Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pocatello Idaho 
351 am MST Friday Dec 19 2014 


Short term...today through Sunday night. 
A Pacific system will move through southeast Idaho today with 
light snow mainly in the mountains. Expect 1 to 3 inches in the 
central mountains today with the same in the eastern Highlands 
potentially through tonight. System moving very quickly so heavy 
amounts not expected. Extensive Pacific moisture is expected to 
move back into the region late Saturday through Sunday night. A 
Winter Storm Watch has been issued from Saturday evening through 
Sunday night for the central mountains and eastern Highlands above 
6 thousand feet. Snow levels will start out at 4500 feet Saturday 
evening then rise to above 6500 feet Sunday afternoon before 
falling again Sunday night. Travel is expected to become very 
difficult across the mountains during the latter part of the 
weekend with passes above 7 thousand feet expected to get over a 
foot of snow. The Snake River Plain is expected to get mainly rain 
with this system. Snow amounts will be difficult and heavily 
elevation based. 5 to 6 thousand feet will likely be in the 3 to 6 
inch range with 6 to 12 inches from 6 thousand to 7500 feet and 
above a foot possible above that. Anyone traveling in the 
mountains this weekend should be prepared for hazardous roads. 
Gk 


Long term...Monday through Friday. Weekend system coming to an end 
during the day Monday with lingering precipitation higher elevations mainly 
south and East Highlands. Upper ridge amplifies for Tuesday. Next 
system drops into pacnw Tuesday night and reaches east Idaho for 
Christmas evening. GFS and ec both sharpen the trough as it drops 
through the pacnw. This should lead to warmer temperatures on Christmas evening 
ahead of precipitation onset late in the day most areas. Trough 
continues to amplify as it crosses east Idaho with 700mb and surface 
features deepening somewhere over northern Utah/east Idaho/western 
Wyoming. Each model keeps 500mb trough open and progressive with closed 
700mb circulation. Current solutions remain cold with sharp temperature 
differential Christmas evening to Christmas day...and cold enough to 
support snow at lower elevations for potential for white 
Christmas. Dmh 


&& 


Aviation...mix of VFR/MVFR in place over east Idaho early this 
morning. Moist system moving into the region later this morning 
expected to bring precipitation into central mountains including ksun by late 
morning with ceilings dropping to IFR and field minimums early afternoon. 
Precipitation spreads east into snake plain in the early afternoon as well with 
conditions dropping to IFR by evening. Temperatures warm enough to maintain 
rain at kbyi/kpih/kida terminals. System slips east overnight with 
precipitation ending ksun/kbyi during the evening and some clearing 
possible overnight. Vcsh not out of the question past 06z for 
kpih/kida with favorable west flow for continued stratus and light 
precipitation. Depending on timing...lingering showers could change to snow 
for kida/kpih if temperatures fall fast enough before precipitation fully ends. Dmh 


&& 


Pih watches/warnings/advisories... 
Winter Storm Watch from Saturday afternoon through late Sunday 
night above 6000 feet for the idz019-023-025-031-032. 


Winter Storm Watch from Saturday afternoon through late Sunday
