Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Public Information Statement  Statement as of 9:40 am PDT on July 29, 2014


... This is the driest and warmest time of the year...

The last 10 days of July and the first 10 days of August are the
driest and warmest time of the year in western Washington. Going
back 121 years when Seattle weather records began in 1893... the
average number of times it has rained on any given day in this 20-
day period is 13 times or only 11 percent in those 121 years.

It has rained but only 9 times in those 121 years on August 4th
making it the day with the lowest chance of rain in the entire year.
Even the best chance of rain on any day during this stretch is on
August 6th when it has rained 19 times... only a 16 percent chance.

Reviewing records at Seattle-Tacoma Airport that started in 1945...
July 29th is the driest day of the year with a total of only 0.31
inches recorded on that day in the 69 years of record.

This time period is also the warmest time of the year. Out of the
187 days with highs of 90 degrees or more at Seattle-Tacoma Airport
through 2013... 69 or 37 percent of those hot high temperatures have
occurred in this 20-day period.

The record for the number of consecutive days with highs 90 degrees
plus in Seattle is 5 - from August 7th through the 11th in 1981. The
record for consecutive days with highs 80 degrees or more is also
mainly in this time window... 15 days from July 30th to August 13th
1981. The day with the best chance of getting a high 80 degrees plus
is July 27th with 29 days out of 69 years or 42 percent.

Regarding the 10 warmest days of the year on average based on
average high temperatures... 8 of them are in this 20-day window. The
remaining two that are outside of the 20-day period are July 21st
and August 12th.

Given this is the driest and warmest time of the year... it is no
coincidence that seafair involves this time of year. OH and today -
July 29th - is when the warmest temperatures ever recorded in many
places around western Washington occurred in 2009. Sea-tac Airport
hit 103 degrees... Olympia 104... Bellingham 96 and Centralia 107
degrees.

NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
900 am PDT Tuesday Jul 29 2014 


Synopsis...high pressure aloft will bring warm sunny days to 
western Washington through early next week at least. Weak onshore 
flow will allow clouds along the coast to intrude through the Strait 
of Juan Delaware fuca and lower Chehalis gap during the late night and 
morning hours. Temperatures across greater Puget Sound sound will remain 
above average through at least Thursday. 


&& 


Short term...dry southwest flow aloft will dominate the pattern 
through Thursday with the upper ridge axis centered well inland over 
the Great Basin and northern rockies. This pattern tends to result in 
varying degrees of mostly weak onshore gradients. Low stratus along 
the coast intruded into the lower Chehalis gap as far as Shelton and 
also down the Strait of Juan Delaware fuca and areas surrounding the East 
Entrance. These clouds will easily burn back to the coast by midday. 
With lack of any real deep marine influence over the interior and 
little change in 500 mb heights or 850 mb temperatures...will stick with 
the current forecast highs which should be similar to yesterday. 
Temperatures today should reach the low to middle 70s along the 
coast...and around the Strait due to marine air. Highs across the 
interior away from the water including the greater Puget Sound sound 
should be in the middle to upper 80s...warmest across the SW interior 
to Tacoma areas. 


The westerly push in the Strait may be a bit stronger this evening 
possibly enough to induce gales. See the marine section below. 500 
mb heights come down just about 20m which is not too significant and 
850 mb temperatures remain fairly constant. Marine air may flood a bit 
further inland toward the north Puget Sound sound and areas surrounding the 
Strait by Wednesday morning. These areas will see more cooling. 
Central and S Puget Sound sound...and the SW interior will probably reach 
the low to middle 80s. 


