NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pocatello Idaho 
852 PM MDT Friday Sep 4 2015 


Update...did a quick update this evening to more closely match 
forecast grids with observational and model trends. Middle level 
frontal circulation has set up over the area...and this combined 
with adequate moisture and jet dynamics in association with a deep 
closed low over the pacnw has resulted in an increase in 
precipitation over the eastern Highlands and portions of the 
central mountains. This combined with a downward nudge in snow 
levels across the central mountains resulted in a slight uptick 
in expected snowfall totals overnight...though with no 
significant change in anticipated impacts. A few strong 
thunderstorms will continue over the eastern Highlands for the 
next several hours...with the main impact being gusty winds. Ad

Previous discussion... /issued 149 PM MDT Friday Sep 4 2015/ 


Short term...elongated closed low currently extends from southern 
British Colombia southward through Oregon. This low will gradually 
wobble eastward through tomorrow before rapidly lifting out of the 
region on Sunday. This is an anomalously deep low for this time 
of year...with 500mb heights and temperatures prognosticated to be around three 
Standard deviations below climatology. What this means in terms of 
sensible weather impacts is that temperatures will be 10 to 20 
degrees below normal on Saturday...and only slightly warmer on 
Sunday. This cold combined with plenty of available moisture will 
mean gradually falling snow levels tonight into tomorrow. After 
coordination with surrounding offices and considering impacts 
associated with the Holiday weekend have made the decision to 
hoist a Winter Weather Advisory for 1 to 4 inches of snow from 
noon Saturday through 9 am Sunday for Central Mountain zones above 
7000 feet. Those planning outdoor activities will need to dress for 
the cold and wet conditions. Cannot rule out some patchy slush on 
roadways at pass level at times...especially overnight. Outside of 
the central mountains expect scattered showers and isolated 
thunderstorms from this afternoon through tomorrow 
evening...particularly across the eastern Highlands. Will also be 
potential for some snow across the higher elevations of the 
eastern Highlands late Saturday night into Sunday morning...but 
with more limited moisture snow amounts will likely be limited to 
less than one inch. A dry slot will punch across the Snake River 
Plain late tonight...ending precipitation chances there by 
Saturday morning. Precipitation should end across the eastern 
Highlands Saturday night and across the central mountains Sunday 
morning as dryer air rapidly races into the area from south to 
north. Expect dry but breezy conditions on Sunday...particularly 
across the Snake River Plain and eastern Highlands. Ad 


Long term...rather benign conditions expected for the long term 
as mainly dry zonal flow sets up across the region. A weak wave 
embedded in the flow will pass through Montana on Monday...which 
will result in increased cloud cover across the north...along with 
a slight chance for an isolated shower. A similar disturbance may 
ripple through the flow around midweek as well...with again 
increased shower potential across the north. Guidance in 
reasonably good agreement in its depiction of indicating a building 
ridge across the West Coast by late week... lending increased 
confidence in continued moderation of surface temperatures to 
above normal from midweek through the end of next week. Ad 


Aviation...an upper level low system currently over Washington and 
Oregon is starting to bring breezy winds across the Snake River 
Plain this afternoon. Additionally...look for vicinity thunderstorms 
for ksun...kida and to an lesser extent for kpih later this 
afternoon through early evening. Expect vicinity showers overnight 
for kpih...kida and ksun. Also...look for a chance of showers and 
thunderstorms as well as moderate to strong winds again on Saturday 
afternoon. Wyatt 


Fire weather...red flag warning in effect for gusty winds and low 
humidity for zone 427 as well as 413 below 5000 feet from 1 to 10 
PM. Expect strong southerly winds ahead of the cold front in these 
zones with gusts of 25 to 35 miles per hour expected this afternoon into early 
evening with minimum humidity around 13 to 20 percent. Look for 
windy conditions in those zones Saturday as well behind the cold 
front. However... humidity will be substantially higher with much 
cooler temperatures. Expect wetting rains today and Saturday mainly 
in our northern zones 475...476 and 422 as the upper low pushes east 
through northern Idaho. Also...look for 1 to 4 inches of snow above 
7000 feet mainly in the central mountains. Wyatt
