SHORT TERM. Tonight through Saturday . Shortwave trough and back door cold front moving across ID/Western MT are clipping the intermountain west this afternoon, with shower activity around the Spokane area. Models continue to indicate isolated showers developing over the northern Blues in WA and across Wallowa county this afternoon as this system moves over the eastern periphery of the CWA. With weak instability within this area and thunder already being observed in northeast WA, cannot rule a slight chance of thunder in these areas. Westerly winds through the Cascade gaps and into the Columbia Basin will also continue through the late afternoon as cross Cascade thermal gradient persists. Tomorrow, dry and calm conditions return as upper level ridge of high pressure over the eastern Pacific moves into the PacNW. Cloud cover will being to increase as ridge axis passes east over the region. By Friday night, ridge axis will be pushed into eastern WA/OR as an upper level low over the northeast Pacific pushes a shortwave trough and cold front into the PacNW. This will put the region under a moist southwest flow aloft into Saturday morning. Upper level shortwave trough and cold front will push across the region through Saturday morning, with precipitation chances increasing from west to east. Snow levels will be high enough ahead of this system that mountain slopes below the Cascade crests will mainly see rain showers with this initial system while lowland areas across the forecast area will at least see a chance of rain showers with trace amounts of rain early Saturday. By Saturday night, precipitation chances will drop off in the Basin and adjacent valleys, with chances of rain/snow showers possible in the mountains. Breezy westerly winds will also develop ahead of this system and persist through Saturday, especially through the Cascade gaps. Temperatures will be on a cooling trend into the weekend as the system today and Saturday filter in a cooler airmass into the region. Lawhorn/82
LONG TERM. Saturday night through Thursday . The axis of the organized low impacting our area over the weekend will begin to move onshore Sunday. PoPs will persist primarily in the mountains and central OR, as SW flow aloft advects moisture into the CWA, with the lower Basin seeing only slight chance PoPs. Another round of light precip is possible early Monday on the back end of the low, as deterministic GFS and ECMWF show strong NW flow aloft leading to some upslope showers along the mountains. Snow levels will dip a bit as colder air moves in behind the low, however are expected to remain above 4000 ft across the forecast area through the duration of the low's passage.
Tuesday and beyond, ensembles show ridging taking over for the rest of the work week, beginning another warming trend. Models disagree on the strength of this high, however, with deterministic models and NBM suggesting sufficient flow aloft for some mountain PoPs through the majority of the work week. The lower elevations, however, look to remain dry for the remainder of the long term period beyond Monday night. Highs expected to climb into the low to mid 70s by the end of next week in the valleys, while the mountains see 50s and 60s. 74
AVIATION. 00Z TAFs . VFR conditions will persist through the next 24 hours. Skies will become clear this evening and then later tonight mid and high clouds will increase again. On Friday clouds will continue to increase, but it will remain dry at all terminals. Winds will be lighter on Friday with speeds generally less than 10 kts. 88
