NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...corrected 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
345 am PDT Thursday may 28 2015 


Corrected to fix a couple of typos. 


Synopsis...high pressure aloft will prevail over the region today. 
A low pressure system over northwest British Columbia will drift 
into central British Columbia tonight where it will stall. This 
will place the area under westerly flow aloft through Saturday. 
Daytime temperatures are forecast to remain above normal. 


&& 


Short term... 
stratus has made it as far east as the far southern Puget Sound sound 
and Admiralty Inlet area at this time. The low clouds are forecast 
to blanket much of the Puget Sound sound region after sunrise before 
retreating back to the coast late this morning. 


Meanwhile...a weakening upper level ridge will prevail over the 
region today. The air mass will be a little warmer than 
yesterday...so expect additional warming across much of the County Warning Area 
this afternoon. There will also be a risk of showers over the 
Cascades again late this afternoon through early this evening. 
Decided to omit the chance of thunderstorms for today. The ingredients 
/moisture...lift...and instability/ plus the steering flow did not 
appear as favorable for thunderstorms today as yesterday. However...this 
does not mean that the threat of thunderstorms is zero...just not high 
enough to mention them in the forecast. 


A cut-off low over British Columbia will begin to exert more 
influence over the region tonight through Friday. Confidence in the 
cloud and maximum temperature forecast was not very high. This will be a 
tricky forecast. There is a possibility that the surface onshore 
pressure gradient could be stronger than what the models 
advertised...which would lead to cooler than predicted temperatures on 
Friday. Otherwise...anticipate a threat of afternoon and early 
evening showers over the Cascades on Friday. 


It looks like another tricky forecast for Saturday...so confidence 
in the forecast was not high. Chose to lean toward the cooler 
solutions. Daytime temperatures will still be well above normal for this 
time of the year...unless the onshore gradient ends up being 
tighter than predicted. 


Long term... 
an upper level ridge will build over the region on Sunday ahead of 
a negative-tilted upper level trough approaching from the southwest. 
Thus...temperatures should be a little warmer on Sunday compared to 
Saturday due to weaker onshore flow. 


The aforementioned upper low will move over Oregon on Monday. 
Moisture coming up from the south with this low will bring an 
increasing chance of showers to the area. Highs will cool into the 
60s. The upper low will move inland to the south...close enough to 
keep showers and clouds over the area through Tuesday with highs 
remaining in the 60s. 


Weak high pressure aloft will build over the region on Wednesday. 
This should allow things to dry out and there will probably be some 
sunshine by afternoon. Schneider/05 


&& 


Aviation...an upper ridge over the offshore waters will weaken and 
slide east today. North flow aloft will become westerly late this afternoon 
and tonight. The air mass is dry and stable with a marine layer that 
will burn back to the coastline midday. 


Very low stratus with areas of fog has pushed east through the 
Strait of Juan Delaware fuca onto Whidbey Island. This low level moisture 
will slide southeast through Admiralty Inlet to around the kpae terminal by 
12z. In the mean time low stratus and fog has pushed inland through 
the Chehalis gap to the far southern portions of Puget Sound sound. Expect 
this deck to reach the ksea terminal around 12z. Stratus bases are 
003-005 mean sea level and tops appear to be 1000 feet or less based on estimates 
from multispectral satellite images early this morning. Expect all 
of the stratus to burn back to the Pacific coastline by 19z leaving 
mainly clear skies in the interior. The air mass over the Cascades 
will destabilize with daytime heating 21z-03z this afternoon giving 
some cumulus buildups and a slight chance of showers. The risk for 
thunderstorms is expected to remain east of the crest as the 
steering flow aloft turns more northwesterly. Stratus along the coast will 
push back inland overnight tonight and reach most of the inland 
terminals Friday morning with coverage slightly less than this 
morning. Albrecht 


Ksea...stratus with bases 002-003 will reach the terminal by 13z. 
There is a 50 percent chance that visible will lower to 2sm or less as 
the bases of the incoming stratus layer is quite low -fl003 at kshn. 
Stratus will quickly lift and burn off 18z-19z then move back inland 
13z on Friday. Light winds will become northwesterly 4-7 knots after 19z then 
turn north and diminish this evening. Albrecht 


&& 


Marine...a surface ridge along about 140w combined with lower pressure 
east of the Cascades will give light onshore flow through the weekend. 
The flow though the central and eastern Strait of Juan Delaware fuca will 
likely increase to Small Craft Advisory criteria during the late 
afternoon and evening hours each day in response to daytime heating 
in the interior. Albrecht 


&& 




Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory in effect until 6 am this morning for the 
central and eastern Strait of Juan Delaware fuca.
