NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
300 am PDT Tuesday Sep 23 2014 


Synopsis...moist and unstable southwest flow aloft will bring 
showers today. A vigorous frontal system will arrive tonight and 
Wednesday...bringing rain and locally windy conditions. An upper 
trough will bring mostly cloudy skies and a chance of showers late 
Wednesday through Friday. 


&& 


Short term...an upper short wave in the moist unstable southwest 
flow aloft will bring showers to the western Washington today. A 
fairly wet frontal system will bring a period of steadier and more 
widespread rain later tonight and Wednesday morning as it moves 
onshore. An upper trough will keep the weather showery Wednesday 
afternoon through Thursday. Temperatures will be near normal the 
next few days. Schneider 


Long term...an upper trough over the Pacific northwest will weaken 
on Friday for a continued chance of showers. For the weekend...there 
will be an upper low well to the south of the area over the 
southwest U.S. And a second upper low over the Gulf of Alaska. This 
puts western Washington in between most of the active weather with 
weak high pressure aloft for generally dry weather. The flow aloft 
will likely become more consolidated on Monday with an upper trough 
carving out over the area for a better chance or rain. Schneider 


&& 


Aviation...a broad upper level trough will remain offshore today 
with increasing southwest flow aloft over western Washington. The 
air mass is somewhat unstable with moisture increasing at all 
levels. Showers early today will turn to more widespread rain 
tonight as a warm front lifts northward toward the region. Mostly 
VFR ceilings early today are expected to become MVFR after 21z as 
rain increases. A trailing cold front will move across the area 
early Wednesday morning. 


Ksea...mainly VFR ceilings of 4k to 6k feet this morning with 
passing showers...then lowering to MVFR in the afternoon and evening 
with more steady rain developing. Wind south to southeast 10 knots 
or less. 


&& 


Marine...a surface low will deepen to around 973 millibars as it 
approaches 46n 137w late this afternoon. An associated warm front 
will lift northward across the waters this evening with a trailing 
cold front moving through early Wednesday. The surface low offshore 
will gradually fill Wednesday evening through Friday as it sends a 
series of weaker impulses onshore. Winds over the coastal waters are 
expected to reach gale force ahead of and near the warm front. Small 
Craft Advisory winds are expected at the Strait entrances as well as 
the northern inland waters this afternoon through tonight. Small 
Craft Advisory winds are possible for Puget Sound sound and Hood Canal 
following the passage of the cold front on Wednesday morning. 27 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Gale Warning coastal waters tonight. 
Small Craft Advisory coastal waters through this afternoon. 
Small Craft Advisory entrances to the Strait and northern 
inland waters this afternoon through tonight.
