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. /Pelatti && Preliminary point temps/pops...
