Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
440 am PDT Wednesday Apr 23 2014 


Synopsis... 
occasional precipitation chances, breezy conditions and relatively 
cool temperatures dominate the weather pattern. Passing rain and 
snow chances Wednesday are followed by steadier rain chances late 
Wednesday night into Thursday, followed by a threat of more 
scattered showers, and perhaps some thunder, Thursday afternoon. 
Showers will remain a threat into the weekend, before a relative 
lull comes for the start of the new work week. 


&& 


Discussion... 
today and tonight: a threat of rain and snow showers returns 
to the inland northwest today, while steadier rain develops late tonight. 
This morning a tight 500mb shortwave was entering the Cascades, 
with weak 850-700mb Theta-E ridge leading it into central and 
eastern Washington and north Idaho. That latter feature will provide focus 
for the moisture and increasing precipitation across the Cascade 
crest and the Okanogan to upper Columbia Basin, spreading into the 
eastern third of Washington and north Idaho this morning. There is some 
disagreement in how quickly precipitation develops or how 
widespread it will actually be. The hrrr actually shows very 
little in that way of significant precipitation; however the 
GFS/NAM/ec/sref are more generous. At 930z clouds were starting 
to thicken near the Cascades and expand east, while a few light 
radar returns were developing east of Othello. I don't see any 
evidence that anything is actually reaching the ground at this 
time, but leaning toward the more dominant model solutions suggest 
this will change. So I gradually increase pops to likely through 
the morning, especially across southeast Washington to the central 
Panhandle. 


For late this morning to early afternoon the 500mb shortwave 
comes on the heels of the 850/700mb wave, before shifting into 
Montana in the late afternoon. With 500mb temperatures in the core 
of this disturbance in the -25 to -31 c range and a swath of 
100-200 j/kg of cape and marginally negative Li values, this will 
mean a continued shower threat across the eastern third of of Washington 
and north Idaho this afternoon, before dissipating in coverage by 
early evening. I included a slight chance of thunder toward the 
northeast mountains, but even then I think any thunder that 
develops would be more isolated in nature, if any develops at all. 


Looking at current wet-bulb zero heights and regional temperatures, 
the precipitation will have a modest opportunity to fall as snow 
across a large portion of the region, save for the lower Palouse 
to the deeper Columbia Basin and the l-c valley. The threat for 
more than an inch of snow, however, will remains toward the 
Cascades and the Panhandle mountains, and perhaps toward the 
higher Idaho Palouse. The threat for accumulating snow outside of 
the mountains will also be limited to early in the day. However 
the convective or unstable nature of the atmosphere under the 
trough will mean the potential for a rain/snow/graupel/small hail 
mix with any showers that occur into the afternoon. 


Late tonight into Thursday morning a warm front comes in from the 
southwest. This will shift the region to more stable regime. 
Strengthening isentropic ascent and subtropical moisture plume 
come the warm front as the night wares on. Pwats rise to between 
0.50 to 0.75 inches (or ~150-200% of normal). This favors another 
swath of precipitation, enveloping much of the region from the 
Columbia Basin toward the northern mountains between 04z-11z (or 
~9 PM to 4 am). I increased precipitation chances to likely for a 
large portion of the region going past 06z. By this time the 
milder air surges in, pushing wet-bulb zero heights and snow 
levels up toward 3500-4000 feet around the mountains of northeast 
Washington and north Idaho and to around 4500 to 5500 feet elsewhere. In 
other words the next system looks to be more of a valley rain and 
High Mountain snow event. /J. Cote' 


Thursday through Friday...chances are very good that the recent 
spurt of wet weather will continue through this period as well. 
The latest water vapor and shows a developing baroclinic band 
near 150w with a nice tap into sub-tropical moisture per the 
blended precipitable water product. Models in very good agreement 
that this atmospheric river will slide into SW Washington 
Wednesday night and gradually spread northeast through Thursday 
morning in the form of a warm front. Precipitation will likely 
impact most locations...including the Lee of the Cascades due to 
moderate isentropic ascent resultant of the mid-level southwest 
winds. Most of the stratiform precipitation will fall in the 
morning...as the atmospheric river is expected to shift east of 
the region by afternoon. Before it shifts east most of the region 
will see measurable rainfall with amounts ranging from .20 to .40 
inches over most valley locations...with heavier amounts over the 
mountains of north Idaho and the Cascade crest. This bout of rain 
will be followed by a weak negatively tilted trough during the 
afternoon...somewhat similar to yesterday. Whether or not the 
moisture from the morning rain can combine with afternoon heating 
to produce deep convection and possible thunderstorms is the 
question. Yesterdays window of opportunity was too short to tap 
into the moisture and thus we never saw thunderstorms. The 
Thursday setup isn't ideal but it should be a little better than 
what we saw. Thus we will continue to mention a chance of 
afternoon and early evening thunderstorms. The best chances will 
occur east of a line from Republic to Ritzville. Model instability 
isn't supportive of any strong convection as the cape values are 
too low for strong updrafts. 


