NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
453 am PDT Wednesday may 27 2015 


Synopsis... 
a slow moving low pressure system will bring scattered afternoon 
and evening showers and thunderstorms to the inland northwest 
today. Locally heavy downpours, frequent lightning, and small 
hail will be possible. Low pressure will gradually depart by 
Thursday, bringing a decrease in precipitation chances, but 
chances may increase again by early next week across the region. 
Temperatures warm back above normal from Wednesday into the end of 
the week, with highs pushing into the 80s Thursday Onward.

Discussion... 
today and thursday: the upper level low pressure system that has 
brought showers and thunderstorms to the region the last few days 
is currently circulating over southeast Washington. The low will continue 
on a southeast trajectory through this afternoon. This is expected 
to focus more widespread shower activity over the southeast 
portion of the region underneath the cold pool of the upper level 
low. This will primarily include the Palouse, over into the 
central Panhandle mtns and points southward. The boundary layer 
will remain fairly moist across much of the rest of the region. We 
will not see a situation where there will be an abundant amount of 
drier air that filters into the region out of Canada. As such, 
daytime heating is expected to result in afternoon convection 
across much of the rest of the region as well (especially over the 
mtns), but will be more isolated to scattered in coverage further 
away from the center of the low. 


Models do show fairly good surface based CAPES over the east 
slopes of the northern Cascade mtns of around 700 j/kg and not 
much in the way of cin needed to be overcome. The atmosphere 
itself will also remain on the juicier side with p-wats neat 
three-quarters of an inch. Storm motion will be slow on the order 
of 10-15 mph to the south-southwest. All these factors will once 
again result in some concerns for heavy rain on recent burn scars 
from the 2013 and 2014 fire seasons. Satellite imagery does not 
show much mid to high level cloud cover upstream of the Cascades 
early this morning. This should result in a good amount of 
sunshine today with better surface heating expected compared to 
the last couple of afternoons. This should make it easier for this 
area to achieve there convective potential and realize the 700 
j/g of cape. There is also the possibility of multiple slow moving 
thunderstorms moving over the same area. This would be a worse 
case scenario for the burn scar locations. The good news is that 
the best instability looks to be a bit west of where the worst 
burn scar locations are such as the Carlton complex and Mills 
Canyon burn scars. Confidence is low that heavy rain would lead to 
flash flooding or debris flows, but at least a small risk will be 
present for this afternoon. 


The upper level low will push into Colorado on Thursday. With that 
said, dew points will remain in the 40s and low 50s. Cin will be 
weaker over the higher terrain and there will be a good chance for 
afternoon showers and thunderstorms once again in the afternoon. 
The basin will have a harder time getting any convection going 
with a stronger cap in place. 


Temperatures will see a warming trend over the next couple of 
days. Many locations will be up over or near 80 degrees by 
Thursday and back above normal for late may. /Svh 


Thursday night through Wednesday...zonal flow across the region 
through the weekend as another closed low drops into central b.C. 
Thursday and slowly moves east and out of the area on Sunday. 
Meanwhile satellite imagery is also showing a deeper closed low 
out near 40n/150w. This second feature will be the dominant 
weather feature towards the end of the forecast period. 


Thursday night through Saturday night...a closed low currently 
seen on water vapor imagery just moving into haida qwaii will 
drop into central b.C. Thursday night and slowly move east well 
north of the border through early Sunday morning. This will put 
the region into a zonal/westerly flow. This isn't typically an 
overly wet weather pattern for this area. However model guidance 
continues to show little in the way of drying as the flow pattern 
changes. Pwat's remain 150% or more above normal. This additional 
moisture will add to the normal destabilization process due to 
afternoon heating. Several weak waves moving through the forecast 
area will be the icing on the cake for late day showers and 
embedded thunderstorms. Storm motion is on the low end so the 
biggest challenge will be localized heavy rain. However models are 
indicating a better shear environment each afternoon so there may 
some localized pea sized or slightly larger hail. Temperatures 
will be on the increase through the weekend with temperatures in 
the 80s and 90s. I did cool off Max temperatures Sunday due to 
lower 850 temps and increased cloud cover. 


Sunday through Wednesday...the previously mentioned low out in the 
Pacific will finally make it's way towards the West Coast, again 
as a closed low. Models are still having some timing issues but 
they all have the low move through the forecast area in some 
fashion Monday and Wednesday. This will result in cooler 
temperatures and another round of wet, and likely very wet 
convection. Interestingly this pattern is typically a good one for 
thunderstorms but model guidance is not showing anything but weak 
surface based cape and negative Lis for the southeast zones and 
the Cascades. Pops were increased accordingly and will go ahead 
and hold off on going to wild with the thunderstorm threat at this 
time, but stay tuned, certainly there is more to come. 
Temperatures will also cool from the very warm weekend with Max 
temperatures mainly in the 60s and 70s. But this is still above 
seasonal averages. Tobin

Aviation... 
12z tafs: an upper level low pressure system will reside over kpuw 
and klws today. Although there is some mid level clouds wrapping 
around the low, there has been enough clearing overnight for low 
stratus and fog to form across the northern valleys and may 
briefly impact kgeg, ksff and kcoe with MVFR vis possible through 
15z. Isolated to scattered showers will then develop in the 
afternoon across much of the region; kgeg, ksff, kcoe, kpuw, and 
klws taf sites will see the best chances for showers. Isolated 
thunderstorms will also be possible at these taf locations through 
the afternoon with confidence a bit higher for thunderstorms at 
kpuw and klws taf locations. /Svh
