NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Spokane Washington 
236 PM PDT Tuesday Jul 22 2014 


Synopsis... 
a strong storm system will move through the region tonight and 
Wednesday bringing the potential for thunderstorms and heavy rain. 
Cool and windy weather is expected for Thursday. Temperatures 
will rebound by the weekend and be accompanied by dry conditions. 
Hot weather will return to the area on Sunday and early next week. 


&& 


Discussion... 
tonight through Wednesday night: a very active pattern is expected 
over the inland northwest in the next 36 hours. Much of northeast 
or, into extreme southeast Washington and into the central Panhandle mtns 
has seen a good amount of sunshine through the first half of 
today. This has destabilized the atmosphere with thunderstorms 
popping up across much of northeast or this afternoon. Further 
north into southeast Washington we still remain capped and less unstable. 
I expect much of this thunderstorm activity will weaken as it 
progresses northward through at least the early portions of the 
afternoon. Mid level lapse rates will become more unstable through 
the evening into tonight with most unstable CAPES (or mucapes) of 
around 200-400 j/kg between the 700-300 mb layer. The best 
instability closer to 400 j/kg in this layer will be across the 
southeast portion of the forecast area this evening (generally 
over the Palouse to the central Panhandle mtns and points 
southward). We will also see some large scale forcing occurring 
with a shortwave moving northward out of California into Oregon. 
The southeast portion of the forecast area will also be in the 
left exit region of a 100 kt jet streak. This forcing combined 
with the increasing instability should result in some stronger 
thunderstorms developing across the southeast portion of the 
forecast area. Gusty outflow winds and small hail will be the 
primary thunderstorm threat. I would not be surprised if some 
thunderstorms approach severe levels. 


The threat for thunderstorms will increase northward across the 
region overnight. MUCAPES away from the southeast portion of the 
forecast area will not be as exciting closer to 200 j/kg in the 
700-300 mb layer. This will be sufficient for the possibility of 
isolated thunderstorms. The mid level front offshore associated 
with the upper level low pressure system will begin to approach 
the Cascades Wednesday morning. A band of moderate to heavy 
rainfall is expected to form out ahead of the front. There will 
also be the possibility for some thunderstorms embedded in this 
ran band that may produce more intense rainfall rates. 
Thunderstorms will continue to be possible over the Cascades 
through the afternoon into the evening as the cold pool aloft 
shifts over this area of the region. Rapid runoff from the heavy 
rain is expected. Debris or mud flows will also be possible with 
the highest concern for recent burn scared areas. A Flash Flood 
Watch has been issued to cover this threat and is in effect for 
Wednesday morning through Wednesday evening. 


Severe weather will also be possible Wednesday afternoon/evening, 
mainly across the eastern half of the forecast area. The upper 
level low will push across the Cascades just after peak heating. 
Very strong upper level dynamics will accompany this wave. 
Instability is a little bit of a question mark as there will be a 
substantial amount of cloud cover along the mid level front. The 
best possibility for sun breaks and instability will be in the 
Panhandle where the best severe threat will be. Main threats will 
be for outflow winds and hail. P-wats will also be up around an 
inch, so these thunderstorms will be very wet. The good news is 
that storm motion will be quick will move at approximately 25-30 
mph to the northeast. 


Winds will become gusty behind the cold front on Wednesday. Expect 
sustained winds of 20-25 mph across the basin with gusts up to 
30-35 mph by the late afternoon hours. /Svh 


Thursday through Saturday night: a deep closed low will be moving 
over the forecast area on Thursday. This low is anomalously deep 
for this time of year. And the result will be much cooler 
temperatures. In fact, some locations north and east of Spokane 
won't even reach 70f for a high. The clouds and showers should be 
confined across the northern locations (north of Highway 2). We 
could also see a few thunderstorms near the Canadian border. The 
cold air aloft will cause the atmosphere to be unstable, but the 
low moves east of our area during the afternoon, so the timing is 
not optimal. The other aspect of Thursday will be the wind, 20-30 
mph. Combined with the cooler temperatures, this will make for a 
decidedly non-summerlike day. 


The low moves out of the area Thursday night as high pressure 
builds into the area. This will bring dry weather with a gradual 
warming trend. Rj 


Sunday thru Tuesday... ec and GFS in good agreement on overall 
pattern thru this period. Strong ridging over the region on Sunday 
moves slightly east as a short wave moves onshore over the central 
British Columbia coast and the Alaska Panhandle. Flow shifts to weak southwesterly 
but models keep most of the precipitation and moisture well south 
and east of the area. Above average temperatures on Sunday will 
bump up a few degrees on Monday and Tuesday with little or no 
chance of precipitation. Jl 


&& 


Aviation... 
18z tafs: a low pressure system circulating off of southeast British Columbia 
will continue to push moisture across the inland northwest. Much 
of the showers through the early afternoon will be north of the 
taf sites. However, the atmosphere will destabilize late this 
afternoon with a redevelopment of showers and thunderstorms 
into tonight. The strongest thunderstorms are expected to develop 
over northeast or and track into southeast Washington and into the central 
portions of the Idaho Panhandle. Gusty outflow winds and small hail 
will be possible with these thunderstorms through the evening.
