NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
243 PM PDT Tuesday Jul 29 2014 


Synopsis... 
sunny and hot weather will continue over the inland northwest 
through at least Friday. A gradual increase in clouds over the 
next few days may knock temperatures down a few degrees, but mid 
90s to low 100s will be common through the work week. The threat 
for thunderstorms should increase over the weekend which may 
knock temperatures down a bit more. 




&& 


Discussion... 
tonight...the region will remain under the control of a strong 
upper level ridge. Any of the monsoonal moisture and instability 
working slowly northward through northern Oregon/central Idaho 
will generally remain south of our forecast area. However there is 
a very small chance of a shower or thunderstorm early this evening 
over the southern Idaho Panhandle or the extreme southeast corner 
of Washington due to the greatest potential instability combined 
with the weakest convective cap. After sunset most of the activity 
will taper off rapidly. It will be a dry and mild night once again 
with poor relative humidity recoveries for most locations. Clouds 
will increase late tonight near the Oregon border as a pool of 
mid-level instability and moisture surges slowly northward. We do 
not expect any precipitation to occur...however there could be a 
small field of altocumulus castellanus clouds and perhaps a sprinkle after sunrise. 
Fx 


Wednesday through friday: it is tough to get too excited about 
precipitation chances for the majority of the inland northwest 
Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday. The morning runs of the weather 
models keep the lion's share of the mid-level moisture and 
surface based instability for thunderstorms over Oregon and 
southern Idaho for the second half of the work week. The models 
are in good agreement that a weak upper level disturbance off the 
coast of northern California will Dent the formidable upper level 
ridge on Wednesday shunting a bit of mid-level moisture into the 
Panhandle. The NAM looks to be the most aggressive generating 
convection over the Idaho Panhandle mountains Wednesday afternoon 
and evening, but it is tough to forecast more than a 20 percent 
chance of showers and thunderstorms, even following the "moist" 
NAM. Another marginal push of mid-level moisture is suggested on 
Friday, possibly into the Cascades and southeast Washington. Once 
again, it is tough to forecast more than 20 percent chance of 
mainly terrain based convection. 


Raw model output is generally hotter than MOS guidance Wednesday 
through Friday. Given the relatively limited amount of cloud cover 
expected, temperatures have been trended a bit hotter. 850mb 
temperatures do not trend down much the second half of the week, 
so it looks like a continuation of mid 90s to near 100 degrees for 
most of the region. /Gkoch 


Friday night through Tuesday...very odd interval of the forecast. 
Pops were raised as at least three European model (ecmwf) runs hint fairly hard 
that some remnant moisture and energy from Post-Tropical Storm 
Hernan gets ejected up from the east Pacific and into the 
southerly/southwesterly flow on the west side of the longwave 
ridge axis over the western US. This leaves a good part of the 
interval with increase pops and the quantitative precipitation forecast is something to Ponder a 
good time over. Many are noting some similarity in this solution 
to what Hurricane Fabio did back around this same time period back 
in late July of 2012. Discussion of this similarity last night 
with other forecasters noted that remnants of Fabio were 
associated with dropping 1.76 inches on Omak back on July 20,2012 
along with 1.70 inches on Chelan and 0.92 inches Mazama on July 
20,2012. Locations further east such as Spokane received 0.25 
inches on July 20, 2012. Nobody is saying that this scenario will 
repeat exactly as Fabio did in 2012 but it is Worth looking back 
and noting how much rain did fall back then. With this in mind as 
far as Friday night through Sunday GOES pops were increased some 
with uncertainty noted as it is usually problematic to model 
solution run to run consistency anytime tropical energy gets 
ejected up into the mid-latitudes. Expectation is any/all 
disturbances that may be remotely associated with remnant Hernan 
moisture/energy will be to the east of the area and the prevailing 
southwest flow on the west side of the persistent longwave ridge 
may steer additional shortwaves through either from the east 
Pacific or up from the south but current model runs are not 
aggressive in doing so. As such Sunday night through Tuesday pops 
show a decrease and are lower in comparison to those over the 
weekend. /Pelatti

Aviation... 
18z tafs: VFR conditions expected at all forecast sites during 
this period as strong ridge remains over the region. There could 
be a weak disturbance moving across the or/Washington border after 12z 
which could deliver increasing mid and high level clouds...but 
little else. Fx
