NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
830 PM PDT Thursday Apr 24 2014 


Synopsis...isolated to scattered showers will continue tonight and 
Friday with an upper trough over the area. A frontal system will 
bring another round of rainy weather Saturday night into Sunday. An 
upper ridge will bring warmer and drier weather Tuesday onwards. 


&& 


Short term...showers have begun to taper this evening with the loss 
of daytime heating. Isolated showers will continue tonight and 
Friday morning...then there should be enough instability to cause an 
uptick in shower activity again Friday afternoon with an upper 
trough overhead. Once again...showers should decrease diurnally 
Friday evening...and pretty much come to an end after midnight as 
very weak high pressure aloft builds over the area and the air mass 
becomes more stable. Models remain consistent showing the next 
frontal system spreading rain to the coast Saturday afternoon and 
into the interior Saturday evening. Rain will change to showers 
Sunday morning as the front moves inland. Sunday will be another 
cool and showery day with moist onshore flow behind the front. 
Schneider 


Long term...previous discussion...a weak warm front may clip 
western Washington on Monday for a chance of rain. Confidence is low 
and any precipitation looks light at this point. Models then build a ridge 
over the Pacific northwest Tuesday and Wednesday for a dry and warm period of weather. 
The low level flow will flip offshore with highs in the 60s to 
70s...along with mostly sunny skies. The current forecast is nudged 
toward the European model (ecmwf) and Canadian models which both keep high pressure over 
the region through next weekend. The GFS breaks down the ridge on 
Thursday but this solution looks like an outlier for now. 33 


&& 


Hydrology...river flooding remains unlikely for the next 7 days. 


The exception remains the North Fork of the stillaguamish river east 
of the sunrise 530 landslide near Oso where a Flood Warning remains in 
effect until further notice. Flooding continues for this river as a 
result of water pooled behind the debris dam that partially blocks 
the river. 


At 8 PM...the North Fork of the stillaguamish near Arlington was at 
5.7 feet...or 4560 cfs. The North Fork of the stillaguamish river near 
Oso was at 217.5 feet at 2880 cfs. The pool east of the slide was 
283.1 feet this evening. The river has crested from heavy rains last 
night and will continue to recede. 


Expect isolated to scattered showers in the region tonight and 
Friday with rainfall amounts up to 0.25 inches through Friday 
evening. A cold front Saturday night may produce another 0.50 
inches. Otherwise dry weather is forecast throughout much of next 
week. 


&& 


Aviation...moderate southerly flow aloft tonight will become light 
Friday as an upper level trough moves over the area. The air mass is 
moist and unstable with scattered showers. The air mass will 
stabilize overnight and there will be some areas of clearing. Gusty 
southwest winds will ease this evening. The presence of the upper 
level trough will lead to some instability and shower activity again 
on Friday afternoon. Ceilings will be mostly VFR but MVFR 2-3k feet 
ceilings are possible in showers. 


Ksea...mostly VFR ceilings overnight except brief MVFR around 
showers. Gusty southwest wind 10g20kt easing tonight by 06z. South 
to southwest wind 10 knots or less late tonight through Friday 
afternoon. 


&& 


Marine...small craft advisories remain in effect over all waters as 
gusty southwest winds 15-30 knots continue. Winds will ease this evening 
and most areas should be below 20 knots by 06z tonight. 


After a lull in the action Friday...another front will spread Small 
Craft Advisory strength winds over the area Saturday night. 27 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...Flood Warning remains in effect for the North Fork of the 
stillaguamish river east of the sunrise 530 landslide. 


Pz...Small Craft Advisory all waters. 
Small Craft Advisory for rough Grays Harbor bar.
