NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
820 PM PDT Monday Sep 15 2014 


Synopsis...developing low level onshore will bring marine clouds to 
the coast and parts of the interior through Tuesday along with much 
cooler daytime temperatures. A threat of showers is expected 
Wednesday into Friday as an approaching low pressure system aloft 
moves onshore with the best shower chance on Thursday. Rebuilding 
higher pressure aloft this weekend should produce more warm sunny 
and dry weather. 


&& 


Short term...the upper ridge was over the Pacific northwest interior this 
evening with southerly flow aloft over Washington. An upper trough was in 
the vicinity of 140w with a couple of shortwaves rotating through 
it. The first was moving north through western Oregon. Good 
diffluent flow aloft but limited moisture. At this hour...it was 
nothing but some higher level clouds though keeping an eye on any 
short-fused developing high level convection. 


This shortwave has had surface reflection though. Low level onshore 
flow has begun and stratus/fog moving up the Oregon coast today was 
continuing up the Washington coast this evening. Expect it to penetrate into 
at least the south sound through the Chehalis gap - perhaps as far 
as SeaTac Airport - and parts of the Strait Tuesday morning. Using the 
old phrase - stratus coming at US. The cooler marine air mass will 
also knock high temperatures Tuesday down about 10 to 20 degrees in many 
places...very noticeable and for some - quite refreshing. 


The 00z forecasts in thus far continue the trend of tracking the next 
shortwave and upper trough onshore Wednesday and Thursday for the first real 
threat of showers in about two weeks. Even cooler maximum temperatures too. 
Forecast here is on track. 


Trivia news bit - as of today...ksea has hit 80 degrees or better 
45 times this year...now tied for third most number of days with 
1961. The record is 47 days in 1958. Number 2 is 46 days in 1967. 
Could 80 be hit again this weekend? Stay tuned. Buehner 


Long term...from previous discussion...on Friday there will be some 
residual showers...mostly in the mountains. An upper ridge builds 
over the weekend with the GFS showing heights in the middle 580s but 
the Euro pushing nearly to 590dm. Skies will be sunny and 
temperatures should reach at least the low 80s in many places by 
Sunday. The GFS has a weak system approaching by Monday so lower 
temperatures are likely and there will be a chance of showers. Burke 


&& 


Aviation...areas of fog and marine stratus are spreading north 
along the Washington coast this evening as onshore flow develops. Fog and 
low clouds will spread into the Chehalis gap and should make it into 
Puget Sound sound around daybreak. Otherwise...the ridge is moving east 
and SW flow aloft will increase through Tuesday...giving some middle 
and high clouds. The air mass will become unstable in the middle levels 
through Tuesday and at the least some convective debris from Oregon 
will spread into western Washington. The best chance of a thunderstorm will be 
in the Cascades. 


Ksea...light winds and increasing cirrus...then developing onshore 
flow will give a southerly breeze Tuesday. Several hours of morning low 
clouds and fog area a good bet Tuesday. Taf looks pretty good no big 
changes expected this evening. 


&& 


Marine...fog and low clouds are moving north along the coast as 
onshore flow develops this evening. Pressure gradients will 
increase through The Straight of Juan Delaware fuca through the day 
Tuesday with with Small Craft Advisory strength westerlies likely in 
the afternoon and evening. Gradients will be on the light side Wednesday 
through Friday. 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...none. 
Pz...none.
