NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
511 PM PDT Tuesday Oct 21 2014 


Synopsis... 
a cold front exits to east this evening, leaving only some isolated 
showers in the Idaho Panhandle. From late Tuesday night through 
Wednesday night, the next frontal wave and round of precipitation 
comes through. The active pattern continues into early next week, 
with the potential for more widespread rain late Friday into 
Saturday, then again late Monday into next Tuesday, as moisture 
associated with former typhoons makes its way toward the Pacific 
northwest. 


&& 


Discussion... 
..a moist Pacific storm with sub-tropical connections to bring 
heavy rains across the inland northwest Wednesday into Thursday... 


Tonight through wednesday: satellite imagery shows a deep upper 
level low pressure system circulating in the Gulf Alaska. Water 
vapor imagery shows a deep fetch of moisture extending out along 
40n to an area of sub-tropical convection in the central Pacific. 
Model guidance indicates p-wats of up around 1.25 inches directed 
toward the Pacific northwest. Much of this moisture content will 
be squeezed out along the windward slopes of the northern Cascade 
mtns, but more than enough of this moisture is expected to 
translate east of the Cascades for soaking rains across much of 
the region beginning tonight. 


The warm front shows up rather nicely on satellite, which 
currently is just off the Washington/or coast. There is a good amount of 
enhancement on both the water vapor and infrared satellite imagery in 
the warm sector of the low behind the leading edge of the warm 
front. This will be the area to keep an eye on trough tonight for 
periods of moderate to heavy rain. Much of this rainfall will 
remain along the Cascade crest this evening into the early 
portions of the overnight period. This moisture will begin to 
push east of the Cascade mtns early Wednesday morning. Strong 
isentropic ascent will occur across the northwestern portion of 
the forecast area with much of the precip falling northwest of a 
line from about Ritzville to Sandpoint. Much of the southeastern 
portion of the forecast area will have to wait for rain until the 
cold front pushes further onshore after tomorrow afternoon. 


*Rain amounts: easterly to southeasterly winds at low levels will 
result in good upslope flow into the east slopes of the northern 
Cascades over into the Okanogan Highlands. These areas are 
expected to see a range of 0.75-1.50 inches of rainfall over a 24 
hour period tonight through Wednesday. Higher amounts closer to 2 
inches will be possible up near the Cascade crest. The Wenatchee 
area, Waterville Plateau and Okanogan Vly will see rainfall 
amounts closer to a half of an inch over this period; and the 
Moses Lake area, upper Columbia Basin into the northeast mtns 
will see rainfall amounts between 0.10 to around 0.25 inches 
through Wednesday. 


*Impacts: there is a small chance for some rises to small streams 
and mud slides due to heavy rain. The primary area of concern 
will be along the east slopes of the northern Cascade mtns and 
primarily in or near recent burn scars. Rainfall intensity will 
likely not be strong enough for flash flooding concerns; however, 
rainfall on recent burn scars will likely lead to more rapid 
runoff than normally observed in these kind of events. 


*Snow: snow levels will be up around 6,500 feet through this 
period. This will result in snow only up over the highest peaks 
and primarily over the peaks in the Cascades. 


*Winds: a southeasterly surface pressure gradient will tighten tonight 
into Wednesday. Winds at 850 mbs will increase up to around 30-35 
kts. Since the region will be exclusively in the warm sector 
during this period, mixing will be limited somewhat; this will be 
especially so in locations where it is raining. A better chance 
for better mixing will be across the basin over into the central 
Panhandle mtns where the rain will take a bit longer to form. 
This is expected to result in breezy southerly winds with 
sustained speeds of around 15-20 mph and gusts up to around 25-30 
mph. 


