NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
646 am PDT sun Aug 2 2015 


Synopsis.... 
another hot and smokey day will be on tap today with triple digit 
heat over much of central and southeast Washington. The ongoing 
drought combined with high heat and low humidity will contribute 
to high fire danger throughout the inland northwest. Temperatures 
on Monday should be a few degrees cooler with an increase in 
clouds. Cooler, more seasonal temperatures and locally breezy 
winds are expected Tuesday through Friday following the arrival 
of a cold front. 


&& 


Discussion... 
a quick update this morning to increase the amount of smoke across 
northeast Washington and north Idaho this morning as seen on the 
visible satellite images. 


Today through Monday night: expect one more hot and dry day 
today, then expect conditions to gradually moisten up and cool 
slightly. The ridge of high pressure will stay firm over the 
inland northwest today as the surface trough spans from the 
Columbia Basin to north Idaho. This ridge is expected to shift 
east tonight into Monday as an upper trough of low pressure swings 
down across b.C. This will enhance a moist southwest flow and 
advect moisture and clouds into the region. 


Temperatures: only a degree or two change in temperatures is 
expected today as low levels remain warm. It will be another hot 
and unstable day. This could make current wildfire more active 
once again. Could see a few near record highs, today in Moses 
Lake, plain, Stehekin and Omak. The heat advisory will continue 
for another day in the lc valley as daytime temperatures top out 
from 93 to 103. Monday's temperatures will cool a few more degrees 
with mainly 90s expected. 


Winds/humidity: downslope Cascade Gap winds will be another 
concern today especially with the extremely dry humidity levels, 
from the upper single digits to mid teens. Wind speeds will 
lighten up this morning and could see some terrain driven 
upslope/up valley winds in sheltered valleys. Surface pressure 
gradients are expected to tighten to about 4-5 mb this afternoon 
and should see a repeat of gusty gap winds into the evening across 
the Cascade valleys, but speeds don't look to be as strong as 
those on Saturday. Some local afternoon gusts of 15 mph are also 
possible across the Columbia Basin as the dry and unstable 
atmosphere mixes. Northwest to westerly winds will prevail for 
much of the day on Monday although humidity values will gradually 
increase. 


Clouds/weather: areas of smoke will be a concern this morning and 
into the afternoon as the wildfires remain active. The Wolverine 
fire near Lake Chelan will be the main culprit although other 
smaller fires especially near the Canadian border will add to the 
smokey haze. High clouds will be on the increase today as cirrus 
rotates in from the southwest. This moisture is associated with a 
monsoonal fetch coming up from California. This moisture will 
increase tonight especially across the Cascades and could squeeze 
a few sprinkles. A weak disturbance in the moist southwest flow 
will ripple up the Cascades Monday morning with a small chance of 
elevated convection and more sprinkles. As the upper trough drops 
across b.C., This will push the disturbance and moisture band 
across the inland northwest Monday afternoon and evening. 
Instability will remain and this could generate more high based 
thunderstorms across northeast Washington and north Idaho. There 
looks to be a better chance of measurable precipitation across 
north Idaho late Monday night, albeit it will still be light. 
/Rfox. 


Tuesday and wednesday: a 500mb low will reside over British 
Columbia Tuesday and Wednesday. The evening runs of the GFS and 
European model (ecmwf) are in decent agreement that the majority of eastern 
Washington and north Idaho will be under the influence of dry 
westerly flow Tuesday and Wednesday. However, there may be enough 
cool cyclonic flow aloft along the Canadian border to allow the 
formation of widely scattered showers and thunderstorms Tuesday 
and Wednesday. A 20-30 percent chance for showers and 
thunderstorms has also been retained for the Idaho Panhandle 
mountains along the Montana border Tuesday, but the evening models 
have trended quicker pushing moisture out of the Panhandle. If 
this trend continues, Tuesday will be a dry day for most of the 
Panhandle. Tuesday and Wednesday look breezy with sustained 10 to 
15 mph common across the basin, Palouse and Spokane area. Gusts to 
20 mph will be likely in the afternoon with localized gusts in the 
25 to 30 mph range through the cascasde gaps during the early 
evening hours. Even though temperatures will be trending down 
Tuesday and Wednesday, wind and low relative humidity levels could 
be a concern given the exceedingly dry conditions following the 
heat of the weekend. 


Thursday through saturday: it is hard to get too excited about 
chances for showers Thursday through Saturday. (Though....some of 
US will be excited about the cooler, more seasonal temperatures.) 
With the departure of the 500mb low out of British Columbia 
Thursday night, the Pacific northwest will be under a flat 
westerly flow Thursday and Friday. The persistent on-shore flow 
should bring a gradual increase in our surface dewpoints Thursday 
through Saturday, but probably not enough to produce much 
instability. There is a hint of a weak shorwave trough on 
Saturday, so a 20 percent chance of mountain showers and 
thunderstorms enters ther forecast Saturday afternoon. /Gkoch

Aviation... 
12z tafs: areas of smoke will be a concern for some of the taf 
sites in the next 24 hours, especially for kmwh where the 
norther winds advect LCL MVFR conditions over the site. Expect 
some improvement this afternoon with daytime mixing and westerly 
winds. Otherwise smoke will be either high level or cause local 
MVFR vsbys. Mid and high level clouds will increase through the 
period. Winds should remain under 10kt this afternoon but local 
higher gusts are possible. Downslope gap winds will increase after 
02z especially in keat where speeds will reach around 14kt. /Rfox.
