NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
434 PM PDT Thursday Sep 18 2014 


Synopsis... 
a weak cold front will bring the potential for widely scattered 
showers this evening. A strong high pressure ridge will return 
Friday and promote warm and dry weather through Monday. High 
temperatures Sunday and Monday should be ten degrees above 
normal. The breakdown of this ridge...and a return to cooler 
conditions...will begin Tuesday. However...precipitation is not 
expected until Wednesday for most communities. 


&& 


Discussion... 
tonight and Friday...a weak cold front is moving through the 
Columbia Basin this afternoon. Radar and satellite suggests 
shower activity is spotty and light...and this is not expected to 
be a significant precipitation producer for the area. 
Still...there is plenty of moisture available and visible 
satellite indicates substantial sunbreaks which should decrease 
stability through the rest of the afternoon and into the early 
evening leading to scattered showers and possibly a stray 
thunderstorm over northeast Washington and particularly the Idaho 
Panhandle where orographic forcing will play a part in generating 
lift. Otherwise in general this frontal passage will be 
characterized by breezy conditions developing over the Columbia 
Basin as a tightening pressure gradient forms over eastern 
Washington in the wake of the cold front. 


Beyond this evening models are in decent agreement in building a 
ridge over the region...and this building ridge will severely 
weaken the next already weak system visible on satellite over 
Vancouver Island as it transits the region tonight and Friday 
morning...probably resulting in only mid level clouds for the 
area. By Friday afternoon the ridge will assert itself more 
aggressively with a general clearing trend. High temperatures 
Friday will probably achieve near or slightly cooler than today's 
highs...remaining slightly above normal for this time of year. 
Winds will remain noticeable and out of the west/southwest but 
only locally breezy. /Fugazzi 


Friday night through Monday morning...ridge of high pressure moves 
back into the area and amplifies considerably allowing for a dry 
forecast with a warming trend. Forecast temperatures remain on the 
warm side of what would be considered normal for this time of 
year. Ridge axis placement aloft translates from eastern 
Washington Friday night to well into central Montana on Monday 
morning. The surface pressure gradient seems to be the weakest 
Friday night which may allow for a repeat of late night and early 
morning low clouds and fog in the more sheltered northern valleys. 
/Pelatti 


Monday through thursday: this period will mark the transition period 
from dry and warm conditions under an upper-level ridge toward 
cooler and wetter fall-like conditions under an upper-level 
trough. Overall, models are in decent agreement with the changes 
forthcoming but how quick this transition occurs still carries 
moderate uncertainty. Confidence is above normal that the ridge 
will remain in place through Monday afternoon continuing to 
deliver dry weather and above normal warmth as 850mb temperatures 
top out near 20 celsius. The first blow to the ridge will come 
through Monday night into Tuesday. A bulk of the energy associated 
with this wave will be deflected to the north into southern British Columbia and 
although the disturbance will tap into some decent moisture, the 
region will see very little precipitation with this feature. 
Current thoughts support increased clouds and spotty sprinkles. A 
few locations in the northern mountains will have the best chance 
for a few hundredths. A deeper trof will shift from the ern pac 
into the region late Tuesday through Thursday. This is when the 
ridge will be scrubbed out of the pac northwest and precipitation chances 
will be on the rise. The Cascades and northern mountains are a 
sure bet for precipitation with the leading baroclinic band slowly 
trickling across Washington allowing southerly midlevel flow to setup. In 
fact, with the flow parallel to the meridional front, models have 
slowed the onset of precipitation into the Idaho Panhandle until 
Wednesday evening...perhaps even latter. The basin should also get 
some rain out of the system but amounts are far from certain. The 
slower frontal passage will keep the moisture over any location 
longer but also favor weaker lift along the front. Additionally, 
given some minor timing differences, we have held off on incr pops 
until our confidence is higher. Following Monday which will 
feature temperatures in the 80s, temperatures will gradually fall 
a few degrees each day returning to more seasonal 60s to 70s by 
Thursday. /Sb 


&& 


Aviation... 
00z tafs: an upper trough migrates east tonight, while high 
pressure starts to build in Friday. Look for cloud cover, a few 
showers, particularly toward the northeast Washington mtns and north ID, 
and breezy conditions. Mainly Coe/puw/lws have a shower risk. The 
winds and shower threat wanes after 02-06z, with gradual clearing 
into Friday. Generally, VFR conditions are expected. Yet there is 
some potential for stratus to develop late overnight or early 
Friday morning (09-16z) from the Palouse north to the Spokane/c'da 
area. Some guidance shows some moisture in the boundary levels and 
a south to southwesterly flow, which could favor some upslope 
stratus development. However confidence is low at this time, but 
this will be monitored for possible brief MVFR/IFR cigs. /J. Cote'
