NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pocatello Idaho 
217 PM MST Thursday Feb 11 2016 


Short term...today through Sunday night. High pressure ridging 
over the area is gradually continuing to move east and weaken. 
Look for a very weak system to move through the high pressure 
ridging tonight bringing just a trace of snow over the upper snake 
Highlands. This system will also lessen the chances for fog 
particularly over our northern areas. Still look for a good chance 
of fog tonight into tomorrow morning for our southern areas... 
particularly Bear Lake and along I-15 and I-84 near the Utah 
border. A stronger system moves through the area on Saturday into 
Sunday breaking down the ridge and moving it east of our area. 
Look for moderate winds with gusts near 30 miles per hour on Saturday 
afternoon and gusts near 40 miles per hour on Sunday afternoon. Expect a 
trace to 1 inch of snow for the Snake River Plain. The eastern 
Magic Valley will likely see rain. The lower Snake River Plain 
will start out with snow early Sunday and turn to rain in the 
afternoon. Mountain areas will see 1 to 3 inches of snow. Upslope 
mountain areas for the Sawtooths and the eastern Highlands will 
see 3 to 5 inches of snow. Expect blowing and drifting snow over 
mountain passes particularly Galena Summit...Pine Creek Pass and 
Jackson Pass. A Special Weather Statement and weather story have 
been issued to show impacted areas. Expect lingering light snow 
for the upper snake Highlands in northwest flow Sunday night. 
Wyatt 


Long term...Monday through next Thursday night. A trailing 
disturbance embedded within broad northwest flow will mean a 
continuation of Highland snow shower activity on Monday. Winds will 
remain elevated as well Monday with southwesterly winds possibly 
gusting to 40 miles per hour at middle/upper slopes and across the southern snake 
plain. This may create some areas of blowing snow at pass level as 
well as some Crosswinds for those traveling. High pressure ridging 
then builds into the region in the Tuesday-Wednesday timeframe. This will mean 
an end to precipitation chances by Tuesday. We also anticipate warming 
temperatures...particularly at middle and upper slopes.Valley locations 
will likely reside beneath sharp inversions...similar to what we've 
been experiencing this week. Thus lowered temperatures a bit compared to 
guidance in valley locations. We may also see areas of low clouds 
and fog overnight and into the early morning hours Tuesday and Wednesday. 
For the late week storm system...guidance has now diverged a bit 
on the evolution of the approaching trough...lowering confidence in 
the timing of peak impacts. Nevertheless...expect an increase in 
precipitation chances and winds in the Thursday-Friday timeframe in 
association with this system. At this time...temperatures appear warm 
enough for rain along the Interstate corridor...although future 
refinements in the location of the rain/snow line are likely through 
the next couple of days. Ad/Wyatt 


&& 


Aviation...VFR conditions currently in place at all taf sites and 
anticipate this will persist through the period. Expect an increase 
in a VFR middle cloud deck this afternoon and evening as middle-high level 
moisture increases over the region. There is a low probability of 
fog and low stratus development...mainly at pih and Ida between 
roughly 02-15z however probability of this development is low enough 
to preclude mention in taf forecast at this time. Have included some 
areas of mist and/or haze but this is not expected to be an 
impactful obscuration to visible. Ad/Wyatt

Pih watches/warnings/advisories...
