NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
348 PM PDT Monday Jul 6 2015 


Synopsis...the strong upper level ridge over the region will weaken 
gradually this week allowing daily temperatures to cool very slowly 
through Thursday. A large upper level trough developing offshore 
Thursday night combined with increasing onshore flow will produce 
more normal Summer weather from Friday Onward. 


&& 


Short term...a fairly strong upper level longwave ridge remains in 
place just west of the b.C. Coast this afternoon with northwest flow aloft 
down the east side of the ridge over West Washington. 500 mb heights are still 
somewhat high at just below 5850 meters. The GFS and European model (ecmwf) are in 
good agreement that the ridge will slowly collapse this week. 


A couple of weak upper level shortwave troughs moving southeast across the 
area on Tuesday will bring slight air mass cooling. The second 
shortwave trough...which should be over northern b.C. This 
afternoon...could trigger some isolated convection over the north 
Cascades Tuesday afternoon and evening. SW onshore flow this 
afternoon is running about 1.5 mb ahead of yesterday...which should 
be enough to bring shallow stratus inland across most of Puget Sound sound 
Tuesday morning. Combined with the slight general air mass 
cooling...the onshore flow will bring maximum temperatures back into the 80s in 
most areas. 


The upper level ridge will continue collapsing Wednesday...but 
progresses east over b.C. And the pacnw...for slightly higher 500 mb 
heights and brief air mass warming. Onshore flow Tuesday night will 
be weaker and from the northwest...producing less stratus over inland 
areas. As a result...maximum temperatures Wednesday should warm up a couple of 
degrees...in the 80s to near 90. 


Thursday will be a transition day. The upper level ridge axis will 
move east over central Canada as an offshore upper level trough near 
135w slowly approaches the coast. Morning stratus over the coast and 
lower Chehalis valley should clear by midday. This will be the last 
day for the residual warm air mass with highs in the 80s. The GFS 
shows S flow developing at 700 mb Thursday afternoon and evening and 
has some convection developing over the Cascade crest. The European model (ecmwf) 
does not have this. I will go with the GFS solution and blend in 
with neighboring offices...and add a chance of afternoon and evening 
thunderstorms to the Cascade crest. Kam 


Long term...SW onshore flow will increase Thursday night as the 
large 135w upper level trough approaches the region. Fairly strong 
SW onshore flow will develop Thursday evening ahead of the trough... 
which should cover most of the interior lowlands in stratus Friday 
morning. Combined cooling from the approaching trough and onshore 
flow should drop maximum temperatures back to the 70s. Over the 
weekend...onshore flow will be weaker compared to Thursday 
night...but will be strong enough to maintain the normal Summer 
pattern the pattern of night and morning low clouds and afternoon 
sunshine through the weekend. Kam 


&& 


Aviation...the marine layer on the coast will push inland overnight 
and the low clouds will probably make it to near I-5 around 
daybreak. A typical burn back toward the coast is likely Tuesday. 
Skies should remain a bit hazy and the smoke aloft seems to be 
persisting for now...especially in the north. 


Ksea...some low clouds will probably make it into sea-tac for a 
few hours Tuesday morning...the marine layer is deeper on the 
coast now. 


&& 


Marine...low clouds and fog patches for the coast and western 
Strait will push inland late tonight. There is high pressure along 
the coast and lower pressure east of the Cascades resulting in 
onshore flow. The wind should be around gale force this 
evening...especially closer to Race Rocks...and a Gale Warning is up 
for the central and eastern Strait as marine air pushes in. The West 
Entrance and northern waters have a Small Craft Advisory and some breezy 
weather is likely with the marine air pushing in this evening. 


&& 


Fire weather...forecast concerns in both the short term and the 
long term. Short term...enough instability will be over portions of 
the north Cascades for a thunderstorm threat Tuesday afternoon and 
evening. However...models not only keep this instability brief but 
also pretty limited area-wise. Thus...will keep current isolated 
wording from inherited forecast and will not opt for any fire 
weather watches or red flag warnings at this time...although will 
put a headline on the forecast for this isolated lightning 
threat...given the extremely dry nature of fuels out there. The long 
term issue comes toward the end of the week...starting Thursday...as 
a trough off the West Coast begins to impact the area. At this 
time...will put in a chance for thunderstorms...but will reevaluate 
the threat depending on how well the short term issue Tuesday pans 
out. Smr 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Gale Warning central and east Strait of Juan Delaware fuca... 
Small Craft Advisory West Entrance Strait and northern inland waters.
