NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
900 PM PDT Thursday Aug 21 2014 


Synopsis...a low pressure system aloft will move southeast over the 
region tonight bringing a threat of showers mainly in the mountains 
through Friday night. Higher pressure aloft is then forecast to 
build over the Pacific northwest over the weekend for more sunshine and 
warmer daytime temperatures...likely continuing well into next week. 


&& 


Short term...upper level low pressure is in the process of closing 
off over the Pacific northwest this evening. Instability is increasing ahead of 
and near the low center resulting in thunderstorms over the southern b.C. 
Rockies and also just east of the Washington Cascade crest. A cool marine air 
mass resulting from weak onshore flow over the western Washington lowlands will 
keep most of our area stable. In fact...areas of marine clouds are 
expected to develop again later tonight and Friday morning but with 
less coverage than this morning. Northerly flow and cooler air aloft 
behind the low on Friday will result in unstable conditions over the 
mountains. Models are in good agreement on some shower activity over 
the Cascades and foothills with sub zero lifted indice's by afternoon 
supporting a threat of thunderstorms. The northerly flow could allow a few 
showers to spill into the far north interior but probably not making it 
into the Puget Sound sound region. The forecast was updated this evening 
to trim back probability of precipitation slightly to just the mountains and far north. 
Gradients will go flat on Friday with more sunshine expected over 
The Lowlands so high temperatures should reach the low 70s. 


Low pressure will shift eastward Friday night but the long wave trough 
position will remain centered over The Rockies. This keeps western Washington 
under northwest flow aloft between the ridge just offshore and the trough 
further inland. Models still show 500 mb height rises to around 
5800m but not as high as some previous runs. The lack of onshore 
flow should result in little morning cloud cover. Upper heights 
under this scenario support highs near 80 on Saturday which matches 
current MOS guidance. A weak short wave traveling down the back side 
of the long wave trough will clip the area Sunday. The only impact 
should be to keep upper heights and high temperatures in check. 
Expect another mostly clear day with highs near 80. Mercer 


Long term...no changes from previous discussion...the overall trend 
in the guidance is for the upstream upper ridge to move onshore Tuesday 
and that may be the warmest day of the week. Then the flow aloft 
becomes more westerly or zonal yet 500 mb heights are relatively 
high. The accompanying low level onshore flow should maintain 
daytime temperatures at or a bit above seasonal average into Thursday 
though there is some indication of sagging heights aloft before the 
end of the week that may signal a gradual cooling trend and some 
increase in low level onshore flow. Buehner 


&& 


Aviation...weak upper level trough over the area tonight will shift 
east Friday morning. Light flow aloft becoming northerly Friday 
morning. Low level flow will remain weakly onshore. 


Satellite imagery at 0330z/830 PM shows little in the way of stratus 
anywhere in the County Warning Area. Convective activity remains well to the north 
and east of the area. Light onshore gradients continuing overnight 
into Friday morning. With the light onshore flow can not rule out 
stratus over the interior Friday morning. The stratus that does form 
will be shallow and burn off by midday at the latest. Ceilings with 
the stratus look to be in the 1000-2000 foot range. 


Ksea...mostly clear skies with stratus reforming over the terminal 
around 12z with ceilings near 1500 feet. Stratus scattering out by 
late morning. Variable winds 6 knots or less becoming northwesterly 
midday Friday. Felton 


&& 


Marine...the very static onshore flow pattern will continue for the 
next several days. As is typical with this type of pattern...the 
strength of the onshore flow will vary diurnally as well as with a 
series of weak systems that are forecast to brush the region over 
the next few days. Expect the strongest westerly winds over the 
central and east Strait during the evening and early morning 
hours...easing just before day break through the later morning. Over 
the coastal waters southerly flow will become northwesterly Friday. 
Surface high pressure building inside of 140 west will tighten up 
surface gradients Saturday afternoon and night over the outer 
coastal waters...boosting the northwesterlies above small craft 
criteria. West to northwesterly swell 3 to 6 feet with a period 
around 8 seconds will persist through the weekend. Felton 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory central and east Strait of Juan Delaware fuca.
