Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Air Quality Alert  Statement as of 10:57 am PDT on August 30, 2015


... Air quality alert in effect until further notice...

An air quality alert has been issued by the following agencies:

Washington department of ecology in Spokane
Idaho department of environmental quality in Lewiston
Washington department of ecology in Yakima
Idaho department of environmental quality in Coeur D'Alene
Nez Perce tribe
Colville confederated tribes
Spokane tribe
kalispel Indian community
Coeur D'Alene tribe
Spokane regional clean air agency
Kootenai tribe of Idaho

Air quality across the region has improved with the wind and rain
from weather systems this weekend. Wildfires continue to burn
across the region and may produce enough smoke for air quality to
diminish into the moderate to unhealthy category at times through
Monday morning. A coordination call with air quality agencies will
be conducted Monday morning to determine what areas, if any, can
be removed from the air quality alert for next week.

Precautions to be taken for areas experiencing increased smoke and
reduced air quality include:

*everyone should avoid heavy work or exercise outdoors when the
air quality index reaches unhealthy levels.

*Older adults, small children, and those with respiratory
conditions or heart disease may be more sensitive to poor air
quality and should stay indoors and avoid heavy work when air
quality reaches unhealthy levels.

*Drink plenty of water. Staying hydrated helps dilute phlegm in
the respiratory tract, making it easier to cough out smoke
particles. Plan on coughing; it is nature's way of clearing your
lungs. Avoid caffeine products, sugary drinks and alcohol because
they have dehydrating effects.

*Stay cool when the weather is warm. Run your air conditioner to
recirculate air. Turn The Fan blower on manually so it
continuously filters the air in your home.

*If working outside, use a dust mask... n95 or n100. If a dusk mask
is not available, cover your nose and mouth with a damp
handkerchief.

This air quality alert will be reevaluated by Monday at noon.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
438 PM PDT sun Aug 30 2015 


Synopsis... 
showers, thunderstorms and breezy winds will diminish through the 
evening hours as a vigorous upper level weather system exits the 
region. A cool, occasionally breezy and showery weather pattern is 
expected much of next week. 


&& 


Discussion... 


Tonight: isolated to scattered showers will continue into the 
early evening as the upper level trough of low pressure crosses 
the region. Much of this shower activity will be located across 
the eastern half of the forecast area. Isolated thunderstorms will 
also be possible through the early evening. I don't think we will 
be able to generate enough instability for thunderstorms to be a 
big threat. Strongest storms are expected to be across the 
northern mountains with small hail, heavy downpours and gusty 
winds to 40 mph possible. 


Monday through tuesday: another shortwave trough will swing by the 
region on Monday and Monday night. This system will mostly be a 
glancing blow across the northern zones. The best dynamics will 
remain well up into British Columbia. A weak warm front will swing through on 
Monday. This will increase mid and high level cloud cover. The 
cold front will then swing in Monday night. Neither front shows 
much lift and only some light showers will be possible. Best 
chances for precip will be across the northern mtns. Temperatures 
will see a slight warming trend, but will still remain near to or 
slightly below normal. /Svh 


Tuesday night through Sunday. A broad upper-level trough will 
remain anchored over the Pacific northwest during this time- 
frame. Confidence is near to above normal that cooler temperatures 
will be here to stay with afternoon highs in the 60s to 70s. 
Overnight lows will largely be in the 40s to 50s with pockets of 
30s in the northern valleys and on the highest peaks. 
Precipitation chances will be centered around the timing and track 
of embedded shortwaves pivoting within the mean trough. Models 
suggest the first of these waves swings through the region Tuesday 
night into Wednesday. Precipitation amounts do not look terribly 
impressive but at this point, anything will help. There is lower 
confidence regarding the track and time of the next slug of energy 
so will trend pops toward climatology which mainly mentions a 
chance of showers in the mountains. With the cooler trough aloft, 
afternoon instability may be sufficient in generating light 
showers each afternoon. As for thunder, the main threat looks to 
be in the higher terrain near the international border Wednesday 
afternoon and early evening. As for winds...breezy conditions are 
possible each afternoon but the main periods we will emphasis 
given the wildfires in the region will be Wednesday and Friday. A 
cold front on Wednesday will bring a moderate push of winds with a 
majority of the basin looking at sustained winds from 15 to 25 and 
gusts toward 35 mph. Similar winds could be experienced on ridge 
tops. These winds will be from the southwest. On Friday, a cold 
front drops in from the north bringing a northerly push of winds 
through the region. The narrow and north-S oriented valleys of 
Okanogan Valley and Purcell Trench will receive the brunt of this 
wind but northerly winds can be anticipated region-wide. Speeds 
have been increased between 10-15 mph with this forecast package 
and may need to come up further. Stay tuned. /Sb 


&& 


Aviation... 
00z tafs: scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms will 
affect extreme northeast Washington and the northern Panhandle of Idaho 
behind a cold front moving into western Montana. Breezy west to 
southwest winds will diminish after 03z. Low level moisture from 
recent rainfall and light upslope flow may allow MVFR ceilings in 
low stratus to form between around 10z to 16z...affecting 
kgeg/ksff/kcoe. Kpuw could also see MVFR conditions but 
confidence is low. /Ek
