NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
900 am PST Wednesday Feb 10 2016 


Synopsis...moist southwest flow aloft will bring wet weather to the 
area through the weekend. A weak front will bring a chance of rain 
today and tonight. Rain will increase as a warm front reaches the 
area Thursday...followed by a cold front Thursday night and Friday. 
An upper level trough will produce showers Friday night and Saturday. 
Another front will bring rain Sunday. 


&& 


Short term...radar shows light rain echoes over the olympic 
peninsula. Numerous spots there have received a hundredth or two of 
rain. The forecast continues to call for this weak weather system to 
move inland today without much punch. Rain will be likely over the 
olympic peninsula and north Cascades with a chance of rain 
elsewhere. Highs today will be in the 50s. 


There is a back edge to this system apparent on satellite imagery so 
some drying is likely tonight. The next system will arrive from the 
southwest. Recent model runs have slowed this system a bit...now it 
appears most of the rain will reach the interior of western 
Washington after 00z Friday. It will rain Thursday night...then a 
cold front will move through Friday morning...giving showers Friday 
afternoon. Highs will remain in the middle 50s. Burke 


Long term...previous discussion...there is good agreement on the 
general pattern in the extended models this morning with an upper 
level trough moving through western Washington Saturday morning. 
There is a long fetch of moisture aimed at the Pacific northwest 
beginning Saturday night and continuing through Monday with an upper 
level ridge building to the south. The models have been bouncing 
around on just how strong the ridge will be and if the ridge will be 
strong enough to push the moisture north of western Washington. The 
00z runs keep the area wet through Sunday then try to lift the band 
north on Monday. Current forecast follows this trend so will stay 
wit with the likely probability of precipitation Saturday night through Sunday night and 
chance probability of precipitation for Monday and Tuesday in the morning forecast package. 


&& 


Hydrology...river flooding is unlikely through Saturday. There is 
some potential for heavy rain over the Olympics beginning Saturday 
night which could cause the Skokomish River to flood early next week. 


&& 


Aviation...SW flow aloft. The air mass is stable with middle and 
high level moisture that will gradually lower and thicken as a weak 
front moves onshore late this afternoon and evening...and a warm 
front approaches the area from the SW on Thursday. 


A weak front is along the coast this morning and will push inland 
this evening. Radars show light rain over the western olympic 
peninsula with light showers in the north interior. Low level 
pressure gradients are offshore...so precipitation in the interior 
is very light...falling from a middle level cloud deck. MVFR to local 
IFR ceilings are seen along the Washington coast. Expect ceilings to 
gradually lower in the interior through this evening...falling to 
2000-3000 feet this evening as the front pushes inland. Mainly MVFR 
ceilings will continue through tonight. While middle and high level 
moisture will remain on Thursday...expect the lower levels to dry 
somewhat Thursday morning as a warm front well to the SW approaches the 
area and forces low level pressure gradients to become more 
offshore. Albrecht 


Ksea...ceilings around 100 will gradually lower to 050 this afternoon 
and 025-030 about 02z. Improvement back to ovc060-080 expected about 
16z Thursday. S wind 4-8 knots this afternoon becoming Ely Thursday morning. Albrecht 


&& 


Marine...a weak front will move east through the coastal waters 
today then inland this evening. Small Craft Advisory S to southeast winds 
are expected over the coastal waters through early this evening. 
A few hours of Small Craft Advisory southeast winds can also be expected in 
Admiralty Inlet today as flow aloft interacts with the Olympics and 
produces a mesoscale low on the NE olympic peninsula. Winds will 
diminish this evening behind the front. 


A stronger warm front will approach the waters from the SW on Thursday. 
Expect Small Craft Advisory east to southeast winds to develop over 
the coastal waters and at the entrances to the Strait on Thursday and 
continue Thursday night as the warm front moves NE then is followed by a 
cold front Thursday night into early Friday. 


Moderate onshore flow will follow Friday afternoon or evening into Sat 
morning. Small Craft Advisory south to southwest winds can be 
expected in the Puget Sound sound and Hood Canal area while Small Craft 
Advisory westerly flow can be expected over the central and eastern 
Strait of Juan Delaware fuca. 


Another front will affect the waters Sat night or sun. Albrecht 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory until midnight PST tonight for coastal 
waters from Cape Flattery to James Island 10 to 60 nm- 
coastal waters from Cape Flattery to James Island out 10 nm- 
coastal waters from James Island to Point Grenville 10 to 
60 nm-coastal waters from James Island to Point Grenville 
out 10 nm-coastal waters from Point Grenville to Cape 
Shoalwater 10 to 60 nm-coastal waters from Point Grenville 
to Cape Shoalwater out 10 nm.
