METEOROLOGIST NICHOLAS SNIDER – EVENING UPDATE

Tuesday, October 19, 2021

A fairly calm pattern it set to move into the region as we go throughout much of the middle of this week. A small disturbance will try to work its way through the area tomorrow, but it won’t do much, only stirring up some clouds in the southern portions of the viewing area. Further north, a stray shower may be possible over the Wood Rover Valley in the evening. High pressure builds in once again for Thursday, allowing temperatures to warm up, and skies to slightly clear (although some lingering moisture will keep clouds around Thursday afternoon. The Pattern gets more interesting beginning Friday. A potent dip in the jet stream will stir up an area of low pressure that will make its way into the forecast area by sunset on Friday. Behind the front, rain will be stirred up (mainly Friday night into Saturday morning. Clouds hang on throughout the day Saturday, as more forcing for rain showers should come through Saturday night into Sunday, ahead of a warm front. Another very potent dip in the jet stream will then be set to make its way through the viewing area for Monday not Tuesday. This should bring widespread snow chances to the Wood River Valley, and widespread rain chances elsewhere (with South Hills snow as well).
