NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
300 PM PDT sun Mar 29 2015 


Synopsis...a stalled warm front will bring rain at times to northern 
parts of western Washington through Monday. The associated cold front 
will bring widespread rain to the area Monday night. An upper level 
trough will settle over the Pacific northwest Tuesday and Wednesday 
providing cool and showery weather. Showers will decrease 
Thursday...then rain develops Friday as the next trough moves over the 
region. Unsettled weather will continue into the weekend. 


&& 


Short term...warm advection rain continues late this afternoon from 
the north coast/olympic peninsula across the north interior. Over a half inch 
of rain fell the past 12 hours on the north coast and around a quarter inch 
at a few other spots toward the Canadian border. Radar and observation show 
light rain briefly extending S into Hoquiam but is not making much 
progress inland. Mesoscale models are mostly keeping the interior dry from 
around Everett southward tonight. However...the latest hrrr does show some 
spotty light quantitative precipitation forecast just north of Seattle so the forecast was tweaked a bit to 
throw in some low probability of precipitation for the Everett/Bremerton/and east Puget Sound lowland 
zones for this evening. Sprinkles are possible further S this evening 
but nothing measurable is expected. 


Models deepen the associated surface low offshore to about 1000 mb as 
it tracks into S/central b.C. Monday afternoon. Once the low moves 
inland...the trailing front and upper trough will move into the region. 
The GFS/ECMWF/and mesoscale models all show widespread rain with the front 
Monday night. A cooler and unstable air mass will follow the front with 
rapidly lowering snow levels later Monday night into Tuesday. Snow 
levels will start off close to 7000 feet but will fall to roughly 3000 
feet by Tuesday morning. A few inches of snow are possible through 
Tuesday morning...mainly at the higher passes and ski resorts. Quantitative precipitation forecast off 
the NAM-12 and GFS imply mostly sub advisory amounts of snow. Locally 
higher amounts of snow could fall in the Cascades of Snohomish/King 
County if a Puget Sound sound convergence zone develops. This would mainly 
affect Stevens Pass if the latest mesoscale models are correct. Will need to 
keep a watch on this feature Tuesday. 


Showers linger into Wednesday as additional upper level energy drives 
southeast through the region. The GFS shows a -34c cold pool at 500 mb 
settling over the area and lifted indice's go negative both Tuesday and Wednesday 
afternoon. This looks like the typical Spring pattern with showers and 
isolated afternoon thunderstorms. High temperatures will be much 
cooler...only in the low to middle 50s. 


Long term...the GFS/European model (ecmwf) are coming into better agreement showing a 
short wave ridge on Thursday...the another trough arriving Friday. 
There could still be some weak diurnal shower activity Thursday and the 
GFS does keep some spotty light quantitative precipitation forecast around. Left a chance of showers in 
the forecast for now but probability of precipitation might need to be pulled if models 
continue with the ridge solution. 


A front brings rain into western Washington on Friday...then a trough 
moves into the region over the weekend. It will be cool and unsettled 
with showers across the area. Snow levels will be low at around 3000 
feet but the showery pattern is probably not conducive for much snow 
accumulation. Mercer 


&& 


Hydrology...flooding is unlikely over the next 7 days. 


&& 


Aviation...a broad flat upper level ridge over the Pacific northwest 
will maintain fairly moist westerly flow aloft over West Washington through Monday 
morning. A nearly stationary front is draped across southern b.C. And 
extends SW from Vancouver Island across the offshore waters. The front 
will continue to bring a little light rain at times across the far north 
part of West Washington...from the north coast to kclm to kbli. 


VFR conditions are expected to continue over the interior with ceilings 
generally bkn040-060 with higher overcast layers. Ceilings will probably be a 
little lower over the north interior. MVFR ceilings are expected on the 
coast with areas of IFR conditions over the north coast closer to the 
stationary front. 


A cold front will approach the area Monday...crossing the coast late 
Monday afternoon and the interior Monday evening. 


Ksea...VFR conditions are expected to continue through tonight with 
cloud layers generally scattered-bkn050-060 bkn-ovc080-100. Surface winds 
will remain southerly 5-10 knots. Kam 


&& 


Marine...a small weak surface ridge will remain over western 
Washington through Monday morning. Lower pressure will continue over 
British Columbia and the waters offshore where a baroclinic zone 
extends southwestward from Vancouver Island. This pattern will 
result in moderate S flow across the coastal waters through tonight. 


S flow over the inland waters this afternoon is taking its Sweet 
time weakening. Observed winds are trending weaker...and the 20z 
hrrr drops the winds below Small Craft Advisory at 3 PM...but the winds are still 
trying hard not to cooperate. I will extend the inland waters Small Craft Advisory to 
5 PM to cover any non-cooperative stragglers. Otherwise the inland 
waters winds should remain below advisory criteria tonight. 


An approaching cold front will increase winds back to advisory 
levels Monday morning. The cold front is expected to cross the coast 
late Monday afternoon and the inland waters Monday evening. Moderate 
to strong westerly onshore flow will develop over West Washington Monday night 
behind the cold front. Gale force winds are likely in the central 
and east Strait of Juan Delaware fuca Monday night and Tuesday...with 
advisory winds over the waters adjacent to the Strait. 


There will be a westerly swell of 10 to 12 feet over the coastal 
waters through Tuesday and over the outer waters into Wednesday. Bar 
conditions will be rough as well. 


Weaker onshore flow will continue through mid-week...but will be 
just strong enough to rise to advisory levels in the central and 
east Strait Tuesday night and Wednesday night. Kam 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory all waters except the central Strait. 
Small Craft Advisory Grays Harbor for rough bar. 
Gale watch for Monday night and Tuesday central Strait and 
East Entrance Strait.
