Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Spokane WA 439 AM PDT Wed Jun 19 2024

Showers and isolated thunderstorms will again develop today across across the northern mountains. A warming trend is expected through the week, with high temperatures rebounding into the mid 80s to mid 90s on Saturday. A dry cold front on Sunday will create elevated fire weather concerns with widespread breezy winds across the region.

Today through Thursday Night: The weather pattern of a long wave trough over the western US and a strong ridge over the central and eastern US persists the next couple days. Yet there continues to be some subtle changes in the details that will bring about a warming trend with less convection as compared to the past couple days. For today the flow aloft will be lighter over the region resulting in convection focused more over the mountains. There will also be drier air (lowering precipitatable water) moving into southern WA and the lower ID Panhandle. The net result will be convection limited to mainly the northern mountains. Uncapped surface based CAPE of 500-1000 J/KG will lead to another round of scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms over these areas this afternoon into the early evening. The NAM and ECMWF also show some convective qpf this afternoon over the Blue Mountains and Camas Prairie so added a mention to the forecast for this area.
One last thing to mention today, and that is early morning fog.
Areas of clearing overnight after yesterday's shows has allowed patchy coverage to form in the valleys of NE Washington and the Idaho Panhandle. The early AM sunrise and shallow coverage will result in fog lifting or burning off by 8 AM.

On Thursday the drier air pushes north into NE Washington and N Idaho. This should result in even less convection over the region, except for a 20 percent chance over the Cascades as a weak wave passing combined with afternoon heating may be enough to generate isolated showers or thunderstorms. Lastly, prior to the Thursday afternoon convection potential the NAM is showing a weak wave passing through the Columbia Basin and Palouse Thursday morning.
There is some weak elevated instability that could result in a few high based showers. Most likely if anything develops precip would evaporate before reaching the ground so kept the forecast dry.

The trending of less convection and more intense mid-June sun the next few days will support the beginning of a warming trend. JW

Friday through Tuesday: A ridge of high pressure will amplify over the region heading into the weekend, warming high temperatures into the upper 80s and even mid 90s for some locations by Saturday. It's looking like Friday and Saturday will be beautiful for outdoor activities. Just be sure to stay hydrated and take breaks in the shade as needed!

By Sunday the ridge will begin to push eastward, and a trough will quickly take its place over the Inland Northwest. While the trough is not looking to carry any moisture with it, it will create a pressure gradient resulting in winds picking up regionwide Sunday afternoon. Gusts ranging from 20 to 30 mph are expected. There is potential for gusts up to 40 mph through the Cascade gaps and over the Waterville Plateau. Temperatures will be several degrees cooler than Saturday's, but with dry, breezy conditions in place, rapid spread of fires will still be a concern. SPC is already highlighting Central and Eastern WA for potential fire concerns on Sunday.

Temperatures will cool a few more degrees Monday due to the continued influence of the trough before we transition into a more zonal flow pattern and temperatures rebound toward mid next week.

1245z Update - Fog expanded in the past hour around the Spokane area and advected into KGEG. TAF has been amended to include fog through 1430z before gradually lifting 1430z-16z then dissipating.

Previous TAF discussion:

12z TAFS: Ground fog has developed over many valleys of NE Washington and North Idaho including Bonners Ferry, Sandpoint, and Coeur d'Alene, with a few patches around Spokane Felts Field as well. With the sunrise at 12z, the time for fog to expand further is closing, so went near persistence compared to 11z obs for the first 3 hours, which included IFR conditions at KCOE. Did include a tempo group at KSFF as well (although confidence in precise restrictions is low). For this afternoon another round of showers and thunderstorms will develop over the northern mountains. There is a 20% chance of thunderstorms for the northern airports from Winthrop through Omak, eastward through Republic, Colville, Sandpoint, and Bonners Ferry.

FORECAST CONFIDENCE AND/OR ALTERNATE SCENARIOS: There is high confidence of IFR conditions at KCOE 15z, with improvement by 17z with the high mid-June sun angle. Confidence is lowest at KSFF and KGEG given fog near these airports, but with time running out for fog expansion the most likely scenario is for prevailing conditions to remain VFR, with a moderate chance of a temporary restriction at KSFF. High confidence in continued VFR conditions for the other TAF sites (KMWH/KEAT/KPUW/KLWS). JW


Confidence descriptors: Low - Less than a 30 percent chance Moderate - 30 to 70 percent chance High - Greater than a 70 percent chance
