NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
948 am PDT Sat Apr 25 2015 


Synopsis...an upper low over the area will move into eastern 
Washington late today or early this evening. High pressure aloft 
will prevail tonight through Monday. However...a warm front will 
bring some rain to the area on Sunday. Look for temperatures to 
climb well above normal on Monday. 


&& 


Short term... 
there was a stationary batch of showers...locally heavy...over 
western Skagit and Snohomish counties. The showers were occurring 
in the vicinity of the upper low. Katx radar estimated localized 
rainfall amounts of up to 0.90 inch in the three hour period 
ending about 9 am PDT....however the observed amounts were much 
less. Per the dual pol Hydro class data...it looks like the radar 
precipitation estimates were being contaminated by hail. This batch of 
showers /if it holds together/ should drift east-southeast with 
the upper low. 


The air mass was destabilizing over the County Warning Area at this time...thanks 
to the presence of the upper low and surface heating. Therefore 
anticipate scattered showers to break out over the County Warning Area within the 
next 2 to 3 hours. The current forecast has a mention of thunderstorms for 
the Cascades but cannot completely rule out an isolated lightning 
strike elsewhere...especially in the vicinity of the upper low. Any 
thunderstorms that do develop over The Lowlands will contain a large 
amount of small hail. 


Look for the upper low to move into eastern Washington late today 
or early this evening. An upper ridge will build into the area 
from the west in its wake for drier conditions. 


A warm front will clip western Washington on Sunday for a little light 
rain...mainly over the olympic peninsula. There is a chance of rain 
in the interior as the front moves north into b.C. But precipitation 
will remain light. 


Monday will be warmer and drier with upper level ridging over the 
Pacific northwest. What is left of the warm front may clip the coast Sunday 
morning...otherwise expect dry weather as we head into the 
afternoon. The warmer air mass will boost temperatures with highs in the 
low to middle 70s in the interior. 33 


Long term from the previous discussion... 
the upper level ridge will shift farther inland toward Idaho on 
Tuesday while a trough digs offshore. Models show a cold front 
passing through western Washington for a chance of showers. It is looking 
wetter and cooler over this period with the GFS and European model (ecmwf) now 
aligned. 


A mean long wave trough will persist over the Pacific northwest through the 
long term period. There is a chance of showers through the 
forecast with temperatures close to normal. No major changes were 
made from the previous forecast. 33 


&& 


Aviation...an upper level low producing a cluster of showers over 
northwest Washington this morning will drift southeast into eastern 
Washington by tonight. Light flow aloft will become northerly this 
afternoon. Air mass moist and somewhat unstable. 


Multiple cloud layers today between 4000 and 8000 feet with ceilings 
as low as 2000 feet in scattered showers popping up around the area 
through this afternoon. The shower activity will decrease this 
evening. 


Ksea...southerly winds 4 to 8 knots becoming northwesterly in the 
late afternoon or evening hours. Ceilings between 4000 and 8000 feet 
with a chance of brief ceilings near 2000 feet with isolated 
showers. The cluster of showers associated with the upper level low 
will likely pass north of SeaTac. Jsmith 


&& 


Marine...weak high pressure will build over the waters today and 
remain over the waters tonight giving lighter winds to the area. 
There is a chance of Small Craft Advisory level winds in the central and eastern 
Strait later this evening...but I have held off issuing an advisory 
for now since the winds are marginal. A weakening front will move 
through the area Sunday afternoon and evening. This should bring 
Small Craft Advisory winds to the coastal waters...and possibly 
parts of the northern interior waters. 


A second frontal system will reach the area Tuesday. Models are 
continuing to have trouble settling on the timing and strength of 
this system so confidence remains low for the wind forecast on 
Tuesday. High pressure will build in behind the front on Wednesday. 
Jsmith/Felton 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...none. 
Pz...none.
