NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
330 am PDT Friday Apr 18 2014 


Synopsis...showers associated with a Puget Sound sound convergence zone 
over King County will diminish this morning. Otherwise drier 
weather is forecast today with weak high pressure overhead. The next 
cold front will arrive on Saturday. A broad upper level trough 
will bring showery weather early next week. 


&& 


Short term...showers are mainly tied to the Puget Sound sound convergence 
zone over King County early this morning. The pscz should diminish 
later this morning as onshore flow weakens and a weak upper level 
ridge moves inland. We should see partly sunny skies today with 
highs in the middle 50s to lower 60s. Dry weather will continue tonight 
with lows dropping into the upper 30s to middle 40s. 


A cold front will reach the coast Saturday morning then push 
into the interior during the afternoon. The trailing upper level 
trough will maintain showers across western Washington Sat night. 


Another cold front will reach the coast on Sunday then weaken as 
pivots and becomes north-south orientated offshore. Models keeps the 
interior mainly dry. 


An upper level low over the NE Pacific will start to shift inland on 
Monday which will result in isolated to scattered showers across the 
region. 33 


Long term...the air mass will remain cool and unstable on Tuesday as an 
upper level low crosses the Pacific northwest. Models continue to show a few 
showers across western Washington over this period. A weak ridge may bring 
drier weather next Wednesday...but then another frontal system is 
slated to arrive Wednesday night or Thursday. Timing of this next system 
is still unclear in the models. Models are showing another 
cool/showery weather pattern next weekend as another upper level 
trough forms over the Pacific northwest. 33 


&& 


Hydrology...river flooding is unlikely for the next 7 days. 


The exception is the North Fork of the stillaguamish river east of 
the sunrise 530 landslide near Oso where a Flood Warning remains in 
effect until further notice. Flooding continues for this river as a 
result of water pooled behind the debris dam that partially blocks 
the river. 


The North Fork of the stillaguamish near Arlington crested at 7.4 
feet early this morning and is now falling. The river level will 
continue falling today as high pressure moves over the area. A 
front will bring another batch of rain Saturday afternoon and 
evening. This is expected to cause the river to rise about a foot 
Saturday night. The river will begin falling again Sunday and 
continue to fall early next week as drier weather prevails. 


&& 


Aviation...weak upper level ridge offshore moving towards the coast 
this afternoon and inland this evening. Northwesterly flow aloft 
becoming southwesterly Saturday morning. Convergence zone north and 
east of kbfi early this morning will move into the Cascades by 15z. 


Ceilings near and just south of the convergence zone near 2000 feet 
early this morning. Away from the convergence zone ceilings 
generally in the 3500 to 5000 foot range. Ceilings will improve this 
morning with clouds scattering out this afternoon with an upper 
level ridge approaching the coast. Middle level cloud deck out ahead 
of the next system arriving Saturday morning. 


Ksea...ceilings around 2000 feet early this morning with ceilings 
improving to 3500 to 5000 feet during the morning hours. Clouds 
scattering out late morning and afternoon hours. Southwest wind 6 to 
10 knots becoming light midday. Winds going northwesterly 4 to 8 
knots late afternoon and evening hours. Felton 


&& 


Marine...surface high pressure over the waters today will shift 
east tonight. A strong cold front will move through the waters on 
Saturday with Small Craft Advisory winds expected over all of the 
waters. High pressure will rebuild on Sunday. A weaker system will 
arrive later Monday or Monday night. 


A large swell train behind the cold front on Saturday will arrive 
along the Washington coast Saturday night and continue into Sunday. 
Swells in the 16 to 19 foot range are expected. This is a razor clam 
dig weekend for Twin Harbors...copalis and mocrocks beaches. Felton 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...Flood Warning remains in effect for the North Fork of the 
stillaguamish river east of the sunrise 530 landslide. 


Pz...Small Craft Advisory central and eastern Strait this morning. 
Small Craft Advisory coastal waters and West Entrance to the 
Strait for hazardous seas this morning.
