NWS Forecaster Discussion

Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pocatello Idaho 
906 PM MST Tuesday Dec 1 2015 


Updated forecast to lower min temperatures. Temperatures fell quickly this 
evening because of light winds...clear skies and snow cover. 
Clouds associated with next system a little slower to arrive than 



Previous discussion... /issued 131 PM MST Tuesday Dec 1 2015/ 

Short term...tonight through Thursday night. Upper ridging over 
the west today is expected to hold through Wednesday night. A minor wave 
moving over the ridge may bring spotty light snow to the central 
mountains and upper snake Highlands on Wednesday. The upper ridge moves off 
to the east as a deeper upper trough moves into the West Coast. This 
system is expected to spread light snow into the central mountains Thursday 
and Thursday night. Temperatures are expected to warm up through Thursday. 
Relatively clear skies and light winds may result in patchy 
freezing fog in the valleys tonight. Hedges 

Long term...Friday through next Tuesday. Broad upper trough 
expected to progress into our area Friday and linger into late 
Saturday while digging southwards into the southwest US and 
potentially becoming a cut-off low over the Midwest. Isolated to 
scattered snow showers are in the forecast for this period and most 
likely at higher elevations with only light accumulations on valley 
floors this event. High pressure then quickly builds over the latter 
half of the weekend before the potential for isolated light snow 
showers begin again by late Sunday. The weather pattern is then set 
up to be disrupted with a series of upper level disturbances passing 
eastward...which creates a difficult forecast to time when snow when 
will occur next week. Right now best chances look to occur on 
Tuesday favoring a model blend solution. Peterson 

Aviation...continued influence of upper ridging will make 
ceiling/visibility forecasts a bit tricky tonight. Even as of taf 
issuance...kpih had a ceiling of 400 feet and visibility less than 3 
sm. Kbyi was reporting MVFR visibility. Sites should see improvement 
this afternoon. Potential exists for fzfg to redevelop tonight...but 
may dissipate by middle to late morning as middle-high cloud deck advances 
ahead of the next weather system. Hinsberger
