NWS Forecaster Discussion

Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Boise Idaho 
258 PM MST Monday Nov 30 2015 

Short term...tonight through Wednesday...upper level ridge will 
continue to dominate the weather through the short term. Stagnant 
inversion conditions with patchy fog and widespread low stratus 
will continue in the valleys...while mountain areas should see 
clear skies with near normal temperatures. A shortwave embedded 
in the offshore flow is expected to skirt the area tonight with 
just thin high clouds. However...on Tuesday night into 
Wednesday...another stronger shortwave looks likely to move NE 
across the northwest most portions of the County Warning Area. Most of the energy and 
moisture will go to our north...but the surface pressure gradient 
is expected to tighten up. With a surface high just to our 
east...east-southeast winds should pick up...mainly in the Magic 
Valley...late Tuesday night into Wednesday. Currently...confidence 
is high that the Magic Valley will see some relief from the 
inversion conditions...but just how far down the valley the winds 
penetrate the deep inversion is of lower confidence. Temperatures 
have been well below normal with little diurnal fluctuation...and 
that is expected to continue in low stratus areas...but other 
areas should remain near normal. 

Long term...Wednesday night through Monday...southwest flow aloft 
will introduce a chance of precipitation to southeast Oregon and the west-central Idaho 
mountains for Wednesday night and Thursday. Better chance for precipitation comes 
Thursday night and Friday as an upper trough tracks through the Pacific 
northwest. The main energy will pass north of the area as the upper trough 
begins to split. Both the GFS and ecm are in agreement on the 
evolution of the trough split...though there remain some timing 
differences. In both models precipitation amounts are light through Friday. 
Will see enough cooling aloft to break the inversion by Friday and 
warm up valley temperatures to around normal. While the 12z GFS has trended 
toward a wetter westerly flow for late in the weekend...have stayed 
closer to the dry European model (ecmwf) solution which keeps the upper ridge in place 
over the western U.S. Thus kept probability of precipitation at or below climatology for Sat- 


Aviation...low MVFR and local IFR conditions in low stratus and fog 
across east-central Oregon and SW Idaho will hold in place into 
Wednesday. Will see isolated breaks in the clouds for areas from 
kmuo to kbke but breaks that develop will be brief. East of kmuo the 
low stratus will erode during the day and redevelop overnight. 
Otherwise VFR under mostly clear skies across higher elevations of southeast 
Oregon and SW Idaho. Surface winds will stay at 10 kts or less while 
winds aloft are northerly at 10-15 kts up through 10k feet mean sea level. 


Air stagnation...high pressure will allow the existing strong 
valley inversions to continue through at least Wednesday. Winds 
expected to increase in the Magic Valley Tuesday night into 
Wednesday...which may ease the inversion there. 
Elsewhere...confidence remains low that any relief is in sight 
for the long and Treasure valleys until Friday.
