NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
910 am PDT Thursday Apr 17 2014 


Synopsis...a frontal system will bring rain through today with 
decreasing showers tonight. Drier weather is forecast on Friday with 
weak high pressure overhead. Additional fronts will arrive later 
Saturday and later Sunday...keeping the weather generally wet. An 
upper trough will bring showery weather early next week. 


&& 


Short term...a front will move onshore today with rain changing to 
showers in the evening behind the front. Strong onshore flow will 
prevail behind the front for breezy conditions this evening most 
areas. Showers will taper pretty fast tonight...becoming mostly 
confined to the mountains and a Puget Sound sound convergence zone after 
midnight. A weak upper ridge will build over the area on Friday for 
a mostly dry day. Skies are expected to become partly sunny later in 
the day as the low levels dry. 


A second front will bring rain later Saturday. Models have been 
pretty consistent with the idea of rain reaching the coast around 
middle-morning and spreading inland in the afternoon. Sunday will 
probably be a mainly dry day in between weather systems. A third 
front will be approaching from the west but it looks like it will be 
slow moving and not spread rain into the area until around Sunday 
night or even Monday. Schneider 


Long term...previous discussion...an upper level low will form over 
the NE Pacific on Monday while a weak cold front crosses through western Washington 
for more rain. The low will then gradually shift inland Tuesday through 
Wednesday for a chance of showers. The air mass will remain cool and 
unstable with snow levels near 3000 feet. However with the low 
overhead we should have good mixing and will probably see afternoon 
sunbreaks. 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 is forecast to 
rise today with a crest just under 9 feet this evening. The river 
level will begin falling overnight and continue falling on Friday as 
high pressure moves over the area. 


Additional rainfall for the slide area through tonight will be on 
the order of about one inch. 


Additional fronts will affect the slide area later Saturday and 
Sunday. 


&& 


Aviation...an upper trough offshore will move across the area 
tonight. Strong SW flow aloft will become northwest later tonight. A cold 
front offshore will sweep across the region this afternoon. Low 
level onshore flow become strong behind the front. 


Expect a Puget Sound sound convergence zone /pscz/ to quickly develop 
between kawo and kpae behind the front late today. The pscz should 
become quasistationary near the King/Snohomish County border this 
evening. 


Ceilings are expected to be mainly in the 1-3k feet range during much of 
the day today. Rain will reduce visibilities into the 2-4sm range at times. 
Some improvement is anticipated this evening. 


&& 


Marine...a cold front about 130 nm offshore will move across the 
area this afternoon. Expect westerly winds to rise to gale force 
over parts of the Strait of Juan Delaware fuca behind the front. A 1019 mb 
high along the Washington coast and lower pressure east of the Cascades 
will result in light onshore flow on Friday. Expect a strong cold front 
to impact the region on Saturday. 


There is a possibility of high surf conditions on the coast late 
Saturday night through Sunday. The wave watch model indicated that 
seas could reach 15 to 20 feet by Sunday morning before subsiding 
Sunday afternoon. The current forecast slightly undercuts guidance. 
If model trends continue...will need to bump up wave heights on the 
coastal waters. 


&& 


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...Gale Warning central and eastern Strait. 
.Small Craft Advisory all other waters.
