NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
254 PM PDT Monday Oct 20 2014 


Synopsis... 


A cold front is very slowly approaching the inland northwest which 
will bring an end to the above average temperatures. Not all areas 
will see rain with the passage of this first front but a series of 
very moist systems will continue to impact the region through the 
week...bringing widespread rain and lowering snow levels to the 
higher peaks. The active pattern will continue through the weekend 
with the potential for heavy rain continuing as moisture 
associated with former typhoons makes its way toward the Pacific 
northwest early next week. 


Discussion... 
tonight through Wednesday night... 
overview and model discussion: an upper level ridge of high 
pressure is positioned over the central US ... between two 
long wave trofs. The feature we are concerned with is a massive 
trof over the northeastern Pacific with multiple shortwaves 
embedded in the ancticyclonic circulation. The parent low is 
located well northeast of the inland northwest...near the Alaska 
Peninsula. Closer to home is the first of many shortwaves that 
will bring an end to the early Fall weather and replace it with 
more normal late Fall weather. The frontal boundary 
associated with this first trof is located near the Washington/or coast 
and will slowly move inland tonight thanks to a potent vort Max 
rounding the base of the trof. Showers are evident along and west 
of the Cascades with high clouds having a hard time progressing 
east...giving eastern Washington and northern Idaho one last 
mostly sunny and near 70 degree day. 


Models have had a hard time capturing the very slow forward 
progress of this frontal boundary. The poor initialization is 
leading to a difference in model solutions in the very short 
term...mainly regarding the precipitation potential overnight in 
the southeastern portion of our area. The NAM is the outlier which 
is bringing a narrow band of heavy precipitation late this evening 
over Adams and Lincoln counties...with a maximum of .50 inch of 
water...while the sref, GFS, and European model (ecmwf) are all indicating precip 
amounts closer to from a trace to .10. Quite the difference for 
the first 12 hours of a forecast! 


Will have to watch how the radar trends this evening but at this 
time we are discounting the NAM and leaning heavily toward the 
sref, GFS, and European model (ecmwf) solution. The more common solution focuses 
the lift and subsequent heavier precipitation amounts mainly in 
pendleton's forecast area...but it will clip Asotin, Nez Perce, 
and Lewis counties. No widespread flooding is expected but 
certainly localized standing water could lead to some minor issues 
if these counties do see the .50 plus that is possible overnight. 


Beyond tonight and continuing into Wednesday, the models are in 
better agreement with the large scale features adding to our 
confidence. 


Weather highlights through Wednesday night: the only other 
potential impact of note is lowering snow levels over the 
Bitterroot Mountain range with expected precipitation overnight. 
Snow levels will stay above our highest passes in the region so no 
travel impacts are expected. While we don't expect to see snow 
sticking to the ground, it's hard to rule out seeing snow 
accumulating on the highest peaks and maybe snow briefly mixing 
with rain at our highest Road passes. Again, no impacts are 
expected at this point. 


The remainder of this period will consist of a brief drying period 
before the next much more vigorous system arrives (we'll call it 
storm 2). The arrival of storm 2 is preliminarily scheduled for 
late Tuesday night along the Cascade crest...spreading to the 
Idaho Panhandle by Wednesday afternoon. The initial surge of 
heaviest precipitation will remain over Chelan, Okanogan, Douglas, 
and Ferry counties. The impressive fetch of subtropical moisture 
being tapped by this low pressure system will raise precipitable 
waters values across the region 150-200% of normal. Localized 
flooding will be more of a concern with storm 2...especially 
considering the recent burn scars. 36-48 hour local rainfall 
totals with storm 2 could exceed 2 near the Cascade crest with 
1 likely over much of the northern third of Washington and the 
Idaho Panhandle. 
Ab 


Thursday through Monday...cool and unsettled weather will dominate 
the large scale weather pattern as a Pacific trough sends a series 
of weather impulses our way. The region will be in moist southwest 
flow aloft or Thursday and Friday. A strong jet stream will propel 
a fetch of deep moisture of tropical origins toward the pacnw 
coast. While most of the forecast area will see a decent amount of 
precipitation from an extended period of moist and unstable 
southwest flow on Thursday and Friday along with some high 
elevation snow for the Cascades, the inland northwest will see the 
full benefit of this moisture with a strong warm front pushing 
north into the region Friday night into Saturday. The strong warm 
air advection associated with this warm front will keep 
temperatures rather mild overnight Friday. In fact, some of the 
southern valley locations like Wenatchee and George may only cool 
a few degrees from friday's Max temps. A cold front will sweep 
through the region Saturday, followed by the passage of the upper 
trough Saturday night. We may see a brief break in the wet weather 
on Sunday into Monday before the next Pacific storm approaches 
with another round of valley rain and mountain snow. /Kelch

Aviation... 
18z tafs: a slow moving cold front will produce light rain at 
keat this afternoon. This front will not push into extreme eastern 
Washington and the Idaho Panhandle until tonight. This will result in some 
light rain for kgeg, ksff, kcoe, kpuw, and klws. MVFR ceilings/visible 
will be possible for these taf sites late tonight into Tuesday 
morning. Fog will be possible for the morning hours on Tuesday at 
keat. This will be dependent on how fast the mid level clouds will 
clear out late tonight, which is still a bit uncertain at this 
time. /Svh
