Joe Nicholls and NOAA Forecast for Thursday, May 25, 2017

Joe Nicholls

An area of low pressure over the northern Rockies will push southward today and tomorrow, and the radar has shown a fairly significant increase in shower activity since midnight. Certainly unstable enough for a chance of a thunderstorm today, tomorrow and Saturday, then we should see a drier and more stable air mass Sunday through early next week. I hesitated taking the chance of an afternoon thunderstorm out altogether, as I could see an isolated development.

Joe Nicholls and NOAA Forecast for Wednesday, May 24, 2017

Joe Nicholls

Low pressure has moved into southern British Columbia and the Pacific Northwest, and will push a cold front across our area later tonight and tomorrow bringing showers and thunderstorms along with a much cooler air mass. The showers and thunderstorms are likely into Friday, then decrease early in the weekend, as the air mass stabilizes.

Today - Sunny, with a high near 70. Light and variable wind becoming west 10 to 15 mph in the…

Joe Nicholls and NOAA Forecast for Tuesday, May 23, 2017

Joe Nicholls

The system that brought the showers yesterday is now well east of us and we'll see lots of sunshine today, and again tomorrow with a much warmer air mass over the region tonight and tomorrow. Now, I put a very slight chance of a thunderstorm in the forecast later tomorrow afternoon and evening with a lifted index of -2 or -3, but certainly a better chance of showers and thunderstorms Thursday, then a scattering of activity Friday and Saturday.

Joe Nicholls and NOAA Forecast for Monday, May 22, 2017

Joe Nicholls

We had one system pass late yesterday and overnight, and it's a quiet morning! We have one more system that is moving southward into the area later this morning and afternoon bringing more clouds and a chance of a couple of showers. The air mass isn't as unstable as it was yesterday, but still enough for an isolated thunderstorm. High pressure and warmer thru Wednesday, then a couple of system Thursday through Saturday will bring more showers and thunderstorms, along with…

Joe Nicholls and NOAA Forecast for Friday, May 19, 2017

Joe Nicholls

Still considerable cloudiness moving across us today, but the more northeasterly winds has decreased the amount of precipitation. We'll see more breaks tonight and tomorrow morning, but more clouds tomorrow and Sunday with another system dropping southward across the area. This system isn't as cold, but with the lifted index of -3 we'll see some thunderstorms. I do see a couple of nice weather days next week where we see the sun and warm up a little, but at the end of the…

Joe Nicholls and NOAA Forecast for Thursday, May 18, 2017

Joe Nicholls

Welcome to winter in May! Definitely a strong low pressure moving across the area, and the surface pressure gradient is still from the northwest this morning and into early afternoon, so I expect more snow to fall today. The surface gradient and winds aloft are all from the north- northeast this afternoon, tonight and early tomorrow, so we should see less precipitation. We try to dry out on Saturday, but still a slight chance of an isolated shower. Another weaker system…

Joe Nicholls and NOAA Forecast for Tuesday, May 16, 2017

Joe Nicholls

The approaching cold front is right along the Utah - Colorado border and will reach us later this morning or early afternoon with a colder air mass right behind it. The cold, moist air mass remains tomorrow, and the biggest issue is the wind flow pattern with "most" models showing a more northerly flow and this isn't very favorable for precipitation. There are a couple of models that have a more northwest flow and this would be better for a more significant storm. I'll…

Joe Nicholls and NOAA Forecast for Monday, May 15, 2017

Joe Nicholls - A busy week, and looking pretty chilly with the Gulf of Alaska system moving into the area.

A couple of systems to impact us this week. The first is over the Great Basin, and the latest data is showing a -2 lifted index between 4 and 7 PM, so could see a couple of showers or thunderstorms and then dropping off. A similar scenario tomorrow, but the air mass is a tad more stable. By Wednesday, the second system moves into the area, and it's from the Gulf of Alaska and has…

Joe Nicholls and NOAA Forecast for Friday, May 12, 2017

Joe Nicholls

Low pressure has moved into the Pacific Northwest with the cold front expected to push into northern Utah this evening, then continue into the area this weekend, but kinda weakens. The lifted index is -3 tomorrow afternoon, so I do expect a chance of a thunderstorm or two. We cool off through next week with an increase in moisture later Tuesday and Wednesday, so definitely cooler with showers during the middle of next week.

Today - Sunny, with a high near 70. South…

Afternoon update: The radar is showing quite a bit shower activity to the west and southwest, but drifting away from us, and we should continue to see a decrease in the activity tonight and tomorrow. Low pressure is centered over southeastern Arizona with the circulation into the area bringing showers and a chance of a thunderstorm today. The northeast flow isn't great for precipitation, but in these showery patterns, we can still see some precipitation. A drier air mass…

Joe Nicholls and NOAA Forecast for Tuesday, May 9, 2017

Joe Nicholls

The low is well south in Arizona and moisture continues to circulate northward into the area today and tomorrow. The flow turns more northeast tonight and tomorrow, which is not great for precipitation, but still unstable enough for a chance of a thunderstorm. The air mass will dry out and stabilize for Thursday. Another system moves into the West Friday through the weekend, but I only see a chance at an isolated thunderstorm Friday and Saturday.

There is a Low…

Joe Nicholls and NOAA Forecast for Monday, May 8, 2017

Joe Nicholls

Low pressure is over Arizona and circulating moisture northward. This will continue to be the case through Wednesday, so fairly active with the lifted index in the -2 to -3 range, lending to increased activity each afternoon and evening through tomorrow night into Wednesday morning. The low pressure exits off to the east Thursday and Friday, but there will be enough moisture and instability for a slight chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon hours.

A low chance…

Higher pressure and warmer for a couple of days. We begin to see a little moisture increase later Saturday, and definitely on Sunday with the lifted index in the -2 to -3 range. A little bit of a decrease on Monday, but then Tuesday is looking fairly active. A fairly typical spring type of pattern.

Joe Nicholls and NOAA Forecast for Wednesday, May 3, 2017

Joe Nicholls

A little rain and cool yesterday, but we're drying the air mass out with higher pressure moving into the region. Spring fever will be in full force over the next couple of days! A little moisture will spread into the area over the weekend, as an area of low pressure moves into the West with an increasing southerly flow.

Joe Nicholls 

The satellite images show considerable cloudiness back into southern Idaho and northern Utah this morning with a scattering of showers, and by this afternoon, the air mass will be unstable enough for a chance of a thunderstorm. A drier air mass tomorrow and for the next couple of days, as high pressure moves into the area. By the weekend, we'll see the air mass get fairly unstable and enough moisture for a chance of a couple of showers and thunderstorms.
