Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Wind Advisory  Statement as of 9:45 PM PDT on August 28, 2015


... Wind Advisory remains in effect from 11 am to 5 PM PDT
Saturday...

* timing... midday through Saturday afternoon.

* Winds... south wind 15 to 30 mph with gusts to 45 mph.

* Impacts... downed limbs and local power outages.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Wind Advisory means that winds of 35 mph are expected. Winds
this strong can make driving difficult... especially for high
profile vehicles. Use extra caution.






 Special Statement  Statement as of 6:02 am PDT on August 28, 2015


... A strong Pacific storm could bring strong winds and locally
heavy rain to western Washington on Saturday...

A much stronger system will impact the region on Saturday. This
system has the potential to bring winds of 20 to 35 mph with
gusts of 45 to 50 mph to parts of the coast... northwest
interior... and I-5 corridor. Winds this strong usually occur in
fall and winter. Thus... this wind event could create more problems
due to the deciduous trees still having their leaves. This will
make the branches more prone to snapping in strong winds. In
addition to the possibility of downed tree limbs... the gusty winds
could cause local power outages.

Rain will be locally heavy at times on Saturday. Rainfall amounts
of 1 to 3 inches are forecast for the coast and in the
mountains... with a half to one inch elsewhere... during the 24 hour
period ending at 5 am PDT Sunday. This amount of rain will likely
end or help reduce the size of any ongoing wildfires.

In addition to the wind and rain... temperatures will be below
normal on Saturday. Highs are forecast to be mainly in the mid to
upper 60s across The Lowlands.

Those planning outdoor activities in the mountains in particular
this weekend should pay close attention to the latest forecasts
from the National Weather Service.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
900 PM PDT Friday Aug 28 2015 


Synopsis...a developing low pressure system will bring track toward 
the region tonight. This system will usher in unseasonably wet and 
windy conditions across much of western Washington on Saturday. Rain 
will transition to showers behind a front on Sunday. Additional 
fronts will reach the region into early next week as a large upper 
trough takes up residence in the northeast Pacific. The trough will 
likely linger though the end of next week. 


&& 


Short term...radar shows bands of light rain lifting across much of 
western Washington this evening but amounts so far are quite light. The bulk of 
heavier rain is still offshore associated with the brighter cloud 
tops seen on infrared imagery streaming NE toward our area. The surface 
low/upper level features are becoming better organized and more 
vertically aligned as it begins to accelerate NE just inside 130 west 
off the southern Oregon coast/far northern California coast. This appears to be in 
line with model predictions which deepen the low to roughly 990 mb 
tonight as it lifts rapidly north-northeastward to just off the North Washington coast by 
around midday Saturday. The WRF-GFS/NAM-12 are similar in showing a 
deeper and more compact low closer to the Washington coast compared to 
global models which are a little broader and further offshore with 
the low track. Given the compact nature of the low...the mesoscale models 
should perform bettern in this senario. The pdx-bli gradient on mesoscale 
models peak near +9 to +10 mb around 18z Saturday. This supports the 
Wind Advisory currently in effect for the western Washington lowlands for SW 
winds 20-30 miles per hour west/ gusts to 45 miles per hour...except higher gusts near the 
coast and north interior. 


Heavy rain will also fall with this storm. The warm frontal wave 
will bring the initial burst of steady rain...locally heavy...during 
the morning hours. A lull in rain may occur as winds pick up in the 
afternoon...then another bout of heavier rain moves in during the 
evening with the cold front. Widespread rain amounts of 1-2 inches 
with locally 2-3 inches coast and mountains seems reasonable given 
the tropical moisture being entrained into the system. Localized 
Urban and Small Stream flooding could become an issue and will need 
to be monitored. 


Rain tapers to showers by Sunday morning with a cool air mass in 
place over the region. A trough will remain settled over the region 
into early next week with continued unsettled weather and below 
average temperatures. Mercer 








Long term...from previous discussion...cool unsettled conditions 
will persist over the area with an upper level trough over the 
region through the week. Shortwave troughs moving through the broad 
regional trough reinforce the cool showery air mass on about Wednesday and 
again around Friday night and Sat. Below normal temperatures and above 
normal precipitation is likely with showers and a few partly sunny periods. 


&& 


Aviation...middle level deck over western Washington this evening with 
ceilings near 10000 feet. Ceilings lowering down to 2000-3000 feet 
Saturday morning with rain as a strong front approaches the area. 
The ceilings will improve somewhat back to low end of VFR behind the 
front in the afternoon hours. The trailing cold front will arrive 
Saturday evening with ceilings possibly lowering back down into 
MVFR. Southerly winds will increase along the coast early in the 
morning with the winds increasing over the interior midday. 
Sustained winds 20 to 25 knots gusting to 35 knots are possible especially 
during the afternoon hours. 


Ksea...ceilings around 10000 feet through 12z lowering down to near 
2000 feet 15z-18z with rain. Slight improvement in the ceilings in 
the afternoon. Light winds tonight becoming east southeast 5-10 
knots Saturday morning. Winds switching to southwest 15-25 knots 
around midday. Felton 


&& 


Marine...light winds this evening. Gradients becoming offshore late 
tonight as a surface low approaches the coastal waters from the 
southwest. A strong front associated with this low will move through 
area waters Saturday bringing gale force southerly winds to the 
coastal waters Saturday morning followed by Admiralty Inlet...the 
east Strait...the northern inland waters...and Puget Sound sound by 
afternoon. In addition...expect a burst of Small Craft Advisory 
easterlies through the West Entrance of the Strait followed by 
southerlies during the afternoon. Winds will ease over the waters 
tonight. A set of weaker frontal waves will move through the waters 
Sunday and again Monday helping to boost winds and seas. These 
systems will not be as strong as saturdays front...but will likely 
bring Small Craft Advisory winds to the coastal waters and possibly 
parts of the inland areas. Felton 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 


Washington...Wind Advisory in effect Saturday for all the western Washington 
lowlands excluding portions of the Strait of Juan Delaware fuca. 


Pz...Gale Warning from 8 am Saturday morning through 8 PM Saturday 
evening for the coastal waters. 


Gale Warning from 11 am Saturday morning through 8 PM Saturday 
evening for the northern inland waters...east 
Strait...Admiralty Inlet...and Puget Sound sound/Hood Canal. 


Small Craft Advisory from 8 am Saturday morning to 5 PM
