NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
446 am PDT Friday Apr 18 2014 


Synopsis... 
today will be a brief break in the Pacific storm train. A weaker 
front will bring mainly windy conditions Saturday afternoon and 
night with some showers across the north. Easter Sunday should be 
mild and mainly dry. After a warm and dry Monday, temperatures 
will cool for the remainder of the week as another Pacific storm 
moves into the area. 


&& 


Discussion... 
today and tonight: the cold front is now just beginning to push 
into the Idaho Panhandle at around 2:30 am. This is producing some 
showers along the front. There is also some showers popping up 
behind the front in an increasingly unstable air mass. These 
showers, at the moment, are concentrated over the Okanogan 
Valley/Highlands and will continue on their eastward progression 
through the rest of today. Much of the shower activity associated 
with the upper level disturbance will remain across the northern 
mtns with the Spokane area possibly seeing an isolated shower on 
the southern fringe through this morning. Much of the forcing is 
a bit too far out ahead of the weak instability to see much of a 
chance for any thunderstorms this morning. The cold pool aloft 
will begin to exit the region this afternoon before we reach our 
maximum heating, so I don't see much of a risk for thunderstorms 
today either. 


Pressure gradients behind the cold front are tightening 
considerably this morning with windy conditions picking up across 
the basin. Our strongest winds are still expected through this 
morning with generally breezy conditions through the afternoon 
hours. Some spots across the upper Columbia Basin, into the 
Spokane area and down onto the Palouse will see near to Wind 
Advisory level winds; however, it will be borderline enough that 
I do not anticipate having to issue a highlight. Sustained wind 
speeds of up to 25 to 30 mph with gusts to around 40 mph still 
looks valid through this morning. These winds will slacken off a 
bit in the afternoon as pressure gradients begin to weaken. 


Winds will become light overnight with a substantial amount of 
drier air filtering into the region. Dew point temps at Wenatchee 
and Moses Lake have already plummeted down into the low 30s early 
this morning. This dry air will continue to spread across the 
region today. Sky conditions will be clearing through the 
afternoon with some thin cirrus beginning to enter into the region 
tonight. There will be a risk for freezing temps across the Moses 
Lake area and across the lower portions of the upper Columbia 
Basin. These areas are considered to be in their growing season 
and a highlight may be needed; however, confidence is not quite 
high enough at this time. 


Saturday: a weak cold front will enter the region off of the 
eastern Pacific. Due to the drier air in place, we will likely 
only see increasing high and mid level clouds with this front. I 
went ahead and added some sprinkles to the forecast, but 
measurable precip is not really expected. Good mixing and 
increasing milder air into the region will result in warmer temps 
with highs slightly above normal. /Svh 


Saturday night through tuesday: as the cold front moves through 
the area late Saturday, gusty winds will develop. These winds 
should last through the night and subside on Sunday, just in time 
for Easter. The timing for winds is a bit more favorable than the 
front currently moving through our area, since the frontal passage 
will be in the late afternoon hours and we won't have a lot of 
rain cooled air ahead of it. Gusts to 40 mph still look possible. 


Easter Sunday continues to look dry with just a few mountain 
showers. There should be some clouds moving through the area, but 
by no means a cloudy day. 


Then the attention turns to a large-scale Pacific trough system. 
The models have been backing off a bit on the timing of this 
storm, and Monday now looks like it will be dry and rather warm 
with temperatures in the 60s to lower 70s. We'll see a drop of 
about 15 degrees for Tuesday as the trough pushes onshore and rain 
develops over much of the area. Since the models have been 
adjusting their timing with this system, I didn't go whole-hog 
with the precip chances at this point. At this point, this front 
does not look as wet as the one that moved through our area on 
Thursday. Rj 


Tuesday night through saturday: the large scale trough will be 
traversing the region for the middle portion of the work week. 
While the trough crossing the region is in agreement with the 
extended models, there is some disagreement in how fast it moves 
into the northern plains. The GFS/dgex would suggest it take a 
more meandering approach across Montana, with wrap-around moisture 
keeping thick cloud cover and higher precipitation chances over 
far eastern Washington into the Idaho Panhandle into Wednesday 
night. The European model (ecmwf) would suggest the trough continue moving east. With 
the previous forecast already having higher pops for the east, 
went ahead and gave a nod to the wetter solutions, while not going 
too high. This really isn't much higher, but more of a trend in 
that direction. Brief shortwave ridging will give way to yet 
another storm system toward the latter part of the work week. 


As far as temperatures go, most areas will remain below normal for 
this time of year. With the trough bringing in colder air aloft, 
snow levels will have to be watched over the Idaho Panhandle. If 
the wrap around precipitation does occur, 850 mb temperatures are 
going to be near or even below zero for Wednesday and Thursday 
mornings. This would bring snow down below pass levels, and even 
into some valleys. Still a lot of time to look at this so will 
keep a more mountain Snow/Valley rain for now. TY 


&& 


Aviation... 
12z tafs: a cold front is sliding east of the region early this 
morning with windy conditions developing behind the front. Expect 
strongest winds to continue through the early afternoon hours with 
gusts up to between 30-40 mph possible. These winds will gradually 
weaken through the late afternoon hours before decoupling in the 
evening. Showers will continue to linger into the afternoon, 
mainly across the northern mtns and in the Idaho Panhandle. Considerable 
amount of dry air behind the front will keep cigs above 5 kft agl 
with VFR conditions prevailing through 12z Saturday. /Svh