The threat of thunder will wane Thursday evening...and most of 
the area will see a brief drying trend...with one exception. The 
upper level trough responsible delivering the atmospheric river 
will shift onto the Washington coast by morning...which is 
expected to send a shortwave trough in from the southwest. All the 
models are showing a similar scenario...with the track of the 
shortwave expected to impact the southeast corner of Washington 
into NC Idaho...due to the proximity of a low-level Theta-E ridge 
axis. Moderate rainfall amounts will be possible in this region 
with locations such as Lewiston...Pullman...and the Silver Valley 
seeing the possibility of up to a quarter inch. Across the 
remainder of the forecast area the possibility of significant 
rainfall is considerably lower. That notion will likely continue 
until afternoon at which time the upper level trough will likely 
shift into the Cascades. This should result in diurnally 
developing convection...however lapse rates aren't really all that 
impressive. Most of the convection will likely fire over the 
mountains due to terrain forcing. 


Friday night through Monday...the upper level trough or some 
semblances of it will likely remain fixed over the Pacific 
northwest through this period as well. There are no signs of 
seeing a good fetch of moisture...or strong synoptic forcing at 
least through the weekend. So we are primarily looking at an 
unsettled weather pattern with generally diurnally driven shower 
activity. Most of the convection will fire near the Cascades and 
the Idaho Panhandle. By Monday there is some support for a weak 
shortwave ridge. This should lead to slightly drier weather but 
based on the amplitude of the ridge...we don't want to go 
completely dry. Fx 


Monday night through wednesday: the extended part of the forecast 
which yesterday featured an amplifying ridge, now has gained some 
uncertainty. Most recent GFS model runs now have the ridge sliding 
further to the east over Montana allowing the offshore trough to advect 
an abundance of subtropical moisture into our region leading to 
increased chances for more precipitation. While the GFS has 
trended wetter, the Euro still advertises the ridge remaining 
entrenched right over our area keeping the storm track to the 
west. This would lead to the dry conditions the models were 
showing yesterday. Due to the model uncertainty I did increase 
pops slightly to include the mention of showers for higher 
elevation locations along with the eastern third of Washington and the 
Panhandle. Confidence is not high with this change, but thought it 
would be worthwhile to at least move pops towards climo for the 
time being. Other than pops, not many changes were made to the 
period due to lower confidence. Many factors for this portion of 
the forecast will depend on the verifying model and will have to 
be fine tuned once model agreement is better. Given the models 
right now, the active GFS would bring continued wet conditions 
with below normal temps while Euro would bring above normal temps 
and drier conditions. For the time being we will just have to wait 
and see how the models trend over the next few runs. /Fliehman

Aviation... 
12z tafs: two systems will impact the inland northwest aviation interests 
over the next 24 hours. An unstable upper wave will track across 
East Washington/north Idaho this morning and afternoon, bringing scattered 
showers. Chances will be best over the eastern taf sites (geg to 
Coe and puw/lws). Some light snow may be mixed as well, especially 
in the morning. The afternoon may also bring a few thunderstorms, 
but the best threat will remain north and east of taf sites. Local 
MVFR/isolated IFR cigs are possible with showers, especially in 
the morning. In addition to precipitation, look for breezy 
conditions in the afternoon. The threat of precipitation lulls for 
the late afternoon/early evening, however the next system will 
begin to move in late this evening and overnight in the form of a 
warm front that is expected to lead to steader rain developing 
from the south/southwest, after 03-06z. Local MVFR cigs will be 
possible by this time frame too. /J. Cote'
