 Special Statement  Statement as of 4:46 am PDT on July 29, 2015


... Very warm conditions will affect the area Thursday and
continue through into early next week...

A strong ridge of high pressure in the upper atmosphere and
warming aloft will support an extended period of very warm to hot
weather over the area Thursday through the weekend into early
next week.

Temperatures will rise into the upper to mid 90s Thursday over
the interior from Seattle southward into the valleys of the
southwest interior. In these areas... high temperatures will reach
the upper 80s to mid 90s after morning lows only around 60
degrees. Areas near the water north of Seattle to the Canadian
border will be warm... but highs will only reach into the 80s.
Temperatures will remain very warm through the weekend.

Hot weather can place extra stress on the body and possibly lead
to heat exhaustion. In addition... it is easier to become
dehydrated. The interior of automobiles can become very
hot... creating a danger if children or pets are left unattended.

... Hot weather will develop on Thursday and continue through at
least the upcoming weekend...

A strong ridge of high pressure in the upper atmosphere and
warming aloft will combine to bring another period of very warm to
hot weather to the area Thursday through at least the upcoming
weekend. The hot weather may persist into the first half of next
week.

At this time it appears that the warmest temperatures will occur
on Thursday and Friday in the interior from Seattle southward into
the valleys of the southwest interior. In these
areas... high temperatures will reach the upper 80s to mid 90s
after morning lows only around 60 degrees. Areas near the water
north of Seattle to the Canadian border will be warm... but highs
will only reach into the 80s. Temperatures may cool a couple of
degrees over the weekend... but any onshore flow that occurs will
tend to raise humidity values making it feel more uncomfortable.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...corrected short term section 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
900 am PDT Wednesday Jul 29 2015 


Synopsis...an upper ridge will keep dry and very warm conditions 
over the area through the weekend. Warm to hot weather may persist 
into early next week as the upper ridge remains anchored over the 
western US. 


&& 


Short term...the center of a strong and warm upper level ridge over 
the south-central United States will retrograde to The Four-Corners 
region of the Desert Southwest today through Friday while it expands 
across the west. Flow aloft is light onshore while low level flow is 
light north to northwest. 


In this pattern the short term models seem to do a good job in 
developing a weak thermal trough from the Olympics south-southeast 
through the south interior and into the Willamette Valley of Oregon. 
As the surface pattern develops...850 mb temperatures warm to around 
17c this afternoon and to around 20c Thursday through Friday 
afternoons. With the axis of the thermal trough inland...expect the 
coast away from the beaches to get warm...but not hot. Areas near 
the water north of Seattle and in the north interior will be cooled 
by the 10 to 20 knots north to northwest breezes keeping highs in the 
70s to lower 80s. The Seattle metropolitan area southward in the interior 
valleys will warm to the middle 80s to lower 90s today with highest 
temperatures around 00z this afternoon. 


Dewpoint temperatures around 50 degrees along with the breeze will 
keep things from feeling overly oppressive outdoors today. 
Radiational cooling with the drier air will allow temperatures 
tonight to fall into the 50s most areas...while the warmer urban 
heat island areas of Seattle and Tacoma stay close to the 60 degree 
mark tonight. 


With the warmer temperatures aloft on Thursday...expect highs to be 
about 3-4 degrees hotter with most areas from Seattle southward in 
the interior reaching into the lower to middle 90s. Areas away from the 
water near the Cascades north of Seattle will also see hot 
temperatures on Thursday. Nighttime temperatures Thursday night will 
rise 2-3 degrees with the hotter start. With the forecast warmth for 
Thursday and Friday...will likely issue a heat advisory for the 
Seattle-Tacoma urban areas for Thursday through Friday evening with 
the afternoon package today. Friday high temperatures may even be a 
couple degrees hotter than Thursday. 


At this point the current short term forecast appears to be in good 
shape. No update is planned this morning. Albrecht 


Long term...while The Four Corners high remains in place Saturday 
through early next week...upper level heights over the Pacific 
northwest start a downward trend on Saturday. The 06z GFS along with 
the 00z European model (ecmwf) and 00z Canadian have reverted back to cooler 
solutions starting Sunday night as an upper level low pressure 
system west of Juneau shifts southeast toward southwestern British 
Columbia by the middle of next week. Most extended model solutions 
now show gradual cooling Saturday and Sunday followed by rather 
significant onshore flow early next week and even an chance of 
showers by next Wednesday. The current extended forecast follows 
older solutions that allowed the southwestern ridge to dominate the 
circulation over the area. Confidence in the long term forecast is 
rather low today and some changes may need to be made with the 
extended forecast in the afternoon package if the newer 12z 
solutions show a more dominate influence of the northern stream 
upper low on the local wind pattern. Albrecht 


&& 


Climate...on this date back in 2009 the warmest day on record in 
Seattle occurred with a high of 103 degrees. In addition to being 
the warmest day on record July 29th is also the driest day on record 
at Seattle-Tacoma Airport. Since records started in 1945 there has 
been a total of just 0.31 inches of rain recorded on this day. 
Measurable rain has occurred only 4 times ( 0.17 inches 1993, 0.11 
inches 2008, 0.02 inches 1955 and 0.01 inches in 1981 ). Felton 


&& 


Aviation...an upper ridge will remain over the region. Continued westerly 
flow aloft. Low level northerly flow will become northwesterly this afternoon. 
Patchy LIFR ceilings/visibilities on the coast will dissipate by 1800 UTC. 


Ksea...VFR. Winds will remain northerly...possibly gusting to near 20 
knots this afternoon. 


&& 


Marine... 
high pressure offshore with lower pressure east of the Cascades will keep the 
flow onshore or northwesterly through this weekend. There is a 
possibility that wind speeds could reach advisory criterion over 
the Admiralty Inlet and Puget Sound sound this afternoon. 


The flow will become briefly northerly or offshore early Thursday and 
Friday mornings due to a thermally induced area of low pressure trying to 
set up along the Washington coast. 




&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory in effect from 5 PM this afternoon until 
11 PM tonight for the coastal waters from James Island to 
Cape Shoalwater out to 10 nm.
