NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
400 am PDT Thursday Oct 30 2014 


Synopsis...a wet Pacific frontal system will bring significant 
rainfall amounts to western Washington later today through Friday 
morning. The front will move through the area Friday morning with 
the steady rain changing to showers. Partly sunny skies and just a 
chance of showers on Saturday. A weak system will arrive Sunday for 
more rain...and generally wet weather will be the rule for at least 
the first part of next week. 


&& 


Short term...satellite imagery shows cloudy skies over western 
Washington early this morning. Doppler areas picking up just some 
isolated areas of rain over the interior with most of the 
precipitation echoes off the coast at 10z/3 am. Temperatures were 
mostly in the lower to middle 50s. 


Cold front off the coast this morning near 132w with moist 
southwesterly flow aloft ahead of the front. The southwesterly flow 
aloft has tapped into some sub tropical moisture south of 30n off 
the California coast but tpw imagery shows the tap is thinning out 
early this morning. Narrow core of 1 to 1.5 tpw values embedded in 
the southwesterly flow aloft with most of the area out ahead of the 
front in the 0.75 to 1 inch range. Model 850 mb winds picking up 
over the area this morning to near 40 knots along the south slopes 
of the Olympics but then diminish down to 20-25 knots this 
afternoon. This combined with the thinning sub tropical tap will 
result in less rainfall over the mountains than previously 
anticipated today. Current observations show it is still not raining 
along the north Oregon coast and with the Doppler radars showing 
pretty disorganized precipitation echoes will word the forecast as 
rain as times this morning with the steady rain after the morning 
commute late this morning or into the early afternoon hours. High 
temperatures will be near 60. 


Front slowly moving east tonight with rain out ahead of the front 
over the entire area. The fronts eastward movement in the last 
couple of runs has picked up with the front right along the coast by 
12z/5am Friday. Model 850 mb winds continue to be rather weak...15 
to 25 knots out of the south so will cut back on the quantitative precipitation forecast amounts in 
the Olympics and Cascades overnight. With the rain and cloud cover 
temperatures will remain in the lower to middle 50s overnight. 


Front moving through western Washington Friday morning with the 
steady rain giving way to showers. Storm total rainfall in The 
Lowlands is expected to be in the 0.75 to 1.50 inch range with 1.5 
to 3 inches in the mountains. There is a good chance Seattle will 
pick up enough rain for this October to break into the top 10 
wettest at sea-tac. There will be little temperature spread on 
Friday with the cooler air mass aloft moving in behind the front 
with highs remaining in the 50s. 


Upper level trough remaining over western Washington Friday night 
keeping a chance of showers in the forecast. The air mass will be 
rather cool with snow levels lowering down to around 4500 feet but 
the moisture will be limited so not expecting much in the way of new 
snow in the mountains. Lows Saturday morning will be on the cool 
side with the colder locations dipping into the upper 30s. 


Models having a hard time with the timing of the trough passage 
through western Washington. Last couple of runs of the GFS have 
slowed down the trough passage to midday Saturday while the European model (ecmwf) 
does not bring the trough through until late Saturday. Both models 
have the jet well to the south of the area with little in the way of 
dynamics over western Washington. Will stay with the current 
forecast that has the shower chances confined to the southern 
portion of the area and the Cascades on Saturday. Highs will be in 
the 50s. 


Long term...confidence not very high in the extended period early 
on with the models losing their continuity both run to run and 
among themselves on the 00z run. The European model (ecmwf) is slower in exiting the 
trough on Saturday which slows down the approach of the next system 
which was timed into the area on Sunday. Now is it Sunday night into 
Monday. The GFS is a little faster with this system but still slower 
than previous models. With the GFS solution showing the most 
continuity at this point will stay with the likely probability of precipitation on Sunday. 
Models come into better agreement with a wet day on Monday with a 
system moving through the area Monday night/Tuesday morning. Both 
the GFS and the European model (ecmwf) are showing an atmospheric river scenario 
settling up for the middle of next week with the European model (ecmwf) being the 
stronger and the wetter of the two models keeping rain in the 
forecast through at least the middle of next week. Felton 


&& 


Hydrology...a rather slow moving frontal system will bring steady 
precipitation western Washington through Friday morning. The largest 
amounts will fall over the olympic and north Cascades with up to 3 
inches of rain in the next 24 hours. The snow level will remain high 
7000 to 8000 feet. This amount of rain could once again drive the 
exceptionally flood-prone Skokomish River above flood stage. The 
Flood Watch for the skokomish will continue through this forecast 
package. In addition the Nooksack river will probably rise 
significantly. Flooding there is unlikely but not out of the 
question...and a hydrologic outlook addresses that situation. 


At this time flooding is not expected on the other rivers in the 
forecast for the next 7 days. Felton 


&& 


Aviation...SW flow aloft. The air mass is stable. Moisture will 
increase this morning as rain begins with ceilings eventually lowering 
through the day....with low level southeast flow off the Cascades it might 
take quite awhile to drop up and down the I-5 corridor but the 
mountains ought to be obscured in precipitation. 


Ksea...rain will develop before daybreak. With low level easterly 
flow ceilings should remain fairly high until afternoon when the front 
moves trough the interior of western Washington. Ceilings will drop further tonight 
in light onshore flow and stable air. 


&& 


Marine...a front will move slowly through western Washington today with 
Small Craft Advisory level winds most waters. Weak high pressure will 
build into the area Friday and Sat. An active period of weather is 
expected next week as a series of fronts move through the area. 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...Flood Watch in effect from Thursday evening through late 
Friday night for Mason County. 


Pz...small craft advisories are in effect for all waters except the 
Puget Sound sound/Hood Canal.