*Temperatures: expect cooler temperatures with the rain to across 
the northwest portion of the forecast area on Wednesday. High 
temperatures will be more mild across the southeast portion of 
the forecast area and about 5 to 8 degrees above normal. /Svh 


Wednesday night through Friday night: an active weather pattern 
continues with a parade of systems tapping some subtropical 
moisture. First from Wednesday evening through Thursday morning a 
cold front pushes across the Cascades and advances toward Idaho 
overnight into Thursday morning. Driven east by a mid-level 
disturbance and a 130kt jet stream, this system is featuring 
modest lift. The subtropical moisture plume directed into the 
region ahead of this boundary pushes pwats up toward 0.60 to 1.0 
inches (or 150-240% of normal). This combination of lift and 
moisture will bring likely rain between Wednesday night and early 
Thursday morning across a large portion of eastern Washington and north 
Idaho. The lowest threat will be toward the l-c valley and Camas 
Prairie, especially before Thursday morning, and chances will 
begin to wane in the Lee of the Cascades late in the evening to 
overnight. 


From Thursday morning to early Thursday evening the frontal 
boundary stalls near the central Idaho/Montana border through northeast 
or, just south of Lookout Pass to the Blue Mountains, with the jet 
just north of the front. Regional pwats drop to between 0.40 to 
0.70 inches (or 100-170% of normal). This is still a decent amount 
of moisture. The proximity of the front and the enhanced lift near 
the lfq of the jet will keep precipitation likely across the Idaho 
Panhandle through The Blues and near the Cascade crest. Chances 
will also remain moderately high across the eastern third of WA, 
with the proximity of that lfq of the jet, but will be waning in 
the Lee of the Cascades. 


From late Thursday evening to Friday morning the atmosphere dries 
out a little more, with the core of deeper plume of moisture 
briefly sagging toward southern Oregon. This plus weak shortwave 
ridging nosing in ahead of the next system will further decrease 
the precipitation through this period. The best chances of 
precipitation during this time frame will be near southeast Washington and 
the Idaho Panhandle mountains, as well as near the Cascade crest. 


From Friday afternoon through Friday night the next low pressure 
system deepens as it lifts north from the California/or coast toward the 
Washington/or coast. With the increased southerly flow a warm front lifts 
into the region, with the plume of subtropical moisture coming 
back north with it. Models suggest this should evolve as a band of 
precipitation which envelopes areas along the Washington/or border through 
the Idaho clearwaters by later Friday afternoon, then lifts north 
across much of remainder of central and eastern Washington and north Idaho 
early Friday evening, before the focus lifts toward the northern 
mountains and backs against the Cascades overnight into Saturday 
morning. So some modest precipitation amounts are possible: 
potentially between a tenth and a quarter of an inch, with local 
amounts over a half inch to an inch toward the Cascades. This 
could mean some slow rises on creeks and streams and other waterways 
near the Cascades, with minor mudslides/debris flows. /J. Cote' 


Saturday through Tuesday...a trough off the coast starts moving 
in on Saturday with a decent cold front, gusty winds with near 
or above normal temperatures and higher mountain snow. Sunday 
will see a high pressure ridge building in for a brief break in 
the weather. Then for Monday into Monday night, there will be the 
next wet weather system on the way with Pacific moisture moving 
in. After that it will be a fairly active weather pattern in the 
future with multiple storm systems from the west especially for 
the mountains but overall, no severe weather is expected for this 
time of the forecast. /Tc 


&& 


Aviation... 
00z tafs: low level flow will back to out of the southeast 
overnight as a moist Pacific storm system approaches the region. 
Strong warm air advection should clear out the low clouds tonight 
with rainfall forming northwest of a line from kmwh to kcqv by 
Wednesday morning. Keat will likely see light rain developing 
after 12z with cigs lowering to MVFR category. Light rain will 
spread east to kmwh around 16z, then to remaining taf sites after 
20z. Low level wind shear will become a concern as well with 
winds increasing significantly off the surface and veering to out 
of the southwest, however, low level wind shear is not mentioned 
in the tafs as it does not look to be strong enough. /Ek
