550 am MST Wednesday Jan 28 2015 


Update...patchy...dense fog is already occurring across the

bringing slick freezing fog. Please use caution when driving.

Previous discussion... /issued 322 am MST Wednesday Jan 28 2015/ 


Short term...today through Friday night. Current radar imagery 
shows light rain and snow across our eastern areas. The snow 
level is currently around 6500 feet. Expect this level to drop 
particularly across our northern areas. The upper Snake River 
Plain will likely see a rain and snow mix early this morning. 
Otherwise...expect one to three inches of additional snow across 
the eastern Highlands this morning into early afternoon. A Special 
Weather Statement remains in effect until 11 am MST this morning. 
Have back off precipitation later this afternoon as both models 
are showing the system mostly through our eastern borders at that 
point. High pressure build backs in later today. With ample 
surface moisture and high pressure ridging...expect widespread fog 
Thursday morning in low lying areas. Models continue to keep the 
system Thursday night into Friday to our south. At this 
point...only a slight chance of precipitation is possible against 
the Utah border. Wyatt 


Long term...Saturday through Wednesday. 
Expect dry conditions Saturday with some systems working off the 
Pacific weakening the upper level ridge Sunday into early next 
week. Have a chance of some precipitation Sunday on in the extended 
with Monday looking like the wettest day of the long term period. 
Temperatures should stay well above normal into next week. 
Gk 


Aviation...extensive low level moisture remains in place today and 
expect IFR to MVFR ceilings to continue at taf sites through 
tonight. Rain may persist this morning at Ida and pih before ending 
this afternoon but expect low clouds to persist.
