NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
330 am PDT Friday Sep 4 2015 


Synopsis...an upper level low will move slowly south through 
western Washington today and into western Oregon. An upper level 
ridge will bring dry and slightly warmer weather on Saturday. A weak 
cold front will bring some rain on Sunday. Dry weather will return 
on Labor Day. 


&& 


Short term...an upper level low is spinning overhead this morning 
and will shift south into western Oregon this afternoon. So far 
showers are mainly over southern b.C. And Oregon with not much 
action across western Washington. Models do show some showers popping up 
over the mountains this afternoon and across the southern portion on 
the County Warning Area...south of kolm. Shower coverage will be isolated if 
anything does develop. Otherwise it will be another cool day today 
with temperatures again in the 60s. 


The upper level low will exit east on Saturday while an upper level 
ridge moves in from the west. This ridge will bring drier and 
slightly warmer weather to western Washington. 


A weak cold front will bring some clouds and rain on Sunday as it 
moves inland. The coast should see some precipitation early Sunday morning. 
The front does weaken as it moves inland but we could still see a 
few showers through the interior. Low level onshore flow will 
increase behind the front late Sat afternoon and evening. The 
onshore flow and trailing upper level trough will maintain a chance 
of showers through Sunday evening. 


Northerly flow will prevail on Labor Day as another ridge builds 
over the offshore waters. The forecast remains dry with temperatures in the 
middle to upper 60s. 33 


Long term...a warm front will move into southern b.C. Next Tuesday 
which may clip the northern tier of the County Warning Area for a chance of rain. 
Probability of precipitation are low at 20-30 percent for now. Otherwise it looks like an 
upper level ridge will remain in control across the Pacific northwest for 
another period of dry weather. Temperatures through the extended 
period were nudged upwards a few degrees from the previous forecast. 
The ridge may start to weaken and flatten by Friday as an upper 
level low develops over central b.C. 33 


&& 


Aviation...an upper level low over the Washington coast is moving slowly 
south into Oregon this morning. The moist air mass has become 
mostly stable this morning and the combination has given a mixed bag 
of conditions over western Washington. Scattered-broken ceilings 3-6k over most 
areas...but there are areas of MVFR and IFR ceilings and visibilities around. 
Most of these lower conditions should improve and/or burn off by 
early afternoon. 


Ksea...MVFR or IFR ceilings are likely this morning. Any lower ceilings 
that do develop should not last past noon. Light northerly winds 
should increase a bit in the afternoon. 


&& 


Marine...onshore gradients will return today and strengthen 
tonight. Small Craft Advisory winds are possible over the coastal 
waters and through the Strait of Juan Delaware fuca this evening. High 
pressure will build over the waters into the weekend. 


&& 


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