Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Spokane WA
1033 PM PDT THU JUL 24 2014

.SYNOPSIS...Lingering showers will depart Northern Idaho this
evening. A cool and mostly clear night is expected across the
region coupled with decreasing winds. A dry warming trend is
expected through early next week.


&&

.DISCUSSION...
The upper level low that brought scattered showers to the area
today has moved off to the northeast. A few sprinkles may fall
over the northeast mts tonight but that will be about it for
precip. A cold pool aloft will remain over the northern tier and
could keep more cloud cover through the night. Evening update is to
adjust cloud cover and overnight temperatures. Rest of the
forecast is in good shape. A building ridge will put temperatures
on an upward trend along with dry conditions through the weekend.
/Kelch

&&

.AVIATION...
06Z TAFS: A low pressure system will exit to the north tonight,
allowing cloud cover and winds to diminish overnight. Building
high pressure will foster VFR conditions at all TAF sites next 24
hours. /EK

.SYNOPSIS...Lingering showers will depart Northern Idaho this
evening. A cool and mostly clear night is expected across the
region coupled with decreasing winds. A dry warming trend is
expected through early next week.

&&

.DISCUSSION...
Tonight through Sunday night: The vigorous low pressure system
responsible for yesterday`s severe weather will continue to lift
northeast into the Canadian Plains. Instability and moisture
associated with this feature will lift through far NE WA and Nrn
ID this evening and depart overnight with a decreasing trend in
showers. Zonal flow will be in place on Friday then the jet stream
will become a bit more amplified as a trof of low pressure deepens
over the Gulf of AK. This will result in rising heights across the
Northern Rockies and deliver a dry...warming trend for the Inland
NW. Temperatures will start off below average or generally in the
70`s to lower 80`s Friday...increase to the 80`s Saturday...then
continue warming into the 90`s to close out the weekend.  /sb

Monday through Thursday: Models are in good agreement of the upper
level ridge building back over the Western US next week. This will
provide just a few degrees of warming each day, so that by next
Thur all valley locations will see mid 90s to lower 100s. Both the
GFS and ECMWF show virtually no moisture over the area. Add to
that no significant weather disturbance moving though...next week
will be rather boring; just hot and dry. Skies will be mostly
clear. Winds will be fairly light. Some late afternoon/early
evening Cascade gap winds are likely. /Nisbet

.SYNOPSIS...Lingering showers will continue for the northern
mountains today as a cold front exits the region. Cool and breezy
weather is expected today behind the cold front. 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...
Small update today to reduce pops in the Okanogan Valley and East
Slopes. The main precipitation threat for the remainder of today
will be along and ahead of a meridional band of showers currently
extending from Republic to Grand Coulee tied to a theta-e axis
wrapping around the backside of yesterday`s low pressure system.
Precipitation with this activity will generally be light with
rainfall amounts ranging between a trace to 0.01" in the Basin to
up to 0.06" in the northern mountains. The main story for today
will be the cooler temperatures and windy conditions. We are
already seeing breezy conditions region-wide with gusts 25-35 mph
and this will be in place through early evening. Clearing skies
and lighter winds overnight will deliver a cool night for the
Inland NW with sheltered northern valleys likely to dip into the
40`s while the Basin cools into the 50`s.

&&

.AVIATION...
18Z TAFS: An exiting low pressure system will bring some
cloudiness...more wdsprd across the north...and a threat of a
few light showers across NE WA and Nrn ID through 00z. Winds will
be the main aviation impact. Local wind gusts between 25 to 35 mph
will be possible this afternoon and early evening, focused
especially from 18-02Z. /sb

.SYNOPSIS...Lingering showers and a few minor thunderstorms will
continue for the northern mountains today as a cold front exits
the region. Cool and breezy weather is expected today behind the
cold front. 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...
Today through Friday: The Inland Northwest will find waning
shower chances, breezy conditions and cool temperatures. Over the
next 24-hours an upper low centered over north Washington tracks
toward the Canadian Prairies. The low, and a weakening deformation
axis wrapped around it, will provide continued shower chances
across the Cascades and northern mountains. Some showers may also
impact the Highway 2 and I-90 corridor, from the Waterville
Plateau into the central Panhandle. However as the low continues
to shift northeast and drier air and large-scale subsidence moves
in behind it, shower chances will begin retreat toward the Cascade
crest and shift further into the northeast Washington and northern
Panhandle mountains and dissipate this afternoon and evening. With
a lack of significant instability, the threat of thunder will be
minimal.

A modest pressure gradient and good mixing this afternoon with
the strong subsidence will produce breezy conditions through the
day. Gusts between 25 and 35 mph will be common from Chelan county
east through the Spokane area and Palouse. Winds are expected to
abate through the evening, particularly past 8 pm or so. As for
temperatures, readings will be below normal. Regional 850mb
temperatures under the low range from the upper single digits in
the Cascades to the lower teens toward the Panhandle. This
supports high temperatures some 10-15 degree below average. This
means many areas, outside of the deeper Columbia Basin and L-C
Valley, will only see highs in the upper 60s to mid-70s.

Tonight and Friday the region transitions to a more zonal flow. A
secondary mid-level disturbance slips onshore overnight into
Friday morning, but the brunt of the lift remains north of the
Canadian border. So look for dry weather and a few clouds. Winds
will be pick up again in the afternoon as the gradients tighten
again slightly with the northern wave and increased mixing, but
speeds will be relatively lower. A few gusts between 15 to 20 mph
will be possible in the afternoon. Temperatures will remain on the
cool side of average, but overall values look about 5 degrees
milder as compared to Thursday. /J. Cote`

Friday night through Wednesday...Latest medium range GFS and ECMWF
guidance is in remarkably good agreement in depicting a return to
torrid dog-day summer conditions through the extended period. A
strong 4 corners upper high will build into the region...becoming
progressively stronger each day through Monday before stabilizing.
this will allow the establishment of a strong low level thermal
trough over the Columbia Basin which will promote hot days and
sultry overnights through Wednesday. On or about Monday a shot of
monsoonal moisture may side-swipe the southeastern zones and Idaho
Panhandle with a small threat of thunderstorms...but this is a low
confidence forecast at this point. Confidence is high that the
forecast area will return to a dry and sunny above normal/hot
stretch of summer weather this weekend through the middle of next
week. /Fugazzi


