NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
532 am PDT Wednesday Aug 20 2014 


Synopsis... 
cooler temperatures and the occasional threat of showers and 
thunderstorms will linger the rest of the week and into the 
weekend. However, the vast majority of this precipitation will be 
in the north Idaho Panhandle. 


&& 


Discussion... 
Wednesday and thursday: an upper-level trof will continue to deepen 
over the inland northwest during this time-frame bringing cooler temperatures, 
areas of showers and thunderstorms, and locally breezy winds. 


A strong northwest to southeast oriented jet stretching from the Gulf 
of Alaska to Astoria, or will feed shortwave energy into the longwave 
trof with three distinct waves expected within the next 48 hours. 
The first wave is currently crossing through ern Washington and utilizing 
a rich and unstable air mass expanding from NE Oregon...through 
much of the Idaho Panhandle...and across northeastern Washington. This can be 
traced well on the GFS 700mb Theta-E surface. The presence of this 
air mass and midlevel forcing is clearly evident when viewing the 
2am radar which continues to show isolated thunderstorms going 
strong through Kootenai and Shoshone counties. A midlevel dry slot 
is slowly working its way east through The Gorge into ern Washington and 
should stabilize the air mass over southeast Washington and southern portions of 
the Idaho Panhandle throughout the morning hours. 


Meanwhile...the rich Theta-E air will remain anchored over the 
northern mountains and upper reaches of the basin mainly north of 
Hwy 2 delivering another afternoon and evening of showers and 
thunderstorms. Instability parameters do not differ much from 
Tuesday which implies brief heavy rain, small hail, and wind gusts 
to 40 mph will be the main threats. There is some forcing expected 
to translate through southern areas of the County Warning Area but the atmosphere 
does not look to recover following this morning's dry slot and 
will continue a mainly dry forecast for the afternoon and evening. 
Any showers and storms for the Cascades looks to be north of Lake 
Chelan but this even carries some uncertainty. This second 
shortwave which passes through this afternoon is difficult to make 
out on satellite this evening but can generally be traced to the 
area of darkening entering northwestern Washington. This wave will 
continue to deepen as the day progresses as it passes through an 
area of increased ascent within the left exit region of the 
approaching jet streak. The shortwave is expected to make a quick 
passage through southern Idaho by early evening. As this occurs, the 
axis of instability and deeper moisture across the northern 
mountains will be pulled back to the S/southeast and renew the threat for 
showers and storms into the upper reaches of the Columbia Basin, 
Spokane-cda area, and Idaho Panhandle. 


On Thursday, a third and stronger shortwave trof will dig into northwest Washington 
by the afternoon and cross the Cascades by early evening. This 
will bring the strongest forcing of the next 48 hours. We will see 
some drying of the air mass as it continues to cool pushing 
precipitable water (pwats) down from 0.90" on Wednesday to 0.75" 
Thursday across NE Washington while the Cascades and Lower Basin generally 
reside between 0.40-0.50". The greatest risk for thunderstorms 
will continue along the northern mountains from northwest Montana to the 
northern Cascades with a decreasing risk for the upper Columbia 
Basin. Dry conditions will prevail for the Columbia Basin, 
Wenatchee area, Palouse, and blue mtns. The synoptic pattern will 
transition from the passage of open shortwave trofs toward more a 
closed low over the region. This does raise some concern for near 
stationary storm movement, especially near burn scars. The 
moisture is not as plentiful as we typically see with such events 
but if afternoon heating is strong enough and surface based cape 
exceeds 900-1000 j/kg...flash flooding and mudslides will be a 
large concern. 


Temperatures will cool back near seasonal readings or upper 70's to 
80's which will end the current four stretch of above normal 
warmth. /Sb 


Thurs nt through Sunday nt: we're now seeing a clear westward 
trend in run-to-run model guidance in the path of the deep upper 
low that digs south through British Columbia and into central WA by thurs nt. 
The result will be an increased pcpn threat across the Cascades 
thurs nt and Fri. However, the Cascades will only be subjected 
to the first band of pcpn forced at least partly by the vort Max 
that coincides with the dry slot over the Columbia Basin. But 
after this first wave occludes, we're now seeing new cyclogenesis 
well to the south ahead of the upper low that quickly produces a 
significant band of pcpn across southeast WA and the Idaho Panhandle Fri 
nt through Sat nt. This band of pcpn, associated with a well- 
defined trowal, will be much stronger than the first... which is a 
change from what model guidance has been showing the last few 
days. That said, we trended (once again) to add more pcpn across 
the southeast WA and north Idaho zones. A third wave embedded in the northwest 
steering flow quickly moves southeast into the region Sunday nt with yet 
another round of showers and embedded thunder. These waves will 
continue to keep the fcst relatively cool. Bz 


Monday through Tuesday night: models have come into decent 
agreement suggesting the cool and showery pattern will come to an 
end early next week as the jet stream finally slides back north. 
This would place the region on the warmer and more stable side of 
the jet stream leading to more Summer-like conditions. The final 
wave of energy looks to pass Monday into Monday night keeping 
shower/T-storm chances alive. Best chances will be in NE 
Washington and the Idaho Panhandle, especially in the higher 
terrain of these regions. Winds will also be on the increase with 
the passing wave as mid level winds will have a better potential 
of mixing down to the surface. 


By Tuesday much drier air makes it into the region as a ridge of 
high pressure takes control in turn drastically limiting the 
chances for precipitation. With the ridge, temperatures will be on 
the rebound pushing back into the 80s for most by midweek under 
clearing skies. Overall this time frame appears to be the rebound 
period as temperatures shift back above normal and the chance for 
precipitation greatly diminishes. /Fliehman 


&& 


Aviation... 
12z tafs: isolated thunderstorms will slowly shift east through 
the Idaho Panhandle this morning tied to a passing frontal boundary. 
Following some Morning Sun, widely scattered showers and storms 
will Blossom over the NE Washington and nrn Idaho...likely to drift toward 
the kgeg-kcoe corridor aft 22z. An axis of instability will remain 
across NE Washington and nrn Idaho through the night keeping a threat for 
isold -tsra through 12z thur. Look for breezy winds at keat incr 
aft 23z through 05z. /Sb.
