Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Air Quality Alert  Statement as of 10:57 am PDT on August 30, 2015


... Air quality alert in effect until further notice...

An air quality alert has been issued by the following agencies:

Washington department of ecology in Spokane
Idaho department of environmental quality in Lewiston
Washington department of ecology in Yakima
Idaho department of environmental quality in Coeur D'Alene
Nez Perce tribe
Colville confederated tribes
Spokane tribe
kalispel Indian community
Coeur D'Alene tribe
Spokane regional clean air agency
Kootenai tribe of Idaho

Air quality across the region has improved with the wind and rain
from weather systems this weekend. Wildfires continue to burn
across the region and may produce enough smoke for air quality to
diminish into the moderate to unhealthy category at times through
Monday morning. A coordination call with air quality agencies will
be conducted Monday morning to determine what areas, if any, can
be removed from the air quality alert for next week.

Precautions to be taken for areas experiencing increased smoke and
reduced air quality include:

*everyone should avoid heavy work or exercise outdoors when the
air quality index reaches unhealthy levels.

*Older adults, small children, and those with respiratory
conditions or heart disease may be more sensitive to poor air
quality and should stay indoors and avoid heavy work when air
quality reaches unhealthy levels.

*Drink plenty of water. Staying hydrated helps dilute phlegm in
the respiratory tract, making it easier to cough out smoke
particles. Plan on coughing; it is nature's way of clearing your
lungs. Avoid caffeine products, sugary drinks and alcohol because
they have dehydrating effects.

*Stay cool when the weather is warm. Run your air conditioner to
recirculate air. Turn The Fan blower on manually so it
continuously filters the air in your home.

*If working outside, use a dust mask... n95 or n100. If a dusk mask
is not available, cover your nose and mouth with a damp
handkerchief.

This air quality alert will be reevaluated by Monday at noon.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
213 am PDT Monday Aug 31 2015 


Synopsis... 
a cool, occasionally breezy and showery weather pattern is 
expected through the week with the inland northwest laying close 
to the polar storm track. 


&& 


Discussion... 


Today through Tuesday...longwave trof lingers over the area 
through this forecast interval and beyond which allows for 
shortwaves running through it to maintain their forcing and 
moisture feeds thus pops through most of this interval run quite 
high along the Cascade crest and near the Canadian border 
depicting such activity. The 0-6km above ground level average winds from the 
models i've looked at this morning suggest convection should move 
to the northeast at 30 to 35 mph through this time period which is 
fast enough to keep from having a high rainfall rate cell sit in 
one place for too long so for locations east of the Cascade crest 
I still see minimal signs for anything beyond very isolated and 
localized debris flow problems on burn scars if they occur at all. 
Given the trof solution with some convection and associated cloud 
cover forecast daytime high temperatures should run on the cool 
side of normal while overnight lows will stay closer to normal but 
may lie slightly on the cool side as well. This pattern continues 
to favor winds blowing out from the southwest but with slightly 
less intensity as they did yesterday (sunday). Of additional note 
is a mention of patchy valley and lowland fog in some locations 
due to sundays abundant rainfall in some spots, this is in 
addition to the persistent mention of smoke from area fires. 
/Pelatti 


Wednesday through Thursday...model agreement is good and 
consistent over multiple runs in depicting an unsettled and 
continued troffy pattern over the region. High confidence exists 
for a cooler than normal...showery and breezy regime over the 
forecast area. Wednesday will feature another cold front passage 
with elevated breezy to windy conditions with gust potential in 
the 30 mph range over much of the exposed terrain of the area. 
Not as bad as last Saturday but none-the-less probably the 
breeziest day of the extended period. Showers with this front may 
bring another tenth or two of an inch of rain to many locations 
with a small chance of thunderstorms across the northern 
mountains. 


Friday through Sunday...models consensus diverges somewhat 
with the latest ec dropping a strong cold closed low right into 
the forecast area with a possible stratiform rain bearing 
deformation region wrapping around it...which would argue for a 
significant amount of much needed rain for much of the area. The 
GFS also shows a trough passage but less wet and aggressive 
suggesting a decent chance of showers on Friday but a general 
drying trend Saturday and Sunday. So forecast confidence is 
reasonably high for another cool and unsettled day Friday with the 
potential for garden variety thunderstorms over much of the region 
but confidence deteriorates sharply for the later periods of the 
forecast. /Fugazzi 


&& 


Aviation... 
06z tafs: showers have ended across eastern Washington and north Idaho this 
evening but precipitation will continue for the Cascade crest 
tonight. Low level moisture from recent rainfall and light 
upslope flow may allow MVFR ceilings in low stratus to form 
between around 11z to 15z...affecting kgeg/ksff/kcoe but 
confidence is only fair. The next weather system will bring 
showers along the international border Monday but the taf sites 
should remain dry. Winds may become gusty during the afternoon 
hours but will diminish again after sunset. /Ek
