METEOROLOGIST
JORDAN DRESSMAN – AFTERNOON DISCUSSION
Tuesday, January 16, 2018

Good afternoon Southern Idaho, and a very happy Tuesday. A positively tilted trough will push its way east this afternoon so I have a chance for a quick passing shower. There is some minor disagreement in the short-range models, but as far as timing is concerned, I would go for any time before 5:00 PM. Now if you have outdoor plans today, don’t let this rain chance ruin those as we’ll still see plenty of sunshine and temperatures will still warm into the 40s across the entire area.

Under normal circumstances, I would expect the aforementioned trough to have a bigger impact on our area, but the sub-tropical jet will make a surge northward winning the battle allowing slight ridging to hang out with us through Wednesday and a good chunk of Thursday. That being said, I am confident we’ll continue to warm-up with temperatures peaking on Thursday in the lower 50s across the valleys and mid-40s across the mountains. We will begin to see some changes Thursday as some rain moves in for the evening.

This comes ahead of a broad trough and cold front that will bring seasonable temperatures for Friday and the weekend. This cold front looks to push through early Friday morning bringing a change from rain to a little snow before the bulk of the precipitation moves east. The GFS and EURO agree, but the NAM 12km seems to be a bit behind in terms of precipitation bringing a good majority of the rain and snow through early Friday morning.

Saturday will remain dry, but I am not ruling out the chance of a passing mountain shower. After that our next sizeable system will come Sunday into Monday.
