Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Spokane Washington 1116 am PDT Sat Apr 18 2015 Synopsis... a weak cold front has moved through the region overnight and will produce slightly cooler temperatures and some breezy winds for the weekend. The weather will remain dry however. Temperatures will warm next week with Tuesday being the warmest day. Following this warm and dry period, expected much cooler and showery conditions for the remainder of the week. && Discussion... today and tonight...dry and breezy conditions will prevail today in the Post frontal air mass. Gusty northerly winds will be channeled down the northern valleys and into the Waterville Plateau and portions of the Columbia Basin this morning before diminishing later this afternoon. The surface pressure gradient will relax as surface high pressure rebuilds over the region. Last nights passing cold front brought little moisture to the forecast area so relative humidity this afternoon will dip into the teens across most of the northern valleys and into the basin. There is some concern that the elevated winds will overlap the low rhs briefly this afternoon for the Okanogan Valley, Waterville Plateau and portions of the Upper Basin. Confidence is low since by the time rhs hit minimums for the day, upslope southerly flow will be at odds with the northerly synoptic flow, resulting in lower wind speeds. After sunset, winds will diminish further and rhs will start to recover. Temperatures today will be a bit cooler than Friday but still above seasonal normals. Overnight temperatures will also remain on the mild side. /Kelch Sunday through Sat...upper short-wave ridging over a northward- surging thermal ridge Sunday through tues will help to produce well above normal high temperatures in the upper 60s and 70s for most towns. Following this is the most uncertain part of the fcst as an approaching north-south shearing upper trough reaches the pac NW coast Wed...then moves inland the rest of the work week. Again...there are still big enough inconsistencies in timing, position and evolution of the slow-moving frontal boundary model guidance has moving over ern WA and north Idaho that the most prudent approach was to not make big changes to the fcst, but simply trend toward a wetter and cooler scenario...again...starting late tues nt and Wed. The biggest difference between the GFS and the somewhat more preferred European model (ecmwf) (or rather the ensemble mean), is that all of ern WA and north Idaho is under the threat of widespread pcpn with the slower and more sheared character and track of the frontal system across the region. The GFS is much drier across the upper Columbia Basin, which is not preferred. The best agreement is that the NE WA mtns and the Idaho Panhandle will still see the most pcpn... roughly around one half inch by Sat. Snow levels will remain high enough to not pose a threat to passes. Thunder is not out of the question tues nt through Sat for all zones. Bz && Aviation... 18z tafs: mostly clear skies and good visibilities will prevail at the airports in eastern Washington and north Idaho today and tomorrow. Strong upper level high pressure will be the predominant weather feature the next couple of days. A northerly pressure gradient will persist through the afternoon and weaken this evening leading to light and variable winds overnight. /Gkoch && Preliminary point temps/pops...
