NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
300 am PST sun Mar 1 2015 


Synopsis...an upper ridge and offshore low level flow will bring 
another day of fair weather to western Washington today. A weak 
weather system will move southeast through the area tonight 
for areas of light precipitation. Dry weather will prevail 
the remainder of next week under the influence of an upper 
ridge and low level offshore flow. 


&& 


Short term...northerly flow aloft continues over the Pacific 
northwest early this morning...ahead of a strong upper ridge 
offshore along 140w. A weak system in the northerly flow has brought 
some high clouds to western Washington overnight. The temperatures 
at 2 am ranged from the upper 20s and lower 30s in the valleys of 
the south Puget Sound sound region and south interior to 40 degrees in 
Seattle. 


The upper flow will back to northwest today as a weak upper 
shortwave moves southeast along the coast of British Columbia. It 
will be another dry day for the forecast area. Skies should remain 
mostly sunny for much of the area with only some high clouds...but 
the coast will probably have mostly cloudy skies this afternoon. 


The shortwave will dig across western Washington tonight. It will 
produce a little precipitation at the coast...with a chance of 
precipitation inland mainly after midnight. Precipitation amounts 
will be light. Even the coast and Olympic Mountains will get only up 
to 0.25 inch...with just a few hundredths in the interior and some 
areas remaining dry. The snow level will be around 2500 feet. 


After some spotty light showers Monday morning...dry northerly flow 
will develop over the region once again and continue through 
Tuesday. A surface high will move south through southwest Canada 
too...producing northerly offshore flow late Monday and Monday 
night. The north interior of western Washington will have windy 
conditions due to its proximity to the mouth of the Fraser River. 
Mcdonnal 


Long term...northerly flow aloft and dry weather will continue 
Wednesday...as the upper ridge weakens and moves to the Pacific 
northwest coast. The ridge will move inland Wednesday night and 
Thursday...with west or northwest flow aloft over western Washington 
in its wake. 


A weak upper shortwave could bring some light precipitation to parts 
of the forecast area Thursday and Thursday night...and the most 
recent runs of the GFS and Canadian models show this. However 
the European model (ecmwf) and earlier runs of the other models indicated dry 
weather. I will stand pattern with the dry forecast for now...and 
hopefully the model runs today will help US pin this down. 


Another upper ridge will build offshore Friday and Saturday for more 
dry weather. Mcdonnal 


&& 


Hydrology...flooding is unlikely for the next 7 days. 


&& 


Aviation...dry northerly flow will prevail today. VFR conditions 
expected with just scattered-broken high clouds. A cold front will track 
south through western Washington tonight for increasing clouds and light 
rain mainly along the coast. MVFR ceilings are likely overnight with 
skies clearing Monday afternoon. 33 


Ksea...VFR conditions today. Light southerly winds at the surface. 33 


&& 


Marine...weak low pressure will cross the region today for mainly light 
winds. A cold front will move south through the waters tonight with 
brief northwest winds of 15 to 25 knots over the coastal waters...small craft 
advisories Arkansas likely. North to NE flow will develop Monday night 
into Tuesday as high pressure builds over interior b.C. The northern 
inland waters may see gales with Fraser River outflow. Winds will 
ease Tuesday night. Weak high pressure will bring generally light 
winds over the waters on Wednesday. 33 


&& 


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