NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
255 am PDT sun Apr 19 2015 


Synopsis...high pressure aloft will give dry and warm weather to 
the region through Monday. The high will move east Monday night 
allowing marine moisture to move inland. Tuesday will see much 
cooler conditions and an increase in cloudiness. Weak cold fronts 
and upper level troughs will move across the area Wednesday through 
the end of the upcoming week. These systems will give mostly cloudy 
conditions...a chance of showers at times...and slightly below 
normal temperatures for late April. 


&& 


Short term...a ridge of high pressure at the surface and aloft sits 
along 130w early this morning. This ridge will move slowly eastward 
through Monday...finally departing to the east of the Cascades 
Monday night. Other than some cirrus clouds moving over the top of 
the ridge...expect mostly sunny skies. Some late night and morning 
fog may be seen on the coastal beaches...like what is seen on 
satellite imagery around Grays Harbor County early this 
morning. 


Model time sections show temperatures between 2000 and 5000 feet 
increasing a degree or two c today over what they were on 
Saturday...and another 2 degrees c or so on Monday. This will result 
in high temperatures 2 degrees f or so warmer today and another 4 
degrees f or so warmer on Monday as the upper level ridge passes 
overhead. Forecast temperatures fall between the GFS and NAM 
guidance values. Low temperatures early Monday will be 2-3 degrees 
higher than this morning. 


The main forecast challenge continues to be the timing of the 
expected marine push Monday night or Tuesday. With the upper ridge 
axis passing off to the east Monday night...500 mb heights falling 
early Tuesday morning...warm temperatures Monday afternoon 
increasing west to east thermal gradients...and west to southwest 
pressure gradients ramping up Tuesday morning...it seems that the models are 
too slow in shifting marine air inland Monday night and Tuesday 
morning. The 06z NAM shows rather strong westerly gradients after 18z Tuesday 
and the European model (ecmwf) is also fast in increasing onshore flow Monday night. 
Prefer the European model (ecmwf) MOS guidance high temperatures for Tuesday that 
show 60 degrees at SeaTac Airport and middle 50s on the coast. For now 
will nudge forecasts about 75 percent in the direction of the European model (ecmwf). 


The European model (ecmwf) shows a split trough moving across western Washington Tuesday 
night and Wednesday and now shows more energy and cold air in the northern 
portion of the trough over Washington. Southerly flow in advance of the 
approaching trough supports the idea of a chance of showers over the 
coastal waters Tuesday and in the mountains Tuesday afternoon and evening. 
Height falls...cold air advection aloft..and somewhat diffluent southerly 
flow aloft supports the idea of a chance of afternoon and evening 
thunderstorms over the Cascades on Tuesday. Albrecht 


Long term...upper troughing passes to the east of the area late 
Wednesday. The European model (ecmwf) is stronger with another short wave trough and 
associated frontal system on Thursday than the GFS...but both models show 
a feature moving through in the Thursday time frame. A rather deep trough 
sets up just offshore for next weekend with a frontal system over or 
just to the west of the area. Will maintain the current forecast of 
mostly cloudy and a chance of showers with temperatures near or 
slightly below normal. Albrecht 


&& 


Aviation...an upper level ridge over the Pacific northwest will lead to dry 
and stable weather across western Washington today. The flow aloft is 
northwesterly. VFR conditions are expected...although may see patchy 
shallow fog along the coast this morning. Otherwise skies will 
remain mostly clear with just few-scattered cirrus aloft. 33 


Ksea...VFR conditions today. Expect north winds to 10 knots. 33 


&& 


Marine...low pressure along the West Coast will maintain northerly 
flow across western Washington through Monday. Low pressure will shift inland Monday 
night with weak onshore flow developing. Onshore flow will increase 
on Tuesday as a strong cold front moves inland...models are showing 
gales possible through the Strait of Juan Delaware fuca. Onshore flow will 
continue through the end of the week. 33 


&& 


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