NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pocatello Idaho 
335 am MDT Monday Aug 3 2015 


Discussion...look for scattered to numerous showers and 
thunderstorms today as an upper level low with associated sub- 
tropical moisture moves into southeast Idaho. Models continue to 
indicate a 10 to 15 degree drop in temperatures from Sunday across 
the area today. Models are showing the majority of the 
precipitation moving in from our south northward along the eastern 
Highlands where .25 to .5 inch of rain is expected. Look for a 
decrease in precipitation Tuesday where just isolated showers and 
thunderstorms are expected. A stronger disturbance moves through 
the area on Wednesday bringing a better chance of showers and 
thunderstorms. Expect a drier trend Thursday into early Friday. 
Models continue to show another system approaching from the 
southwest Friday into Saturday bringing back good precipitation 
chances. Weak high pressure ridging builds in late Sunday bringing 
a drier trend Sunday afternoon through Monday afternoon. Wyatt

Aviation...low pressure with unstable moist air will move in this 
morning...triggering a rain showers/thunderstorms and rain risk at all airdromes. This should 
continue through the evening hours...then clear from west to east. 
Northerly or light and variable wind this morning will shift to a 
westerly component for the afternoon and early evening. Outside of 
thunderstorms and rain hazards...no significant impacts to ceilings or visibilities expected. 
Messick 


&& 


Fire weather...an air mass change will end the hot and dry 
temperatures with thunderstorms and higher humidity/lower 
temperatures. Red flag will continue for the selected elevations in 
the Idaho-Utah border region where fuels have reached critical 
dryness. More showers and thunderstorms are expected at least each 
afternoon and evening from Tuesday through Thursday...as a low in the eastern 
Pacific ejects some shortwave impulses into the westerly flow that 
sets up after this main storm. There still appears to be a break on 
Friday...then more showers and thunderstorms for the weekend. Messick
