NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
910 PM PDT Sat Oct 25 2014 


Synopsis...a deep low will reach the coast late this afternoon and 
then fill as it moves northeast. Rain and very windy conditions will 
occur this evening over western Washington. Sunday and Monday will 
be showery. Another weather system will arrive Tuesday. Wet and 
breezy weather is likely at times through the end of the week. 


&& 


Short term...a deep surface low has been tracking northeast through 
western Washington this evening. Southerly gradients behind the low 
are probably currently peaking and are strong enough to support at 
least spotty high wind. Warnings are in effect for central and south 
parts of the interior along with the coast for strong west winds. In 
addition...wind advisories are up for the north interior where 
gradients are expected to be not quite as strong. Winds should begin 
subsiding late this evening and continue slowly easing after 
midnight. 


Rain has mostly changed to showers this evening as the frontal 
system moves inland. Snow levels will drop to 4500-5000 feet 
tonight. Spots above 5000 feet in the Cascades like Paradise on 
Mount Rainier could pick up at least a few inches of snow by Sunday 
morning. 


Showers will linger Sunday...then mostly end Sunday night as high 
pressure aloft builds overhead. After a dry start to Monday...rain 
should develop at the coast...then spread inland late in the day as 
the next frontal system approaches. 


Most of the rain and wind with this system will occur Monday night. 
A 980 mb surface low will move inland north of Vancouver Island 
early Tuesday morning. This is a typical southeast sucker wind 
pattern...windy for the coast and north interior. Wind Advisory 
strength winds for these areas look like a good bet and marginal 
high wind is possible but it is too far out to worry about that for 
now. Rain will change to showers Tuesday behind the front with 
easing winds. Schneider 


Long term...previous discussion...Wednesday appears to be a mostly 
cloudy day with scattered showers. Another organized system arrives 
Thursday. At this point the GFS and Euro diverge with the Euro 
staying wet and the GFS turning showery. Not confident on any 
details but the forecast will stay moist into the weekend. Burke 


&& 


Hydrology...the Skokomish River is rising again in response to 
heavy rain today and tonight. It is possible the river will get 
close to flood stage tonight. For now the forecast takes the stage 
at Potlatch to between 15.5 and 16 feet. Flood stage is 16.5 feet. 


A break in the rain will allow the skokomish to recede river Monday. 
Another front Monday night and Tuesday will bring 2-3 inches of rain 
to the skokomish basin. Will need to keep a watch on this but the 
current forecast keeps the river below flood stage. 


Otherwise...flooding on other rivers is unlikely over the next 7 
days. Burke 


&& 


Aviation...a 991 mb surface low over southern b.C. Will continue 
moving NE tonight while higher pressure builds inland over West Washington. 
Very strong west-northwest onshore flow will gradually weaken...allowing 
strong surface winds to diminish overnight. An upper level trough 
over the area will move east tonight...but another upper level 
shortwave trough will move down the b.C. Coast and over West Washington Sunday. 
This will keep showers going over the area through this weekend. 
Conditions will be a mix of VFR and MVFR...with MVFR ceilings most 
likely around Puget Sound sound and around showers. 


Ksea...as of 04z strong SW surface winds have probably peaked this 
evening and will gradually diminish the rest of tonight. The pdx-bli 
pressure gradient has begun to weaken. Onshore flow will keep 
showers going over the area through Sunday. This will keep ceilings a 
mix of MVFR and VFR from 1000-4000 feet. Kam 




&& 


Marine...a 991 mb surface low over southern b.C. Will continue 
moving NE tonight...while higher pressure builds inland over West Washington. 
Extremely strong west-northwest onshore is producing gales over all 
waters...which will peak in the next few hours...then gradually 
diminish overnight. The hrrr model has been handling the pattern 
pretty well. Even though high pressure is building inland 
tonight...a surface trough will remain over West Washington through much of 
Sunday. An offshore surface ridge will finally move over the area 
Sunday night and Monday. Models remain on track with the next 
frontal system approaching the area Monday...then reaching the coast 
Monday night. It looks like a round of more typical gales for the 
coast and northern interior waters. After a Post-frontal trough on 
Tuesday...another surface ridge will build over the area middle next 
week. Kam 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 


Washington...High Wind Warning coast...southwest interior...Seattle/Tacoma 
metropolitan area. 
Wind Advisory northwest interior and east Puget Sound sound lowlands. 
Pz...Gale Warning all waters. 
Small Craft Advisory for rough bar conditions Grays Harbor.
