NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pocatello Idaho 
226 am MDT Tuesday Oct 21 2014 


Discussion... 


A cold front is moving through the area early this morning. The 
front will move into Wyoming by late morning. The upper low is 
well behind the front over western Idaho. The upper low will move 
through the central mountains today. Most of the showers will 
remain over the central mountains although scattered showers will 
be possible elsewhere. There is some instability under the low as 
noted by a handful of cloud to ground lightning strikes during the 
overnight hours. Therefore will mention isolated thunder across 
the central mountains today. Snow levels will fall to around 7000 
feet and up to 3 inches of snow is possible along the peaks in the 
central mountains. Stanley could see a dusting of snow today. 
Expect to see some clearing this afternoon across portions of the 
snake plain as an aggressive dry slot works into the region. This 
will help to ramp up winds across the snake plain. Will continue 
the Wind Advisory for the Pocatello area where sustained winds of 
25 miles per hour with gusts to 40 miles per hour are possible. 


The low will move into eastern Montana tonight and showers should 
quickly diminish this evening. Expect mainly dry weather for 
Wednesday as a shortwave ridge slides through the region. 
GFS/NAM/ECMWF now showing the moist plume further south for 
Thursday into Friday. This will spread quite a bit more cloud 
cover over the region and will produce some isolated to scattered 
showers across the central mountains and upper snake Highlands for 
those days. Snow levels will be around 8500 feet and a couple 
inches of snow is possible at and above that elevation. 


Expect dry weather for Saturday as another shortwave ridge moves 
through the region. However a powerful cold front and upper level 
trough will arrive Saturday night and persist through Sunday. Snow 
levels will fall to around 6000 feet and expect convective snow 
showers across the mountains and Highlands with some isolated rain 
showers in the valleys and snake plain. Models have this system 
quickly clearing the region for Monday with another system 
possibly arriving for next Tuesday.
