... Much colder on Sunday...
A strong cold front will be through the area by early tomorrow.
Forecast highs are expected to be 15 to 20 degrees colder
tomorrow. Snow is likely above 6500 feet. Locations above 6500
feet in the central mountains could see 3 to 5 inches of
snow... this includes Galena pass. About 1 to 3 inches of snow is
possible above 6500 feet across the eastern and southern Highlands
which will mainly affect mountain passes going into Montana and
Wyoming along with Pine Creek Pass.

Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Pocatello Idaho 145 PM MDT Sat Oct 25 2014 Short term...tonight through Tuesday. Awaiting the arrival of the next storm system which is moving onshore this afternoon. Winds are picking up ahead of this system and are higher than models suggested. Winds are reaching advisory levels in the Pocatello area and will issue a Wind Advisory for the Pocatello area until 8pm tonight. Models are indicating marginal Wind Advisory level winds for Sunday afternoon across portions of the snake plain. Given that winds are stronger today than models suggested...believe Wind Advisory speeds likely for Sunday afternoon across from the Raft River area to Pocatello to Arco/Idaho Falls. Also believe there will be some clearing in the skies across the snake plain during the afternoon because of the strong winds. Some areas of blowing dust is possible as well. Much colder air will accompany this system. Sunday high temperatures will be 20 to 25 degrees colder than today. Still expect rain/snow showers across the mountains and Highlands beginning tonight and persisting through Sunday evening. Snow levels will be around 5500 feet in the central mountains to around 6500 feet in the eastern Highlands. Warm soil temperatures will probably limit snowfall amounts. Therefore not expecting much snow accumulation in the eastern/southern Highlands on Sunday. However still expect 2 to 6 inches from Galena Summit to the Stanley area. Drier weather will return for Monday and Tuesday. Valle Long term...Tuesday night through next Sat night. Trough passage expected during the early part of this time has shifted to farther north in its pattern...leaving probability of precipitation 10 to 15 percent lower than expected yesterday and both the GFS and European model (ecmwf) develop strong ridging during the middle part of this forecast from Wednesday through Friday. The European model (ecmwf) is quicker to break down this ridge on Sat/Sat night. Have compromised between the two solution in this divergent part...and had to leave some probability of precipitation in during the ridge situation to stay in coordination with surrounding offices. With the trough passing farther to the north...the wind is also not forecast to be as strong as previous thinking either...and temperatures stay warmer and thus warm more during the ridge time period...more than 10 degree f above normal highs for this time of year. Messick && Aviation...mid-level ceilings to develop during the evening tonight with very little rain expected. Ceilings should lower to below 6000 feet by airdrome opening on Sun morning. Ksun is the most at risk for marginal VFR...but statistics say no...so have left it just above marginal VFR for ceilings. Should stay as all -ra event...so no impact to visibility. Wind will subside and shift during the late afternoon/early evening...then another shift during Sun morning. Wind should stay elevated in the three valley airports...but ksun has the trickiest and lowest confidence forecast for wind in that it is usual that the front will pass overhead and leave wind light and variable...but with the late night clouds and strong winds...the inversion may not set up and allow the atmosphere to de-couple. Messick && Pih watches/warnings/advisories... Wind Advisory until 8 PM MDT this evening idz021. Wind Advisory from noon to 8 PM MDT Sunday idz020-021. && $$
