NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
1046 PM PDT sun Sep 21 2014 


Synopsis... 
warmer-than-normal temperatures are expected through at least 
Tuesday. A pattern change will occur by mid week, and more early 
autumn-like weather will be common over the inland northwest to 
finish out the week. A slight warming and drying trend is expected 
to occur next weekend. 


&& 


Discussion... 
tonight and monday: our upper level ridge will be shunted eastward 
over the next couple of days. The "rex block" set up with high 
pressure over the northern rockies and low pressure over the Great 
Basin will erode as a longwave trough off the coast slowly 
advances toward the Pacific northwest. We will be monitoring mid 
and high level moisture associated with the Great Basin low 
tonight into Monday as it is advected northeastward. At this time, 
the GFS, NAM and European model (ecmwf) produce some shallow, high-based 
instability from early morning Monday through Tuesday which may be 
sufficient for light showers or sprinkles. Theta-E lapse rates 
between 700-500mb suggest a small chance for precipitation over 
the Cascades around sunrise then spreading eastward during the day 
and evening on Monday. With cloud bases at or above ten thousand 
feet there may be more virga on Monday than precipitation reaching 
the ground. The best surface based instability looks to be over 
central and northeast Oregon Monday afternoon and evening where a 
few stronger showers and thunderstorms may develop. It is not out 
of the question that a stray thunderstorm could develop over The 
Blues of southeast Washington. Temperatures will remain well above 
average for mid to late September, but should be 2 to 4 degrees 
cooler Monday than Sunday due to more cloud cover. /Gkoch 


Tuesday through Wednesday night: a slow-moving trough will be 
inching toward the inland northwest, transitioning our flow to a 
more moist South-West to southerly flow pattern by Wednesday. 
There are a few challenges with this storm system. One will be 
precipitation chances and cloud cover, which will then affect how 
warm our temperatures get. The first shortwave rotates through 
eastern Washington/Idaho Panhandle Tuesday, but doesn't have whole 
lot of upper level support. Much of the lift associated with the 
trough will be hanging back over western Washington into the 
Cascades. But pwats approach or even exceed one inch, so any 
shower that can develop will be wet, just maybe not widespread. 
A weak warm front will move north as well on Tuesday and continue 
into Wednesday over eastern portions of the region (far East 
Washington/Idaho panhandle). This will keep temperatures continued 
warm, but increasing cloud cover for much of basin and points west 
will keep temperatures cooler there. 


Precipitation chances on Wednesday and Wednesday night were 
confined over the Cascades, with smaller chances further east 
into the basin. Mostly dry weather is expected over the Idaho 
Panhandle, until the trough finally moves onshore and moves over 
the region (late in the week). Again, temperatures over the 
precipitation-free regions will remain on the warm side of 
normal, while cooling temperatures are expected further west as 
the cooling affects of the trough move further east. Precipitation 
chances will still remain highest over the Cascades through 
Wednesday night. TY 


Thursday through Sunday...longwave pattern change well underway at 
the beginning of this forecast interval as the jet stream lingers 
overhead in a south to north orientation along the eastern edge of 
a large and narrow trof with an axis offshore. By late Saturday 
the large low pressure area is showing signs of splitting with a 
large portion of if forming a large closed low to the south of 
Washington and north Idaho. A col or Saddle Point is whats left 
over Washington and north Idaho for Saturday that elongates and 
weakens Sunday which leaves potential for the low to the south to 
eject mesoscale shortwaves north/northwest and influence southeast 
Washington and southern Idaho. There is also potential for the 
trailing edge of the northern branch of the exiting jet 
stream/baroclinic band to act as a focus for minor showers to the 
extreme north near the British Columbia border. That would leave 
the Spokane/coeur d' Alene corridor in between and closer to the 
bisecting axis of the col/Saddle Point and as such that locations 
will hold on to lower pops in comparison to locations to the north 
and south of the corridor. With such a seasonable trof overhead 
forecast high temperatures show a pronounced drop and are in line 
with normals for this time of year while the expectation there 
will be enough lingering cloud cover, lower level moisture, and 
mixing to keep overnight lows from dropping too drastically. It 
should be fairly breezy and gusty with the jet stream overhead 
Thursday and Friday with some decrease in wind and gusts Saturday 
and Sunday. /Pelatti 


&& 


Aviation... 
06z tafs: some mid level clouds will move north from an upper low 
over the Great Basin thru Monday. Smoke from the fire near 
grangville may reduce visibilities at Lewiston and Pullman thru 
midday Monday and then increasing westerly flow should keep the 
smoke east of these areas later Monday and Monday night. Jl
