Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Boise Idaho 835 PM MDT Monday Aug 31 2015 Discussion...weak zonal flow over the region will transition to a southwesterly flow before sunrise as the trough off the Pacific coast deepens and pushes further south. Skies will be mostly clear tonight under the influence of this dry pattern. Expecting winds to pick up Tuesday afternoon as upper level winds mix down to the surface. Forecast is on track...no updates. && Aviation...VFR across southeast Oregon and SW Idaho. Any smoke layers or reduction in visibility due to wildfire smoke will be in the vicinity of the kbke and kmyl terminals and points north and west. Light surface winds overnight will increase Tuesday afternoon across southeast Oregon. West-SW winds 15-25 kts aloft through Tuesday afternoon. && Previous discussion... short term...tonight through Wednesday...zonal flow will transition to a southwesterly flow aloft as an upper trough digs into the Pacific northwest. The southwest flow will direct a warm and dry air mass into the area on Tuesday. Highs will be above normal. Some of the southwest winds will mix down to the surface in the afternoon for gusty winds across southeast Oregon and the higher terrain of SW Idaho. A dry cold front will move through Tuesday night. Temperatures will be several degrees lower on Wednesday following the front. Another cold front will approach the area from the northwest...reaching Baker County by late afternoon. Moisture and instability along the front are both marginal...but enough to continue a slight chance of showers. Breezy southwest winds will develop again during the afternoon...shifting to the northwest in Baker County behind the front late in the afternoon. Long term...Wednesday night through Monday...models in fairly good agreement but differ on timing...placement and amount of precipitation. Axis of a long wave trough along the West Coast will begin to slowly shift east Wednesday night with the base of the trough continuing to dig south. This trough slowly opens up as it moves east with the axis of the trough over the forecast area by Saturday morning. Models indicated a cold front will move over the area late Wednesday night into Thursday but models differ on how far south precipitation will be. At this time looks like precipitation will be limited to Baker County Oregon and the west central mountains in Idaho. Front seems to stall over the area Thursday night and Friday with precipitation continuing over the west central mountains. As the axis of the trough moves over the region Friday night and Saturday precipitation will be pushed to the east but as the axis of the trough shifts to eastern Idaho Saturday night into Sunday could see increasing precipitation from the west. Confidence in location of precipitation over the forecast area is low but thinking is that any precipitation will be confined to northern zones Sunday through Monday. Temperatures will cool over the forecast area as the trough moves into the region. High temperatures on Thursday will cool 10-15 degrees from Wednesday/S highs. Temperatures will be the coolest Friday and Saturday with highs around 70 in the lowest valleys and highs in the mountains in the 60s. Temperatures will slowly warm Sunday and Monday with high temperatures a few degrees below normal by Monday. && Boi watches/warnings/advisories... Idaho...none.
