NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Boise Idaho 
841 PM MDT Monday Jul 28 2014 


Discussion...showers and storms continue across portions of the 
area...namely...over Boise and Elmore counties...Owyhee 
County...and Valley County. The strongest storms as of 830 PM MDT 
were in southeast Boise County moving southeast into Elmore County. An 
outflow boundary was moving along with the convection...helping to 
strengthen and initiate convection. Some portion of this outflow 
boundary will be headed toward Boise through 9 PM MDT. Gusts to 30 
miles per hour are anticipated. 


The convection will diminish with the setting sun and we expect 
almost all the activity will be gone by 11 PM MDT. This is handled 
well by the current forecast and no changes are planned at this 
time. 


&& 


Aviation...VFR...mostly cloudy middle and high level clouds. After 
18z Wednesday...isolated showers and thunderstorms will develop 
with locally gusty winds 30 to 40 miles per hour vicinity of thunderstorms. 
Surface winds less than 10 kts...after 16z westerly 10 kts. Winds 
aloft variable 5 to 10 kts up through 10k feet mean sea level. 


&& 


Previous discussion... 
short term...monsoon moisture is mainly at middle and high levels. 
Instability and shear have been weak so far and the air mass has 
been slow to generate thunderstorms. Instability will increase 
Tuesday /but shear will remain weak/ for a better chance of 
thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon...especially in the mountains. 
NAM in particular has increased instability with lifted index 
near minus 4 over about half our County Warning Area including southern Harney and 
Malheur counties...the Owyhee Mountains...Treasure valley...and 
the Boise Mountains. Our northwestern zones will have less moisture... 
while our southeastern zones may be too cloudy and not as unstable. Due 
to clouds...daytime temperatures will be a little cooler Tuesday and 
cooler again Wednesday. Nighttime temperatures will continue warm. 


Long term...Wednesday night through Monday...little change in the 
positive pna pattern is foreseen by the models...with the very warm 
upper level ridge anchored over western North America. Southwest 
Idaho and southeast Oregon will remain under southwest flow aloft 
.A favorable trajectory for advecting monsoon moisture over our 
area. Forecast soundings show favorable conditions for convection 
through the period...especially Sunday and Monday. Thunderstorms 
will be supported by surface heating...plus any shortwaves embedded 
in the southwest flow...although confidence in timing these 
disturbances is below average. As usual the best chance of 
thunderstorms will be afternoons and evenings over the higher 
terrain. Temperatures are expected to continue a few degrees above 
average for late July and early August.