&&

.AVIATION...
12Z TAFS: An exiting upper low will bring some cloudiness and a
threat of a few showers and, more notably, breezy conditions.
Local wind gusts between 25 to 35 mph will be possible this
afternoon and early evening, focused especially from 18-02Z. The
shower threat will be best across the Cascade crest and northern
mountains, away from TAF sites. However the isolated shower
cannot be ruled out this morning. Also with recent precipitation
and the low level southwest flow brief MVFR cigs are possible this
morning across the GEG/SFF/COE/PUW area. However confidence is
low and VFR conditions are depicted in TAFs. /J. Cote`

showers across the region with isolated thunderstorms possible
across the mountains of northern WA and north Idaho tonight and
into Thursday. Gusty winds will diminish somewhat overnight. If
winds become light, MVFR cigs are possible at KGEG/KSFF/KCOE
generally between 10z-14Z. Lower confidence in lowering cigs for
KPUW/KEAT. Expect dry conditions and winds 12 kts or less after

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SPOKANE WA
611 PM PDT WED JUL 23 2014

SYNOPSIS... A STRONG STORM SYSTEM AND ASSOCIATED COLD FRONT WILL
CONINTUE TO MOVE THROUGH THE REGION TONIGHT, BRINGING SEVERE
THUNDERSTORMS PRODUCING LARGE HAIL, STRONG WIND, FREQUENT
LIGHTNING WITH POCKETS OF HEAVY RAIN MAINLY NEAR THE CANADIAN
BORDER THIS EVENING. COOL AND WINDY WEATHER IS EXPECTED FOR
LATER TONIGHT INTO THURSDAY WITH LESS CHANCES OF THUNDERSTORMS
CONFINED TO THE NORTHERN MOUNTAINS. 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...

UPDATED FOR CANCELLATION OF FLASH FLOOD WATCH AND REDUCING THE
AREA OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WARNINGS.

TONIGHT...

..SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS CONTINUE BE A THREAT THROUGH THIS
EVENING NEAR THE CANADIAN BORDER...

RADAR AND SATELLITE CONTINUE TO SHOW THE PROGRESSION OF THE COLD
FRONT ACROSS THE REGIONSAND STRONG THUNDERSTORMS PROGRESSING
TOWARD THE CANADIAN BORDER THESE STORMS WILL CONTINUE TO PROGRESS
SWIFTLY NORTH AND EAST THROUGH THIS EVENING WITH A POTENTIALLY
DAMAGING AND DEADLY COMBINATION OF FREQUENT LIGHTNING, POSSIBLE
GOLF BALL SIZED HAIL, STRONG WIND GUSTS TO 60 MPH AND VERY HEAVY
RAIN CAUSING LOCALIZED FLASH FLOODING.

IT IS HIGHLY URGED TO TAKE SHELTER THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING IN
A STURDY BUILDING UNTIL THE THE THREAT OF THESE THUNDERSTORMS
PASS. THE OVERALL THREAT OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS WILL PASS BY
LATE EVENING BUT ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS WILL PERSIST OVERNIGHT
NEAR THE CANADIAN BORDER UNTIL AROUND MIDNIGHT.

BEHIND THE COLD FRONT AND THUNDERSTORMS, WIND WILL CONTINUE TO BE
STRONG WITH 35 MPH GUSTS LASTING INTO THE LATE EVENING HOURS.

PLEASE CONTINUE TO CHECK FREQUENTLY ON THE EVOLUTION OF THIS
DANGEROUS SITUATION FROM LOCAL RADIO AND TELEVISION NEWS SOURCES
AND THE NWS SPOKANE WEB SITE AT HTTP://WEATHER.GOV/SPOKANE .

THURSDAY THROUGH SATURDAY...
SHOWERS WILL STILL LINGER OVER THE MOUNTAINS ESPECIALLY NORTH AND
EAST IN THE IDAHO PANHANDLE. TEMPERATURES WILL BE COOLER THURSDAY
WILL A COOL NIGHT THURSDAY NIGHT. GOING INTO FRIDAY AND SATURDAY
MOUNTAIN SHOWERS WILL BE GREATLY DIMINISHED AND A WARMING TREND
WILL BEGIN AS HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS INTO THE REGION. TC

SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY: THE HEAT RETURNS TO THE INLAND
NORTHWEST. HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS OVER THE AREA FOR AN EXTENDED
PERIOD OF HOT WEATHER. BUT THERE ARE SOME FLIES IN THE OINTMENT.
BOTH THE ECMWF AND GFS SHOW A LITTLE RIPPLE IN THE FLOW COMING UP
FROM THE SOUTHWEST SOMETIME SUNDAY OR MONDAY. THIS BRINGS MOISTURE
INTO THE AREA WHICH COULD BRING A THREAT OF HIGH-BASED (I.E.
MOSTLY DRY) THUNDERSTORMS. THE BEST CHANCE WOULD BE OVER SOUTHEAST
WASHINGTON AND THE SOUTHERN PANHANDLE FOR MONDAY. AFTER THAT WAVE,
CONVECTION SHOULD MAINLY BE CONFINED TO THE SOUTH OF OUR AREA, BUT
THAT COULD CHANGE WITH THE NEXT FORECASTS.

