Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Boise Idaho 246 PM MST Thursday Feb 11 2016 Short term...tonight through Saturday...during this period...the large upper level ridge that has brought inversion conditions to the area for days will finally move off to the east and be replaced by a trough. This trough will move in Friday night and out again quickly by Saturday afternoon. An associated cold front should be enough to clear out the inversion as it moves through during the same time period. Until then...however...we are still dealing with what is left of the inversion for one more day. Highs on Friday will be similar to recent days for most of the area...although higher elevations will cool slightly while the inverted areas warm a little. There was a significantly smaller amount of low clouds and fog this morning over the area...with even more having burned off in the early afternoon hours. As of 2 PM MST...only the lower Treasure valley was still dealing with clouds below 2500 feet. We expect about the same thing tomorrow morning...as clouds overnight again work against fog and stratus formation. Temperatures Saturday will be warmer in lower elevations even though we will see a so-called cold front move through from Friday night through the first half of Sat. This is because the inversion will be removed. Upper levels will cool significantly compared to Friday...however. Precipitation will largely be confined to the northern sections of the County Warning Area...mainly Baker County and the west-central mountains but we have left low probability of precipitation further south as a few stray showers could develop as far south as the Treasure valley Saturday with the frontal passage. Long term...Saturday night through Thursday...models remain in relatively good agreement with a more active weather pattern in the extended period. A series of upper level troughs will move through the Pacific northwest for periods of precipitation over the forecast area. The first upper level trough will move southeast of the region Saturday night...but the northwest flow that will develop behind this exiting system is moist with the best chance of precipitation over the area Sunday. Snow level Saturday night will be between 4000-5500 feet and rise to 5000-7000 feet by Sunday evening. Flat upper level ridge will be over the region Sunday through Tuesday for warming temperatures and snow levels around 7000 feet. Due to the ridge being flat moisture will be moving through the flow for at least slight chance probability of precipitation over northern zones while southern zones will remain dry. High temperatures for Monday and Tuesday will be in the 40s in the mountains and in the 50s in the lower valleys with some isolated locations possibly reaching 60 degrees. Tuesday night into Wednesday models begin to diverge on the timing of the next upper level trough that will move into the West Coast...but will see increasing chance of precipitation over the area Tuesday night with precipitation lingering over the region through Thursday. High temperatures will cool to near normal by Thursday with highs in the 30s in the mountains and in the 40s to low 50s in the lower valleys. && Aviation...mostly VFR with scattered to broken middle and high level clouds. Expect MVFR conditions in low stratus and fog will redevelop after sunset...especially in the lower Treasure valley from keul-kono...but due to the cloud cover uncertain as to how far the fog and low stratus will spread across the region. Surface winds light and variable. Winds aloft southwest to west 10-20 knots up through 10k feet mean sea level. && Air stagnation...one more day of inverted conditions Friday...then it will be removed by a cold front on Saturday. This morning the inversion extended about 4000 feet above the ground according to the sounding here in Boise. && Boi watches/warnings/advisories... Idaho...none.
