NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pocatello Idaho 
315 am MDT Sat may 30 2015 


Short term...Saturday through Monday. 
A weak upper level system will move over the upper level ridge in 
Idaho and bring showers and thunderstorms today mainly to the 
central mountains and southern and eastern Highlands. Expect 
isolated activity in the Snake River Plain. Temperatures will 
continue to moderate with low 80s expected in snake plain and 70s 
in the mountains. Sunday should see continued warming with 
southerly flow aloft increasing. Highs will be in the 70s in the 
mountains to middle to upper 80s in the Snake River Plain. Expect 
showers and thunderstorms to be confined mainly to the mountains 
on Sunday. First upper level trough begins to move to the north of 
Idaho on Monday and the southerly flow will keep the threat of 
showers and thunderstorms going Monday. Temperatures will begin to 
cool down as well. 
Gk 


Long term...Tuesday through Saturday. 
A second trough approaches Idaho late next week Thursday through 
Saturday. European M model closes off a low in Nevada by Saturday 
while GFS is more open and progressive with the trough. GFS is the 
much drier solution with most energy to north while the European 
is much wetter. For now just kept in the showers and thunderstorms 
already in grids next week as model uncertainty and differences 
are leading ME to not make too many changes. Temperatures should 
be near seasonal normal through the period.

Aviation...a Flat Ridge was positioned over the region early this 
morning as a Pacific disturbance was shearing east into/through the 
Panhandle. The models support scattered showers near ksmn this 
morning with thunderstorms breaking out north of a line from Ketchum 
to Spencer this afternoon. Further South...Strong surface heating 
will promote convection however there seems to be some disagreement 
between the NAM and GFS over the extent of available low level 
moisture to fuel thunderstorm development. Hard to say at this point 
which model has the better handle on depth of boundary layer 
moisture so we will add a mention of thunderstorms in the vicinity to kbyi...kpih and kida to 
cover the potential for buildups from 21-03z today. Huston 
&& 


Fire weather...a broad/Flat Ridge of high pressure was positioned 
over the western states early this morning as the next upstream Pacific low 
was advancing toward the California coast. A disturbance ejecting 
from the Pacific low will top the ridge over northern Idaho today resulting 
in scattered showers and afternoon thunderstorms focused primarily 
across the central mountains north of Hailey and east to the Montana 
border. There may be enough moisture and instability across the 
southern Highlands to support isolated buildups in that region late 
this afternoon/eve. The ridge amplifies over the Great Basin Sunday 
as the Pacific low reaches the northern California coast resulting in 
scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms focused over SW 
Montana and to a lesser extent the border regions of the central and 
NE mountains. The low lifts into Washington and Oregon Sunday 
night/Monday resulting in some fairly decent dynamical forcing 
across SW Idaho into the central mountains...Idaho Panhandle and western 
Montana Monday afternoon...possibly impacting The Sawtooth and 
Salmon-Challis region with enhanced or potentially severe 
thunderstorm activity. A broad trough lingers over the region 
Tuesday through Friday supporting a chance mention of showers and 
afternoon thunderstorms continuing into the latter half of the week.
