Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Severe Thunderstorm Watch  Statement as of 4:10 PM MDT on July 23, 2014


The NWS Storm Prediction Center has issued a

* Severe Thunderstorm Watch for portions of
northern Idaho
northwestern Montana
eastern Washington

* effective this Wednesday afternoon and evening from 410 PM
until 1100 PM MDT.

* Primary threats include...
isolated very large hail events to 2 inches in diameter possible
isolated damaging wind gusts to 70 mph possible

The Severe Thunderstorm Watch area is approximately along and 110
statute miles north and south of a line from 50 miles west
southwest of Spokane Washington to 50 miles northeast of Missoula
Montana. For a complete depiction of the watch see the
associated watch outline update (wous64 kwns wou5).

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Remember... a Severe Thunderstorm Watch means conditions are
favorable for severe thunderstorms in and close to the watch
area. Persons in these areas should be on the lookout for
threatening weather conditions and listen for later statements
and possible warnings. Severe thunderstorms can and occasionally
do produce tornadoes.


Other watch information... continue... ww 431... ww 432... ww
433... ww 434...

Discussion... seasonally stg juxtaposition of boundary-layer moisture
and favorable deep-layer kinematic profiles -- E.G. 50s sfc dew
points in lower elevations and 40-50 kt effective-shear magnitudes
respectively -- will support svr potential with convection
increasing in coverage/intensity attm across portions ern WA.
Additional development over mtns of nrn ID/wrn Mt also will pose svr
wind/hail risk as it moves newd.

Aviation... a few severe thunderstorms with hail surface and aloft
to 2 inches. Extreme turbulence and surface wind gusts to 60
knots. A few cumulonimbi with maximum tops to 450. Mean storm
motion vector 22040.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
225 PM PDT Wednesday Jul 23 2014 


Synopsis... 
a strong storm system and associated cold front will move through 
the region today and tonight, bringing thunderstorms with pockets 
of heavy rain. Cool and windy weather is expected for Thursday. 
Temperatures will rebound by the weekend and be accompanied by dry 
conditions. Hot weather will return to the area on Sunday and 
early next week. 






&& 


Discussion... 
rest of the afternoon and tonight... 


..severe thunderstorms continue be a threat through this 
evening over much of the region... 


Severe thunderstorms were moving through east slopes of the 
Cascades through much of the day with flash flooding near some of 
the recent burn areas such as the Carlton complex and Mill Canyon 
fires. Flash flood warnings had been issued in this region since 
early afternoon. Along with the heavy rain there had also been 
reports of hail as large as a quarter. 


Radar and satellite continue to show the progression of the cold 
front and strong thunderstorms progressing through the Cascades, 
Okanogan region and southern Washington as of 2 PM. These storms 
will continue to progress swiftly north and east through this 
evening with a potentially damaging and deadly combination of 
frequent lightning, possible Golf Ball sized hail, strong wind 
gusts to 60 miles per hour and very heavy rain causing localized flash 
flooding. 


Overall estimates of storms reaching the major metropolitan areas of 
Spokane and Coeur D'Alene as early as 3 PM and progressing into 
the northeast mountains of Washington and Idaho Panhandle shortly 
thereafter. It is highly urged to take shelter this afternoon and 
evening in a sturdy build until the the threat of these 
thunderstorms pass. The overall threat of widespread severe 
thunderstorms should pass by late evening but thunderstorms will 
persist overnight near the Canadian border until around midnight. 


Behind the cold front and thunderstorms, wind will continue to be 
strong with 35 miles per hour gusts lasting into the late evening hours. 


Please continue to check frequently on the evolution of this 
dangerous situation from local radio and television news sources 
and the National Weather Service Spokane web site at http://weather.Gov/Spokane. 


Thursday through Saturday... 
showers will still linger over the mountains especially north and 
east in the Idaho Panhandle. Temperatures will be cooler Thursday 
will a cool night Thursday night. Going into Friday and Saturday 
Mountain showers will be greatly diminished and a warming trend 
will begin as high pressure builds into the region. Tc 


Sunday through wednesday: the heat returns to the inland 
northwest. High pressure builds over the area for an extended 
period of hot weather. But there are some flies in the ointment. 
Both the European model (ecmwf) and GFS show a little ripple in the flow coming up 
from the southwest sometime Sunday or Monday. This brings moisture 
into the area which could bring a threat of high-based (i.E. 
Mostly dry) thunderstorms. The best chance would be over southeast 
Washington and the southern Panhandle for Monday. After that wave, 
convection should mainly be confined to the south of our area, but 
that could change with the next forecasts. 


The other affect of this moisture is that it will play havoc with 
the temperatures for Monday. Clouds overnight could result in rather 
balmy low temperatures. Clouds during the day could shave a few 
degrees off the high temperatures. At this point I cooled 
temperatures a bit for Monday afternoon. Rj 


&& 


Aviation... 
18z tafs: low pressure off the coast will shift move inland over 
the next 24 hours. Widespread rain...heavy at times will be near 
keat with embedded lightning strikes. Stronger storms expected to 
develop in the basin and track east toward the Washington/Idaho border around 
00z bringing the potential for damaging winds, hail, and heavy 
downpours. Gusty winds will follow in the wake of cold front 
passage late afternoon and into the overnight periods. Lingering 
showers over the northern mountains for Thursday but all taf sites 
dry out overnight. /Sb
