NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
446 PM PDT Friday Oct 31 2014 


Synopsis... 
a slow moving frontal system will pass through the region over 
the next 24 to 36 hours. Light rain will slowly expand east 
late this afternoon through tomorrow. Conditions will dry from the 
west on Saturday. However a second disturbance will move through 
the southeast zones Saturday afternoon through Sunday and bring 
another round of precipitation. Snow levels will drop into the 
mid elevations into Sunday morning. Mild and unsettled weather is 
expected through next week. 


&& 


Discussion... 
tonight through Saturday...in the big picture a cold front 
currently moving to Cascades will split as it slowly track 
through the region tonight. The front will then stall along the 
Idaho/Montana border on Saturday and form a trowal along the Idaho/Montana border. 


The devil, however is in the details. There is plenty of moisture 
in the warm sector ahead of the cold front. P's up to an inch 
have moved east of the Cascades this afternoon, which is over 200 
percent of normal. Ephrata and Moses Lake picked up around .04 
with the warm front. More will follow until fropa, but with 
splitting nature of the front lift will decrease. The exception 
will be across the northeast mountains and the Idaho Panhandle 
where orographic lift will aid in the precipitation production. So 
for the eastern basin, the Palouse, l-c valley and the Spokane- 
Coeur D'Alene areas expect from a trace to just a few hundredths 
from now until 7-8 PM this evening, maybe even less. For the 
mountains possibly a tenth will be possible through this evening. 
Currently snow levels are are between 6500-8000 feet so 
precipitation will be as all rain. Conditions will dry out quickly 
over night behind the front. However westerly up-sloping flow will 
keep showers through the night for the Panhandle. 


The models have been indicating a a series of short wave disturbances 
moving through the region in southerly flow on Saturday. A mid 
level (700mb) deformation band associated with one of these waves 
will develop over the Blue Mountains early Saturday morning and 
move northeast through the Washington blues...the Camas Prairie 
and into the central Panhandle Saturday. With ample low and mid 
level moisture flow and moderate to strong dynamics the chances 
for precipitation were bumped up quiet a bit for my east and 
southeast zones. Everything is coming together so that this 
weather feature will be a good precipitation producer. Quantitative precipitation forecast amounts 
could be as much as a half of an inch for The Blues...Camas 
Prairie and southern Shoshone County. But the rain amounts should 
drop off quickly as one moves north of I-90 or west of the higher 
terrain. Snow levels remain fairly high, between 5500-6500 through 
Saturday afternoon in this area. So again mainly rain with 
localized High Mountain snow. 


Lastly ample low level moisture and light winds south or southwest 
will result in stratus/fog development for the basin...Palouse 
and Spokane-Coeur D'Alene corridor as well as the northern 
mountain valleys, especially if there is any kind of clearing 
overnight. /Tobin 


Saturday night through Sunday morning: the cold front moving 
into the region today will stall over the Idaho Panhandle. Colder 
and drier air will be pushing across eastern Washington behind the front 
with warmer more moist air riding over the front from the 
southeast. This will set up a low level boundary across the 
central Idaho Panhandle into western Montana. Winds at lower levels will 
be westerly to northwesterly into the Panhandle as well. This will 
create favorable upslope flow into the central Panhandle mtns and 
on the Camas Prairie. Snow levels will be decreasing through 
Saturday night. The big question is how low will snow levels get 
before the precip finally pushes east of the region. The NAM is 
the most aggressive in lowering snow levels to between 3,000 and 
3,500 ft. I have no reason to discount this idea with a good punch 
of cooler air moving in behind the front. This will result in at 
least a short period of snow above 3,000 ft in the central 
Panhandle mtns and over the Camas Prairie. Best snow accumulations 
are expected above 3,500 feet in the central Panhandle mtns where 
up to 4 inches will be possible through Sunday morning. This will 
include Lookout Pass, but confidence in this amount is low due to 
the uncertainty with how fast snow levels drop and when precip 
lets up due to drier air moving in at mid levels. Confidence is a 
bit higher for snowfall accumulations closer to 2 inches in the 
mountains. Due to this uncertainty, no highlights will be included 
in the afternoon package, but will be reassessed with future 
updates. Temperatures will be cooler but still near normal for 
late October or early November. Expect some frost possible around 
the region with lows approaching freezing for many locations, 
especially the mountains and mountain vlys. 


