NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion...retransmission 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
944 am PDT Tuesday Jun 30 2015 


Synopsis...a broad upper level ridge will remain over the Pacific 
northwest through Friday...allowing very warm and dry weather to 
continue. A weak dry upper level trough will move across the region 
this weekend with little change in the weather. 


&& 


Short term...onshore flow overnight spread low level stratus across 
the SW interior...central Puget Sound sound and the Strait of Juan Delaware fuca 
this morning. As usual the stratus is expected to burn off by 
midday. Onshore flow will increase again tonight but models indicate 
it will weaken rapidly so that there will be much less stratus 
forming over the interior Wednesday morning. 


A broad upper level ridge will remain over the western U.S. Through 
Friday...centered over the SW U.S. West flow aloft will prevail over 
the pacnw during the period with a series of weak upper level 
shortwaves embedded in the flow traversing the area. The weak 
shortwave trough moving ashore over the central b.C. Coast this 
morning will suppress the broad ridge slightly with 500 mb heights 
over West Washington lowering to around 5850 meters this afternoon. The main 
impact will be to cause some slight general air mass cooling which 
will keep highs in the middle 70s to middle 80s today. 


A weak upper level shortwave ridge will cross the area Wednesday 
allowing the ridge to rebuild a bit with 500 mb heights rising to 
around 5880 meters. This should allow maximum temperatures to rebound into the 
upper 70s and 80s. 


Another weaker upper level shortwave trough will follow on 
Thursday...crossing West Washington around 12z. This one will have even less 
impact as maximum temperatures are expected to warm another degree or so. 


A surface ridge centered about 600 nm offshore will maintain weak 
low level onshore flow over West Washington through Friday. The passing upper 
level shortwaves will weakly modulate the strength of the onshore 
flow. Coastal temperatures will be moderated by the onshore flow but 
the cooling effects will be much less over the interior. It does not 
look like there will be much stratus inland the next couple of days. 
Kam 


Long term...previous discussion from the 400 am afd...extended 
models still in good general agreement keeping the upper level ridge 
over western Washington through the period. The GFS is a little more 
aggressive with the shortwaves moving over the top of the ridge over 
the weekend but even with this 500 mb heights on the GFS do not drop 
below the lower 580 dms. Some small differences in the surface 
pattern in the models come Sunday with the European model (ecmwf) finally turning the 
low level flow offshore while the GFS keeps the low level flow flat. 
Current forecast follows the slightly cooler GFS solution which 
stays with the idea of highs mostly in the 80s over the interior and 
70s along the coast through the weekend. If the European model (ecmwf) verifies 
forecast maximum temperatures will be around 5 degrees too cool on Sunday with 
lower 90s common from Seattle southward. Differences in the models 
continue on Monday with the European model (ecmwf) having a much higher amplitude 
ridge over the area and GFS showing more low level onshore flow. The 
forecast for Monday is a compromise of the two solutions. With the 
differences in the models will leave the Monday forecast alone.

Climate...with only one day left in the month Seattle will end up 
with the warmest June on record. Through the 29th the average high 
for the month is 78.6 degrees. The old record for the month was 75.8 
degrees in 1992. With the warm low temperatures the last few days 
Seattle is now on pace to break the record for the warmest average 
low temperature for the month of June. Through the 29th the average 
low for the month has been 56.3 degrees. The record was 55.7 degrees 
set in 2013. The average temperature for the month through the 29th 
is 67.5 degrees. The old record was 64.9 degrees set in 1992. 


To put this record warm June in perspective...the current average 
maximum temperature of 78.6 degrees would be the 12th warmest July on 
record and the 9th warmest August on record. Records started at sea- 
tac in 1945. 


In addition to the warm weather it has also been a very dry June 
with only 0.23 inches of rain at sea-tac. This will be the 4th 
driest June on record. The may 1st through June 30th rainfall total 
is 0.81 inches. This will be the driest on record. The old record 
was 1.26 inches in 1992. 


Numerous other records will be broken across the area this month. 
The records will be summarized tomorrow in a public information 
statement. Felton

Aviation...high pressure will weaken today as a trough passes north 
of western Washington. The ridge will strengthen tonight and 
Wednesday. Light westerly flow aloft. Low level onshore flow will 
increase late today and continue tonight. The air mass is mainly dry 
except for moisture in the shallow surface-based marine layer. 


Marine stratus with bases near 400-500 feet covers much of the 
western Washington lowlands. This should burn back to the coastal 
waters this afternoon. There will probably be less stratus tonight 
and Wednesday morning. 


Ksea...stratus with ceilings below 500 feet and surface visible down to 1/2sm 
at times through 17z. After 17z....cigs should start to rise and 
scatter out by 18z. South to southwest wind 3-6 knots this 
morning...gradually shifting to the northwest late this 
afternoon...then north to northeast tonight. 


&& 


Marine...high pressure well offshore and thermally induced low 
pressure east of the Cascades will maintain onshore flow today. It 
should increase late today in response to a weak upper level system 
moving through...and gale force westerlies are likely late this 
afternoon and tonight in the central Strait of Juan Delaware fuca and East 
Entrance Strait. In addition Small Craft Advisory winds are likely 
over the outer coastal waters and in Admiralty Inlet. 


Onshore flow will probably ease somewhat on Wednesday and strengthen 
again Thursday. Then it should ease again Friday and Saturday as 
thermally induced low pressure develops over western Washington.
