NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
900 PM PDT Sat Apr 19 2014 


Synopsis...showers and onshore flow will diminish overnight as high 
pressure moves into the area. The next front will stall offshore 
Sunday with a chance of rain along the coast. The front will move 
inland Monday night. Additional weather systems will give cool 
unsettled weather through next week. 


&& 


Short term...showers and breezy weather tonight will give way to 
weak high pressure Sunday. The next incoming front will stall Sunday 
just offshore and becoming north-south oriented...which will the 
best chance of precipitation to the coast. An upper trough will approach 
the area Monday and push inland Monday night into Tuesday. 
South-southwest flow aloft ahead of this trough and the old stationary frontal 
system will give a chance of showers to the area Monday....with an 
increasing chance Monday afternoon and night and even more so on 
Tuesday. 


Long term...models diverge somewhat concerning the weather on 
Wednesday. The GFS family of solutions generally shows dirty ridging 
on Wednesday for possibly some peeks of sunshine and only a chance 
of showers...mainly in the mountains...in westerly flow aloft. The 
preferred European model (ecmwf) and Canadian solutions show a warm front bringing 
rather wet conditions to the area...especially later in the day on 
Wednesday. Models are fairly consistent in bringing a slow moving 
cold front through the area Wednesday night through Thursday night 
or Friday for periods of rain. A trough pattern will give at least 
a chance of showers to the area next weekend. Probability of precipitation through the 
extended forecast are above climatological average and temperatures 
with all the clouds and precipitation will average a few degrees 
below normal for late April. Albrecht 


&& 


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


The exception is 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 230 PM...the North Fork of the stillaguamish near Arlington is at 
4.6 feet...or 2740 cfs. The river is expected to rise to 6.5 feet or 
6050 cfs early Sunday morning before falling back to around 4.5 feet 
Monday afternoon. The North Fork of the stillaguamish river near Oso 
is at 216.5 feet or 1900 cfs this afternoon and is expected to rise 
to 218.3 feet or 3500 cfs early Sunday morning before falling late 
Sunday into Monday. The slide pool east of the landslide is expected 
to rise to around 285.3 feet midday Sunday before falling back to 
284.3 feet Monday night. Albrecht 


&& 


Aviation...an upper level trough over the Pacific northwest will shift eastward 
tonight...then a temporary ridge builds on Sunday. Moderate westerly flow 
aloft...becoming light to moderate southerly flow on Sunday. Decreasing 
moisture late tonight with drying in the lower and middle levels 
Sunday. Weakly unstable this evening...then stable. Mainly VFR 
conditions through Sunday...except brief MVFR ceilings with any showers 
this evening. 


Ksea...ceilings 3-5k feet tonight...then above 6-8k feet Sunday morning 
before scattering. Lingering showers this evening...ending 
overnight. Dry Sunday. SW wind 13-18 knots west/ gusts 25 knots...easing to 
10-13 knots later tonight. S wind to 10 knots on Sunday. Dtm 


&& 


Marine...higher surface pressure builds over the waters behind a 
front tonight. Small Craft Advisory winds remain over all 
waters...tapering off by late tonight. Southeast small craft winds 
redeveloping over the coastal waters and west Strait on Sunday. High 
pressure remains over the waters Sunday as a front approaches...then 
diminishes as it pushes across the area Sunday night. 


A large swell train will arrive along the Washington coast tonight 
and continue into Sunday. Large waves up to 15 feet will impact this 
coast tonight...building to 16 to 19 feet later tonight into Sunday 
morning. A high surf advisory remains in effect for the coast 
through Sunday. This is a razor clam dig weekend for Twin 
Harbors...copalis and Moclips/mocrocks beaches. Extreme caution 
should be exercised as waves will likely race further up the beach 
than normal. Dtm 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...Flood Warning remains in effect for the North Fork of the 
stillaguamish river east of the sunrise 530 landslide. 
High surf advisory north and central coast through Sunday 
afternoon. 


Pz...Small Craft Advisory central and eastern Strait of Juan Delaware 
fuca...Admiralty Inlet...and the northern inland waters through 
midnight tonight. 
Small Craft Advisory coast and west Strait of Juan Delaware fuca 
through Sunday. 
Small Craft Advisory Puget Sound sound through 2 am PDT Sunday
