NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
422 PM PDT Sat Sep 20 2014 


Synopsis... 
strong high pressure will provide a generally clear...warm and 
dry weekend for the inland northwest. The new work week will start 
out with continued above normal temperatures...but a weak cold 
front will bring a chance of showers starting Monday night. From 
mid-week Onward an approaching deep trough will increase the 
probability of rain with cooler temperatures. 


&& 


Discussion... 


Tonight through Monday...high pressure amplifies over the area 
with the ridge axis migrating east into western Montana Sunday 
which allows for a continued dry forecast with a warming trend. A 
weak cold front rides up the west side of the ridge Monday into 
Monday night which allows for cooler temperatures, an increase in 
cloud cover, slight increase in wind, and minor pops for hit and 
miss showers primarily near the east slopes of the northern 
Cascades and the northern Canadian border. Forecast temperatures 
given the ridge remain on the warm side of what would be 
considered normal for this time of year. /Pelatti 


Monday night through Saturday...the latest medium range models 
are in good agreement in depicting the slow approach and eventual 
arrival of a deep Pacific trough into the region through this 
period. Thus there is high confidence of a general deterioration 
from the dry and warm ridgy weather pattern of this weekend. 
Uncertainty exists...and this uncertainty is 
considerable...regarding just how quick and how Stark this 
deterioration into an autumnal showery or even downright wet and 
cool period will evolve. The problem concerns not the approach of 
the trough...but the exact placement and timing of the main trough 
baroclinic region which will likely feature widespread showers 
along a relatively narrow and slow moving band bisecting the 
forecast area from south to north...or if the GFS pans out a 
strong and wet deformation band on or about Friday. 


Where better agreement exists...not surprisingly in the earlier 
periods of Monday night through Tuesday...a weak outriding 
disturbance will bring the potential for isolated to scattered 
showers or even a thunderstorm or two on Monday night and Tuesday 
morning and begin a slow cooling trend as the surface thermal axis 
is shifted eastward into Montana. Tuesday looks like a cloudy but 
essentially dry day except near the Cascades as a weak short wave 
ridge in the wake of this outriding disturbance rebounds over the 
forecast area. 


Wednesday and beyond the GFS and European model (ecmwf) differ in timing and 
eastward progression of a stronger moisture axis and enhancement 
along the main trough baroclinic band. The Cascades and deep basin 
will probably face the main impact from these showers while the 
eastern half of the forecast area may remain dry through 
Wednesday. The GFS model supports this Prospect...while the European model (ecmwf) 
model pushes the potential rain band eastward across the region 
suggesting a very real threat of showers over the whole forecast 
area on Wednesday. 


The overall model agreement depicting a highly meridional trough 
off the coast meteorologically supports the slower GFS 
solution...so the forecast for the eastern basin and Idaho 
Panhandle will remain essentially dry for Wednesday and feature 
only a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms on Thursday. 


Friday and Saturday...on one or both of these days it is 
increasingly probable that the trough will finally settle into the 
forecast area with significantly increased chance of rain...cooler 
temperatures and possibly breezy winds in a generally unsettled 
fall pattern. The main uncertainty is whether this trough arrival 
will feature scattered to widespread but still hit-and-miss 
showers or at least some areas of more long-running stratiform 
light rain. /Fugazzi

Aviation... 
00z tafs: high pressure will promote dry and VFR conditions at 
taf sites, with light diurnal winds. /J. Cote'
