NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...correction 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
900 PM PST Thursday Nov 20 2014 


Correction to watch/warning/advisory section below. 


Synopsis...a Pacific storm will impact the region on Friday and 
Friday night with locally heavy rain and gusty winds...along with 
decent snowfall in the Cascades from Stevens Pass northward. The 
weather pattern will remain wet and unsettled this weekend with 
another weather system impacting the area on Sunday. Much 
uncertainty exists in the forecast from Monday Onward. 


&& 


Short term...showers are winding down across western Washington this 
evening...mainly affecting the north Cascades. Skies will remain 
cloudy overnight with lows in the 40s. Current forecast is on track. 


A strong Pacific frontal system will bring Rain...Mountain snow and 
locally windy conditions as it move inland Friday and Friday night. Wind 
advisories are in effect for the coast...San Juans and western 
Whatcom. Rain will reach the coast Friday morning...then spread inland 
by the afternoon. The coast may see 1-2 inches of rain...with 0.5 to 
1 inch in the interior. Snow levels will hover around 4000 feet with 
snow expected at Stevens Pass and Washington Pass...with up to 6 
inches of snow possible through Friday night. Snoqualmie Pass should 
see rain. A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the Cascades 
from King County north over 4000 feet. Showers will taper down late 
Friday night as this system exits. 


Moist onshore flow continues on Sat for additional showers across 
the area...with more snow in the mountains. May see a Puget Sound sound 
convergence zone develop Sat afternoon. 


Another strong Pacific front will bring more rain and mountain snow 
on Sunday. 33 


Long term...previous discussion...Monday through Wednesday...both 
the GFS and European model (ecmwf) show moisture being transported to the Pacific northwest 
via the jet stream...however the GFS has the moisture hitting SW British Columbia 
for the most part and US staying dry...whereas the European model (ecmwf) has a 
wetter solution for US with the moisture hitting US directly. 
Therefore much uncertainty exists in the forecast. Thursday looks 
dry with a ridge building in on both models...but it is too early to 
tell with much certainty. Jsmith 


&& 


Hydrology...river flooding is not expected the next 7 days. 


&& 


Aviation...westerly flow aloft will increase tonight as a strong 
frontal system approaches the coast. The air mass is moist and 
stable except for isolated showers north part. Rain from the 
approaching front will spread inland around 15z. Frontal passage on the coast 
should be around 00z...and over Puget Sound sound around 04z. At the 
surface strong gusty southeast winds will develop along the coast 
and over parts of the north interior on Friday. 


Ceilings this evening are generally VFR 4k-6k feet. Local fog with 
visibilities 1/2sm are possible tonight. By Friday morning most 
ceilings will fall to MVFR 2k-3k feet in rain. 


Ksea...discussion above applies except fog is unlikely tonight. 
Winds southeast 4-8 knots. Rain and MVFR conditions will predominate on 
Friday. Winds will rise to southerly 8-12 knots in the afternoon. Chb 


&& 


Marine...a strong frontal system will move through the area Friday. 
Models show gales over the coastal waters starting Friday afternoon 
and over the East Entrance and north inland waters Friday afternoon 
and evening. Small Craft Advisory winds are expected over the rest 
of the waters. Frontal passage along the coast should be around 00z...then 
around 04z over Puget Sound sound. A westerly push behind the front should 
produce Small Craft Advisory west winds through the Strait and over 
the northern inland waters. 


Westerly flow aloft over the northeast Pacific Saturday through 
Monday will bring several weaker surface troughs across the area. 
Confidence in the timing and strength of each of these troughs is 
low...but they could produce solid advisory level winds and perhaps 
spotty gales. Swells in the 15-20 foot range are forecast to reach 
the coast Sunday. Chb 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...Winter Weather Advisory Cascades from King to Whatcom counties. 
Wind Advisory north and central coast...the San Juan 
Islands...and western Whatcom County. 
Pz...Gale Warning coast...East Entrance...north inland waters. 
Small Craft Advisory all remaining waters. 
Small Craft Advisory for rough Grays Harbor bar.