THE OTHER AFFECT OF THIS MOISTURE IS THAT IT WILL PLAY HAVOC WITH
THE TEMPERATURES FOR MONDAY. CLOUDS OVERNIGHT COULD RESULT IN RATHER
BALMY LOW TEMPERATURES. CLOUDS DURING THE DAY COULD SHAVE A FEW
DEGREES OFF THE HIGH TEMPERATURES. AT THIS POINT I COOLED
TEMPERATURES A BIT FOR MONDAY AFTERNOON.  RJ

&&

AVIATION...
00Z TAFS: COLD FRONT WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE THROUGH THE AREA INTO
THROUGH 06Z BRINGING SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS WITH WIND GUSTS TO 60
MPH, LARGE HAIL AND HEAVY RAIN LEADING TO TEMPORARY REDUCTIONS
OF CIGS TO NEAR MVFR. COLD AIR FOLLOWING THE COLD FRONT WILL
CONTINUE GUSTY WINDS TO 35 MPH WITH REDUCTION IN STORM ACTIVITY FROM
SOUTHERN WASHINGTON TO NORTHERN WASHINGTON AND NORTH IDAHO AFTER 03Z.
EXPECT LINGERING SHOWERS AND POSSIBLY AN ISOLATED THUNDERSTORM OVER
THE NORTHERN MOUNTAINS FOR THURSDAY BUT ALL TAF SITES WILL
ESSENTIALLY BE EXPERIENCING A DRYING PERIOD AND BREEZY WINDS GUSTING
TO 30 MPH INTO 00Z FRIDAY. TC

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SPOKANE WA
611 PM PDT WED JUL 23 2014

SYNOPSIS... A STRONG STORM SYSTEM AND ASSOCIATED COLD FRONT WILL
CONINTUE TO MOVE THROUGH THE REGION TONIGHT, BRINGING SEVERE
THUNDERSTORMS PRODUCING LARGE HAIL, STRONG WIND, FREQUENT
LIGHTNING WITH POCKETS OF HEAVY RAIN MAINLY NEAR THE CANADIAN
BORDER THIS EVENING. COOL AND WINDY WEATHER IS EXPECTED FOR
LATER TONIGHT INTO THURSDAY WITH LESS CHANCES OF THUNDERSTORMS
CONFINED TO THE NORTHERN MOUNTAINS. 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...

UPDATED FOR CANCELLATION OF FLASH FLOOD WATCH AND REDUCING THE
AREA OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WARNINGS.

TONIGHT...

..SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS CONTINUE BE A THREAT THROUGH THIS
EVENING NEAR THE CANADIAN BORDER...

RADAR AND SATELLITE CONTINUE TO SHOW THE PROGRESSION OF THE COLD
FRONT ACROSS THE REGIONSAND STRONG THUNDERSTORMS PROGRESSING
TOWARD THE CANADIAN BORDER THESE STORMS WILL CONTINUE TO PROGRESS
SWIFTLY NORTH AND EAST THROUGH THIS EVENING WITH A POTENTIALLY
DAMAGING AND DEADLY COMBINATION OF FREQUENT LIGHTNING, POSSIBLE
GOLF BALL SIZED HAIL, STRONG WIND GUSTS TO 60 MPH AND VERY HEAVY
RAIN CAUSING LOCALIZED FLASH FLOODING.

IT IS HIGHLY URGED TO TAKE SHELTER THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING IN
A STURDY BUILDING UNTIL THE THE THREAT OF THESE THUNDERSTORMS
PASS. THE OVERALL THREAT OF SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS WILL PASS BY
LATE EVENING BUT ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS WILL PERSIST OVERNIGHT
NEAR THE CANADIAN BORDER UNTIL AROUND MIDNIGHT.

BEHIND THE COLD FRONT AND THUNDERSTORMS, WIND WILL CONTINUE TO BE
STRONG WITH 35 MPH GUSTS LASTING INTO THE LATE EVENING HOURS.

PLEASE CONTINUE TO CHECK FREQUENTLY ON THE EVOLUTION OF THIS
DANGEROUS SITUATION FROM LOCAL RADIO AND TELEVISION NEWS SOURCES
AND THE NWS SPOKANE WEB SITE AT HTTP://WEATHER.GOV/SPOKANE .

THURSDAY THROUGH SATURDAY...
SHOWERS WILL STILL LINGER OVER THE MOUNTAINS ESPECIALLY NORTH AND
EAST IN THE IDAHO PANHANDLE. TEMPERATURES WILL BE COOLER THURSDAY
WILL A COOL NIGHT THURSDAY NIGHT. GOING INTO FRIDAY AND SATURDAY
MOUNTAIN SHOWERS WILL BE GREATLY DIMINISHED AND A WARMING TREND
WILL BEGIN AS HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS INTO THE REGION. TC

SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY: THE HEAT RETURNS TO THE INLAND
NORTHWEST. HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS OVER THE AREA FOR AN EXTENDED
PERIOD OF HOT WEATHER. BUT THERE ARE SOME FLIES IN THE OINTMENT.
BOTH THE ECMWF AND GFS SHOW A LITTLE RIPPLE IN THE FLOW COMING UP
FROM THE SOUTHWEST SOMETIME SUNDAY OR MONDAY. THIS BRINGS MOISTURE
INTO THE AREA WHICH COULD BRING A THREAT OF HIGH-BASED (I.E.
MOSTLY DRY) THUNDERSTORMS. THE BEST CHANCE WOULD BE OVER SOUTHEAST
WASHINGTON AND THE SOUTHERN PANHANDLE FOR MONDAY. AFTER THAT WAVE,
CONVECTION SHOULD MAINLY BE CONFINED TO THE SOUTH OF OUR AREA, BUT
THAT COULD CHANGE WITH THE NEXT FORECASTS.

THE OTHER AFFECT OF THIS MOISTURE IS THAT IT WILL PLAY HAVOC WITH
THE TEMPERATURES FOR MONDAY. CLOUDS OVERNIGHT COULD RESULT IN RATHER
BALMY LOW TEMPERATURES. CLOUDS DURING THE DAY COULD SHAVE A FEW
DEGREES OFF THE HIGH TEMPERATURES. AT THIS POINT I COOLED
TEMPERATURES A BIT FOR MONDAY AFTERNOON.  RJ

