NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
502 am PDT sun may 24 2015 


Synopsis... 
today will be another warm day with temperatures in the upper 70s 
to low 80s over much of the inland northwest. The arrival of a 
cold front tonight will cool temperatures closer to average on 
Memorial Day. The front will also bring an increasing chance of 
showers and thunderstorms to the region. Some thunderstorms across 
the northern mountains may become strong with hail and gusty 
outflows winds possible. Slow moving afternoon thunderstorms 
Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday will be capable of producing 
locally heavy rain. Next weekend looks to be quite warm with 
Summer-like temperatures in the mid 80s to low 90s. 


&& 


Discussion... 
Sunday through Monday night: the weather over the region will be 
under the influence of an upper level low pressure system 
currently residing over southwest British Columbia. This low will drop further 
south today. Not much will change at the surface as much of the 
region will continue to be moist at the surface. Dew point 
temperatures are generally running in the 40s and low 50s across 
the region. In fact, the little bit of drier air that crept its 
way into the northern half of the region is already getting 
supplanted by more moist air from the south. The 00z GFS solution 
seems to dry out the boundary layer too much for this afternoon. 
Some moisture should mix out as the inversion breaks; otherwise, I 
do not see an air mass change and I prefer the 00z NAM depiction 
of cape profiles across the region. The more unstable NAM has up 
around 500-1000 j/kg of cape to tap into for this afternoon. The 
mountains will see the best chances for breaking the capping 
inversion with convection possible by the early afternoon hours. 
This will include the northeast blue mtns and the Idaho Panhandle. 
The low tracking down out of British Columbia will also provide some lift, 
especially across the northern portion of the region. This weather 
system is expected to produce more organized convection from the 
east slopes of the northern Cascades over to the western basin and 
into the Okanogan Highlands by the mid afternoon hours. Chances 
for thunderstorms will then increase eastward across the basin, 
into the northeast mtns by the late afternoon hours; this trend 
will continue into the overnight hours where the Panhandle will 
see a chance for widespread showers and a chance for thunderstorms 
through the night. 


There will also be some shear to work with this afternoon. Models 
indicate 0-6 km unidirectional shear of up to around 30-35 kts in 
the Cascades north of Lake Chelan over into the northeast mtns by 
the evening. These northern mountain areas will see a chance for 
stronger thunderstorms today. There will be the possibility for 
organized convection with hail and gusty outflow winds as 
potential threats. Thunderstorms will also bring the potential 
for frequent cloud to ground lightning strikes and heavy 
downpours. The good news is that these storms should be moving at 
about 20 mph to the east and northeast. This is not a fast storm 
motion, but will lesson the risk for flash flooding. With that 
said, there will be the potential for heavy rainfall over some of 
the 2014 burn scars in the Cascades and in the Okanogan Highlands 
(most notably the Carlton complex and Devils Elbow burn scars). 


Stronger storms with large hail and strong outflow winds will be 
less of a concern on Monday as the upper level low shifts further 
over the region. Storm motion will be a bit slower, so heavy 
rainfall with flooding impacts is expected to be the primary focus. 
This would include the potential for flash flooding and/or debris 
flows. Thunderstorms will be possible over recent burn scars 
across the east slopes of the northern Cascades and in the 
Okanogan Highlands, so these areas will need to be monitored in 
particular. 


One more "hot" day is in store for today. High temperatures will 
once again be up in the 80s for many locations. Temperatures will 
cool a bit on Monday, but will only cool to right around seasonal 
normals. /Svh 


Tuesday through thursday: the Cascade burn scars stand a good shot 
of afternoon and evening thunderstorms Tuesday through Thursday. 
The medium range models produce moderate levels of surface based 
instability over The Spine of the northern and central Washington 
Cascades several days in a row this week. Tuesday could produce 
the best coverage of showers and thunderstorms over the inland 
northwest (and the cascades) as a slow moving, vertically stacked 
low sets up over the Columbia Basin. The models are in good 
agreement that the low will drift into the southern Idaho 
Panhandle by Wednesday afternoon. By Thursday, remnants of the low 
will likely be well south of our region, but residual low level 
moisture combined with afternoon instability will once again 
generate scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms. The 
synoptic set up Tuesday through Thursday is not our "text book" 
heavy rain pattern which features southerly flow and high 
precipitable water values. However, the slow progression of the 
upper low through our region combined with weak storm steering 
flow and moderate instability will likely yield cells capable of 
heavy rainfall. It is tough to envision Big Burn scars like 
Carlton (methow valley), Mills Canyon (south of lake chelan), and 
Chiwaukum (hwy 2) not being tested this week. Elsewhere, the 
thunderstorms Tuesday through Thursday don't appear to be much 
more than our typical late Spring storms. Weak shear and modest 
instability suggest the potential for locally heavy rain. The lack 
of shear will probably limit large hail to relatively brief 
pulses. 


Friday and saturday: a warm high pressure ridge is expected to 
build over the western U.S. Friday into next weekend. The 850mb 
temperatures progged by the GFS, ECMWF, and Canadian models are 
in the 18-20c neighborhood by Saturday. MOS guidance from the GFS 
and European model (ecmwf) looks too cool, and raw model numbers look more 
realistic given the warm air aloft. It looks like upper 80s and 
lower 90s by Saturday. If early week rains pan out, residual 
surface moisture could contribute to a "muggy feel" at least by 
our region's standards next weekend. /Gkoch 


&& 


Aviation... 
12z tafs: abundant boundary layer moisture is expected to result 
in low cumulus development through the morning at the kpuw taf 
site with MVFR cigs possible. An upper level low pressure system 
will then push into the region out of southwestern British 
Columbia this afternoon. This will result in scattered showers and 
thunderstorms primarily east and north of the keat taf site. Best 
chances for thunderstorms will be in the Cascade mtns north of 
Lake Chelan over into the northern Panhandle. Thunderstorms will 
develop over the Cascades early in the afternoon and then spread 
eastward through the day into the overnight hours. There is 
moderate confidence that at least isolated thunderstorms will 
impact the kmwh, kgeg, ksff and kcoe taf sites. Confidence is low 
that thunderstorms will impact keat, kpuw and klws taf sites. /Svh
