NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
248 am PDT Friday may 29 2015 


Synopsis... 
scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue today. Expect a 
warming trend into the weekend, with highs in the 80s, with a 
lingering threat of mainly mountain showers and thunderstorms. The 
next best chance of showers and thunderstorms arrives by next 
Monday and Tuesday with the potential for some stronger storms 
and the return of cooler temperatures. 




&& 


Discussion... 
today and tonight: the region will be under a moist and unstable 
zonal flow pattern over the next 24 hours with a pair of shortwave 
disturbances passing through the region. The first will move 
through this afternoon and the second overnight. No big changes 
with the air mass is expected today. Dew points continue to remain 
in the mid 40s to low 50s and temperatures will top out in the 
80s. Another day of warm temperatures combined with a mildly juicy 
air mass will once again result in afternoon convection. There 
figures to be a bit more mid to high level cloud cover to start 
out the day compared to yesterday. This may hold down surface 
temperatures a little bit, but models indicated surface based 
CAPES of around 500-1000 j/kg across the northern mtns where the 
best chances of thunderstorms are expected today. There will be 
some shear to work with as well of up to around 25 kts between 0-6 
km that will coincide with these stronger CAPES. Some added lift 
with the weak disturbance moving through is expected to result in 
at least a chance for some isolated stronger thunderstorms to 
develop across the northern mtns this afternoon. Possible hazards 
will include small hail, gusty outflow winds up to around 40 mph, 
and frequent cloud to ground lightning strikes. 


P-wats will continue to run above normal at around 0.80 inches. 
This result in very heavy rain under the stronger storm cells. 
Isolated low land flooding or urban flooding will be possible with 
these storms. There will also be the potential for mud or debris 
flows in steep terrain. The east slopes of the northern Cascades 
will not escape convection this afternoon. This will raise 
concerns for flash flooding or debris flows in and around recent 
burn scars from the 2013 and 2014 fire seasons. The Carlton 
complex and Devils Elbow burn scars will see the best potential 
for heavy rain from thunderstorms. Chances are not as high south 
of Lake Chelan, but thunderstorms will still be possible and I can 
not rule out problems due to flash flooding or debris flows across 
these areas as well. The good news is that there will be at least 
some steering flow this afternoon; it will be weak, but should at 
least result in some movement to the east and northeast instead of 
storms remaining nearly stationary. 


The second weak shortwave disturbance will push through tonight. 
Models show enough mid level instability that I decided to add a 
slight chance for thunderstorms tonight into Saturday morning. 
Nocturnal convection will be possible east of a line from Omak to 
Wenatchee with the best chances expected across the eastern half 
of the forecast area. P-wats look to increase to as high as an 
inch. This would be up around our peak of what is expected for 
late may and would result in very wet showers and thunderstorms 
through the night. /Svh 


Sat through Fri: we still have two main areas of focus. The first 
is the initial warm and potentially thundery conditions in the 
thermal ridge ahead of the mid to late week strong cyclone. The 
second is the return to showery/thundery/cooler wx Tue through 
thur under this cyclone. We have showers (and some isolated 
thunder) in the fcst every afternoon for at least a part of ern 
WA and north Idaho, especially when the upper low translates over the 
region beginning Mon nt. This tues through Fri period will 
resemble closely the wx regime we just went through...with a 
resurgence of showers and thunder every afternoon where it's not 
already showering. There's no way we can get around broad-brushing 
this type of regime given the high level of confidence we have 
that pattern recognition supports the heaviest showers every 
afternoon. Monday will be the big wx day as a surge of high 
Theta-E air (warm/moist) ahead of the ejecting vort Max provides 
at least two major ingredients for an outbreak of potentially 
strong thunderstorms that will expand NE through ern Oregon and 
into north Idaho. Monday will be the best chance of thunder, with 
uncapped cape of 500-750 j/kg combining with only modest 20-30kts 
of deep layer shear. Tues, however, will be a tougher thunder fcst 
as most model guidance brings the low far enough inland that the 
subsidence within the rather wide dry slot shunts the deepest 
instability quickly into wrn Montana.Bz

Aviation...06z tafs: general low pressure with weak weather 
disturbances moving through it keep scattered showers and 
thunderstorms in the aviation area tonight and again tomorrow.
