NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Boise Idaho 
839 PM MDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


Discussion...deep trough off the northwest coast this evening with lots of 
cold cumulus west of 130w. Trough will come in Saturday and Sunday with 
much cooler temperatures and widespread rain and mountain snow showers. 
Latest model timing has the surface cold front along a McCall/Idaho 
southwestward to Rome/or line at sunset Friday...with all the precipitation behind 
the front. Precipitation will enter western Idaho after 12z Saturday morning and 
cover all Idaho zones later Saturday. Strong cold advection will 
lower maximum temperatures about 20f Saturday compared to Friday. Snow 
level will lower to about 4200 feet mean sea level late Saturday night and 
Sunday morning...or lower than in previous forecast and low enough 
for snow to accumulate at pass levels. Significant west-east surface 
pressure gradient will develop gusty west winds in the snake basin 
Saturday and may require a Wind Advisory for the western Magic Valley... 
but so far guidance does not support winds that strong. Current 
forecast has a slight chance of thunderstorms in eastern-most Idaho zones 
Saturday but none of the models has negative lifted index. Still... 
given the speed of the front and thermal gradient across it...there 
should be pronounced lift at frontal passage and slight chance of thunderstorms 
looks like a good call. 


&& 


Aviation...VFR expected through the period with scattered-broken middle-high 
level clouds. Surface winds generally southeast around 10kts...with 
occasional gusts to around 20 kts in Magic Valley. Winds aloft at 
around 10k feet mean sea level...southwest at 25-35kts. 


&& 


Previous discussion... 
short term...tonight through Saturday...an upper level trough 
will shift close to the coast Friday and bring an upper low across 
the intermountain west Saturday. Tonight and Friday this will 
result in mild temperatures...areas of breezy southeast to SW winds and 
mostly cloudy conditions...along with showers over Oregon late 
Friday night and over southwest Idaho Saturday. Cooling of 2 to 5 
degrees mainly across Oregon Friday will be followed by 10-20 
degrees further cooling Saturday as the upper trough moves across 
the area. Low Li and a cold front will move across NE Oregon late 
Friday and low Li will continue across S central Idaho late Saturday 
for a threat of thunderstorms each day. Strong gusty winds are 
expected late Saturday from Ontario through Twin Falls. 


Long term...Saturday night through Tuesday...cool upper level 
trough will move through the region and snow levels will fall to 
around 5000 feet briefly as the precipitation comes to an end. Drier 
air will move into the region by Sunday ahead of weak ridging. 
Temperatures will gradually warm by Monday as the flow turns more 
zonal. 


Tuesday night through Thursday...a moist westerly flow will bring a 
chance of precipitation to the blue/W-central/Boise Mountains. This may 
come in the form of snow above 6000 feet on Tuesday night through 
early Wednesday morning. In the meantime...a ridge will build in 
from the south keeping the remainder of the County Warning Area dry and a hair 
warmer than our northern portions. Temperatures will be about 5 
degrees above normal.
