Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Spokane Washington 308 am PST sun Feb 7 2016 Synopsis... a weak upper level disturbance will produce clouds over the inland northwest today. Strong high pressure will develop tonight and persist into Wednesday. Dry and mild conditions are expected for the first half of the week. The chance for light rain will return Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. && Discussion... Today and tonight: a weak upper level disturbance will over-top a high pressure ridge today. Bands of clouds will accompany this weak feature. As of 230 am, the National Weather Service radar mosaic was detecting rain showers off the coast of the olympic peninsula, and by mid to late morning some of this light precipitation should reach the northern Cascades. On whole, precipitation should be weakening it over-tops the 500mb ridge. There shouldn't be much left of the showers after crossing the Cascades. Some flurries and sprinkles have been added to the forecast for the counties along the Canadian border. Elsewhere, light winds and increasing clouds will hinder warming this afternoon. High temperatures have been lowered a bit. Skies should clear this evening from west to east as the upper level disturbance slides into Montana. Strong mid-level warming under our building ridge will produce a strong temperature inversion, especially over central Washington. Mountains will remain relatively mild with cold air settling into the valleys. There is a good chance that we will see more fog tonight in the valleys of northeast and north central Washington with the strengthening inversion and surface dewpoints slowly recovering following Friday night's strong front. Monday and tuesday: the temperature forecast Monday and Tuesday will be tough. Warming aloft will produce a very strong temperature inversion. Mountain ridges and mid-slopes will have the potential to be in the 40s and low 50s Monday and Tuesday while lowlands could remain in the 30s and low 40s. A light easterly pressure gradient will produce enough mixing to keep the southern Idaho Panhandle and the Palouse free of fog and low clouds. Similar weather patterns this time of year produce high temperatures in the 50s for places like St Maries, Pullman, Lewiston, Pomeroy, and LaCrosse. Afternoon temperatures in the upper 40s to near 50 aren't out of the question for Spokane, Coeur D'Alene, Davenport, and Moses Lake. The presence of fog (and how long it lingers Monday and tuesday) will determine how warm temperatures get. /Gkoch Wednesday through saturday: models are in good agreement of an upper ridge moving east of the area for mid week as an upper trough slowly advances towards the area from the west. Overall models have trended slower with the trough with generally dry weather expected Wednesday through Friday. Although a weak wave tracking across could produce a few showers Wednesday night into Thursday. With the upper ridge axis to the east and an upper trough to the west of the region...this will place the inland northwest in a mild southwest flow through Friday with above normal temperatures. Late Friday into Saturday the latest 00z runs of the GFS and European model (ecmwf) track the upper trough inland with a cold front passage. This will likely bring a round of light to locally moderate precipitation but with some timing uncertainty pop's were limited to chance. Snow levels come down behind the cold front and could see snow showers returning to the mountains. Jw && Aviation... 06z tafs: a building ridge aloft and weak high pressure building over the region will create dry and benign conditions for the next 24 hours. In spite of light northeast winds, temperature/dewpoint spreads at kgeg/ksff/kcoe are just 3 degrees at 06z and could lead to fog or low stratus overnight. Otherwise, expect VFR conditions at remaining taf sites through 06z Monday. /Ek && Preliminary point temps/pops...
