NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
330 am PDT Thursday Jul 24 2014 


Synopsis...upper level low pressure over Washington will shift 
northeastward into southern Alberta today. Showers this morning will 
gradually taper off this afternoon...except where a Puget Sound sound 
convergence zone develops. High pressure will build over the region 
on Friday and dominate the pattern through early next week. This 
will maintain dry weather and much warmer temperatures. 


&& 


Short term...water vapor imagery clearly shows the position of the 
upper level low over central Washington early this morning. Models agree 
that the main low center will track NE and move into southern Alberta 
this afternoon. There are still several features of interest that 
will affect the weather today even as the low shifts away from the 
area. The latest radar loop indicates showers are mostly 
concentrated over the S coast...SW interior...and through Puget Sound 
sound eastward over the Cascades. Convection has weakened notably 
overnight with no lightning strikes since last evening indicating 
lower topped showers. The vorticity maximum responsible for some of the 
shower activity will rotate east of the Cascades early this morning so 
precipitation coverage should generally decrease. Another area to 
watch is the band of wrap around moisture/rainfall over 
b.C./Vancouver Island and just beginning to affect the extreme north 
interior. The wrfgfs appears to match up best with current radar 
trends and is wetter across the north interior this morning. Decided to 
go with a blend of MOS probability of precipitation weighted toward the wrfgfs 
idea...categorical across the north and likely probability of precipitation south. 


Showers will generally be on the decrease this afternoon but moist 
onshore flow will maintain showers in the mountains. Chance probability of precipitation 
should suffice for most of The Lowlands with loss of dynamics and 
cool temperatures limiting diurnal convection. However...both the 
NAM-12 and wrfgfs develop a Puget Sound sound convergence zone during the 
afternoon as the flow through the Strait extends into the north sound 
and encounters the southerlies. Both the NAM and wrfgfs indicate the 
convergence zone will get going during the afternoon and continue 
through the evening. Not all models show the convergence zone 
lasting into the evening and even the NAM-12 has not been consistent 
from run to run. Will opt to leave the evening forecast unchanged 
and allow the next shift to fine tune the timing and probability of precipitation. 


Moist westerly flow continues into Friday. There could be a few 
showers in the mountains but it will be dry for most the area. Most 
areas will get some sunshine in the afternoon. Highs will warm up 
into the low to middle 70s...except cooler along the coast/Strait. 
Upper heights rise Friday night as The Four Corners highs nudges 
northward. The ridge will provide a stretch of dry weather and warming 
temperatures. Highs on Saturday could reach close to 80...about 15 
degrees warmer than wednesday's chilly highs in the middle 60s. 


Long term...long range models are fairly consistent in 
strengthening a large high pressure ridge over the interior western U.S. 
Sunday through the middle of next week. It appears the ridge axis 
will extend through the northern rockies which should result in SW flow 
aloft over Washington. This upper flow pattern favors light west-northwest surface 
gradients which may bring some clouds to the coast but probably not 
making much progress inland. GFS MOS gives low to middle 80s Sunday 
through the middle of next week. The European model (ecmwf) is stronger and further 
west with the ridge which could result in temperatures approaching 
90 degrees. Either way it will be a big change in the pattern with 
dry weather and above average temperatures. Mercer 


&& 


Aviation...the upper level low over the Washington coast will 
continue to lift north and east into eastern British Columbia this 
morning. Light flow aloft will become northwest and strengthen as 
the upper level low shifts to the northeast. Low level onshore flow 
will strengthen this afternoon and evening. 


The air mass over western Washington will remain unstable and moist 
this morning with showers persisting as the upper level low moves 
inland. VFR conditions will generally lower early this morning to 
MVFR levels with some improvement during the afternoon 
hours. The exception will be in areas with lingering 
showers...especially over the north as wrap around moisture and 
upper level dynamics continue to work their way around the upper 
level low and into the area. In addition...mesoscale models showing 
the development of a pscz over the central sound late in the 
afternoon and evening. 


Ksea...VFR conditions will lower to MVFR levels over the next few 
hours. Expect showers to linger through the morning with some 
improvement in the afternoon. Mesoscale models showing pscz forming 
over the central sound during the afternoon and evening hours with 
some chance that it will affect the metropolitan terminals. South winds 8 
to 10 knots will become southwest by midday. 


&& 


Marine...the surface low moving onshore this morning will weaken 
and continue to move inland. Moderate northwesterly winds over the 
outer coastal waters will ease this afternoon...while the onshore 
flow through the Strait will strengthen this afternoon producing 
15-25 knots westerlies through the central and east Strait through 
tonight. Similarly Small Craft Advisory southwesterlies will affect 
the northern inland waters this evening before easing after 
midnight. 


A more typical onshore flow pattern will persist through the weekend 
with Small Craft Advisory westerlies in the Strait at 
times...especially during the afternoon and evening hours. 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory outer coastal waters...central and east 
Strait...northern inland waters.
