Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED
National Weather Service Pocatello ID
846 AM MDT Mon Oct 23 2017

.UPDATE...We`re updating the forecast to better reflect cloud
cover, especially where stratus formed in the wake of thinning
high clouds. We also included some dense fog in similar areas as
there is a mix of both going on this morning. The rest of today`s
forecast seems to be in good shape. Keyes


.PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 204 AM MDT Mon Oct 23 2017/

DISCUSSION...Amplifying upper ridge will keep conditions dry over
the next couple days. Sat imagery shows a patch of high clouds in
the northwesterly upper flow. Models keep a dry forecast going
through much of the period. Some adjustments made to the forecast
Thursday as models are coming in a bit drier than previous runs.
ECMWF bring a bit more moisture to southeast Idaho as this system
passes than the GFS. Temperatures are also trending warmer than
previous runs for the latter half of the week and into the
weekend. Hinsberger

AVIATION...There`s a threat of low stratus over portions of the
region this morning. If it should develop, we expect it to lift by
midday. Otherwise, expect vfr conditions along with lighter winds
because of high pressure over the area.


FIRE WEATHER...High pressure will produce dry weather and light
winds through Wednesday. A cold front will arrive Wednesday night
and Thursday producing the next threat for showers.