&&

AVIATION...
00Z TAFS: COLD FRONT WILL CONTINUE TO MOVE THROUGH THE AREA INTO
THROUGH 06Z BRINGING SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS WITH WIND GUSTS TO 60
MPH, LARGE HAIL AND HEAVY RAIN LEADING TO TEMPORARY REDUCTIONS
OF CIGS TO NEAR MVFR. COLD AIR FOLLOWING THE COLD FRONT WILL
CONTINUE GUSTY WINDS TO 35 MPH WITH REDUCTION IN STORM ACTIVITY FROM
SOUTHERN WASHINGTON TO NORTHERN WASHINGTON AND NORTH IDAHO AFTER 03Z.
EXPECT LINGERING SHOWERS AND POSSIBLY AN ISOLATED THUNDERSTORM OVER
THE NORTHERN MOUNTAINS FOR THURSDAY BUT ALL TAF SITES WILL
ESSENTIALLY BE EXPERIENCING A DRYING PERIOD AND BREEZY WINDS GUSTING
TO 30 MPH INTO 00Z FRIDAY. TC

FIRES. FLASH FLOOD WARNINGS HAD BEEN ISSUED IN THIS REGION SINCE
EARLY AFTERNOON. ALONG WITH THE HEAVY RAIN THERE HAD ALSO BEEN
REPORTS OF HAIL AS LARGE AS A QUARTER.

RADAR AND SATELLITE CONTINUE TO SHOW THE PROGRESSION OF THE COLD
FRONT AND STRONG THUNDERSTORMS PROGRESSING THROUGH THE CASCADES,
OKANOGAN REGION AND SOUTHERN WASHINGTON AS OF 2 PM. THESE STORMS
WILL CONTINUE TO PROGRESS SWIFTLY NORTH AND EAST THROUGH THIS
EVENING WITH A POTENTIALLY DAMAGING AND DEADLY COMBINATION OF
FREQUENT LIGHTNING, POSSIBLE GOLF BALL SIZED HAIL, STRONG WIND
GUSTS TO 60 MPH AND VERY HEAVY RAIN CAUSING LOCALIZED FLASH
FLOODING.

OVERALL ESTIMATES OF STORMS REACHING THE MAJOR METRO AREAS OF
SPOKANE AND COEUR D`ALENE AS EARLY AS 3 PM AND PROGRESSING INTO
THE NORTHEAST MOUNTAINS OF WASHINGTON AND IDAHO PANHANDLE SHORTLY
THEREAFTER. IT IS HIGHLY URGED TO TAKE SHELTER THIS AFTERNOON AND
EVENING IN A STURDY BUILD UNTIL THE THE THREAT OF THESE
THUNDERSTORMS PASS. THE OVERALL THREAT OF WIDESPREAD SEVERE
THUNDERSTORMS SHOULD PASS BY LATE EVENING BUT THUNDERSTORMS WILL
PERSIST OVERNIGHT NEAR THE CANADIAN BORDER UNTIL AROUND MIDNIGHT.

BEHIND THE COLD FRONT AND THUNDERSTORMS, WIND WILL CONTINUE TO BE
STRONG WITH 35 MPH GUSTS LASTING INTO THE LATE EVENING HOURS.

PLEASE CONTINUE TO CHECK FREQUENTLY ON THE EVOLUTION OF THIS
DANGEROUS SITUATION FROM LOCAL RADIO AND TELEVISION NEWS SOURCES
AND THE NWS SPOKANE WEB SITE AT HTTP://WEATHER.GOV/SPOKANE.

THURSDAY THROUGH SATURDAY...
SHOWERS WILL STILL LINGER OVER THE MOUNTAINS ESPECIALLY NORTH AND
EAST IN THE IDAHO PANHANDLE. TEMPERATURES WILL BE COOLER THURSDAY
WILL A COOL NIGHT THURSDAY NIGHT. GOING INTO FRIDAY AND SATURDAY
MOUNTAIN SHOWERS WILL BE GREATLY DIMINISHED AND A WARMING TREND
WILL BEGIN AS HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS INTO THE REGION. TC

SUNDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY: THE HEAT RETURNS TO THE INLAND
NORTHWEST. HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS OVER THE AREA FOR AN EXTENDED
PERIOD OF HOT WEATHER. BUT THERE ARE SOME FLIES IN THE OINTMENT.
BOTH THE ECMWF AND GFS SHOW A LITTLE RIPPLE IN THE FLOW COMING UP
FROM THE SOUTHWEST SOMETIME SUNDAY OR MONDAY. THIS BRINGS MOISTURE
INTO THE AREA WHICH COULD BRING A THREAT OF HIGH-BASED (I.E.
MOSTLY DRY) THUNDERSTORMS. THE BEST CHANCE WOULD BE OVER SOUTHEAST
WASHINGTON AND THE SOUTHERN PANHANDLE FOR MONDAY. AFTER THAT WAVE,
CONVECTION SHOULD MAINLY BE CONFINED TO THE SOUTH OF OUR AREA, BUT
THAT COULD CHANGE WITH THE NEXT FORECASTS.

THE OTHER AFFECT OF THIS MOISTURE IS THAT IT WILL PLAY HAVOC WITH
THE TEMPERATURES FOR MONDAY. CLOUDS OVERNIGHT COULD RESULT IN RATHER
BALMY LOW TEMPERATURES. CLOUDS DURING THE DAY COULD SHAVE A FEW
DEGREES OFF THE HIGH TEMPERATURES. AT THIS POINT I COOLED
TEMPERATURES A BIT FOR MONDAY AFTERNOON.  RJ

1056 AM PDT WED JUL 23 2014

.SYNOPSIS...
A strong storm system will move through the region today, 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...
Quick update for today: Main message is the threat for strong to
severe storms across the eastern third of WA and Nrn ID while
heavy rains brings a risk for flash flooding/mudslides over burn
scars in the Cascades. SPC has spread the slight risk into much of
eastern WA and Nrn ID and a watch is not out of the question.
Areas of Ern WA and Nrn ID are experiencing sunny skies at this
hour which is going to allow the environment to reach potential
instability parameters via the model guidance. A much tougher call
for central WA given the pronounced cloudiness. Thunder is still
likely but whether instability can incr enough to support severe
storms is not as promising.

