NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
1040 PM PDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


Synopsis... 
a slow moving frontal system will slowly move through the region 
over the next 24 hours. Rain will push up against the Cascades 
tonight...before tracking across the region Friday and Friday 
night. Rain in the Idaho Panhandle will likely linger into 
Saturday. Cool and unsettled weather is expected to continue into 
next week. 




&& 


Discussion... 
quick update this evening to modify chance of precipitation 
through the evening and into tomorrow morning. Radar showing some 
very light showers across northeast Washington and north Idaho. These showers 
should move out of the area in the next 2 hours or so, with this 
area then remaining dry the rest of the night. Other change made 
was to split the chance of precipitation tomorrow morning into an 
early morning and mid morning period. Models seem to agree that 
the Spokane area shouldn't see any rain through the morning 
commute at least...and therefore decreased chance of precip 
throughout Spokane County and areas to the east and north. /Nisbet 




&& 
previous discussion... 
tonight through Friday night...afternoon 
satellite imagery shows a deep low pressure system in the eastern 
Pacific out near 135w. Current model guidance is matching up 
pretty well. The low is expected to split tonight as a a short 
rounds the bottom of the trough courtesy of a 130+ kt jet. With 
the jet parallel to the low forward movement has been slowed. The 
accompanying cold front isn't expected to cross the Cascades until 
Friday evening between 00z-03z. As the trough digs the steering 
flow will become increasingly southerly. The warm front eased in 
from the west- northwest overnight...but as the flow becomes 
increasingly southerly the warm front will retrograde back to the 
west and tuck up against the east slopes of the Cascades this 
evening...before slowly pushing through the forecast area Friday 
afternoon. 


The cold front then tracks across the remainder of the forecast 
area Friday night and stalls over the Idaho Panhandle. This puts 
the focus for the best precipitation to the Idaho Panhandle. The 
stratiform precipitation will change to showers with the 
atmosphere drying from west to east. 


Precipitation: I kept the chances for precipitation west of a 
line from about Republic south to about Saddle Mountain wildlife 
area for most of tonight and Friday. Aiding in the precipitation 
production will be light east to southeast winds which will add an 
orographic lift. Rain fall amounts will range from .10 to .15 for 
the lower east slopes and the deep basin to around an inch near 
the Cascade crest over the next 24 hours. Snow levels are pretty 
high, around 6k feet and are not expected to drop below 5k feet 
until after the frontal passage Friday night. By this time the 
heaviest precipitation will be winding down. But the area near the 
Cascade crest could certainly pick up several inches of fresh snow 
in the showers following the cold front. Further to the east 
precipitation will begin later but not be quite as wet. Quantitative precipitation forecast from a 
couple hundredths in the deep basin to around a third of an inch 
in the Blue Mountains and the central Panhandle mountains early 
Saturday morning. Again snow levels will start out very high in 
the warm sector precipitation and not drop below 5k feet until 
later Saturday morning. So precipitation should be as mostly rain. 


Temps and wind: temperatures will bump up 3-5 degrees Friday with 
southerly winds and warm air advection. Pre-frontal winds from the 
east-southeast will come around to the south-southwest Friday 
afternoon and increase slightly. Winds 5-10 mph with gusts to 15 
mph will be common as this is not expected to be a big wind event. 
/Tobin 


Saturday and sunday: a trough pattern will slowly traversing 
through the region during this period. Models are in good 
agreement of timing and moisture associated with this system. With 
strong cyclonic flow around the apex of the trough in northwest Nevada, a 
strong moist flow will push into the Idaho Panhandle and western 
Montana. This is expected to bring precip to the Idaho Panhandle 
and extreme eastern Washington. The bulk of the precip is expected 
to fall on Saturday with snow levels above 5000 feet. Areas could 
receive rain totals of at least a quarter of an inch in the cams 
prairie area and around one inch near Mullan Pass. Snow levels 
drop to around 4000 feet late Saturday but the bulk of moisture 
and the trough will shift further east. This will allow for light 
snow accumulation in the higher elevations near Lookout Pass. The 
Cascades during this period are expected to fairly dry. Spill over 
from the western Washington along the Cascades will bring some 
light showers to the eastern side of the Cascades but precip 
amounts will fairly small. The Columbia Basin is expected to be 
dry during this weekend. Temperatures for this will period will be 
near the season normals. Highs will range in the upper 40s to low 
50s. Lows are expected to around mid 30s with some locations 
expected to cross into freezing temperatures. /Jdc 


Monday and tuesday: shortwave ridge of higher pressure breaks down 
and allows another moist Pacific storm system to push across the 
region. This storm system will ride a 150 +kt jet streak directed 
toward Vancouver Island. Much of the upper level dynamics 
associated with the jet and vorticity maximum will remain north 
of the region. This will result in a surface low that tracks 
across central and northern British Columbia from Monday night into Tuesday. 
Precip will develop during the day on Monday with some decent 
isentropic ascent ahead of the cold front. The cold front will 
then swing across the region Tuesday morning. This is will result 
in approximately 12-18 hours of light to moderate precip from 
Monday afternoon into Tuesday morning. All areas will see a good 
chance for at least some light precip. Best accumulations are 
expected across the northeast mtns over into the Idaho Panhandle with 
storm totals of between 0.50 to 1.00 inches. Totals will be a bit 
less out into the greater basin area with 0.25 to 0.50 inches 
expected in the Spokane area and on the palouse; and up to a 
quarter of an inch for most other locations around the region. 
Snow levels will generally be up around 5,000 feet. They sill 
start out a bit lower early Monday and then increase as the precip 
moves in through Monday night. 


Wednesday through thursday: there will be another storm system 
that moves through toward the end of the work week. A warm front 
will push north across the region on Wednesday. This will result 
in some light precip across the region. We may then see a little 
bit of a break in the precip before the cold front pushes through 
around Thursday. Models show a quick hitting cold front passage. 
Strong upper level dynamics aloft looks to spin up a deepening 
surface low pressure system from southern British Columbia into southern 
Alberta. This would create good packing of isobars across the 
region for Thursday afternoon. Expect breezy to windy conditions 
with this front. Wind highlights may be needed depending on how 
strong this surface low gets. The 12z model runs are the first to 
show such strong cyclogenesis, so confidence at this point in 
wind strength is low. 


Expect fall like temperatures next week. Overnight low temperatures 
will moderate out from the chilly temperatures expected this 
weekend. /Svh 


Aviation... 
06z tafs: light rain will continue at keat through Friday morning. 
Conditions will very widely at keat the next 12 hours from VFR to 
IFR and back. Precipitation and a lower deck will make it to kmwh 
by 17z but conditions are expected to remain VFR. Further to the 
east the remainder of the taf sites will not see precipitation 
begin until aft 20z Friday...again with lowering decks but 
conditions mainly VFR.
