NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
230 PM PDT Wednesday may 27 2015 


Synopsis...relatively weak low level onshore flow will prevail for 
the next several days...with above normal temperatures and mostly 
sunny days. An upper low will bring showers and cooler weather the 
first part of next week. 


&& 


Short term...weak high pressure aloft will build over western 
Washington tonight and Thursday. At the same time...low level 
onshore flow will weaken a bit and turn more northerly. The upshot 
is areas of morning low clouds then mostly sunny Thursday. Highs 
will be in the 70s to lower 80s inland. 


500 mb heights will fall slightly Friday and Saturday as an upper 
low over British Columbia sags south and then east. This will cause 
low level onshore flow to increase a bit. That said...it does not 
look like these changes will have much affect on the weather. Low 
level moisture will be limited for mostly sunny days after some 
morning low clouds. 850 mb temperatures will remain about the same 
Friday and highs should once again be in the 70s to lower 80s for 
the interior. There will probably be a few degrees of cooling 
Saturday but temperatures will still be above normal. 


There will be enough instability over the Cascades for a chance of 
afternoon and evening showers Thursday and Friday with the best 
chances will be near the crest. Schneider 


Long term...Sunday will be another mostly sunny after some morning 
low clouds. Highs might even warm a little as an upper low 
approaches from the southwest and low level onshore flow eases. 


The aforementioned upper low will move over Oregon on Monday. 
Moisture coming up from the south with this low will bring an 
increasing chance of showers to the area. Highs will cool into the 
60s. The upper low will move inland to the south...close enough to 
keep showers and clouds over the area through Tuesday with highs 
remaining in the 60s. 


Weak high pressure aloft will build over the region on Wednesday. 
This should allow things to dry out and there will probably be some 
sunshine by afternoon. Schneider 


&& 


Aviation...northerly flow aloft. Light onshore flow. Marine stratus 
is along the coast this afternoon but most of it has burned off in 
the interior. Areas of low clouds are likely to develop overnight 
and burn off by midday Thursday. 


Ksea...mostly clear skies tonight and a few hours of morning low 
clouds Thursday. 


&& 


Marine...high pressure is offshore with lower pressure inland. 
Westerly flow in the Strait of Juan Delaware fuca could increase to Small 
Craft Advisory strength by evening. 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...none. 
Pz...none.
