NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
1056 am PDT Wednesday Jul 23 2014 


Synopsis... 
a strong storm system will move through the region today, bringing 
the potential for thunderstorms and heavy rain. Cool and windy 
weather is expected for Thursday. Temperatures will rebound by the 
weekend and be accompanied by dry conditions. Hot weather will 
return to the area on Sunday and early next week. 




&& 


Discussion... 
quick update for today: main message is the threat for strong to 
severe storms across the eastern third of Washington and nrn Idaho while 
heavy rains brings a risk for flash flooding/mudslides over burn 
scars in the Cascades. Storm Prediction Center has spread the slight risk into much of 
eastern Washington and nrn Idaho and a watch is not out of the question. 
Areas of ern Washington and nrn Idaho are experiencing sunny skies at this 
hour which is going to allow the environment to reach potential 
instability parameters via the model guidance. A much tougher call 
for central Washington given the pronounced cloudiness. Thunder is still 
likely but whether instability can incr enough to support severe 
storms is not as promising. 


Meanwhile, embedded vort maximums tracking ahead of the main front 
is enhancing convection along and mainly west of the Cascade 
crest with very impressive rates of upwards of 0.50"/hour under 
the strongest cores. One wave passing through southern Chelan 
County at this hour and peeling off to the N/NW. Activity with 
this cluster is not as intense as observed with cores upstream 
with 1 hour amounts generally in the 0.05-0.15" range, but 
isolated lightning strikes have been observed and the potential 
for strengthening is there given the instability noted on forecast 
soundings and how intense some of the convection was in seattle's 
area this morning. Things are likely to shift east over the 
course of the next 1-3 hours as the upper-low comes east and 
spreads the training moisture and rain into the east slopes. Flash 
flood watches in effect. /Sb 


&& 


Aviation... 
18z tafs: low pressure off the coast will shift move inland over 
the next 24 hours. Widespread rain...heavy at times will be near 
keat with embedded lightning strikes. Stronger storms expected to 
develop in the basin and track east toward the Washington/Idaho border arnd 
00z bringing the potential for damaging winds, hail, and heavy 
downpours. Gusty winds will follow in the wake of cold front 
passage late afternoon and into the overnight periods. Lingering 
showers over the northern mountains for Thursday but all taf sites 
dry out overnight. /Sb
