NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
900 PM PDT Thursday Jul 31 2014 


Synopsis...a strong ridge of high pressure over the Pacific 
northwest will bring mainly sunny and warm weather to western 
Washington into next week. Light onshore flow will result in some 
night and morning low clouds...especially at the coast. Weak 
instability aloft could produce isolated thunderstorms Friday 
through Sunday...mainly over the mountains. 


&& 


Short term...the large-scale pattern remains the same as it has for 
several days now...with a large upper level ridge covering the 
western United States. Monsoonal moisture moving northward along the 
west side of the ridge is producing thunderstorms along the Oregon 
Cascades and across eastern Washington...with a single strike over 
Yakima County earlier this evening. Aside from a few high debris 
clouds...the skies over the forecast area are virtually clear -- 
including an absence of marine stratus over the coast or coastal 
waters. 


There will be little change in the synoptic pattern tonight or 
Friday. Aside from the diurnal seabreeze -- showing up mainly as 
gale westerlies in the Strait of Juan Delaware fuca again this evening -- 
the low level flow is weakly offshore...and it will turn only weakly 
onshore late tonight. There could be a little coastal stratus but 
little to any inland tonight or Friday morning. 


There is a minor upper low over the central Oregon waters this 
evening...and it will move northward through the Washington coastal 
waters later tonight and Friday. This feature could draw the 
convective activity over the Oregon Cascades north or northwest into 
our forecast area. So there is a possibility of isolated 
thunderstorms over parts of the western Washington lowlands late 
tonight through Friday evening...as well as the mountains. The 
forecast for only partly sunny skies Friday is due to the clouds 
associated with that activity...but certainly we could end up with 
mostly sunny skies. 


The familiar pattern of the upper ridge and light onshore low level 
flow will continue Saturday and Sunday. Coastal stratus will 
probably be present and move inland a bit each night. Day break 
stratus over the western Washington interior will give way quickly 
to sunshine. Isolated thunderstorms are possible over the 
mountains...especially along the Cascades crest Saturday. Mcdonnal 


Long term...here is the long term section from the afternoon 
forecast discussion -- a ridge will strengthen over the Pacific northwest early 
next week. This will bring a return to warmer temperatures and less 
morning cloud cover over the interior. Highs Monday through middle week 
will generally be in the 80s around Puget Sound sound. By Thursday some 
long range models try to develop westerlies over the NE Pacific. 
This could result in stronger onshore flow and cooler daytime 
temperatures. There are no well defined fronts approaching the area 
so it looks to stay dry through next week. Mercer 


&& 


Aviation...a ridge is over the western U.S. With south-southwest flow aloft over 
Washington. At the surface there is high pressure offshore with thermal low 
pressure inland. A disturbance over Oregon will move north and some 
moisture and instability will reach western Washington later tonight and Friday. 
There will be some middle and high clouds and perhaps altocumulus castellanus with a 
chance of thunderstorms Friday. Patchy fog will be confined to the coast and 
there is no fog or low clouds over the coastal waters this evening 
which is a bit of a surprise. At 8pm there were a thunderstorm near 
Newport Oregon so it will be Worth checking the radar later tonight 
and Friday. 


Ksea...middle level clouds and maybe some altocumulus castellanus with a slight chance of 
a high based thunderstorm will reach the Puget Sound sound area later 
tonight and Friday. The chance of a storm over Seattle is pretty low 
but it will be Worth watching the radar later tonight through Friday. 


&& 


Marine...high pressure is over the offshore waters with thermal low 
pressure east of the Cascades...and that hasn't changed over the 
past few days. What is different is that there is a weather 
disturbance over Oregon moving north and a thunderstorm near Newport 
Oregon at 8pm. We may see a couple of storms over western Washington late 
tonight and Friday. Otherwise...the fairly strong summertime 
westerly sea breeze flow in the Strait of Juan Delaware fuca with a pretty 
good northwest breeze over the coastal waters continues. At 8pm Race Rocks 
had west 35 knots...so a Gale Warning will be up for a few hours for 
the central Strait. 


&& 


Fire weather...elevated thunderstorms could move up into interior 
of western Washington on Friday morning. Hard to pin down exactly 
which zones will be affected...but confidence high enough to add 
thunderstorms to the forecast for all but the coast and western 
Olympic Mountains. In the afternoon...surface-based thunderstorms 
may develop over the highest mountain peaks...with storm motion from 
south to north. 


Since the heavy rains last week...fuels have dried to pre-requisite 
dryness needed to consider red flag warnings in lowlands zones from 
Seattle on south...over the eastern Olympic Mountains...and in the 
Stehekin area. Fuels remain too moist in other locations such as the 
north interior...western olympic peninsula and west slopes of the 
Cascades. Have issued a Fire Weather Watch for the east side of 
North Cascades National Park (stehekin area)...which is the only 
zone where fuels are dry enough and the confidence for scattered 
lightning on Friday is high enough for such an issuance. Of 
course...a Fire Weather Watch often precedes a red flag warning. 
Over the interior lowlands of western Washington...merely calling 
for isolated lightning...which is not widespread enough to warrant 
a rfw. Haner 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Gale Warning central Strait of Juan Delaware fuca. 
Small Craft Advisory East Entrance to the Strait of Juan Delaware 
fuca...coastal waters from James Island to Cape Shoalwater out 
to 10 nm. 
Gale watch late Friday afternoon and Friday night for the 
central Strait of Juan Delaware fuca and East Entrance Strait.
