NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
325 PM PDT Thursday Apr 17 2014 


Synopsis...showers will decrease tonight as a front moves inland. 
Drier weather is forecast on Friday with weak high pressure 
overhead. A second front will arrive later Saturday. A broad upper 
level trough will bring showery weather early next week. 


&& 


Short term...a front will move inland with rain changing to showers 
early in the evening. Strong onshore flow will develop behind the 
front for breezy conditions this evening most areas. Showers will 
taper pretty fast tonight...becoming mostly confined to the 
mountains and a Puget Sound sound convergence zone after midnight. A weak 
upper ridge will build over the area on Friday for a mostly dry day. 
Skies are expected to become partly sunny later Friday as the low 
levels dry. 


A second front will bring rain later Saturday. Models have been 
pretty consistent with the idea of rain reaching the coast around 
middle-morning and spreading inland in the afternoon. Sunday will 
probably be a mainly dry day in between weather systems. 


A third front will be approaching from the west on Sunday. Models 
have not been consistent with what this front will do. The best 
guess for now is the front will slow down and stall near the coast 
on Sunday. The coast will probably see some rain from this system 
Sunday but there is a good chance the interior will stay dry. 
Schneider 


Long term...an upper trough over the eastern Pacific will move 
toward the Pacific northwest Monday with increasingly moist and 
unstable southerly flow aloft. This pattern could be favorable for 
afternoon and evening thunderstorms...mainly over the Cascades. 


The upper trough will shift over western Washington Tuesday...then 
sag south of the area Wednesday with weak high pressure building 
overhead. Tuesday will probably be a fairly showery day...with less 
showers on Wednesday as the upper trough pulls away. A front could 
reach the area on Thursday but confidence in this is pretty low for 
now. Schneider 


&& 


Hydrology...river flooding is unlikely for the next 7 days. 


The exception is the North Fork of the stillaguamish river east of 
the sunrise 530 landslide near Oso where a Flood Warning remains in 
effect until further notice. Flooding continues for this river as a 
result of water pooled behind the debris dam that partially blocks 
the river. 


The North Fork of the stillaguamish near Arlington is forecast to 
crest just under 9 feet tonight. The river level will then 
begin falling later tonight and continue falling on Friday as high 
pressure moves over the area. A front will bring another batch of 
rain Saturday afternoon and evening. This is expected to cause the 
river to rise about a foot Saturday night. The river will begin 
falling again Sunday and continue to fall early next week as drier 
weather prevails. 


&& 


Aviation...an upper trough offshore will move across the area 
tonight. Strong SW flow aloft will become northwest. A cold front will move 
onshore this afternoon and will be east of the Cascades by late this 
evening. Expect strong onshore flow to develop in the wake of the 
front. 


Ceilings should be mainly in the 3-5k feet range through early this 
evening but there will be areas of ceilings in the 1-2 feet range along 
with visibilities of 2-4sm. Ceilings are expected to lift into the 4-6k feet 
range overnight but there will be areas of ceilings mainly in the 2-3k 
feet range. 


Expect a Puget Sound sound convergence zone /pscz/ to quickly develop 
between kawo and kpae behind the cold front early this evening. 
The pscz should become quasistationary near the King/Snohomish 
County border by late this evening. The mesoscale models dissipate 
the pscz overnight but feel that this is too quick. There is a 
possibility that it may drift southward into King County...north of kbfi 
late tonight. 


Ksea...ceilings will mainly be in the 1-3k feet range this afternoon 
but will lift into to near 5k feet this evening. Winds will become 
SW 10-15 knots with occasional gusts near 25 knots this afternoon. Frontal passage 
is now expected about 0000 UTC. 


&& 


Marine...a cold front about 35 nm offshore will move onshore this 
afternoon and across the inland waters late today. Expect westerly 
winds to rise to gale force over parts of the Strait of Juan Delaware fuca 
behind the front. A 1020 mb high along the coast and lower pressure east of 
the Cascades will result in light onshore flow on Friday. Expect a 
strong cold front to impact the region on Saturday...followed by a 
weaker system late Sunday. 


The wave watch model continued to advertise large waves of 16 to 19 
feet reaching the coast late Saturday night or early Sunday...and 
see no further reason to undercut the model. Thus the forecast will 
indicate large ocean waves reaching the coast late this weekend. 
Will issue a Special Weather Statement to highlight high surf 
conditions developing late this weekend. Those planning clam digging 
or other beach activities this weekend should monitor the latest 
wave forecasts. 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...Flood Warning remains in effect for the North Fork of the 
stillaguamish river east of the sunrise 530 landslide. 
Pz...Gale Warning central and eastern Strait. 
.Small Craft Advisory all other waters.
