NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
930 am PST sun Feb 1 2015 


Synopsis... 
a frontal system will bring light snow to much of the region on 
today. Another front is expected on Monday, and it should bring 
rain and mountain snow. More mild and wet weather disturbances 
are expected Thursday into the weekend. 


&& 


Discussion... 


..light snow today for northern Washington and Idaho Panhandle... 


Today and tonight: the first in a series of moist frontal systems 
will move through the Pacific northwest today. This initial shot 
of moisture today should produce light snow accumulations from the 
east slopes of the Cascades across the northern tier of counties 
in northern Washington into the Idaho Panhandle. Winter weather 
advisories have been posted from the Okanogan Highlands through 
northeast Washington into the Idaho Panhandle. 


* Snow levels: some of the tricky forecast areas for today will be 
over the Palouse, Spokane area, and southern Idaho Panhandle. 
The warm front driving today's precipitation does not appear to 
produce much wind near the surface. Without efficient boundary 
layer mixing, it will be a tough call whether temperatures in 
these aforementioned areas will be cold enough to produce 
accumulating snow. These areas will see precipitation primarily 
during the afternoon and evening. This "warm" time of day may 
inhibit accumulations during the afternoon, but as the sun sets 
pavement temperatures may cool enough that heavier snow bands 
may produce slick driving conditions. 


* Snow amounts: 1 to 3 inch accumulations look to be a good bet 
from the Methow Valley to northeast Washington into the Idaho 
Panhandle. There is good agreement between the NAM, GFS and 
European model (ecmwf) that deep layer westerly flow will produce the typical 
precipitation shadow for Wenatchee and Moses Lake areas. The 
westerlies should provide enough orographic enhancement that the 
mountains of the Idaho Panhandle above 3000 feet should receive 
3 to 6 inches of accumulation by Monday morning. 


* Timing: meteorologically today's snow looks to be pretty typical 
for this region. We see several 1 to 3 inch events most years. 
However, the timing of the snow for places like Spokane, couer 
d'alene, Sandpoint, and Kellogg may be problematic. The 
afternoon and evening timing of today's event will be coincident 
with a significant sporting event of particular regional 
interest. The festivities associated with said sporting event 
combined with potential for winter driving conditions will have 
the potential to produce more accidents than we would normally 
experience on a typical Sunday afternoon/evening. 


Monday: precipitation chances and amounts for Monday have been 
lowered a bit, and may need to be lowered further. There is 
reasonable model agreement that the bulk of precipitation on 
Monday will not arrive until afternoon and evening. Snow levels 
will be on the rise Monday. At this time, it looks like a mainly 
rain event for the valleys with snow for the mountains above 
3000-4000 feet. /Gkoch 


Monday night through Thursday night...the warm southwest to 
northeast trajectory of approach for storm systems continues with 
Monday evening remaining quite wet with fairly high snow levels. 
There is a subtle change with the exit of the storm as it moves 
into northwest Montana Tuesday as it appears a very weak cold 
front may drop down from the north and allow cooling and lowering 
of snow levels Tuesday. This complicates the storm track and is 
different than what models had depicted earlier. Now models hint 
at this cold front passage from the north pushes the storm track 
associated with the ridge in the area further south with more 
influence on Oregon now and less on northern Washington for late 
Tuesday, regardless by Tuesday night what appears to be a 
deformation zone of sorts in the vicinity of where the old cold 
front stalled remains an area of focus for precipitation as 
moisture streams in from the west/southwest through it. With this 
in mind high pops remain Wednesday as it remains in the area and 
behaves as a warm front at times as it gets pushed north Wednesday 
afternoon through Wednesday night. Thursday through Thursday night 
remains cluttered with similar high pops with yet another 
baroclinic band spiraling outward from large low pressure area in 
Gulf of Alaska that taps into subtropical moisture sweeps through 
Washington and north Idaho allowing for continued rather high snow 
levels and forecast temperatures to remain on the warm side of 
climo. /Pelatti 


Friday through Saturday night: mild and active pattern leads into 
the weekend as moist subtropical air comes into the region. Models 
are now in decent agreement showing a very moisture rich plume 
pushing into the region Friday with deep subtropical origins. An 
atmospheric river set-up looks promising which highly supports the 
notion of widespread precipitation Friday into Friday night. With 
precipitable water values surpassing an inch for some, 
precipitation amounts could end up being rather impressive for the 
24 hr period. The highest amounts will fall in the Cascades which 
could see upwards of 2 inches with up to 1.5 inches in the Idaho 
Panhandle. Snow levels surge to at least 6k feet by midday Friday 
supporting widespread rain with only the highest mountains seeing 
snow. Overall this is not great news in terms of trying to build a 
snowpack, which we have struggled with all winter. The one watch 
spot for impacts would be in the far northern valleys of the 
Cascades and along the international border which may hold onto 
enough cold air Friday morning to support a period of freezing 
rain before an eventual switch to rain by midday. Confidence in 
this is not high at this point and will greatly depend on how much 
they cool Thursday night. Increased confidence will likely come as 
we further approach the event. 


Precipitation chances diminish moving into Saturday as the rich 
moisture feed is no longer directed into the region. With a strong 
westerly component in the winds, the locations to dry out first 
would be in the east slopes and Lower Basin due to increased 
shadowing off the Cascades before eventually spreading further 
east. Better mixing behind the main moisture band will allow mid 
and upper level winds to more efficiently mix to the surface in 
turn bringing gusty winds. This will be most notable in the higher 
elevation locations (especially in the blue mtns and Camas 
prairie), but even the valleys will note an uptick in winds. 
Temperatures will be the other thing on the rise as mild southerly 
winds bring in warmer air. This will send daytime highs into the 
40s and 50s with overnight lows struggling to fall below freezing 
for most. Overall a wet and mild pattern for the end of the week. 
/Fliehman

Aviation... 
18z tafs: light snow will increase across northeast Washington and 
north Idaho through the afternoon. Look for runway accumulations 
of 1 to 2 inches in places like Spokane, Coeur D'Alene, Sandpoint, 
Colville, and Kellogg. Further south, Pullman will be a tough call 
with a potential change from snow to rain in the afternoon. Low 
stratus and fog will be a good possibility tonight as the 
precipitation moves out of the region. Not much Post frontal 
mixing is anticipated after the snow/rain ends. Weak upslope flow 
into Spokane and Coeur D'Alene will likely lead to ceilings at or 
below 1000 feet. Jw
