NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pocatello Idaho 
149 PM MDT Tuesday Jul 22 2014 


Discussion...east Idaho remains under influence of southwest flow 
today and tonight. Shortwave pushing northeast from California 
working with deep low off British Columbia Canada coast to maintain moist flow 
into western portions of state including central mountains. 
Already seeing broad cumulus field across central mountains along 
with cirrus shield extending southwest toward California feature. 
Radar picking up weak returns over pahsimeroi and Lemhi regions 
early this afternoon. NAM and GFS continue to produce scattered 
convective development within this zone though recent hrrr runs 
less favorable for convection across the region. Models maintain 
relatively thin band of activity overnight just along western edge 
of forecast area boundaries so will keep lower probability of precipitation through the 
central mountains overnight and into Wednesday morning. Elsewhere much 
drier flow in place with precipitable water values dropping significantly 
overnight through the snake plain and southern/eastern Highlands. 
Strengthening surface low ejects north into southern Idaho 
overnight with good southerly flow across the region helping to 
enhance drying. Flow turns southwest during the day Wednesday as 
northern low center reaches pacnw coast and dry punch extends 
across most of eastern Idaho. Have kept weak probability of precipitation across central 
mountains but confidence is low for precipitation chances with dry 
upstream flow on WV Sat imagery. Breezy conditions expected but 
marginal at this time for even lake wind concerns. Upper low 
ejects east along Canadian border through Thursday...pushing dry 
cold front through the region early in the day. Cooler but windier 
day on Thursday with some concerns for fire /see discussion 
below/. Guidance showing wide spread in wind values so will leave 
current grids just below advisory conditions at this time. 


Friday through Sunday Ridge rebounds through the intermountain 
west. Warmer temperatures and dry conditions will continue. Models still 
hinting at some hint of a return to monsoonal type flow by Monday. 
GFS and European model (ecmwf) differ slightly in amount of convection and spread 
Monday into Tuesday. Believe isolated probability of precipitation over higher elevations 
will suffice for now until clearer picture develops. Dmh 




&& 


Aviation...VFR conditions expected through the period at all taf 
sites. Thunderstorms are expected once again in the central 
mountains but will likely be north of ksun so kept in a mention of 
thunderstorms in the vicinity. Otherwise...windy conditions are expected to set up Wednesday 
afternoon and especially Thursday afternoon. 
Ep 




&& 


Fire weather...lingering thunderstorms can be expected today in the 
central mountains as an upper low begins to move inland in 
Washington state. The rest of the area will be under drier air 
moving in from the south. A drying trend is expected to begin for 
the entire area Wednesday as that upper low moves along the Canadian 
border...and last through at least Saturday. As the low moves past 
the area...a dry cold front will pass through southeast Idaho late Wednesday 
night into Thursday morning which will decrease relative humidity values and increase 
winds significantly in the afternoon. Currently have a Fire Weather 
Watch out for all critical zones for Thursday afternoon for the 
potential of a red flag day occurring as a result of low relative humidity and high 
winds.
