NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
351 am PST Thursday Dec 18 2014 


Synopsis... 
a more active weather pattern will continue through the end of the 
week with periods of light snow in the mountains...and rain or 
snow in the valleys. Lower elevations from Interstate 90 south 
will see mainly rain...while areas in the Cascades and near the 
Canadian border will remain mainly snow. A much stronger weather 
system over the weekend will usher in warmer temperatures with 
sharply rising snow levels...as well as the potential for windy 
conditions. 


&& 


Discussion... 
today through Friday night...a weak cold front and accompanying 
trough is moving through the forecast early this morning and will 
be followed by a weak ridge of high pressure today. Radar is 
indicating rain and snow showers across the east and southeast 
zones this morning as the front moves out of the area. Road 
temperatures are warm enough that any snow that does fall should 
melt. The exception will be over Lookout Pass where they could get 
an inch or two through the early morning. Up-sloping flow will 
keep rain and snow showers across the Panhandle through the day 
with light accumulations expected, otherwise we should see a brief 
break in the weather today. Expect areas of fog and stratus to 
linger over the lower elevations and northern valleys through the 
morning. 


As mentioned above the break will be brief as another wet weather 
system will move in off the Pacific tonight and track across the 
forecast area on Friday. Moisture is plentiful with pwat's rising 
to almost 200 percent of normal. South-southeast lower level flow 
overnight will overcome the shadow effect off the Cascades and all 
areas will see measurable precipitation. The cold front will track 
across the region during the day Friday and result in a drying 
trend from west to east Friday afternoon. 


This same southerly flow will allow warm air to rapidly advect 
into the region through the night. So we are expecting mainly 
valley rain and mountain snow. The challenge is the cooler air in 
the Cascade valleys...chiefly the Methow Valley and the Okanogan 
Valley. Model guidance has been to cool in these valleys the past 
few days and it looks like the 00z runs are following that trend. 
That does not mean that these valleys will not see snow, just 
possibly not as much as expected. This could easily result in a 
busted forecast for these valleys. For now it looks like the 
Methow Valley will pick up 1-3 inches of snow. The current models 
sure want to scour out the remainder of the valleys and the 
Waterville Plateau as the warm air move through the area. These 
areas could still pick up 1-2 inches above 1500-2000 feet before 
turning over to rain. For the mountains 2-5 inches are likely with 
a few inches more up near the crest of the Cascades. For the 
Wenatchee valley and along the Columbia River across to Spokane 
and Coeur D'Alene the precipitation could start as wet snow or a 
rain/snow mix before turning over to all rain through the night. 


Some showers will linger across the Cascade crest and up-sloping 
into the Panhandle will keep a pretty good chance of rain and snow 
showers Friday night. Otherwise expect drier conditions for the 
remainder of the forecast area. Tobin 


Saturday through Sunday night...one very wet period. An atmospheric 
river will take aim on the Pacific northwest. The GFS and European model (ecmwf) show 
agreement of moderate isentropic lift spreading across the region 
Saturday morning with a stream of plentiful moisture for most of 
the weekend. Pwats of over an inch pool off the coast with up to 
0.75" of inch making it east of the Cascades. Again precipitation 
type will be tricky. Snow levels will be stubborn in the northern 
valleys, especially in the Cascade valleys where some light to 
moderate snow is possible. Warming increases Saturday night into 
Sunday, making it a mainly rain/High Mountain snow event by Sunday 
afternoon. In this transition, there is a small chance of a wintry 
mix with pockets of freezing rain in a few of the Cascade valleys. 
The 850mb 0c line pushes to the Canadian border on Sunday. Sunday 
appears to be the warmest day with widespread 40s and a few 50s 
possible. Quantitative precipitation forecast looks juicy with a 0.25" to 0.40" possible from 
Saturday afternoon into Sunday morning. Gusty winds will increase 
Saturday night into Sunday evening with speeds 25-40 kts across 
the Columbia Basin. Gusty winds will continue in the mountains 
through night, especially in the Cascades. 


Monday through Wednesday...a cold front slides through the region 
early Monday allowing the atmospheric river to sag southward and 
cooler drier air to filter in from the north. The bulk of the 
precipitation will continue to be found near the Cascade crest and 
central Panhandle mountains through Monday through Monday evening 
and then gradually taper off. A few lingering showers are possible 
by early Monday morning across the northern mountains, but for the 
most part partial clearing can be expected will allow temperatures 
to cool late Monday night and into Tuesday. With the northwest 
flow aloft, a disturbance is expected to drop down from the Gulf 
of Alaska. In the 00z model runs this feature looks to swing wide 
and drops west and south of the region, with the main brunt of the 
precipitation found across Oregon. Opted to continue a drier 
forecast through mid week with the best chance of snow falling 
near the Cascade crest, Blue Mountains and central Panhandle 
mountains. / Rfox. 


&& 


Aviation... 
12z tafs: light rain and snow showers will be possible across the 
eastern taf sites through 15-16z this morning with MVFR/VFR 
conditions for kgeg-kcoe corridor and kpuw...VFR conditions at 
klws. Improvements in both cigs/vsby expected after 18-20z. 
Further to the west the southeast gradient will keep cigs/vsby 
mainly VFR with conditions slipping to IFR at times through the 
morning. These conditions should also improve after 20z. Another 
weather system will increase the moisture and chances for 
precipitaion beginning at keat around 03z and spreading east. 
Although the best chance for the eastern taf sites may hold off 
until after 12z. This will result in another deterioration in 
cigs/vsby. Precipitation as a rain/snow mix at keat but turning 
to quickly to -ra...otherwise precip as -ra. Tobin
