NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
611 PM PDT Wednesday Jul 23 2014 


Synopsis... a strong storm system and associated cold front will 
conintue to move through the region tonight, bringing severe 
thunderstorms producing large hail, strong wind, frequent 
lightning with pockets of heavy rain mainly near the Canadian 
border this evening. Cool and windy weather is expected for 
later tonight into Thursday with less chances of thunderstorms 
confined to the northern mountains. Temperatures will rebound by 
the weekend and be accompanied by dry conditions. Hot weather will 
return to the area on Sunday and early next week. 


&& 


Discussion... 


Updated for cancellation of Flash Flood Watch and reducing the 
area of severe thunderstorm warnings. 


Tonight... 


.Severe thunderstorms continue be a threat through this 
evening near the Canadian border... 


Radar and satellite continue to show the progression of the cold 
front across the regionsand strong thunderstorms progressing 
toward the Canadian border these storms will continue to progress 
swiftly north and east through this evening with a potentially 
damaging and deadly combination of frequent lightning, possible 
Golf Ball sized hail, strong wind gusts to 60 miles per hour and very heavy 
rain causing localized flash flooding. 


It is highly urged to take shelter this afternoon and evening in 
a sturdy building until the the threat of these thunderstorms 
pass. The overall threat of severe thunderstorms will pass by 
late evening but isolated thunderstorms will persist overnight 
near the Canadian border until around midnight. 


Behind the cold front and thunderstorms, wind will continue to be 
strong with 35 miles per hour gusts lasting into the late evening hours. 


Please continue to check frequently on the evolution of this 
dangerous situation from local radio and television news sources 
and the National Weather Service Spokane web site at http://weather.Gov/Spokane . 


Thursday through Saturday... 
showers will still linger over the mountains especially north and 
east in the Idaho Panhandle. Temperatures will be cooler Thursday 
will a cool night Thursday night. Going into Friday and Saturday 
Mountain showers will be greatly diminished and a warming trend 
will begin as high pressure builds into the region. Tc 


Sunday through wednesday: the heat returns to the inland 
northwest. High pressure builds over the area for an extended 
period of hot weather. But there are some flies in the ointment. 
Both the European model (ecmwf) and GFS show a little ripple in the flow coming up 
from the southwest sometime Sunday or Monday. This brings moisture 
into the area which could bring a threat of high-based (i.E. 
Mostly dry) thunderstorms. The best chance would be over southeast 
Washington and the southern Panhandle for Monday. After that wave, 
convection should mainly be confined to the south of our area, but 
that could change with the next forecasts. 


The other affect of this moisture is that it will play havoc with 
the temperatures for Monday. Clouds overnight could result in rather 
balmy low temperatures. Clouds during the day could shave a few 
degrees off the high temperatures. At this point I cooled 
temperatures a bit for Monday afternoon. Rj 


&& 


Aviation... 
00z tafs: cold front will continue to move through the area into 
through 06z bringing severe thunderstorms with wind gusts to 60 
mph, large hail and heavy rain leading to temporary reductions 
of ceilings to near MVFR. Cold air following the cold front will 
continue gusty winds to 35 miles per hour with reduction in storm activity from 
southern Washington to northern Washington and north Idaho after 03z. 
Expect lingering showers and possibly an isolated thunderstorm over 
the northern mountains for Thursday but all taf sites will 
essentially be experiencing a drying period and breezy winds gusting 
to 30 miles per hour into 00z Friday. Tc
