Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Special Statement  Statement as of 5:14 am PDT on August 27, 2015


... A change to wet and cooler weather is in store for western
Washington...

Today will be the last day of dry weather with above normal
temperatures. Tonight... a change in the weather pattern will
begin. The dome of high pressure that has prevailed over the
region will give way... allowing wet and cooler conditions to
become established over the area.

Friday through this weekend will be wet across western Washington.
Rain will become locally heavy at times... especially in the
mountains... on Saturday. Rainfall amounts during the two day
period ending at 5 am PDT Sunday are forecast to be in the 1 to
2.5 inch range for most areas but the south facing slopes of the
Olympics and Cascades could receive 3 to 5 inches of rain. This
amount of rain will likely end or help reduce the size of the
ongoing wildfires in the mountains.

Daytime temperatures will be below normal Friday through this
weekend. It is likely that most lowland sites will fail to reach
70 degrees this weekend... especially on Sunday.

It will also become locally windy on Saturday due to a strong
front moving across the area. Some southerly wind prone places on
the coast and in the northwest interior could have gusts in the 45
to 50 mph range.

Those planning outdoor activities in the mountains this weekend
should pay close attention to the latest forecasts from the
National Weather Service.

Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
900 am PDT Thursday Aug 27 2015 


Synopsis...a front just off the coast will bring rain to the coast 
tonight and into the interior of western Washington by daybreak 
Friday. Periods of rainy blustery weather are on tap into the 
weekend. An upper level trough will shift over the region through 
the middle of next week. 


&& 


Short term...clouds will start to increase today and then the front 
just offshore will spread rain to the coast tonight...and inland by 
daybreak Friday. Wet and cooler weather is on tap through 
Saturday...there will be several periods of soaking rain. Rainfall 
totals over 48hrs Friday and Sat should generally be 1-3 inches across 
western Washington...except not as wet in the olympic rain shadow and perhaps 
some 3-5 inch areas in the Olympics and north Cascades. It will be 
locally windy on the coast and parts of the northwest interior on 
Saturday. 


Long term...the medium range solutions remained in fairly good 
agreement that the Pacific northwest will remain in an active 
weather pattern. The snow levels should fall to around 6000ft by 
about next Tuesday or Wednesday and lowland temperatures will also be below normal. 


&& 


Aviation...fairly dry and stable southwest flow aloft will prevail 
over West Washington today between a large upper level low over the NE Pacific 
and a broad upper level ridge over The Rockies. Patchy stratus along 
the coast should dissipate by 18z. The SW flow aloft will bring high 
clouds across the area today. 


An upper level shortwave trough embedded in the SW flow aloft will 
spread clouds and light rain over West Washington after 06z...continuing 
through Saturday. Conditions should deteriorate to MVFR late tonight 
with possible IFR conditions along the coast. 


Ksea...good VFR conditions through 06z with scattered-broken cirrus over the 
area. Surface winds will be S-SW 4-7 knots. Ceilings broken-ovc060-100 will 
increase after 06z. Kam 


&& 


Marine...a weak surface ridge will remain over the Washington coast through 
Friday while lower pressure continues over East Washington. This will keep 
onshore pressure gradients weak...although there is still a fair 
likelihood of borderline Small Craft Advisory west winds in the 
central and eastern Strait of Juan Delaware fuca this evening. 


A series of frontal systems will move across the region Friday into 
early next week. These systems will increase the southerly flow over 
Washington waters with Small Craft Advisory winds likely at times. Latest models are 
indicating the front that moves north across the area on Saturday could 
be rather strong...with the strongest models suggesting gale force 
winds. Weaker solutions indicate Small Craft Advisory winds. Kam 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory from 5 PM this afternoon to 3 
am PDT Friday for central U.S. Waters Strait of Juan Delaware fuca-East 
Entrance U.S. Waters Strait of Juan Delaware fuca. 


&&
