NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
225 PM PST sun Dec 21 2014 


Synopsis... 
the active weather from the past few days quiet down Monday. 
Expect dry conditions and cooler but still above normal 
temperatures tonight through Monday night. Light mountain snow and 
valley rain or snow will return late Tuesday. An organized storm 
system will impact the region around Christmas eve. This will 
bring the potential for moderate to heavy snow in the mountains 
and light accumulations to the valleys. 


&& 


Discussion... 
tonight through Tuesday...the forecast area is entering a quiet 
break period tonight which will last through Monday night before 
things get active again during the day on Tuesday. 


The Pacific satellite image reveals the deep and strong fetch of 
Pacific moisture...the same feed that brought a general 1/2 to 
over 1 inch of rain to many lower elevations yesterday and up to a 
foot of heavy wet snow to the mountains and some of the northern 
Cascade valleys...is now directed into Oregon and has essentially 
moved out of the forecast area. The northern fringe of this axis 
is still producing mountain showers over the Cascades and the 
Idaho Panhandle mountains but the basin has benefited from a rain 
shadow in fast westerly mid level flow today. 


Models are in decent agreement in creating a building ridge just 
off the northwest coast which will keep the moisture feed buckles 
a directed to the south of the forecast area and allow a weak 
bleed of dryer Canadian Continental air to invade from the north. 
This will eventually end any lingering shower activity tonight 
and Monday and allow some sunshine and decreasing winds over the 
region. Winds will probably remain elevated enough to keep fog to 
a minimum Monday morning...but by Tuesday morning a placid high 
pressure to the east will once again allow pooling of moist low 
level air in the deep basin and banked against the Cascades for a 
higher threat of morning fog and low clouds. 


During the day on Tuesday the deep Pacific moisture feed will once 
again become favorably directed into the northwest coast...with 
the deepest axis clipping the northern forecast area as a weak 
warm front lifts through the region. This will promote increasing 
probabilities of light mountain snow and valley rain or snow by 
Tuesday afternoon mainly north of Interstate 90 with light 
accumulations possible in the valleys near the Canadian border and 
the Cascades. /Fugazzi 


..moderate threat for snow to impact mountain passes Wednesday... 


Tuesday night through thursday: a wet storm system continues to be 
advertised via the latest forecast models as a trof of low pressure 
drops out of the Gulf of Alaska and interacts with rich, narrow plume 
of moisture. There is still a split in model camps with the 
GFS/Canadian in one corner and European model (ecmwf)/sref/NAM in the other. Over 
the last 24 hours...the European model (ecmwf) has trend northward ever so slightly 
and now lines decently with the NAM/sref and at this time, this is 
the path our forecast has taken. However, we cannot completely 
ignore the GFS/Canadian given its consistency over the last 2-3 
days...and all guidance will be monitored closely. Generally 
speaking, the plume of subtropical moisture will sag into the 
region starting Tuesday night with precipitation developing over 
the northern mountains/valleys then sagging south through the day 
on Wednesday and finally departing to the southeast Thursday 
morning. Snow levels will start off low in the north with light 
valley snow possible but look to surge between 4-6k ft during the 
heaviest precipitation before crashing back near valley floors 
Wednesday evening/Thursday morning. A few light snow showers will 
linger over the Idaho Panhandle Thursday morning but for the most 
part, drier conditions coupled with seasonal temperatures will 
return Christmas day. 


* Snow: most mountain locations will receive some snow. The heaviest 
mountain snow look to be along the Cascade crest and Idaho 
Panhandle where 6-12 inches will be possible. Confidence is 
moderate to high but actual snow levels will fluctuate some so 
particular accumulations at any level below 6000 feet carry 
moderate to low confidence. A few inches of snow will be 
possible in the valleys of northeastern Washington and northern Idaho 
including Bonners Ferry, Sandpoint, Metaline Falls, and Ione. 
Confidence is low at this time due to uncertainty with the 
timing of rising snow levels. 2-4 inches will be possible in the 
blue mtns, Camas Prairie, and benches surrounding the central 
Panhandle mtns of Idaho Wednesday night into Thursday morning 
following the transition from rain to snow. This includes 
locations like Anatone, Winchester, Nez Perce, Deary, and Santa 
to name a few. Confidence is moderate for at least an inch but 
lower for additional accumulations due to the timing of the 
changeover. Trace to one inch will be possible in the valleys 
east of a line from Republic to Pomeroy with the exception of 
the already mentioned locations. Best chances for any 
accumulations will be above 2000 feet but this also carries low 
confidence with snow levels falling as precipitation ends. 


* Mountain passes: snow is likely to impact mountain passes along 
I-90, Hwy 2, and Hwy 20 starting Tuesday night and continue 
through Wednesday. For additional travel information: click the 
seasonal links over the map on our home Page or visit the Washington or 
Idaho dot sites. 


Snoqualmie: will start off as rain Tuesday evening but should switch 
to snow by early Wednesday morning. Amounts could be light to 
moderate. 


Stevens pass: will be a mix of wet snow and rain Tuesday evening but 
should quickly switch over to snow overnight and remain snow on 
Wednesday. Amounts could be moderate. 


Lookout pass: will start off as snow Tuesday night, may briefly mix 
with rain or become heavy wet snow overnight, then become all snow 
for Wednesday. Amounts could be heavy. 


Sherman pass: snow Tuesday night into Wednesday morning then tapering 
off through the day. Amounts will not be heavy. 


* Confidence levels: large changes are possible with the storm if 
model trends switch toward the GFS/Canadian. Consequently, 
confidence is moderate to low. Confidence is moderate to high 
for mountain snow, and the threat (lack of) for significant 
valley accumulations. If model trends go toward the 
GFS/Canadian, winds will be stronger, the precipitation will be 
slower to traverse the region, and snow levels will be higher. 
/Sb 


Thursday night to sunday: seasonably cold conditions and a few 
opportunities for snow mark this period with the region in a 
northwest flow. Thursday night into Friday one disturbance exits 
and a shortwave ridge builds in. Snow shower chances will linger 
across southeast Washington through the Idaho Panhandle mountains in the 
northwest flow, but overall precipitation amounts look light. The 
rest of the inland northwest is forecast to be dry. Look for some low 
clouds, and maybe some patchy fog, across the eastern third of Washington 
and north Idaho with the low level southwest flow and lingering bl 
moisture. Sometime between Friday night and Sunday models bring 
the next frontal wave and precipitation chances in. There are 
disagreements over the timing. The GFS/Gem/dgex bring the feature 
in Friday night and saturday; the European model (ecmwf) holds it off until 
Saturday night into Sunday. Some favor is given to the quicker 
solutions, which exhibit some agreement and run-to-run 
consistency. The ECMWF, on the other hand, has exhibited wider 
swings. Overall look for precipitation chances throughout next 
weekend, which some of the broader chances on Saturday and 
Saturday night. /J. Cote' 






&& 


Aviation... 
18z tafs: overall a fast westerly flow will dominate the region 
for the next 24 hours. This will create dense upslope showers of 
rain and snow mainly over the Cascade crest with some of these showers 
reaching the keat taf site between 18z and 00z. Otherwise the 
klws taf site will have the best chance of occasional showers this 
afternoon. All other taf sites will be generally dry but with 
breezy and gusty southwest winds. VFR conditions are expected to 
prevail at all taf sites except a small chance of brief MVFR 
conditions at keat this afternoon. Overnight tonight as winds die 
down a moist boundary layer may promote IFR or low MVFR stratus 
ceilings at the kgeg area taf sites. /Mjf
