NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
402 am PST Monday Mar 2 2015 


Synopsis... 
a weak weather system will pass through the region today with the 
potential for light snow mainly for the Idaho Panhandle, along 
with breezy conditions across much of the region this afternoon and 
tonight. Much colder air moves in behind this system, with 
temperatures well below average for the middle of the week. A dry 
period, with moderating temperature will follow for the end of the 
week. 




&& 


Discussion... 
for today and this evening...satellite imagery is matching up 
with model guidance showing a vigorous upper level low dropping 
south along the Oregon coast this morning. Some wrap around 
moisture should make it east of the Cascades this morning to 
support some light snow near the north Cascade crest. Snow 
accumulations will be very light. 


Satellite imagery is also showing the second advertised low 
dropping south through Alberta and will give our eastern zones a 
glancing blow from late this morning through this evening. Snow 
showers should be confined to east of a line from about Colville 
to Walla Walla...with the focus over the Panhandle mountains. 
Plenty of dynamical lift to work with, but this disturbance is 
lacking in any deep moisture. As such while pops are fairly high 
through the afternoon and early evening, precipitation amounts are 
on the lighter side. Precipitation will be as snow down to the 
valley floor. Amounts will vary from a trace to a couple of 
hundredths for the lower elevations around Colville...Deer 
Park...Spokane Metro and Pullman. Around an inch for the northeast 
mountains of Washington. The north and central Panhandle mountains 
may see anywhere from 2-6 inches. 


The northerly flow will result in much cooler air moving into 
the region down north-south valleys. The cold air advection 
combined with a tightening of the surface pressure gradient, and 
30-35kt 850mb winds will increase the winds down the Okanogan 
Valley and spilling into the Waterville Plateau and the Columbia 
Basin. The Purcell Trench is somewhat protected form this flow but 
should still see increase north-northeast winds later this 
afternoon and early this evening. Winds will increase by mid day 
with sustained winds of 20-30 mph with gusts 30-35 mph through the 
afternoon, before decreasing an hour or two after sunset. For the 
Purcell Trench and spilling into the Spokane-Coeur D'Alene 
corridor and into the Palouse north-northeast winds around 20 mph 
with gusts 25-30 mph will be possible. This will result in a very 
brisk/raw afternoon for the forecast area. 


Tonight through Tuesday night...the upper level low will push east 
and high pressure will build out around 130-135w. This will put 
the forecast area in a dry northwest to northerly flow. Dry air 
will push into the region for a drying trend. Some mid level 
clouds will linger over the Panhandle mountains, otherwise mostly 
sunny conditions. Temperatures will cool considerably. Once the 
winds die down this evening and with clearing skies there should 
be ample radiational cooling. Minimum temperatures will drop into 
the low teens to low 20s both Tuesday and Wednesday morning...with 
a few single digits possible for some of our frost-pockets. Max 
temperatures will struggle to rise only into the mid 30s to lower 
40s. Which is will be 8-10 degrees below normal. Tobin 


Wednesday through Thursday night...a weak impulse will track 
across the region Wednesday but will likely result in just some 
mid to high clouds. Northerly flow will keep temperatures below 
seasonal normals for one more day before starting a slow climb to 
more seasonal levels as the ridge axis moves toward the coast. 
Cold northerly flow will be replaced by a northwest trajectory 
that will bring more of a marine influence to the air mass. This 
will allow temperatures to start the warming trend with an 
increase of about 5 to 7 degrees expected Thursday and again 
Thursday night. 


Friday through Sunday...medium range models continue to be at odds 
concerning a shortwave trough affecting the area Friday into 
Friday night. The latest European model (ecmwf) guidance continues to bring this 
feature southeast across much of the forecast area while the GFS 
remains firm in keeping it well to our northeast. No changes made 
to this portion of the forecast until models settle on a solution. 
For now, low end pops will remain over the higher terrain. 
Temperatures will moderate as the synoptic flow shifts from 
northerly to more westerly. /Kelch

Aviation... 
12z tafs: a weather disturbance will drop south through the 
northeast portion of the forecast area this afternoon and result 
in a good chance for -shsn over the north and central Idaho 
Panhandle. Showers will be possible as far west as kgeg-kcoe 
corridor and at kpuw. The best chance by far will be at kcoe. Cigs 
will drop to bkn050-060 after 20z but remain VFR through the 
forecast period. Kcoe may see brief MVFR cigs/vsby with any 
heavier -shsn. Further to the south and east the remainder of the 
taf sites will remain VFR. Winds will increase at kmwh/keat after 
20z with sustained northerly winds 18-20kts and gusts 26-30kts 
through 06z. Kgeg-kcoe may see gusts as high 15-20kts out of the 
northeast between 21z-03z. Tobin
