NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
240 am PDT Wednesday Jul 1 2015 


Synopsis...high pressure aloft will remain over the Pacific 
northwest into early next week for hot and dry weather. 


&& 


Short term...an upper ridge will be over the Pacific northwest 
through Friday. Temperatures will remain well above normal. Other 
than some morning clouds near the coast...skies will be generally 
clear each day. MOS guidance indicates Thursday will be the warmest 
day for most areas. The European model (ecmwf) 850 mb temperatures peak on Thursday 
as well but the GFS is actually warmest today and both models show 
the weakest onshore flow today versus Thursday. Either way...the 
next three days will continue the recent stretch of very warm 
weather for western Washington. Schneider 


Long term...the upper ridge over the area will retrograde offshore 
this weekend and early next week. Heights will initially remain high 
and models indicate a thermal trough developing along the coast for 
low level offshore flow. This could result in even warmer 
temperatures with lower to middle 90s possible by Sunday for parts of 
the interior. 


It looks like there will be some cooling early next week as low 
level onshore flow increases again and upper heights gradually lower 
across the region. Temperatures will still be a little above normal 
however and there is no precipitation expected through next 
Tuesday. Schneider 


&& 


Aviation...westerly flow aloft will continue over western 
Washington today with a small upper ridge moving over the area this 
afternoon. The flow will back to southwest tonight as a weak upper 
trough moves over southern Vancouver Island. Weak low level onshore 
flow will continue. The air mass will remain dry except for a 
shallow surface-based marine layer. 


There is little to no marine stratus over the forecast area 
early this morning. Areas of stratus could develop along the 
coast during the next few hours and then dissipate by midday...with 
the pattern repeating itself again tonight and Thursday morning. 
Otherwise skies should be generally clear. 


Ksea...northerly wind 6-12 knots today...becoming north to northeast 
4-8 knots tonight. Skies should remain generally clear. Mcdonnal 


&& 


Marine...gale force westerlies that developed in the central Strait 
of Juan Delaware fuca and East Entrance Strait Tuesday evening eased 
overnight. Relatively weak onshore flow will continue through 
Friday...with high pressure well offshore and lower pressure east 
of the Cascades. The result should be Small Craft Advisory northwest 
winds over the outer coastal waters...and marginal Small Craft 
Advisory westerlies in the central and east Strait during the 
evening hours. 


A thermally induced trough of low pressure will develop over western 
Washington this weekend...and winds should be 20 knots or less. 
Mcdonnal 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 


Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory outer coastal waters...central and east 
Strait of Juan Delaware fuca. 


&&
