NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
808 PM PST Tuesday Feb 9 2016 


Synopsis...moist southwest flow aloft will allow wetter weather to 
return to western Washington Wednesday through the weekend. A weak 
front will bring light rain to the area Wednesday and Wednesday 
night. Rain will increase as a warm front reaches the area 
Thursday...followed by a cold front Thursday night and Friday. An 
upper level trough will produce showers Friday afternoon through 
Saturday. Another warm front will bring rain the rest of the 
weekend. 


&& 


Short term...SW flow aloft is in place over the NE Pacific and West Washington 
this evening. Models are in better agreement this evening regarding 
the initial weak band of precipitation expected to reach the area 
late tonight and Wednesday morning. The previously dry European model (ecmwf) and 
Canadian have both migrated closer to the wetter solution the GFS 
has had the past several model runs. This feature develops out of 
the remnant of a old narrow front just offshore along 127w-128w. The 
GFS shows an east-west oriented 100-110kt jet streak west of the north California coast 
that pivots north tonight through Wednesday morning. Weak frontogenesis 
develops along the old frontal band as the nose of the jet streak 
approaches. The GFS brings a little light rain to the coast around 
or after 12z/4 am Wednesday then spreads it over the interior 
lowlands by late morning. Quantitative precipitation forecast will be low with only a trace to a few 
hundredths of an inch falling. 


SW flow aloft offshore will really begin increasing tonight as the 
jet streak pivots north. It looks like the increasing flow aloft allows 
the trailing frontal band near 42n/136w to catch up with the initial 
front...eventually reaching the Washington coast late Wednesday afternoon. 
This second front should move over the Cascades by 06z/10 PM 
Wednesday. The chance of rain will decreasing Wednesday night behind 
the front. Both systems are weak enough so that probability of precipitation are only in the 
chance range for the interior with likely probability of precipitation on the coast. Quantitative precipitation forecast 
should be pretty light with up to three tenths of an inch on the 
coast and up to a tenth over the interior lowlands. 


Moist SW flow aloft will continue over the NE Pacific and the pacnw 
Thursday and Friday. Models have been fairly consistent...still 
showing a stronger frontal system affecting the area during that 
period. A warm front approaching from the SW will spread rain over 
the area by Thursday afternoon. The GFS and European model (ecmwf) still take the 
strongest part of the warm front over Vancouver Island. The coast 
and Olympics should get a fair amount of rain...with lower 
accumulations over the interior lowlands. Rain will continue 
Thursday night through Friday morning as a cold front pushes slowly 
eastward across the area. Snow levels will be rather high at 5000- 
8000 feet. Kam 


Long term...previous discussion from the 3 PM afd...an upper trough 
moves through the area on Saturday so this day will be showery. 
Another system arrives from the west on Sunday with rain likely 
through Monday morning. Models diverge after that with the GFS 
sending subsequent systems north and the Euro still aiming them at 
western Washington. Have kept probability of precipitation mainly in the chance category 
Monday and Tuesday. The snow level will fall to around 3000 feet 
over the weekend then rise to 7000 feet or so early next week. Burke 


&& 


Hydrology...river flooding is unlikely through Saturday. There is 
some potential for heavy rains over the Olympics beginning Sunday 
which could cause the flood prone skokomish to reach flood stage 
early next week. 


&& 


Aviation...SW flow aloft with increasing moisture from a series of 
weak fronts. There will be rain at times on the coast but low level 
offshore flow should dry up most of the rain for the interior of 
western Washington on Wednesday...with just some sprinkles. 


Ksea...current taf looks fine with middle and high clouds slowly 
dropping into a typical cloudy day Tuesday with a chance of rain 
in the afternoon. 


&& 


Marine...a weak warm front will brush mainly the coastal waters on 
Wednesday. This front will give areas of Small Craft Advisory south to 
southeast winds to portions of the coastal waters later Wednesday. 
Another frontal system will stall just offshore Thursday and Friday...moving 
inland Sat. 




&& 


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