Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Spokane WA 218 PM PDT Fri Jun 21 2024

Warm and dry conditions will occur into Saturday with temperatures warming into the 80s and 90s. A dry cold front on Sunday will create elevated to critical fire weather concerns over portions of central and eastern Washington with widespread breezy to windy conditions. This will likely be followed by temperatures cooling back down towards normal values by Monday. Another warm up arrives on Tuesday and Wednesday before the next weather system enters on Thursday.


Today - Warm and dry conditions continue through this weekend. Am watching cumulus buildups producing probably virga over rural Boundary county right at the Canadian border. Deeper convective towers are east of the shortwave trough axis in Western Montana. The Pioneer Fire continues to show a hot spot on shortwave infrared satellite imagery this afternoon producing additional smoke.

Sat - The shortwave trough off the coast of Alaska continues to deepen the downstream northwest US ridge tonight yielding some of the warmest temperatures of the year so far tomorrow. Temperatures will be in the 80s and 90s regionwide. This poses a moderate heatrisk. This means most individuals are sensitive to heat, especially those without effective cooling and/or adequate hydration.

Sun - As the trough moves closer to the British Columbia coast tomorrow night, the 500 mb height gradient starts to tighten. A dry cold front will sweep across the region leading to elevated to critical fire weather conditions for parts of the region. Sustained winds of 10 to 25 MPH with gusts up to 40 MPH in combination with relative humidity of 12-25% will be found from the Columbia Basin into the Palouse, West Plains, and even nosing up into southern Stevens, Pend Oreille, and Ferry counties. Uncertainty is present with the deep marine layer on the west side of the Cascades banking up into the crest. Will RH's remain above critical thresholds for those valleys along the East Slopes of the Cascades? Not sure yet.

Monday through Friday: A cooler day Monday in the wake of the cold front passage Sunday. Temperatures will be near average for late June, which is upper 70s to mid 80s. Mostly clear skies and winds lighter than Sunday is expected. A transient ridge moves through Tuesday, and Wednesday we will see southwesterly flow ahead of the next weather system. This will bump up our temperatures above average- in the mid 80s to lower 90s. Wednesday there is some instability in the afternoon to see some showers along the Cascade crest and the Canadian border, with less than a 20% chance of thunderstorms right along the Canadian border.
Thursday a low pressure system will move through the region.
Thursday poses a better chance to see showers across the region.
Parts of the Columbia Basin and east slope valleys will likely miss out, but other locations have a 20-50% chance of showers.
There is also a 15-30% chance of thunderstorms across northern WA and ID. Winds will increase as well, and currently we have gusts 20 to 25 mph...but that could change as we get closer to the event. Friday a ridge starts to build off the west coast and showers with isolated thunderstorms continue for parts of the Inland Northwest. Temperatures will cool Thursday to near average and Friday to below average readings.

Next Weekend: For those looking towards next weekend....the clusters have varying scenarios, with a near 50/50 split for Saturday with the trough remaining over the area or a ridge building in. Then Sunday the clusters start leaning toward a higher probability of a ridge scenario
at this time Saturday there could be some mountain showers up north closer to the Canadian border and Sunday looks dry. Temperatures Saturday will be in the 70s to lower 80s, with temps warming about 5 degrees for Sunday. /Nisbet

00z TAFS: Daytime cumulus with rapidly diminish after 2-4z this evening. Conditions will be dry and warm with light winds through the TAF period.

FORECAST CONFIDENCE AND/OR ALTERNATE SCENARIOS: High confidence in VFR conditions through 00z Sunday.

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