NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
320 am PDT Monday Aug 31 2015 


Synopsis...a frontal system will bring more rain to western 
Washington today through Tuesday...especially the coast and north 
part. Cool showery weather will continue Wednesday and Thursday 
as an upper trough drops southeast into the area. The upper 
trough will probably move east late this week...for drier and 
warmer weather Friday and especially over the weekend. 


&& 


Short term...a large deep upper trough remains over the region... 
with its 5270 meter low centered over the northwest corner of 
British Columbia early this morning. The leading nose of the next 
frontal system is moving into the region...with its weak warm 
front extending from Vancouver Island into Washington and the cold 
front trailing west-southwest from Vancouver Island across the 
offshore waters. This feature is bringing some light rain to the 
northwest part of the forecast area...with breezy conditions from 
around Seattle northward. 


The warm front will move east of the Cascades later today...and 
the cold front will move slowly through the forecast area later tonight 
and Tuesday. Most of the precipitation today and tonight will be 
along the north coast and in the Olympics...northwest interior... 
and north Cascades with a half inch to an inch in many places. The 
Puget Sound sound region and southwest interior will mostly receive a 
quarter inch or less. Precipitation with the cold front on Tuesday 
will be more widespread. The front will bring breezy conditions to 
most of the forecast area. 


The upper trough itself will dig southeast along the coast of 
British Columbia today through Tuesday. It will swing through 
western Washington Tuesday night and Wednesday...bringing showers 
to the area without much or any discernible break behind the cold 
front. Highs today through Wednesday will be mainly in the middle 
60s to lower 70s...which is several degrees below normal. 


The snow level will be near 9000 feet today but fall to 5000 to 
6000 feet by Wednesday. Continuing moist westerly flow of roughly 
25 knots between 5000 and 10000 feet will bring a foot or more of snow 
to some of the high terrain of the Cascades and Olympics over the 
next three days. Terrain above 8000 feet on Montana Baker will probably 
get 2 to 3 feet of snow between today and Wednesday. Mcdonnal 


Long term...models all show another shortwave digging into the 
base of the upper trough...which will keep it over southern 
British Columbia and the Pacific northwest through at least 
Thursday. Model solutions separate beyond Thursday though. The 00z 
Monday GFS shows the upper trough moving east of the Cascades 
Friday...with dry northwest flow over western Washington Saturday 
and Sunday. The Canadian and European models are similar...keeping 
an upper low over the region through Saturday and holding off dry 
weather until at least Sunday. Our forecast...for now anyway... 
leans heavily toward the GFS solution. Mcdonnal 


&& 


Aviation...a weak front will hang up over the northern portion of 
the area today. Light rain will slowly spread south this morning 
finally reaching kolm around 18z. Ahead of the rain ceilings 4500- 
6000 feet. Ceilings lowering to 3000-4000 feet with the light 
rain...2000-3000 feet along the coast and north interior. Light rain 
will continue into the afternoon hours then dissipate in the 
evening with little change in the ceilings. 


Ksea...ceilings near 5000 feet lowering to near 3000 feet with the 
onset of the light rain around 15z. Ceilings remaining near 3000 feet 
into the evening hours. Southerly winds 10 to 15 knots. Felton 


&& 


Marine...frontal system hung up over the northern portion of the 
waters will keep southerly gradients intact today. Expect Small 
Craft Advisory southerly winds over the inland waters...Admiralty 
Inlet and the East Entrance to the Strait. Winds will ease tonight. 
A pair of weak systems will move through the waters Tuesday and 
Wednesday. Weak high pressure will build over the waters on Thursday 
and remain through Friday. Felton 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...none. 
Pz...small craft advisories East Entrance to the Strait... 
Admiralty Inlet...and the inland waters.
