NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pocatello Idaho 
154 PM MST sun Nov 23 2014 


Short term...tonight through Wednesday. A minor upper wave will 
move southeast through Idaho tonight spreading light snow to mainly the mountains 
expecting 1 to 3 inches in the central mountains and eastern Highlands. 
Only expect isolated snow/rain showers with minimal accumulations 
elsewhere. Upper ridging builds up over the West Coast on Monday... 
bringing an end to most of the precipitation. Snow showers will linger 
over the eastern Highlands Monday morning...diminishing during the afternoon. 
The break does not last long as another minor wave moves down the 
northwest flow into Idaho by Tuesday morning. This system...like the previous 
one...is expected to result in most of the precipitation in the mountains due 
to upslope enhancement. Accumulations of 3 to 6 inches in the 
central mountains and eastern Highlands...and less than an inch in the 
Snake River Plain. Precipitation tapers off by Wednesday morning as upper ridge 
building pushes the system off to the east . Hedges 


Long term...Wednesday night through next Sun night. 500mb 5-wave forecast has 
been somewhat unstable...never mind factoring in shortwaves...thus 
forecast during this time has low confidence...especially after Thursday 
night. Currently the longwave forecast is a transition from a 
low-amplitude ridge to troughing by the weekend. This is a strong 
change from a high amplitude ridge weakening to flatter zonal flow. 
And as previous shift indicated...there have been large changes in 
the GFS solution v. The European model (ecmwf). However...the GFS continues wetter 
with the features that come in after Thursday night. Temperatures are all 
over the place...and at this time of year makes for a very uncertain 
snowfall forecast...as temperature differences are large by Friday with 
the GFS much warmer and the European model (ecmwf) colder. The bottom line is do not 
be surprised as the forecast enters the short term for changes. 
However...Sat and sun have a threat of rain and snow for Holiday 
travel. I do not see the forecast becoming sunny and dry...but the 
difference is more rain versus snow...and possibly heavy snow.

Aviation...high moisture in the boundary layer continues an 
uncertain forecast for ceiling and visibility. There is a weak feature tonight 
that could generate mountain showers near kpih and kida...but on the 
whole expecting nothing but middle-level ceilings early this evening. By 
the late night...marginal VFR ceilings are possible with diurnal cooling 
and the clearing of the middle-level cloudiness at just the right time. 
There is a large disagreement between the GFS and NAM...but the NAM 
has been quite wrong lately and have less trust in it than two days 
ago. Have averaged out the ceiling forecast between the product suites. 
Visibility should be unrestricted...helped by a stronger-than-normal wind 
for much of tonight. No weather impact expected under the northwest 
flow at ksun. Messick
