NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
930 PM PST sun Jan 25 2015 


Synopsis...an upper ridge over the region with surface high 
pressure east of the Cascades will give another dry mild day on 
Monday. A weak front will dissipate over western Washington Tuesday 
through early Wednesday. Another upper level ridge will build over 
the region later in the week. 


&& 


Short term...an upper level ridge is centered over Washington state 
while a surface ridge extends from southeastern Idaho into eastern 
Washington. Subsidence and drying in the lower levels gave a very 
nice day to the area today with some record highs. Cirrus is moving 
over the ridge but otherwise fair skies tonight with high dewpoints 
means that areas of fog will develop. The fog will lift midday on 
Monday...perhaps later in the afternoon in the south interior where 
the valleys are blocked from the light offshore flow. Afternoon 
sunshine and a continued warm air mass means another very nice and 
mild day on Monday with highs again in the 50s to around 60 degrees. 
The record high temperature at SeaTac Airport on Monday is again 58 
degrees and should be broken by a degree or two. 


The ridge shifts eastward into western Montana Monday night 
as a frontal system and short wave trough offshore approaches the 
area. However...the upper ridge appears to be strong enough to cause 
the incoming front and upper level shortwave trough to mainly ride 
by to the north of the area with little in the way of precipitation 
in the interior of western Washington as the moves in and dies Monday 
night through early Wednesday. Probability of precipitation were cut back a bit from the previous 
forecasts for the Monday night through Wednesday time frame. Skies will be 
cloudy and temperatures will be mild with lows in the 40s and highs 
in the lower 50s Tuesday and Wednesday. Albrecht/19 


Long term...a very weak short wave trough will move onshore Wednesday 
night or Thursday. The 18z GFS is now dry with the Wednesday night and Thursday 
system while the European model (ecmwf) brings some very light precipitation to the 
coast. Will limit rain chances on Thursday to the coast. Model 
consistency and continuity starts to suffer somewhat starting Sat 
night with the faster 12z and 18z GFS bringing a front into the area 
Sat night and sun and the European model (ecmwf) is about 18 hours slower...but still 
faster than previous solutions. Will introduce clouds and a chance 
of rain into the forecast starting Sat night and continuing into 
Monday. With mean upper ridging along the West Coast...it will remain a 
few degrees warmer than normal through early next week. Albrecht 


&& 


Hydrology...flooding is not expected for the next 7 days. 


&& 


Aviation...upper level ridge over western Washington through 
Monday. Ridge axis east of the area with southwesterly flow aloft. 
Ridge weakening Monday night as system moves into British Columbia. 
Air mass stable and moist below 1000 feet. 


Fog has already formed in some locations this evening. With the 
moist air near the surface and fairly light gradients expect fog 
coverage to expand overnight with many locations having ceilings 
below 500 feet and visibilities a mile or less by 12z. The layer 
will be shallow with tops around 1000 feet so a slow lift by late 
morning followed by a midday burn off in the forecast. 


Ksea...fog has already formed to the south of the terminal in Tacoma 
and to the north in Everett. Still a four degree temperature dew point 
spread at 05z ( 49/45 ) along with a bit of a north wind so there is 
still a few hours to go before the fog forms at the terminal. Will 
go for a gradual deterioration of conditions beginning around 10z 
with ceilings and visibilities below 200 feet and a half mile around 
12z. With the layer fairly shallow expect a late morning/midday 
breakout. Felton 


&& 


Marine...weak offshore gradients will persist through tonight. On 
Monday afternoon...a 999 mb low will move NE to haida gwaii... 
increasing the southerly winds over the coastal waters and a few 
locations over the inland waters. The front will dissipate before it 
moves inland Monday night into Tuesday morning. Low level flow will 
turn onshore Tuesday. A return of light offshore flow is forecast on 
Wednesday. 


Small craft advisories for hazardous seas over the coastal waters 
and West Entrance to the Strait will come to an end with the next 
forecast package as the swell subsidies below 10 feet. Felton 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas coast and West 
Entrance until late tonight.
