NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
338 PM PST Friday Feb 5 2016 


Synopsis... 
another frontal system will arrive tonight bringing rain to The 
Lowlands and snow to the mountains. It will become windy after 
midnight tonight with gusts up to 45 mph over southeast 
Washington, the Palouse, and West Plains. Dry weather and light 
winds will develop on Sunday and continue through mid week as a 
strong high pressure system sets up over the region. More active 
weather is expected by the end of the work week. 


&& 


Discussion... 
..windy conditions tonight into Saturday morning... 


Tonight and saturday: a dynamic shortwave trough of lower pressure 
will race across the region tonight. Satellite imagery shows the 
cold front just off the coast of Washington at around 2:00 PM this 
afternoon. The water vapor channel indicates good darkening 
immediately behind the front. This is a good signal that once the 
precip shuts off, we will see low clouds mixing out and stronger 
winds aloft mixing down. Precip will mainly be confined right 
along the cold front for most areas. This will result in a short 
duration precip event of between 2-4 hours. The exceptions will be 
the east slopes of the northern Cascades and the Idaho Panhandle. 


The slop over precip across the Cascade crest has the potential 
to extend a bit further into the east slopes more than usual as 
high resolution models (i.E. Hrrr) indicate a moderately strong 
Puget Sound convergent zone (pscz) setting up. Snow fall amounts 
in the east slopes of the northern Cascades will likely be fairly 
light with the front this evening, but snowfall rates may be quite 
heavy underneath the pscz through the overnight hours. The hrrr 
model shows this convergent zone first extending over the Methow 
Valley late in the evening through about 2:00 am and then 
concentrating further south between plain and Lake Chelan late 
tonight into Saturday morning. It is not uncommon to see snowfall 
rates of 1-2 inches per hour underneath the pscz due to the 
convective nature of the snowfall. Because of this, we have made a 
minor adjustment to the Winter Weather Advisory to include plain 
and locations along Lake Chelan such as Lucerne. 


Snowfall amounts are not expected to be as heavy across the Idaho 
Panhandle, but some ongoing snow showers are expected to continue 
through Saturday morning. Some showers may be on the heavier side 
behind the cold front as lapse rates steepen a bit. The main 
impact will be going over Lookout Pass where around 2-4 inches of 
snow will be possible. 


The other impact with this storm system will be for some windy 
conditions. The GFS model indicates the strongest potential for 
winds. It shows winds up at 850 mbs of up around 50 kts, but other 
model guidance are closer to 40-45 kts. There will be decent cold 
air advection with the passage of the cold front with a degree of 
confidence that these stronger winds aloft will be able to mix 
down to the surface despite a nighttime passage. Strongest wind 
gusts are expected to take place across the Spokane area, on the 
Palouse, and in the northeast blue mtns (including around Pomeroy 
and over Alpowa summit). Strongest gust will likely occur with 
cold front passage late tonight into early Saturday morning in the 
range of 40-45 mph. Winds will then be generally breezy for the 
rest of the day on Saturday. Gust potential will be borderline 
advisory criteria, but confidence is low and duration will likely 
be fairly short if achieved. /Svh 


Saturday night through Friday...model agreement is good and 
consistent for multiple runs now in depicting a strong upper level 
ridge over the region from Sunday through Wednesday. Confidence 
is high for a run of dry weather after lingering snow showers from 
saturday's system die out over the Idaho Panhandle. The areal 
extent of at least morning fog and low clouds...potentially 
deteriorating air quality and temperatures will be the main 
forecast problems during this strong ridge inversion scenario. 


The region may be broken out into three distinct areas of varying 
weather. Firstly...over the Palouse and points south as far west 
as Ritzville or so a persistent easterly gradient will likely keep 
fog and low clouds to a minimum and allow temperatures to elevate 
int the solid 40s and even into the 50s by mid week. 


The easterly gradient will serve to pool an increasingly moist and 
stagnant boundary layer in the deep basin and Cascades 
valleys...banked against the mountains. It is here where the best 
chance of significant fog and stratus and the lowest chance of 
daytime sun will be found. Also the coolest temperatures and 
weakest diurnal swings. 


Over the northern Columbia Basin and many of the valleys of 
northeast Washington and north Idaho a regime of overnight and 
morning fog and low clouds with at least partial sunshine in the 
afternoons and evenings look plausible...with the protected 
valleys north of the basin slowest to scrub each day. 


On or about Thursday models are coming into loose agreement on 
breaking down or at least substantially weakening the upper ridge 
with both the GFS and ec depicting a short wave passage either 
Wednesday night or Thursday...followed by a more active close to 
the work week with follow on waves. At this time none of these 
disturbances looks particularly strong or organized...but well 
Worth increasing precipitation chances for valley rain and 
mountain snow for late in the week. /Fugazzi 


&& 


Aviation... 
00z tafs: a strong cold front laying along the pac coast at 00z 
will pass through keat around 06z and through the eastern taf 
sites around 09z. Ahead and along this front expect mainly rain 
showers with possible MVFR ceilings...except a short period of 
snow at keat then changing to rain. Ahead of the front especially 
over the eastern taf sites low level wind shear is expected after sunset decouples 
the boundary layer until frontal passage. Breezy and gusty conditions will 
occur with the frontal passage with precipitation quickly tapering 
off...except for the Idaho Panhandle and possibly the kcoe taf 
site where upslope Post-frontal showers will continue into the 
morning hours. Generally decreasing winds and VFR conditions will 
prevail during the day Saturday. /Mjf
