Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
439 PM PDT Sat Oct 25 2014 


Synopsis... 
tonight into Sunday will be quite windy as a strong low pressure 
system brings rain and gusty conditions to the inland northwest. 
The weather will be relatively quiet on Monday before a moisture 
laden storm system brings more widespread rain on Tuesday. 
A mild autumn pattern is expected to return Wednesday and Thursday 
with the potential of wet weather returning Friday into the 
weekend.

Discussion... 


..windy conditions tonight and Sunday across central and 
southeast Washington... 


Tonight and sunday: a strong surface low lies off the Washington 
coast is running a little deeper than the models indicate with 
gusty southerly winds already across western Washington. This low 
will lift northeastward and arrive in British Columbia overnight. As it does, it 
will push a cold front across the Cascades this evening and into 
north Idaho by early Sunday morning. Prefrontal showers are 
already spreading across the Cascades and into northern mountains. 
There is a small chance of embedded thunderstorms across the 
northern mountains late this afternoon or early evening especially 
on the backside of the cloud shield moving through the region. 
Showers will steadily increase with the arrival of the frontal 
with up to a 0.10" possible in The Lowlands and mountains seeing 
about a 0.25". Although gusty southerly winds have developed 
across the Blue Mountains and Camas Prairie this afternoon with 
good mixing, the main wind event will arrive this evening and 
overnight. The MM5 and hrrr has picked up a quicker onset of the 
gusty winds this evening especially across the southeast 
Washington, most likely due to the deeper surface low and its 
track. Have opted to adjust the Wind Advisory and show an earlier 
onset time with the gusty winds across the upper Garfield/Asotin 
counties and southern Whitman, while keeping the current area 
going for the rest of the Wind Advisory. Will also bump wind 
speeds in the area which may be prolonged especially from 9 PM to 
2 am overnight in this area. Winds look to taper off slightly 
early Sunday morning and loose some of the gustiness, but daytime 
mixing will bring a return of gusty southwest to west winds by 
midday Sunday. Expect overnight lows to remain mild due to the 
wind, cloud cover and precipitation. By Sunday, daytime highs will 
be running 2 to 10 degrees cooler than today. /Rfox. 


Sunday night and monday: winds will subside Sunday evening as low 
pressure moves into the Canadian prairies. Cool/unstable 
northwesterly flow behind the exiting storm system will bring a 
good chance of accumulating snow to the Clearwater Mountains and 
the ridges above 4500 feet in southern Shoshone County Sunday 
night into Monday morning. Lookout Pass may have some slushy 
accumulations Sunday night at 4700 feet. Any accumulations will 
probably short-lived as temperatures warm into the 30s Monday. 


Tuesday and wednesday: a moisture laden storm system will likely 
bring the Pacific northwest another round of widespread rainfall 
Tuesday into Tuesday night. This system is currently organizing 
over the central Pacific and is ingesting Hurricane Ana. This may 
sound ominous, but by the time this storm arrives on Tuesday it 
won't be a particularly extraordinary system for this time of 
year. Western Washington, the Cascades, and mountains of north 
Idaho stand to get moderate rain. However, the 12-24 hour 
duration of tuesday's storm is pretty typical of mid autumn storm 
systems and does not appear to pose much of a flood concern at 
this time. It appears that our short-term wind/rain storm tonight 
into Sunday will be a more impactful storm than tuesday's system 
with Ana's moisture contribution. 


There is good agreement between the 12z runs of the GFS, European model (ecmwf) and 
ensembles that a shortwave ridge will build over the inland 
northwest Wednesday into Thursday. At this time, it appears that 
mountain showers will linger into Wednesday with the best shot of 
measurable rain in the morning. /Gkoch 


Thursday through Saturday night: some uncertainty exists during 
the far extended portion of the forecast. Through Thursday, 
confidence is much higher, but trails off from there. A warm front 
will lift north on Thursday as fairly deep as a digging trough off 
the Pacific coast enhances southerly flow over the inland 
northwest. This will likely trigger some showers as it lifts 
north. What happens afterwards will be key, especially for those 
who have outdoor plans on Friday night. How much the trough digs 
before coming inland will be key, as a slower timing will keep 
much of Friday dry, whereas a faster movement inland will be 
cooler and more showery. Tried to cut the solutions down the 
middle, which would keep higher chances over the Cascades while 
chances trail downward as you move east. 


It does look like thursday's high temperatures will be 10+ degrees 
above late, late October highs. Once the cold front passes, 
temperatures will once again fall back to where they should be. 
This also means snow levels will fall as well, which could reach 
some of the pass levels. TY

Aviation... 
00z tafs: some prefrontal convection may develop from the NE blue 
mts into north Idaho late this afternoon with an embedded 
thunderstorm possible but this will diminish after sunset. The 
main band of showers will increase over the Cascades and push 
eastward through the evening. Expect areas of MVFR with the rain. 
Winds will veer from east to south with an increase in gustiness 
this evening. The rain should taper off late evening and 
overnight as south to southwest winds get stronger with gusts of 
30-40kt possible. The winds should decrease slightly by early 
Sunday morning but will increase and become gusty again after 18z 
Sunday. /Ek
