Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pocatello Idaho 
217 am MDT Friday Apr 18 2014 


Short term...today through Monday. A cold front will be the 
highlight of the weather today. Plenty of winds and precipitation behind 
the front. Winds will peak late in the morning per guidance...but 
precipitation could linger through this afternoon shifting mainly over the 
southeast Highlands late this morning. Winds along the front in the 
early morning hours jumped into the 35 to 45 miles per hour range...but quickly 
subsided. Hrrr and local WRF keep wind speeds below 25 kts this 
morning...and do not anticipate any widespread impacts. Showers 
continuing through the afternoon will develop in moderately unstable 
air. With sufficient heating...there may be some isolated thunder 
this afternoon. Drier weather is expected through the rest of the 
weekend. Models drive the next shortwave into northern Idaho 
Saturday night...but should have little influence on weather in our 
forecast area. Hinsberger 


Long term...Monday through Friday night. Both GFS and European model (ecmwf) in 
agreement for much of the extended period. Upper ridging begins to 
move off to the east on Monday as a deep upper trough moves toward the West 
Coast. Only expecting isolated mountain thunderstorms on Monday...but precipitation chances 
increase substantially by Tuesday as the upper trough moves into the Pacific 
northwest. Temperatures will still be on the warm side on Tuesday...so isolated thunderstorms are 
expected with more widespread rain showers. Only the high elevations 
will see any snow. As the upper trough moves east of Idaho on Wednesday... 
precipitation will become somewhat less widespread. Temperatures will be much 
cooler. Beyond Wednesday the picture becomes less clear as the models 
begin to depart from each other. The European model (ecmwf) is more progressive...and 
puts an upper ridge over the northern rockies on Thursday. The GFS still 
has the forecast area under the influence of the upper trough to the east. 
Will scale back precipitation on Thursday as a compromise. Both models bring a 
new upper low to the Pacific northwest coast by Sat morning...with the European model (ecmwf) still 
faster. Will start a slow increase in precipitation chances Friday and Friday 
night. Hedges 
&& 


Aviation...a cold front passing through eastern Idaho this morning will 
bring rain showers followed by gusty westerly winds. Ceilings are 
expected to be predominantly VFR...but may fall briefly to MVFR 
with the showers. Conditions are expected to improve this afternoon.

Pih watches/warnings/advisories...none.
