NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
345 am PST Friday Jan 30 2015 


Synopsis... 
areas of low clouds and fog will persist across portions of 
inland northwest as high pressure remains in place. The ridge of 
high pressure will begin breaking down Sunday. This will result in 
and increased chance for valley rain and mountain snow through 
the middle of next week. 






&& 


Discussion... 
today through Saturday...quiet weather will prevail during 
this period...but there is a subtle feature which will approach 
later tonight into early Saturday which could deliver some 
weather. For today the weather will be about as mundane as weather 
can get during this time of year in the inland northwest. Upper 
level high pressure will once again remain fixed over the region 
with the jet stream poised over central British Columbia. Meanwhile a fairly 
broad area of high pressure will reside near the ground resulting 
in very light winds and hence very poor mixing potential. This 
suggests the fog and stratus currently over most elevations below 
3500 feet per the latest fog product will persist longer into the 
day. For locations west of a line from Colville to Pullman...the 
odds of the clouds breaking up are rather slim as the stratus 
there is most likely thicker than the deck east of this area. This 
was the approximate line which delineated the clearing line late 
yesterday afternoon. East of the line the prospects of a breakup 
are a little better...since we suspect the deck is shallower 
however confidence is far from good. This area was subject to 
rapid fog development during the evening and much of it was dense. 
Lately though the fog has been lifting across the Idaho Panhandle 
and even the Spokane Valley into the Coeur D'Alene area. We 
currently have a dense fog advisory in effect for a large portion 
of the Idaho Panhandle and across the eastern quarter of 
Washington, however if this lifting trend continues we will have 
to drop a good portion of them. 


For tonight and into early Saturday the weather gets a little more 
"exciting". This excitement will be in response to a shortwave 
trough currently situated near 50n/130w. All models are doing well 
with its placement compared to satellite and all take the feature 
through British Columbia today before diving it southeast into northwest Montana late 
tonight into early Saturday. Deep moisture won't likely accompany 
this feature...however it will likely induce some weak upward 
motion through the ever-present low-level cloud deck. This will 
likely provide the impetus for some drizzle (or possibly flurries) 
across far eastern Washington and much of the Idaho Panhandle. 
Temperatures will be close to freezing so we would likely see a 
mix of drizzle and freezing drizzle. Roads could get slick but 
confidence in drizzle forecasts is quite low so will cover 
situation via social media rather than a weather highlight. The 
threat of drizzle and freezing drizzle should wane rapidly during 
the afternoon as the shortwave trough shears apart into northern 
Wyoming and lowers the ascent through the saturated boundary 
layer. Fx 


Saturday night through thursday: the region transitions to a 
wetter pattern. The system that christens the transition, a 
organized frontal wave, makes its way in with a subtropical 
moisture tap Sunday. Strengthening isentropic ascent with the 
leading warm front and that deepening moisture will lead to 
increasing precipitation chances. Some of that lift/moisture combo 
starts into the Cascades and northern mountains Saturday night 
late, but the stronger threat and more likely precipitation comes 
in between Sunday and Sunday night. 


* Precipitation-type: on Sunday morning light snow accumulations will 
be possible down to the valley floors, largely away from the 
deeper basin to lower Palouse and l-c valley. By Sunday 
afternoon and evening the snow threat in the valleys retreats 
north of Highway 2, though some snow may still mix with the rain 
threat about the Southern Hills around the Spokane/c'da area. 
And where snow may continue in the northern valleys 
accumulations may be limited with the heating of the day. 


* Snow amounts: light to moderate snow accumulation are possible 
in the mountains above about 3000 to 4000 feet. Here some 2 to 5 
inches are possible between from Sunday morning to Monday 
morning, with local amounts near 8. This may impact locations 
such as Lookout Pass, Sherman Pass and Stevens Pass. 
Accumulations about the valleys are expected to be lighter. The 
Cascade valleys, north of Lake Chelan, and northeast Washington and 
north Idaho valleys could see 1 to 2 inches, with local amounts 
near 3 inches. Other areas such as the Waterville Plateau to the 
Spokane/c'da area, and the higher Palouse (north of pullman) 
could see anywhere from a trace to a half inch, with isolated 
amounts to 1 inch. 


On Monday a second wave comes in and keeps the precipitation 
threat high, at least away from the Lee of the Cascades and 
deeper Columbia Basin. Current timing suggests the higher threat 
with this second wave comes in Monday afternoon and evening, 
though the threat may not really end across the central Panhandle 
mountains after sunday's system. By this time snow levels look a 
bit higher, between 2.5 and 5.0kft, lowest toward the northern 
mountains. So more of valley rain and mountain snow event is 
projected. However a rain/snow mix cannot be ruled out along and 
north of Highway 2 in the morning and night hours. 


From Tuesday to Thursday the region remains in a more progressive 
pattern, with the passage of occasional shortwaves with 
intermittent wet and dry periods. Through the period the highest 
threat will be in the windward facing slopes, I.E. The Cascade 
crest and the northeast Washington and Idaho Panhandle mountains. 
Occasionally the threat will ramp up across the valleys and basin 
areas, tied to the precise timing of those waves. However model 
consistency on that point is poor. Loose agreement suggests a 
drier period between Tuesday and Wednesday, or at least a shift of 
the higher precipitation threat toward the Washington/or border and lower 
Panhandle southward, before the threat rises again toward 
Thursday. Look for a continued valley rain and mountain snow 
threat during the day, with a possible rain/snow mix in the 
valleys during the night and morning hours. /J cote' 




&& 


Aviation... 
06z tafs: light winds and clear skies aloft will continue to bring 
widespread restrictions from fog and stratus through the next 24 
hours. Fog will impact kgeg/ksff/kcoe/kpuw and possibly klws 
while keat/kmwh will largely contend with stratus. Minor 
improvements will be noted at all sites as the fog lifts to more 
of a stratus deck midday, but all sites will stay in IFR or MVFR 
conditions. The stratus is expected to lower once again late 
evening as low level inversions strengthen. Some light drizzle 
late in the evening for the kgeg/ksff/kcoe sites will be possible 
as a weak shortwave passes to our north. Overnight expect the 
return of IFR/LIFR conditions. /Fliehman
