NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
830 PM PDT Thursday Jul 30 2015 


Synopsis...a strong upper level ridge will be over the Pacific 
northwest through Saturday. The ridge will weaken and shift a little 
east Sunday into Monday. An upper level trough will move over the 
area by the middle of next week. 


&& 


Short term...for the interior of western Washington there will be a couple 
more rather warm days and then a cooling trend will begin...slowly 
at first...on Sunday. Forecast high temperatures for Friday range from near 
80 at Hoquiam and Forks...to the 90s from the Seattle metropolitan area 
south. The 850mb temperature will peak at 21c Friday afternoon and then 
falls off a couple degrees Saturday and a bit more Sunday. Clear 
skies will prevail...then maybe a little high cloudiness will arrive 
Saturday night and Sunday followed by low clouds to the coast 
and deepening marine air Sunday night. 


Long term...highs temperatures on Monday over the interior of wrnw a will 
fall to the 70s to lower 80s. An upper low will drop southeast over the 
area midweek...with more cooling and an increasing chance of showers 
through the end of next week. The 18z GFS showed a 563dm low center 
crossing northwest Washington Thursday. 




&& 


Aviation...an upper ridge will continue over the region. Continued westerly flow 
aloft and low level northwest flow. Patchy LIFR ceilings/visibilities are anticipated 
over the coast after 0900 UTC. 


Ksea...VFR. Continued northerly winds. 


&& 


Marine...persistent high pressure offshore with lower pressure east of the 
Cascades will keep the flow northwest through Friday. Expect the flow 
to become more westerly and strengthen this weekend, leading to the 
possibility of gale force winds over the central and eastern Strait 
of Juan Delaware fuca. 


&& 


Fire weather...a critical period for fire weather is underway... 
given how extremely dry the air mass is over western Washington. 
Many locations are experiencing relative humidity down in the 20s 
this afternoon...even locations that normally stay more humid such 
as near the Strait of Juan Delaware fuca. When you get above a low-level 
subsidence inversion near 2000 feet mean sea level...the air mass is also more 
unstable. With that additional aggravating factor...will keep the 
red flag warning going for elevations above 2000 feet. Looks like 
little change in the character of the middle-level air mass until 
Saturday evening...so have extended the red flag warning until 10 PM 
Saturday. This is the kind of weather setup that helps small fires 
grow to become large fires.Haner 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... Washington...heat advisory remains in 
effect until 9 PM Saturday for parts of the Puget Sound sound region and 
southwest interior. 


Red flag warning in effect until 10 PM Saturday night for the 
Cascades and Olympics above 2000 feet. 


Pz...Small Craft Advisory remains in effect tonight forthe coastal 
waters from James Island to Cape Shoalwater out to 10 nm and 
the central and eastern Strait.
