NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
902 am PST Monday Jan 26 2015 


Synopsis...high pressure over the region and light surface flow 
will result in widespread low clouds and fog this morning before 
clearing. A weak front will dissipate over western Washington 
Tuesday through early Wednesday. Another ridge will build over the 
region Friday and Saturday giving dry and mild weather. The next 
front brings a chance of rain back into the area Sunday and early 
next week. Near or above temperatures are expected. 


&& 


Short term...shallow dense fog covers much of the western Washington 
lowlands this morning. Visibilities are 1/4 mile or less in spots. 
But there are signs of clearing and the fog should lift and scatter 
late this morning. A strong upper level ridge will bring another 
sunny and warm day today with highs again in the 50s to lower 60s. 


The upper level ridge will shift east tonight as a weak cold front 
advances offshore. This front will bring more clouds and a few 
showers to western Washington on Tuesday. This system looks pretty meager on 
the infrared satellite and forecast quantitative precipitation forecast amounts are light...trace to few 
hundredths. There will be some lingering moisture Tuesday night with 
isolated showers mainly in the Cascades. Wednesday is looking drier as a 
weak upper level ridge develops over western Washington. 33 


Long term...high pressure aloft builds Thursday through Saturday 
for a period of dry and mild weather. Inversions will likely result 
in some morning low clouds and fog...otherwise mostly clear 
afternoons. High temperatures will be above average in the low to 
middle 50s. 


Long range models show the ridge breaking down Saturday night and 
Sunday as a moist frontal system brings rain back into western Washington. A 
trailing system lifts into b.C. Which may bring additional moisture 
into western Washington beyond Sunday. There is a chance of rain early next week 
and above average temperatures are likely. Mercer 


&& 


Hydrology...flooding is not expected for the next 7 days. 


&& 


Aviation...an upper level ridge is centered over Idaho today with 
southwest flow aloft over western Washington. Flow will turn more 
westerly Tuesday as a weak front moves into the region and 
dissipates. Air mass stable and dry with areas of fog/stratus below 
1000 feet this morning. Increasing clouds all levels tonight. 


There is still fog at most terminals but a burst of southerly wind 
early this morning lifted much of the fog into a stratus deck. Fog 
and stratus is mainly over marine areas and land areas near the 
water. The fog will dissipate later this morning giving sunny skies 
over the majority of western Washington. Increasing high and middle 
level clouds tonight. 


Ksea...the terminal is on the edge of a fog patch and could slide in 
and out of the fog until 18z or so. Sunny after that. Southerly wind 
6-10 knots. High and middle clouds will form a ceiling sometime tonight 
and the clouds will thicken and lower Tuesday. Chb 


&& 


Marine...an approaching front has turned wind southerly this 
morning and winds have increased to Small Craft Advisory strength on 
the coast. An advisory is in effect on the coast today. The front is 
weak so for now have limited winds elsewhere to 10-20 knots. There will 
be a brief surge of westerly wind 10-20 knots in the Strait tonight and 
Tuesday after the front passes. 


Offshore flow will resume Wednesday and persist through Friday at 
least. Another front will approach the area on Saturday. Chb 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington....dense fog advisory in effect until 10 am PST this morning for 
The Lowlands. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory coast.
