NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
504 PM PDT Thursday Apr 28 2016 


Synopsis... 
a cooler system will bring increased cloud cover and areas of rain 
across eastern Washington and north Idaho on Friday. High pressure 
will build in Saturday through Monday resulting in a warming 
trend. Temperatures early next week will climb to above normal 
once again...with highs mainly in the mid 70s to lower 80s. High 
pressure will move east for the middle of next week allowing 
increased moisture to move in from the south...resulting in a 
chance for showers and thunderstorms. 


&& 


Discussion... 
tonight through Friday night: satellite imagery shows a weak upper 
level low pressure circulation centered over southwest Montana. The 
track of this low will be peculiar in that it will lift north- 
northwest into northwest Montana through tonight into Friday. Much of 
this moisture can actually be tracked from off of the Gulf of 
Mexico rather than off of the eastern Pacific. Higher clouds are 
already streaming in across the Idaho Panhandle this afternoon. 
There is an easterly pressure gradient across the Panhandle, 
which is resulting in downsloping off of the higher terrain. This 
gradient will weaken overnight and flip to a more westerly 
orientation. It will be during the late nighttime hours into the 
morning hours on Friday when lower levels will really begin to 
moisten up and orographics will play a bigger factor. Models 
indicate a healthy amount of precip possible across the Idaho 
Panhandle. The flow pattern at 700 mbs will be a bit more 
northwesterly than due westerly where precip will be most 
favorable across the central Panhandle mtns and extend down toward 
the Camas Prairie. Around a half of an inch of precip will be 
possible across these areas. Expect a steady rainfall through 
Friday morning then transition to showers by the afternoon. 
Showers will expand a bit further west in the afternoon where the 
eastern basin and northeast mtns will see a better chance for 
precip. Much of the region will be cloudy tomorrow even if not 
under rain showers, which will result in a noticeably cooler day 
compared to today. Many locations in the Idaho Panhandle are only 
expected to warm up into the lower 50s. /Svh 


Saturday through Thursday...an upper level ridge will build over 
the region over the weekend into early next week bringing a 
warming and drying trend. A few showers are expected to linger 
over the Idaho Panhandle on Saturday...otherwise a dry forecast 
Saturday through Monday morning. Monday afternoon the ridge axis 
shifts east of the area allowing a weak wave to come around the 
high and then up along the Cascades. Models are not very 
consistent with this idea...but enough instability and lift is 
shown by some guidance to warrant a slight chance of 
thunderstorms. For Tuesday through Thursday an amplified pattern 
sets up with the upper ridge east of the area over the Rocky 
Mountain states...and a trough off the West Coast. This places the 
inland northwest in a deep southerly flow aloft. This will result in an 
increase in mid level moisture as well as instability over the 
area. Thus an increasing chance for showers and thunderstorms is 
expected. The GFS shows cape values by next Thursday increasing to 
1000-1500 j/kg with 25-40 kts of 0-6km wind shear. This could 
support stronger storms...but since this is several days out 
confidence is low in the details. 


The building ridge this weekend followed by a mild southerly flow 
for the early to middle of next week will result in a warming 
trend through Tuesday or Wednesday. 850mb temperatures rising into 
the 15-18c range will yield valleys highs climbing into the mid 70s 
to lower 80s...which is about 15 degrees above normal. Jw

Aviation... 
00z tafs: the region is under a broad upper level trough of low pressure. 
A weak circulation over SW Montana will increase moisture over the 
region. -Shra over the Okanogan Highlands and Cascades will 
move southeast and continue through 03z. Rain will increase overnight 
into Friday morning in extreme eastern Washington and in the Idaho Panhandle. 
Expect MVFR cigs and vis possible at the kgeg, ksff, kpuw and kcoe 
taf sites after 09z. Cigs will improve in the afternoon but 
showers will still be likely across the region.
