NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
252 am PST Thursday Mar 5 2015 


Synopsis...an upper level ridge over the area combined with surface 
high pressure will give dry conditions through the weekend. Weak 
disturbances riding over the ridge to the north of the area will 
give high clouds at times. Temperatures will be mild for early 
March. The upper ridge will weaken early next week with more clouds 
and a chance of rain returning...possibly as early as Monday night. 


&& 


Short term...a rather strong upper level ridge is centered near 
130w early this morning. A surface ridge extends from around 40n 
135w northeast into western Washington and southwestern British 
Columbia. A loop of infrared satellite images shows a weak frontal 
wave and upper level short wave disturbance riding over the top of 
the ridge into haida gwaii and west central British Columbia today. 
But the ridge appears to be winning out...and all we will see of 
this system through early Friday will be middle and high 
clouds...mainly over the northern half of western Washington. Rain 
chances were taken out of the forecast for today through early 
Friday over northern portions of the area. Despite the 
clouds...expect temperatures today to be mild with highs in the 50s. 


The upper ridge will rebound over western Washington on Friday and 
pressure gradients will remain rather flat. The air mass aloft on 
Friday will be rather mild with 850 temperatures around +6c. Lowland 
temperatures near the Cascades and Olympics and from about Seattle 
southward will rise to around the 60 degree mark. 


On Saturday...the ridge will become negatively tilted as a weak 
short wave trough drops from west central British Columbia southeast toward 
Montana and Wyoming. The passage of this trough will likely do 
little more than bring some wispy high clouds through the area...and 
temperatures are likely to rise back to Friday levels. Albrecht 


Long term...Sunday will remain dry as the upper ridge remains over 
the area and pressure gradients remain flat. Sunday high 
temperatures will rise about a degree or two above Saturday values 
and will cap off a really nice early Spring weekend for western 
Washington. 


Starting on Monday...the upper ridge will start to shift east and 
weaken as Pacific moisture and energy starts to move back onto the 
West Coast. Monday will likely remain dry but will be a transition 
day as middle and high clouds increase and temperatures drop back into 
the 50s. 


Models are beginning to show more of a split flow along the West 
Coast for Tuesday into Wednesday with the northern stream over 
British Columbia and northern Washington and the southern stream 
moving into mainly California into central Oregon. The European model (ecmwf) shows 
the southern stream farther north and dominant while the GFS shows 
the northern stream more in control from about Washington northward. 
At this time the best bet is to keep clouds in the forecast with a 
chance of rain Monday night Onward with temperatures near normal for 
early March. Albrecht 


&& 


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


&& 


Aviation...high pressure aloft will persist over the Pacific northwest. A weak 
upper level system will push across southern b.C. Today and 
tonight...bringing high clouds into western Washington at times. Light westerly flow 
aloft. Dry in the lower to middle levels. Stable atmosphere. 


Ksea...NE wind 4-6 knots becoming northwest in the afternoon. High clouds at 
times with VFR conditions. 


&& 


Marine...surface high pressure over the Pacific northwest will result in weak 
pressure gradients and light winds through the weekend. Weak onshore 
flow may develop Sunday night. A front may reach the waters by 
Monday. 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...none. 
Pz...none.
