Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
425 PM PST Friday Nov 28 2014 


Synopsis... 
a showery and breezy weather pattern will continue over far 
eastern Washington and the Idaho Panhandle tonight, but snow 
levels will remain above pass levels for motorists traveling. A 
strong push of cold Arctic air will bring very windy conditions 
to the Okanogan Valley tonight and Saturday. Cold conditions, with 
a few minor snow bearing weather disturbances, are forecast for 
the upcoming work week. 


&& 


Discussion... 


..very windy conditions tonight and Saturday in the Okanogan 
Valley and portions of southeast Washington and the southern Idaho 
Panhandle... 


..much colder and blustery weather set to arrive this weekend 
across the entire inland northwest... 


A complex weather scenario will unfold during the overnight hours 
across the inland northwest. The main gist of tonight's weather 
will revolve around the southeast plunge of a strong surface low 
currently over extreme southeast British Columbia and the Arctic 
cold front associated with it. 


As of 2pm...the front was located generally north of the 
Washington/British Columbia border...as noted by surface observations and isallobaric 
analysis...however the one exception was noted over the extreme 
northern tip of the Okanogan Valley...mainly the Oroville area. 
Based on recent trends...we fully expect the front to continue 
dropping southward overnight...with precipitation coverage 
steadily increasing ahead of it based on deep frotogenetic 
circulations combined with a good pool of available moisture. We 
expect most locations too see some precipitation overnight. While 
most of it will be fairly light based on a steady frontal 
progression...good westerly mid-level flow will add to the 
orographic ascent resulting in higher precipitation amounts over 
the Idaho Panhandle and near the Cascade crest. Precipitation 
totals could near an inch over these favored locations with much 
lighter amounts elsewhere. We expect most of the precipitation to 
fall ahead of the cold air which will limit potential snowfall 
amounts. Even in the mountains this will be the case...with 
current snow levels between 5-6k feet. Near the Cascades...the 
snow levels will be 1-2k feet lower so some snow will be possible 
there. We will also need to keep our eye out for locally heavy 
snow late tonight near the crest due to the formation of a Post- 
frontal Puget Sound convergence zone. Most model solutions place 
this feature across the western Chelan County as opposed to 
western Okanogan County...so this could definitely impact travel 
later tonight as snow rates could get quite high for a brief time. 


The other story for tonight will be the strong south to southwest winds 
blowing into the British Columbia low. These winds will likely remain fairly 
strong into the evening...and then will begin to lax overnight as 
the Arctic front begins to pass. Based on guidance from the uw MM5 
model...we will continue with the Wind Advisory for the 
southeastern third of Washington and a small part of the southern 
Idaho Panhandle. Still looks like wind gusts of 40-45 mph will be 
possible through the evening. By midnight...winds should be well 
below criteria...however after that...we expect things to pick up 
dramatically through the Okanogan Valley as the Arctic air rushes 
in. We will also issue a wind highlight for this event. 


Temperature forecasts for tonight will be quite tough. Typically the 
model guidance GOES too cool with lows when we are faced with an 
incoming Arctic front as the winds actually keep temperatures up 
to a moderate extent. We will go with that notion and either 
forecast using the mildest MOS guidance or go slightly warmer than 
even that. Fx 


Saturday through Sunday...the transition from the current wet 
maritime air mass to a Bone dry Arctic air mass will dominate the 
weather issues for this period. An upper level trough currently 
diving through British Columbia will clip the northern and eastern 
reaches of the forecast area over the next 24 hours. This trough 
will drag a shot of Arctic air in the form of a strong surface 
high pressure into the forecast area from the north overnight 
tonight and through Saturday. The best conduit for this cold 
dense air will be through the narrow and constricted Okanogan 
Valley. Starting tonight very windy conditions will develop down 
the Okanogan Valley and onto the Waterville Plateau. A Wind 
Advisory is well justified for this veritable fire hose of frigid 
air howling into the Columbia Basin over the next 24 hours. 
Previous case histories...all the available model guidance and 
surface observations from upstream Canadian stations suggests only 
Wind Advisory criteria (30 to 39 mph sustained with gusts to 57 
mph) will be reached...but the magnitude of this Arctic push and 
the geographic orientation of the gradient is somewhat ominously 
unprecedented and subsequent shifts will need to monitor this 
closely for the possibility of upgrading to a High Wind Warning 
and/or potentially broadening out the areal extent of the advisory 
to include the Moses Lake area. 


