NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
232 PM PDT Sat Mar 28 2015 


Synopsis... 
showers will linger...but quickly end...over the Idaho Panhandle 
very early in the evening. The gusty winds will also diminish 
significantly. The weather Sunday and Monday should be mild and 
relatively dry. Another fast moving front on Tuesday will bring 
more showers and windy conditions. The pattern of unsettled 
weather will continue through the work week. 


&& 


Discussion... 
tonight and sunday: with the rapid exit east of the unstable short- 
wave trough that helped to produce showers and very windy wx 
across ern WA and north Idaho today, we'll shortly transition into 
stable upper ridging overnight. The result will be dry wx, 
decreasing winds, and possibly some valley fog. Just offshore is a 
warm frontal boundary that will move quickly east through the 
region by midday Sunday that will keep skies mostly cloudy for 
most towns. As far as pcpn chances with this front, most model 
guidance shows very light amnts of rain for mainly NE WA and north 
Idaho coincident with the band of warm air advection/isentropic ascent. Pass 
level snow is possible, but accumulations will be light, if any, 
down to around 4500 ft. Confidence levels are low as far as a 
patchy light rain reaching the lower elevations such as Spokane. 
We have dry fcst attm. Bz 


Sunday night through monday: as remnants of the previous system 
continue to push out the region and a ridge pattern begins to 
build, the higher terrain of the Cascades and Idaho Panhandle 
could receive a rain shower. By Monday, the chance of precip is 
near non existent and warm and drier is pushes temperatures a few 
degrees higher than the previous days. 


..strong winds expected Tuesday... 


Beginning late Monday, early Tuesday, the ridge begins to 
breakdown as a cold front begins to press into the region. This is 
expected to bring rain showers for most populated locations in the 
region. Snow levels will be above 4500 feet. A combination of the 
cooler air aloft, orographic lift, and diurnal surface heating 
could produce an isolated thunderstorm in southeastern Washington 
and central Idaho region but the confidence is very low. The winds 
behind the front will be strong. Sustained winds of 20 to 30 miles per hour 
and gusts near 40 miles per hour are expected in the Columbia Basin. 
Temperatures are expected to be near the season normals for this 
time of year. /Jdc 


Tuesday night through Saturday...westerly flow in the wake of the 
departing cold front will give way to another upper level trough 
that will bring another round of precipitation to the inland 
northwest for Wednesday and Wednesday night. Windy conditions 
behind the front will subside overnight. The cold pool aloft will 
result in unstable conditions and a couple hundred j/kg of cape 
will be available for the late afternoon and early evening hours 
across the northern zones both Wednesday and Thursday but with 
little in the way of a warm front ahead of the trough, it appears 
that the atmosphere will be too cold for thunder but favorable for 
graupel showers. There will be a very brief break in the unsettled 
weather late Thursday or Friday as a transient ridge pops up 
between the exiting trough and the next one in line to affect the 
inland northwest. Models have yet come into agreement on the 
timing of the ridge but with lingering instability and westerly 
flow, the threat of isolated to scattered upslope showers will 
remain for the rising terrain east of the basin. Cold air aloft 
will Foster instability showers that could bring snow pellets down 
to most valley floors. The Pacific trough that will affect the 
region over the weekend will be deeper and colder than the mid 
week system but timing is again in question. If we manage to get 
partial clearing conditions during the overnight hours, there 
remains the possibility of sub-freezing temperatures for all but 
the lowest valleys but this is a low confidence forecast at this 
time. /Kelch 


&& 


Aviation... 
18z tafs: strong Post-frontal winds will impact the taf sites 
through mid to late afternoon today. West winds sustained 20 to 
25kts with gusts up to 35kts are expected with the highest gusts 
at kgeg and kpuw. Rain over the Idaho Panhandle will continue to 
decrease. A broken cumulus deck will likely bring a 2500 to 4000 
deck back to Coeur D'Alene, Sandpoint, and possibly Spokane felts 
by after 18-20z. Winds will diminish quickly with the setting 
sun.Bz
