NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
1133 am PDT Monday Jul 28 2014 


Synopsis... 
hot temperatures and dry weather will continue through midweek. 
Thunderstorms chances will increase during the latter portion of 
the work week as monsoonal moisture overspreads the inland 
northwest. 




&& 


Discussion... 
rest of today...strong ridge continues to build over the inland 
northwest today. This will result in hot temperatures for all 
locations with triple digit heat expected across portions of the 
lc valley...lower Columbia Basin...and Okanogan Valley. The 
warmest temperatures will generally coincide with the heat 
advisory which was issued earlier for the lower Columbia Basin and 
lc valley. The heat will also feature low relative humidity values 
for all locations. Fortunately, we only foresee light winds 
across the region for this afternoon. 


Aside from these issues...there is a weak disturbance pushing 
through southeast Washington at this time. There is a pool of mid-level 
moisture and a little instability associated with said feature. 
According to radar and local observations...some of this was 
manifesting itself as sprinkles. Based on extrapolation and fine 
temporal resolution model data, we would expect most of this to 
shift into Montana and south of the Camas Prairie by 2 PM. 


&& 


Aviation... 
18z tafs: high pressure ridge will deliver generally clear skies 
and VFR conditions to all sites through 18z Tue. Main weather will 
be associated with a weak disturbance tracking northeast through 
southeast Washington and the southern Idaho Panhandle. This could bring some 
temporary mid level cigs to puw and lws and perhaps a sprinkle 
through 21z...but most of that will occur east of these sites. Fx
