NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
337 PM PST Wednesday Feb 10 2016 


Synopsis... 
high pressure weakens over the next couple of days, allowing for 
increasing precipitation chances. A warm front Thursday, followed 
by a cold front passage Friday, will produce light valley rain 
and High Mountain snow across much of the region. Unsettled 
weather will continue through the weekend into early next week 
with valley rain, High Mountain snow and breezy winds expected. 
Temperatures will be quite mild on Monday with many locations 
seeing highs in the mid 50s to low 60s. 


&& 


Discussion... 
tonight: a weak cold front will push across the region this 
evening and is already beginning to push east of the Cascades this 
afternoon. Radar did pick up on some light rain west of the 
Cascades earlier in the day. Lower levels are a bit drier on this 
side of the Cascades, so I do not expect the same kind of radar 
returns as moisture increases. Expect mainly very light precip or 
sprinkles/High Mountain flurries for the evening. Upslope flow 
into the Panhandle will keep a small chance for showers through 
the night. 


Thursday and Thursday night: a warm front will push in over the 
region behind the cold front passage tonight. This front will 
result in a resurgence of moisture into the region and will have 
access to a better moisture tap. In fact, this higher moisture 
content is noticeable on water vapor imagery with better 
enhancement out at around 36n and 136w in the eastern Pacific. 
Most areas will see light precipitation with the Cascades seeing 
the best chances in the afternoon and then shifting over to the 
Panhandle overnight. Snow levels will remain relatively high with 
mainly valley rain and High Mountain snow. The one exception to 
this will be possibly up the Methow Valley. The NAM model in 
particular shows a nearly isothermal profile right along the 0 
degree line from the surface up to around 5,000 ft mean sea level. Really 
tough to say if this will translate as snow or rain for places 
like Winthrop and Mazama. It will likely depend on how much these 
locations can warm up through the day on Thursday as the steadier 
precip likely will not get going until the afternoon hours. 


Temperatures will generally remain above normal. Nighttime 
temperatures will feel quite mild, especially Thursday night as 
warm air advection and cloud cover will yield lows in the mid to 
upper 30s for many locations. /Svh 


Friday through Wednesday...a wet, but warm pattern will set up 
over the region through this portion of the forecast. A cold 
front will move through the inland northwest Friday afternoon, 
resulting in a good chance for showers. Then the flow becomes 
westerly through the weekend and into next week with a series of 
weak frontal boundaries that will keep conditions unsettled. 


Friday and Saturday...model guidance is pretty similar showing 
a cold front moving into the Cascades around late morning, then 
moving slowly through the forecast area Friday afternoon/evening 
and should be well east of the area by early Saturday morning. 
Ahead of the front good isentropic lift and deep Pacific moisture 
will result in widespread stratiform precipitation. As the front 
moves through the area we expect drying from the west, with 
precipitation turning showery near the Cascade crest and for the 
Panhandle mountains. Snow levels start out between 5000-7000 feet, 
but will drop with the frontal passage down to 3000-4000. This 
will mean High Mountain snow and low elevation rain. Quantitative precipitation forecast totals 
through Saturday afternoon will range from around a tenth to a 
quarter of an inch for The Lowlands and a quarter to a half inch 
for the mountains, and locally a little more. Snow amounts for the 
higher elevations look to be 2-5 inches. Winds with and just 
behind the cold front Friday night and Saturday will increase out 
of the southwest 10-15 mph with gusts 20-25 mph. Temperatures will 
be in the upper 30s to upper 40s and on the warm side of normal. 


Sunday through Wednesday...the active weather will continue through 
the end of the forecast period. Rain and snow will be in the 
forecast just about every day. The exception may be Tuesday when 
another fast moving ridge moves through the region. But this will 
be short lived. After Sunday morning snow levels will remain high 
above 5000-5500 feet, so precipitation as low elevation rain and 
high mountains snow. Temperatures will climb into the 50s to low 
60s Monday and Tuesday, before cooling off on Wednesday. 


One thing we will be keeping an eye on will be breezy/gusty winds 
on Monday with southwest winds 15-20 mph and gusts 25-30 mph. The 
combination of the warm temperatures mentioned above, high dew 
points and breezy winds is a great pattern for rapid snow melt, 
especially at the lower and mid elevations. Snow melt will likely 
result in rises on small rivers and streams. Flooding is not 
expected at this time. However, run-off may fill up Road side 
ditches etc, and result in ponding and the potential for low water 
crossing in areas that have substantial low elevation snow. For 
example the Waterville Plateau, the Methow Valley, and some of the 
northern mountain valleys. This will be monitored through the 
weekend so stay tuned. Tobin

Aviation... 


00z tafs: a weak wave will cross the inland northwest this evening, 
while a more organized warm front lifts into overnight into 
Thursday. Mainly middle to high clouds pass early this evening, 
with a sprinkle threat near the eastern taf sites. Any clearing 
that may develop, along with a south to southeast flow in the 
boundary layer, will bring a threat of MVFR/IFR stratus toward mid 
to late evening or overnight. At the same time the middle to high 
clouds associated with the warm front will start to invade. If 
these are slower thicken there could be some IFR/LIFR fog. However 
confidence is low. As the warm front continues to lift in Thursday 
morning the threat of -ra/-shra will come in. The chances will 
arrive near eat/mwh first and toward the geg/sff toward midday or 
early afternoon. However the overall best threat of precipitation 
will remain near eat. /J. Cote'
