NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
441 am PDT Wednesday Sep 2 2015 


Synopsis... 
a weak slow moving cold front will bring light showers, breezy winds 
and cooler temperatures to the inland northwest through mid week. 
This cooler and showery weather pattern will linger into the 
Holiday weekend, especially for southeast Washington and the 
Idaho Panhandle. Drier and warmer weather is expected by early 
next week. 


&& 


Discussion... 
today and tonight: a threat of showers, breezy conditions and 
some thunderstorms across the north will be the main impacts in 
the forecast. There could even Bee some high elevation snow 
tonight, but it is not expected to have any real impacts. First 
this morning a cold front is pushing across eastern Washington. It will 
continue into the Panhandle and southeast Washington this morning. The 
parent upper trough begins to pivot toward the coast between late 
morning and afternoon with a 100kt+ jet streak rounding its east 
side bisecting the state of Washington. A threat of showers will be found 
within this set-up. However a limiting factor will be the dry slot 
nosing in with that jet streak. 


The overall best chance of precipitation will be near the Cascade 
crest, the northern mountains, as well as The Blues through 
central Panhandle. The late morning to afternoon also comes with 
increasing instability, especially across the north and especially 
toward the Canadian border. This will support the threat of 
isolated to locally scattered thunderstorms. The best agreement 
with respect to instability lays across areas north to northeast 
of Republic such as Curlew, Danville and Laurier. Models show 
SBCAPE values between 100 to 400 j/kg. Nothing too extreme, but 
this is where confidence is highest. A chance will be found east 
into northern Pend Oreille and boundary counties as well. 


The upper Columbia Basin, the Spokane/c'da area, Palouse and l-c 
valley will also have some threat of showers. However overall 
precipitation amounts in these locations looks rather light, with 
models generally showing trace amounts to less than 0.05 inches. 
The further away from the Idaho Panhandle one travels into the 
Columbia Basin the thought is sprinkles will be more likely and 
the threat appears will decrease in these areas from the west as 
the day progresses. A possible foil to this thinking is a slower 
intrusion of the dry slot and the front becoming hung up farther 
west than models suggest. Additionally, some guidance suggests 
some spotty shower activity in some weak instability just behind 
the front and near the jet streak. 


Going into this evening and overnight the broader precipitation 
threat will wane with the loss of daytime heating. There will be 
two general locations where the threat will continue throughout 
the night. The first will be from The Blues through the higher 
Palouse and central Panhandle in the vicinity of the stalled front 
and the moisture that converges along it. The highest risk in this 
region will be from the Camas Prairie to southeast Shoshone County 
(southeast into the clearwaters). The second area will be near the 
Cascades into northern Ferry County, closer to the parent trough 
and continuing elevated instability. Several shortwave are 
embedded in the flow around that trough and one pivots across the 
Cascades and north-northeast through tonight. There may even be 
enough instability to keep at least an isolated thunderstorm 
threat going through the night too but the risk it too remote at 
this time to include. 


However we will be seeing the potential for high elevation snow. 
Most of the day and evening snow levels remain generally above 
6000 feet and in most cases above 7000 feet. Yet late tonight into 
the overnight snow levels drop to between 5500 to 6000 feet near 
the Cascades through central Washington. Still this is generally above 
most passes, save for perhaps near the north Cascades Highway on 
sr20 and any higher elevation areas. 


Winds will be breezy and gusty with this system as well. A 
tightening gradient, increased mixing with the front and we have 
some ingredients for the winds increasing. They should be on the 
increase this morning, with the most notable gusts in the 
afternoon, before abating in the evening. 


Temperatures are expected to be below normal today and tonight. 
The main note regarding temperatures is the potential for some 
patches of near freezing temperatures in some of the more 
sheltered valleys across northeast Washington/north Idaho. Even if it doesn't 
drop to freezing some plants may be sensitive to temperatures 
below 40. Temperatures may even be colder going into Friday 
morning. /J. Cote' 


Thursday through Tuesday...latest models are converging on a 
solution which drops the next upper level closed low down coastal 
Washington and Oregon and into the Great Basin during the Thursday 
through Saturday period then kicks it eastward through Idaho and 
into Montana on Sunday. Ramifications of this consensus include a 
smaller chance of precipitation for the rest of the work week as 
the upper low drags a very dry surface Canadian Continental 
air mass into the region through the northern gaps starting late 
Thursday. This argues for breezy and dry conditions in the 
Okanogan Valley Friday and Saturday although temperatures will 
remain below normal. Still...even in this cool air mass the relative humidity may 
be low enough and winds breezy enough to flirt with critical 
values for red flag conditions in this fire ravaged area. 


The other ramification will be a smaller chance of any 
precipitation on Thursday and Friday than previously forecast. The 
Cascades look to have the best chance for showers both days with a 
small chance of some afternoon and early evening thunderstorms as 
well as the cold pool aloft transits southward through the 
western zones. 


Later on for the Holiday weekend there is some uncertainty as 
model details begin to diverge. The ejecting upper low will pass 
to the south of the forecast area through central Idaho Saturday 
with the European model (ecmwf) in particular forming a deformation region of 
potential showers or even light stratiform rain over the 
southeastern zones and possibly penetrating well into the entire 
Idaho Panhandle and eastern Washington. The GFS is not as 
aggressive with this scenario...however given the upcoming end of 
Summer outdoor activity Holiday it is prudent to at least begin to 
introduce this potentially wet scenario to the forecast. 


Farther out the models come into loose agreement with passing the 
weakening upper low well to the east on Sunday maybe with some 
residual showers in the Panhandle mountains but otherwise dry. 
Confidence is low farther out. There may very well be a weak 
follow-on short wave on or about Monday for a threat of mountain 
showers followed by a short wave ridge Tuesday for drying and 
warming. /Fugazzi

Aviation... 
12z tafs: a cold front pushes into eastern Washington this morning, stalls 
over near the central Panhandle to southeast WA, while an upper 
trough moves. This will bring a threat of showers to most taf 
sites, with the best risk along the stalled front near puw/lws 
later this afternoon/evening. The best overall risk for showers 
will be near the Cascades and mountains, with the potential for 
some thunderstorms in the northern mountains. The front will bring 
breezy conditions, with speeds increasing through the morning and 
early afternoon, before abating after 01-03z. /J. Cote'
