Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pocatello Idaho 
145 PM MDT Wednesday Jul 23 2014 


Short term...tonight through Thursday evening. We will see the 
low off the coast continue to swing inland and into southern 
Alberta tomorrow. Showers and storms across the central 
mountains eventually wind down this evening...with still a 
potential of gusty winds...brief downpours and maybe small hail. 
The cold front is still expected to swing across tonight...with gusty 
winds picking up especially in its wake. Speeds will peak between 
20-30 miles per hour sustained with higher gusts. We are still dealing with a 
wide spread in all of the guidance...with some data showing US 
possibly peaking in the 30-40 miles per hour range for sustained winds. 
Confidence is very high that we will hit the threshold for a lake 
Wind Advisory on American Falls Reservoir...but only low to 
moderate for a Wind Advisory for a more widespread area up and down 
the snake plain. We will let the midnight crew have one last 
crack at things to see how this will play out. It definitely will 
be cooler tomorrow. Highs will be in the 70s to lows 80s for the 
valleys and 60s for the mountains. This will be 10-15 degrees 
cooler than today...and 5-10 degrees below average for late July. 
Keyes 


Long term...Thursday night through next Wednesday. We will be 
under westerly flow heading into the weekend. It will be breezy at 
times especially during the afternoon and evening hours. It will 
be cooler though. Afternoon highs will run in the middle 70s to middle 
80s for many of US initially...finally pushing closer to 90 in 
some areas by Saturday. With the dry air in place...expect some 
cool low temperatures. Valleys will be in the 40s to low 50s in 
general. Mountain areas will be in the 30s and 40s...with the 
typical colder spots like Stanley and Copper Basin actually 
dropping into the upper 20s. As the next storm develops out in the 
Pacific...we will be back under southwest and pulling monsoon 
moisture into the state. Clouds will begin increasing Sunday but 
we should stay dry until Monday when deeper moisture appears to 
arrive. For right now...we will keep with a slight chance of 
showers and storms from that point Onward. Temperatures will push 
back into the 90s for the valleys next week...along with mild 
overnight lows especially on nights where the clouds are more 
prevalent. Keyes

Aviation...expect VFR and breezy conditions at all sites through 
the period. A cold front will be passing through southeast Idaho overnight 
tonight and into early Thursday...so winds will remain breezy 
overnight. Behind the front on Thursday afternoon...winds will 
increase with gusts in excess of 35 kts at kpih kida and kbyi. Ksun 
can expect gusts to 20 kts during this time. 
Ep 


&& 


Fire weather...breezy conditions can be expected this afternoon 
ahead of an upper low approaching the area. As the low continues 
moving east along the Canadian border tonight and into tomorrow...it 
will push a dry cold front through southeast Idaho. Currently expecting the 
front to approach the central mountains around midnight and spread 
through the eastern Highlands by 6 am. Behind the cold front...winds 
will increase through the day Thursday with gusts in excess of 35 
miles per hour in the snake plain and 25 miles per hour in the mountains. Conditions will 
also rapidly dry out so relative humidity values will begin to plunge through the 
day as well. Thus...the Fire Weather Watch has been upgraded to a 
red flag warning for zones 410...422...425...and 427 between 9 am 
and 9 PM. Winds are expected to calm after sunset. On Friday through 
the weekend...dry and warm conditions are expected to continue until 
monsoon moisture looks to return sometime early next week.
