Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Spokane Washington 521 PM PDT Friday Mar 27 2015 Synopsis... a fast moving cold front will arrive tonight bringing widespread showers, gusty winds, and the potential for thunderstorms to southeast Washington and portions of the Idaho Panhandle. Saturday will be quite windy with gusts of 40 mph possible over Palouse, West Plains, and upper Columbia Basin. The weather Sunday and Monday should be mild and relatively dry. Another fast moving front on Tuesday will bring more showers and wind. && Discussion... tonight and Sat... Thunder and showers: we backed off the pcpn and thunder potential through late afternoon to early evening as it looks like much of the surface will remain capped. Showers and thunder will then rapidly develop and spread NE across much of ern and north Idaho as the cold front and upper trough (currently just offshore) moves inland. Convective mode: shear and thermodynamic profiles show the main threat will be very gusty winds, with any thunderstorm outflow augmenting the already strong synoptic-scale pressure gradient dry slot winds overnight. Severe gusts (gust to 58 mph) is a possibility, but not likely with the strongest embedded thunderstorms. Steering flow for these cells alone should be at least 30-35 kts with this embedded thunder. Small hail is possible. The challenge tonight will be how much thunder is generated across nrn WA late tonight as the vort Max (and associated cold pool and steep mid-level lapse rates) translate east rather quickly. If this was occurring during peak heating, thunder would be a certainty. Winds: we'll issue a Wind Advisory with the passage of the cold front this evening through midday Sat for especially the Palouse area as a significant mid-level dry slot surges across ern WA. Initially the heavy showers and thunder will help to mix stronger winds aloft (35-40 kts) to the sfc, then strengthening pressure gradients and cold advection overnight following fropa will help to Transfer 45-50kt winds aloft in a nearly unidirectional westerly vertical wind profile.Bz Saturday night through Friday...a Gulf of Alaska area of low pressure juxtaposed against a weak ridge of high pressure with axis placement generally to the east of northern Idaho allows for a persistent flux of moisture through an elongated baroclinic band located between the low and the ridge. The placement of the baroclinic band is far enough to the north through Monday so as to allow for a dry forecast for most locations with the exception of locations close to the British Columbia border and the north Cascade crest. Another cold front wipes out the ridge Monday night into Tuesday. As it does this is will spread precipitation from west to east and allow for windy conditions during and after its passage Tuesday. From about Tuesday night on through Thursday the jet stream straddles the forecast area along the southern border which allows for a conditionally unstable airmass and associated cold pool aloft to overhang eastern Washington and northern Idaho through most if not all of this interval which allows for a cool forecast with mainly diurnally driven showers and the possibility of some frost with more widespread temperatures just below freezing Wednesday night. By Friday the trof aloft exits to the east and leaves a more flat zonal flow with the jet stream in closer proximity which would suggest a further decrease in pops but perhaps a return of breezy conditions as the jet stream gets positioned closer overhead of eastern Washington and northern Idaho. /Pelatti && Aviation... 00z tafs: a vigorous cold front will sweep across the region overnight. The atmosphere will gradually destabilize through this evening with strong forcing along the front expected to break the cap holding down convection this afternoon. Best instability will be located from northeast or, southeast Washington and into the central Panhandle mtns. Confidence is high that thunderstorms will develop this evening along this axis and impact the klws taf site. Kpuw will also see a chance for thunderstorms this evening, but confidence is slightly lower. Moderate to heavy showers will then Blossom ahead of the front east of a line from kepi to komk. These showers may result in brief MVFR cigs/vis into the early morning hours on Saturday. Gusty westerly winds will also accompany the front overnight and continue into Saturday afternoon. /Svh && Preliminary point temps/pops...
