Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Spokane Washington 238 PM PDT Friday may 22 2015 Synopsis... the Memorial Day weekend is expected to be warmer than average, with afternoon temperatures in the 70s and 80s. Look for scattered showers and thunderstorms this weekend into next week. Some thunderstorms will be capable of producing heavy downpours and frequent lightning. && Discussion... Tonight: we'll be dealing with short-segment lines of thunderstorms moving west off the higher terrain of north Idaho and into Spokane and the Palouse. The other area of concern is the potential for flash flooding/debris flows on recent 2013-2014 burn scars. So far most of these scars have been missed by the heaviest rain rates in the Cascades. The devels Elbow complex south of Republic has, so far, received the most direct hit...but calls to local authorities have yielded no reports of debris flows. The cape/shear combo supports heavy downpours and small hail into this evening with any thunderstorms. We'll be doing nowcasts, facebook posts and twitter updates when time allows.Bz Saturday through monday: models are in pretty good agreement of where to track the upper level low that is moving down British Columbia and into the inland northwest this weekend. The low now doesn't push into Washington until Sunday evening/Monday morning. Until then...northeasterly flow into the northern Idaho Panhandle and northeast Washington will keep conditions dry with mostly clear skies. The main concern for showers and thunderstorms will continue to remain across extreme southeast WA, the central Idaho Panhandle and along the Cascades. Each afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms will develop and then wane with the setting sun in the evening. Isolated showers is possible through the overnight and early morning hours for the aforementioned areas. Given we are expecting less shower activity and clouds Saturday and early Sunday, have increased Max temps about 1-3 degrees. Sunday night/Monday the upper low will move into Washington. There are some model differences of where the low GOES during the day on Monday. Nevertheless the chance of widespread rain will increase. Monday looks to be the 'crummiest' day of the Holiday weekend. Have lowered Max temps a few degrees, as we looked to be the outlier compared to other forecast models. /Nisbet Monday night through friday: the inland northwest remains unsettled with some threat of showers and thunderstorms each day. Most models keep the region in a weak flow pattern with a mid-level low bobbling about the northwest United States at least through Wednesday. Thereafter models diverge, either holding the low near the northern rockies or showing a transition to a west-southwest flow with a low migrating down the British Columbia coast. Either way instability blossoms each afternoon, in the form of expanding cape. Precisely how much synoptic forcing there is and where it will lay will come into more focus as models come into better agreement. But for now look for a threat of showers and thunderstorms expanding each afternoon, then dissipating but not entirely ending for the night and morning hours. The threat will be best throughout the region through Wednesday. Thereafter there is some suggestion that the threat will retreat away from deeper Columbia Basin toward Thursday and Friday. Any of these showers/T-storms may contain the typical brief heavy rain and perhaps some small hail and lightning, but given the more convective nature of the system none of this is a definite for any one location. /J. Cote' && Aviation... 18z tafs: with showers and isolated thunder now beginning to develop over ern WA and north Idaho, we'll trend steadily toward an increasing areal coverage and intensity of thunderstorms. The main threats will be heavy downpours and small hail. Gusty outflow winds are not out of the question...around 30 kts. All storms will move nearly due west. The main taf sites affected will be klws, kpuw, kmwh, and keat. Though the current tafs show VFR wx, it's likely that the localized heavy downpours will not only lower ceilings close to MVFR, but will also restrict vsbys.
