NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pocatello Idaho 
337 am MDT Wednesday Apr 23 2014 


Short term...today through Friday night. Weak high pressure will 
build in across the area today. Expect light showers in northwest 
flow across the uppers snake Highlands and northern central 
mountains today. Expect breezy to moderate winds across the area 
through this afternoon. Though winds have backed off slightly 
early this morning...expect moderate winds to return across the 
eastern Magic Valley and the Snake River Plain late this morning 
into the early evening. Thus...the Wind Advisory will be 
continued. Expect southwest flow over the area on Thursday. 
Showers will return by late Thursday afternoon as the next system 
approaches. The models continue to hint that there may be a split 
flow pattern. Currently this system looks to bring a good amount 
of precipitation Friday through Saturday morning. If a split flow 
pattern sets up our area...we could see considerably less 
precipitation. However...in the event our area sees considerable 
rain...look for increased chances of flooding with rain falling on 
snow. Snow levels will start around 7500 feet on Thursday and 
Friday before dropping to around 6000 feet Friday night. Expect 
below normal temperatures today before rising to near normal 
temperatures Thursday and Friday. Wyatt 




Long term...Saturday through Wednesday night. Both GFS and European model (ecmwf) 
develop the West Coast upper trough into a split flow system on Saturday 
with the southern stream upper low over Southern California. The upper low moves 
to southeast Colorado by Sun morning...with a trough extending northwest to Washington. Precipitation 
will be widespread on Sat...but diminishing somewhat Sat night and 
sun in the valleys. Snow levels will again be high. The upper trough 
begins to be pushed northward Sun night as ridging builds into the 
west. Only expecting isolated showers near The Divide on Monday as the 
ridge becomes more dominant. The ridge holds through Wednesday...resulting in 
dry and warmer conditions. The models do differ in the ridge 
placement on Wednesday. The ecm keeps the ridge over the West Coast states... 
while the GFS moves it into the plains states. Either scenario leads 
to basically the same outcome. Hedges 




&& 


Aviation...MVFR ceilings over the snake plain this morning will improve 
to VFR by late morning as upper ridging builds into the region. 
Isolated showers are possible in the mountains...and may show up at ksun 
today. Strong SW winds are expected to continue into the evening hours 
across the snake plain/eastern Magic Valley. Hedges 




&& 


Pih watches/warnings/advisories... 
Wind Advisory until 9 PM MDT this evening idz017-020-021.
