Severe Weather Alert Descriptions

 Special Statement  Statement as of 6:02 am PDT on August 28, 2015


... A strong Pacific storm could bring strong winds and locally
heavy rain to western Washington on Saturday...

A much stronger system will impact the region on Saturday. This
system has the potential to bring winds of 20 to 35 mph with
gusts of 45 to 50 mph to parts of the coast... northwest
interior... and I-5 corridor. Winds this strong usually occur in
fall and winter. Thus... this wind event could create more problems
due to the deciduous trees still having their leaves. This will
make the branches more prone to snapping in strong winds. In
addition to the possibility of downed tree limbs... the gusty winds
could cause local power outages.

Rain will be locally heavy at times on Saturday. Rainfall amounts
of 1 to 3 inches are forecast for the coast and in the
mountains... with a half to one inch elsewhere... during the 24 hour
period ending at 5 am PDT Sunday. This amount of rain will likely
end or help reduce the size of any ongoing wildfires.

In addition to the wind and rain... temperatures will be below
normal on Saturday. Highs are forecast to be mainly in the mid to
upper 60s across The Lowlands.

Those planning outdoor activities in the mountains in particular
this weekend should pay close attention to the latest forecasts
from the National Weather Service.

Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
900 am PDT Friday Aug 28 2015 


Synopsis...a weak front moved through western Washington this 
morning. A stronger frontal system will sweep through the area 
Saturday. An upper trough will affect the region next week. 


&& 


Short term...a weak front moved through western Washington this morning and 
the precipitation has broken up to scattered showers. Saturday will see 
periods of rain and blustery conditions as a stronger frontal system 
moves through western Washington. The 12z GFS shows a 1008 mb low near 39n 
132w this moring deepening to 993 mb and tracking just off the coast 
Saturday morning. There will be gale warnings in effect for the 
marine areas Saturday with wind advisories over land. 


Long term...cool unsettled conditions will persist over the area 
with an upper level trough over the region through the week. Looking 
at the 06z GFS...shortwave troughs moving through the broad regional 
trough reinforce the cool showery air mass on about Wednesday and again 
around Friday night and Saturday. Below normal temperatures and above 
normal precipitation is likely with showers and some partly sunny periods. 


&& 


Aviation...a weak front moving through the interior of western 
Washington this morning will keep low and middle level clouds with 
scattered showers over the area this morning with some improvement 
behind the front. MVFR ceilings will improve to VFR by late morning. The 
air mass will remain moist and generally stable with southwest flow 
aloft. 


Ksea...ceilings have begun to show improvement. Expect MVFR ceilings to 
improve to VFR over the next two hours. Overnight ceilings will likely 
lower again by around daybreak to MVFR levels. Southerly winds 4-8 
knots will become light northerly tonight. 


&& 


Marine...southerly winds over the coastal waters will become 
southwesterly this morning and ease over the coastal waters and West 
Entrance Strait of Juan Delaware fuca as a weak surface front moves 
inland. A stronger front will move through the waters Saturday with 
gale force winds likely for most waters Saturday morning through 
much of the day. A set of weaker frontal waves will move through 
area waters Sunday and again Monday helping to boost winds and seas. 
These systems will not be as strong as saturdays front...but will 
likely bring Small Craft Advisory criteria to the coastal waters as 
well as parts of the inland areas. 


&&
