NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
446 PM PDT Tuesday Mar 31 2015 


Synopsis... 
an unsettled and ocassionally showery Spring-like weather pattern 
will continue through the week and into the weekend. Widespread 
freezing temperatures are possible Thursday and Friday morning. 
Then anticipate more seasonal temperatures by early next week. 


&& 


Discussion... 
tonight and tomorrow: a Cool Spring-like upper-level trof will 
continue to slide into the region this evening and remain in 
place through tomorrow. 500mb temperatures within the core of the 
trof are on the order of -30c or cooler which is leading to 
steepening lapse rates and potential for showers. Winds this 
afternoon are helping to bring drier air in the Lee of the 
Cascades and basin which will keep a bulk of the shower activity 
focusing on the mountains and adjoining outer reaches of the 
basin. So far there has not been a lightning strike in Washington/Idaho (just 
across the border in bc) but convection continues to increase and 
a few strikes are a strong possibility with the best chances in 
the northern and eastern mountains. A Puget Sound convergence zone 
has become established and per the hrrr, should continue through 
much of this evening into tonight. Depending on where this narrow 
bands swings north and south, it looks promising for some snow 
accumulations to impact Stevens Pass and possible east into 
locations like plain, Coles Corner, and perhaps Leavenworth. 
Another feature we are closely monitoring is a second midlevel 
circulation or vort Max near 130w. Earlier model runs brought this 
feature near the Washington/or border then through The Blues...Palouse 
/l-c valley...and into the central Panhandle...but satellite 
trends and latest RUC suggest this feature will take a southward 
track through Oregon. 


Temperatures will be cool overnight with several locations within 
the northern valleys dipping below the freezing mark. This includes 
locations like Winthrop, Omak, Republic, Deer Park, Ione, and 
Priest Lake. Communities along and north of I-90 within the Idaho 
Panhandle could also be close to freezing for a short period of 
time Wednesday morning but confidence is lower with the potential 
for cloud cover. 


Following a few hours of warming Wednesday, look for widely scattered 
showers to Blossom across a majority of the region. The highest 
concentration of activity will focus along and east of a line from 
Republic to Pullman but any number of midlevel disturbances coming 
across the Cascades could lead to clusters of activity. The 
atmosphere will be cooler compared to Tuesday and most shower 
activity will fall as a combination of rain and snow pellets. This 
lowers the threat for thunder as the thermal characteristics 
within the cloud will not be as favorable for charge separation. 
There is a small chance for lightning but should be less than 
Tuesday...which has yet to materialize. Winds will become low-end 
breezy Wednesday but several magnitudes lower than Tuesday. High 
temperatures will only warm into the 50s...coming in near to just 
shy of typical values for April 1st. /Sb 


Wednesday night through Friday night...a typical active Spring 
weather pattern will continue for the rest of the work week. 
Latest models are in decent agreement in depicting the slow exit 
of the current upper level trough through Thursday before a short 
wave ridge builds in for an ill defined/less showery break period 
Thursday night and Friday followed by the arrival of the next cold 
front Friday night. 


Thursday will feature slightly cooler than normal high and low 
temperatures...probable sunbreaks over much of the area but also 
a continuing chance of scattered hit-and-miss showers east of a 
line from Omak to Walla Walla with a stray short lived garden 
variety Spring thunderstorm thrown into the mix in the northeast 
mountains and Idaho Panhandle. 


The main threat during this period will be the possibility of 
freezing temperatures Thursday morning and again on Friday morning 
over most of the region. The lowest elevation locations of 
Wenatchee...Moses Lake and the l-c valley will also be at risk for 
freezing and ordinarily this early in the year freezes are not 
uncommon...however the unusual warmth of the past month has 
stimulated some anomalously early budding and blooming in some of 
these areas. As the forecast for Thursday morning's low 
temperatures is refined on subsequent shifts an early season 
freeze warning may be necessary for these low elevation 
locations. 


Friday will feature the approach of the next trough and while the 
cold front will hold off until Friday evening...a weak mid level 
warm front is suggested by the models setting up over the 
northeastern zones and Panhandle during the day Friday. Not much 
actual precipitation is expected but mid level and high clouds 
will increase during the day with mid-range chances of light rain 
mainly over the north. The actual cold front will pass through 
Friday night with a better chance of valley rain and mountain 
snow...with breezier conditions behind the front promoting warmer 
overnight lows by dawn Saturday. /Fugazzi 


Saturday through tuesday: an upper level trough will be main 
weather feature for the weekend and into early next week. Both 
the GFS and ecwmf are very similar on handling this feature as it 
sinks south from the Gulf of Alaska south to the Washington coast 
Saturday and Sunday, and then weakens and opens up as it swings 
inland for Monday. Broad troughiness lingers into Tuesday. This 
will keep temperatures near seasonal normals and showery 
conditions through this period. Made some slight chances to the 
sensible weather of the forecast. The progress of the upper level 
low seems slower than seen yesterday, which would yield to a 
slower evolution of the shower development and a slower cool down 
of the temperatures. Most showers will be diurnally driven, 
peaking in the afternoon and evening hours on Saturday. As the low 
digs south, the main brunt of the shower activity shifts south for 
Sunday, highlighting the southern Cascades and the Blue Mountains. 
Then Monday and into Tuesday, the convection returns to the 
diurnal trends concentrating in the mountains. Snow levels will 
waffle from the valley floors at night and into the mountains 
during the day, so precipitation will switch to snow at night with 
minor accumulations possible, to a rain/snow/graupel mix during 
the afternoon hours. What this equates to is typically Spring like 
weather for the inland northwest. /Rfox. 


&& 


Aviation... 
00z tafs: a cold upper level trof will promote scattered showers 
and a slight chance of a thunderstorm mainly this evening and 
again Wednesday aft/eve during peak daytime heating. Convection this 
evening are expected to be confined mainly in the mountains due to 
strong downslope flow off the Cascades. The best chance for an 
isolated thunderstorm will be near the Canadian border around 
Metaline Falls and Bonners Ferry. Windy conditions will subside 
this evening around 02-04z as pressure gradients decrease and 
mixing potential decreases. Several type of precipitation are 
possible with these showers this evening as well as Wednesday 
afternoon...including rain...snow...small hail...and graupel. Jw
