NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
920 am PST Monday Dec 22 2014 


Synopsis...a weak upper level ridge will move east across western 
Washington today giving dry conditions with occasional middle and high 
clouds. A frontal system will spread light rain into the area 
tonight and rain will increase Tuesday and Tuesday night as the 
front moves slowly eastward. An upper level trough will keep the 
rain going on Wednesday along with cooler conditions. Drier 
northwest flow aloft will keep the area cool on Christmas day with 
only a chance of showers early in the day. Additional systems will 
move southeast into the area Thursday night through Saturday. 


&& 


Short term...a broad long wave ridge is along 135w this morning 
with a trough over the Great Plains. While models seem to have a 
feel for the approximate timing of short wave features moving over 
the ridge now through the upcoming weekend...they appear to be 
having problems with the details concerning possible block 
development offshore and its strength and placement. Problems with 
the details of The Block development are a function of model 
differences...both model-to-model and run-to-run...in the strength 
of development of low pressure north of Hawaii and handling of deep 
low development in the western Bering Sea. While these problems 
effect mainly the long range portion of the forecast...some of these 
problems creep into the forecast as early as Wednesday morning. 
Expect the forecast over the next couple of days to be 
challenging...low skill...and dependent on details that cannot be 
resolved well at this point. 


For today...flat high pressure aloft will move across the area. The 
ridge is rather dirty...so while it will be dry...there will be 
plenty of middle and high clouds moving across the area. Temperatures 
are already in the middle 40s at many locations...so will update the 
forecasts for high temperatures a couple degrees warmer than current 
values. 


Precipitation associated with a warm front that sits from off the S 
coast of Oregon to a low near 48n 145w will reach the coast tonight. 
Then precipitation will increase Tuesday and Tuesday night as the 
cold front portion of the system moves through. This front has some 
tapping to convection south along the inter-tropical convergence zone south of Hawaii. 
Precipitation on Tuesday will briefly become moderate to somewhat 
heavy as freezing levels rise to around 8000 feet...but the system 
is expected to be progressive enough to keep precipitation from 
becoming heavy enough to cause flooding concerns at this time. Will 
be closely evaluating incoming guidance to see if precipitation may 
be a bit heavier and thinking may need to be changed. 


The nam12 and European model (ecmwf) both cool the air mass significantly behind the 
front late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning as precipitation 
continues to fall behind the front. Snow levels fall to around 1800 
feet by Wednesday morning. That combined with moderate precipitation 
rates appear to cause the higher terrain southeast of the 
Seattle-Tacoma-Olympia metropolitan area...places like out toward 
Enumclaw...Orting...and Yelm to get close to the snow level. At this 
time both mesoscale models and the European model (ecmwf) keep snow levels just high 
enough to limit any accumulations that occur to the Cascade zones. 
This will need to be monitored. Behind that front...an upper trough 
crosses the area later Christmas even and gives showers in northwesterly flow 
-along with possible convergence zone activity on Christmas morning. 
Temperatures are marginal...but there is a chance that snow levels 
in heavier showers and convergence zone activity...if it 
occurs...could result in some surprise snowflakes for Christmas 
morning in portions of the east Puget Sound sound lowlands and around the 
Everett area. This will not be something to hold your breath for 
though. Albrecht 


Long term...the 12z GFS brings a weak short wave trough down from 
the northwest Christmas night and this is followed by a stronger 
short wave trough on Friday night. The first will only bring a 
chance of light precipitation...but the second may give the 
mountains some much needed snowfall. Behind Friday nights 
trough...the GFS builds a ridge along 140w that promises cool and 
dry weather for later in the weekend through next week. The 
operational GFS appears to bring cool air in quickly from the north 
while the parallel run is slower and stronger with a potential 
modified Arctic front. This is due to much stronger low development 
north of Hawaii...a less progressive northern stream short wave 
coming from the western Bering Sea...and better resolved terrain 
over south central British Columbia. Will likely need to make some 
pop adjustments for the Thursday night to Friday night period for 
the lead short wave features...then dry things out for later in the 
weekend. The challenge will be temperatures. Will not make changes 
to the extended before looking at the 12z Gem and European model (ecmwf). Albrecht 


&& 


Hydrology...a period of heavier rain and high snow levels on 
Tuesday is expected to be brief enough to not result in flooding 
across western Washington. Flooding is unlikely later Wednesday 
through early next week. Albrecht 


&& 


Aviation...weak high pressure aloft over the Pacific northwest through Tuesday 
morning...flattening during the afternoon and evening. A warm front 
will move into the area tonight...followed by a cold front on 
Tuesday. Air mass somewhat moist and mostly stable. Patchy morning 
MVFR ceilings and patchy fog with visible below 3sm...improving by midday. 
Drier in the lower levels this afternoon. 


Ksea...lower stratus now appears unlikely to affect the terminal 
this morning. VFR through tonight with middle/high clouds more 
dominate. MVFR ceilings may develop late tonight/Tuesday morning as rain 
increases along a cold front. 


&& 


Marine...west swell 10-13 feet will continue over the coastal 
waters. Winds generally less than 20 knots with higher pressure at the 
surface over the waters. 


A warm front will lift north across the area tonight...bringing Small 
Craft Advisory winds to most areas except Puget Sound sound. A trailing 
trough or surface low will affect the waters Tuesday into Wednesday. 
Onshore flow strengthens behind the front Tuesday night and 
Wednesday with stronger westerlies in the Strait and southwesterly winds over 
Puget Sound sound possibly reaching small craft. 


Some of the higher astronomical high tides of the year will be 
occurring this week along with slight tidal anomalies due to passing 
weather systems. It looks like minor tidal overflow is possible for 
some locations around Puget Sound sound early Tuesday morning with a 
better chance early Wednesday morning. Dtm 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas coastal waters and 
West Entrance Strait of Juan Delaware fuca. 
Small craft for winds coastal waters and West Entrance to the 
Strait this evening through Tuesday. 
Small Craft Advisory for Admiralty Inlet...the East Entrance to 
the Strait...and north inland waters from late this evening 
through Tuesday afternoon. 
Small Craft Advisory for rough bar Grays Harbor bar.
