Short Range Forecast Discussion - Updated for Wednesday, May 27, 2015
Low pressure sits across Idaho/ Montana today, with lingering moisture, very isolated showers this morning, and mostly isolated thunderstorms and showers this afternoon, otherwise we expect warmer temperatures. Thursday and Friday we expect an approaching low pressure system out of the northwest to kicking up some increased thunderstorm and shower activity, for scattered+ showers and thunderstorms moving in, plus some accumulating snow on the upper mountain areas. Saturday and Sunday we now expect a warming and drying trend as high pressure ridging aloft builds in pretty strong across the central Rocky Mountains. More low pressure approaches from the northwest US next Monday through Wednesday, for another increase in mainly afternoon thunderstorms and showers again, with temperatures dropping a bit, as low pressure across the northwest US directs a more southwest and moist wind flow aloft across the area.

Long Range Forecast Discussion:

7 day to 2 week+ forecast (since 1998) - We plan to bring this back in the fall, unless we receive interest in firing the longer range forecast back up, sooner.

It looks like a strong El Nino may be in effect this fall and winter. This would usually cause heavier rain and snow across California and the southwest US. We will be monitoring the progress of this right here, stay tuned... CM
