Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Spokane Washington 452 am PDT Tuesday may 26 2015 Synopsis... a slow moving low pressure system will bring scattered afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms to the inland northwest through Wednesday. Locally heavy downpours, frequent lightning, and small hail will be possible the next several days. Low pressure will gradually depart by Thursday, bringing a decrease in precipitation chances, but chances may increase again by early next week across the region. Temperatures warm back above normal from Wednesday into the end of the week, with highs pushing into 80s Thursday Onward. && Discussion... ..slow moving thunderstorms to produce periods of very heavy rain at times today... Today and wednesday: satellite imagery at 2:00 am shows the upper level low pressure system centered right over Deer Park. Much of the region east of the Cascade mtns has at least some weak mid level instability that is fueling the overnight shower activity. This instability is a little bit better over the southeast portion of the region with some isolated thunderstorms popping up from the Washington Palouse over the central Panhandle mtns and points southward. I expect a chance for thunderstorms through the rest of the early morning hours over these same areas. The focus will then shift a bit to a deep fetch of moisture wrapping around the upper level low. Water vapor satellite shows good enhancement extending from southwest Montana up into southern British Columbia. The trend through the rest of this morning is for this moisture to wrap around into north central Washington. The NAM model solution shows a strip of moderate to heavy rainfall extending across southern British Columbia and curling into the east slopes of the northern Cascades with this fetch of moisture. It would indicate widespread rainfall amounts of around a quarter to a half of an inch over a 3 hour period. It is conceivable that localized higher rainfall rates are possible due to steep mid level lapse rates resulting in convective enhancement. Higher resolution models would agree with the potential for some heavy rainfall entering the northern Cascades as the hrrr, WRF-nmm and WRF-arw models agree with this potential. The GFS and European model (ecmwf) show lighter rainfall amounts, but it is difficult to discount the higher resolution model depiction for this morning. This will be a concern for potential flooding related impacts; most notably debris flows or mud slides in steep terrain or on recent burn scars such as on the Carlton complex. Confidence is not high enough at this time to issue a highlight, but this situation will definitely be monitored through the morning hours. Much of the region will see an increasing shower and thunderstorm threat late this morning into the afternoon. The focus will once again reside mostly across the northern portion of the forecast area and over the Cascade mtns where the higher moisture flux will be. The potential for flash flooding and debris flows will increase as this convection gets going. This will be especially so over the mountains in steep terrain and over recent burn scars from the 2013 and 2014 fire seasons. Not only are thunderstorms expected to produce periods of very heavy rainfall, but storm motion will be slow. The upper level low will begin to pull away to the southeast Tuesday night. This will result in a decreasing shower trend into Wednesday, but much of the higher elevations will see a good chance for convection in the afternoon as the atmosphere remains unstable. The flash flood threat will be lower on Wednesday compared to today. Temperatures will rebound on Wednesday as well, especially over the western portion of the region where temperatures in the mid 70s and 80s are expected to return. /Svh Wednesday night through Sunday...one upper level moves out of the region on Wednesday with another poised to drop into b.C. And track east north of the border Wednesday through Saturday or early Sunday. Meanwhile another deep low pressure system will spin out near 150w without much movement. This will put the region in a northwest-northeast flow Wednesday night and Thursday before becoming mainly southwest to westerly through the weekend. Numerous weak waves will move through this flow pattern. Model guidance is pretty consistent showing afternoon and evening instability due to surface heating just about every day. Combine this with these waves and late day showers and thunderstorms have been kept in the forecast mainly tied to the higher terrain outside of the basin. Hard to pin down specifics but the Palouse...West Plains and the Spokane-Coeur D'Alene corridor at times. Normally there would be a bit of drying with the this pattern change but the models are hanging on to pretty deep moisture with pwats remaining well above normal. There is not really anything to push this convection so the biggest concern will be slow moving thunderstorms dropping a lot of rain in a short period time, so expect a good chance for additional flood advisories through the week. Temperatures will increase into the low 80s to low 90s through Sunday which will be well above normal for this time of the year. Sunday night through Tuesday the low that has been hanging out in the eastern Pacific will begin to move east towards the coast. The models, as usual are having some timing differences but just about all the ensemble means show a low moving from off the or/cal coast and track it northeast through the Pacific/northwest through this time period. This is another good and wet shower/thunderstorm pattern for the region. Slightly higher pops and cooler temperatures were put into the forecast for both Monday and Tuesday. Tobin && Aviation... 12z tafs: an upper level low pressure system will circulate over the Spokane area today and then slowly drift south toward kpuw in the evening. This will result in widespread showers across the region with most of the shower activity taking place this afternoon. Thunderstorms will also be a possibility at all taf sites, but instability is marginal enough that confidence is lacking that any one taf site will see a thunderstorm develop. Thunderstorms will be capable of producing very heavy rainfall and pea sized hail. This would result in a temporary reduction of vis into the MVFR category. An abundance of moisture today will result in low level cloud cover, but confidence is not high enough to have cigs below VFR in the tafs; however, low clouds will likely result in mountain obscurations. /Svh && Preliminary point temps/pops...
