NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
231 PM PST Wednesday Nov 26 2014 


Synopsis... 
mild and breezy weather is expected tonight and Thanksgiving with 
areas of dense fog. Snow levels should rise above the mountain 
passes. Motorists with plans to travel over the mountain passes 
should experience good conditions this afternoon through Friday 
afternoon. The arrival of a cold front Friday night into Saturday 
will bring winter driving conditions to the mountain passes and 
much cooler weather for the weekend. 


&& 


Discussion... 
tonight and thursday: the region remains under a dirty upper-level 
ridge. In general, the ridge is bringing much warmer air into the 
region (at least in the midlevels) and is shoving the moist 
frontal boundary northward into southern British Columbia. Because the ridge has 
not fully translated east, this moisture is coming down the 
eastern periphery of the ridge and continuing to bring light rain 
and High Mountain snow into the northern Idaho Panhandle. A bigger 
impact from the warming aloft is a moist inversion over the basin 
delivering widespread fog and low clouds. Dense fog has plagued 
the upper Columbia Basin through much of the day and will continue 
for much of the night. As of 2pm...the worse visibilities were 
found along Hwy 2 from Airway Heights to Waterville and northward 
along Hwy 395 between Spokane and Colville. As such, a dense fog 
advisory has been issued. 


As we go into the night and Thanksgiving, the ridge will flatten 
and the moist frontal boundary will sag back into Washington and 
northern Idaho. We will not see much in the way of cooling north 
of the boundary but rather an increase in precipitation. The good 
news is winds should begin picking up and we will lose The Pockets 
of cooler air in the northern valleys resulting in snow levels 
between 5-6k ft. Modest westerly flow within the 850-700mb layer 
will deliver somewhat of a rain shadow in the basin but also add 
lift to the already strong isentropic Omega over the northern and 
eastern mountains. 


Under this pattern, a wide range of temperatures will be found 
across the region. Today for instance, we are seeing highs in the 
30's north to 60's in the foothills of the blue mtns. Overnight 
lows will drop very little from the current readings (with the 
exception of the 60's in the southeast) then tomorrow will have 
the potential for widespread 40s and 50s with a few 60's if the 
winds can efficiency mix to the valley floors. /Sb 




&& 


Aviation... 
18z tafs: recent rain/snow and warming aloft will promote areas 
of fog and low clouds across most terminals this morning with 
improving conditions expected through this evening. Areas of 
LIFR/IFR fog currently stretches across the upper Columbia Basin 
from kcoe to kmwh. Confidence is low regarding exact timing for 
improvements but gusty S/SW winds in the Lower Basin should 
promote improving conditions kpuw-klws by 20z then expanding north 
through 06z. Kmwh/keat will carry the lower probabilities for 
clearing. The upper-level ridge will flatten tomorrow suppressing 
the moist frontal boundary back south lowering cigs btwn 4-6k ft 
agl and incr the threat for light rain. /Sb
