NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
1000 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 are 
forecast for the upcoming work week, with some opportunities for 
snow. The next big threat looks to come the southeast half of 
Washington and Idaho later Monday into Tuesday. 




&& 


Discussion... 
evening update: the Arctic front is on the move. The main push of 
colder air is making it into the Cascades and Okanogan, while it 
remains mild over the southeast half of the forecast area. For 
example at last report around 8 PM temperatures were in the mid-20s 
near Oroville, Washington over the northern Okanogan Valley, with north 
winds sustained between 20 and 30 mph; at the same time Lewiston, 
Idaho was at 56 degrees, with winds around that area coming out of 
the southwest at around 15 to 25 mph with gusts to 45 mph. 


So those winds have been blowing down the Okanogan Valley at a 
good clip already, so I went ahead and started the Wind Advisory 
in that area about an hour ago (730 pm). That portion of the Wind 
Advisory also includes the Waterville Plateau, but those winds 
should materialize later (after about 09-12z). 


The other Wind Advisory GOES through midnight (12 am) across the 
upper Columbia Basin east into the Spokane area and Palouse and 
l-c valley, as well as the Coeur D'Alene area (which I added at 
730 PM to due to some rather strong winds reported at the surface 
and indicated by radar aloft). Newest model runs support this 
downward trend. These updates to the Wind Advisory are already on 
the street. I did increase winds down the Purcell Trench tonight 
into Saturday, as that increasing northerly gradient develops, but 
these really don't appear should increase until after 09-12z). 


The other issue out there is the precipitation. A modest shield 
of rain continues to Rake the eastern third of Washington and north ID, 
especially from the Palouse east into the portions of the central 
Panhandle. All models support this precipitation gradually 
decreasing from the northwest overnight. On the backside of this, 
however, will be some some snow threat. 


The rain changed to snow around the Okanogan Valley, per the ASOS 
at omk, around 5pm and fell for a couple hours. It wasn't being 
sampled well by radar and available web cams in the region did not 
show much. Yet I have no reason to doubt the sensor. So this 
highlights that some snow threat will be coming on the heels of 
the cold front and with the cold core of the upper trough. The 
snow chances will found near the Cascades through the Okanogan 
the remainder of this evening and above about 5-6kft farther east 
and south. However later overnight into Saturday snow levels drop 
toward valley floors. Outside of the mountain the snow is not 
expected to amount to much: a half inch or so over northeast Washington 
and north Idaho and maybe an inch to an inch and a half toward the 
Palouse. More snow is projected about the central Panhandle 
mountains, where a Snow Advisory remains in place through the day 
Saturday (4 am to 4 pm). The northwest flow and unstable upper 
trough will help produce this threat here, while the unstable 
upper trough will bring the light snow threat across the remainder 
of eastern Washington and north Idaho. 


The last thing to mention that some guidance suggests is a 
possible Puget Sound convergence zone in the westerly flow. It is 
mainly the NAM/sref which has this suggestion, which wants to show 
some band of snow developing near the Chelan/Okanogan County 
border overnight (after 09z) and expanding east across northern 
Douglas and Lincoln County through Saturday. Typically a band of 
precipitation associated with the pscz doesn't spread that far 
east, so I suspect there may be some mix of the incoming upper 
trough influencing that depiction. /J. Cote' 


&& 


Aviation... 
06z tafs: an Arctic front drops across the Washington and north Idaho 
tonight, with the trailing upper trough coming through Saturday. 
Look for areas of rain across the eastern taf sites to turn to 
showers and dissipate overnight. The showers may mix with or turn 
to snow before morning. The incoming upper trough will keep the 
threat of flurries or snow showers alive across the eastern taf 
sites through Saturday, before the threat wanes at night. The 
western taf sites (eat/mwh) will see some the potential for a few 
flurries or a brief snow shower and some increase cloud cover 
during the day Saturday too, but the threat appear smaller in that 
region. Winds will remain breezy to windy this evening. The 
overall speeds are projected to decrease after midnight into 
Saturday morning, but will still remain gusty through Saturday 
before abating Saturday night. 


Note: the visible sensor at eat is out of service so amendments to 
visible are not scheduled. A replacement sensor is on order. Service 
may return as early as Saturday, but may not be available until 
the middle of next week. /J. Cote'
