NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...correction 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
300 PM PDT Friday Jul 3 2015 


Synopsis...sunny days with well above average high temperatures 
will continue into the middle of next week. An upper trough and 
cooler air may arrive toward the end of next week. 


&& 


Short term...rather warm weather will continue through the middle 
of next week. The 4th should be about the same as today in terms of 
temperatures and breezes...but Sunday should be the warmest day as the 
thermal trough shifts out over the coastal waters. There is an upper 
low over Canada and a little upper level cyclonic flow over b.C. And 
Alberta intrudes over Washington this weekend...but it does not have any 
effect on the warm air over western Washington. 


Long term...there will be little change to the weather pattern 
through the middle of next week...the air will remain rather warm 
and marine air will be shallow and mainly confined to the coast. The 
forecast highs were mainly warmed up a notch through Wednesday. The 
upper level low off calif is likely to stay south of our area and 
any instability and chance of showers should only work as far north 
as Oregon at times. For the end of next week and into next weekend a 
cool upper trough may arrive. 


&& 


Aviation...strong high pressure remains offshore while an upper 
level low spins over northern b.C. And Alberta. The flow aloft over 
western Washington is W/NW. The air mass is dry. Skies are clear for VFR 
conditions this evening. However...a weak onshore push will bring 
marine stratus clouds back to the coast overnight. High pressure and 
offshore flow will lead to VFR conditions on Sat. 33 


Ksea...VFR conditions. Light north winds at the surface. 33 


&& 


Marine...strong high pressure remains over the NE Pacific with slightly 
lower pressure inland. The result is light onshore flow across western 
Washington. Models show north/northwest winds of 15 to 25 knots over the outer coastal 
waters - a Small Craft Advisory is in effect. Westerly winds will 
also increase through the central/east Strait of Juan Delaware fuca this 
afternoon and evening and a Small Craft Advisory is in effect as 
well. 


Offshore flow will develop this weekend as a thermal trough of low 
pressure forms along the coast. The flow will flip back to onshore on 
Monday as low pressure shifts inland. 33 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...heat advisory for Seattle...Bellevue...Tacoma...and east Puget Sound 
sound lowlands zones. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory outer coastal waters...central and east 
Strait of Juan Delaware fuca.
