Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Spokane Washington 443 am PDT Sat Nov 1 2014 Synopsis... a slow moving frontal system will pass through the region over the next 24 hours. Light rain will develop over far eastern Washington and the Idaho Panhandle today. Sunday will be a break period followed by a very moist period on Monday through Wednesday featuring valley rain and High Mountain snow. && Discussion... today and tonight...a deep and highly meridional upper level trough with axis just off the Pacific coast will drift onshore today. The forecast area will be under a deep and moist southerly flow regime ahead of this trough axis. The main trough base dynamic region will eject into the Great Basin and then hook north into Idaho and promoting surface cyclogenesis over Idaho and eventually Montana tonight. The forecast area will be on the edge of the strong dynamic forcing featuring differential vorticity advection and mutually supporting jet divergent regions which will drive the cyclogenesis. The eastern half of the forecast area will be impacted by this forcing and fueled by deep moisture. Radar is already filling in with moderate rain returns from Walla Walla to Sandpoint and points east early this morning. The situation will continue to deteriorate further as the day wears on over these regions...while the western zones will be Manly dry but with thick mid and high clouds for minimal sunshine. Expect a generally wet day featuring intermittent light rain and High Mountain snow over the Idaho Panhandle and extreme eastern Washington with 1/3 to 1/2 inch of rain possible with near 1 inch of precipitation in the mountains. The southerly flow will keep snow levels up around 5000 feet today. Tonight the trough axis will cross the region and allow snow levels to begin lowering. The lingering precipitation over the Idaho Panhandle will become snow above 4000-4500 feet with accumulations possibly reaching early season warning criteria over the high terrain...and the current Winter Storm Watch for the Shoshone County mountains above 4500 feet will continue with the morning forecast package. /Fugazzi Sunday: precipitation wrapping around the backside of an area of low pressure over Montana will rapidly decrease in intensity and wane through the morning and early afternoon as the storm system shifts into the northern plains. A mid-level dry slot will shift into Idaho leading to rapid drying of the dendritic layer and despite the continued upsloping flow and saturated lower levels, precipitation intensity will become light trending from a mix of light mountain snow and valley to rain toward a combination of drizzle and flurries. Snow levels will range between 3800-4000 feet Sunday morning rising near 4500 feet by the late afternoon. Any chance for accumulating snows will likely have to come during the early morning hours when precipitation intensity will be greatest. The remainder of central and ern Washington will generally remain dry with areas of morning fog and stratus giving way to increasing clouds as the next weather system approaches. Sunday night through saturday: the Gulf of Alaska low will dig into the ern pac and direct an atmospheric river at the northwestern US. This will bring several rounds of precipitation, gusty winds, and mild temperatures. Sunday night and Monday will be initial influx of atmospheric moisture and be accompanied by modest westerly flow. This will equate to thickening clouds with spotty light precipitation and quantitative precipitation forecast amounts generally less than a tenth of an inch. The exception will be along the immediate Cascade crest where upwards of a quarter or more will be possible through Monday evening. Snow levels across the northern mountains will start off just shy of 4000 feet Monday morning suggesting any light precipitation before midday could result in a period of light snow on Sherman Pass. Precipitation will increase in coverage and intensity Monday night and Tuesday as subtropical moisture continues to flood inland and a weak frontal system skirts to the northwest. Widespread quantitative precipitation forecast amounts between a tenth and quarter of an inch will be found across the basin (less in the Lee of the Cascades and more eastern basin with the valleys of NE Washington and nrn Idaho looking at closer to amounts between a quarter and half an inch. The Cascade crest will receive over an inch of liquid while the mountains of NE Washington and nrn Idaho should look to receive between 0.75 - 1.00" with local amounts likely to exceed an inch. Snow levels will start off lowest Monday night and continue to climb as the subtropical moisture pours inland. Levels across the northern and eastern mountains will start off 5500-6000 feet increasing 7500 feet by Tuesday evening. In the Cascades, snow levels bounce between 7000-8000 feet and 7000-9000 feet closer to the blue mtns. The passing frontal system will briefly suppress the axis of subtropical moisture toward northern Oregon Tuesday night with westerly flow bringing drying in the Lee of the Cascades, Okanogan Valley, and Okanogan Highlands. Numerous showers will continue across the Cascade crest and mountains east of the basin as winds within the 850-700mb layer blow 25-40kts out of the W/SW. For the middle to end of the week (wednesday - saturday), there is increasing confidence that a longwave trof between 150-160w will begin to swing east and in return...pump heights over the western US. The axis of deeper moisture near the Washington/or border will respond by lifting north ahead of a developing warm front and looks to retreat toward the international border during the Wednesday time-frame. How far north the shield of precipitation retreats carries moderate uncertainty. The trof will continue to swing east and eventually swing inland somewhere in the Thursday - Friday time-frame. Ec and GFS appear to have flip-flopped solutions when compared to 24 hours ago and also differ in timing by nearly 24 hours. Now the ec shows less offshore splitting of the 500mb trof and a stronger cold front passage coupled with a windy scenario. The GFS also supports windy conditions but the system is weaker and 12-24 hours slower. All things considered, the upcoming frontal system will bring a good chance for windy conditions, enhance precipitation, and cool temperatures down some but we have very little confidence regarding timing and when/where to place the highest pops each 12 hour period given these uncertainties. Outside the late week storm system, Tuesday will be the breeziest day of the week with breezy southerly winds somewhere in the 10 to 20 mph range. All other days will generally be around 10 mph or less except for the mountains. The subtropical origins of the incoming air mass will also deliver above normal warmth with mild overnight lows and potential for several days of 60's across the Lower Basin. /Sb&& Aviation... 12z tafs: moist southerly flow will enhance into widespread light rain over eastern Washington and north Idaho this morning promoting MVFR ceilings at all the eastern taf sites through 02-05z this evening...when the precipitation band will slowly move east to the Idaho/montanan border by 12z Sunday. Behind this rain area a westerly gradient will promote moist upslope flow into the kgeg vicinity taf sites and kpuw with a strong chance of upslope MVFR or IFR stratus by dawn. The kmwh taf site will be on the western fringe of the precipitation shield with a small chance of rain but also periods of IFR ceilings in stratus between 12z and 15z today. Keat will remain outside of the precipitation area and VFR conditions will likely prevail but with gusty westerly winds after 20z today. /Mjf && Preliminary point temps/pops...