Meanwhile, embedded vort maximums tracking ahead of the main front
is enhancing convection along and mainly west of the Cascade
Crest with very impressive rates of upwards of 0.50"/hour under
the strongest cores. One wave passing through southern Chelan
County at this hour and peeling off to the N/NW. Activity with
this cluster is not as intense as observed with cores upstream
with 1 hour amounts generally in the 0.05-0.15" range, but
isolated lightning strikes have been observed and the potential
for strengthening is there given the instability noted on forecast
soundings and how intense some of the convection was in Seattle`s
area this morning. Things are likely to shift east over the
course of the next 1-3 hours as the upper-low comes east and
spreads the training moisture and rain into the East Slopes. Flash
flood watches in effect. /sb

.SYNOPSIS...
A strong storm system will move through the region today, 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...
Today and tonight: A strong storm system comes into the region,
with a good chance of showers and thunderstorms. Low pressure is
centered off the Washington coast this morning and is forecast to
reach NE WA/SE BC by Thursday morning. Ahead of it is a moist
southwest flow, with PWATs around 1 inch (or about 180% of normal)
and surface dew points in the 50s to low 60s. This morning showers
and thunderstorms, associated with a mid-level disturbance and
slug of mid-level instability that came in from Oregon, will
continue to lift northward and out into BC and MT. This will leave
some lull in the bigger precipitation threat from around 15-20Z
for a good chunk of the region. However other showers are expected
to continue near the Cascades with the offshore low approaching
and the next shortwave pivoting around it.

Then this afternoon and evening the next round of showers and
thunderstorms develops. As temperatures warm into the 70s and
80s the convective instability blossoms: SBCAPE values from 18
and 00Z rise to between 200 and 1000 J/kg. The best of it centered
along and north and east of a line from Mazama to Othello. In that
region models paint the core of it across the northeast mountains
south into the Palouse and across the north and central Panhandle.
So going into the afternoon a theta-e ridge slips in from the
south, while the cold front and supporting upper low push into
the Cascades and east toward the Idaho Panhandle by this evening.
These latter several features would be enough to bring a good
threat of showers and thunderstorms. But the coupling of one jet
streak tracking up from the Great Basin into central Idaho and
second jet streak rounding the upper low, with a fair amount of
diffluence over eastern Washington and north Idaho, makes me even
more confident there is enough lift out there to bring showers
and thunderstorms.

Models still paint some of the higher precipitation amounts along
the cold front and upper low over the Cascades, supporting the
potential for flooding. Hence the flash flood watch remains in
place, especially with concerns in the burn scar areas from this
and the past few summers. The threat of strong to locally severe
thunderstorms also remains over much of eastern WA and north ID
too given the forces of lift, moisture and instability coming
together. With 0-6km bulk shear between 30 to 50kts, storms will
have the potential to be more organized. Looking at forecast
soundings, the CAPE appears to be relatively thin and tall, with
a relatively dry sub-cloud layer. This lends thinking that the
main threat from storms will be hail and gusty winds.

Going into the late evening and overnight the cold front is
pushed east of the region, with the upper low near the WA/BC
border. Some elevated instability lingers across the Canadian
border, petering out southwest toward the Waterville Plateau. Some
weak instability lingers near the Clearwaters too. Thus the
primary shower chances will continue near the Cascade crest,
northern mountains and across Idaho, especially through the early
overnight. The remainder of the area should see things drying out,
with some clearing from the southwest.

The other issue will be winds. Outside of those generated with
thunderstorms, synoptic winds are expected to pick up from the
west-southwest this afternoon and tonight along and behind the
front. By mid to later afternoon winds in the 10 to 20 mph range
will be possible, especially over the east Chelan county, across
the Basin into the Spokane/C`dA area, Palouse and L-C Valley.
Gusts near 30 mph or so will also be possible. Speeds abate some
overnight, but still remain relatively breezy for the time of day.
/J. Cote`

Thursday through Sunday...Model guidance indicates the cold pool
aloft associated with the anomalous upper low will be centered
over the northern reaches of the forecast area as Thursday dawns.
This should promote continued showers...but given the time of day
before appreciable surface based instability can be generated
these lingering showers will be primarily left over rain showers
from the previous evening`s convective activity with only a few
isolated thunderstorms centered mainly over the mountainous
terrain north of the Columbia Basin. Thursday overall will be a
day of general improvement as the offending upper low begins to
move out of the region to the northeast during the afternoon. The
cooler maritime air mass in the wake of the upper low will
manifest itself as much cooler than normal temperatures on
Thursday with generally breezy conditions with gusts to near 30
mph over the exposed terrain of the basin and Cascade gaps.

Friday through Sunday will feature a drying and warming trend as a
mid-summer 4 corners upper level ridge builds into the region. A
general warming trend to back above normal will become noticeable
starting Friday and continuing through the weekend with lighter
winds and a dry and stable air mass precluding any precipitation.
/Fugazzi

Monday through Wednesday: A ridging pattern is expected to be over
the region for this period. This will lead to a dry and warming
trend in the temperatures. The models are in good agreement for
this period with the exception of the GFS showing a shortwave on
Monday morning. The lack of moisture kept the chance of showers
out the forecast. Temperatures are expected to be in the 90s for
the region during this period. /JDC

&&

.AVIATION...
12Z TAFS: Low pressure off the coast this Wednesday morning will
move inland over the next 24 hours. Isolated showers will be
possible around the TAF sites this morning, but a better threat
of showers and thunderstorms develops this afternoon, first around
EAT near 18-21Z and elsewhere starting between 20-23Z, before the
threat begins to wane after 00Z-06Z from west to east. Some of the
thunderstorms may be strong and isolated severe thunderstorms are
not out of the question. Predominantly VFR conditions are forecast.
Yet heavier storms may produce brief MVFR/IFR cigs/vis, with the
potential for heavy downpours, gusty winds and hail. Aside from
possible winds with thunderstorms, general winds will increase
for this afternoon and evening with sustained speeds between
10-20kts and gusts up to 30kts, before decreasing after 03-06Z.

Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Spokane WA
210 AM PDT WED JUL 23 2014

.SYNOPSIS...
A strong storm system will move through the region today, 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...
Today and tonight: A strong storm system comes into the region,
with a good chance of showers and thunderstorms. Low pressure is
centered off the Washington coast this morning and is forecast to
reach NE WA/SE BC by Thursday morning. Ahead of it is a moist
southwest flow, with PWATs around 1 inch (or about 180% of normal)
and surface dew points in the 50s to low 60s. This morning showers
and thunderstorms, associated with a mid-level disturbance and
slug of mid-level instability that came in from Oregon, will
continue to lift northward and out into BC and MT. This will leave
some lull in the bigger precipitation threat from around 15-20Z
for a good chunk of the region. However other showers are expected
to continue near the Cascades with the offshore low approaching
and the next shortwave pivoting around it.

Then this afternoon and evening the next round of showers and
thunderstorms develops. As temperatures warm into the 70s and
80s the convective instability blossoms: SBCAPE values from 18
and 00Z rise to between 200 and 1000 J/kg. The best of it centered
along and north and east of a line from Mazama to Othello. In that
region models paint the core of it across the northeast mountains
south into the Palouse and across the north and central Panhandle.
So going into the afternoon a theta-e ridge slips in from the
south, while the cold front and supporting upper low push into
the Cascades and east toward the Idaho Panhandle by this evening.
These latter several features would be enough to bring a good
threat of showers and thunderstorms. But the coupling of one jet
streak tracking up from the Great Basin into central Idaho and
second jet streak rounding the upper low, with a fair amount of
diffluence over eastern Washington and north Idaho, makes me even
more confident there is enough lift out there to bring showers
and thunderstorms.

Models still paint some of the higher precipitation amounts along
the cold front and upper low over the Cascades, supporting the
potential for flooding. Hence the flash flood watch remains in
place, especially with concerns in the burn scar areas from this
and the past few summers. The threat of strong to locally severe
thunderstorms also remains over much of eastern WA and north ID
too given the forces of lift, moisture and instability coming
together. With 0-6km bulk shear between 30 to 50kts, storms will
have the potential to be more organized. Looking at forecast
soundings, the CAPE appears to be relatively thin and tall, with
a relatively dry sub-cloud layer. This lends thinking that the
main threat from storms will be hail and gusty winds.

Going into the late evening and overnight the cold front is
pushed east of the region, with the upper low near the WA/BC
border. Some elevated instability lingers across the Canadian
border, petering out southwest toward the Waterville Plateau. Some
weak instability lingers near the Clearwaters too. Thus the
primary shower chances will continue near the Cascade crest,
northern mountains and across Idaho, especially through the early
overnight. The remainder of the area should see things drying out,
with some clearing from the southwest.

The other issue will be winds. Outside of those generated with
thunderstorms, synoptic winds are expected to pick up from the
west-southwest this afternoon and tonight along and behind the
front. By mid to later afternoon winds in the 10 to 20 mph range
will be possible, especially over the east Chelan county, across
the Basin into the Spokane/C`dA area, Palouse and L-C Valley.
Gusts near 30 mph or so will also be possible. Speeds abate some
overnight, but still remain relatively breezy for the time of day.
/J. Cote`

Thursday through Sunday...Model guidance indicates the cold pool
aloft associated with the anomalous upper low will be centered
over the northern reaches of the forecast area as Thursday dawns.
This should promote continued showers...but given the time of day
before appreciable surface based instability can be generated
these lingering showers will be primarily left over rain showers
from the previous evening`s convective activity with only a few
isolated thunderstorms centered mainly over the mountainous
terrain north of the Columbia Basin. Thursday overall will be a
day of general improvement as the offending upper low begins to
move out of the region to the northeast during the afternoon. The
cooler maritime air mass in the wake of the upper low will
manifest itself as much cooler than normal temperatures on
Thursday with generally breezy conditions with gusts to near 30
mph over the exposed terrain of the basin and Cascade gaps.

Friday through Sunday will feature a drying and warming trend as a
mid-summer 4 corners upper level ridge builds into the region. A
general warming trend to back above normal will become noticeable
starting Friday and continuing through the weekend with lighter
winds and a dry and stable air mass precluding any precipitation.
/Fugazzi

Monday through Wednesday: A ridging pattern is expected to be over
the region for this period. This will lead to a dry and warming
trend in the temperatures. The models are in good agreement for
this period with the exception of the GFS showing a shortwave on
Monday morning. The lack of moisture kept the chance of showers
out the forecast. Temperatures are expected to be in the 90s for
the region during this period. /JDC

&&

.AVIATION...
06Z TAFS: A low pressure system circulating off of southeast BC
will continue to push moisture across the Inland Northwest with
showers and thunderstorms affecting all TAF sites. The strongest
thunderstorms are expected to develop over northeast OR and track
into southeast WA and into the central portions of the ID
panhandle. Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms will
continue overnight. Confidence is highest that they will affect
KEAT/KLWS/KPUW/KCOE. Lower confidence for KMWH/KGEG/KSFF. -TSRA
will be more widespread Wednesday afternoon and evening with
thunderstorms capable of producing heavy rain, small hail and
gusty outflow winds. /EK

850 PM PDT TUE 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...
Minor update to adjust PoPs across the southeast zones and the
lower basin. Regional radar mosaic shows a persistent band of
showers and thunderstorms tracking northeast from the NE Blue
Mts, across the Idaho Palouse and into western Shoshone County.
There are also a few cells popping up over the lower basin with
quite a bit of convection to the south that will track north over
the next few hours. Cells are generally weakening as they move
north into the forecast area. So far only light to moderate
showers over the Cascade fires. There may be some stronger cells
tracking over the fires later tonight or they may track just
barely to the east of the fires. /Kelch

&&

.AVIATION...
00Z TAFS: A low pressure system circulating off of southeast BC
will continue to push moisture across the Inland Northwest with
showers and thunderstorms affecting all TAF sites. The strongest
thunderstorms are expected to develop over northeast OR and track
into southeast WA and into the central portions of the ID
panhandle. Gusty outflow winds and small hail will be possible
with these thunderstorms through the evening. Scattered showers
and isolated thunderstorms will continue overnight but confidence
is low that they will affect any particular TAF site. -TSRA will
be more widespread Wednesday afternoon with thunderstorms capable
of producing heavy rain, small hail and gusty outflow winds. /EK

434 PM PDT TUE 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 WA 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 WA 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
BC coast and the AK 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

Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Spokane WA
236 PM PDT TUE 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 WA 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 WA 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
BC coast and the AK 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 BC
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 WA and into the central
portions of the ID panhandle. Gusty outflow winds and small hail
will be possible with these thunderstorms through the evening.

