NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
845 am PST sun Mar 1 2015 


Synopsis...an upper ridge and offshore low level flow will bring 
another day of fair weather to western Washington today. A weak 
weather system will move southeast through the area tonight 
for areas of light precipitation. Dry weather will prevail 
the remainder of next week under the influence of an upper 
ridge and low level offshore flow. 


&& 


Short term...dry northerly flow aloft will prevail today with a few 
passing high clouds. 


A weak upper level disturbance will drop down from the northwest 
tonight. This will bring clouds with a little rain at the coast and 
a chance of rain farther inland. 


Rain chances will end quickly Monday morning as the upper level 
disturbance moves south of the area. Low level north to norhteast 
offshore flow will increase as a 1040 mb surface high drops south 
into British Columbia. This will help dry the low levels out and 
clouds should be on the decrease later in the day. There will also 
be some breezy north winds during the day... especially over the 
north interior. 


An upper ridge over the northeast Pacific will bring dry and mainly 
sunny weather Tuesday although there could be some high clouds at 
times. Schneider 


Long term...previous discussion...northerly flow aloft and dry 
weather will continue Wednesday...as the upper ridge weakens and 
moves to the Pacific northwest coast. The ridge will move inland 
Wednesday night and Thursday...with west or northwest flow aloft 
over western Washington in its wake. 


A weak upper shortwave could bring some light precipitation to parts 
of the forecast area Thursday and Thursday night...and the most 
recent runs of the GFS and Canadian models show this. However 
the European model (ecmwf) and earlier runs of the other models indicated dry 
weather. I will stand pattern with the dry forecast for now...and 
hopefully the model runs today will help US pin this down. 


Another upper ridge will build offshore Friday and Saturday for more 
dry weather. Mcdonnal 


&& 


Hydrology...flooding is unlikely for the next 7 days. 


&& 


Aviation...a large upper level ridge centered offshore along 140w 
will maintain dry northwest flow across West Washington through 00z. Areas of high 
clouds will spread S through 00z ahead of an approaching upper level 
shortwave trough. Good VFR conditions are expected through 00z. 


An upper level shortwave trough over the central b.C. Coast at 16z 
will move southeast over West Washington by 06z. Middle level clouds will begin spreading 
over West Washington ahead of the trough after 00z with ceilings lowering to around 
bkn050 with some light rain over the north after 03z. Lowering ceilings and 
areas of rain will spread S with the shortwave trough...with areas 
of MVFR ceilings possible 06z-15z. 


Ksea...unrestricted VFR conditions through 03z with just some high 
clouds over the area at times. Ceilings bkn050-100 increasing after 03z. 
Surface winds will be S-SW 4-7 knots. Kam 


&& 


Marine...a weak surface trough will remain over West Washington 
today...embedded in a broad surface ridge that extends between a 
large surface high offshore and another centered over Montana. Pressure 
gradients across West Washington will remain weak...so winds will be generally 
light. 


An upper level shortwave trough over the central b.C. Coast this 
morning will move southeast across West Washington tonight. Mesoscale models continue 
to indicate moderate north winds developing over the coastal waters 
tonight with the shortwave trough...so a Small Craft Advisory has been issued with 
the morning update. 


Behind the upper level trough...a 1044 mb surface high will move S 
across interior b.C. On Monday. Rising pressures over b.C. Will 
increase the northerly pressure gradient across the northern 
interior of West Washington starting Monday morning. The current forecast looks 
OK with areas of Small Craft Advisory winds extending from the north inland waters down 
through Puget Sound sound. 


As the b.C. Surface high moves southeast the pressure gradient across West Washington 
will shift more east-NE and strengthen Monday night and Tuesday. This 
should allow moderate to strong east-NE flow to develop across the north 
inland waters...extending out through the Strait and across the 
northern coastal waters. The flow could be strong enough to reach 
gale force Monday night and Tuesday. Kam 


&& 


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