NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
340 am PDT Wednesday Oct 22 2014 


Synopsis...a strong frontal system will move through western 
Washington today. Heavy rain will fall in the Olympics and north 
Cascades. The rain will turn to showers tonight and Thursday. 
Another low pressure system will reach the area late in the week. 


&& 


Short term...a High Wind Warning is in effect for the San Juans and 
western Whatcom this morning for south winds gusting to 60 miles per hour. This 
high wind is caused by a tight surface low passing into southern 
British Columbia. South winds will ease by middle morning. 


The first wave of heavy rain continues to pass through western Washington 
this morning. Three inches fell over the north coast with 2-4 in the 
Olympics. This band will shift east into the interior and Cascades 
this morning...with heavy rain ending over the Olympics. It looks 
like the second wave of heavy rain will shift south...clipping the 
central and south Cascades tonight. It looks like 1-3 inches are 
expected in the Cascades...but overall rain amounts are less in the 
Cascades compared to previous model solutions. This front has been 
pretty progressive and this lessens the threat for river flooding. 
As for the interior...expect rain at times through tonight with 1-2 
inches of rain. Temperatures near 60 degrees this afternoon. 


Moist southwest flow will continue Thursday and Thursday night for 
more showers across the region. But heavy rains are not expected. 
Probability of precipitation were raised as we should see off-and-on showers throughout much 
of the day. 


We may see a brief break in the weather Friday morning...then more rain 
will spread north into western Washington Friday afternoon and evening. 


Expect more wet and windy weather on Saturday. The main impact will 
be the wind and the tracking of a surface low off the Washington coast. 
Models bring a 980s mb low into western Washington Sat afternoon with high 
wind possible...especially along the coast. Strong winds may also 
occur in the interior as this system moves inland Sat night. Will 
need to watch this system more closely as it evolves. 33 


Long term...the air mass will remain cool and unstable on Sunday as 
an upper level trough moves inland. A ridge will then pass overhead 
on Monday for a break in the weather...will likely see probability of precipitation decreased 
over this period. Then more rain and blustery weather by Tuesday as 
another wet Pacific frontal system moves in. 33 


&& 


Hydrology...a Flood Warning is in effect for the Skokomish River in 
Mason County. The river is rising and is expected to reach minor 
flood stage this morning. 


Heavy rain will fall in the Cascades this morning and afternoon with 
1-3 inches expected. But overall precipitation amounts are less compared to 
previous solutions. Expect sharp rises on the rivers...but it 
appears flooding is unlikely. 


&& 


Aviation...a 995 mb surface low tracking NE over central Vancouver 
Island will drag a front through western Washington this morning. This system 
will bring strong flow aloft to western Washington...becoming light to moderate 
SW flow tonight. Moist and generally stable. Rain at times. Ceilings 
mostly VFR but occasionally MVFR with heavier precipitation. 


Ksea...southerly winds 12-15 west/ gusts 25-30 knots...easing later this 
morning. Rain at times. Ceilings mostly VFR above 3k feet. Visible 4-5 sm at 
times during heavier precipitation. 


&& 


Marine...strong southeast pressure gradients will produce high end gale 
force winds over the coastal waters...entrances to the Strait...and 
inland waters north of Puget Sound sound early this morning. Small craft winds 
to 30 knots are expected in Puget Sound sound/central Strait...continuing 
into the afternoon in Puget Sound sound. Winds will ease first along the 
coast after 5-6 am...then across the interior after 8-9 am. Seas 
over 15 feet are also expected today along with rough bar 
conditions. 


There will be a relative lull in the stormy weather in the middle of 
the week...then another strong weather system will affect the waters 
Friday and Saturday. A deep surface low is expected to track through 
the waters during this time but there is still a lot of uncertainty 
with how strong the low will be and where it will go. Dtm 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...High Wind Warning San Juans and western Whatcom until 9 am this 
morning. 
Wind Advisory coast until 8 am this morning. 
Wind Advisory western Skagit and Admiralty Inlet until 9 am 
this morning. 
Flood Watch Mason County. 


Pz...Gale Warning coastal waters...entrances to the Strait of Juan
