Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pocatello Idaho 
309 am MDT Thursday Apr 2 2015 


Short term...today through Saturday. Another storm will drop 
across eastern Idaho today...keeping showers going with the bulk 
of it occurring this afternoon and early evening. Once 
again...snow showers in the mountains and a mix in the lower 
valleys. With the air being so dry though...it may still be mostly 
snow showers with temperatures above 40. With heavier 
showers...graupel is certainly possible. Instability will be 
borderline today for thunderstorms...but don't be shocked if a 
rumble or two of thunder is heard. Just like yesterday...most 
precipitation amounts will be light but quick bursts of snow or 
graupel may indeed produce travel problems it will remain below 
average...with lowest valleys only flirting with 50. 


High pressure rebuilds briefly Friday...before shifting to east on 
Saturday and we return to southwest flow over the state. We will 
be back to above average temperatures by then with widespread 50s 
and 60s for the valleys. Southerly winds pick up as well...which 
may help push highs up a bit more in downslope areas. Showers will 
return Saturday morning across the central mountains...with a very 
slow push south and east to encompass portions of the upper snake 
Highlands by afternoon. Keyes 


Long term...Saturday night through Thursday. Confidence building 
for wet event Sunday into Sunday night with GFS and ec in relative 
agreement. Upper trough continues to sag into the pacnw states with 
moist difluent flow over east Idaho. Have nudged probability of precipitation upward for 
Sunday into Sunday night. Surface low over Wyoming not as favorable for 
strong winds and have lowered winds slightly in line with guidance 
trends. Models diverge headed into Monday and beyond as GFS and a 
few ensemble members continue to show stronger shortwave ejecting 
across the region while European model (ecmwf) not quite as amplified. Ec sags base 
of upper trough further south leading to stronger downstream ridging 
over Idaho Monday. Both models eject the trough through the 
intermountain west Tuesday night into Wednesday but with detail 
differences over the center of the low and placement of precipitation. Both 
models agree on ridge for Thursday as next strong Pacific trough 
develops off coast. Overall beyond Sunday...kept general blend going 
with both probability of precipitation and temperatures and will hope for better consensus for next 
week. Dmh 


&& 


Aviation...VFR conditions will continue through the morning. Weakly 
unstable airmass will allow light showers to develop most areas this 
afternoon with mixed precipitation despite relatively warm afternoon 
temperatures. Conditions drop to MVFR with the showers...which should end 
around sunset. Upper ridge tries to rebuild overnight so expect VFR 
conditions to remain in place for all terminals. Dmh

Pih watches/warnings/advisories... 
none.
