NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
350 am PST Monday Dec 22 2014 


Synopsis...an upper level ridge will move east over western 
Washington today for a partly sunny and dry day. A frontal system 
will spread light rain partway inland late tonight and across the 
area Tuesday and Tuesday night. An upper level trough will keep the 
rain going on Wednesday. Drier northwest flow aloft will keep the 
area cool and mainly dry late this week. 


&& 


Short term...a moderate amplitude upper level ridge continues to 
build just offshore this morning. The surface high associated with 
the upper level ridge will move over West Washington this morning...followed by 
the ridge axis early this evening. Drier northwest flow aloft continues 
over West Washington which has allowed skies over The Lowlands to clear more 
than expected. Radar still shows some residual isolated showers over 
the Cascades...but these should end later this morning. I will stick 
with the partly sunny forecast for today as both the models and 
satellite imagery have some middle/high level clouds moving over the 
area this afternoon. 


The upper level ridge will weaken and flatten as it moves inland 
this evening...which will eventually allow the frontal system 
currently offshore along 150w to spread rain inland late tonight 
through Tuesday night. The models remain consistent in draping the 
cold front across the region on Tuesday...then moving it slowly 
south across West Washington Tuesday night. Moderately strong SW flow aloft at 
850 mb will probably bring a short period of moderate to heavy rain 
to the Olympics and north Cascades on Tuesday. 


Snow levels will rise to 6000-7000 feet Tuesday...but will lower to 
around 3000 feet Tuesday night as the cold front moves slowly S. 
Depending upon how long the heavier precipitation lasts over the mountains 
Tuesday afternoon and evening...when snow levels start to 
lower...there is some potential for a short period of heavy mountain 
snow. The current forecast has the heavier precipitation falling while snow 
levels remain high...but this will be monitored for changes. 


On Wednesday a moderate amplitude upper level shortwave trough will 
move southeast across the Pacific northwest. This feature will invigorate 
the old cold front a little and should keep light rain going through 
the day. Model solutions have been evolving a little and now take 
the strongest part of the trough to the south across Oregon. The 
weaker northern part of the trough approaches West Washington Wednesday...with 
the axis crossing the area Wednesday evening. Snow levels will be 
between 2000-3000 feet on Wednesday...but with the weaker part of 
the trough affecting the area mountain snow accumulations will be 
lower. 


Cooler air moving S behind the cold front will push maximum temperatures 
Wednesday into the middle 40s. Kam 


Long term...both the GFS and European model (ecmwf) agree that drier northwest flow aloft 
will set up over West Washington Thursday and Friday. I have stuck with the 
current dry forecast...but the models have been trending somewhat 
wetter...probably as small weak shortwaves move southeast across the area. 
If the model trend holds then we will probably need to put a chance 
of rain back into the forecast. 


The 06z GFS has migrated to the 00z European model (ecmwf) solution with respect to a 
stronger upper level trough that may affect the area Friday night 
and Saturday. The GFS showing a stronger shortwave than the 
European model (ecmwf)...and the timing of the trough is still in question. Kam 


&& 


Hydrology...flooding is unlikely over the next 7 days. 


&& 


Aviation...northwest flow aloft with an upper ridge building over 
the northeast Pacific today and tonight. A warm front will move into 
the area tonight. At the surface...weak high pressure will move over 
western Washington today with increasing southerly flow tonight. Air 
mass somewhat moist and stable. Areas of low clouds this morning 
with some improvement likely this afternoon as the low levels dry. 


Ksea...expect low clouds to fill in this morning...then break up 
this afternoon. Light wind. Schneider 


&& 


Marine...weak high pressure will move over western Washington today 
with easing winds. West swell 10-13 feet will continue over the 
coastal waters. 


A frontal system will move through the waters tonight and 
Tuesday...bringing Small Craft Advisory winds to most areas. A 
trailing trough or surface low will affect the waters Wednesday 
although models are not in good agreement with the details about 
this feature. 


Some of the higher astronomical high tides of the year will be 
occurring this week along with slight tidal anomalies due to passing 
weather systems. It looks like minor tidal overflow is possible for 
some locations around Puget Sound sound early Tuesday morning with a 
better chance early Wednesday morning. Schneider 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory central and East Entrance Strait of Juan 
Delaware fuca. 
.Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas coastal waters and 
West Entrance Strait of Juan Delaware fuca. 
.Small Craft Advisory for rough bar Grays Harbor bar.
