NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pocatello Idaho 
214 PM MST sun Dec 21 2014 


Short term...tonight through Tuesday night. Precipitation rates have 
dropped from overnight and trends on radar support lower amounts 
going forward. Snow levels have risen today from around 5800 to 
6000 feet to around 6500 to 7000 feet and several Mountain Valley 
locations have changed from snow to rain today. Going forward 
expect precipitation amounts to continue to decline as snow levels 
fall to 4500 to 5000 feet overnight. Precipitation expected to be 
confined mainly to mountainous regions overnight with snow ending 
in the central mountains by middle-morning Monday and in the eastern 
Highlands by Monday evening. Additional mountain snow amounts 
overnight expected to be between 2 and 5 inches. Windy conditions 
will continue in the snake plain with sustained speeds of 25 to 35 
miles per hour and gusts to 50 miles per hour into this evening. Winds will gradually 
decrease overnight to 15 to 25 miles per hour in the snake plain for Monday. Dsh 


Long term...Wednesday through Sunday. Models have continued to 
bring a system into the area Wednesday night or Christmas evening 
through Christmas morning. Expect 3 to 5 inches of snow for the 
mountains and 1 to 2 inches of snow for valleys. However...there is 
some uncertainty still whether or not temperatures will drop fast 
enough before the precipitation stops. Valley floors particularly 
from Pocatello westward to Burley may see just a trace of snow. 
Look for colder temperatures Christmas day to the end of the period. 
Models are continuing to bring another system late Saturday into 
Sunday. This system will bring light to moderate snow chances. Wyatt 


&& 


Aviation...an exiting system is bringing moderate to strong winds 
for the taf sites across the Snake River Plain and eastern Magic 
Valley. Look for winds to impact taf sites until around midnight. 
Expect lingering MVFR ceilings for kpih and kbyi before becoming VFR 
this afternoon. Ceilings will drop back down to MVFR/IFR for kida...kpih 
and kbyi early to middle evening tonight. Look for kbyi and kpih to 
become VFR by middle to late tomorrow morning and kida to lift to VFR 
by early to middle tomorrow afternoon. Ksun should stay VFR through the 
period. Wyatt
