NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
900 PM PDT Thursday may 28 2015 


Synopsis...the Pacific northwest will remain between a weak upper 
low to the north over central British Columbia and an upper ridge to 
the south. Westerly flow aloft will prevail with generally dry 
conditions and above normal high temperatures through the weekend. 
It will be unstable over the mountains with a threat of afternoon 
and evening thunderstorms Friday. Another upper level low will move 
into the Pacific northwest Sunday night and Monday bringing showers 
and the potential for thunderstorms to much of the forecast area. 
High pressure will return by middle week. 


&& 


Short term...upper level low pressure will shift southward tonight over 
central b.C. With light westerly flow aloft and stronger low level 
onshore flow. The air mass remains unstable over the Cascades and 
Olympics early this evening with the most active area of 
thunderstorms over the Cascades of Pierce and Lewis counties. While 
locally moderate to heavy rain is likely occuring with these 
storms...cells should diminish over the next hour with loss of 
diurnal heating. The gfs40 forecast sub zero lifted indice's actually encompass 
areas further westward Friday afternoon. It could be somewhat active over 
the Olympics and Cascades...but pushing off to the east early Friday 
evening as westerly flow increases. The forecast will be updated to 
account for mountain thunderstorms. 


It was a warm day across parts of interior western Washington with highs in the 
low 80s around much of Puget Sound sound and the SW interior. Light westerly 
flow kept temperatures cool along the coast...Strait...and around 
the entrance to the Strait. Onshore gradients are somewhat stronger 
this evening which should continue into Friday. This should cut down 
high temperatures a bit across the interior...but less so around the 
central sound eastward toward the foothills where the warmest highs near 
80 will likely occur. The hrrr shows stratus pushing inland reaching 
Shelton but not expanding much further inland due in part to 
increasing cirrus. The last visible picture of the day backs up this 
idea with stratus not yet pushing through the Chehalis gap. 


The ridge builds a bit stronger northward over the region on Saturday. 
Onshore flow strengthens and the increased marine influence should 
knock high temperatures down a few more degrees but still in the 70s 
over much of the interior. It should be mostly sunny across the 
interior by afternoon but staying cloudy along the coast. 


A transition to unsettled weather will begin on Sunday. An 
upper low off the northern California coast will eject NE clipping western Washington. Models 
differ on timing and details but showers will probably develop 
across the area during the Sunday through Monday period. The flow 
aloft will become diffluent ahead of the low on Sunday with the 
potential for elevated convection above the marine layer over western Washington 
lowlands. If the upper low comes in negative tilt like the gfs40 
shows Sunday night and Monday...dynamic forcing could be sufficient 
for thunderstorms across western Washington including The Lowlands. There is 
still a lot of uncertainty as to the timing and track of the low so 
no changes will be made at this point. Mercer 


Long term...no changes from previous discussion...medium range 
models continue to highlight building heights over the region on 
Sunday Sunday ahead of a negative-tilted upper level trough 
approaching from the southwest. This will likely boost high 
temperatures Sunday afternoon as well as help pull moisture up from 
the south and bring an increasing threat of showers late Sunday 
afternoon and evening over the south...spreading north through the 
night. The flow pattern is a little more conducive to thunderstorms 
especially as the upper low will moves inland Monday. Showers and 
clouds will linger over the area Tuesday and Tuesday night with 
highs in the 60s. And lows in the middle to lower 50s. Weak high 
pressure aloft will return to the region by midweek bringing drier 
conditions and a typical pattern of morning clouds and afternoon 
sunshine. 


&& 


Aviation...the air mass is mostly dry and somewhat stable with 
light westerly flow aloft. The air mass is more unstable over the 
Cascades...but early evening thunderstorms will dissipate quickly this 
evening with loss of daytime heating. 


Marine stratus with patchy fog is sitting over the waters of the 
Pacific. The stratus will push eastward into the Strait of Juan Delaware 
fuca overnight and through the Chehalis gap to around kshn and kolm. 
The hrrr and GFS show less extensive stratus and fog inland as 
compared to this morning as cirrus coming into the area from the SW 
inhibits radiational cooling to some degree. Will keep fog and 
stratus out of the bli...sea...and bfi terminals through Thursday morning 
but continue to show vcfg or tempo stratus at olm and pae. Stratus 
that does occur will be low based and shallow with bases 004-006 
mean sea level. Tops will be generally remain below 1000 feet. Visibility 
restrictions in fog will occur where the stratus intersects the 
ground. Stratus will all burn back to the Pacific coastline by 18z. 


The air mass will be slightly more unstable aloft across the area on 
Friday than today with lifted indicates -1 to -3 during the late 
afternoon and evening hours. Moisture and organized lift is 
lacking...so the threat for thunderstorms will be limited to the 
Cascade crest area 21z-04z with only a 10 percent chance that a 
buildup over the Olympics will give an isolated thunderstorm there. The 
Lowlands are expected to be dry Friday afternoon. Albrecht 


Ksea...sct-bkn cirrus with north wind 8-10 knots easing to NE 5 knots after 
07z then becoming light and variable in the morning. A northwest wind to 10 
knots will resume after 10z. Expect stratus to remain west of the terminal 
area Friday morning. Albrecht 


&& 


Marine...high pressure centered offshore with lower pressure inland 
will give light to moderate onshore flow through the weekend. Small 
Craft Advisory conditions can be expected during the late afternoon 
and overnight hours in the central and eastern portions of the 
Strait of Juan Delaware fuca. 


Areas of fog over the coastal waters will push in through the Strait 
of Juan Delaware fuca overnight. Morning fog will be quite patchy in the 
inland waters during the morning hours on Friday. Albrecht 


&& 




Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory central and eastern Strait of Juan Delaware fuca 
through 6 am PDT Friday.
