NWS Forecaster Discussion

Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
501 am PDT Friday Oct 9 2015 

today will be unseasonably warm with most of the inland northwest 
warming into the 70s. Saturday will also be quite warm with breezy 
winds developing in the afternoon. A fast moving cold front will 
bring a good chance of light rain to the region Saturday night. It 
will also be windy Saturday night behind the front. Mild and 
mainly dry weather is expected to return for the early to middle 
part of next week. 



..windy Saturday afternoon into Saturday night.... 

Today and tonight: an unseasonably warm day is in store for the 
inland northwest today. Our region will be under the influence of 
deep southerly flow ahead of a strong cold expected to arrive on 
Saturday evening. Ahead of the front today, a shortwave high 
pressure ridge will amplify over the western U.S. Providing enough 
subsidence to bring more sunshine than yesterday. South or 
southwest winds in the 10 to 15 mph range will provide enough 
mixing to push temperatures into the 70s. Late in the afternoon 
and into the evening, a shortwave trough well ahead of the main 
cold front will produce rain over the Cascade crest and spread 
clouds into north central Washington. The models have trended 
drier tonight as this shortwave moves through eastern Washington 
and north Idaho, and precipitation chances have been decreased 
below 20 percent. 

Saturday and sunday: a deep surface low is expected to move inland 
on Saturday morning along the central British Columbia coast. A 
tight southerly surface pressure gradient will develop by mid day 
as the surface low moves through b.C. Into Alberta. Look for 
increasingly mild and breezy conditions Saturday afternoon ahead 
of the cold front. Rain chances should peak with the passage of 
the cold front Saturday evening, and our winds will likely peak 
Saturday evening as well. By Sunday, the front will be well east 
of the area. Winds should subside as pressure gradients relax 
through the day. 

* Winds: on Saturday afternoon, sustained south or southwest winds 
of 15 to 20 mph will be common over the Columbia Basin, West 
Plains, and Palouse with late day gusts to 30 mph. The NAM and 
GFS are in good agreement that the cold front will cross the 
Cascades during the early to mid evening hours as the surface 
low emerges east of the Canadian rockies in central Alberta. The 
southwesterly gradient will likely favor the windiest conditions 
over the West Plains and upper Columbia Basin in the evening and 
spread over the Palouse through the night. The tightest pressure 
gradient and best momentum aloft won't arrive until after 
sunset, so we may not mix the 40-50kt winds from 850-800mb to 
the surface. However, exposed terrain above 2500 feet around 
Spokane and Pullman could experience gusts of 45 mph or more 
Saturday evening/night. Any convective downdrafts from showers 
could produce strong gusts over the Idaho Panhandle as well. 

* Blowing dust: the light rain we received on Thursday over the 
Columbia Basin, Palouse, and West Plains may limit our blowing 
dust potential. Warm temperatures today may dry the soil 
somewhat, so we may need to add some dust to the forecast 
Saturday evening. Fortunately, the strongest winds will not 
arrive until the evening hours. Cooler evening temperatures and 
the tendency for humidity to rise overnight should minimize the 
impact of blowing dust. 

* Precipitation: the strong westerly component of the low/mid- 
level winds with the frontal passage will limit precipitation 
amounts with this frontal system. The front will also be moving 
quickly. The rain shadow east of the Cascades will likely limit 
rain amount to a few hundredths for our burn scar areas in 
central Washington. The mud slide threat looks very low at this 
time. In general, this front will bring a quarter to a half inch 
of rain to the Cascade crest with less than a tenth of an inch 
elsewhere. The mountains of Shoshone County may be the exception 
Saturday night...especially if convective showers develop along 
the front. 

Sunday night through thursday: next week looks to be relatively 
dry and mild. An upper level ridge will rebound across the inland 
northwest late Sunday and into Monday, although it will be dirty 
with Pacific moisture streaming in as the ridge gradually flattens 
aloft. Could see some sprinkles or light precipitation near the 
Cascade crest and far northern mountains as a weak warm pushes 
north across southern b.C. Temperatures will be mild especially 
across the southern portions of the forecast area meanwhile 
thickening cloud cover may limit the diurnal heating across the 
north. A disturbance will race across southern British Columbia Monday night 
into Tuesday and push a weakening cold front across the region. 
The flow aloft will continue to flatten. Again mainly light 
precipitation is expected across the northern mountains, but 
breezy westerly winds will kick up from the Lee of the Cascades 
into the Columbia Basin. Drier air will arrive by Tuesday as 
temperatures rise slightly. By Wednesday, the upper ridge axis 
would have have retrograded into the Pacific near 130w, while 
another round of Pacific moisture gets entrainined into the flow. 
Expect filtered sunshine to mostly cloudy skies for Wednesday and 
Thursday with the increase of high and mid level clouds, although 
the chance of precipitation looks meager at this time. The storm 
track shifts across southern British Columbia with any activity just brushing 
across the Canadian border. Temperatures are forecast to continue 
about 5-10 degrees above normal. So expect more dry conditions and 
unseasonably mild temperatures for mid October. /Rfox. 


12z tafs: patchy fog will be possible through 17z in the sheltered 
valleys around Sandpoint, Bonners Ferry, Omak, and Winthrop. A 
ragged stratus deck between 2000-3000 feet will be banked against 
the Cascades around Wenatchee and Chelan. The stratus should also 
dissipate by 18z. Elsewhere VFR conditions are expected for the 
next 24 hours under a warm high pressure ridge. /Gkoch
