NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
900 am PDT Thursday Jul 24 2014 


Synopsis...precipitation over western Washington will decrease 
today as the upper level low over southeast British Columbia moves 
into Alberta. There may be a few sun breaks in the afternoon as the 
air mass begins to dry. High pressure will start building over the 
region Friday...bringing sunny warmer weather through the middle of 
next week. 


&& 


Short term...a 5590 meter upper low is over southeast British 
Columbia this morning and moving slowly east-northeast. The air mass 
over western Washington remains quite moist...with middle and high 
level moisture wrapping around the north side of the low and moist 
onshore flow at low levels. Precipitation has been steadily 
decreasing this morning though...and at 8 am was limited mainly to 
the northwest interior...Everett area...and the central and north 
Cascades. 


The upper low will move into southern Alberta late today...and the 
wrap around moisture will move northeast with it. The air mass over 
western Washington will remain generally moist below 6000 or 7000 feet 
though as onshore flow continues. Some showers should continue over 
the Cascades and there will probably be a weak Puget Sound sound 
convergence zone north of Seattle...but outside of that showers 
should be light and spotty at most. There will probably be some sun 
breaks in the afternoon. 


Westerly flow will prevail over western Washington tonight as the 
low moves into Saskatchewan...and an upper ridge will just begin 
building over the region on Friday. Low level onshore flow will veer 
to northwest...and the air mass will gradually dry. Clouds over 
western Washington tonight and Friday morning should give way to 
partly to mostly sunny skies Friday afternoon. High temperatures 
will be back into the 70s over most of the area. 


The upper ridge will continue to build Friday night and Saturday... 
with its axis along or just west of the Rocky Mountains. The 500 mb 
heights over western Washington will climb to around 5820 meters... 
and onshore flow will be weak. There will be some marine layer 
clouds at night and Saturday morning...especially at the coast...but 
the day will be sunny and warmer yet. Mcdonnal 


Long term...here is the long term section from the early morning 
forecast discussion -- long range models are fairly consistent in 
strengthening a large high pressure ridge over the interior western U.S. 
Sunday through the middle of next week. It appears the ridge axis 
will extend through the northern rockies which should result in SW flow 
aloft over Washington. This upper flow pattern favors light west-northwest surface 
gradients which may bring some clouds to the coast but probably not 
making much progress inland. GFS MOS gives low to middle 80s Sunday 
through the middle of next week. The European model (ecmwf) is stronger and further 
west with the ridge which could result in temperatures approaching 
90 degrees. Either way it will be a big change in the pattern with 
dry weather and above average temperatures. Mercer 


&& 


Aviation...the upper level low now over southeast British Columbia 
will continue to move east today. Moderate northwest flow aloft will 
develop as an upper ridge builds over the area. Low level onshore 
flow will strengthen today. Air mass is unstable and moist this 
morning but will stabilize and dry this afternoon and evening. 


Ceilings are generally MVFR 2-3k feet this morning except for some IFR 
patches mainly in the north interior. There will be an overall 
improving trend in the afternoon and evening...except mesoscale 
models show the development of a Puget Sound sound convergence zone over 
the central sound late in the afternoon and evening. 


Ksea...MVFR conditions with showers will become more VFR after 21z. 
There is some chance a pscz over the central sound will affect the 
terminal. Southwest wind 8-12 knots. Chb 


&& 


Marine...moderate onshore flow has already developed with Small 
Craft Advisory strength winds already occurring in the Strait. Have 
updated the grids and forecasts for 20-30 knots westerly winds in the 
Strait beginning this morning. Moderate northwesterly winds over the 
outer coastal waters will ease this afternoon. 


A more typical onshore flow pattern will persist through the weekend 
with Small Craft Advisory westerlies in the Strait possible at times 
during the afternoon and evening hours. Chb 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory outer coast...central and east Strait... 
northern inland waters.
