NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
1111 am PDT Tuesday Oct 21 2014 


Synopsis... 


A cold front is very slowly moving through the inland northwest 
which will bring precipitation to much of the area and an end to 
the above average temperatures. The active pattern will continue 
through the weekend with the potential for heavy rain continuing 
as moisture associated with former typhoons makes its way toward 
the Pacific northwest early next week. 


&& 


Discussion... 


Today and tonight...deep upper level trough and associated cold 
front will continue to make a slow eastward crawl through the inland 
northwest this morning. As of 200 am...the front was located along a 
line from Colville to the Blue Mountains with widespread 
precipitation immediately ahead of the boundary. This shield of 
precipitation will be the main feature of the weather today over 
the region. North of I-90...the precipitation will be somewhat hit 
or miss with lesser amounts of available moisture and deep ascent. 
Meanwhile...south of I-90...the precipitation will begin to 
Blossom as the base of the aforementioned shortwave trough tracks 
northeast...moving into SW Montana by afternoon. Various model 
guidance is all consistent on producing a misspend of heavier 
precipitation across the southern Panhandle. The NAM is the most 
aggressive solution and produces a broad swath of precipitation 
amounts from 0.20-0.40 inches this morning. Some of this 
intersects southern Shoshone County...impacting the towns of Avery 
and Clarkia. The other solutions are insistent the heaviest 
precipitation band will remain over the Clearwater Mountains and 
points to the south. This scenario leaves most of the inland northwest 
free of moderate to heavy precipitation for this morning. 


The base of the trough is forecast to move into SW Montana by late 
afternoon/evening which allows shortwave ridging to rebuild over 
most of the area. This should bring a brief drying trend to the 
region...however residual moisture and instability will keep a 
threat of showers going along the Idaho/Montana border as well as near the 
Canadian border. 


The shortwave ridge is expected to shift from the Cascades this 
evening and into northwest Montana by daybreak on Wednesday. This 
transition will mark an increasing threat of precipitation once 
again beginning near the Cascades and spreading into the Okanogan 
Highlands and Wenatchee overnight. This round of precipitation 
should be wetter than what the current front is delivering. These 
differences are related to higher amounts of precipitable water 
and much stronger isentropic ascent. The precipitation will also 
be aided weak to moderate orograhpic ascent from south-southeast 
winds in the mid-atmosphere. The threat of precipitation will 
persist through most of Wednesday and Wednesday night. Fx 


Wednesday through Saturday... 


..subtropical moisture fetch to bring heavy rain to the Cascades 
Wednesday... 


Wednesday...forecast models continue to show an atmospheric river 
containing subtropical moisture getting picked up by a deep closed 
low off the central British Columbia coast...with moisture slamming into the 
Cascades on Wednesday...with rain also spilling into north central 
and northeast Washington through the afternoon. 850mb winds out of 
the south-southeast may result in significant spill over from the 
crest into the valleys with 1-2 inches of rain not out of the 
question with up to 3 inches along the Cascade crest. This long 
duration rain may be enough to cause small debris flows over the 
burn scar areas. With rivers and streams at their climatologically 
lowest stages these rain amounts are not expected to cause 
flooding. Elsewhere timing of when the moisture plume sags 
southeast has slowed a bit with the 00z model runs with the 
exception of the European model (ecmwf). Thus pop's were lowered east of a line 
from Ritzville to Spokane to Sandpoint as rain in these areas may 
hold off until Wednesday evening. 850mb winds out of the south- 
southwest over the northern mountains will provide strong upslope 
flow where around an inch of rain is possible. These same winds 
will downslope off the blue and Wallowa Mountains with the 
Lewiston area getting the least amount of rain with this system. 


Thursday...the atmospheric river shifts south across Oregon 
possibly clipping far southeast Washington. Central and eastern 
Washington and north Idaho will be on the cool side of a 140kt 
upper level jet supporting more of a showery scenario. With 850mb 
winds out of the southwest at 30 kts and lack of isentropic 
lift...a more pronounced rain shadow east of the Cascades is 
expected. Pop's were lowered for much of the Columbia Basin 
extending to Spokane and the Palouse on Thursday. Afternoon sun 
breaks in combination with stronger winds aloft should result in 
breezy conditions over the upper Columbia Basin, Spokane area, and 
Palouse. 


Friday and Saturday...GFS and European model (ecmwf) models show the development of 
a 990mb surface low off the Oregon coast tracking north to off the 
Washington coast. The GFS shows the low closer to the coast and 
shows more precipitation and wind potential compared to the European model (ecmwf). 
However both models indicate a warm front lifting north into 
Washington and north Idaho late Friday afternoon into Friday night 
with easterly flow favoring the east slopes of the Cascades and 
adjacent valleys and pop's were increased to likely over a broader 
area with chance pop's elsewhere. Then the cold front passage 
Saturday will keep precip chances alive especially in the 
mountains. Snow levels look to remain high through the period with 
the only the higher peaks being cold enough for snow. Jw 


Saturday night through Tuesday night: an active weather pattern 
remains over the inland northwest, with additional chances for 
precipitation into early next week. The trough will finally move 
inland on Sunday, which may be followed by somewhat of a break in 
the wet weather over The Lowlands. However, the approach of 
another storm system in the Monday night/Tuesday time frame will 
bring additional chances for rainfall and High Mountain snowfall. 
This system looks to ride on another deep moisture fetch, which 
could bring heavier rainfall to at least the Cascades. 


Another thing to watch, although it doesn't look like it will be 
too much of an issue at this point, are snow levels. Snow levels 
may fall low enough that some of the mountain passes could be 
affected. Something to watch in the coming days. Otherwise, 
temperatures should finally fall back to near normal late October 
values, at least during the afternoons. Low temperatures may be a 
bit above normal. TY 


&& 


Aviation... 
18z tafs: low stratus will linger around the northern and eastern 
basin, as well as, into the Idaho Panhandle through this afternoon. 
This will impact the kgeg, ksff, kcoe and kpuw taf locations. The stratus 
deck is expected to lift into a stratocumulus deck through the 
afternoon with VFR cigs possible by the late afternoon hours. Low 
level flow will back to out of the southeast overnight as a moist 
Pacific storm system approaches the region. Strong warm air 
advection should clear out the low clouds tonight with rainfall 
forming northwest of a line from kmwh to kcqv by Wednesday 
morning. Keat will likely see light rain developing after 12z with 
cigs lowering to MVFR category. Low level wind shear will become a 
concern as well with winds increasing significantly off the 
surface and veering to out of the southwest; however, low level 
wind shear is not mentioned in the tafs as it does not look to be 
strong enough. /Svh
