NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
922 am PDT Thursday Jul 30 2015 


Synopsis...a strong upper level ridge will be over the Pacific 
northwest through Saturday. The ridge will weaken and shift a little 
east Sunday into Monday. An upper level trough will move over the 
area by the middle of next week. 


&& 


Short term... 


Strong upper level ridging over Texas and Oklahoma continues to 
expand and retrograde toward New Mexico and the four courners region 
of the Desert Southwest today. The latest GFS solution continues to 
raise 500 mb heights to around 590 dam this afternoon in response to 
the synoptic scale pattern shift. At the surface...the thermal 
trough that was previously expected to develop from the Olympics 
down to the Willamette Valley has actually formed just off the 
Washington coast. In response...cross Cascade gradients are 
none...Bellingham to Williams Lake has lowered to around -4 mb...and 
kuil-kbli is -1.4 mb. Northerly pressure gradients through the Puget Sound 
sound area is about the same as yesterday at this time and 
temperatures are running about 4 degree f hotter than this time 
yesterday. At 850 mb...temperatures will rise to around 21c this 
aternoon and again Friday afternoon. So...we appear to be on track 
for a high at SeaTac today around 95 degree. The GFS MOS guidance for 
Shelton is an eye popping 100 this afternoon. It appears that Friday 
will be equally hot. Low temperatures tonight will cool into the 50s 
in outlying areas...but hilltops and urban areas will have a hard 
time dropping below 65 degree. If there is one piece of good 
news...dewpoint temperatures are in the low to middle 50s this 
morning...and will fall into the middle to upper 40s this afternoon as 
very dry air aloft gets mixed downward with some low level 
instability and some afternoon breezes. 


We may see some slight cooling on Saturday as 850 mb temperatures 
fall to around 18c and heights aloft fall into the middle 580 dam 
range. But it appears that Saturday will make 4 90-plus degree days 
in a row at SeaTac and will add to the annual record. The heat 
advisory that is in effect through Saturday evening for the Seattle- 
Bellevue-Tacoma metropolitan areas...the east Puget Sound sound lowlands...and 
the southwest interior will obviously be maintained. 


Current forecasts look like they are in good shape. No morning 
update is planned. Albrecht 


Long term...from the previous long term discussion...most models 
weaken the high pressure ridge Sunday and Monday. 500 mb heights 
continue to trend lower and each day will have increasing onshore 
gradients. Areas near the foothills and parts of the SW interior may 
still reach close to 90 on Sunday...but most spots will fall back 
into the 80s...with 70s along the coast...Strait...and north interior. A 
stronger onshore push is likely Sunday evening which should result 
in further cooling. By Tuesday...highs should be closer to average 
for this time of year as a marine air mass prevails. A trough off 
the coast will approach on Wednesday with a chance of 
showers...especially west of Puget Sound sound and across the north. Mercer 


&& 


Climate...Seattle is on the verge of setting the record for the all- 
time warmest month. This includes the federal building records which 
go back to the 1890s. The warmest month on record for Seattle is 
August 1967 with an average temperature of 71.1 degrees. Through the 
29th the average temperature for July 2015 is 70.7 degrees. Seattle 
needs to record an average temperature of at least 76.5 degrees the 
next two days to break the record. 


Seattle also has a chance to break the record for the warmest 
average monthly low temperature. The current record is 59.9 degrees 
set in August 2013. Through the 29th the average low temperature for 
July 2015 is 59.7 degrees. 


It will not be a record for the warmest average monthly high 
temperature. The record is 83.7 degrees set in August 1967. Through 
the 29th the average high temperature for July 2015 is 81.8 degrees. 
Even with a couple of hot days ahead...the average high temperature 
for the month will only increase .8 to 1 degree. July 2015 will end 
being the second warmest month on record in terms of average high 
temperature. 


Today will be the 10th day this year with a high of 90 degrees or 
more. This will break the record for the most number of 90 degree 
plus days in a year. The old record was 9 set in 1958. 


Today will be the 8th day this month with a high of 90 degrees or 
more. This will break the record for most 90 degree plus days in a 
month. The old record of 7 was set in July 1958. Felton 


&& 


Aviation...an upper ridge will continue over the region. Continued westerly 
flow aloft and low level northwest flow. VFR conditions will prevail 
across the entire area. 


Ksea...VFR. Continued northerly winds. 


&& 


Marine... 
high pressure offshore with lower pressure east of the Cascades will keep 
the flow onshore through Friday. The flow will become briefly 
northerly or offshore early Friday due to a thermally induced area of 
low pressure trying to set up along the Washington coast. 


Onshore flow will strengthen this weekend...leading to the 
possibility of gale force winds over the central and eastern 
Strait of Juan Delaware fuca on Sunday. It looks like the threat of gale 
force winds over these areas will be higher on Monday. 


&& 


Fire weather...looking at a few days of critical fire weather ahead 
for nearly all of western Washington. First...a very dry air mass 
has settled over western Washington and will remain in place through 
Saturday. This raises concern for both The Lowlands and the 
mountains. The dry air mass is deep...with 850-700 mb layer average 
relative humidity will be running as low 10 percent between now and 
Saturday. Middle-level Haines index will reach a value of 6 at times 
over SW Washington and from about I-90 on south over the Cascades. 
This indicates not only a dry air mass...but also the added effect 
of middle-level instability. With the added concern of elevated 
mountain zones rising into the more unstable air aloft...a red flag 
warning for dry and unstable conditions will remain in effect over 
the mountain zones through Friday evening...with the possibility of 
extending the warning into Saturday. This kind of air mass supports 
active fire behavior and rapid growth on existing fires. Haner 




&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...heat advisory in effect from noon Thursday until 9 PM Saturday 
for parts of the Puget Sound sound region and southwest interior. 


Red flag warning in effect until 10 PM PDT Friday for the 
north and central Cascades and parts of the Olympic 
Mountains. 


Pz...Small Craft Advisory in effect from 5 PM this afternoon until 
11 PM tonight for the coastal waters from James Island to 
Cape Shoalwater out to 10 nm.
