NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...updated 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
331 PM PDT Wednesday Apr 23 2014 


Updated hydrology section and added avalanche section. 


Synopsis...a warm front will spread rain into western Washington 
from the south tonight. A cold front will move inland Thursday 
morning. An upper level trough digging into the Pacific northwest on 
Friday will keep scattered showers in the forecast. A third frontal 
system will bring another round of more organized rainfall to the 
area Saturday night into Sunday morning. 


&& 


Short term...rain will increase across western Washington this 
evening as a warm front lifts north through the region. The leading 
edge of the precipitation shield is now up to King County...rain should 
reach the northwest interior by midnight tonight. The cold front will push 
inland Thursday morning for more showers and breezy to windy 
conditions. Snow levels will rise to around 5000 feet with the warm 
front...then drop back down to around 4000 feet behind the cold front 
on Thursday. 


The air mass will remain cool and unstable on Friday as an upper 
level low over the NE Pacific moves inland. Expect isolated to scattered 
showers with temperatures in the 50s. Isolated T-storms are possible Friday 
afternoon but confidence is low. The upper low will weaken and exit 
east Friday night with showers decreasing across the area. 


Look for a break in the weather on Saturday with weak ridging over 
western Washington. The timing of the next front is a little slower 
in the models...which is now slated to move inland Saturday night 
for another wet period of weather. 33 


Long term...moist westerly flow will keep a chance of showers in 
the forecast on Sunday. Models show a weak upper level disturbance 
tracking through western Washington for scattered activity. Showers will 
decrease Sun night as a ridge start to build over the Pacific northwest. 


A weak warm front may clip western Washington on Monday for a chance 
of rain. The models then strengthen the ridge over the Pacific northwest Tuesday 
and Wednesday for warmer and drier weather. The forecast leans toward the 
European model (ecmwf) solution which shows an 500 mb 580 ridge over Washington. The low level 
flow is also turning offshore and we should see highs in the upper 
60s to 70s if this pans out. 33 


&& 


Hydrology...river flooding remains unlikely for the next 7 days. 


The exception remains 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. 


At 3 PM...the North Fork of the stillaguamish near Arlington was 
at 4.6 feet...or 2840 cfs. The North Fork of the stillaguamish river 
near Oso was at 216.4 feet at 1850 cfs. The pool east of the slide was 
282.3 feet this afternoon. 


A warm front will spread rain into the area tonight...followed by a 
cold front Thursday morning. This system will bring around 1.00 inch 
of rainfall to the area through Thursday afternoon. This is expected 
to produce rises on the stillaguamish river beginning this evening 
through Thursday. The latest hydrograph shows the stillaguamish near 
Arlington cresting late Thursday morning around 5 feet. 


&& 


Avalanche...further heavy snow and then potential rain should be 
seen in the Montana Rainier to Montana Hood area Wednesday night and Thursday 
morning. This is very likely to cause wet loose...storm slab and 
wind slab avalanche conditions in this area. An avalanche warning 
will be issued for the Montana Rainier to Montana Hood area for Wednesday 
night and Thursday morning. Back country travel in avalanche terrain 
is this area is not recommended Wednesday night and Thursday 
morning. 


Significant snow and avalanche conditions are also expected in other 
areas but that are slightly less than warning criteria. Avalanches 
are also likely in these other areas as well. 


Please visit nwac.US for details. Gkf 


&& 


Aviation...a warm front will move south to north through Washington 
tonight. Upper flow will turn southwesterly. Widespread rain will 
spread north this afternoon and tonight as the warm front moves in. 
At the surface a low pressure center will approach the coast tonight 
then move northeast into Vancouver Island tonight...giving moderate 
to strong southeast winds. 


Clouds will continue to increase and spread north. Ceilings will 
lower this afternoon to MVFR as rain moves in from the south. MVFR 
ceilings are likely all night into Thursday morning. 


Ksea...MVFR ceilings 2-3k feet. Rain will reduce visibility to 3sm at 
times tonight. Southerly wind 10-15 knots. Chb 


&& 


Marine...warm frontal rain band is moving slowly north. Winds have 
been 15-20 knots over inland areas...more in a few spots...so have 
issued small craft advisories for all inland waters tonight through 
Thursday. Models had some low end gale winds on the coast so have 
issued a Gale Warning there. Generally it will be a gusty period 
tonight and Thursday. 


After a lull in the action Friday...another front will spread Small 
Craft Advisory strength winds over the area Saturday night. Yet 
another system arrives around Tuesday. Chb 


&& 


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 coast. 
Small Craft Advisory all other waters. 
Small Craft Advisory for rough Grays Harbor bar.
