Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
420 am PDT Tuesday Apr 28 2015 


Synopsis... 
high pressure will begin to get pushed east today, producing mild 
and dry conditions. An approaching cold front will lead to an 
increase in winds later today through Wednesday, along with a 
chance for showers and possibly a few thunderstorms mainly tonight. 
A few showers may linger over the mountains Wednesday and Thursday. 
This will be followed by a general drying trend into the weekend. 




&& 


Discussion... 
today through Wednesday...satellite imagery shows a low pressure 
system just off the central British Columbia coast as of 2 am with a weak cold 
front extending south from the low off the Washington and Oregon 
coast. There is good model agreement that this cold front will 
pass through tonight. 


Ahead of the front prefrontal southwest winds and 850mb 
temperatures ranging from 12-17c (warmest over north idaho) will 
result in a mild day with widespread Valley High temps in the 70s 
with low 80s for the Lewiston-Clarkston area. As the cold front 
moves into the this afternoon and then across central Washington 
by early this evening, models show the best shower threat near the 
Cascade crest. Moisture will be a limiting factor with this front. 
Downslope westerly winds off the Cascades should keep showers just 
along the immediate crest. However enough instability will be 
present where isolated showers can not be ruled out over the 
higher terrain of the Cascades and the Okanogan Highlands. Breezy 
winds through the Cascade gaps and windy conditions on the ridge 
tops can be expected behind the front this evening. 


Then as the front tracks into eastern Washington and north Idaho 
overnight into early Wednesday morning showers coverage will 
increase due to favorable jet support...low level upslope 
flow...as well as strong forcing and mid level instability. 
Isolated thunderstorms are possible with the front. Drier air 
behind the front will spread across all of central and eastern 
Washington early Wednesday reaching north Idaho by noon. Models are 
not showing much Post-frontal shower activity, with the best 
chances near the Canadian border and Cascade crest. There will be 
just enough instability near the Canadian border around Northport 
and Metaline Falls where an isolated late afternoon thunderstorm 
can not be ruled out. Jw 


Wednesday night and Thursday night...the upper level trough will 
flatten out and shift east towards the Continental Divide, with 
the flow becoming more zonal (west to east). Enough instability 
will remain across the north Panhandle to hold onto to some 
isolated showers and thunderstorms through sunset. The flow then 
becomes westerly and allows drier air to move into the region 
overnight. Some orographically enhanced showers may linger through 
the afternoon on Thursday near the Canadian border, but these 
should be very spotty with light amounts of rain and high 
mountains snow. Temperatures will warm by a few degrees. Winds 
will remain out of the southwest but should subside nicely as the 
surface gradient decreases. 


Thursday night through Sunday night high pressure will strengthen 
in the eastern Pacific resulting in a weak and flat trough 
dropping south through b.C. To about the Canadian border. The 
models are back up to their old tricks with some major timing 
differences on just when to push this trough out of the area. 
Consensus will be to stay away from a GFS solution which will mean 
the trough will linger through Sunday night, and this solution is 
accepted. Moisture and dynamics are very weak with this trough. We 
may see some mid level clouds and possibly a few mountain 
sprinkles or light showers at times for the northern mountains, 
but I can't get very excited about this pattern. Temperatures will 
increase due to more sunshine, and while temperatures will remain 
on the warm side of normal I do not foresee any Big Warm up. 


Monday and Tuesday the weak ridge will push into the region for 
warm and dry conditions. Temperatures will be 5-8 degrees above 
normal. The past 2 or 3 model runs have been showing some very dry 
air coming into the region with this weak ridge and we will have 
to keep an eye on the relative humidity over the weekend. There 
hasn't been a lot of moisture of late and low relative humidity 
will continue to dry conditions. Fortunately we are not looking at 
any wind events with the ridge. Stay tuned. Tobin

Aviation... 
12z tafs: dry conditions are expected through this afternoon ahead 
of a cold front. The front will pass through keat this afternoon 
and across the remainder of the area tonight. East winds this 
morning will switch to southerly this afternoon...and then west- 
southwest behind the front for most areas. Showers are expected 
with the front for the eastern taf sites. Isolated thunderstorms 
are also possible...but confidence is low whether not any of the 
taf sites will see a storm and thus left mention out of the taf's.
