NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
409 am PST sun Nov 23 2014 


Synopsis... 
the mountains will receive another round of accumulating snow 
this afternoon and evening. The lower elevations will experience a 
mix of rain and wet snow today. Monday will be a relatively quiet 
and chilly day. More rain and heavy mountain snow is expected 
Monday night into Tuesday. A breezy and wet weather pattern will 
persist for much of the week with the mountains receiving several 
rounds of snow. 




&& 


Discussion... 


Today and tonight: another round of mountain snow is on the way 
for this afternoon and evening. The mountains of the Idaho 
Panhandle will likely receive additional 2 to 6 inches of snow 
with amounts up to 8 inches for the ridges in southern Shoshone 
County favored by northwest flow. The Cascade crest will also pick 
up a quick 8 to 12 inches beginning early this morning. 


The system bringing precipitation today and tonight is moving 
inland at this hour (230 am) into central British Columbia. As 
the surface low tracks eastward today, Washington and north Idaho 
will be in the warm sector leading to rising snow levels through 
the day and increasing south winds. The primary forcing 
mechanisms for precipitation will be warm/moist advection along a 
warm front and vigorous westerly upslope flow into the Cascades 
and Panhandle mountains. Despite the strong frontal forcing, the 
models are in good agreement that the Lee of the Cascades into the 
basin will be shadowed today due to mid-Level, Cross Cascade flow. 
Places like wenathcee, Moses Lake, and Grand Coulee probably won't 
see much (if any) precipitation today. The most significant 
precipitation will likely occur this afternoon and early this 
evening which isn't good news for folks who want to see snow 
accumulate. Places like Pullman, Spokane, Coeur D'Alene, and 
Davenport should see precipitation in the form of snow through 
early to mid afternoon. However temperatures in the mid to upper 
30s will make it difficult for snow to stick except on grassy 
surfaces. Places like Sandpoint, Bonners Ferry, Priest Lake and 
Metaline Falls will have a better shot of 1 to 2 inch 
accumulations this afternoon. 


By this evening, precipitation should be confined to the Idaho 
Panhandle and the Blue Mountains. Winds in the 850-700mb layer 
will veer to the northwest as this system moves into Alberta. This 
wind trajectory favors the mountains of Shoshone County, high 
terrain of the Camas Prairie, and Blue Mountains. Elsewhere, look 
for clearing skies this evening and light winds. Areas of fog 
should develop in the sheltered valleys of northeast Washington 
and possibly over the Palouse, West Plains, and upper Columbia 
Basin. 


Monday: a flat high pressure ridge on Monday should provide a 
break in the active weather on Monday at least during the morning. 
Another moist warm front is progged by the models to reach 
southern British Columbia by Monday afternoon. There some 
uncertainty with the track of this frontal system, but the 
majority of eastern Washington and north Idaho should remain dry 
Monday. The northern Cascades and Okanogan Highlands may 
experience some light snow Monday afternoon, but the heavier 
rain/snow will arrive Monday night into Tuesday. /Gkoch 


Monday night through Wednesday night...larger scale ridging builds 
in the vicinity of the West Coast during this time interval and 
alters the storm track pattern somewhat over time. Initially the 
ridging is off the coast and allows disturbances to drop down with 
a northwest to southeast trajectory and dig into any moisture 
streaming over the top of the amplifying ridge and steer it down 
to the south and southeast. Such an occurrence is expected Monday 
night into Tuesday. By late Tuesday the ridging off the coast 
stops amplifying and the ridge moves west which allows the 
northwest to southeast oriented storm track and jet to remain 
close in proximity to the southern British Columbia border and 
down into northwest Montana. The resulting close proximity of the 
jet stream and potential and models hinting at various shortwaves 
dropping down in the northwest flow on the east side of the narrow 
ridge there is good potential for some brisk gusty winds Tuesday 
and Wednesday. Since there is not much if any cold air in majority 
of lowland locations for disturbances to overrun a good portion of 
The Lowlands in the Lee of the Cascades and the north Idaho 
Panhandle pops are likely to remain high for mountain locations to 
the north but taper down to low to no pop amounts due to rain- 
shadow development for most of this forecast interval. The ridging 
and mixing brought about by disturbances dropping down the edges 
of the ridge allow for the bulk of forecast temperatures to remain 
on the warm side of what would be considered normal for this time 
of year with an exception Wednesday night when a push of cold 
Canadian air starts a cooling trend and lowers snow levels. 
/Pelatti 


Thanksgiving Thursday through sunday: once again we are faced 
with the dilemma that we have seen all week and that is continued 
poor model agreement in the extended forecast. For at least the 
last three nights the models have flip flopped completely for the 
end of the forecast. While some consistency was present for the 
12z runs and the afternoon forecast, it has all been lost with the 
00z runs. So what we have been debating for the past few days was 
to buy into the warmer and drier ridge pattern for the end of the 
week or take the cooler one with cold polar air dropping in from 
Canada. For this forecast package I went with the cooler based on 
agreement from other supporting models. The Euro today was the 
cooler solution and it had good support from both the Canadian and 
dgex and even the 12z GFS. The warmer solution this time 
encompassed the 00z and 18z GFS along with the 12z Euro. Funny 
enough, just 24 hours ago this was exactly the opposite with the 
majority in favor of the warmer solution. 


The scenario that was incorporated into this forecast was a cold 
polar front dropping in from Canada late Wednesday into 
Thanksgiving Thursday bringing a good shot of precipitation with 
moisture out ahead of the front. How to play pops here was very 
tricky and for the most part they were left unchanged until 
models better agree. This would keep the mention of precip for 
most throughout the extended, but if the Euro does verify we could 
expect significant drying behind the cold front. Precip on 
Wednesday into Thursday could lead to some less than stellar 
travel conditions for Turkey day mainly in the higher elevations 
and far north, but due to low confidence I would hold off on 
altering plans for now. Snow levels were lowered throughout and 
are expected to reach most valley floors (minus the southern 
valleys) by late Saturday as the cold air encompasses the region. 
Temperatures were also trended lower to near normal by the 
weekend, but will also need to be fine tuned once models better 
agree. Overall we see a forecast full of uncertainties, but we 
will expect better agreement once we get a little closer to this 
timeframe. /Fliehman 


&& 


Aviation... 
12z tafs: a band of precipitation is expected to Blossom over 
north Idaho and eastern Washington between 17-19z along a warm 
front. Precipitation over much of the region will initially be in 
the form of snow. Strong low level warm advection will likely lead 
to a transition to rain or rain/snow mix in Pullman, Spokane, and 
couer d'alene between 19z-21z. The late morning/early afternoon 
development of snow should limit accumulations to grassy surfaces 
with the exception of airports north of the Metro like Sandpoint, 
Bonners Ferry and Colville where slushy runway accumulations up to 
an inch will be possible. Dry/downslope advection from the 
west/northwest this evening should disperse stratus in the 
evening, but fog and low stratus may crop up toward Monday 
morning. /Gkoch
