NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
446 am PDT Wednesday Apr 16 2014 


Synopsis... 
another weather system will bring more showers to the inland 
northwest today. A stronger system will result in widespread rain 
Thursday and Thursday night. At this time the Easter weekend 
looks to be mild and dry. Showers return to the forecast for the 
first part of next week. 


&& 


Discussion... 
today and tonight: an upper level shortwave disturbance will push 
across the region this morning into this afternoon. There will be 
a couple main forcing mechanisms that will help generate light 
rain and mountain snow this morning. One will be a 120 kt jet 
streak oriented northwest to southeast across western Washington. This will place 
eastern Washington and the Idaho Panhandle in the more favorable left exit 
region. We will also see some weak isentropic ascent across much 
of the eastern two-thirds of the forecast area. The one factor 
that will inhibit precip is relatively dry air near the surface. 
Dew point temps remain in the low to mid 20s across much of the 
region early this morning. It will take some time for the 
atmosphere to moisten through the morning hours before any precip 
is observed at the surface. Light rain and mountain snow is 
expected to fill in across the region after about 9:00 am this 
morning. At first I think we will see mainly stratiform precip, 
but should transition to more of a convective regime through the 
afternoon with the focus of precip gradually shifting more into 
the Idaho Panhandle into tonight. 


Thursday morning into Thursday afternoon: a much wetter weather 
system will enter into the region during this period. This system 
will feature stronger isentropic ascent in the warm sector with 
widespread stratiform precip across much of the region. Snow 
levels will increase to above 6,000 feet with mainly rain for all 
areas. Overall, Thursday will be a cloudy and increasingly rainy 
day. High temperatures both Wednesday and Thursday will be below 
normal topping out in the 50s to low 60s for most valley locations. 
/Svh 


Thursday night through saturday: well-defined cold front will move 
through the area Thursday night. The short wave aloft that 
accompanies this front has a nice negative tilt to it as it moves 
through the inland northwest. This would typically favor 
thunderstorm development. But in this case, the timing is off, as 
the trough moves through overnight instead of during the peak 
heating. The 500mb cold pool also moves over on Friday morning, 
again, not ideal for convection. However, the model timing has 
been changing over the past few runs. The GFS has been 
consistently trending slower, and the 00z European model (ecmwf) was slower than 
the 12z run. If that trend continues, then things may line up 
better for convection Thursday night as well as Friday afternoon. 


The models all agree on a fairly impressive moisture tap for this 
front. Precipitable water values are about two times normal for 
mid-April. So we should see some decent rainfall amounts from this 
system, in contrast to the past several fronts. 


The other issue with this system is the wind potential for 
Friday. The slower GFS has the strongest winds. But again, given 
the less- than-ideal timing of this system, I kept the winds in 
the 10-20 mph range. Rj 


Sunday through wednesday: the flow pattern over the inland 
northwest will become more southwest, or even south, with time as 
we head into next week. This means more active weather for most 
areas, eventually. The transition periods between Sunday and 
Monday morning look to stay mostly dry outside of the Cascades as 
a large trough gets closer to the Pacific northwest coastline. 
There are still some timing and placement issues with regards to 
the trough moving inland, but right now it looks like this will 
take place sometime Monday night or Tuesday. This forecast 
continues the trend of precipitation chances peaking during this 
time frame, and then trailing off for Wednesday (becoming more 
showery). Temperatures were adjusted slightly, but still look to 
be at or above normal by a few degrees. However, if clouds hold on 
longer or the rainfall is more prolonged, temperatures may 
struggle to reach normal. TY

Aviation... 
12z tafs: a weak weather system this morning will result in 
lowering cigs and light rain across the region. Cigs will 
generally remain above 3 kft agl, but MVFR conditions cannot be 
ruled out. Light stratiform rain will become more convective this 
afternoon with rain showers possible at the kgeg, ksff, kcoe, 
kpuw and klws taf sites. Cigs will improve this evening with 
showers limited mainly to the mountains. /Svh
