Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Spokane WA 220 AM PST Wed Feb 19 2020
SYNOPSIS. The remainder of the week will be dry with near average temperatures. We can expect a good deal of sunshine and relatively light winds through Friday. The arrival of a storm system over the weekend is expected to bring increasing chances for rain and snow, and gusty winds Sunday into Monday.
Today through Thursday: Ridge of high pressure influences Eastern Washington and North Idaho through this period. The result will be dry weather with some low clouds and fog in a few lowland and valley locations during the overnight and morning hours. At the surface the thermal ridge axis will remain west of the Cascade crest and thus influence low level winds to make them prevail generally from the East. Sunshine during the day with efficient radiational cooling during the nighttime hours will allow for high temperatures near normal with overnight lows more on the cool side of what would be considered normal. /Pelatti
Thursday Night and Saturday: The ridge has exited the region and a zonal flow pattern is positioned over the Pacific Northwest. The ridge flattens and shifts the flow pattern to West to East zonal. A weak dry shortwave will push through the region. The Cascade Crest could get some spill over moisture from Western WA but not lot impacts expected form it. temperatures are expected to be similar to past couple of days.
Saturday Night and Sunday: A deeper trough will begins push inland form the coast and carry a Low through Southern BC with decent push of moisture with it. Models are in fairly good agreement with the track of the Low but differ on the timing. The GFS is bringing the Low into the region overnight. The EC is carrying it through the region Sunday afternoon. The timing difference is keeping the confidence of precip type for the Basin low. As of now it will be a snow event for the mountains and areas North of HWY 2 for Washington and the North IDaho Panhandle. If during the day, it will be mainly a rain event for the Basin and Valley locations. Early estimates of accumulations show the Basin and Valley locations receiving around an inch or two. The Cascades are to receive the most with around a foot for the crest and 4 to 8 inches for the midlevel areas around 3500ft. The Idaho Panhandle mountains can expect 6 to 10 inches. With this wave, the gradient is expected to tighten and bring breezy winds to the Basin with potential gusts into the low 30s MPH across the Basin. With the region being in the warm sector of the Low, temperatures are expected to nudge higher. Highs for the period will be in the 40s and low 50s. Overnight lows will be in the 30s for the Basin and 20s for the Northern valleys and higher terrain.
Monday through Wednesday: The period starts off with lingering snow mountain snow showers as the Low exits the region through Monday morning. A ridge will build along the coast and bring another dry period as high pressure influences the Inland Northwest. Outside of some isolated mountain showers, the pattern is fairly quiet. Highs for the period will be in the 40s and low 50s. Overnight lows will be in the 30s for the Basin and 20s for the Northern valleys and higher terrain. /JDC
AVIATION. 06Z TAFs: This set of TAFs is pretty straight forward. Strong subsidence will suppress cloud development over the next 24-36 hours as high pressure builds over the Inland Northwest. With surface dewpoints in the teens, it will be too dry for anything more than patchy fog in sheltered valleys. Several of our TAFs are only one line with clear skies and light winds. /GKoch

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
