NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
348 PM PDT Friday Apr 29 2016 


Synopsis...a strong upper ridge will bring dry warmer weather 
Saturday through Monday. A chance of showers will return Tuesday 
through Thursday of next week...with moist southerly flow aloft 
and low level onshore flow. 


&& 


Short term...showers will quickly end this evening as a weather 
system departs. High pressure aloft will build over the Pacific 
northwest Saturday with northerly low level flow developing. Some 
clouds will likely linger in the morning...then skies should 
become mostly sunny. Highs will warm into the 60s. 


The upper ridge will strengthen over the area on Sunday with 
increasing low level offshore flow. This will bring another sunny 
day with highs warming well into the 70s or even lower 80s in the 
usual warmer spots. 


Monday will be the warmest day of the week. The coast will see a 
little cooling as offshore flow weakens but inland should be a 
couple degrees warmer. The GFS has been hinting as possible 
isolated convection late in the day as southerly flow aloft 
develops but the forecast is dry for now which is more in line 
with the European model (ecmwf). Schneider 


Long term...an upper trough will approach from the west on 
Tuesday with increasingly moist southerly flow aloft for a chance 
of showers. Increasing low level onshore flow will cool highs on 
the order of 10 degrees from Monday. 


This general pattern will continue on Wednesday...moist southerly 
flow aloft for a chance of showers. The upper trough offshore will 
turn into a cutoff upper low well to the south on Thursday and 
Friday. This will keep most of the shower threat to the south but 
some activity could certainly sneak up from the south or east. The 
best chances will be over the Cascades. Schneider 


&& 


Aviation...upper level trough over eastern Washington slowly 
moving east with upper level ridge building offshore. Light flow 
aloft becoming northwesterly. Low level onshore flow continuing 
into Saturday. 


Scattered to broken layer near 3500 feet with another scattered to 
broken layer near 6000 feet. With light onshore flow ceilings 
lowering to near 2000 feet 10z-18z Saturday. Clouds scattering out 
midday Saturday. 


Ksea...ceilings around 3000 feet lifting to 5000-6000 feet this 
evening. Ceilings lower back down to near 2000 feet around 12z 
Saturday. Light northerly winds becoming variable after 06z. 
Felton 


&& 


Marine...low level onshore flow pattern continuing into Saturday 
with small craft advisories over the coastal waters and in the 
Strait of Juan Delaware fuca. Onshore flow turns northwesterly on 
Saturday with high pressure building into southern British 
Columbia. Low level flow turning offshore on Sunday with thermally 
induced trough along the coast. A return to low level onshore flow 
will occur later Monday into Tuesday. Felton 


&& 


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

from Cape Flattery to James Island 10 to 60 nm-coastal