Sunday afternoon through tuesday: the region will see a short 
break between weather systems through Sunday into Monday morning. 
The next weather system will begin to push into the region Monday 
afternoon into Monday night. The first wave of moisture will ride 
in on a warm front. This will result in light precip across much 
of the region from Monday afternoon into Monday night. The warm 
front will be weak and many locations may only see increasing 
clouds and some sprinkles. Snow levels will increase above pass 
levels behind the front Monday night with precip chances 
increasing as strong isentropic forcing develops across the 
region. There will be good westerly flow at low to mid levels 
across the Cascade mtns, so I do expect a rain shadow to develop 
along the Lee side of the Cascade mtns once the warm front passes 
through. P-wats in the warm sector of this system will be up over 
an inch into the pac northwest. This will be approximately 2 
Standard deviations wetter than typically observed this time of 
year across the inland northwest. As such, a wet day is expected 
on Tuesday across much of extreme eastern Washington and in the Idaho 
Panhandle. Rainfall accumulations of 0.50 to 1.00 inches will be 
possible across these areas for a 24 hour period Monday night 
through Tuesday afternoon. Snow levels by this time will be 
increasing to between 6,000 and 8,000 feet; this will result in 
rainfall for most locations except the highest mtn peaks. 
Temperatures will be near normal through Monday and then become 
more mild Monday night into Tuesday. /Svh 


Tuesday night through Friday...not much dry weather in 
sight...at least not at the beginning of this period. Broad 
atmospheric river currently extending from just west of Hawaii 
north into Gulf of Alaska is expected to near the coast on late 
Sunday and slowly drift eastward through at least midweek. 
Initially the ample moisture will be carried into the region via 
swift zonal flow...however all extended model guidance is 
forecasting a gradual amplification of ridge in response to a 
deepening trough over the eastern Pacific. This will manifest 
itself as a warm front with the upper level jet migrating from the 
northern half of Washington on Tuesday night and into British Columbia on 
Wednesday and Thursday. Based on the availability of moisture and 
strong isentropic ascent associated with the warm front...we 
expect most locations to see precipitation between Tuesday night 
and Wednesday. All pops were raised well above climatology with 
the highest wet deviations expected to occur north of Highway 2 in 
Washington and i90 through north Idaho. There's a question as to 
how far south the precipitation will extend. The GFS is quite 
bullish on pushing the bulk of the precipitation north of the 
Canadian border by Wednesday night through Thursday. Meanwhile the 
European model (ecmwf) offers a much wetter solution as it amplifies the ridge 
farther to the east and pushes a robust trough through the region 
by afternoon. This is a significant amount of uncertainty...but 
the gefs leans more toward the European model (ecmwf) solution. So we will stick 
with a wetter than climatology solution...at least for the 
northern half of the forecast area. By Friday morning...all 
solutions move the atmospheric river well to our south as the 
upper level jet temporarily sags south. This will result in a 
subtle drying and cooling trend. 


Speaking of temperatures...things look quite mild. For Wednesday 
and Thursday highs will generally be in the 50s to lower 60s...but 
could get warmer should the warm front follow the GFS solution 
keeping the rain at Bay. These temps are about 10 degrees warmer 
than normal for this time of year. Cloud filled skies and warm 
dewpoints will also keep min temperatures mild as well. If we 
don't see freezing temperatures in Spokane this weekend...we won't 
likely see any until the cold front moves through late next 
week...and even then that's not a sure bet. Fx 


&& 


Aviation... 
00z tafs: a cold front is moving slowly through eastern Washington 
at the time and is expected to stall across the Idaho Panhandle 
tonight. Keat is behind the front and kmwh will be in the next 
few hours. This will bring an end to the precipitation. 
Downsloping off the Cascades will keep keat mostly VFR. Some 
ground fog may develop towards morning...but confidence is low. 
Kmwh will see variable conditions as winds change through the 
night. Expect fog/stratus devlopment around 06z with conditions 
MVFR/IFR then clearing late in the morning. The slow moving front will 
result in light light rain with VFR conditions through 03-04z. 
Then fog/stratus will develop with conditions dropping to IFR/LIFR 
cigs/vsby through 15z. A second wave will move northeast through 
the stalled front late Saturday morning for another chance of 
light rain...but improving conditions. /Tobin
