NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
446 PM PDT Tuesday Sep 30 2014 


Synopsis... 
scattered showers and breezy conditions will come to an end 
tonight. High pressure will gradually build in through the weekend 
and linger into the middle of next week. This will result in 
generally dry weather with temperatures warming to above normal by 
the weekend. 




&& 


Discussion... 
tonight and wednesday: an upper level trough will pivot through 
eastern Washington into north Idaho this evening. As it does, it 
will bring a chance of showers to the northern mountains, northern 
Columbia Basin and most of north Idaho. A few embedded 
thunderstorms are possible through late this afternoon. This 
convection will be diurnally driven and the clouds with showers 
will decrease rapidly with the loss of daytime heating early this 
evening. Westerly winds will remain gusty from the Lee of the 
Cascades and across the lower Columbia Basin with speeds of 20 to 
25 mph. By tonight, the flow aloft becomes northerly and drier. A 
ridge of high pressure building off the Washington coast, will 
push inland on Wednesday and give drier and sunnier conditions. 
Temperatures will cool slightly overnight into the upper 30s to 
lower 40s. And in sheltered areas, expect even cooler conditions 
under the clearing skies. Anticipate some patchy fog in many of 
the northern valleys, especially in the locations that the showers 
tracked through today. The fog will be short lived and expect 
mostly sunny skies for the rest of the day under lighter winds. 
Daytime temperatures will continue to be cool, remaining at or 
slightly below normal./ Rfox 


Wednesday night through saturday: a Flat Ridge of high pressure is 
expected to bring a prolonged period of dry weather and mild 
temperatures to the inland northwest from mid-week through the 
weekend. The 12z model runs are in decent agreement that the polar 
jet will remain far enough north through the second half of the 
week that precipitation chances will be largely north of the 
Canadian border. Slight chances for rain are in the forecast for 
the northern Cascades and the high terrain along the Canadian 
border for Friday and Saturday, but nearby valley locations should 
remain dry. Look for a gradual warming trend Thursday through 
Saturday with temperatures climbing a bit above average by the 
weekend. /Gkoch 


Saturday night through Tuesday...an upper ridge over the western 
U.S. Is expected to remain strong enough in the extended forecast 
period to deflect a moist zonal flow north of the area across 
central British Columbia. The GFS, ECMWF, and Canadian models are 
in good agreement with this idea. The inland northwest will be 
the warm and stable side of the jet stream. Models show some 
increase in lower level moisture during the period as some of the 
very moist flow over British Columbia clips the area. This will 
raise dew points into the 40s to lower 50s which will aid in mild 
night time lows. Periods of mid/high clouds may also assist with 
warmer nights. In addition...850mb temps in the 14-17c range will 
result in valley highs mainly in the 70s with a few lower 80s in 
the warmest spots such as Wenatchee, Moses Lake, and Lewiston. The 
increased low level moisture content and upslope westerly flow may 
be enough to ring out a few light showers near the Cascade crest 
and in the mountains of north Idaho...with the better chances 
north of the Canadian border. Jw

Aviation... 
00z tafs: an upper trough and associated cold pool aloft has 
destabilized the atmosphere, allowing scattered showers and 
isolated thunderstorms to develop across much of eastern Washington and 
north Idaho this afternoon that will persist until 02z. Some of the 
strongest cells may produce occasional lightning and brief heavy 
downpours. As the sun sets, skies should clear quickly with the 
loss of afternoon heating. Clearing skies and diminishing winds 
overnight may produce low status at kgeg/ksff/kcoe and possibly 
kpuw. Most likely to be affected is kcoe where greater amounts of 
precip will provide a source of low level moisture. Any stratus 
that develops will dissipate by 19z. Winds may again become gusty 
after 19z Wednesday. /Ek
