NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
352 am PST Sat Feb 6 2016 


Synopsis...a few showers will linger over the area this morning. A 
weak warm front will clip the coast and north Cascades on Sunday. 
Expect dry and mild weather early next week as a strong ridge 
builds over the Pacific northwest. The ridge will shift east by 
Wednesday opening the door to more frontal systems beginning 
Wednesday night. 


&& 


Short term...satellite imagery shows last nights cold front is 
already out of the state (pic0). Post frontal showers still evident 
offshore but with some weak warm advection going on with the 
approach of the next warm front the showers are decreasing. 
Doppler radar shows over the interior westerly flow aloft is 
keeping the central sound rain shadowed (pic1) with an area of 
convergence in the Cascades north of Stevens Pass and plenty of 
showers west of Puget Sound sound at 330 am. Temperatures at 3 am were 
in the middle 30s to middle 40s. 


Today looks to be a transition day with an upper level ridge 
starting to build off the coast ahead of the warm front which is 
currently near 140w (pic2). Shower activity will decrease this morning 
and become confined to the mountains this afternoon. Low level 
onshore flow this morning will becoming light later this morning 
and this afternoon (pic3). Still some slightly cool air left in the wake 
of yesterdays front so even with a little sunshine high 
temperatures will be near normal...around 50 degrees. 


Upper level ridge keeps building between 130w and the coastline 
tonight (pic4) while the warm front continues to move northeast. With the 
approaching warm front lowering surface pressures offshore low 
level flow going offshore. Warm front close enough to spread some 
middle/high level moisture over the area overnight keeping the 
wording in the forecast mostly cloudy. There is the potential for 
a colorful sunrise Sunday morning. Lows overnight in the 30s to 
middle 40s. 


Upper level ridge continues to build on Sunday and shift east over 
western Washington. 500 mb heights by 00z Monday in the upper 570 
dms to lower 580 dms. Still a chance the warm front moving over 
the ridge could bring some light precipitation to the north coast 
and north Cascades (pic5). Will leave chance probability of precipitation in the forecast for 
these locations. For the remainder of the area partly sunny/mostly 
cloudy skies with the middle and high level cloud cover. Highs will 
be in the 50s. 


Warm front moving well north of the area Sunday night as the ridge 
continues to build. Upper level ridge right over western 
Washington in Monday with 500 mb heights continue to increase a 
touch (pic6). Low level flow remains offshore. End result will be a warm 
day with temperatures anywhere from 5 to 15 degrees above normal. 
The record high of 61 degrees at kuil will have a good chance of 
being broken with highs on the coast in the lower to middle 60s. 50s 
and lower 60s will be common over the rest of western 
Washington...around what the normal highs would be for the middle 
of April. 


Long term...upper level ridge starts shifting east on Tuesday but 
the low level offshore flow continues (pic7) resulting in another very 
warm day. Once again the coast will be the warmest location. Model 
solutions start to diverge after Tuesday with the GFS bringing a 
very weak system into the area on Wednesday (pic8). The European model (ecmwf) leaves this 
system offshore and the Canadian is a compromise with some rain on 
the coast. Little consistency in the 00z model solutions continue 
for Wednesday night and Thursday with the European model (ecmwf) bringing a front 
through the area Wednesday night while the GFS and Canadian have 
the system moving through on Thursday. There is better consensus 
on Friday will all of the models indicating some precipitation (pic9). 
Current forecast has chance probability of precipitation Wednesday night through Thursday 
night with likely probability of precipitation on Friday. With the lack of model 
consistency will stay with this scenario in the morning forecast 
package. Felton 


&& 


Aviation...westerly upper level flow (pic10) will turn northwesterly 
as an upper level trough starts to make its way east of the area. 
Scattered showers still present on current radar imagery (pic12). 


Ceilings remain VFR to MVFR and are generally expected to remain that 
way as upper level ridging starts to build into the area. 
However...with some scattered showers still out there...may see ceilings 
dip into MVFR to IFR range in locations that see precipitation. As upper 
level ridging continues to build over western Washington...expecting 
drying conditions starting this afternoon and continuing into 
Sunday. Smr 


Ksea...ceilings generally VFR...however there is a patch of showers 
heading toward ksea which may lower ceilings to MVFR as it passes by. 
Timing on this looks to be by 12z. Otherwise...VFR conditions 
expected to remain dominant. Winds to remain southerly this morning 
and into the afternoon before shifting easterly by evening. Speeds 
will gradually decrease...10-14 kts with occasional gusts early this 
morning...generally 8-12 kts by late morning and steadying off at 4- 
7 kts by late afternoon. Smr 


&& 


Marine...current batch of gales and small craft advisories will be 
generally left intact with morning forecast. Coastal waters are just 
shy of small craft...too close for Comfort...and central and east 
Strait are similarly just shy of gale. Remaining waters have 
locations meeting Small Craft Advisory winds...so timing on 
headlines looks okay at this time. Did hoist a small craft to follow 
the Gale Warning for central Strait...while eastern Strait looks 
like it might be okay for no additional products. 


Seas will continue to subside throughout the day today...putting to 
rest any concerns regarding surf or beach erosion for the time being. 


Onshore flow will continue to diminish through the day today as a 
ridge of high pressure builds into the waters. The ridge will shift 
east of the Cascades on Sunday resulting in light to moderate 
offshore flow that will persist into the middle of next week. Small 
Craft Advisory conditions are possible at times Sunday Onward near 
gaps in the terrain over the coastal waters and possibly in the 
outer portions of the coastal waters. Smr 


&& 


Hydrology...the North Fork of the Skokomish River is receding 
and the South Fork is cresting early this morning. The main Stem 
of the skokomish is slowly rising but is nearly a foot below flood 
stage. With little rain expected today will end the watch for 
Mason County with this forecast package. 


River flooding is not expected in the next 7 days. 


In addition with just a few showers left before the weather turns 
dry will allow the landslide threat statement to expire at 4 am. 
Felton 


&& 


Climate...upon further review it turns out Seattle set a record 
for the most precipitation from December 1st through January 31st 
with 18.66 inches. The old record was 18.51 inches set in 
2005-06. Felton 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories...
