NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
330 am PDT Wednesday Apr 16 2014 


Synopsis...a warm front will stall over the region today for rain 
at times. A cold front will cross western Washington on Thursday. 
Drier weather is forecast on Friday with weak high pressure 
overhead. The next front will arrive later Saturday. 


&& 


Short term...expect rain at times across western Washington today 
as a warm front stalls over the region. Skies will remain cloudy 
with temperatures remaining in the 50s. A cold front will then cross the 
area on Thursday for another wet day. There is Little Break in the 
action and will keep categorical probability of precipitation throughout the period. The 
cold front should exit east Thursday evening. Onshore flow will 
increase behind the front and a Puget Sound sound convergence zone will 
likely form over the central sound. Showers with the convergence 
zone may linger into Friday morning. Otherwise...weak high pressure will 
bring a period of drier weather Friday afternoon through Sat 
morning. Wet weather will return Saturday afternoon/evening as the 
next cold front arrives. 33 


Long term...overall confidence in the long term period remains low 
as the models are still not aligned. The general pattern consists of 
an upper low over the NE Pacific with a series of fronts crossing 
western Washington. But the exact timing of each system is still unclear. 
Therefore will not make any widespread changes from the previous 
forecast. 33 


&& 


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 
rise about a foot today...then rise an additional four feet on 
Thursday with a crest close to 9 feet. The river level will begin 
falling later Thursday night and continue falling Friday as high 
pressure moves over the area. 


Total rainfall for the slide area through Thursday night will be on 
the order of two inches. 


Additional fronts will affect the slide area later Saturday and 
Monday. These systems are not expected to be especially wet or 
hydrologically significant but they will keep conditions wet. 


&& 


Aviation...upper level high pressure offshore will move over the 
Pacific northwest tonight. Moderate west-SW flow aloft. A warm front stalled 
across western Washington will lift north of the area tonight. A trough and surface 
front arrive Thursday. Moist at all levels and stable. Rain at times. 


Mostly MVFR ceilings 1-2k feet with rain at times. Visible locally down to 
2-3sm along the coast and 3-5sm interior. 


Ksea...S-SW wind 6-12 knots. Rain at times with mostly MVFR ceilings 
through Thursday...occasionally improving to a 3-5k feet ceiling. 


&& 


Marine...a warm front stalled across the area will lift northward tonight 
as the flow lifts ahead of an approaching cold front. Low end small 
craft winds can be expected over the coastal waters and West Entrance 
to the Strait through the morning before easing. Winds elsewhere 
generally less than 20 knots. 


A stronger front will bring Small Craft Advisory winds to most of 
the waters on Thursday. Gale force westerlies are possible in the 
Strait Thursday afternoon and evening but confidence is low. Winds 
ease Friday as high pressure builds over the area. Dtm 


&& 


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...Small Craft Advisory coast and West Entrance.
