NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
435 am PDT Wednesday Apr 1 2015 


Synopsis... 
a cool and showery Spring weather pattern will continue through 
the week and into the weekend. Nighttime freezing temperatures 
will be common over the next 7 days with daytime temperatures in 
the 50s. 


&& 


Discussion... 
today and tonight: a trough of cold air is squarely over the pac 
northwest today. This creates a very unstable atmosphere with steep lapse 
rates. Surface afternoon heating is all we'll need to realize this 
instability into showers. The limiting factor will be moisture; 
there's not a lot of it. Surface dew points are generally in the 
20s. Showers will develop by midday and gradually die off after 
sunset. The northeast mountains and the central Panhandle will be 
favored in this pattern, with the lowest chance of showers in the 
Columbia Basin. The northwest flow means that showers that develop 
over the selkirks could move into the Spokane/cda Metro area in 
the late afternoon. 


The cold dry air means that some of the precipitation could be in 
the form of snow or graupel. This also isn't good for the 
thunderstorm potential, as lifted condensation levels (lcls) will 
have temperatures of -5c or colder, which is often too cold for 
much lightning. 


Freezing temperatures are expected in many areas tonight. Much of 
our area still hasn't started its growing season. But the Moses 
Lake area has, so a freeze warning will be issued for there. 
Lewiston and Wenatchee will likely be in the mid 30s tonight. 


Thursday and Thursday night: the cold air aloft moves to the east 
into Montana. As such, the atmosphere in the inland northwest will 
stablize somewhat. So shower activity should be less on Thursday. 
The favored location for showers will be in the Panhandle 
mountains. Rj 


Friday through Saturday night: a cold upper level low pressure 
system will dig off of the West Coast. Models are in good 
agreement that a shortwave swinging around this upper level low 
will push across a cold front around the Friday afternoon into 
Friday night time frame. The upper level dynamics with this system 
looks to weaken as it pushes further inland away from its parent 
upper low. This should translate into more of a weak to moderately 
strong cold front passage. Best forcing would be across the 
northern portion of the forecast area where precip chances will be 
highest. Precip type is expected to be in the form of valley rain 
and mountain snow showers. Snow levels will drop behind the front 
with diurnally driven rain/graupel showers possible for the 
afternoon on Saturday. 


..valley snow possible in the Panhandle Sunday night... 


Sunday through wednesday: the cold upper level trough of low 
pressure in the eastern Pacific will dig further down the coast 
through the weekend. A second shortwave disturbance will rotate 
around the upper trough and push across or, the Idaho Panhandle and 
into western Montana. There is general agreement amongst the mid range 
model guidance that this piece of energy will maintain its 
strength as it moves inland. The second piece of energy will be 
working with stronger jet dynamics that will help to fuel 
cyclogenesis at lower levels in the atmosphere. The track of the 
surface low and its intensity is still a matter of great 
uncertainty at this time. The European model (ecmwf) and Canadian solutions show 
more of a westerly track to the surface low across the Idaho 
Panhandle. This would lend to a better chance for drawing down 
colder air from the north with a deformation band developing 
across western Montana and across the Idaho Panhandle. If this solution 
verifies, then there is a chance for snow down to valley floors. 
A couple of inches of snow or more in the valleys would not be out 
of the question; however, there is too much uncertainty amongst 
the model guidance to put much confidence in this scenario, but it 
will be a situation Worth monitoring as the weekend approaches. 


The upper level low in the eastern Pacific is progged to open up 
and push into the western U.S. For early next week with the 
weather over the inland northwest remaining unsettled. Showers 
are more likely to be diurnal in nature. Temperatures are 
expected to be below normal through the weekend into early next 
week. /Svh 


&& 


Aviation... 
12z tafs: numerous showers and a few thunderstorms will form over 
the mountains this afternoon. A few showers will also form over 
the basin. These showers will be brief and will contain light rain 
or graupel and possible gusty winds. This shower activity will die 
off quickly after sunset. Rj
