NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
228 PM PDT Friday Jul 3 2015 


Synopsis.... 
hot and dry weather will be featured into the Independence day 
weekend. Winds will increase as systems move across the upper 
level ridge. This evening and Saturday winds will be increasing 
as a front tries to sag in from Canada, eventually forcing winds 
more from the north. Breezy conditions continue on Sunday. It is 
still looking dry and warm into the beginning of next week. 


&& 


Discussion... 
tonight through friday: the inland northwest will be in a west to 
northwest flow much of this period and the occasional shortwave 
passes, carrying minor shower chances and occasionally breezy 
conditions. Yet as a whole the pattern remains dry with above 
normal temperatures. 


Between tonight and Saturday some minor ripples in the 
west-northwest flow bring a few middle to high clouds, but 
otherwise dry conditions. The first substantial shortwave 
approaches from British Columbia into Saturday and the thermal low over the 
Columbia Basin migrates southeastward. This will increase the 
north-south gradient and increase north to northwesterly winds 
down the Okanogan between tonight and Saturday. Speeds in the 15 
to 25 mph range will be possible here by Saturday morning, with 
gusts in the 35 to 40 mph range possible by afternoon. Meanwhile 
southwest winds will continue across the lower Columbia Basin into 
the Palouse through the Idaho Panhandle. 


Between Saturday night and Sunday night the first substantial 
shortwave drops across the inland northwest. This comes with a marginal 
increase in layer moisture and instability, especially toward the 
Idaho/Montana border and perhaps near the Cascade crest. Look for some 
band of clouds to drop in Saturday night into Sunday morning, 
before some drier air slips in from the north later Sunday. A 
slight threat of showers and thunderstorms skim by the Idaho/Montana 
border Saturday night. Other chances continue across the central 
and lower Idaho Panhandle mountains into the Camas Prairie in the 
developing northwest flow for Sunday afternoon and early evening. 
Otherwise the region will remain dry, with clearing into Monday. 


The more notable and continuing feature will be winds. 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. 


Between Monday night and Tuesday night the second substantial 
shortwave drops through. This system carries more moisture and 
instability and overall has a better threat of showers and 
thunderstorms. However there remains a fair amount of model 
disagreement over just how much of the threat it will bring. Some 
models hold the main chances across the Idaho Panhandle mountains and 
far northeast Washington mountains. Others bring the threat over a broader 
portion of the inland northwest. For now on Monday night clouds increase 
some and the main shower threat comes into the Okanogan Highlands 
through the northern Panhandle. By Tuesday expanding surface-based 
instability and lift with the incoming wave will increase the 
threat of showers and thunderstorms. Still, the overall best 
chances will remain across the mountains. Breezy conditions also 
accompany this shortwave but compared to the weekend winds they 
don't look at strong. 


From Wednesday to Friday model agreement falters. Initially the 
region will remain in north or westerly flow, with a ridge to the 
west and low pressure off the central California coast. That California low 
migrates inland through the end of the week and some instability 
wraps around the mountains, while the deeper Columbia Basin 
remains relatively stable. Where models disagree is over whether 
some 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 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. /J. Cote'

Aviation... 
00z tafs: a dry airmass will allow for VFR conditions at all taf 
sites. Winds will increase in the late afternoon across eat and 
remain occasionally breezy through Saturday. Elevated smoke 
layers from area wildfires will appear as thin mid level clouds 
but surface visibility will not be affected. /J. Cote' 




&& 


Fire weather... 
there are elevated risk for rapidly spreading wildfires through 
the weekend as winds increase. Winds increase locally near the 
Cascades Friday afternoon then across most of central and eastern 
Washington on Saturday. Gusty winds will continue well into Sunday 
with gusty northeast winds spreading into the north Idaho 
Panhandle Saturday night and Sunday.
