NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
446 PM PDT Tuesday Sep 23 2014 


Synopsis... 
more autumn like weather is on the way for the remainder of the 
work week. A slow moving cold front will bring an increased 
chance of rain to central Washington for Wednesday and Thursday, 
then showers will spread to eastern Washington and north Idaho 
for Friday and Saturday. Cooler temperatures will follow the cold 
front Thursday and Friday. A slight warming and drying trend is 
expected for next week. 


&& 


Discussion... 
this evening: an upper level disturbance embedded within an 
increasingly moist southwesterly flow will produce scattered 
showers. The most concentrated activity will likely occur over the 
north Idaho Panhandle and far northeast Washington as the 
disturbance moves into Canada. A handful of lightning strikes will 
be possible through about 7pm with the axis of best instability 
from Colville to Sandpoint to Mullan. 


Tonight through wednesday: a soaking rain is expected tonight 
into Wednesday over the Cascades and possibly as far east as the 
Okanogan Highlands. We will be monitoring rain amounts over the 
2014 burn scars, especially those in Methow Valley. At this time, 
it looks like a quarter to a half an inch of rainfall tonight into 
tomorrow over the fresh burn scars. Rain intensity probably won't 
exceed a tenth of an inch per hour, so our feeling is that the 
flash flood/mud slide threat will be low. However, surveys of this 
area suggest that the soil is not receptive to absorbing much 
rainfall, so some runoff is expected. Small streams and creeks 
around Twisp, Winthrop and Carlton may experience some rises and 
could run pretty dirty for the next few days. 


The system that will bring the rainfall is organizing along the 
Washington coast this afternoon. The 2pm visible satellite shows a 
deeply occluded low in the eastern Pacific and a moist frontal 
system approaching the coast. Bands of precipitation in western 
Washington will become more organized tonight as the front moves 
inland. The majority of rainfall over the east slopes of the 
Cascades will likely occur between midnight and noon. As the front 
enters the Columbia Basin Wednesday afternoon, we expect it to 
become increasingly stretched and sheared...a by-product of the 
longwave trough digging well south into California. There is good 
agreement between the GFS, NAM and European model (ecmwf) that the mid-level front 
will stall west of Spokane Wednesday afternoon and retrograde 
(move west) Wednesday night. If this scenario pans out, much of 
the Idaho Panhandle will remain relatively dry from late this 
evening until Thursday evening. 


Thursday through Saturday...cooler and unsettled weather will 
prevail as the region remains under the influence of an upper 
level low that is presently spinning off the Washington coast. The 
progress east will be slow as the upper jet takes on a more north- 
south orientation. This will keep the inland northwest in moist 
southerly flow aloft. A frontal boundary will move slowly across 
the forecast area Thursday then morph into more of a deformation 
zone across the eastern zones for Friday. As the low moves inland 
and drops to the south across southern Oregon and northern 
California on Friday night we will see more of a trowel pattern in 
the wrap around moisture. This will keep pops highest across the 
southeast zones, closest to the moisture fetch and where upslope 
flow will enhance lift. There is a good chance of wetting rains 
for most of the forecast area for the end of the work week and 
into the weekend. Some areas may get a quarter to a half inch of 
rain if the frontal band stalls out or if deformation bands form. 
The combination of precipitation and mostly cloudy skies will keep 
daytime temperatures at or below seasonal normals with overnight 
lows remaining rather mild. For now we are not seeing any 
indication of strong winds with this frontal passage. /Kelch 


Saturday night through tuesday: one area of low pressure will be 
to our south and a second wave of low pressure will drop out of 
the Gulf of Alaska. The region will generally be sandwiched between 
these systems Saturday night through Monday. Clouds and areas of 
light precipitation wrapping around the southern low will skirt 
far southeastern Washington and the Idaho Panhandle while central and most of 
eastern Washington experience dry conditions...at least that is the 
thought process right now. This was well represented by the GFS, 
00z ec, and 00z ec ensemble mean however the recent 12z ec wavered 
once again and now wraps this precip back to the Cascades so we 
have held off completely removing Cascade pops for this reason but 
it appears to be an outlier. The incoming Pacific trof looks to 
make landfall sometime during the Sunday night/Monday timeframe. 
This energy will act as a "kicker" to the trof to our south but 
models hardly indicate any break in the precipitation as a 
departing deformation axis gets replaced with moist upsloping 
flow. Precipitation chances will ramp back up for the Cascades 
and northern mountains as well. The Columbia Basin will be most 
favored to escape the weekend without any precipitation, initially 
given its placement between systems then due to increasing 
westerly flow and Cascade rain shadow. Needless to say, we are not 
very confident with the forecast after Sunday morning with endless 
runs of model inconsistencies. The system is just a minor wave 
west of the Aleutian island chain and its likely that more changes 
will come in the upcoming days. Overall, temperatures will be near 
or close to seasonal readings which are cooling back into the 
upper 60's to mid 70's. /Sb 




&& 


Aviation... 
00z tafs: a moist southerly flow will continue ahead of a 
slow-moving longwave trough. A warm front lifting through this 
evening will carry light precipitation threat to most of the taf 
sites. However as the night progresses the main focus for 
precipitation will shift west toward the Cascades and western 
basin, along the incoming cold front, after 06-09z. That boundary 
will slow or stall on Wednesday, keeping the main precipitation 
threat toward eat/mwh. A lower level easterly flow and increased 
moistening of the lower levels into the Cascades will bring the 
opportunity for MVFR cigs near eat. Some rain threat will begin 
to edge east again toward geg by late afternoon or evening 
Wednesday. Marginally breezy conditions are expected over the 
eastern taf sites toward mid-Wednesday. /J. Cote'
