Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Pocatello ID
125 PM MST Mon Nov 28 2016

.SHORT TERM...Tonight through Friday. The upper trof in the
northwest flow was moving into southeast ID this aftn. Snow has
decreased over the Snake River Plain/eastern Magic Valley...so
the winter weather advisory was terminated. Strong southwest winds
are still expected thru the afternoon...so a wind advisory has
been issued for the Magic Valley and Snake River Plain mainly west
of Pocatello. Light snow is expected to continue in the southeast
highlands thru the aftn...diminishing this eve with a couple of
inches still possible. Winds overall will gradually diminish this
eve. As the upper flow becomes more northerly...temps will be
colder the next few days. Isold snow showers will continue near
the WY border thru Tue.

Another upper wave moves down the northwest flow on Wed...bringing
another round of light snow to the area thru Thursday. Only
looking for a couple of inches in the mtns with this system and
less in the valleys. Not seeing much wind either. Hedges

.LONG TERM...Thursday night through Monday.
Generally expect mainly dry weather early in the long term period
Friday through Saturday with only some mountain snow showers
expected.   After starting cold should warm up Saturday and Sunday
to above normal but both GFS and European models indicating another
cold frontal passage by Monday and turning colder again next week.
European quicker with the front but still high uncertainty on timing
that far out.
