Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
508 am PDT Thursday Apr 17 2014 


Synopsis... 
a strong and wet Pacific weather system will result in widespread 
rain Thursday and Thursday night, with windy conditions late 
tonight into Friday. A weaker front will bring mainly windy 
conditions Saturday afternoon and night. Easter Sunday should be 
mild and mainly dry. Showers will be more prevalent for the first 
part of next week.

Discussion... 


..a strong weather system featuring moderate rainfall today and 
gusty winds late tonight into Friday... 


Today through friday: satellite imagery shows a very dynamic low 
pressure system pushing into western Washington at around 2:30 am. The 
cold front with this system is beginning to cross 130w with well 
defined darkening behind the front noticeable on the water vapor 
imagery. Strong isentropic ascent will develop ahead of the front 
across eastern Washington and into the Idaho Panhandle. All areas will see a 
good chance for some rain this morning into the afternoon. 
Heaviest accumulations will likely be across the eastern two- 
thirds of the forecast area as we will see some downsloping taking 
place along the Lee side of the Cascades. Strong frontal forcing 
is expected to result in a period of moderate to heavy rainfall 
along the cold front late this afternoon into this evening. Mid 
level laps rates will steepen to 7-9 c/km between 700-500 mbs. 
This destabilization will result in roughly 200 j/kg of cape with 
cloud tops potentially topping out above 20 kft. The instability 
is decent, but I would like to see a bit more to have higher 
confidence for thunderstorms. Nevertheless, the dynamics will be 
quite strong with this system and could be enough to overcome the 
instability deficiencies. Best chances for thunderstorms will be 
right along and behind the cold front. This will mainly be for the 
late afternoon and evening hours for the western portion of the 
forecast area and shifting eastward overnight as the upper level 
shortwave trough moves into the region. 


Gusty winds can be anticipate with the front overnight. 850 mb 
winds will be up around 30-40 kts. There shouldn't be a problem 
mixing down these stronger winds with how strong the front will be and 
advisory level strength will be possible; however, confidence at 
this time is too low for a highlight. Any thunderstorms that do 
develop will also be capable of producing even stronger gusts. 
Most areas are expected to see sustained winds of 20-30 mph with 
gusts up to 40 mph possible for late tonight and continuing into 
Friday morning. Winds will remain breezy into Friday afternoon, 
but strongest winds will likely occur with and directly behind the 
front. 


A cold and rainy Spring day is expected today with highs only 
getting into the 50s, and some areas may not warm above the 50 
degree mark especially in the Panhandle. Temperatures will remain 
below normal on Friday, but should be warmer compared to today 
with a good chance for sun as much drier air filters in behind 
this system. /Svh 


Friday night through monday: in the wake of the Thursday/Friday 
rain, skies will clear Friday night and winds will subside, 
allowing for fog formation in the usual valley locations. There's 
a decent amount of dry air that moves in behind the cold front 
though, so the fog and low clouds shouldn't be very extensive. 
Otherwise Saturday looks to be a warm and sunny day. But this is 
short-lived as the next Pacific system will reach the Cascade 
crest by the late afternoon. This front is entirely different 
beast than our Thursday/Friday system. Instead, moisture is 
largely confined in the mid-layers of the atmosphere. This favors 
just light precipitation over the mountains and nothing over the 
basin. 


The more noteworthy part of this system will be the winds. The 
cold front will pass through the area Saturday afternoon/evening 
bringing gusty winds to the area. At this point I went with gusts 
to 30 or 35 mph. We'll need to keep an eye on this forecast as 
the winds could be a bit stronger than this. 


Easter Sunday looks mostly dry with more sun than clouds. The 
exception will be over the Cascades, the northeast mountains, and 
the northern Panhandle, where a few showers may develop. 


Monday will see yet another weak Pacific front. Similar to its 
predecessor, the majority of the moisture will be in the mid and 
upper atmosphere. So again, mountains will be favored with little 
or nothing in the lower elevations, especially in the basin. Rj 


Tuesday through thursday: a more unsettled weather pattern will 
overspread the inland northwest for the early/middle portion of 
next week. A large scale trough, which is fairly well agreed upon 
by the extended models, will begin to move inland by Tuesday, with 
another round of precipitation affecting much of the region. How 
much is still a little more in question, but the potential exists 
for this trough to briefly tap into a better moisture tap in 
southwest flow, which could give some heavier rainfall amounts to mainly 
eastern Washington and the Idaho Panhandle Tuesday and/or Tuesday 
night. Afterwards, the better chances for precipitation would move 
to the east. While the more organized precipitation would be east 
of the region by Wednesday, the cold pool aloft associated with 
the larger trough will still be overhead. This would promote more 
scattered afternoon showers during the afternoon hours, with a 
drying trend going into Thursday. 


With regards to temperatures, readings look to remain on the cool 
side with precipitation Tuesday (3 to 5 degrees below normal), 
with maybe a slight warming trend Wednesday and Thursday. TY 


&& 


Aviation... 
12z tafs: a moist Pacific storm system will spread light to 
moderate rain across the region today into this evening. Cigs and 
vis will lower into MVFR/IFR category through about 06z-10z 
before significant drying behind the cold front scours out the low 
level moisture. Winds will then become gusty behind the front by 
the early morning hours on Friday. There is enough forcing and 
instability with this system that some isolated thunderstorms will 
be possible as the upper level trough moves through late this 
afternoon into tonight; however, confidence is too low to include 
thunderstorms in the tafs at this time. /Svh
