NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pocatello Idaho 
152 PM MDT Sat Jul 4 2015 


Discussion...the latest satellite imagery continued to show a high 
pressure ridge positioned over the 4-corners region extending northwest 
into southern Oregon while a low pressure system was positioned off the 
central California coast with sub-tropical moisture advancing north-northwest out 
of Mexico across Nevada and the Sierra mountains around the western periphery 
of the high into Oregon and SW Idaho. Further north...a low pressure 
system was rotating into north-central Canada while an embedded 
disturbance was noted digging rapidly south across British Columbia 
toward northern Idaho. The models remain in lock-step agreement again 
today with regards to the pattern evolution through Tuesday as 
pooling sub-tropical moisture over Nevada and Utah is drawn 
northeastward across southeast Idaho Sunday ahead of the advancing Canadian 
trough axis resulting in cooler temperatures and increasing 
thunderstorm activity Sunday/Sunday night. As the trough shifts east 
Monday and Tuesday...the ridge rebounds ever so slightly across the 
Great Basin with diurnally heating (albeit cooler than recent 
days) driving thunderstorm activity Monday and Tuesday afternoon. 


For Wednesday through Saturday...the models continue to struggle 
with the track and timing of the incoming California low...now 
waiting until Thursday (gfs) or Friday (ecmwf) to lift it NE across 
southern Idaho. Thus have begun to real in the precipitation potential 
for Wednesday and have maintained a chance/slight chance mention of 
precipitation throughout the remainder of the week. Huston

Aviation...wind is keeping light with no increase expected until 
early Sunday morning for the three Snake River Plain airdromes. This 
is due to an approaching front that will sweep through southern 
Idaho during the morning and early afternoon. -Shra and afternoon - 
thunderstorms and rain should develop along and in its wake on its southern end...so 
for kida and kpih this will be after the current valid time. Thus 
the only place affected until before 05/18z is kbyi. The high 
moisture so far looks like it will have a tough time making it into 
the ksun area...at least until after 18z. So except for some 
elevated wind during the night hours...little impact to aviation 
interests until after 05/18z. Messick 
&& 


Fire weather...a cold front will be moving through during the 
morning and early afternoon hours on sun. Wind will be light this 
afternoon and early evening...but expect an unusual increase in the 
wind during the overnight hours due to this approaching front. Also 
in an odd Twist...the best moisture will be areas down towards the 
Idaho-Utah border. This is where showers will develop 
first...including the eastern Magic Valley. By noon sun...showers 
and thunderstorms should develop all over the forecast area. The 
cold front will bring temperatures closer to normal for this time of 
year...and that will bring humidity up for at least sun and Monday. 
Afternoon showers and thunderstorms will return for Monday and Tuesday. 
Another cold front is expected Thursday afternoon into Friday night. This 
will increase the wind and bring back the higher threat for showers 
and thunderstorms. Messick

Pih watches/warnings/advisories...none.
