Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Air Quality Alert  Statement as of 11:29 am PDT on August 27, 2015


... Air quality alert in effect until further notice...

An air quality alert has been issued by the following agencies:

Washington department of ecology in Spokane
Idaho department of environmental quality in Lewiston
Washington department of ecology in Yakima
Idaho department of environmental quality in Coeur D'Alene
Nez Perce tribe
Colville confederated tribes
Spokane tribe
kalispel Indian community
Coeur D'Alene tribe
Spokane regional clean air agency
Kootenai tribe of Idaho

Elevated concentrations of wildfire smoke from area fires
continues across eastern Washington and north Idaho. Additionally,
blowing dust is expected over much of the area on Saturday. All
areas east of the Cascades and into north Idaho can continue to
expect poor air quality through the weekend. There may be times
and locations where the air quality improves to the good category,
but this is not expected to persist.

Precautions to be taken for areas experiencing increased smoke and
reduced air quality include:

*everyone should avoid heavy work or exercise outdoors when the
air quality index reaches unhealthy levels.

*Older adults, small children, and those with respiratory
conditions or heart disease may be more sensitive to poor air
quality and should stay indoors and avoid heavy work when air
quality reaches unhealthy levels.

*Drink plenty of water. Staying hydrated helps dilute phlegm in
the respiratory tract, making it easier to cough out smoke
particles. Plan on coughing; it is nature's way of clearing your
lungs. Avoid caffeine products, sugary drinks and alcohol because
they have dehydrating effects.

*Stay cool when the weather is warm. Run your air conditioner to
recirculate air. Turn The Fan blower on manually so it
continuously filters the air in your home.

*If working outside, use a dust mask... n95 or n100. If a dusk mask
is not available, cover your nose and mouth with a damp
handkerchief.

This air quality alert will be reevaluated by Monday at noon.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
1104 am PDT Thursday Aug 27 2015 


Synopsis... 
a southwest wind will increase in the afternoon which should help 
to disperse the smoke a bit, but also brings a cause for concern 
on area wildfires. A very strong cold front is expected to arrive 
on Saturday, bringing windy conditions to the inland northwest but 
also some much needed rain to portions of the area. Blowing dust 
will be a concern by Saturday afternoon. A cooler and occasionally 
breezy regime with some shower activity will persist through the 
next week. 


&& 


Discussion... 
today and tonight: we remain under high pressure with a low 
pressure system moving closer to the West Coast. Some clouds will 
move through the area this morning. Inversions will remain strong 
through the morning and thus keep the smoke across most of the 
lower elevations. This afternoon winds will increase from the 
southwest. Widespread winds of 10 to 15 mph will be likely across 
most locations. Portions of the Columbia Basin, Waterville 
Plateau, western Spokane co as well as southern Pend Oreille, 
Stevens and Ferry counties will see slightly stronger winds. 
Sustained southwest winds 13 to 18 mph with gusts up to 25 mph 
combined with low daytime relative humidities will create critical 
fire conditions for existing fires. Will continue the red flag 
warning from 1 to 8 PM today. With the increased winds we should 
see the smoke disperse or thin during the afternoon and evening 
hours. The winds will begin to subside around sunset and the smoke 
will likely return overnight. Clouds will increase from the west 
overnight as the low pressure system moves closer to shore. 
/Nisbet 


Friday through Wednesday...it appears some major changes are afoot 
in the extended term with all the latest models coming on board 
with a depiction of a more progressive...cooler and potentially 
wetter pattern...at least wetter for some portions of the 
forecast area. While Friday appears to be another warm and largely 
dry day over the region...by Friday night and Saturday the large 
offshore closed low visible on satellite will eject inland across 
the region bringing some much needed rain right where we need 
it...mainly in the Cascades but also a growing chance of scattered 
to widespread showers across the northern tier zones. It is not 
yet clear whether enough rain will fall in enough places to make a 
huge difference in the fire fighting efforts but the cooler 
temperatures and what precipitation does reach the ground will 
help somewhat. The best guess at this time for Friday night 
through Saturday appears to support a half an inch to over 1 inch 
in the Cascades dependent on elevation and distance from the 
crest...and anywhere from a tenth to a quarter of an inch across 
the northern tier zones. 


More rain is possible with a series of follow up waves and and 
fronts through the week as a general troffy pattern becomes 
established. Confidence is quite high that the entire period after 
Friday will be cooler than average. The precipitation outlook is 
a bit less certain after Saturday but at least a few mountain 
showers every day is a plausible scenario. 


The main threat issue will be breezy to windy conditions 
particularly on Saturday with the main leading cold 
front...especially over the basin but the gradient development and 
especially the gust potential from mixing in the Post frontal 
air mass will promote 20 to 30 mph gusts over exposed terrain 
through out the region. Occasionally breezy conditions will linger 
through much of the week in a cooler and more progressive maritime 
regime. /Fugazzi 


&& 


Aviation... 
18z tafs: the region will be sandwiched between low pressure in 
the eastern Pacific and high pressure over the rookies. A cold 
front will linger offshore through Friday morning. The proximity 
of the front will promote better mixing today. This is expected to 
result in at least some improvement to the smoke across the basin 
and for many of the taf sites. Klws will have a more difficult 
time mixing out today and is expected to remain MVFR through at 
least this afternoon. Wind gusts to between 15-22 kts will be 
possible in the afternoon. /Svh
