NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pocatello Idaho 
347 am MST Sat Nov 22 2014 


Short term...today through Monday night. Precipiation has moved 
in across much of the area tonight. Southerly winds have kept 
temperatures above freezing for much of our southern areas below 
6000 feet bringing rain for these areas. This moist Pacific storm 
system is expected to bring 8 to 12 inches of snow with locally 
higher amounts over the central mountains and eastern Highlands 
along the Wyoming border. Winter weather warnings have been 
continued for these areas. Also the winter weather advisories have 
been continued for 4 to 10 inches of snow for the Lost 
River/Pahsimeroi Mountains and the southern Highlands above 6000 
feet. Expect moderate to strong winds today starting from the 
south before becoming westerly in the afternoon. A Wind Advisory 
for winds around 25 to 35 miles per hour with gusts of 40 to 50 miles per hour has been 
continued for the Snake River Plain...eastern Magic Valley and the 
southern Highlands and is valid from 8 am to 8 PM MST today. Very 
Little Valley snow is expected today below 6000 feet. 


This evening snow levels start to drop back to the valley floor. 
Late Sunday a moist trough moves through the area in northwest flow 
with the potential to bring 2 to 4 inches of mountain snow and 1 
to 2 inches of valley snow. Expect breezy to moderate winds for 
Sunday and Monday. Wyatt 


Long term...Tuesday through Saturday. Models still struggling with 
medium range. Dirty northwest flow keeps precipitation confined to higher 
elevations and progressively pushing north toward The Divide Tuesday/Tuesday 
night. GFS maintains deformation zone across The Divide Wednesday/Wednesday 
night...then sags feature into the rest of east Idaho and weakens it 
into Thanksgiving day. European model (ecmwf) holding on to the ridge instead...but 
both models depicting ridge in place Friday/Sat ahead of next Pacific 
feature late in the weekend. Interestingly...more of the GFS 
ensemble members favor the GFS solution. Held on to weak probability of precipitation 
through middle week then dried the region out into the weekend. Model 
guidance continues to remain on the warm side...so nudged temperatures 
above previous forecast levels while still remaining colder than 
current guidance. Dmh 




&& 


Aviation...precipitation beginning its March across east Idaho this 
morning. Snow already falling in central mountains and portions of 
eastern Highlands this morning. Consolidated precipitation shield working 
into the snake plain per radar/Sat imagery and expect to encompass 
most of the area by 12z with IFR conditions. Warming still in place 
at lower elevations particularly south half of region so expect rain 
at kbyi/kpih all day and a mix at kida at least through the morning 
with potential improvement to MVFR. Ksun does appear to remain all snow 
at this time. Surface gradient strengthens this afternoon coincident 
with cold front so will keep gusty winds roughly 20kts sustained at 
both kpih/kida. Main precipitation band shifts to southern/eastern 
Highlands this afternoon and should see drop off of precipitation in snake plain 
and central mountains by this time. Ceilings improve to MVFR/VFR. Winds 
subside during the evening as fast moving system shifts well 
east...and another weak batch of snowfall expected overnight in 
higher elevations. Ksun likely to drop back to MVFR with potential 
for IFR again after 06z. Dmh
