Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
358 PM PST Thursday Feb 11 2016 


Synopsis... 
a warm front lifts into the inland northwest through tonight. 
This will spread a chance of rain across much of the area. Snow 
will generally fall only in the higher mountains. The exception 
will be in the valleys near the north Cascades. A cold front 
passes later Friday, with continued precipitation chances and 
slightly lower snow levels. Unsettled weather will continue 
through the weekend into early next week with valley rain, High 
Mountain snow and breezy winds expected. Temperatures will be 
quite mild on Monday with many locations seeing highs in the mid 
50s to low 60s. 




&& 


Discussion... 
tonight through saturday: the inland northwest will be in a wetter 
pattern as a frontal wave moves through the region. Tonight a warm 
front draped across southern Washington and the lower Idaho Panhandle lifts 
toward the northern mountains. Deepening and moistening isentropic 
ascent will lead to broad precipitation threat across the inland 
northwest this evening. However the highest risk will be along and north 
of I-90 and lowest toward the Palouse into the l-c valley. 
Precipitation will largely fall as rain in the valleys, leaving 
snow for the higher mountains. The main exception remains near the 
Methow Valley where the warm air is not too deep and precipitation 
may fall as a rain/snow mix or all snow. This may result in an 
inch or so of snow through the night. Otherwise models don't show 
the precipitation to be too significant in terms of amounts, with 
most areas seeing somewhere around a tenth of an inch through 
Friday morning. Also, while pops will be relatively high, the 
precipitation may be periodic, meaning it doesn't look organized 
enough to say the entire period will see steady rain. Between the 
precipitation there will be the potential for fog. Yet confidence 
in coverage and intensity in low, so it left as patchy. 


Going into Friday the warm front lingers near the northern-tier, 
while a cold front comes toward the Cascades in the afternoon. In 
the morning some models show drier air across south-central and 
southeastern Washington and the lower Panhandle. Others are not as ready 
to bring drier air in. A threat of precipitation will continue 
across region, however the highest risk across the Cascades and 
northern mountain zones. Between Friday afternoon and evening the 
cold front crosses the Cascades and advances toward the Idaho/Washington 
border. This will revitalize the threat of precipitation the 
Cascades will seeing the highest risk in the afternoon, while 
chances wane there through the evening. Chances will increase 
farther east through the afternoon and peak in the evening. 
Between late evening and overnight the broader threat retreats to 
the mountains, while The Lowlands dry out. The incoming cold front 
will also lead to some breezy conditions by Friday afternoon, 
generally highest over south-central to southeastern Washington into the 
Idaho Palouse. Speeds on the order of 5 to 15 mph with gusts to 25 
mph will be possible. 


On Saturday an upper trough continues to migrate through the 
eastern third of Washington and north Idaho early, while the next warm front 
starts to impinge on the Cascades in the afternoon. This set-up 
will keep the the threat of showers alive across the region. With 
the highest risk in the Cascades and the northeast Washington and Idaho 
Panhandle mountains, as well the rising terrain over the eastern 
Columbia Basin. The lowest risk will be in the Lee of the Cascades 
and deeper Columbia Basin. Winds will be a bit stronger Saturday 
afternoon, especially south-central and southeast and eastern- 
central Washington into the Idaho Palouse. Speeds of 10 to 20 mph, 
with gusts to 30 mph will be possible. This should allow for most 
areas to come out of the air stagnation advisory. The main 
exception will be near the Cascade valleys/Okanogan Valley where 
winds and mixing will be less. /J. Cote' 


Saturday night through Thursday...the models are in relatively 
good agreement through about 12z Wednesday before breaking down 
Wednesday and Thursday. Zonal flow or weak ridging will be over 
the region through the forecast period. The westerly flow will tap 
into deep Pacific moisture with several weak waves that are 
expected to move through the main flow. This will result in a warm 
and fairly wet forecast through the extended period. Snow levels 
Saturday night will be around 3k feet for the north and 4k feet 
across the south, but rapidly increase by Sunday afternoon to 5-6k 
feet and to 6-7k feet by Monday. So the higher elevations of the 
Cascades and the northern and Panhandle mountains could see 3-6 
inches of wet snow Saturday night, otherwise precipitation will be 
as rain with high elevations snow the remainder of the week. 
Precipitation amounts from Saturday night through Tuesday could 
reach 0.25-0.50 for the lower elevations and 0.50-1.00 or a littlemore 
for the mountains. Near the Cascade crest 1.0 to 1.5 inches will 
be possible. Temperatures on Sunday will be in the 40s and 50s, 
which will be about 5 degrees above normal. Then the temperatures 
will increase Monday and Tuesday by another 5-10 degrees. The warm 
temperatures and rain will almost certainly result in good snow 
melt and rises on area rivers. 


We will have to pay special attention to Monday. Temperatures are 
expected to 10-15 degrees above normal and dew points will be 
well into the 40s and 50s. A surface low will develop east of the 
Continental Divide and with weak surface high pressure along the 
coast the surface gradient will increase. In addition 850mb winds 
will increase to around 35-40kts. This will result in southwest 
winds 20-30 mph with gust 30-40 mph across the mountain tops, the 
Columbia Basin and the Palouse area. Gusty winds, warm 
temperatures and high dew points will result in rapid snow melt. 
The focus will be across the Waterville Plateau, some of he 
mountain valleys, and across the Idaho Palouse where the low 
elevation snow will likely melt at a rapid rate. Model hydrographs 
show rapid rises on almost all rivers and streams, but areas of 
concern will be the Palouse basin, and the Coeur D'Alene basin 
where the rivers may bump up against action stage. Up on the 
Waterville Plateau there is plenty of snow to melt and run off. 
Palisades creek will see some significant rises. In addition snow 
melt will likely cause nuisance flooding along secondary roads and 
especially in area where culverts cross the Road. We will issue a 
hydrologic outlook to keep up with situational awareness through 
the weekend. 


Wednesday and Thursday...the models break down as far as 
consistency GOES. Some models try to bring an upper level trough 
through the region late Wednesday and Thursday, while others want 
to under-cut the ridge with the low going into California ans 
still others have something some where in between. I chose to keep 
a low end chance of rain or showers in the forecast for now with 
temperatures cooling off but remaining above normal. Tobin

Aviation... 


00z tafs: a warm front will move north through the forecast area 
tonight...deepening the moisture over the region and increasing 
the chance for light rain at the taf sites. Light rain currently 
falling across the western zones will slowly track east across the 
region through the evening. Conditions will be mainly VFR ahead of 
and with the precipitation. Behind the rain stratus and fog 
development lower cigs/vsby to MVFR and possible IFR early Friday 
morning. Conditions improving back to VFR for most areas after 
18z Friday. Tobin
