NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
900 am PDT Friday Oct 31 2014 


Synopsis...a Pacific frontal system will bring rainfall to western 
Washington this morning. The cold front will cross the Cascades this 
afternoon with the rain turning to showers. Saturday should be 
partly sunny with light spotty showers. Another front will approach 
the area on Sunday with rain developing along the coast late in the 
day. This will be the first in a series of weather systems that will 
bring rainy and locally windy weather to the area most of next week. 


&& 


Short term...infrared satellite image shows the north/S oriented frontal band 
stalled over the Pacific northwest overnight. Radar and observation are indicating 
light to moderate overspreading the area which will continue the 
next few hours. A squall line on radar is about to move onto the 
coast and this will probably be the last burst of heavier rain is it 
slowly moves into the interior over the next few hours. It will be 
weakly unstable near the coast where model lifted indice's are around -1c. 
There are strikes offshore so the forecast will be updated for 
isolated thunderstorms possible along the coast this afternoon. 
Satellite imagery shows a distinct dry slot so a period of mostly 
dry weather by this evening. With the 500 mb trough axis still 
offshore so a few stray showers cannot be ruled out. 


The trough axis slowly moves through on Saturday. Models are 
generally dry but some isolated diurnally driven shows are not out 
of the question. Probability of precipitation may be trimmed back further or removed but 
will make the decision on that with the afternoon forecast 
issuance. 


Mostly dry weather will continue Saturday night but the break will 
be brief. A warm frontal waves will bring some rain back into the 
forecast on Sunday. Timing is questionable but the 06gfs/00ecmwf 
indicate increasing rain mostly during the afternoon. Rain will 
continue at times through Monday ahead the main surface low which 
will track into central British Columbia. Highs will change very 
little through the weekend with highs in the low to middle 50s. Mercer 


Long term...no updates from previous discussion...extended models 
have a general theme of a wet period during the extended forecast 
and confidence is high in this general trend. The devil is in the 
details. Both the European model (ecmwf) and GFS show the system Sunday night into 
Monday with another system right on its heels for Monday night into 
Tuesday. The solutions start to diverge on Tuesday with the GFS 
moving the front through the area while the European model (ecmwf) stalls the front 
over western Washington with the pattern showing an atmospheric 
river setting up across the eastern Pacific. The GFS lifts another 
system into the area Tuesday night into Wednesday while the European model (ecmwf) 
keeps the long fetch of moisture aimed right at the area. The GFS 
lifts the front north of the area Wednesday night and Thursday with 
a upper level low developing off the coast moving toward haida 
gwaii. The European model (ecmwf) is much further south with this feature resulting 
in a slower lifting of the front to the north. The extended forecast 
will have rain or rain likely in every period Sunday night through 
Thursday. Felton 


&& 


Hydrology...a Flood Warning is in effect for the Skokomish River 
early this morning. Rainfall amounts overnight were not very 
impressive...generally under 1 inch. With precipitation decreasing 
and the upper Forks of the River already coming down...flooding 
looks unlikely. Will continue to watch this but the warning may be 
dropped later this morning. Forecasts and statements should still be 
monitored. 


The other river we have been concerned about is the Nooksack river. 
Rainfall amounts overnight have been running below the predicted 
values. With the front moving through later this morning flooding on 
the Nooksack also looks unlikely. 


Flooding is not expected on other area rivers during the next 7 days 
although if the European model (ecmwf) solution verifies some of the more flood prone 
rivers will need watch in the middle of the week. Felton/Mercer 


&& 


Aviation...moderate southwest flow aloft. The air mass is stable 
and moist but will becoming more unstable today as cooler air moves 
in aloft. Areas of rain over western Washington this morning will 
more showery today. There is a trough just offshore that should 
weaken and near the coast later today. 


Ksea...the rain will turn to showers this morning. Some pretty poor 
conditions this morning...IFR ceilings and visibilities. These 
should improve in the afternoon as the system moves slowly east. 
Light southerly wind. Chb 


&& 


Marine...pressure gradients are light today and there are no 
advisories in effect. The trough just offshore is forecast to be 
weak by the time it moves ashore tonight...so no advisories for that 
either. Weak high pressure will build Saturday. A series of stronger 
systems is likely for next week beginning Sunday. Chb 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 


Washington...Flood Warning Skokomish River. 
Pz...none.
