NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Pocatello Idaho 
250 am MST Sat Dec 20 2014 


Short term...today through Monday night. 
Have issued a Winter Storm Warning from 5 PM through Sunday night 
for the central mountains above 6 thousand feet. Kept the Winter 
Storm Watch in effect for the same time period in the eastern 
Highlands. Very strong jet stream in the Pacific will drive in 
extensive moisture to southeast Idaho through the weekend and 
expect heavy snow to develop this afternoon and continue through 
Sunday. Snow levels which will start out at about 5 thousand feet 
today will gradually rise to above 7 thousand feet by Sunday 
afternoon. This should limit snow amounts below 6500 feet through 
the period...but all locations early tonight above 5 thousand feet 
should see some accumulation. Generally expecting 5 to 10 inches 
above 6 thousand feet and possible over a foot above 7 thousand 
feet through Sunday night. Strong westerly winds will likely 
accompany the storm during the day on Sunday especially over 
mountain passes where blowing and drifting are likely. Expect rain 
throughout the entire event in the Snake River Plain with strong 
gusty winds on Sunday and a Wind Advisory may be necessary. 
Precipitation should taper off Sunday night as a cold front moves 
through the region with mainly dry conditions Monday and Monday 
night. Temperatures will remain well above normal both today and 
Sunday with cooling expected Monday behind the front. 
Gk 


Long term...Tuesday through Saturday. Models still agree on general 
pattern but GFS/parallel GFS/European model (ecmwf) still all differ on details 
through the Holiday travel week. Ridge in place Tuesday for driest day 
of the week. Christmas system drops through pacnw across east Idaho 
Christmas evening/Christmas day. GFS slightly slower and remains further 
north with surface/700mb features. European model (ecmwf) fastest and furthest south with 
parallel GFS somewhere in the middle. Still quite a bit of 
uncertainty regarding timing of the cold front and precipitation. European model (ecmwf) and 
to some extent the parallel GFS favor snow reaching valley floors by 
Christmas morning. GFS holds on to warmer air with cold temperatures 
arriving during Christmas day. All models favor transitory ridge for 
Friday/Sat ahead of another system diving into the pacnw later in the 
weekend. Opted to maintain current forecast for Christmas Holiday which 
holds best chance for precipitation Christmas evening night...and at least a 
chance of snow to valley floors. Dmh 


&& 


Aviation...VFR/MVFR conditions in place most areas this morning. 
Very moist Pacific system pushing through pacnw as advertised today. 
Precipitation returns to central mountains by late morning then spreads across 
remainder of east Idaho this aftn/eve. Strong west/northwest flow 
aloft will focus precipitation in leading edges of central mountains and eastern 
Highlands. Warm temperatures keep snow levels high and heaviest precipitation 
arrives overnight. Ksun likely all snow with conditions remaining 
below field minimums once precipitation starts. Kida shifting from VFR/MVFR 
to rain/snow mix and IFR ceilings overnight. Kbyi/kpih both stay 
rain through tonight but may occasionally flirt with IFR ceilings 
during periods of heavier precipitation. Dmh
