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- Monday. && 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. && Boi watches/warnings/advisories... Idaho...none. Or...none. && $$ Weather.Gov/Boise Short term...ep long term....dg/dd aviation.....Dg air stagnation...ep
