NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
930 am PDT Friday Oct 24 2014 


Synopsis...a deep low will reach the coast this afternoon and then 
fill as it moves northeast. Rain and windy conditions will occur 
this evening over western Washington. Sunday and Monday will be 
showery. Another weather system will arrive Tuesday. Wet and breezy 
weather is likely at times through the end of the week. 


&& 


Short term...a deep low off the southern Oregon coast will move 
northeast today...reaching the Washington coast this afternoon and 
moving inland over western Washington tonight. Windy conditions will 
develop over most of the area tonight...easing late. Showers will 
follow Sunday and Monday with the next system arriving Monday night. 


The depth and track of the incoming low pressure center vary 
slightly in the latest models. Most agree on the basic idea that the 
low will move onto the coast around kqhm 23z-01z...then fill and 
move northeast until it crosses Admiralty Inlet around 03z. Windy 
conditions will develop on the coast this afternoon and spread 
inland this evening. 


The strength of the wind over the Seattle areas will depend on the 
north-south pressure gradient. The kpdx-kbli gradient varies from 
about 10 to about 14 mb in the latest models. In general high wind 
starts around 12 or 13 mb. For now have kept the idea of around a 12 
mb gradient for a few hours this evening...implying high end 
advisory winds or 20-35 miles per hour gusting to 50 miles per hour with perhaps a few 
exposed areas going a little higher. A Wind Advisory covers most of 
western Washington except for the far north. 


As far as weather...a rain band is moving through the metropolitan area 
this morning but radar indicates there could be a break of a few 
hours. Rainfall amounts over the interior will be fairly light but 
will be heavier on the coast. Rain will fall everywhere tonight 
before turning more showery late. A decent convergence zone is 
likely late tonight and Sunday morning. The pattern remains showery 
the rest of Sunday...with some showers still around Monday. Burke 


Long term...previous discussion...the next system will approach the 
Pacific northwest on Tuesday with the advancing warm front bringing rain back 
into western Washington. Probability of precipitation were boosted as models mostly agree on this and 
rain shadowing will not be an issue. A 985-990 mb surface low will 
start to fill as it tracks east-NE across northern Vancouver Island by 
Tuesday night. This system will produce strong southeast pressure gradients 
so Wind Advisory level winds are probable from around Whidbey Island 
northward and along the coast. Gradients never turn southwesterly through Puget Sound 
sound so much less wind expected here. This will be a wet system 
with 24 hour rain amounts of 2-4 inches likely in the Olympics and 
Cascades...especially north. 


There will be a lull in showers between systems on Wednesday. 
However...it will not be completely dry. The 00z GFS/European model (ecmwf) are in 
better agreement on bringing another system into the area on 
Thursday. But models are implying this system will split...so it may 
not be well organized. There will be a chance of rain at times the 
rest of the week. 


&& 


Hydrology...the Skokomish River appears to be bottoming out near 15 
feet this morning. It will rise again in response to heavy rain 
today and tonight. It is possible the river will get close to flood 
stage late today or tonight. For now the forecast takes the stage at 
Potlatch to between 15.5 and 16 feet. Flood stage is 16.5 feet. 


A break in the rain will allow the skokomish to recede river Monday. 
Another front Monday night and Tuesday will bring 2-4 inches of rain 
to the skokomish basin. Will need to keep a watch on this but the 
current forecast keeps the river below flood stage. 


Otherwise...flooding on other rivers is unlikely over the next 7 
days. Burke 


&& 


Aviation...southwest flow aloft will continue over the area 
today...then veer to westerly tonight as a vigorous frontal system 
and its upper trough moves through western Washington. The air mass 
will be moist and somewhat unstable. 


We have mainly VFR conditions across the forecast area this 
morning...with locally lower conditions in rain and fog. Conditions 
will deteriorate late this afternoon and evening as the approaching 
frontal system reaches the area...and as moist onshore flow follows 
the front. There could also be isolated thunderstorms along the 
coast...but they are unlikely over the western Washington interior. 
Winds will increase as the surface low associated with the frontal 
system tracks northeast across western Washington this evening with 
areas of sustained 20 to 30 knots winds and gusts to 45 miles per hour. 


Ksea...winds will continue to be variable to 15 knots today...but they 
should trend toward northeast during the day as a surface low 
approaches western Washington from the southwest. Winds will 
increase rapidly early this evening as the low tracks northeast 
across the forecast area...becoming southwest 20-30 knots gusting 40 
knots. Winds will probably peak around midnight. Mcdonnal 


&& 


Marine...a 992 mb low will move NE across the coastal waters late 
today...making landfall along the central Washington coast late this 
afternoon. Gale warnings are in effect for the coastal waters for 
this. The low will track northeast across western Washington this 
evening...and southwest flow will increase rapidly in its wake. Gale 
force west or southwest winds are likely for the coastal 
waters...the entire Strait of Juan Delaware fuca...and Puget Sound sound and 
Hood Canal. High-end Small Craft Advisory winds are a good bet for 
Admiralty Inlet and the northern inland waters. 


High pressure will move across the forecast area Sunday. A warm front 
will reach the area late Monday...with a cold front moving through 
from the west Monday night and Tuesday. This feature will likely 
produce gales over the coastal waters and some inland waters. 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 


Washington...Wind Advisory for the coast...southwest interior...east Puget Sound 
sound lowlands...and Puget Sound sound/Hood Canal area. 
Pz...Gale Warning coastal waters...Strait of Juan Delaware fuca...Puget Sound 
sound and Hood Canal.
