NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...corrected 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
359 am PDT Thursday Aug 21 2014 


Corrected typos in the synopsis and long term segments. 


Synopsis...a low pressure system aloft will develop over the region 
during the day today...carving out an upper low over the area 
tonight. This upper low will move into the northern Great Basin late 
Friday. High pressure aloft will then prevail over the region on 
Saturday. 


&& 


Short term... 
the surface onshore pressure gradient was weaker than 24 hours 
ago...so there was not much low clouds over the County Warning Area at this time. 
Expect the low clouds to fill in a bit during the next several 
hours...especially over the southwest interior...before retreating 
to the coastline early this afternoon. 


Meanwhile...an upper trough will dig over the Pacific northwest 
during the day today. The air mass will become weakly unstable in 
the afternoon for a risk of showers over the mountains. Cannot 
rule out an isolated thunderstorm over the north Cascades...near the Canadian 
border...late today...so will need to watch this area. Otherwise... 
maximum temperatures today should be about the same as they were yesterday. 


An upper low will develop over the County Warning Area tonight before moving into 
the northern Great Basin on Friday. The main impact this system will 
have on our weather will be too destabilize the air mass for a 
risk of showers over the interior. Of course...there will be a 
threat of thunderstorms over the Cascades. 


Look for an upper ridge to prevail over the region Friday night and 
Saturday for sunnier and warmer weather. The surface pressure 
gradient will become light offshore or northerly...thus any low 
clouds should be confined to the coast Saturday morning. Less cloud 
cover and a northerly surface pressure gradient will result in 
warmer temperatures Saturday afternoon. 


Long term... 
confidence in this period was not high. The medium range solutions 
were not in very good agreement. For example...the latest European model (ecmwf) 
carved out an 570 dam low right over the County Warning Area on Sunday whereas the 
GFS had the County Warning Area under the influence of an upper trough centered to our 
east. Based on these two solutions...the maximum temperature forecast for 
Sunday is too warm. For now...thought it would be best to leave 
things unchanged. The morning cycle might very well revert to a 
ridge solution for Sunday. 


&& 


Aviation...northwesterly flow aloft becoming westerly today as an 
upper level trough moves into the area. Low level flow will remain 
onshore with persistent high pressure over the offshore waters and 
lower pressure inland. Air mass stable becoming slightly unstable 
this afternoon. 


Fog/stratus satellite imagery shows stratus along the coast through 
the Chehalis gap into the Hood Canal area. Through the Strait the 
stratus has not made it as far as Port Angeles as of 10z. SC deck 
over the Cascades starting to spread back to the west but still 
east of all of the tafs. Onshore surface gradients continue to be 
light with all of the west side gradients a millibar or less at 10z. 


Confidence not very high in the forecast this morning with the light 
gradients. Stratus over the Chehalis valley and the Hood Canal is 
slowly moving east so will go with a tempo broken group for 
kbfi...ksea and kolm between 14z and 17z this morning. For the 
remainder of the tafs will just go with a scattered cloud deck this 
morning. Upper level trough moving over the area this afternoon but 
only high clouds associated with this feature. With the light 
onshore flow continuing throughout the day only expecting a couple 
of hours of breakout along the coast late in the afternoon. 


Ksea...confidence not high enough to completely eliminate stratus 
from the terminal this morning so will go with a tempo broken group 
between 14z and 17z near 2000 feet. Scattered clouds before 14z and 
just high clouds this afternoon into the evening hours. Light winds 
becoming southwest 4 to 8 knots in the afternoon. Felton 


&& 


Marine...the very static onshore flow pattern will continue for the 
next several days. Higher pressure over the offshore waters and 
lower pressure inland will result in varying degrees of onshore flow 
into the early part of next week. The onshore flow is only strong 
enough to produce borderline Small Craft Advisory winds for 
the central and eastern Strait in the evening and early morning 
hours the next few days. Felton 


&& 


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