.SYNOPSIS...
A strong storm system will approach the region today and pass
through on Wednesday. The threat for thunderstorms will increase
across the southeast today then spread region-wide tonight and on
Wednesday. Some storms could be strong and wet bringing the
potential for strong winds, hail, and heavy rainfall. Temperatures
will rebound by the weekend and be accompanied by dry conditions.


&&

.DISCUSSION...
Main changes to forecast through this afternoon was to increase
precip chances and QPF in the ID Panhandle and in the Cascades. A
batch of showers is moving through the region this morning. Much
of the steadier rainfall has occurred over the ID Panhandle into
extreme portions of eastern WA. We are also seeing some showers
developing across the Cascade Mtns. These showers have generally
been light across these areas with less than 0.05 inches so far.
Showers are expected to continue in the Cascade Mtns and across
the northern mtns of WA and ID through at least the early afternoon
hours. We will then see a little bit of a break around mid
afternoon with mainly some isolated to scattered shower activity
possible.

A slight chance of thunderstorms is possible during the afternoon
for the eastern half of the forecast area; however, the best
chances for thunderstorms will be this evening into tonight as a
wave currently MOVING into California this morning moves up
through the Inland Northwest. Convection is expected to blossom
over OR this afternoon and then begin to track into WA this
evening. Best chances for thunderstorms will be across southeast
WA into the Central Idaho Panhandle. Some of these thunderstorms
may become strong this EVENING with gusty outflow winds and small
hail possible. /SVH

.DISCUSSION...

Today and tonight...Longwave pattern change underway with longwave
ridge pushed away to the east as longwave trof off the coast moves
further east and exerts more influence over the Pacific Northwest.
The result is a more progressive and active southwest to northeast
flow between the offshore trof and the intermountain west ridge
which is more favorable for allowing showers and thunderstorms to
form in Oregon and move north and northeast into Eastern
Washington and Northern Idaho today and tonight. With this in mind
sky grids have considerable cloud cover to account for the
expected convection which also supports forecast max temps on the
cool side of normal and overnight lows on the warm side of normal.
Precipitation amounts are expected to be light due to both the
typically spotty nature of convection and that the lower levels of
the atmosphere remain quite dry as there has not been recent
widespread rainfall for quite a number of days now. /Pelatti

Wednesday through Friday...Models continue to be in good
agreement overall in depicting the arrival and passage through the
forecast area of an anomalously strong (for this time of year)
upper low pressure Wednesday and Wednesday night. The latest GFS
and EC agree well with each other...while the NAM is in the
ballpark with the other guidance with a slightly more northerly
track as it ejects inland. Overall...ramifications of this
evolution should not create significant differences in sensible
weather for the region as this system arrives and passes.

Two regimes appear to impact the forecast area during this time
frame. The first will be over the Cascades East Slopes and perhaps
the deep basin/Okanogan Valley tucked against the Cascades where
the heavy moisture ahead of the incoming low will focus starting
Tuesday night and maximizing on Wednesday. This region will
probably wind up the wettest area as a result of strong
differential vorticity dynamics and jet divergence in the
immediate vicinity of the upper low center...with instability
generated by the inter-trough cold pool aloft. Showers will be
frequent over this area...and perhaps constant near the
crest...interspersed with occasional thunderstorms which have the
potential to lay down some heavy rain swaths under their cores.
This will benefit the fire fighting efforts in these areas with
much needed rain but may also prove to be a double edged sword
with the very real possibility of flash flooding and debris flows
on burn scars if any particular spot is run over by multiple storm
cores. A general blend of all the available model QPF guidance
suggests storm total rain fall approaching or exceeding 1 inch
near the crest and tapering down to a couple tenths of an inch in
the Wenatchee-Waterville Plateau-Omak corridor. This estimate does
not account for the potential for heavy storm cores or training
cells which could produce locally higher amounts anywhere in the
area.

The second threat regime will be over the eastern Columbia Basin
and Idaho Panhandle where the cold front associated with the upper
low may promote a late afternoon/early evening line of organized
convection with gusty winds...copious lightning...hail and short
bursts of heavy rain moving from southwest to northeast...with a
breezy and showery regime through the rest of the night. The
potential for this event and the severity of the storms will be
somewhat dependent on how warm it gets during the relatively benign
daytime heating period over the eastern basin. Fewer clouds
allowing more solar heating will aggravate the situation with
higher values of surface based instability when the surface front
chugs through late in the day.

At this time...confidence is high for the wet regime expected over
the Cascades...and moderate for the strong evening squall line
potential over the east.

From Thursday through Friday a drying trend will commence with
lingering showers and isolated thunderstorms over the northeast
Thursday and perhaps over the far north Cascades. Thursday night
the upper low will move out of the region into the Canadian
prairie and a zonal-ish weak ridging regime will begin.
Temperatures Wednesday and Thursday will be heavily dependent on
cloud cover and precipitation areal extent...with the safe bet on
well below average for a change...with a noticeable warming trend
on Friday. /Fugazzi

Friday Night through Wednesday Morning: A gradually building
ridge will continue to dry things out and warm things up into next
week. Saturday will be the most normal day of the far extended
forecast, with zonal flow over the Inland Northwest. Temperatures
will be right about where they should be (80s to low 90s) with
light winds. But Sunday, the ridge begins to nudge northward into
the northern Rockies, with warming 850 mb temperatures each day
over the region. We will be right back into the "hot" category by
Monday and Tuesday (and even a few days after?). Very dry air at
the surface will lead to low RH values during the afternoon. These
conditions will not be good news on the fire weather front. ty

.AVIATION...
12Z TAFS: As a low pressure system moves closer to the region the
low level flow will become more from the south and southwest. This
change will allow for moisture and energy to stream across the
aviation area for the next 24 to 48 hours. Regardless of the light
showers and thunderstorms expected today and some wildfire smoke
lingering in spots VFR conditions are expected to prevail.

