NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
300 am PST sun Nov 23 2014 


Synopsis...a front will move through western Washington this 
morning...with rain turning to scattered showers this afternoon. 
Snow will continue in the mountains. After a brief lull tonight and 
Monday morning...a warm front will renew rainfall across the area 
Monday afternoon...with wet weather through Wednesday. Typical late 
November weather is likely Thanksgiving through Saturday. 


&& 


Short term...strong moist westerly flow aloft continues over 
western Washington early this morning...just ahead of a flat upper 
ridge over the offshore waters. A small but rather vigorous frontal 
system in the westerly flow is moving into the region...with rain 
falling over most of the forecast area. Temperatures at 2 am ranged 
from 45 to 50. The snow level was just a bit over 3000 feet. 


The cold front and its upper shortwave trough will move across 
western Washington fairly quickly this morning. It will bring more 
rain of course...along with breezy to windy conditions. Moist 
westerly flow will continue behind it. Steady rain will turn to 
scattered showers in the afternoon...and the winds will ease. There 
will probably be another Puget Sound sound convergence zone. Showers will 
become light and spotty tonight. 


Fairly steady precipitation should continue all day in the 
Cascades...first with the frontal precipitation this morning and 
then with moist westerly flow in its wake. The snow level will be 
around 3500 feet. Snoqualmie Pass -- at 3000 feet -- might not get much 
more snow...as it will probably be just below the elevation for 
significant snow accumulation. Stevens Pass has a better chance for 
heavy snow...since it is just above 4000 feet and the convergence zone 
will probably enhance precipitation there this afternoon and 
evening. The Winter Storm Warning for the Cascades will remain in 
effect. 


The upper ridge will build over the area tonight...while a warm 
front moving over the north side of the ridge moves into western 
Washington. This will mark the beginning of a period of heavier rain 
and higher snow levels -- in the 6000 to 7000 feet range -- that will 
probably continue through Tuesday night. The north part of the 
forecast area will receive the most precipitation...and especially 
the north Cascades. Some of the mesoscale model runs show as much as 
6 inches there during the 48-hour period ending late Tuesday 
night. Mcdonnal 


Long term...confidence in the long term forecast for Wednesday 
through Saturday is not very high. The broad upper ridge will 
probably move east of the area on Wednesday...leaving western 
Washington near the confluence of a moist southwest fetch and a 
cooler drier northerly flow over western Canada. Earlier model runs 
generally favored the idea that the drier northerly flow would 
prevail Thanksgiving day and Friday. More recent runs...especially 
of the GFS...show the wetter pattern developing. We increased probability of precipitation 
into the likely to categorical range for Wednesday...but we have 
decided to stand pate on the forecast for Thanksgiving day through 
Saturday. Mcdonnal 


&& 


Hydrology...models show around 3 to 6 inches of precipitation over 
the north Cascades during the 48 hour period ending late Tuesday 
night. The snow level should be 6000 to 7000 feet. According to the 
latest river forecasts from northwest river forecast center...this 
could drive the Nooksack river to within about a foot of flood 
stage. In addition some models -- especially the NAM -- spread the 
precipitation further south in the Cascades...with 3 to 5 inches in 
the basins as far south as the Snohomish. That scenario would drive 
decent rises on the Snoqualmie...tolt...Skykomish...Snohomish...and 
stillaguamish rivers. 


At this point I would say there is a slight threat of minor flooding 
on at least the Nooksack and possibly the other rivers mentioned 
above. We need to see what the next run of the river models will 
show later today. Mcdonnal 


&& 


Aviation...a cold front over the offshore waters early this morning 
will move onto the coast early this morning then shift well east of 
the area midday. Westerly flow aloft will become northwesterly this 
afternoon. The air mass is moist and unstable and will gradually dry 
behind the front later this afternoon and this evening. 


Radar and satellite data show a rather vigorous frontal system over 
the offshore waters early this morning. The front is moving rapidly 
eastward and will move onto the North Washington coast by 15z and 
through the interior of western Washington by 18z. Lightning 
detection system data shows several strikes extending south-southwest from the 
central Vancouver Island coast into the offshore waters. These thunderstorms 
are expected to remain over the coastal waters early this morning 
but may impact the immediate coastline as the front moves inland. 


Following the front...expect scattered showers with ceilings and 
precipitation becoming increasingly tied to the terrain and a Puget Sound 
sound convergence zone. Shower activity will taper off later this 
afternoon and this evening as the air mass stabilizes. 


Expect ceilings generally broken-ovc020-025 ahead of the front this morning 
and with Post frontal showers and a Puget Sound sound convergence zone 
from late this morning through this evening. Outside of scattered 
shower activity later this morning and this afternoon...expect VFR 
conditions with clearing at times. Visible will mainly be 5sm or 
more...but will occasionally fall to 2-4 sm in heavier precipitation 
with the front and in heavier Post frontal showers. Albrecht 


Ksea...expect ceilings 020-025 with increasing -ra early this morning. 
Wind will increase to S 14-18kt with g28 knots as the front approaches 
the terminal. Frontal passage can be expected between 16z and 17z and will be 
followed by SW wind 10-12 knots with a few gusts to 20 knots through early 
afternoon. Winds will gradually diminish later this afternoon. Some 
clearing at times is likely behind the front after 17z. West-southwest wind 40 
knots at 5000 feet will turn to west 45k behind the front midday then will 
diminish late this afternoon and evening. Albrecht 


&& 


Marine...winds are increasing ahead of a front over the offshore 
waters that is approaching the coastal waters early this morning. 
Isolated thunderstorms are being observed with the front offshore that 
extends southwestward from the central coast of Vancouver Island. 


Small Craft Advisory conditions are developing over all of the 
waters this morning except the central Strait. The trend of the most 
recent hrrr model solutions is to develop gales over the coastal 
waters and into the West Entrance of the Strait as the front moves 
through this morning...so a Gale Warning was issued for those 
waters. A Gale Warning remains in effect for the central and eastern 
Strait of Juan Delaware fuca for a surge of strong Post frontal onshore 
flow middle morning through early this evening. 


Winds will rapidly relax this evening...and weak high pressure will give 
light winds to the waters by early Monday morning. 


Flow will shift to southeasterly and increase somewhat as a warm front 
approaches the waters from the SW on Monday. Then the warm front is 
expected to pull up stationary somewhere from between central 
Vancouver Island and the Washington waters. Expect rather strong SW 
flow on the order of 20 to 30 knots to the south of where this front 
stalls Monday night through Wednesday. Albrecht 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...Winter Storm Warning Cascades above 3000 feet. 
Pz...Gale Warning coastal waters and entire Strait of Juan Delaware fuca. 
Small Craft Advisory remaining waters. 
Small Craft Advisory for rough Grays Harbor bar conditions.
