NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...corrected 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
513 am PDT Monday may 2 2016 


Corrected a minor typo in the last paragraph of the long term 
segment. 


Synopsis...high pressure aloft will continue moving slowly 
east...allowing low pressure offshore to approach. Expect 
another day of unseasonably warm weather today before temperatures 
cool 10 to 15 degrees on Tuesday. Weather conditions will also be 
unsettled Tuesday and Wednesday due to the proximity of the low 
pressure system offshore. 


&& 


Short term... 
an upper level ridge over the region will shift slowly east 
through Tuesday...allowing an upper level trough over the northeast 
Pacific to approach the West Coast. This will cause the flow aloft 
to become southerly and strengthen during this time frame. 


Expect middle and high clouds to begin overspreading the forecast 
area during the day today. Some midlevel instability will also 
work its way north across the area tonight for a risk of thunderstorms 
over the far southwest interior. The thunderstorms made it as far north as 
northern California yesterday. With the flow aloft becoming southerly... 
should expect the thunderstorms to be over northern Oregon by late this 
afternoon. There continued to be some uncertainty in regards to 
the thunderstorm threat. The sref continued to advertise a threat of thunderstorms 
over much of the interior County Warning Area this evening. It even indicated a 
risk over the southwest interior this afternoon but this timing 
appeared too quick. At any rate...the day shift will need to 
reassess the potential for thunderstorms after the 1200 UTC model cycle 
arrives. 


The low level offshore flow will become flat this afternoon before 
turning light onshore tonight. The onshore surface pressure 
gradient will tighten significantly during the day Tuesday. The 
GFS model was predicting the kuil to kbli pressure gradient to be 
plus 4.1 mb at 5 PM PDT Tuesday. This combined with increased 
cloud cover and a threat of showers will result in markedly cooler 
temperatures on Tuesday. In other words...today will be the last day of 
the current hot spell. It will be 10-15 degrees cooler at most 
places on Tuesday. Additional cooling will occur on Wednesday... 
with temperatures forecast to be near or slightly below normal. 


Anticipate the upper level trough offshore on Tuesday to remain 
offshore on Wednesday while splitting. Much of the energy with 
this trough will head towards northern British Columbia and 
California. 


Long term... 
Washington will lie between upper level ridges centered offshore and over 
The Rockies and troughs over British Columbia and California on Thursday. 
There will be a continued threat of showers on Thursday but the 
threat will be diminishing with time. 


The upper level ridge offshore will build over the area on Friday 
and signal a trend towards warmer and drier conditions. There may 
be a lingering threat of showers over the Cascades on Friday... 
otherwise expect dry weather through this weekend. Temperatures will 
likely climb above normal. Although confidence in the forecast 
was not high for day 7. The European model (ecmwf) solution had the region under 
the influence of a deep trough over western Canada on Sunday 
whereas the GFS had a strong upper ridge centered over western 
Canada. If the European model (ecmwf) is correct...the forecast is too warm and 
sunny. The current forecast reflected model consensus. 


&& 


Aviation...upper level ridge centered over southern British 
Columbia and Alberta with easterly flow aloft. Light low level 
offshore flow expected today before gradually shifting onshore 
late tonight and into Tuesday. 


The combination of this upper level ridge and low level offshore 
flow will result in clear skies over the area today. As low level 
flow starts to gradually turn onshore...however...expect high clouds 
to slowly start to filter in late tonight and tomorrow. Smr 


Ksea...clear skies. East to northeast winds this morning and early 
afternoon 7 to 10 knots. By late afternoon and early evening...winds 
will shift westerly with only a slight easing down to 5-8 knots. Smr 


&& 


Marine...low level offshore flow this morning with low 
pressure over the coastal waters. A return to low level onshore flow 
will occur tonight and continue into Tuesday with varying degrees of 
onshore flow through the end of the week. Earlier model runs were 
suggesting that gale force winds might be possible in the central 
and eastern Strait of Juan Delaware fuca Tuesday night...but most recent 
runs have backed away from this solution with only Small Craft 
Advisory level winds expected. Will be curious to see what next run 
comes up with...but at least some sort of headline will likely 
be needed for that time period. Smr 


&& 


Climate... 
April 2016 was the warmest April on record across western 
Washington. April 2016 temperatures crushed the old record 
temperatures by 1.5 degrees to a little more than 3 degrees. 
Seattle had the biggest difference with 56.7 degrees versus the 
old record of 53.6 degrees set in 1977. Other records include... 
but are not limited to...Olympia 53... record 50.9 (1989)... 
Bellingham 54... record 52.0 (1989)...Hoquiam 53.8 degrees... 
old record 52.3 (1987)...and Quillayute 51.9 degrees...old record 
50.3 (1989). 


Including the record warm April...Seattle has had 7 record warm 
months in the last 19 months...October and December 2014 and 
February...March... June and July...2015. Felton
