Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
341 PM PST sun Nov 23 2014 


Synopsis... 
the north Idaho mountains will continue to receive snow this 
evening, along with the Cascade crest near Stevens Pass. The 
breezy winds will taper off overnight, and Monday will be a 
relatively quiet and chilly day. More rain and heavy mountain snow 
is expected Monday night into Tuesday. A breezy and wet but warm 
Thanksgiving day will give way to a colder weather pattern for the 
Holiday weekend with the mountains receiving several rounds of 
snow. Snow levels will fall to valley floors by the weekend. 


&& 


Discussion... 
tonight and monday: a temporary break in the wet weather can be 
expected starting tonight. A moist and progressive cold front will 
push south and east of Spokane and through north Idaho early this 
evening. Somewhat drier air will move into the region from the 
northwest, although enough residual moisture and favorable 
orographic flow will keep the threat of mountain showers. This is 
especially true along the Cascade crest near Stevens Pass where 
hints of a pscz may linger and then central Idaho Panhandle 
mountains. The only concern for accumulating valley snow would be 
north of Bonners Ferry, but the front will quickly exit this area 
and allow the threat of snow to taper off. Meanwhile, either the 
valley locations will be done with snow for the evening, or have 
warmed up and should just experience rain this evening especially 
across the central and southern Idaho Panhandle. Breezy winds will 
continue into the early evening behind the front with gusts to 30 
mph. These winds will decrease overnight and become light by 
Monday as surface pressure gradients relax. Skies will clear for a 
good chunk of eastern Washington. This coupled with lighter winds, 
wet ground and radiational cooling will lead to rather chilly 
temperatures overnight into the 20s. These sub freezing lows and 
frozen ground will also raise the risk of icy roadways by early 
Monday morning for the commute. Meanwhile, boundary layer moisture 
remains high overnight especially across the Palouse and 
Spokane/Coeur D'Alene area. Given the southwest winds and light 
precipitation today, there is a good chance of seeing stratus and 
patchy fog develop late tonight into Monday morning. This threat 
will expand into the northern and Panhandle valleys as well. By 
Monday, the low cloud deck will gradually erode but daytime 
temperatures will be inhibited by the cloud cover. In addition, 
mid and high level clouds will be on the increase as the next 
weather system approaches. /Rfox. 


Monday night through Thursday morning...no major changes for the 
mid forecast time frame. High pressure will build in the eastern 
Pacific just off the coast. This will put the inland northwest in 
a northwest flow...before coming around to westerly Wednesday 
night. This flow will tap in deep Pacific moisture tap to move 
over the ridge and drop through the region through the period. We 
are looking at an extended wet and unsettled period through early 
Wednesday evening. 


* Precipitation: You Bet. Precipitable water by Tuesday morning 
will approach an inch which is around 270% of normal. Quite wet 
indeed. Isentropic up-Glide will get established over pac northwest 
early Tuesday evening and remain in place through Wednesday 
afternoon. A pretty substantial rain shadow will develop in the 
Lee of the Cascades keeping the lower east slopes and the deep 
basin from getting much more than a few hundredths to maybe a 
tenth of an inch. Outside of the basin the lower elevations and 
northern mountains look to get from .25 to .55 if not slightly 
more. The Panhandle mountains from .50 to .80 and the higher 
elevation of the Cascades from .50 to well over an inch near the 
crest. 


* Snow: a much trickier questions. Southerly surface winds and 
strong warm advection is what will cause the lifting processes to 
squeeze out all the moisture. But this will also raise snow 
levels rapidly Tuesday night. For all of the urban areas snow 
levels will be high enough for precipitation as all rain. The 
tricky parts will be the mountain valleys. By the time the 
heaviest precipitation gets into these areas the snow should 
turn to rain. At this time snow accumulations for all of the 
mountain valleys remain below highlight criteria. An even 
trickier snow forecast will be for northeast Washington and Idaho Panhandle 
mountains above 3-4k feet where the same processes will be at 
work, but it will take a little longer to warm. 24 hour snow 
amounts will range from 6-9 inches which would be the low end of 
an advisory. I will hold off on any highlights...first because 
we already have advisories out for the central Panhandle 
mountains and second there is still a little uncertainty on just 
how fast temperatures will increase. 


* Temperatures and wind: as mentioned above there will be strong 
warm air advection and breezy/gusty south-southwest winds. 
Temperatures on Tuesday will increase with high from the mid 30s 
across the north to the high 40s/lower 50s across the south. 
Then add 4-5 more degrees for Wednesday putting highs well into 
the 40s and 50s. South-southwest of 10-25 mph with gusts 25-35 
mph will be common across the region. /Tobin 




Thanksgiving day through Sunday...another day, another fight 
between medium range models. Why can't we just get along? The 
00z run of the European model (ecmwf) was showing an Arctic front dropping south 
across the forecast area Thanksgiving day, leading to a much 
colder forecast than the more consistent GFS. Surprise...the 12z 
ec is much closer to the GFS solution. There are still differences 
in several of the details but the general consensus is for warmer 
temperatures in southerly flow at least through Turkey day. The 
stream of shortwave energy riding over the forecast area will 
bring some precipitation to the higher elevations of the inland 
northwest but valley precip is one of those pesky details that 
model are having a hard time deciding on, depending on the 
location of the upper jet and associated areas of enhanced lift. 
This jet will be directing a fetch of deep moisture into the 
region with pwats approaching 200 percent of normal. At least 
there is agreement on liquid precip as snow levels will be quite 
high. Breezy southerly winds will keep the atmosphere somewhat 
mixed overnight, keeping low temperatures at or above freezing for 
most of the valleys. The exceptions will be across the extreme 
northern valleys where winds will start to shift to the north and 
colder, drier air will infiltrate the valleys. For Friday and into 
the weekend, models start to fight again. The general trend will 
be a cooldown as an Arctic front slides south but timing and 
southern extent of the very cold air is still being debated.

Aviation... 
00z tafs: radar and satellite trends show the band of 
precipitation associated with a surface front moving southeast at 
a good clip. This will affect the kpuw/klws taf sites for the next 
couple of hours before exiting to the south. Also of note is a 
strong convergence band of precip just to the south of keat. A 
weaker band may bring brief MVFR conditions to keat through 02z. 
Dry/downslope advection from the west/northwest this evening 
should disperse stratus in the evening, but fog and low stratus 
will crop up toward Monday morning from kpuw to kgeg and ksff. The 
next weather system will approach the keat area after 00z Tuesday.
