NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
910 am PDT Friday Apr 18 2014 


Synopsis...isolated showers...mainly in the mountains and along the 
coast...will come to an end midday. Drier weather is expected 
this afternoon through tonight as weak high pressure moves across 
the area. A cold front will move across the area Saturday giving 
another shot of rain to the area. Another front will stall as it 
moves into the coastal waters Sunday into Monday. A broad upper 
level trough will bring showery weather to the area Tuesday and 
Wednesday. 


&& 


Short term...the frontal system and upper trough that brought 
precipitation to the area on Thursday and last night is now well 
east of the area. Post frontal onshore flow continues to produce 
isolated showers in the mountains and along the coast. A Puget Sound sound 
convergence zone that was giving some showers from about Stevens 
Pass westward into north King and South Snohomish County earlier 
this morning has pretty much dissipated. Onshore gradients are 
gradually relaxing this morning. Expect conditions to continue to 
dry and improve this afternoon and to remain dry tonight as a ridge 
of high pressure at the surface and aloft moves across the area. 


The next frontal system sits from about 50n 140w southwestward to 
35n 160w with its associated vertically stacked low near 48n 148w. 
Precipitation associated with the front will move onshore during the 
early morning hours then into the Cascades by about noon. Long 
satellite loops show this front having entrained subtropical 
moisture from the western Pacific. This correlates well with model 
forecasts of brief moderate precipitation amounts to the area 
Saturday afternoon and evening. Precipitation amounts from 18z Sat 
through 12z sun could reach 0.75 to nearly 1.0 inches around the 
landslide east of Arlington. The upper trough associated with the 
front will pass across the area late in the afternoon and the GFS 
shows lifted indices falling to below 0c while MOS thunderstorm conditional 
probabilities rise to around 20 percent. At this point will adjust 
probability of precipitation and quantitative precipitation forecast for Saturday but will wait until the full suite of 12z 
guidance comes in before adding a chance of thunderstorms to the forecast 
Sat afternoon and evening. 


Another cold front will reach the coast on Sunday then weaken as 
pivots and becomes north-south orientated offshore. Models keeps the 
interior mainly dry as the front stalls over the coastal waters.. 


An upper level low over the NE Pacific will start to shift inland late 
Monday or Monday night...resulting in scattered showers across the 
region. 


Forecasts will be updated for increased probability of precipitation and quantitative precipitation forecast in the interior 
on Saturday. Albrecht 


Long term...from the previous long term discussion...the air mass 
will remain cool and unstable on Tuesday as an upper level low crosses 
the Pacific northwest. Models continue to show a few showers across western Washington 
over this period. A weak ridge may bring drier weather next 
Wednesday...but then another frontal system is slated to arrive Wednesday 
night or Thursday. Timing of this next system is still unclear in 
the models. Models are showing another cool/showery weather pattern 
next weekend as another upper level trough forms over the Pacific northwest. 33 


&& 


Hydrology...river flooding is unlikely for the next 7 days. 


The exception is the North Fork of the stillaguamish river east of 
the sunrise 530 landslide near Oso where a Flood Warning remains in 
effect until further notice. Flooding continues for this river as a 
result of water pooled behind the debris dam that partially blocks 
the river. 


The North Fork of the stillaguamish near Arlington crested at 7.4 
feet early this morning and is now falling. The river level will 
continue falling today as high pressure moves over the area. A 
front will bring another batch of rain Saturday afternoon and 
evening. This is expected to cause the river to rise about a foot 
Saturday night. The river will begin falling again Sunday and 
continue to fall early next week as drier weather prevails. 


&& 


Aviation...weak upper level ridge offshore moving towards the coast 
this afternoon and inland this evening. Northwesterly flow aloft 
becoming southwesterly Saturday morning. Convergence zone that 
impacted the area earlier this morning has moved over the Cascades. 


Ceilings are expected to lift and clouds scattering out for much of 
western Washington this morning. Some ceilings ranging 2000 to 4000 feet 
will linger near where the convergence zone was through 16-18z this 
morning before an upper level ridge off the coast will work to lift 
ceilings significantly before clouds scatter out for the afternoon. Middle 
level cloud deck out ahead of the next system arriving Saturday 
morning. 


Ksea...clouds will continue to scatter out for the remainder of the 
morning and into the afternoon hours. Southwest wind 6 to 10 knots 
becoming light midday. Winds going northwesterly 4 to 8 knots late 
afternoon and evening hours before becoming northeasterly late 
tonight. Felton/smr 


&& 


Marine...surface high pressure over the waters today will shift 
east tonight. A strong cold front will move through the waters on 
Saturday with Small Craft Advisory winds expected over all of the 
waters. High pressure will rebuild on Sunday. A weaker system will 
arrive later Monday or Monday night. 


A large swell train behind the cold front on Saturday will arrive 
along the Washington coast Saturday night and continue into Sunday. 
Swells in the 16 to 19 foot range are expected. This is a razor clam 
dig weekend for Twin Harbors...copalis and Moclips beaches. 
Felton/smr 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...Flood Warning remains in effect for the North Fork of the 
stillaguamish river east of the sunrise 530 landslide. 


Pz...Small Craft Advisory central and eastern Strait through 
noon. 
Small Craft Advisory coastal waters and West Entrance to 
the Strait for hazardous seas through noon
