 
hours...about .08 inches at Arco. The trough axis of the second wave 
should clear Idaho Falls close to sunrise Sunday...leaving a slight 
chance of showers in the afternoon north and east of Idaho Falls. 
Pressure gradient will keep winds on the breezy side but less than 
today...perhaps 10-15 miles per hour gust 25 miles per hour. The fair should avoid showers 
or thunderstorms the remainder of Sunday. High pressure ridge moves 
in Monday and Tuesday for dry conditions and temperatures rebounding 
a few degrees...winds ease off a little more. Models are still 
wrestling with the next trough Wednesday and Thursday. GFS wants to 
split the flow pattern...trying to cut off a circulation near 
northern California...while other models favor the trough staying 
consolidated and limiting most of the precipitation northward of 
this area as it passes. Keeping a slight chance of showers in the 
forecast...mainly on Thursday for now. Receiver station 
&& 


Aviation...expect VFR conditions through Sunday. Have vicinity 
thunderstorms this afternoon all sites but appears most likely at 
Ida. 10 to 20 knot sustained winds at pih...byi and Ida expected 
through 03z. Have vicinity showers with second wave tonight. 
Expect winds to increase again Sunday morning to the 10 to 20 knot 
range once again at byi...pih and Ida. 
Gk 


&& 


Fire weather...strong cold front has moved through eastern Idaho 
with much colder temperatures in place through Monday. An upper 
level trough will push through tonight and expect showers and isolated 
thunderstorms to continue mainly in mountain zones. Will have some 
breezy conditions especially in the Snake River Plain through 
Sunday. Wind gusts of 20 to 30 miles per hour are expected through early 
evening and again on Sunday. Expect dry conditions next week with 
a warming trend beginning Tuesday.
