NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
330 am PDT sun Apr 26 2015 


Synopsis...a weak warm front will clip western Washington today and 
tonight with rain mainly along the coast. High pressure will bring 
warmer and drier weather on Monday. A pair of fronts will cross the 
region Tuesday and Wednesday for cooler and wetter weather. An upper 
level trough will maintain a chance of showers through the end of 
the week. 


&& 


Short term...temperatures dropped to the 30s to lower 40s early this 
morning with the skies clearing out. There is some patchy fog in the 
southwest interior as well. But clouds will increase across western 
Washington today as a warm front moves in. This is a weak front with light 
precipitation mainly affecting the olympic peninsula. The warm front will 
shift north into southern b.C. Tonight as an upper level ridge 
builds over the Pacific northwest. There is a chance of rain in the interior 
but precipitation amounts will be patchy and light. It will be warmer 
overnight with lows in the middle 40s to lower 50s. 


Monday will be warmer and drier as the upper level ridge continues 
to build over the region. Expect mostly sunny skies with highs in 
the 70s across the interior...with 60s along the coast. The ridge 
will exit east Monday night as a trough digs offshore. 


Look for cooler and wetter weather Tuesday and Wednesday. Showers 
will return on Tuesday as a cold front moves inland. Onshore flow 
will increase behind the front Tuesday afternoon for breezy S/SW 
winds. Models show a Puget Sound sound convergence forming over the 
central sound...and showers from the pscz may linger through Tuesday 
night. Another cold front will cross the area on Wednesday for 
another round of showers and breezy weather. Expect highs in the middle 
50s to lower 60s each day. 33 


Long term...overall confidence in the long range forecast remains 
low. Models show zonal flow Thursday and Friday. A trough over b.C. 
May clip western Washington for a chance of showers each day. After that the 
models disagree on the pattern through the weekend. Therefore will 
maintain a forecast close to seasonal norms. 33 


&& 


Aviation...temporary upper level ridge moving through western 
Washington this morning. Weakening front reaching the coast late in 
the day with the front dissipating as it moves inland tonight into 
early Monday morning. Air mass stable. 


Satellite imagery shows high clouds out ahead of the front have 
reached the coast and will spread inland over the next couple of 
hours. Patchy fog over the southwest interior will only last until 
around sunrise. Increasing middle level clouds later this morning with 
the ceilings lowering down to between 5000-8000 feet this 
afternoon. Rain beginning along the coast in the middle to late 
afternoon hours with the rain holding off over the interior until 
the evening hours. Ceilings lowering down to near 4000 feet with the 
onset of the precipitation. Some MVFR ceilings are possible along the 
coast this evening. 


Ksea...increasing clouds at or above 15000 feet this morning. Ceilings 
lowering this afternoon down to near 7000 feet by 00z Monday. Chance 
of rain in the evening hours will ceilings continuing to lower into 
the 4000-5000 foot range. Southerly winds 4 to 8 knots. Felton 


&& 


Marine...flat surface gradients this morning with weak high 
pressure across the area. A weak front will move into the coastal 
waters later this afternoon. The front will dissipate later tonight 
as it moves inland. Southerly winds will pick up over the coastal 
waters in advance of the front with middle to high end Small Craft 
Advisory winds are expected today into tonight. Southerly winds are 
forecasted to remain below 20 knots over the inland waters. 


After a break on Monday another front will move through the area 
Tuesday. This system also looks weak with the best chances for Small 
Craft Advisory winds in the central and eastern Strait behind the 
front. 


Forecast confidence is low beyond Tuesday with model solutions 
varying from run to run. Previous runs had a surface ridge building 
into the area but the 00z GFS is indicating another weak front 
moving through the waters. Felton 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory coastal waters.
