NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...corrected 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
443 PM PDT Monday Aug 3 2015 


Corrected to fix minor typo 


Synopsis...low pressure aloft will prevail over the Pacific 
northwest through Wednesday. This combined with onshore flow will 
result in cooler conditions. There will also be a threat of 
showers on Wednesday. Weak high pressure aloft will prevail on 
Thursday. 


&& 


Short term... 
there were some lingering clouds over the Cascades /near the 
crest/ and the coast this afternoon. Elsewhere...skies were 
generally sunny. The surface onshore pressure gradient continued 
to tighten this afternoon. At 3 PM PDT...the kuil to kbli pressure 
gradient was plus 2.8 mb. 


An upper trough that will be centered over western Canada will 
dominate the weather pattern over the Pacific northwest through 
midweek. This combined with moderate to strong low level onshore 
flow will result in cooler conditions across the County Warning Area. Daytime 
temperatures are anticipated to be near or slightly below normal Tuesday and 
Wednesday. 


The upper low will move into southern British Columbia on Wednesday... 
and this should lead to a risk of showers over primarily the 
northern part of the County Warning Area and within the Puget Sound sound convergence 
zone. 


Anticipate the upper trough to move into The Rockies on Thursday. A weak 
upper ridge will follow on its heels. Skies will likely start off 
cloudy over many places Thursday morning but the clouds should give way 
to mostly sunny skies in the afternoon. Therefore...anticipate temperatures 
to be about normal for this time of the year. 


Long term... 
weak high pressure aloft is anticipated to prevail over the region 
on Friday. This combined with weak low level onshore flow will lead 
to slightly above normal temperatures. 


Beyond Friday...the medium range solutions were in fairly good 
agreement that an upper trough will dominate the weather pattern 
over the Pacific northwest. The main differences were in the 
details. The models predicted maximum temperatures appeared too warm in 
light of the pattern being advertised...thus took a risk and 
undercut guidance. The current forecast indicated below normal 
daytime temperatures for Saturday through Monday. 


&& 


Aviation...an upper level trough will approach from the northwest 
tonight and Tuesday giving west to SW flow aloft. A weak cold front 
extending SW from central British through central Vancouver Island 
and into the Pacific will move southeast through the region this evening. 
The main impacts of the front will be to spread a deep stratus layer 
inland late tonight through Tuesday morning and increase low level 
onshore flow. 


Visible satellite imagery this afternoon shows some stratus with 
bases 015-020 over the western reaches of the Strait of Juan Delaware fuca 
southward over the north coast and into the coastal waters just west of 
khqm. This stratus will surge inland this evening as the frontal 
system to the northwest moves across the area. In the interior...just some 
scattered to broken cirrus today will give way to bkn050 this 
evening. Stratus bases will lower to around 015 late tonight as the 
onshore flow increases behind the frontal system. The stratus over 
the interior will lift to around bkn035-040 Tuesday afternoon and to 
bkn025 over the coastal areas. Albrecht 


Ksea...good VFR conditions with only scattered cirrus through about 
04z this evening. Stratus with bases 040-050 will develop around 04z 
then cloud bases will lower to 015 after 10z through about 17z Tuesday. 
Light west to SW winds will back to south 5-8 knots after 04z. Albrecht 


&& 


Marine...high pressure well offshore combined with lower pressure 
east of the Cascades is giving strong onshore flow to the area. The 
onshore flow will increase somewhat this evening as a weak cold 
front extending southwestward from central Vancouver Island moves through the 
waters. Onshore flow will remain strong through Wednesday night with 
strongest inflow in the central and eastern Strait of Juan Delaware fuca 
during the late afternoon and overnight hours. 


A Gale Warning is in effect until 5 am PDT Tuesday for the central and 
eastern Strait of Juan Delaware fuca. Gales are possible Tuesday night as 
well in the central and eastern Strait. Small Craft Advisory northwest 
winds are expected in Admiralty Inlet...with strongest winds near 
the East Entrance to the Strait. 


Small craft advisories are in effect for the coastal waters beyond 
10 nm from the coastline as northwest pressure gradients increase this 
evening through Tuesday morning. Winds in the coastal waters will 
relax midday Tuesday. Albrecht 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Gale Warning in effect until 5 am Tuesday for the central and 
eastern Strait of Juan Delaware fuca. 


Small craft advisories are in effect for the coastal waters 
from Cape Flattery to Cape Shoalwater from 10 nm out to 60 
nm and the Admiralty Inlet.
