NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
406 am PST Sat Dec 20 2014 


Synopsis... 
a more active weather pattern will continue into early next week. 
Another wet and robust weather system will bring snow to the 
mountains with mainly rain for the valleys today and tonight. 
Temperatures are expected to remain above average through early 
next week...before dropping down toward normal values by Christmas 
day. 




&& 


Discussion... 
today through Sunday...the well advertised storm system with the 
deep moisture tap into an atmospheric river is upon the pac northwest 
this morning. Expect a wet 24-36 hours for all locations. The deep 
moisture tap will sag south tonight. This will decrease the 
chances of precipitation in the Lee of the Cascades, but southwest 
flow will keep high pops across the Cascades...the northern 
mountains and the Panhandle mountains through the night. As the 
moisture continues to drop into Oregon on Sunday the remainder of 
the forecast area will see decreasing chances of precipitation. 


As mentioned above this will be a very wet storm. The heaviest 
precipitation will fall on the Cascades where 1.5-3.0 inches and 
possibly more can be expected by Sunday afternoon. 1.0-2.0 inches 
are possible for the Blue Mountains and and the central Idaho 
Panhandle. Around .50-1.0 for the northern mountains and .50-.75 
for the basin, Palouse and the West Plains. 


The tricky part will be snow levels. With this much moisture 
and warm air advection snow levels will rise dramatically through 
the day. This morning snow levels are around 3000 feet across the 
south and as low as 1500-2000 feet across the north. By this 
afternoon snow levels will be 6000-7000 feet across the south and 
2500-3500 feet across the north. So mostly rain in the valleys and 
snow in the mountains. For the Cascades 1-2 feet of snow will be 
possible, with 4-8 inches for the northern mountains and the 
higher elevation of the central Panhandle. An area of concern will 
be the Cascade valleys that are starting out a little colder and 
will be slow to warm up. I still think that these valleys will 
turn over to rain by mid morning, but before that 3-8 inches of 
snow will be possible. Advisories have been issued to cover this 
and will be continued. 


Winds will be on the increase tonight and Sunday. The surface 
gradient increases to around 10 mb between kpdt and kgpi with 850 
mb winds 40-50 kts. Not sure that there will be sufficient mixing 
to get these winds to surface. We normally need cold air advection 
and that will not be the case Sunday morning. But it will still be 
enough for breezy to windy conditions tonight and Sunday. With 
gusty winds and strong warm air advection temperatures will be in 
the 40s today and and 40s to 50s on Sunday. Tobin 


Sunday night through Tuesday...the weather pattern over the 
region will be in transition from a very moist Pacific flow to a 
ridging pattern with a drier overland northwest trajectory. The 
greatest chance of precipitation will be over the Cascade crest 
and the southeast zones as the moisture fetch sinks south. 
Westerly flow will keep a rain shadow over the east slopes of the 
Cascades and the basin while enhancing precip chances for the 
rising terrain east of the basin. The shift to northwest flow will 
act to lower snow levels but precip coverage will be decreasing as 
well. 


As the ridge builds over the region the threat of low stratus and 
fog will build as well. There will be ample low level moisture 
available so the deciding factor for fog will be the amount of 
clearing Monday morning as again Monday night. Downsloping breezy 
winds across the western valleys and into the western basin should 
mitigate the fog threat Sunday night but these winds will diminish 
by Monday night. Tuesday will see an increase in precip chances as 
Pacific moisture starts to stream into the region ahead of the 
next trough. Temperatures will be warm enough for a valley 
Rain/Mountain snow event. 


Tuesday night through Friday...the large scale pattern will 
transition from flat westerly flow aloft to a more amplified 
pattern with a Pacific trough transiting the region during peak 
Holiday travel times. Medium range models had been moving toward a 
shared solution but now that the 00z run is available, the European model (ecmwf) 
has flipped back to the more southern track with precipitation. 
With this level of uncertainty, no changes will be made to the 
extended forecast period at this time. High levels of uncertainty 
remain as to snowfall probabilities for much of the inland 
northwest. The southeast zones carry a higher degree of 
confidence in accumulating snowfall down to about 2000 ft 
elevations but the fact that this is a day-5 forecast carries its 
own uncertainty. /Kelch

Aviation... 
12z tafs: precipitation from the next Pacific storm is already 
pushing through keat and kmwh as of 11z...and the next 24 hours 
will be a very wet period for eastern Washington and north Idaho. 
Expectations are for -ra to begin at the eastern taf sites around 
14z but intensify after 16z...then linger through 12z Sunday. 
There may be some brief breaks and periods of heavier rain over 
the next 24 hours with widely varying cigs/vsby. Precipitation 
may begin mixed to begin, but will quickly turn over to rain. Mainly 
light southeast-east winds today will change over to SW between 03-06z and 
increase to around 10-12 kts with gusts 20-25kts for kpuw through 
the night.
