NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
450 PM PDT Thursday Aug 28 2014 


Synopsis... 
a cool down begins across the inland northwest, with an increase 
of clouds and locally breezy winds. A weak system will bring a 
chance of showers to the Cascades and northern mountains Friday. 
Another, stronger system arrives during the Holiday weekend. This 
will result in breezy to windy conditions, along with an increased 
chance for mountain showers. Temperatures will drop below normal 
by the weekend, with low temperatures in the 30s possible Sunday 
morning in the northern valleys of Washington and the Idaho 
Panhandle. 


&& 


Discussion... 
tonight and friday: brief ridging tonight will bring an end to 
any stray showers over the northern Panhandle. A stronger 
shortwave will move through the region bringing a chance of 
showers to the Cascades and across the northern tier. Any 
precipitation will be quite local with a very low chance of any 
wetting rains for the current wildfires. Thunderstorms and the 
associated threat of brief heavy rain are not expected. The main 
effect of this trough passage will be gusty westerly winds. 
Relative humidity is already increasing this afternoon so the 
threat of combined elevated winds and low relative humidity is minimal at best. 
Gusty winds will be accelerated down The East Slope gap valleys 
and will spread out into the Waterville Plateau, Upper Basin and 
Palouse. Gusts will be in the 20 to 30 mph range for those favored 
areas. Temperatures will start a cooling trend with readings in 
the upper 70s in the northern valleys to upper 80s for the lower 
valleys. /Kelch 


Friday nt through monday: we've focused on three main areas. 
Namely...winds Friday, wind and thunder Saturday, and cool low 
temps Sunday morning. Cold fropa Saturday morning will lead to 
mostly sunny skies and pleasant temps Saturday, though pressure 
gradients are strong enough to produce breezy conditions...especially 
near the Cascades such as the Wenatchee region. We did lower only 
slightly the chance of showers and thunder for NE Washington and the north Idaho 
Panhandle for Saturday afternoon and evening. There are some level 
of confidence issues concerning this, with model guidance not 
agreeing with the strength and path of the vort Max embedded in 
the upper broad trough. The trend in guidance is for less pcpn 
chances, and most locations have a sfc- based cap in the afternoon 
across NE WA and north Idaho. With winds decreasing overnight as skies 
clear, Sunday morning lows could fall into the 30s across the more 
sheltered NE WA and north Idaho valleys...the typical frost-pocket 
locations. Widespread frost is not expected. Wave number 2 quickly 
moves across the region Sunday and Sunday night. But this wave has 
a more stratified character (and even modest isentropic ascent), 
so we still kept pcpn amnts light and limited to the higher 
terrain for the Idaho Panhandle and the Cascades. Mon will see a 
warming and drying trend with more sunshine. Bz 


Monday night through thursday: relatively benign weather is 
followed by another chance of precipitation and breezy conditions 
by the middle of next week. The inland northwest transitions from a 
northwest to westerly flow early this period, with a relative 
decrease in moisture and convective instability. One weak wave 
exits through north Idaho at the start of the period, keeping a 
slight shower threat here Monday night into Tuesday am. Otherwise 
look for dry conditions with mostly clear to partly cloudy conditions. 
Late Tuesday into Thursday the next system digs south from the 
Gulf of Alaska into the inland northwest. Models disagree over the precise 
evolution of this system, especially how quickly it moves in. The 
ec/Gem/gefs have some agreement, as compared to the operational 
GFS. Overall moisture begins to deepen this period, with a leading 
warm front swinging in later Tuesday bringing the main chance of 
precipitation to the Cascades. This is followed by a cold front 
and unstable upper trough Wednesday into Thursday. Despite this 
the bulk of the deeper moisture is above 500mbs (~15kft) and 
models paint the main precipitation chances in the mountains 
through Wednesday. It is not until Thursday that the moisture 
deepens enough and there is enough instability to bring some 
threat of showers to the Columbia Basin. The cool upper trough 
will also bring some chance of thunder Wednesday and Thursday 
afternoon. Expect some increase in winds, especially around 
Wednesday afternoon and evening, as gradients and mixing increases 
with the incoming front. /J. Cote'

Aviation... 
00z tafs: one wave over NE Washington and north Idaho will move 
east and out of the area this evening...followed by another system 
crossing the Cascades late Friday afternoon. These two features 
will result in varying amounts of mid and high clouds for the taf 
sites. Near the Canadian border, deeper instability early this 
evening may result in isolated thunderstorms around Bonners Ferry.
