Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
1025 PM PDT Monday Sep 15 2014 


Synopsis... 
unseasonably warm temperatures will be across the inland northwest 
through Wednesday as high pressure remains over the region. A weak 
cold front will likely arrive on Thursday cooling temperatures 
closer to normal. There will also be a chance for light mountain showers 
Thursday into Friday morning with the passing front. Warm and dry 
conditions will likely return for the weekend.

Discussion... 
tonight and tuesday: high pressure will be over the region for the 
next 24 hours, although it will weaken slightly as a shortwave off 
the Oregon coast pivots into it. A band of high level moisture 
associated with the shortwave will sweep in from the south 
overnight into Tuesday. The lift is weak especially as the 
shortwave falls apart as it tracks into the upper ridge axis 
position. Most of this moisture will be above 10k ft, so the 
threat of any precipitation will be minor. But the best if any 
chance will be across the Blue Mountains Tuesday morning and then 
into central Idaho Panhandle by Tuesday afternoon. Otherwise 
anticipate some areas of virga or isolated sprinkles with the 
cloud band across southeast Washington and southern Idaho 
Panhandle. Meanwhile, low level temperatures will continue to 
rise, about 2 to 4 degrees warmer on Tuesday. This would make 
Tuesday the warmest day of the week. Winds will be light and 
mostly east/northeast tonight into Tuesday morning, with southwest 
winds creeping into the southern Columbia Basin and Palouse by 
Tuesday afternoon. /Rfox 


Tuesday night through Thursday night...in the big picture a 
splitting trough will move into the eastern Pacific by Tuesday 
afternoon. By Wednesday afternoon the southern portion of the 
split closes into a cut-off low with the best moisture and 
dynamics staying well south of our area. What this will do is drag 
a weakening trough through southern b.C. Wednesday night and 
Thursday with best forcing staying in central b.C. There will be 
some mid level moisture that will move into the area Wednesday 
night and Thursday. 


For Tuesday night the models keep showing a weak wave moving 
out of northeast Oregon and just brushing our southeast zones. 
I kept some very low end pops through the night, but am far from 
impressed and thinking at this just may be some increasing mid- 
level clouds. 


Wednesday night through Thursday night...slight chance to chance 
pops over the Cascades Wednesday night...then the chance for 
precipitation will track across the northern mountains and Idaho 
Panhandle for Thursday and Thursday night. Precipitation as mainly 
showers... however there appears to be enough mid level 
instability to introduce a few lighting strikes for the far 
northeast mountains and Idaho Panhandle zones late in the day 
Thursday. Confidence is much better for some light shower than any 
lightning. Any precipitation should be a tenth or less. A slight 
up tick in the southwest winds can also be expected Thursday 
afternoon with sustained winds around 10mph. /Tobin 


Friday afternoon through Tuesday morning: the exiting mid-week 
trough will be replaced by another ridge of high pressure for the 
weekend. While the ridge looks to keep things pleasant all 
weekend, another trough will approach early next week. 


The ridge should bring warming temperatures, with afternoon 
readings topping out 10 to 15 degrees above normal (widespread 
80s). The approach of another trough off the Pacific northwest 
coastline should begin to bring those temperatures back towards 
normal, but will still be 3 to 7 degrees above (mid/upper 70s). TY

Aviation... 
06z tafs: increasing moisture from the south will result in some mid 
to high level cloud cover above 12 kft agl. These clouds may 
produce very light showers or sprinkles at klws and kpuw this 
morning, but there is a better chance of just some virga. Skies 
will remain hazy due to smoke from fires in central Washington and or. 
This may result reduced vis down into MVFR category at kpuw. /Svh
