Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Areal Flood Watch  Statement as of 12:08 am PST on December 20, 2014


... Flood Watch remains in effect from this afternoon through late
Sunday night...

The Flood Watch continues for

* portions of western Washington... including the following
counties... Grays Harbor... Clallam... Jefferson... Skagit...
Whatcom... King... Lewis... Mason... Pierce... Snohomish... Thurston.

* From this afternoon through late Sunday night

* heavy rain is forecast over western Washington today and
Sunday... especially in the mountains. Strong south flow aloft
will bring heavy rain at times to the coast and Olympics today.
Heavy rain will spread over the Cascades late this afternoon as
strong westerly flow aloft develops. Models currently taper rain
over the Olympics on Sunday but keep heavy rain going in the
Cascades into Sunday evening... especially over the Cascades from
about King County south. The total model rainfall over about 48
hours from this morning through Sunday night amounts to around
three to six inches over the Olympics and central Cascades with
a nine-inch bulls-eye over Mount Rainier. Rainfall over The
Lowlands will generally be an inch or less as the westerly flow
causes a rain shadow east of the Olympics.

* These rainfall amounts are enough to cause flooding. At this
time the rivers most likely to flood are the ones flowing off
the Cascades of King... Pierce... and Lewis counties... as well as
the unusually flood-prone Skokomish River in Mason County. Any
flooding would likely begin Saturday night on the Olympics and
Sunday for the Cascades... with crests Sunday night or Monday.
The exact position of the stream of moisture is uncertain so
this outlook covers the entire olympic peninsula and all of the
Cascades rivers.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Flood Watch means conditions are favorable for flooding but
flooding is not imminent or occurring. Monitor the latest
forecasts from the National Weather Service and be ready to act
quickly if flooding is observed or a warning is issued.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
930 am PST Sat Dec 20 2014 


Synopsis...a warm front will move across western Washington today. 
Strong moist west flow aloft will follow tonight and Sunday. This 
will bring wet and windy conditions to The Lowlands and heavy rain 
over the mountains. An upper level ridge will build over the region 
Monday for drier weather. The ridge will weaken Monday night 
allowing a couple of weather systems to reach the area through middle 
next week. 


&& 


Short term...a strong warm front will move inland today for more 
rain and heavy mountain precipitation. High wind is marginal over the north 
interior and will let the warning continue through noon today. Washington 
dot shows snow in the passes this morning and a Winter Weather 
Advisory remains in effect. The snow levels will rise to 5000-6000 
feet this afternoon as warmer air moves inland...with snow changing 
over to rain in the passes. Strong persistent westerly flow will 
prevail tonight with heavy rain continuing in the mountains. This 
will lead to possible river flooding and a Flood Watch remains in 
effect. Models show Seattle in the rain shadow tonight due to 
westerly downslope flow off the Olympics...rainfall totals will be 
light if anything. 


Strong westerly upslope flow will continue on sun with more heavy 
rain across the west slopes of the mountains. An upper level ridge 
will then build inland Sun night with heavy precipitation tapering off. The 
ridge will remain in place on Monday for drier weather. 33 


Long term...previous discussion...model solutions remain in flux 
from Tuesday Onward. Once again the latest GFS and European model (ecmwf) solutions 
are in fair agreement...but the solutions keep changing with each 
New Run. The weather pattern will remain active next week...but not 
as wet and windy as this weekend. The latest solutions flatten the 
Monday ridge...allowing warm advection rain to creep through it and 
over West Washington on Tuesday. A normal strength frontal system crosses the 
area on Wednesday. No significant systems show up Thursday and 
Friday...but the northwest flow aloft may still be moist enough to keep a 
chance of rain. Confidence remains low. Kam 


&& 


Hydrology...three to five inches of rain is expected to fall over 
the Olympics and over the Cascades from Snohomish through Lewis 
counties. A bullseye of seven inches is possible over Montana Rainier. 
This amount of rain is great enough to cause flooding on some of the 
rivers flowing off the Olympics and Cascades. A Flood Watch remains 
in effect. Less precipitation is forecast over the Cascades of Whatcom and 
Skagit counties with two to four inches...the flood threat is less 
overall. 


Precipitation is starting as snow over the Cascades this morning but 
snow levels will rise rapidly...to 5000 to 7000 feet this afternoon 
and evening. The heaviest rain will be over the Olympics today and 
tonight...and over the Cascades from late this afternoon through 
Sunday morning. 


Any flooding would likely begin as early as late this afternoon or 
evening on the Skokomish River. The Cascade rivers could flood 
tonight or Sunday. Models show heavy rain ending Sunday night. 


&& 


Aviation...a strong frontal system will move through western 
Washington today and tonight with westerly flow aloft. At the 
surface strong southeast gradients today will turn onshore tonight. 
The air mass will be moist and stable with widespread rain. 


Ceilings are generally around 3k feet this morning with visibility 
restrictions to 2sm in rain at times. There might be a few hours of 
improvement early this afternoon...with some 4-5k feet ceilings...but 
conditions will deteriorate late this afternoon and evening. The 
mountains and foothills will be obscured. 


Ksea...rain and an increasing southerly wind of 12g22kt later today 
with the passage of a second frontal wave. Chb 


&& 


Marine...a strong system will move through western Washington today 
and tonight. Gale southeast winds will switch to southwest over the 
coast this afternoon. Over the inland waters gale southeast winds 
will become Small Craft Advisory strength southwest winds. Seas over 
the coastal waters will be around 20 feet today. There is a high 
surf advisory for the coastal beaches through today and a coastal 
Flood Advisory for minor flooding of low areas near the beaches 
during the time of high tide this morning. 


Sunday should be a postfrontal day with strong onshore flow easing 
Sunday night and Monday. A ridge of high pressure will build over the 
area on Monday. A weaker system will arrive around Tuesday. Chb 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 


Washington...flood watches in effect for portions of western Washington. 
High Wind Warning western Whatcom...San Juan 
Islands..Admiralty Inlet. 
Wind Advisory western Skagit County. 
Winter Weather Advisory Cascades.
