NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
453 PM PDT sun Aug 2 2015 


Synopsis.... 
the ongoing drought combined with high heat and low humidity will 
contribute to high fire danger throughout the inland northwest. 
Temperatures on Monday should be a few degrees cooler with an 
increase in clouds. Cooler temperatures and locally breezy winds 
are expected mainly Monday through Wednesday following the arrival 
of a cold front. Another threat of showers and thunderstorms 
arrives next weekend. 


&& 


Discussion... 


Tonight and Mon: we've continued with the trend of increasing 
clouds with only a slight chance of thunder for the east slopes of 
the Cascades and the rest of the mtn zones through Mon. The best 
chance will be Mon afternoon and evening as the short- wave trough 
now over nrn calif and srn Oregon lifts northeast across the 
region. We're not looking for much in the way of pcpn given the 
very dry sub- cloud layer below 700-600mb as well as a lack of 
notable sfc-based or elevated instability. However, there still 
may be sufficient instability to produce a few drops of rain for 
most of ern WA and north Idaho late Monday. Expect winds to increase 
substantially by Mon evening as this wave passes and pressure 
gradients strengthen.Bz 


Monday night through wednesday: models are in good agreement of 
the wave exiting north Idaho early Tuesday morning. The models seem 
to be speeding up the time of it leaving. We do keep a chance of 
showers and thunderstorms overnight Monday night into Tuesday for 
the northeast corner of Washington and the northern Idaho Panhandle. Then 
through the day on Tuesday the best chance of showers and 
thunderstorms will reside along the US/Canadian border. The closed 
low in central British Columbia will swing a wave into the area 
Tuesday and another one on Wednesday. Both times the best chance 
of showers and thunderstorms will reside along the border. Took 
out chance of precipitation across the Blue Mountains and Camas 
Prairie, as it looks like best potential remains further north. Am 
not as excited about thunder potential, models are not showing a 
lot of instability. The main concern Tuesday and Wednesday will be 
winds. Each afternoon westerly winds will increase with winds 
peaking the late afternoon and early evening hours. Even though 
our temperatures will finally approach near average values on 
Tuesday and maybe actually below average values by Wednesday...it 
will still be very very dry. The breezy winds combined with low 
daytime relative humidity values will create fire weather concerns 
each day. Have issued a Fire Weather Watch for Tuesday with the 
possibility of needing one for Wednesday as well for the Kittitas 
Valley. Winds will actually be more widespread than just in the 
Kittitas, but for now it looks like this area will have the best 
chance of reaching red flag conditions. Breezy winds are also 
expected across the Wenatchee valley...Waterville Plateau and into 
the Columbia Basin/Palouse and Spokane areas. /Nisbet 


Wednesday night through sunday: models continue to suffer from 
some consistency issues, but a general trend suggests the inland 
northwest will be in a progressive pattern with shower chances early this 
period and again toward the weekend. Temperatures are forecast to 
be near to slightly below average at the periods start, warm up 
into Saturday and cool down toward next Sunday again. 


So first Wednesday night into Thursday an upper trough will 
continue to exit. The threat of showers will linger near the 
Cascades and Canadian border, but the better lift and instability 
will be north of the region. Otherwise look for thinning middle to 
high clouds. It is possible there could also be lingering wildfire 
smoke but there are too many variable, many of which are non- 
meteorological, to have much confidence. Then Thursday night into 
Friday shortwave a Flat Ridge enters, with continued dry weather. 


From Friday night into Sunday a couple features move on the 
region. First a trough in the Pacific moves toward the coast. One 
or two impulses rounding it will have opportunity to move across 
the Cascades and northern mountains, if not the entire region. 
There is disagreement on the strength and track of these impulses. 
Yet it is enough to suggest increased clouds through the region 
starting Friday night and a shower/thunderstorm threat by the 
weekend across the Cascades and northern mountains. Secondly low 
pressure off the California coast is projected to shift inland Friday and 
track northeast Friday night into the weekend, at least skimming 
by southeast Washington and the lower Panhandle. This too will lead to 
some increased cloud cover throughout the region. A threat of 
showers and thunderstorms from this feature comes toward The Blues 
and Camas Prairie Friday night. In tandem with energy coming 
around the Pacific trough, this threat expand throughout the 
Panhandle mountains by next weekend. Whether the precipitation 
threat will also extend into the eastern Columbia Basin and 
eastern valleys next weekend is less certain given the wide range 
of model solutions. However given the opportunity for the 
atmosphere to become increasingly moist with each passing wave and 
some semblance of this threat amongst the model solutions, I added 
a slight chance to aforementioned areas for next Sunday. /J. Cote'

Aviation... 
00z tafs: wildfire smoke will continue to reduce visibilities to 
between 4-7 miles over much of the region...with greater 
restrictions around Chelan. A weak weather disturbance passing 
through tomorrow will result in mainly mid and high level 
clouds...with a few sprinkles possibly reaching the surface. There 
will also be a slight chance of thunderstorms on Monday in the 
Cascades. Jw
