NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
300 PM PDT Wednesday Aug 27 2014 


Synopsis...the marine layer will deepen tonight and a small upper 
trough will move through area Thursday for cloudier cooler weather. 
Another larger upper trough will bring a chance of showers Friday 
through this weekend. Monday night and Tuesday could see brief 
improvement before another upper trough moves through towards the 
middle of next week. 


&& 


Short term...moderate onshore flow at the surface will bring a 
thicker marine layer inland tonight. The thickness of the marine 
layer will bring areas of drizzle to the coast towards the 
morning...and there will likely also be patchy fog on the coast. I 
have kept the drizzle out of the interior in the forecast. 


Thursday...a shortwave trough moving over the region and its 
associated surface front will keep conditions much cooler...5 to 10 
degrees cooler than they have been. I expect that we will only 
partially break out of the marine layer late in the day. I have 
added a chance of afternoon showers to the Olympics based on recent 
high resolution model trends...and there is a slight chance of 
showers for the north Cascades as well. 


Friday a large upper level trough will approach the area. The marine 
layer will keep the low levels moist. Both the nam12 and the uw 
wrfgfs 4km are hinting at a Puget Sound sound convergence zone forming 
Friday morning...and I have included a slight chance of showers in 
the Puget Sound sound convergence zone area for the morning. Later in the 
day on Friday the upper trough will begin moving through the 
area...and I have kept a widespread chance of showers in the 
forecast through Saturday. Jsmith 


Long term...showers will begin to taper off Saturday night into 
Sunday...but a series of small disturbances moving through the area 
means that the threat of showers...mostly confined to the 
mountains...will continue through Monday. In the most recent 
runs...the European model (ecmwf) and GFS are both agreeing that there will be a 
brief lull in the showers and possibly partly sunny skies Monday 
night into Tuesday. However...they also suggest that another system 
will move into the area Tuesday night or Wednesday...bringing 
possible widespread showers. Jsmith 


&& 


Aviation...westerly flow aloft with weak upper level ridge over the 
area moving east tonight. Weak upper level trough reaching the coast 
Thursday morning moving east of the Cascades Thursday afternoon. Low 
level onshore flow pattern continuing through Thursday. 


Satellite imagery shows stratus along the coast almost completely 
dissipated at 22z/3pm. Onshore gradients increasing with the peak 
heating of the day with kuil-kbli and khqm-ksea both near 1.5 mb. 
Increasing onshore flow overnight and the approaching upper level 
trough will enhance the marine layer Thursday morning over western 
Washington. Expect stratus to reform along the coast tonight and 
spread inland Thursday morning. Marine push does not look strong 
enough at this point to get stratus up into Cascade valleys but it 
does look strong enough to get the stratus to the most of the inland 
terminals for a few hours Thursday morning. Ceilings with the 
stratus look to be in the 1000-2000 foot range for the interior and 
below 1000 feet along the coast. There is also a chance of drizzle 
along the coast late tonight into Thursday morning with visibilities 
1-3sm. Conditions improving Thursday afternoon with VFR over all but 
the coastal areas. 


Ksea...mostly clear skies into early Thursday morning .Stratus 
arriving at the terminal around 12z with ceilings around 1000 feet. 
Ceilings lifting during the morning hours with the stratus 
scattering out Thursday afternoon. Southerly winds 4 to 8 knots will 
try to come around to northwesterly tonight ending up in the 250-290 
degree range for a few hours. Winds southwesterly 4 to 8 knots 
Thursday morning. Felton 


&& 


Marine...low level onshore flow pattern will continue through the 
weekend. Highest winds and waves are expected in the central and 
east Strait of Juan Delaware fuca during the late afternoon and evening 
hours. A weak cold front will cross western Washington on Thursday... 
followed by another weak system on Friday. Both of these systems are 
not strong enough to disrupt the onshore flow pattern. 
&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory central and eastern Strait of Juan Delaware 
fuca...Admiralty Inlet...and northern inland waters.
