NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
434 PM PDT sun Apr 26 2015 


Synopsis... 
after a few lingering mountain showers this evening, expect a 
drying and warming trend through Tuesday. Between Tuesday night 
and Thursday a system brings more seasonal temperatures, breezy 
conditions and a threat of showers, followed by a general drying 
trend by the weekend. 


&& 


Discussion... 
tonight and Monday...an upper level ridge is sprouting over the 
forecast area today. Satellite imagery does not clearly show this 
due to a feed of moisture impinging on the northwest coast...but 
models are in good agreement in rapidly strengthening this ridge 
aloft and allowing the incoming moisture field to be shunted off 
to the north of the region tonight. The approaching deep trough 
visible far out over the Pacific near 150w will plausibly allow 
this strengthening. However...areas of thick high clouds will 
transit the region through the next 24 hours as this high altitude 
moisture enhances over a mid level warm front. The only real 
chance of precipitation will be over the high Cascades overnight 
tonight near the crest...closer to the deeper moisture and 
benefiting from orographic ascent just over the crest on the west 
side. 


Otherwise a quiet and cool night is on tap but not as cold as 
last night. Residual boundary layer moisture from yesterday's 
shower activity may set the stage for some more valley fog tonight 
to the north of the basin but not as extensive as this morning. 


Monday will be a dry day with filtered sunshine and light winds as 
the ridge strengthens. High temperatures will bounce back up to 
slightly above normal at most locations. /Fugazzi 


Monday night to thursday: the inland northwest transitions from warm 
and dry to cooler and breezy with shower chances, as an amplified 
ridge is replaced by a deep trough. Between Monday night and 
Tuesday the ridge axis will be shifting east, while the trough 
axis advances to the coast. This puts the region in a Stout 
southwesterly flow, giving much of the region the warmest day of 
the week. Regional 850mb temperatures rise into the lower to mid- 
teens, supporting highs some 10 to 15 degrees above normal. The 
exception will be near the Cascades as the onshore flow and first 
shortwave rounding the parent trough brings a relative cool-down 
here. That shortwave will bring some clouds and a chance of 
showers to the Cascades crest too. The other region that may 
receive some showers and perhaps some thunder will be the 
northeast mountains by afternoon, with steepening lapse rates and 
some marginal cape per some models. More likely, however, these 
factors will just lead to afternoon cumulus in this region. The 
approaching trough will also lead to breezy conditions by mid to 
later afternoon as pressure gradients tighten between the two air 
masses. 


Between Tuesday night into Wednesday a second shortwave rounds 
the parent trough and helps propel a cold front across the region. 
This will bring the next best chance of precipitation. Clouds and 
shower chances expand between late evening and Wednesday morning. 
The modest westerly and downslope flow should keep the 
precipitation threat to a minimum in the Lee of the Cascades. 
Additionally, outside of the Cascade crest and northeast 
mountains, it appears the precipitation duration and amounts 
should be limited because the front appears to pass relatively 
quickly. However there is some elevated instability along the 
front and I wouldn't rule out some thunder or at least locally 
enhanced precipitation rates. Confidence is only high enough to 
place some thunder chances across the northern mountains Tuesday 
evening. 


Wednesday afternoon and Wednesday night the main upper trough 
migrates across the inland northwest. There is some disagreement on the 
timing and these differences will continue to be ironed out. In 
general the trough will be accompanied by another cold pool. It 
doesn't appear as strong of a cold pool as the one that crossed 
this Saturday (yesterday), but it should be enough to bring some 
threat of hit-and-miss showers and perhaps some isolated thunder 
during the afternoon and evening hours. The main risk will be 
around the mountains. However a few showers cannot be ruled out 
over the eastern Columbia Basin under the unstable trough. The 
risk wanes through the evening and overnight with the loss of 
daytime heating and a Flat Ridge nudging in from the west. Expect 
otherwise breezy conditions, a few clouds and temperatures cooling 
closer to seasonal averages. 


By Thursday models start to diverge over the details of the 
pattern. However in a loose way they show a Flat Ridge migrating 
over the region while another shortwave trough approaches 
northwest Washington. Currently that next trough is weaker and tracks 
further north than wednesday's. In general look for some 
clouds from the west-northwest. A slight chance of showers was kept 
near the central and southern Panhandle mountains due to some 
model disagreements on how quickly wednesday's trough exits. 
Shower chances will also spread into the Cascades and skim along 
the British Columbia/US border with the approach of that next wave. Otherwise 
conditions look mostly dry and seasonal. /J. Cote' 


Thursday night through monday: the general consensus amongst the 
medium range models is for progressive westerly flow to setup 
across the inland northwest with shortwave trofs rippling through at 
times. Models continue to struggle with the details of these 
features but overall, this looks to be a low impact weather period 
with the potential for light mountain showers and at times, breezy 
afternoon winds in the basin. Temperatures will be very close to 
seasonal readings topping out in the 60s to lower 70s. The 
GFS/European model (ecmwf) have been hinting at the idea of an area of low pressure 
branching off from the mean flow and drifting down the pac northwest 
coastline early next work week. If this were to occur, the region 
would experience increasing southerly flow increasing the threat 
for afternoon T-storms and above normal warmth. At this time, 
confidence remains low regarding any particular model details in 
that time-frame but definitely something to keep an eye on. /Sb

Aviation... 
00z tafs: a building upper level ridge aloft and weak high 
pressure at the surface will promote VFR conditions at all taf 
sites through at least 00z Tuesday. Morning fog will exist 
through 18z in the northern valleys of NE Washington and Idaho before 
burning off. Mountain cumulus is expected through the afternoon 
hours.
