NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
1032 PM PDT Monday Jul 6 2015 


Synopsis.... 
after a warm and dry conditions, another weather system drops in 
from Canada Tuesday, with a threat of showers and thunderstorms 
across, largely across the north. Drier conditions return around 
mid-week, before additional shower and thunderstorm chances 
return toward Friday into next weekend. 


&& 


Discussion... 
current forecast on track as mid and high level clouds move into 
the northern zones overnight. May see a few high based showers, 
but the better chance for any will brush far north Idaho late 
tonight. Rfox. 


Rest of tonight through Tuesday night....the weather during this 
period will revolve around a shortwave trough currently dropping 
southeast through southern British Columbia. This feature is 
expected to drop toward NE corner of Washington and the northern 
tip of the Idaho Panhandle overnight. As it does we expect to see 
increasing amounts of mid level moisture and instability track 
into that area. Model soundings in the vicinity of this feature 
suggest we will see some of this instability and moisture develop 
into showers late tonight and persist into Tuesday morning. The 
soundings also suggest a very small chance for a few lightning 
strikes due to elevated instability near the Canadian border 
toward morning but the threat isn't great enough to place in the 
forecasts at this time. A much better threat of showers and 
thunderstorms will arrive during the afternoon and evening hours 
as a more robust upper level shortwave tracks south across the 
Canadian border. This shortwave will lower temperatures in the 
upper atmosphere while warming and moistening the lower 
atmosphere, a prime recipe for thunderstorms provided sufficient 
lifting. And it looks like this shortwave will provide the 
necessary lift. So the pieces are in place for a decent 
thunderstorm event. Most of them will likely occur over NE 
Washington and north Idaho based on the best potential instability 
combined with the best upper level forcing from the positioning of 
the jet stream. However the threat will likely extend west toward 
the Cascades as well. Looks like most of the thunderstorms will 
initiate by early afternoon near the Canadian border and spread 
south through the evening. Based on wind profiles and instability 
parameters we don't expect to see any strong thunderstorms however 
based on elevated cloud bases and rather dry conditions below 
there will be a chance of some moderate thunderstorm outflow 
winds. Also based on the dry sub-cloud layer we don't expect to 
see widespread heavy rains, however most of the storms will 
produce some rainfall. The other threat will be for new fire 
starts based on the extremely dry fuels. The question is how much 
lightning will we see. Based on the instability parameters it 
looks like most will occur over extreme NE Washington and the 
northern Idaho Panhandle. The Fire Weather Watch still seems like 
a good call, however in an effort to coordinate with neighboring 
offices will leave the watch going rather than upgrading to a red 
flag warning. 


The threat of thunder should Ware rapidly overnight as the 
shortwave begins to shear and stretch as it moves toward the 
Washington/Oregon border. Fx. 


Wednesday through monday: after a relative lull, the active 
pattern continues with the return of the threat of showers and 
thunderstorms. Temperatures will remain above normal much of the 
period, but look for a relative cool-down toward the weekend. And 
beyond next Monday models suggest perhaps a return to more 
seasonal temperatures. 


First on Wednesday a front stalls over the southern Idaho Panhandle 
and northeast or. Behind it is drier air and broader subsidence. 
So for the most part the region will be dry. Yet there will be a 
small risk of showers or T-storms along that boundary during the 
afternoon near The Blues, Camas Prairie and far southeast Shoshone 
County. There is the off-chance for shower showers near the 
Cascades of Chelan County in the northeast flow, but confidence is 
rather low and there is not real mention of it other than here. 


Secondly on Thursday low pressure off the California coast moves toward 
the western Great Basin. So the flow over our area turns east- 
southeast, the stalled front edges north and some weak mid-level 
disturbances lift in. And some moisture starts to expand north. So 
look for a better threat of showers and thunderstorms over the 
southeast County Warning Area and near the Cascades. Clouds will begin to increase 
elsewhere. 


Thirdly from Friday through Monday the pattern changes. The 
former California low stretches toward the High Plains and a trough 
deepening in the Pacific approaches the coast. The flow turns 
southwest and a better fetch of moisture rides in, with pwats 
rising to an inch or so. Systems passing in this pattern will have 
increased instability and the aforementioned moisture to bring the 
increasing threat of showers and thunderstorms across the region. 
Models are not in the best agreement regarding the timing the 
individual shortwaves that will bring in these precipitation 
chances. At this time models suggest a boundary passing Friday or 
Friday night and then a shortwave riding in on a modest jet streak 
Sunday appear to be the catalyst. 


In general look for the best threat of showers and thunderstorms 
each day around the mountain zones, especially in the afternoon 
and evening hours. As for the valley and basin zones loose 
agreement suggests Friday/Friday night and Sunday may be the 
periods with a better threat of showers and thunderstorms with the 
passage of the aforementioned features. As said, there is some 
disagreement on timing so stay tuned as things come into better 
focus. Regardless of timing, given the amount of moisture and the 
potential instability models depict at this point i'd be hard- 
pressed to say that there will be no chance in the valley/basin 
areas. 


With the increasing moisture during this time it is expected the 
showers and thunderstorms will be wetter. So while there will 
still be some concern for wildfire ignitions from any lightning, 
the overall threat appears smaller compared to the current 
pattern. Another issue we will monitor is the potential for 
localized flooding, especially around any burn scars from last 
years or even this years newer wildfires. This will be due to the 
potential for wetter and potentially slower-moving or training 
storms. /J. Cote'

Aviation... 
06z tafs: VFR conditions will continue through the forecast 
period. Mid and high level moisture will stream in from the north 
as a weak disturbance brushes along the Canadian border overnight 
and dig south over north Idaho on Tuesday. This will help increase 
cloud cover and bring a threat of convection to the north and east 
of the kgeg-kcoe corridor. May see a few high based showers early 
this morning, but instability will increase after 21z with a 
better chance of afternoon surface based convection. Winds will 
be light and diurnally driven overnight and into Tuesday morning. 
Expect a push of north- northeast winds by Tuesday afternoon with 
higher gusts. Convection and winds will taper off after 03z. Rfox.
