NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
355 am PDT Tuesday Jul 29 2014 


Synopsis...high pressure aloft will bring warm sunny days to 
western Washington through early next week at least. 


&& 


Short term...Seattle 103...National Weather Service Seattle 105...Centralia 107... 
Olympia 104...Elma 104...Everett 100...Bellingham 96...Aberdeen 95. 
These were the high temperatures five years ago on this day. 
Arguably the warmest day on record in western Washington. This will 
not be the case today although it will be another day of above 
normal temperatures for most of the area. 


Satellite imagery shows stratus along the coast moving slowly east 
through the lower Chehalis valley with another area of stratus 
coming down the Strait. Clear skies over the remainder of the area 
with temperatures ranging from near 50 to the middle 60s in the metropolitan 
area at 3 am. 


Surface gradients are a little more onshore this morning versus the 
last couple of mornings but still not very strong so don't expect 
the stratus to get much further than Shelton in the south and expect 
the stratus to remain in the Strait to the north. No change to the 
upper level pattern with western Washington on the back side of a 
strong upper level ridge centered over The Rockies. 500 mb heights 
still in the middle 580 dms. Model 850 mb temperatures similar to 
yesterday...plus 15 to 18c. With the onshore gradients only slightly 
stronger and the temperatures aloft similar not going for much in 
the way of cooling over the interior today with 80s common once 
again and the warmest locations pushing 90 degrees. 


Little change in the pattern...both surface and aloft...tonight 
through Thursday. 500 mb heights remain in the middle 580 dms with 
southwesterly flow aloft keeping the possibility of convection over 
the central Washington Cascades minimal. At the surface another 
slight increase in the onshore flow overnight into Wednesday morning 
will result in a couple of degrees of cooling for the interior 
during the day on Wednesday with the stratus being a little more 
persistent along the coast in the morning hours. Thursday looks to 
be a repeat of Wednesday. Each night the marine stratus will push 
weakly inland from the coast just reaching Whidbey Island through 
the Strait of Juan Delaware fuca...and just to the south end of Puget Sound 
sound and Hood Canal through the Chehalis gap. The stratus will burn 
back to the coast quickly each morning. 


Long term...after a few runs of good agreement in the extended 
models a couple of wrinkles in the forecasts this morning. The GFS has 
changed slightly over the weekend with some weak troughiness over 
the area. 500 mb heights are still high...middle 580s dms so there is 
still no precipitation forecast. The slight change in the flow aloft 
could result in a little stronger onshore flow and slightly cooler 
temperatures than currently forecast. The European model (ecmwf) brings a small low 
up from the south on Saturday with precipitation over the northern 
portion of the area. The Canadian also has this feature although it 
is much more drier than the European model (ecmwf) solution. With these solutions 
being new to the model runs will stay with the more consistent GFS 
solution which keeps the weak onshore flow pattern with temperatures 
a few degrees above normal going into the first part of next week. 
Felton 


&& 


Climate...a total of 0.31 inches of rain has been reported on this 
day since records started at Seattle-Tacoma Airport in 1945 making 
this the driest day of the year in terms of total rainfall for the 
day at sea-tac. 


&& 


Aviation...upper ridge over the western U.S. Will persist. Southwest 
flow aloft. Surface high pressure offshore with thermal low pressure 
inland. Areas of fog and low clouds along the coast and in the 
Strait of Juan Delaware fuca this morning...otherwise the air is dry and 
stable. 


Ksea...clear with a northerly breeze. 


&& 


Marine...high pressure offshore with thermal low pressure inland 
will result in a typical summertime northwest breeze for the coastal waters 
and a westerly sea breeze in the Strait each afternoon and evening. Areas 
of late night and morning fog can be expected over the coastal 
waters and in the Strait of Juan Delaware fuca. 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory in effect for the two southern innermost 
coastal waters zones...James Island to Point Grenville to Cape 
Shoalwater...and for the central/eastern Strait of Juan Delaware fuca.
