Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Fire Weather Warning  Statement as of 10:48 am PDT on July 4, 2015


... Red flag warning in effect from 5 PM this afternoon to 1 PM
PDT Sunday for wind and low humidity for northeastern mountains...

The National Weather Service in Spokane has issued a red flag
warning for wind and low humidity... which is in effect from 5 PM
this afternoon to 1 PM PDT Sunday.

* Affected area: fire weather zone 686 East Washington northeast
(zone 686).

* Timing: north winds will increase this afternoon but generally
remain below critical thresholds. Afternoon instability and low
humidities will be critical could enhance fire growth. The main
threat for winds will come with a dry cold front passage which
arrives 1800 - 2200 PDT then gusty winds continue into Sunday
morning. Very dry air behind the front will bring the potential
to keep humidities near critical thresholds until Sunday
morning. Better recoveries will be possible in Pend Oreille
County.

* Winds: Ridgetop winds: north 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 35
mph... becoming northeast after 0100 PDT. Valley winds 8 to 14
mph with sporadic gusts to 30 mph possible.

* Relative humidities: 11 to 18 percent in the valleys early in
the evening... recovering 25-40 percent Sunday morning. In the
mountains... 18 to 28 percent in the evening recovering 30 to 40
percent early Sunday morning.

* Impacts: rapid fire spread is possible with existing fires or
new fire starts in the area.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A red flag warning means that critical fire weather conditions
are either occurring now... or will shortly. A combination of
strong winds... low relative humidity... and warm temperatures will
create extreme fire growth potential.

Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
237 PM PDT Sat Jul 4 2015 


Synopsis.... 
hot and dry weather will be featured for the Independence day 
weekend. Saturday night into Sunday winds will shift to the north 
and increase as a front sags in from Canada. Aside from isolated 
shower chances toward the Idaho Panhandle, conditions looking dry 
and warm into the first half of next week. A slight chance of 
showers and thunderstorms returns late next week. 




&& 


Discussion... 
tonight through saturday: the inland northwest will be in a west to 
northwest flow through the middle of next week. This will be 
accompanied by the occasional shortwave passage with breezy to 
windy conditions and minor shower chances. Toward later next week 
low pressure off the California coast begins to shift inland, 
bringing the potential for more scattered showers and 
thunderstorms. As a whole the pattern remains dry, with moderating 
but still above normal temperatures. 


Between tonight and Sunday night the first shortwave crosses the 
inland northwest. That feature was dropping across British Columbia this afternoon and 
it'll usher the cold front across the Canadian border this 
evening. This will lead to strengthening northerly winds through 
the evening into Sunday. Just in time to heighten the concern 
around the Fourth of July evening, speeds will be or rise into in 
the breezy category. Directions turn north-northwest over much of 
the region Saturday night, before they gradually shift north- 
northeast into Sunday. We will continue to see some channeling and 
higher winds down the Okanogan Valley and out through the Purcell 
Trench. Speeds then begin to subside Sunday afternoon and 
especially Sunday night. 


There is a marginal increase in layer moisture and instability 
along the front and just ahead of the mid-level shortwave, 
especially toward the Idaho/Montana border. Look for a band of clouds to 
drop by Saturday evening into Sunday morning, with slight 
shower/thunderstorm chances along the Idaho/Montana border. For Sunday 
afternoon shower and thunderstorm chances will continue across 
portions of the lower Panhandle, including southeast Shoshone 
County and possibly toward the Camas Prairie. However in that 
latter region confidence is very low. In general, however, a 
reinforcing shot of drier air starts to spread down from Canada 
overnight into Sunday just on the heels of the mid-level 
shortwave. So most of the region will stay precipitation-free. 


Between Monday night and Tuesday night the second substantial 
shortwave drops through. This system carries slightly more 
moisture and instability and overall has a better threat of 
showers and thunderstorms. Some clouds increase Monday night, 
with the threat for a few showers nudging toward the northern 
Panhandle. The better chances develop across the northern 
mountains through northern Panhandle going into Tuesday 
afternoon, before waning through the evening and overnight. 


From Wednesday to Saturday the pattern begins to evolve a bit, 
with low pressure off the California coast migrates inland through the end 
of the week. Some instability wraps around the mountains, while 
the deeper Columbia Basin remains relatively stable. Where models 
disagree is over whether how much energy coming around that 
incoming low drifts north into our region to bring at least an 
isolated shower and thunderstorm threat. Through Thursday most 
models keep the threat south of the region of just into our 
blues/Camas Prairie. The GFS brings chances into the Cascades by 
Thursday, but for now this seems an outlier. By next Friday into 
Saturday better chances come to the southeast Washington and the lower 
Panhandle and move up along the Idaho/Montana border, with a few solutions 
wrapping some threat back across the northern Washington mountains. 
Overall look for an increasing threat going into the end of next 
week. /J. Cote'

Aviation... 
00z tafs: a cold front sags in later Saturday evening, with a few 
more middle to high clouds. A more notable feature will be 
strengthening winds at some taf sites, especially away from 
puw/lws. The first increase is expected this evening, followed by 
a second surge late Saturday night/Sunday morning. Speeds near 15 
to 25kts with gusts toward 30 to 35kts will be possible, 
especially toward Coe and mwh with that second surge. Winds are 
expected to slowly decrease later in the day Sunday, but gusts 
toward 20 to 25kts will be possible even after 18-20z. Expect some 
elevated some layers from regional wildfires. Otherwise taf sites 
will be dry and VFR. /J. Cote' 


&& 




Fire weather... 
red flag warnings continue for portions of the central and 
northeast Washington through early to mid Sunday afternoon. A dry 
cold front is projected to drop southward from Canada between 
6 to 10 PM tonight, which will increase winds and gusts across 
the region. The biggest concern remains gusts of 30 to 40 mph 
and a fair amount dry air coming behind the frontal passage, 
especially at around 850mb (or 4000 feet). Poor recoveries are 
expected in the mountains and potentially the valleys should this 
drier air mix in. We should rise above the critical relative humidity thresholds 
briefly near 5 am but drop again. The strength of the sustained 
winds is expected to wane after about 20-22z (1 to 3 pm). General 
winds improve into the remainder of the week, but rhs values 
remain low through, with continued above normal temperatures. 


There will be slight thunderstorm chances around Tuesday in the 
northern mountains and a broader, but still slight, shower and 
thunderstorm threat arrives toward the end of next week as low 
pressure off the California coast starts to move inland. /J. Cote'
