NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
258 am PST Tuesday Feb 9 2016 


Synopsis... 
strong high pressure will persist into Wednesday. Dry and mild 
conditions are expected for the first half of the week. A more 
progressive and unsettled pattern will return late this week 
bringing a chance of light rain Thursday in the Cascades and over 
the rest of the region Friday through the weekend. 


&& 


Discussion... 
today and tonight...extremely strong upper level ridge will 
remain fixed over the forecast area once again this period. 
Differences between yesterday and today will be subtle with the 
main change being slight warming. This warming is the result of 
a slight eastward shift of the upper level ridge. Yesterday the 
ridge was centered over the western half of Washington while today 
it's expected to crawl toward the Washington/Idaho border. As a result we 
will see low-level temperatures warm a couple degrees vs. 
Yesterday, at least at the 850 mb level. How much of that warming 
translates to the ground is once again a tough question to answer 
as the mixing potential through the boundary layer will be fairly 
weak. This means the inversions could be just a little bit 
stronger than yesterday and any fog or stratus which forms could 
be a little tougher to break up. As of 2am, the fog and stratus 
was minimal, however there were a few patches evident on the fog 
product, which is a little more than we saw yesterday at this 
time. Nonetheless the coverage was rather minimal and as a result 
we expect most locations to see a relatively warm and sun-filled 
day. Records for warmth could be set as the 850 mb temp anomaly is 
at the 99th percentile or higher over most of the region. We 
suspect the most likely areas to break records will be over southeast 
Washington and NC Idaho due to this warm air aloft being paired 
with moderate easterly (or downslope) winds. High temperatures in 
this region will surge well into the 50s and it wouldn't be 
entirely surprising to see a lower 60 appear. For tonight we are 
looking for more of the same with dry weather prevailing. Once 
again the inversions will be strong and we expect increased 
saturation through the boundary layer and a good likelihood of 
increased fog and stratus coverage. Where it will form again is a 
low confidence forecast, but based on the wind patterns we suspect 
most will occur near the Cascades, northern Columbia Basin and 
across the northern valleys. 


Wednesday and Wednesday night...the upper level ridge will begin 
to weaken as an upper level shortwave and occluded front nears 
the coast. For Wednesday we don't expect to see any impact other 
than an increasing cloud trend through the day. Any fog which 
forms Tuesday night could be tough to break up with the reduced 
solar insolation potential. Temperatures will remain quite warm 
with more 50s expected for the southeast corner of the forecast area with 
40s for most other valley locations. The front is expected to 
approach the Cascades overnight and could spread a small chance of 
precipitation. A isentropic analysis suggests this front will 
weaken quickly as it passes into the strong upper level ridge. 
Nonetheless it will likely bring some light precipitation into the 
Cascades late. The precipitation type could prove tough depending 
on when it occurs. If it's late in the night it could either be 
snow or very light freezing rain. If its during the evening it 
would likely fall as light rain. Either way the coverage should be 
fairly limited and the amounts will be quite light. It's Worth 
noting that the trends for this system seem to be getting wetter 
at least according to the last several runs of the sref, so pops 
may need to be raised a bit for future forecasts. Fx 


Thursday through Monday...the models have come into better 
agreement in the extended forecast period. An upper trough off the 
coast will send a warm front across the region Thursday into 
Thursday night. Most of the deep layer moisture will be aimed at 
the Cascades stretching into NE Washington and the north Idaho 
Panhandle. Models have trended wetter with this feature and pop's 
have been increased. Then the cold front swings through late 
Friday afternoon into early Saturday bringing a round of valley 
rain and mountain snow. Post frontal westerly flow on Saturday 
combined with mid level instability as 500mb temps cool to -30c 
will lead to showers...with a rain shadow in the Lee of the 
Cascades likely keeping the Okanogan Valley...Wenatchee area...and 
Columbia Basin generally dry. Snow levels lower to 3000-4000 feet 
so snow showers should return to the mountain passes. Then on 
Sunday into Monday models show a very mild southwest flow 
developing with an atmospheric river of subtropical moisture aimed 
at the area. Snow levels rise to 6000-7000 feet after briefly 
starting Sunday morning as low as 2000 feet. Strong downslope 
flow off the Cascades will limit precip amounts for most of 
central and eastern Washington. Locations near the Cascade crest 
and Idaho Panhandle could see moderate to heavy rain...although 
duration of this atmospheric river carries quite a bit of 
uncertainty and will be something to monitor with future model 
runs. Jw 
&& 


Aviation... 12z tafs: a strong ridge of high pressure will remain 
over the inland northwest through this period. The ridge will likely 
preserve VFR conditions over all the taf sites through the day and 
into the evening. Latest fog product was detecting some fog in the 
valleys mainly north and east of the taf sites. If any fog formed 
this morning at a taf site the most likely location would be over 
sff and perhaps Coe due to proximity to nearby water and a stratus 
deck about 15 miles southeast of Coe. Based on webcams, the fog 
which has formed is quite shallow and should mix out before midday. 
For tonight the ridge will persist and the fog coverage will likely 
be greater than it is currently. Whether or not it impacts any taf 
site is a tough question to answer. We placed it in the forecast for 
most of the locations save lws and puw after 06z but kept conditions 
as VFR or MVFR. Model guidance is quite variable with the placement 
of fog and stratus and thus our confidence is low. Fx
