NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
900 PM PST Wednesday Dec 17 2014 


Synopsis...a weak upper trough will move east of the Cascades late 
tonight. The next frontal system will bring rainy and locally windy 
weather to western Washington later Thursday and Thursday night... 
with showers decreasing Friday. Windy rainy weather will continue 
this weekend as a vigorous frontal system moves through the Pacific 
northwest. Somewhat drier weather is likely early next week. 


&& 


Short term...a weak upper trough is moving across western 
Washington this evening. Areas of light rain continue across the 
area...especially in the Puget Sound sound region. The upper trough will 
move east of the Cascades late tonight...and a small upper ridge 
will move into the offshore waters. Then the ridge will progress 
inland quickly on Thursday...moving into eastern Washington by late 
afternoon. 


A Pacific frontal system will start spreading rain into western 
Washington Thursday...probably just behind the upper ridge 
axis...with precipitation continuing Thursday night as the system 
moves inland. The upper trough following the cold front will move 
through western Washington on Friday. This is not an especially 
strong front for December...but it will bring steady rain and 
locally windy conditions to the coast and north interior. 


Storm total precipitation for the 36 hour period ending Friday 
afternoon should be 0.75 to 1.5 inches over most of the mountains... 
with up to 1 inch at the coast...and 0.25 to 0.75 over most of the 
interior lowlands. Then snow level will rise to 4000 to 5000 feet 
Thursday night...then fall to around 3500 feet Friday. Storm total 
snowfall at the higher passes and ski resorts should amount to 3 to 
8 inches or so. 


A vigorous frontal system will move quickly into western Washington 
late Friday night and Saturday. It will bring another round of 
locally windy conditions...steady rain to the western Washington 
lowlands...and rain and snow to the mountains with somewhat higher 
snow levels. Mcdonnal 


Long term...here is the long term section from the afternoon 
forecast discussion -- models now show a break or at least decrease 
in rainfall rates Sunday night as weak high pressure temporarily 
builds offshore. The ridge will lift the flow northward so moisture 
directed into southern Washington/Oregon will lift back over western Washington on Monday. 
The ridging is quite a bit stronger on most of today's model runs 
which would shut off precipitation by late Monday or Monday night. 
The good news is that if heavy rain does develop it appears there 
will be some shifting between the Cascades of western Washington/western Oregon. 
This should limit potential quantitative precipitation forecast in any one particular area. Models 
now show 24 to 36 hour quantitative precipitation forecast amounts of 4 to 6 inches more evenly 
distributed along the Washington/Oregon Cascades. This is still enough for 
some minor flooding on the more prone rivers so forecasts should be 
monitored closely. 


Another surface low will track into western Washington or northern Oregon around 
Tuesday. Models no longer tap this low for a continuous moisture 
stream which instead arrives after a break in rainfall. Models are 
also trending much weaker with this low so additional rain amounts 
look to be light and not hydrologically significant. 


Long range models are indicating a possible pattern change by the 
middle of next week. However...models differ on the positioning of a 
high over Kona low pattern over the Pacific which will determine the 
strength of northerly flow over western Washington. The 12/18z GFS is further east with 
the low and dumps most the cold air into The Rockies. Colder air 
would arrive across western Washington if the European model (ecmwf) solution verified with the 
low further west. Either way...a transition to cooler temperatures is 
likely enough to trend high/low temperatures downward a bit for Wednesday. 
Mercer 


&& 


Hydrology...river flooding is not expected through Saturday. A 
moist westerly flow pattern will develop Saturday night and continue 
through Sunday night with heavy rain at times in the mountains. The 
latest 12z GFS/European model (ecmwf) are faster with the trailing frontal band and 
pushes it southward into Oregon by Monday. This could help mitigate any 
river flooding that develops but does not end the threat as models 
have not all settled on a particular solution. 24 to 36 hour rain 
amounts are still averaging about 4 to 5 inches over the Washington Cascades 
which could cause flooding on prone rivers. At this time...primary 
concern for any river rising above flood stage is the skokomish but 
also need to keep an eye on other Cascade flood prone streams. Mercer 


&& 


Aviation...a weak upper level trough is over western Washington 
this evening with light westerly flow aloft. The air mass is moist 
and stable with weak surface gradients. A cold front about 650 nm 
west of Seattle at 04z will push into the region Thursday evening 
with strong southwest flow aloft. 


Areas of light rain will persist across western Washington overnight 
with widespread MVFR ceilings and localized IFR. Some temporary 
improvement to VFR is possible midday Thursday as a transitory upper 
ridge moves over the area and surface gradients become increasingly 
offshore. Widespread rain will spread back into the area by early 
evening ahead of the next front with ceilings falling back to MVFR. 


Ksea...MVFR through the night with light rain at times. VFR ceilings 
at or above 5k feet possible 18z-00z but will drop again with more 
rain Thursday evening. Light south-southeast wind 
overnight...becoming southeast 7 to 12 knots Thursday afternoon. 


&& 


Marine...a weak trough lies over the waters this evening for light 
winds. A strong front associated with a 970-975 mb low west of 
haida gwaii will move through the offshore waters on Thursday...then 
inland Thursday night. A period of gale force winds can be expected 
over the coastal waters Thursday afternoon through Thursday night 
with Small Craft Advisory conditions for the Strait 
entrances...northern inland waters...and Admiralty Inlet. Long 
period swell near 22 feet are still expected on the coast late 
Friday afternoon and Friday night. Tidal anomalies along the coast 
are just over 1 foot above normal and high tide occurs Saturday 
morning. If swell remains high into Saturday morning 
as currently expected...some coastal flooding is possible. Another 
strong front will arrive on Saturday with gale force winds once 
again likely over the coastal waters...the northern inland 
waters...and the Strait entrances. 27
