NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
527 am PDT Monday Oct 20 2014 


Synopsis... 
temperatures Monday will continue to run be well above average 
with afternoon readings in the upper 60s to low 70s. Clouds will 
be on the increase Monday ahead of the next frontal system. Rainy 
and unsettled weather will return Monday night into Tuesday. 
Significant rain is expected Wednesday into Thursday for much of 
the region. 


&& 


Discussion... 


Today through Tuesday...the main focus for this period will revolve 
around deep offshore trough and elongated cold front currently 
hung up over western Washington. The front contains a nice plume 
of precipitable water ranging from 1-1.25 inches with widespread 
precipitation according to radar imagery. While we expect the 
front to translate eastward through the day and tonight...the 
question is how fast will it move. Thus far it has made very 
little eastward progress due to continued digging on the backside 
of the trough. However that digging will likely cease soon as 
water vapor imagery is showing one last chunk of energy pushing 
into the southwest quadrant of the offshore trough. Consequently 
we will see a slowly increasing pop trend through the 
day...beginning near the Cascades this morning...possibly 
impacting Omak...Wenatchee...and most of the Lee valleys. 
Precipitation amounts won't be heavy as the front will contain at 
least some weak downslope impacts due to south-southwest mid-level 
flow passing over the Cascades. By afternoon...the front will 
likely shift into the eastern portions of the Columbia Basin and 
Okanogan Highlands...with increasing downslope flow forming in the 
Lee of the Cascades. Odds are growing...that extreme eastern 
Washington and the Panhandle will be dry for most of the day. 


By tonight...the front will move into extreme eastern Washington 
and the Idaho Panhandle...increasing pops significantly. The 
location standing the best chance of precipitation will be over 
the southeast corner of Washington and the southern Idaho Panhandle. This 
focus will be based on the positioning of the front combined with 
the ejection of the upstream upper level trough. Models in good 
agreement that the base of the trough will track NE and moving 
into eastern Oregon by morning. This allows for good upper level 
jet difluence...and fair q-vector convergence. This amounts to 
rather strong and deep lifting potential which in turn will likely 
lead to widespread precipitation over this area. The good threat 
of precipitation will likely persist through Tuesday morning. 
After this time...the base of the upper level trough is expected 
to shift into southeast Idaho with temporary shortwave ridging filling in 
over the inland northwest. This will result in lower chances for 
precipitation...except perhaps for the Camas Prairie...and 
southern Shoshone County. Precipitation amounts from this 
evening...will likely show a great variation...with the southeast 
quadrant of the forecast area potentially seeing the most 
precipitation. The NAM suggests widespread amounts ranging from 
0.25-0.50 stretching from Sandpoint to The Blues and points east. 
Meanwhile the GFS...sref...and European model (ecmwf) keeps the heaviest 
precipitation locked south and east of a line from the the Silver 
Valley to Lewiston. Aside from precipitation...temperatures will 
continue to exhibit their warm string...with highs today in the 
mid 60s to mid 70s. This is about 10 degrees warmer than normal 
for this time of year. Temperatures will likely cool toward normal 
on Tuesday. Fx 


Tuesday night through Friday... 


..Pacific moisture will bring soaking rains across the region and 
high elevation snow in the Cascades for middle week... 


A large closed off the central British Columbia coast along 140w 
will result in a wet southwesterly flow over the region. An 
atmospheric river with subtropical moisture will get aimed at the 
region Wednesday and Wednesday night before sagging south into 
northern Oregon and southeast Washington on Thursday. However 
continued waves coming around the low in the southwest flow will 
keep a wet pattern in place. Strong mid level flow with 850mb 
winds out of the south- southwest at 25-40 kts will provide strong 
upslope flow into the northern mountains...with the Cascade crest 
area expected to receive the highest rainfall totals. Models 
continue to show the potential for as much as 2-3 inches of rain 
for the Cascade crest and 1-2 inches for the northern mountains. 
The burn scar areas will have to be monitored with these rain 
amounts. The Spokane area and central Panhandle mountains should 
also see appreciable rain with around 0.5-0.75 inches expected. 
Snow levels around 6000 feet will result in heavy accumulations 
for the higher Cascade peaks. Cloud cover and occasionally breezy 
south winds will keep lows temperatures on the mild side...while 
day time highs should be near normal. Jw 


Friday night through Monday night: an extended period of unsettled 
weather is expected over the inland northwest during this period. 
The models have come in once again wetter for the end of the work 
week into the first part of the weekend. The trough will finally 
move inland Friday night/Saturday, which will bring another round 
of showers and high elevation snowfall. But this will not be the 
end of the precipitation. Yet another trough sets up off the 
coast, which could bring another extended period of wet weather. 
Early indications are that another atmospheric river will set up 
over/near the inland northwest, which would cause some flooding 
concerns. 


This forecast raised precipitation chances each day. If there 
were a period where lower rainfall chances were warranted it would 
be Sunday afternoon. The cloud cover and precipitation will allow 
for afternoon temperatures to fall closer to normal, and even be 
right at normal late in the weekend. However, the cloud cover 
should also keep low temperatures a bit warmer than normal. Ty&& 


Aviation... 
06z tafs:12z tafs: slow moving cold front currently west of the 
Cascades will trudge slowly east through the forecast period. This 
will result in an increasing cloud trend for all forecast sites 
as well as an increasing chance of precipitation. Through 
00z...the main chances for -ra will impact eat followed by mwh. 
After 00z...the threat will spread to the remaining sites. Precip 
amounts will be fairly light for mwh and eat and as such we 
primarly expect VFR conditions. Rainfall potential will increase 
after 00z...with moderate rainfall possible for puw and lws aft 
06z. We stuck with VFR cigs...however brief MVFR conditions will 
be possible if rainfall becomes heavy and persistent enough. Other 
concern is patchy hz/br impacting mwh/eat this morning. Satellite 
shows nothing in these areas so suspect its rather local and 
should burn off between 16-18z. Fx
