NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pocatello Idaho 
249 PM MDT Friday Oct 31 2014 


Short term...today through Monday. A strong Pacific storm system 
is currently located off the Pacific coast. Moisture is streaming 
into Oregon and Washington and northern California currently with 
a strong jet core just off the Southern California coast. Expect 
dry conditions this afternoon into early evening with lingering 
high pressure ridging. Expect southerly winds this afternoon with 
gusts of 30 to 35 miles per hour. 


Tomorrow this Pacific system starts to move over Idaho. Frontal 
passage will occur late afternoon into early evening. Look for 
winds to become even stronger by late morning with gusts up to 50 
to 55 miles per hour. A Wind Advisory has been issued for all our southern 
zones including the eastern Magic Valley and the lower Snake River 
Plain from 10 am to 9 PM MDT. The upper Snake River Plain may be 
needed to be included to the Wind Advisory..but currently winds will 
be gusty of around 35 miles per hour. Strong downslope southerly winds will 
make driving hazardous particularly along I-84 where blowing dust 
could shut down the Interstate briefly. Precipitation will start 
in the afternoon for our western borders and move across the area. 
Cold air will start moving in from the west by late Saturday 
afternoon dropping snow levels from 8000 feet to 5500 feet by 
Saturday evening. Snow levels will drop to the valley floor by 
late Sunday morning. Look for 5 to 8 inches of snow for above 5500 
feet for the central mountains and eastern Highlands where a 
Winter Storm Watch has been issued from 3 PM MDT Saturday until 5 
PM MST Sunday. Expect 1 to 3 inches of snow across the valley 
floor. Much of the snow will diminish by Sunday afternoon though 
lingering snow will be possible along our eastern edges through 
Monday morning. Wyatt 


Long term...weak high pressure ridging for Monday night will be 
followed quickly by another upper level trough moving through the 
Idaho Panhandle Tuesday morning. Precipitation expected initially 
over the central mountains Tuesday morning will weaken and spread 
east into the upper snake Highlands Tuesday afternoon. Relatively 
flat ridging will rebound somewhat for the rest of the week with 
moisture and precipitation threat remaining north of the forecast 
area through Friday. Dsh 


&& 


Aviation...widespread VFR and light to moderate winds with high 
pressure ridging remaining over the region through tonight. 
Approaching system will increase winds tomorrow with sustained wind 
speeds of 25 to 35 miles per hour and gusts to 50 miles per hour from the southwest in the 
southern snake plain. Precipitation is expected beginning middle-day 
with snow levels starting at 8000 feet mean sea level and dropping to 4500 feet 
by Sunday morning. Dsh
