Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
339 am PST Tuesday Mar 3 2015 


Synopsis... 
a weather system will exit the region today, diminishing the 
threat of snow showers and gusty winds. Much colder air will move 
in behind this system, with temperatures well below average for 
the middle of the week. A dry period, with moderating temperature 
will follow for the end of the week. 




&& 


Discussion... 
for this morning...high pressure is building in the eastern 
Pacific while a low pressure system digs into Idaho and Montana. 
This puts the inland northwest in a dry northerly flow. Some 
remnants of the vigorous short wave from last evening as well as 
up-sloping flow will keep some low end chance for snow showers 
across the Blue Mountains and the Camas Prairie early this 
morning. Another weak wave is also dropping through British Columbia this 
morning. This wave is almost non-existent on models but can be 
seen on water vapor imagery. Not much in the way of moisture with 
this feature, but enough to hold onto some low end pops for the 
northeast mountains early this morning. The northerly surface 
pressure gradient is slowly decreasing. There are still some gusty 
winds spilling out of the Okanogan Valley into the Waterville 
Plateau and the basin, but these are expected to subside through 
the morning hours. 


For this afternoon through Wednesday night...the ridge of high 
pressure will ease into the Pacific northwest tonight and 
Wednesday...then flatten late Wednesday and Wednesday night as 
another Pacific short wave over tops the ridge. Dry conditions are 
expected from this afternoon through Wednesday night. 850 
temperatures will bottom out this morning and this afternoon, then 
rebound tonight and Wednesday. Temperatures will be 8-12 degrees 
below normal through Wednesday morning, before rebounding 
Wednesday afternoon to near normal. Expect morning lows ranging 
from the lower teens to lower 20s both mornings. Highs will be in 
the mid 30s to mid 40s today, then mid 40s to lower 50s on 
Wednesday. Winds will be variable and under 10 mph. Tobin 


Thursday through Friday night...it looks like the 00z run of the 
European model (ecmwf) blinked. Up until this point the ec had been holding firm 
onto the trough solution that would bring some precipitation to 
the region while the GFS was consistently keeping most precip to 
our northeast. Now the ec has trended toward the drier GFS 
solution. For now we will keep some low end pops in the Idaho 
Panhandle since the GFS shows a shortwave impulse clipping the 
northern Panhandle Friday night. Snow levels will be around 
3500-4500 ft so the passes could see some light accumulations. The 
remainder of the forecast area should remain dry for the end of 
the work week. Cold northerly flow will transition to a more 
northwest trajectory so temperatures will start to trend closer to 
seasonal normals. By Friday night, some of the southern valleys 
could remain above freezing overnight. 


Saturday through Monday...the ridge of high pressure will remain 
over the region, fostering dry conditions with temperatures on a 
warming trend. We may see some springlike temperatures for the 
weekend. Some moisture will ride along the ridge so there is a low 
possibility of some showers but the more likely scenario will be 
an increase in mid and high clouds for the end of the weekend and 
into the start of next week. /Kelch

Aviation... 
12z tafs: a few snow showers may hang around the Camas Prairie 
through 14z...but these should be on the decrease. High pressure 
will strengthen off the coast and put the region in a cool but 
stable and dry north-northwest flow. Expect mainly sunny days and 
cool clear night with VFR conditions at all taf sites. Winds will 
be northerly and under 10kts. Tobin
