Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
214 PM PDT Monday may 25 2015 


Synopsis... 
a slow moving low pressure system will bring scattered afternoon 
and evening thunderstorms to the inland northwest through 
Wednesday. Locally heavy downpours, frequent lightning, and small 
hail will be possible the next several days. Low pressure will 
gradually depart by Thursday, bringing a decrease in precipitation 
chances, but chances may increase again by early next week across 
the region. Temperatures warm back above normal from Wednesday 
into the end of the week, with highs pushing into 80s Thursday 
Onward.

Discussion... 
tonight and tuesday: the inland nortwest will be under the gun for 
unsettled late Spring weather as an upper level low slowly 
meanders across the region. Anticipate showers and thunderstorms 
especially during the afternoon and evening hours. Temperatures 
will remain mild but not as warm as previously experienced, and it 
will be muggy with light winds. Currently the mid level frontal 
band will slowly depart from Idaho Panhandle into Montana by this 
evening. Then the track of the low center will help dictate the 
path and coverage of convection. Currently the low center is 
residing just north of the Cascades in British Columbia as a shortwave rotates 
southward and is helping ignite convection across the Okanogan 
Highlands and upper columbai basin. This activity will gradually 
spread eastward. The main concerns with the thunderstorms will be 
frequent lightning, heavy downpours, small hail and gusty winds. 
This activity will sweep eastward toward the northeast Washington, 
north Idaho and Spokane/Coeur D'Alene area early this evening and 
overnight as the low center takes this similar path. The low will 
gradually fill and remain parked over eastern Washington through 
much of the day on Tuesday. With pwats remaining near three 
quarters of an inch and circulation spinning over the region, 
anticiapte another round of thunderstorms rotating from east to 
west across the northern mountains. This will bring a renewed 
concern with heavy downpours as thunderstorms increase during the 
afternoon and evening hours on Tuesday. /Rfox. 


Tuesday night through monday: low pressure exits and temperatures 
begin to warm, but the threat of showers and thunderstorms 
continues. First between Tuesday night and Wednesday night low 
pressure migrates from the southeast Washington/or border to the 
Idaho/southwest Montana border. Without any real influx of drier air, 
pwats remain around 150% of normal (or 0.50 to 0.75 inches). In 
addition there are pockets of elevated instability (cape and high 
level total totals) during the night and early morning and 
expansion of SBCAPE in the afternoon. The north-northeast flow on 
the backside of the low and smaller scale impulses in that flow 
will work with the moisture and instability to bring the threat of 
showers and thunderstorms. These will be most numerous in the 
afternoon hours. However there are two limiting factors. First the 
large-scale pattern shows broader subsidence in the divergence-q fields, 
which may limit coverage away from the higher terrain. 
Additionally, models show there is modest cin across the deeper 
Columbia Basin to overcome during the afternoon. 


With the lack of significant sheer most storms are not expected 
to be well-organized and without a strong steering flow it the 
850-700mb layer, storms are expected to be relatively slow-moving. 
So the main concern will remain locally heavy downpours and if any 
cross a burn scar we will have to monitor for possible flash 
flooding or debris flows. Storms may also produce some small hail 
and gusty winds, and perhaps abundant lightning. 


From Thursday to Monday the region transitions from a northerly 
flow to west-southwest flow. Another low drops south across British Columbia and 
a deeper trough deepens off the Pacific coast. Impulses ride into 
the region in this evolving flow. The precise timing and track of 
these features is apt to change over the next several days. With 
instability expanding each afternoon there will be some threat of 
showers and thunderstorm each day, especially around the mountains 
through Friday and potentially expanding to a broader area going 
into early next week as models try to bring more a substantial 
trough in. This latter set-up will be monitored for possible 
organized/stronger thunderstorms for early next week, but it is 
too far out to have high confidence yet. /J. Cote'

Aviation... 
18z tafs: a mid level cold front will exit north Idaho by midday, 
allowing the band of showers with embedded thunderstorms to push 
east into Montana. The moist boundary layer and dewpoints in the 
mid 40s to lower 50s will aid in the redevelopment of convection 
behind the front. The best areas for convection will be across the 
northern mountains, but as the storms drift south-southeast, 
expect some activity reaching the taf sites this afternoon and 
early evening. Isolated to scattered showers will persist over 
much of the region through 18z Tuesday as the low center remains 
over the region. /Rfox
