Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
250 am PDT Thursday Sep 18 2014 


Synopsis...an upper level trough will cross western Washington 
today bringing mostly cloudy skies and scattered showers. A second 
weaker upper level trough will follow...prolonging the chance of 
showers through Friday. A strong upper level ridge will build over 
the region Friday night and Saturday...then shift east on Sunday. 
The ridge and low level offshore flow will bring sunny skies and 
high temperatures in the 70s to middle 80s. A series of upper level 
troughs will bring a chance of rain and cooler weather next week. 


&& 


Short term...the moist upper level trough along the coast this 
morning will move over the Cascades by 18z/11 am and to the Idaho 
border by 00z/5 PM this afternoon. Radar imagery indicates the main 
shower activity has shifted over the north interior ahead of the trough 
axis...with diminishing showers along the coast. Although the trough 
will be east of the area this afternoon...the lower air mass will 
become unstable up to about 700 mb/10000 feet this afternoon...so a 
chance of showers will continue. 


This evening should qualify as a minor lull with west flow aloft 
maintaining a chance of mountain showers...but only about a 20 
percent chance of showers over The Lowlands. 


West flow aloft over the NE Pacific will drive the next upper level 
shortwave trough over the region later tonight and on Friday. This 
is the system around 50n and between 130w and 135w at 09z/2 am. This 
system will bring showers to primarily the coast and north interior 
through Friday morning...with shower activity diminishing Friday 
afternoon as the building ridge offshore weakens the system. Models 
have been pretty dry for Friday night so the chance of showers was 
dropped. Clouds will decrease overnight...so with improving 
radiational cooling conditions patchy fog was added to the forecast 
for Saturday morning. 


The models remain on course in building a strong upper level ridge 
offshore Friday night then moving it over West Washington on Saturday. The air 
mass will dry rapidly for sunny skies on Saturday. East-NE low level 
offshore flow will cause a thermally induced surface trough to form 
along the Oregon coast. The surface trough will increase the low 
level north-NE flow through Puget Sound sound Saturday afternoon. This should 
cap maximum temperatures in the 70s around Puget Sound sound. Kam 


Long term...models have been quite consistent with the upper level 
ridge and the thermally induced surface trough. East-NE low level flow 
Saturday night will bring the surface trough up along the Washington coast 
on Sunday. This will be the warmest day with maximum temperatures in the middle 
70s to middle 80s. MOS guidance maximum temperatures seem to be overly cold but 
may get closer to the expected middle 80s maxes as Sunday draws closer. 
Along the coast the east flow will continue into Sunday afternoon...so 
even there maximum temperatures will be in the 70s to lower 80s. 


Models have also been fairly consistent in bringing a weakening 
front and upper level trough to the coast late Monday or Tuesday. 
Timing is still in question...so it is still uncertain just how much 
of Monday will stay mostly sunny. This is an interesting little 
system with an 80-100 knots jet streak and 500 mb vorticity lobe 
vertically stacked over the surface front. Both European model (ecmwf) and GFS show 
the system weakening rapidly Monday evening as it nears the coast. 
The upper level trough and 500 mb vorticity lobe shear off from the 
surface front...probably bringing some showers to the Cascades and East 
Washington Monday night. 1000-850 mb relative humidity forecasts show the surface front 
stalling along the coast Monday night...but the moisture will 
eventually be shoved inland by late Tuesday as another trough 
approaches. Kam 


&& 


Aviation...a weak upper level trough will move through the area 
today with increasing westerly flow aloft tonight. At the surface... 
high pressure will be over the coast with lower pressure inland. Air 
mass moist and unstable. 


Ceilings will gradually lower early this morning as a batch of 
showers moving north through the area moistens the middle and low 
levels. Low clouds are expected to be fairly widespread across the 
area for much of the day with some improvement in the afternoon. 


Ksea...middle clouds early this morning with a batch of showers pushing 
north through the area. Low clouds are expected to develop by 
daybreak and persist through the morning...lifting a bit in the 
afternoon. Southerly wind 4-8 knots. Schneider 


&& 


Marine...weak high pressure will be over the coast through tonight. 
There could be a few hours of Small Craft Advisory west winds in the 
central and east Strait this evening as onshore flow increases a bit 
but this looks pretty marginal. 


A weak front will cross the waters Friday. Offshore flow will 
develop Friday night and continue through Saturday night with a 
trough just offshore. Southerly winds will develop Sunday and 
continue into Monday as a trough approaches from the west. Schneider 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory central and Easter Strait of Juan Delaware fuca.