The arriving upper trough and Arctic front will form such a Stark 
air mass boundary that even though moisture is quickly decreasing 
frontal lift may be enough to squeeze out an area of snow showers 
or at least flurries over the northern and eastern zones as far 
south as the Pullman area during the day Saturday. Minor 
accumulations are possible on area roads across the eastern basin 
and valleys of the northeast mountains. In the Shoshone County 
mountains these new snow showers and residual upslope rain and 
snow showers from the current Pacific moisture feed late tonight 
and early tomorrow could create some slippery and hazardous 
driving conditions across Lookout Pass from rain soaked roads 
freezing overnight followed by a dusting to an inch or two of snow 
on top...enough to concern Holiday travelers and thus warranting 
continuing the current Winter Weather Advisory. 


Saturday night and Sunday will be a benign but cold period with 
decreasing winds and likely considerable sunshine as the Arctic 
air mass becomes established and the northerly pressure gradient 
eases into a more placid high pressure over southern British Columbia. /Fugazzi 


Sunday night through Friday..flattened ridge void of shortwaves 
passage leaves a cloudy yet precipitation free Sunday night with 
cool northeast winds to work with. Low confidence for Monday and 
Monday night with the same model differences continuing. The 
latest European model (ecmwf) is now closer to solution to the current GFS and a 
number of old GFS runs which places a stalled wet frontal zone 
much further north. Older European model (ecmwf) runs held the stalled frontal zone 
further south and away from the forecast area. Current European model (ecmwf) 
suggests Monday and Monday night placement of the stalled front 
just south of a line from Moses Lake to Colfax to Lookout Pass. So 
I should just state now with the low confidence in placement of 
this stalled frontal zone the Monday and Monday night pops and 
associated weather are highly likely to be changed and 
concentrated on. On the bright side there still is some 
consistency in the eventual appearance of a weakly amplifying 
negatively tilted ridge that splits and erodes the stalled frontal 
zone allowing for a brief drying and warming trend for Tuesday 
into Tuesday night. Wednesday through Friday is another low 
confidence interval as even the consistent European model (ecmwf) is now bringing 
in a wet low pressure system up from a warm southwest trajectory 
which would start precipitation out as snow in the beginning for 
just about all elevations as early as Wednesday but snow level 
would rise with temperatures and change it to rain for lowland and 
valley locations. Older European model (ecmwf) solutions suggested the 
Tuesday/Tuesday night ridge would stick around longer and the warm 
wet system with the southwest trajectory would be over Washington 
Thursday afternoon and beyond. So to summarize...I have more 
confidence in the dry Tuesday/Tuesday night interval than I do 
with the highly uncertain weather potential contained in the 
Monday,Monday night and Wednesday through Friday portion of the 
forecast. /Pelatti

Aviation... 
00z tafs: main focus through this period will revolve around 
strong cold front dropping across the British Columbia/Washington border and a rapid 
intensification of the precipitation shield over the area. 
Confidence is high that all sites aside from mwh and eat will see 
periods of -ra...however bigger question is will cigs lower to 
MVFR or worse. The longer the rain persists...the better the 
chances...so we placed these conditions in the geg Coe and puw 
forecasts but confidence isn't terrific. The front will exit all 
the sites before 12z Sat...with drier conditions expected. Other 
concern this evening will be the strong winds and potential for 
low level wind shear. The Spokane wind profiler is still showing 
south winds about 1500 feet above the ground with speeds nearing 
50 kts. Based on surface wind reports and forecasts this will 
result in some wind shear but not enough to satisfy the necessary 
criteria. The exception is at puw where surface winds have been 
quite erratic and much lighter than anywhere else nearby. Winds 
will weaken overnight at most sites with the direction gradually 
turning to more of a west-north direction. Fx 




Note: the visible sensor at eat is out of service so amendments to 
visible are not scheduled. The offending sensor replacement is on 
order and may be returned to service by Saturday.