500 mb heights remain little changed into Thursday and onshore flow 
appears weak. Highs in the upper 60s/low 70s coast and around the 
Strait will continue with warmer highs in the low to middle 80s across 
the interior at spots away from the waters. Beyond Thursday there 
could be some uncertainty in the forecast discussed below. Will 
evaluation the full suite of 12/18z models today and make any 
adjustments if needed to the long range forecast this afternoon. 
Mercer 


Long term...previous 330 am discussion...after a few runs of 
good agreement in the extended models a couple of wrinkles in the 
forecasts this morning. The GFS has changed slightly Friday and over the 
weekend with some weak troughiness over the area. 500 mb heights are 
still high...middle 580s dms so there is still no precipitation 
forecast. The slight change in the flow aloft could result in a 
little stronger onshore flow and slightly cooler temperatures than 
currently forecast. The European model (ecmwf) brings a small low up from the south 
on Saturday with precipitation over the northern portion of the 
area. The Canadian also has this feature although it is much more 
drier than the European model (ecmwf) solution. With these solutions being new to the 
model runs will stay with the more consistent GFS solution which 
keeps the weak onshore flow pattern with temperatures a few degrees 
above normal going into the first part of next week. Felton 


&& 


Climate...today Marks 5 years since the all time record high 
temperature was set at sea-tac was set along with other record 
highs. Seattle(sea-tac) 103...National Weather Service Seattle 105...Centralia 
107...Olympia 104...Elma 104...Everett 100...Bellingham 
96...Aberdeen 95. 


In addition...a total of 0.31 inches of rain has been reported on 
this day since records started at Seattle-Tacoma Airport in 1945 
making this the driest day of the year in terms of total rainfall 
for the day at sea-tac. 


&& 


Aviation...an upper level ridge centered over the intermountain 
west combined with a trough along about 140w will give southwest 
flow aloft through Wednesday. At the surface...a ridge of high 
pressure over the offshore waters combined with lower pressure east 
of the Cascades will give low level onshore flow. The air mass is 
dry and stable...except for a shallow marine layer along the coast. 


At 8 am the shallow marine layer over the coastal waters extends 
inland over the coastal zones and eastward through the Chehalis gap 
to about Shelton. Some fog and very low stratus is also seen 
extending eastward through the Strait of Juan Delaware fuca to northern 
Whidbey Island and the southern San Juan Islands. Where the fog and 
stratus are seen...IFR to LIFR conditions are being observed. Other 
locations are clear. The fog and stratus will rapidly burn back to 
the coastline by about 20z. 


Latest forecast models show onshore gradients increasing rapidly 
late this afternoon as strong heating takes place east of the 
Cascades. The onshore flow will be stronger than last evening and 
will likely result in stratus and fog pushing inland farther than 
this morning. The terminal most likely to be impacted will be 
kpae...but kolm may also get some fog and stratus Wednesday morning. Any 
location getting stratus will likely see IFR to LIFR conditions for 
a few hours Wednesday morning while other areas will remain clear. 
Albrecht 


Ksea...expect clear skies through tonight. Light winds will become 
northwest 6 to 9 knots around 20z then will veer to NE 5-7 knots after 04z this 
evening. Albrecht 


&& 


Marine...a ridge of high pressure over the coastal waters combined 
with lower pressure east of the Cascades will give varying degrees 
of onshore flow through Saturday. The onshore flow is expected to be 
stronger late this afternoon and tonight than it has been over the 
past few days. So...a Gale Warning has been issued for the central 
and East Entrance to the Strait of Juan Delaware fuca from 5 PM this 
afternoon until 5 am Wednesday morning. Small craft advisories have 
been issued for areas adjacent to the Gale Warning area...the West 
Entrance to the Strait...the northern inland waters...and Admiralty 
Inlet. Northwesterly flow over the coastal waters will give Small 
Craft Advisory winds there this afternoon and evening. 


The pattern is expected to change little Wednesday through Sat. Slightly 
weaker onshore pressure gradients will still give Small Craft 
Advisory conditions to the coastal waters and the central and 
eastern Strait of Juan Delaware fuca during the late afternoon and evening 
hours each day. Albrecht 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Gale Warning central Strait of Juan Delaware fuca and East Entrance 
to the Strait 5 PM this afternoon until 5 am Wednesday. 
Small Craft Advisory coastal waters 2 PM this afternoon through 
tonight. 
Small Craft Advisory West Entrance to the Strait of Juan Delaware 
fuca...northern inland waters...and Admiralty Inlet 5 PM this 
afternoon until 5 am Wednesday.