At this time...confidence is high for the wet regime expected over
the Cascades...and moderate for the strong evening squall line
potential over the east.

From Thursday through Friday a drying trend will commence with
lingering showers and isolated thunderstorms over the northeast
Thursday and perhaps over the far north Cascades. Thursday night
the upper low will move out of the region into the Canadian
prairie and a zonal-ish weak ridging regime will begin.
Temperatures Wednesday and Thursday will be heavily dependent on
cloud cover and precipitation areal extent...with the safe bet on
well below average for a change...with a noticeable warming trend
on Friday. /Fugazzi

Friday Night through Wednesday Morning: A gradually building
ridge will continue to dry things out and warm things up into next
week. Saturday will be the most normal day of the far extended
forecast, with zonal flow over the Inland Northwest. Temperatures
will be right about where they should be (80s to low 90s) with
light winds. But Sunday, the ridge begins to nudge northward into
the northern Rockies, with warming 850 mb temperatures each day
over the region. We will be right back into the "hot" category by
Monday and Tuesday (and even a few days after?). Very dry air at
the surface will lead to low RH values during the afternoon. These
conditions will not be good news on the fire weather front. ty

.AVIATION...
12Z TAFS: As a low pressure system moves closer to the region the
low level flow will become more from the south and southwest. This
change will allow for moisture and energy to stream across the
aviation area for the next 24 to 48 hours. Regardless of the light
showers and thunderstorms expected today and some wildfire smoke
lingering in spots VFR conditions are expected to prevail.

Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Spokane WA
215 AM PDT TUE JUL 22 2014

.SYNOPSIS...
A strong storm system will approach the region today and pass
through on Wednesday. The threat for thunderstorms will increase
across the southeast today then spread region-wide tonight and on
Wednesday. Some storms could be strong and wet bringing the
potential for strong winds, hail, and heavy rainfall. Temperatures
will rebound by the weekend and be accompanied by dry conditions.

&&

.DISCUSSION...

Today and tonight...Longwave pattern change underway with longwave
ridge pushed away to the east as longwave trof off the coast moves
further east and exerts more influence over the Pacific Northwest.
The result is a more progressive and active southwest to northeast
flow between the offshore trof and the intermountain west ridge
which is more favorable for allowing showers and thunderstorms to
form in Oregon and move north and northeast into Eastern
Washington and Northern Idaho today and tonight. With this in mind
sky grids have considerable cloud cover to account for the
expected convection which also supports forecast max temps on the
cool side of normal and overnight lows on the warm side of normal.
Precipitation amounts are expected to be light due to both the
typically spotty nature of convection and that the lower levels of
the atmosphere remain quite dry as there has not been recent
widespread rainfall for quite a number of days now. /Pelatti

Wednesday through Friday...Models continue to be in good
agreement overall in depicting the arrival and passage through the
forecast area of an anomalously strong (for this time of year)
upper low pressure Wednesday and Wednesday night. The latest GFS
and EC agree well with each other...while the NAM is in the
ballpark with the other guidance with a slightly more northerly
track as it ejects inland. Overall...ramifications of this
evolution should not create significant differences in sensible
weather for the region as this system arrives and passes.

Two regimes appear to impact the forecast area during this time
frame. The first will be over the Cascades East Slopes and perhaps
the deep basin/Okanogan Valley tucked against the Cascades where
the heavy moisture ahead of the incoming low will focus starting
Tuesday night and maximizing on Wednesday. This region will
probably wind up the wettest area as a result of strong
differential vorticity dynamics and jet divergence in the
immediate vicinity of the upper low center...with instability
generated by the inter-trough cold pool aloft. Showers will be
frequent over this area...and perhaps constant near the
crest...interspersed with occasional thunderstorms which have the
potential to lay down some heavy rain swaths under their cores.
This will benefit the fire fighting efforts in these areas with
much needed rain but may also prove to be a double edged sword
with the very real possibility of flash flooding and debris flows
on burn scars if any particular spot is run over by multiple storm
cores. A general blend of all the available model QPF guidance
suggests storm total rain fall approaching or exceeding 1 inch
near the crest and tapering down to a couple tenths of an inch in
the Wenatchee-Waterville Plateau-Omak corridor. This estimate does
not account for the potential for heavy storm cores or training
cells which could produce locally higher amounts anywhere in the
area.

The second threat regime will be over the eastern Columbia Basin
and Idaho Panhandle where the cold front associated with the upper
low may promote a late afternoon/early evening line of organized
convection with gusty winds...copious lightning...hail and short
bursts of heavy rain moving from southwest to northeast...with a
breezy and showery regime through the rest of the night. The
potential for this event and the severity of the storms will be
somewhat dependent on how warm it gets during the relatively benign
daytime heating period over the eastern basin. Fewer clouds
allowing more solar heating will aggravate the situation with
higher values of surface based instability when the surface front
chugs through late in the day.

At this time...confidence is high for the wet regime expected over
the Cascades...and moderate for the strong evening squall line
potential over the east.

From Thursday through Friday a drying trend will commence with
lingering showers and isolated thunderstorms over the northeast
Thursday and perhaps over the far north Cascades. Thursday night
the upper low will move out of the region into the Canadian
prairie and a zonal-ish weak ridging regime will begin.
Temperatures Wednesday and Thursday will be heavily dependent on
cloud cover and precipitation areal extent...with the safe bet on
well below average for a change...with a noticeable warming trend
on Friday. /Fugazzi

.AVIATION...
06Z TAFS: Wildfire smoke should be contained to the north Cascade
valleys tonight. Mid level clouds continue to move in from the
south and thicken overnight. Scattered showers will be possible
in the KEAT/KMWH area after 09Z and for the KLWS/KPUW area after
12Z. Showers and t-storms chances increase region-wide after 18z
with highest confidence in -TSRA for KLWS/KPUW/KCOE. /EK
