NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...corrected 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
320 PM PDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


Corrected to add the aviation and marine segments. 


Synopsis...a moist low pressure system will bring locally heavy 
rain to the area through early Friday morning. Look for the steady 
rain to taper off to scattered showers on Friday behind the cold 
front. Unsettled conditions will persist over the area this 
weekend. Alas...another period of significant rainfall is expected 
next week. 


&& 


Short term... 
a plume of subtropical moisture was directed at western Washington at 
this time. This combined with strong upper forcing and orographic 
lift have resulted in periods of heavy rain on the south facing 
slopes of the olympic range today. Rain has been falling locally 
at a rate of 0.25 to 0.3 inch per hour at times on the Olympics. 
During the past 6 hours...ending around 315 PM PDT...about 1 to 
1.5 inches of rain has fallen locally on the Olympics. 


The cold front was about 85 miles offshore based on satellite 
imagery and limited marine observations. This front will continue 
moving slowly east and will move across the County Warning Area late tonight or 
early Friday. The steady rain will become light behind the front 
before tapering off to scattered showers Friday afternoon as a cooler 
air mass begins to invade the region. 


Look for the upper trough to move over the Pacific northwest Friday 
night and then move slowly east on Saturday. The trough is 
anticipated to be east of the County Warning Area Saturday evening. Per satellite 
imagery...the air mass associated with the upper low was quite 
unstable...thus have bumped up probability of precipitation for Friday night and included a 
chance of showers over the entire County Warning Area for Saturday. 


A dirty ridge will prevail over the region on Sunday. It also 
appeared that a warm front will approach the County Warning Area during the day. 
Decided to go with climatology probability of precipitation for Sunday. Cannot rule out a threat 
of light rain over the entire County Warning Area due to weak warm air advection 
or isentropic lift. 


Long term... 
confidence in this period was not high due to continued 
disagreement and lack continuity in the medium range solutions. It 
did appear that western Washington will probably receive significant 
rainfall during this period. The medium range solutions seemed to 
be converging on the idea of a significant rainfall producer 
impacting the County Warning Area during the Monday/Tuesday time frame. Have kept probability of precipitation 
above climatology during the extended period. 


&& 


Hydrology... 
rain has been falling locally at a rate of 0.25 to 0.3 inch per 
hour at times on the olympic range this afternoon. This has 
resulted in steep rises on the Skokomish River. Another 1.5 to 
2.5 inches of rain is forecast on the south facing slopes of the 
olympic range during the 18-hour period ending at 11 am PDT Friday. 
This should be enough to cause the Skokomish River to rise above 
the flood stage of 16.5 feet late tonight or early Friday morning. 


At this time...it appeared that the Nooksack river will remain 
below flood stage during this event but will need to keep an eye 
on the gages in case more rain falls than predicted. 


Flooding is not expected on the remaining rivers the next 7 days. 


&& 


Aviation...SW flow aloft. The air mass is stable and moist... 
becoming more unstable along the coast after 15z Friday morning. 


Satellite and radar imagery show a slow moving frontal system 
drifting toward the coast this afternoon. Light to moderate rain has 
spread across the forecast area today...with leading to areas of 
MVFR cigs/vsbys. Offshore pressure gradients are weakening...so 
expect more widespread MVFR to develop overnight tonight as winds 
become lighter. Cooler air aloft behind the front will move onshore 
by early Friday...ushering in a more unstable air mass with a slight 
chance of thunderstorms for the coast Friday. Weagle/albrecht 


Ksea...mainly light rain with occasional MVFR conditions expected 
through 02z. East-southeast winds around 10 knots will decrease this evening... 
likely allowing 2000-3000 feet ceilings to become more persistent 
overnight. -Ra to continue overnight with visibilities 3-5sm at times. 
Weagle/albrecht 


&& 


Marine...Small Craft Advisory south winds continue ahead of the 
front this afternoon with gusts to 30 knots in the coastal waters and 
locally within the inland waters. Pressure gradients are easing... 
so expect winds to ease below Small Craft Advisory criteria by this 
evening. Seas are mainly wind-driven along the coastal waters at the 
moment...but will transition to a building west swell Friday. Seas may 
reach 10 feet in the coastal waters by Friday afternoon. 


A weak secondary trough will approach the coast Friday afternoon... 
possibly enhancing S winds again. However winds are expected to 
remain below Small Craft Advisory criteria...mainly 10-15 knots. Weak 
high pressure will build across western Washington Saturday... 
leading to fairly light conditions. However more active weather is 
on the way Sunday through early next week...with more frontal 
systems expected to move across the waters. Weagle 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...Flood Watch in effect from 6 PM PDT this evening through late 
Friday night for Mason County. 


Pz...Small Craft Advisory in effect until 5 PM this afternoon for 
all waters except the Admiralty Inlet and Puget Sound sound/Hood 
Canal.
