NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
431 am PST sun Feb 14 2016 


Synopsis... 
rain and mountain snow will spread slowly northeast into eastern 
Washington and north Idaho the next 24 to 36 hours. Accumulating 
snow will likely impact travel over Lookout Pass this morning on 
Interstate 90 as well as Stevens Pass on Highway 2 over the 
Cascades. Snow levels will rise markedly by tonight and into 
Monday and temperatures will seem more like early April than mid 
February. Many locations will experience highs in the 50s to low 
60s on Monday and Tuesday. More wet weather will arrive for middle 
to late week with occasionally windy conditions. 


&& 


Discussion... 
today through Mon nt: we'll be letting the winter wx advsy for the 
cntrl ID Panhandle mtns end in the next few hours as we transition 
to an increasingly stable air mass, weakening upslope flow, and 
slowly rising snow levels. However...this more stable air mass 
will be characterized by widespread stratiform pcpn within a zone 
of isentropic ascent over a warm frontal boundary currently 
developing across srn WA. This warm front will lift north the next 
24 hrs keeping a persistent moderate to heavy pcpn threat across 
all of north Idaho and from the Palouse north to the British Columbia border in a 
warm conveyor belt of rich moisture containing pwat values 
approaching 200 percent of normal. This combination of around an 
inch of rain and melting snow in the Idaho Panhandle will produce 
rises on area rivers and streams. A strong, nearly unidirectional, 
westerly vertical wind profile will help to produce a significant 
pcpn shadow in the Lee of the Cascades by late today and keep much 
of the upper Columbia Basin dry. This northward translation of the 
previously mentioned front will coincide with a amplifying upper 
ridge through Mon nt and put all of ern WA and north Idaho at the nose 
of a thermal ridge at 850 mb by Mon, allowing for good mixing and 
coupling with 40-50kt 850mb winds aloft. Though Mon will see 
record breaking high temps and sun for much of ern WA, it will 
also be very windy... with persistent west winds of 25 to 35 mph 
from the Tri- Cities NE through the Palouse and into the Spokane 
region. Gusts to 50 mph on ridge tops is possible Mon for the nrn 
blue mtns. Also, late Sunday nt and Mon will see a moderately 
favorable setup for very gusty mtn winds in the Cascades as the 
polar jet moves north and establishes an inversion just above the 
Cascade crest that may help to enhance the ridge-top flow 
dramatically. This will be monitored closely the next 24 hours as 
some model guidance is showing a north to south corridor of 60 mph 
winds along the east slopes of the Cascades. It appears at this 
time that the Lower Valley towns such as Wenatchee will not see 
these strong winds, but ridgetops and higher exposed terrain may 
not be so lucky. 


See our wx stories concerning all of the above impacts on 
our Spokane National Weather Service web Page. Stay tuned...bz 


Tuesday through saturday: an active storm track will continue 
over the inland northwest through the remainder of the week. Most 
active periods look to be Wednesday night through Friday with a 
pair of storm systems tracking through. Each will bring a chance 
of valley Rain/Mountain snow and breezy winds. 


The first weather system is expected for Wednesday night through 
Thursday. This system will have a better moisture tap associated 
with it originating from the sub-tropics. The upper level trough 
will become rather elongated as it pushes in off of the eastern 
Pacific, which will prevent a more direct moisture plume 
orientation that would be observed in an atmospheric river type 
scenario. This will help to keep hydrology concerns to a minimal 
level even though rivers and streams across the region will be on 
the rise early next week. Good southerly flow ahead of the trough 
will also keep snow levels high with accumulating snow expected to 
mainly remain above pass levels. The caveat to this will be 
behind the cold front. There is still quite a bit of uncertainty 
as to the timing of cold front passage. The general consensus is 
that frontal passage will be Wednesday night. Snow levels will 
drop during this time with rain possibly changing over to snow 
showers over Stevens Pass. Winds are likely to be breezy on 
Thursday, but current model guidance does not show much cause for 
concern they don't look to be strong enough to meet advisory 
criteria. 


A short break in the weather is expected Thursday evening/night 
before the next shortwave disturbance arrives. This system also 
looks fairly progressive. Snow levels will start out lower with 
this next wave, so there will be a better chance for accumulating 
snow above 3000 feet. The current timing of this system is not 
favorable for accumulating snow on the passes as much of the 
moisture looks to fall Friday morning/afternoon. The front will 
deliver another round of breezy winds to the region from Friday 
afternoon into the evening. As with the previous storm system, 
this also does not look particularly strong, so borderline 
advisory type wind speeds are possible but most likely will be a 
low impact event. 


Temperatures will see a cooling trend through the week, but will 
still remain mild and above seasonal averages. /Svh 


&& 


Aviation... 
12z tafs: expect another round of rain with VFR/MVFR cigs today 
and tonight as a frontal boundary lifts north across the region. A 
strong mid- level westerly wind has produced a rain shadow east of 
the Cascades limiting rain amount for Wenatchee, Moses Lake, and 
Omak. The near sfc air mass should be moist enough to produce fog 
in Wenatchee. Spokane, Coeur D'Alene, and Pullman will see light 
rain slowly move north, with ceilings on average lowering to at 
least MVFR through Mon 12z.
