NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
940 PM PDT Wednesday Oct 22 2014 


Synopsis...an upper trough will direct showers into western 
Washington through Thursday. The showers will decrease Thursday 
night. Friday will be a dry day with weak high pressure and offshore 
flow. Another weather system will reach the area Saturday afternoon 
and evening...with blustery winds developing Saturday night. 


&& 


Short term...an upper trough is just offshore...sending showers 
into the region. A surface trough moved through western Washington this 
evening with locally heavy showers and blustery winds...olm-bli was 
+4mb at 9pm. Another surface trough will reach the coast around 8am 
Thursday and move through the interior of western Washington through midday. The showers 
will decrease Thursday night. Temporary ridging moves over western Washington Friday 
with low level offshore flow for a dry day. Another system moves 
through the area Saturday afternoon and night and as a surface low moves 
through western Washington and fills winds will become blustery Sat night. 


Long term...showers can be expected behind Saturday nights low 
pressure system on Sunday. Beyond that time...models are having a 
tough time with the details. The European model (ecmwf) has a storm track to the 
north of the area with frontal passages here through the middle of 
next week. The storm track on the GFS is just to the south of the 
area...still a wet one for western Washington but less windy. The 
Canadian solution is closer to the European model (ecmwf). In any case the pattern 
will remain active. Albrecht 


&& 


Hydrology...a Flood Warning remains in effect for the Skokomish 
River in Mason County. The skokomish at Potlatch crested around 17.2 
feet at noon today. It is expected to fall below flood stage tonight 
and gradually recede Thursday through Friday. 


Wet weather is expected to continue through the upcoming week. But 
rainfall amounts are not expected to drive any rivers above flood 
stage. Albrecht 


&& 


Aviation...cold front over the Cascades at 04z will continue to 
move east. Air mass unstable with southwesterly flow aloft. 


Ceilings in the 4000 to 6000 foot range lowering down to near 2000 
feet with visibilities 3-5sm in showers. Shower activity easing up 
overnight then increasing again Thursday morning into the afternoon 
hours. 


Ksea...ceilings near 2000 feet in showers otherwise ceilings in the 
4000-6000 foot range. Southerly winds 10-15 knots with gusts near 25 
knots until 06z. Felton 


&& 


Marine...cold front east of the waters this evening. Pressure rises 
behind the front giving Small Craft Advisory southerlies to the 
inland waters into the early morning hours. 


Weak surface ridge building over the inland waters on Thursday 
shifting east of the Cascades on Friday. A 990 mb low will develop 
off the northern California coast and move into the Oregon coastal 
waters on Saturday. The low will continue to move north into the 
interior of western Washington Saturday night. The track of the low 
will be crucial in how much wind develops over the marine areas. At 
this point gale force winds or higher are a good possibility 
Saturday night into Sunday morning. 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 


Washington...Flood Warning in effect for the Skokomish River in Mason 
County. 


Pz...Small Craft Advisory in effect for hazardous in effect 
for the coastal waters. 
Small Craft Advisory for rough bar in effect until 6 am 
Thursday for the Grays Harbor bar. 
Small Craft Advisory tonight inland waters and Admiralty 
Inlet.
