Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Spokane Washington 443 am PST Thursday Nov 27 2014 Synopsis... mild and breezy weather is expected Thanksgiving with areas of fog in the morning. Snow levels should rise above the mountain passes. Motorists with plans to travel over the mountain passes should experience good conditions today through Friday afternoon. The arrival of a very cold and windy Arctic front Friday night into Saturday will bring winter driving conditions to the mountain passes and much cooler weather for the weekend. && Discussion... Today through Fri: the biggest changes to the fcst were to decrease the amnt of pcpn for all non-mountain zones, increase the winds, and warm temperatures a bit. Though by far the most eventful part of the fcst will be Fri nt through the weekend as we deal with a significant cold front passage that will produce snow for all elevations, gusty cold north winds and temps as low as the single digits, we have some relatively mild, but windy weather to deal with first. Currently behind a cool frontal passage late yesterday, we're still anticipating sfc winds to increase slowly and help to mix out any dense fog now in the upper Columbia Basin. We've extended the dense fog advsy a few more hours and will be watched carefully. The good news is that temps are above freezing, so very slick roads shouldn't be a big problem on this important Thanksgiving day travel morning. Today and Friday all of ern WA and north ID will be in a mild pre-Arctic cold front air mass, with well- above normal temps. However, this same pattern typically favors very gusty winds. This time it's no different. Most model guidance shows persistent 850mb winds (roughly 5k ft above the sfc) from the southwest at 35-45kt. Expect these winds to begin to increase this morning. Temps will be mild, even low temps for areas that manage to remain coupled with these winds aloft (non- valley sites). Bz Friday night through Sunday...the wet but mild weather pattern will come to an end as an Arctic front slides south across the region bringing much colder and drier air with it. A strong surface low will slide south across eastern Washington and north Idaho Friday night, bringing a good chance of precipitation to the eastern half of the forecast area along with strong gusty southwest winds. Snow levels will start out around 5k ft Friday evening then come crashing down overnight. The bulk of the precip will fall as rain in the valleys. By the time the cold air moves in, the low will be over central Idaho with showers limited to the southeast zones. The Camas Prairie may see some low end advisory snowfall but even this amount is uncertain. On Saturday the exiting low and building high pressure over southern British Columbia will set up a strong surface pressure gradient that will channel northerly winds down the Okanogan Valley and Purcell Trench and into the basin. This pattern shows the potential for wind highlights and will continue to be monitored. Saturday morning temperatures will likely be the high for the day as the frigid air continues to March south across the area. The rest of the weekend will continue the cold and dry trend with lows in the single digits across the northern zones. Valley highs in the 20s will be common. Sunday night through Wednesday...the cold temperatures will start to moderate as northerly winds are replaced by more westerly flow. Model solutions diverge when it comes to moisture over the region. The GFS wants to bring the surface boundary back north as a warm front but the New Run of the European model (ecmwf) brings a shortwave trough across the northeast zones. No big changes made to the extended forecast at this point other than to trend pops toward climo for the end of the forecast period. /Kelch && Aviation... 12z tafs: we've made significant changes to the wind fcst for the Spokane/ c'da and Pullman tafs... increasing the winds speeds significantly especially for kgeg. 12z otx raob and vwp showed 40-50kts 1500-2500ft of the sfc contributing significantly to the rapid mixing at kgeg and simultaneous gusts to 25 kts. These winds should peak this morning, but only decrease slightly during the day. For sites that have not mixed, low level wind shear has been added for the next few hours. As far as the IFR/LIFR ceilings and/or vsby at kmwh and keat... these are expected to become VFR by mid morning.
