NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
320 am PST Friday Jan 30 2015 


Synopsis...an upper ridge will provide dry and mild weather through 
Saturday. A couple of systems will bring rain back to the area 
Sunday and Monday. 


&& 


Short term...satellite imagery shows upper level ridge over the 
area with some high clouds over the northern portion of the area and 
some fog mostly concentrated over the southwest interior. 
Temperatures were in the 30s and lower 40s at 3 am/11z. 


Little change in the forecast this morning with the upper level 
ridge remaining over the area today. Low level moisture layer is 
shallow which will lead to a morning breakout in the locations were 
fog formed. For the remainder of the area sunny skies. Surface 
gradients are light offshore this morning and this pattern will 
continue this afternoon. This will push high temperatures a few 
degrees above normal today with 50s common. 


Weak shortwave moving over the top of the ridge to the north of the 
area tonight with the ridge axis retrograding back to near 130w. 
Surface gradients remaining light offshore and with the mostly clear 
skies temperatures will drop into the 30s in most locations with the 
colder spots near or just below freezing. Offshore gradients will 
not be strong enough to prevent patchy fog from forming again 
overnight especially in the southwest interior. 


Another sunny day in store for Saturday with the upper level ridge 
axis offshore Saturday morning approaching the coast by late 
Saturday afternoon. Tail end of a warm front moving into the 
northern portion of Vancouver Island while the trailing cold front 
still west of 130w by 00z Sunday. Surface pressures lowering a bit 
offshore which will increase the low level offshore flow over the 
area. With the increasing offshore flow have added a couple of 
degrees to the high temperatures Saturday versus fridays readings. 
This will push the warmest locations...like the north coast...into 
the lower 60s. For the remainder of the area 50s will be common. 


Upper level ridge moving inland Saturday night with the approaching 
cold front inside 130w by 12z Sunday on the GFS and NAM while the 
European model (ecmwf) is a little slower with the front still out around 130w. Rain 
out ahead of the front just starting to reach western Washington on 
the faster model solutions by 12z so will stay with a chance of rain 
after midnight Saturday night. Lows with the increasing cloud cover 
will be warmer than the previous two nights...in the middle 30s to 
lower 40s. 


Even with the differences in the timing all of the models have rain 
spreading over western Washington on Sunday. The faster NAM/GFS 
solution has the front at least into the Cascades by 00z Monday 
while the slower European model (ecmwf) still has the front offshore at 00z Monday. 
All of the models do not have a lot of quantitative precipitation forecast with the system with 
rainfall amounts over The Lowlands between a tenth and a quarter of 
an inch. Highs will be cooler...back to near normal around 50 
degrees. 


Long term...some differences in the models early on in the extended 
with the different timing of the cold front Sunday into Sunday 
night. Both the GFS and the European model (ecmwf) agree that another fast moving 
system will be on the heels of the cold front and move into western 
Washington on Monday keeping rain in the forecast. Beyond Monday 
forecast confidence is low with the extended models showing little 
run to run consistency. The European model (ecmwf) which on the 00z run last night 
was bringing a warm front inland to the north of the area now has 
the precipitation aimed at Oregon with a weak trough approaching Vancouver 
Island and northwesterly flow aloft over western Washington on 
Tuesday. The GFS also has the precipitation going into Oregon with a 
little bit more ridge off the coast versus the European model (ecmwf). There is a 
general agreement with a weak ridge over the area on Wednesday 
followed by a weakening warm front moving up from the south on 
Thursday. The GFS ensemble solutions are much more consolidated on 
the 00z run tonight versus the previous runs. Even with this would 
like to see a couple more runs with this solution before going with 
a drier forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday. At this point will stay 
with the climatology chance probability of precipitation. Chance probability of precipitation continuing on Thursday 
with the possible warm front moving into the area. Felton 


&& 


Hydrology...flooding is not expected for the next 7 days. 


&& 


Aviation...a broad somewhat flat upper level ridge will remain over 
the pacnw today and tonight. A surface high centered over East Washington will 
maintain weak low level offshore flow. The air mass remains dry and 
stable with only local surface moisture in the form of fog and 
stratus. 


The ridge and dry air mass will keep skies mostly clear today. Areas 
of fog are forming over the SW interior an S Puget Sound sound with patchy 
fog elsewhere. The more persistent fog/stratus over the S part 
should clear by midday with patchy fog elsewhere clearing a little 
earlier. 


Ksea...good VFR conditions are still expected today. Weak mixing 
from north winds seems to have held the fog at Bay...but the north wind is 
weakening so there is still a small chance that some brief fog will 
form 12z-16z. Surface winds will remain north-NE 1-4 knots this morning and 
3-6 knots this afternoon. Kam 


&& 


Marine...a surface ridge centered over eastern Washington will 
maintain weak offshore flow through Saturday. Pressure gradients 
across western Washington will remain weak...producing north to NE winds 
along the coast and through Puget Sound sound...and mainly easterly winds 
through the Strait. 


Models have been consistent the past few runs in bringing a weak 
front across the area Sunday. Model solutions for the surface winds 
are pretty close...but some solutions keep winds below Small Craft Advisory levels 
while others Show Low end Small Craft Advisory winds. 


Models are still having trouble with the next front on Monday. European model (ecmwf) 
has trended weaker over the past 3 runs while the GFS has trended a 
little stronger. The GFS now has the Post-frontal west flow a little 
stronger than the European model (ecmwf)...although both are in the Small Craft Advisory range. The 
00z European model (ecmwf) shows a small 1009 mb surface low forming briefly just 
before it moves inland across Cape Flattery. The 00z GFS has a 1005 
mb low. Kam

Washington...none. 
Pz...none.
