Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Boise Idaho 
236 PM MDT Thursday Apr 17 2014 


Short term...cold front making steady eastward progress across Oregon 
and timed across our Oregon zones 3pm-7pm PDT and southwestern Idaho 7pm- 
midnight MDT. Frontal passage will bring isolated thunderstorms to southern zones 
and brief strong winds reaching advisory speeds...also in southern zones. 
We have trimmed the advisory to expire at 1 am MDT on the Idaho 
side. Front will bring widespread rain showers to northern zones...and 
scattered rain showers south of the snake basin. Showers will change 
to wet snow down to 5000-5500 feet mean sea level in northern zones before ending 
around sunrise. Clearing...drying...and cooler Friday as broad 
upper trough moves through...then warming again Saturday as next 
upper ridge comes in. Previous forecasts had Sunday the warmer day 
of the weekend...now it will be Saturday...as another cold front 
will bring cooling Sunday. 


Long term...Saturday night through Thursday...a cold front will 
swing through Saturday night accompanied by gusty winds. Moisture 
with the front is dry thus will maintain the dry forecast through 
Sunday. Temperatures will be 5-10 degrees cooler on Sunday. 
Temperatures will warm back into the 70s in the valleys on Monday. 
Southwest flow aloft develops ahead of a deep low pressure system in 
the Gulf of Alaska and an approaching cold front. The front will 
precede the low...with the front moving through Monday night 
followed by the upper low on Tuesday. Temperatures will be 10-20 
degrees cooler on Tuesday with highs only in the 50s. Showers will 
accompany the low pressure system on Tuesday with the greatest 
chances in the mountains. Below normal temperatures and a chance of 
showers will continue through Thursday as the low moves to our east 
and another system approaches the pacnw.

gusts to 40 knots behind it. Winds will diminish by 12z Friday. VFR 
with increasing clouds this aft-eve. Showers /most numerous in the
