NWS Forecaster Discussion

Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
521 PM PDT Friday Mar 27 2015 

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. 


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 


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
