128 PM MDT Friday Oct 24 2014 


Short term...tonight through Monday. 


Plume of moisture continue to move north away from the region. 
Expect clearing skies tonight with high pressure settling in over 
the area. Dry weather will persist into Saturday. However the next 
storm system will arrive Saturday night and persist through 
Sunday. Expect showers to break out initially in the central 
mountains around Stanley on Saturday night. On Sunday showers will 
be more likely across the mountains and Highlands. Could be enough 
instability around on Sunday that a few thunderstorms is possible. 
Temperatures will be about 20 degrees colder on Sunday and snow 
levels will fall significantly on Sunday to around 6500 feet. 
Expect gusty winds on Sunday as well...expect winds to remain just 
below advisory levels at this time. Locations above 6500 feet 
could see up to 3 inches of snow. Precipitation should diminish 
quickly Sunday night as the system moves off into the northern 
plains. A few residual snow showers is possible on Monday across 
the eastern Highlands...but no significant accumulation. 


Valle 


Long term...Tuesday night through next Friday night. After nearly a week 
of sometimes total disagreement between guidance suites...the GFS 
and European model (ecmwf) have likely never looked more similar in the autumn than 
the current model runs. Very strong agreement the the next major 
trough arrives Tuesday night and lasts through Wednesday night. This is the 
biggest storm of the week...but not the coldest with snow levels 
staying somewhat elevated with little risk of snow in heavily 
populated elevations. The trough will be bringing leftover tropical 
airmass from Tropical Storm Ana...keeping temperatures mild in spite 
of the cloud cover. This storm will be breezy to windy...but not 
expecting any serious wind event at this time. There is also 
excellent agreement on a ridge developing by Thursday that strengthens 
through the end of the period so temperatures will be well above 
normal...and the high pressure keeping winds light. Messick 


&& 


Aviation...high pressure over southern Idaho will last for the next 
24 hours. Unlimited ceilings and visibilities with light wind at all airdromes. 
Messick

Pih watches/warnings/advisories... 
none.
