NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
930 am PDT Wednesday Apr 23 2014 


Synopsis...a warm front will spread rain into western Washington 
from the south this afternoon and tonight. A cold front will move 
inland Thursday morning. An upper level trough digging into the 
Pacific northwest on Friday will keep scattered showers in the 
forecast. A third frontal system will bring another round of more 
organized rainfall to the area Saturday afternoon into Sunday 
morning. 


&& 


Short term...a weak upper level disturbance is producing isolated 
to scattered showers across western Washington this morning. Rain will then 
increase this afternoon and evening as a warm front lifts north 
into the region. Models show rain spreading from south to north 
through this evening. The cold front will then push inland Thursday 
morning for more showers and breezy to windy conditions. Snow levels 
will raise to around 5000 feet with the warm front today...then drop 
back down to around 4000 feet behind the cold front on Thursday. 


The air mass will remain cool and unstable on Friday as an upper 
level low over the NE Pacific moves inland. Expect isolated to scattered 
showers again with temperatures in the 50s. 33 


Long term...previous discussion...the active weather pattern will 
continue into early next week. The digging upper level over the West 
Coast will keep showers across western Washington on Saturday. A 
frontal system will move inland Saturday evening bringing another 
round of organized rainfall. Onshore flow and zonal flow aloft on 
Sunday will keep showers mainly over the coast and the mountains. 
Another frontal system will affect the region Monday or Monday night with 
medium range models hinting at an upper level ridge building over 
the region on Tuesday for drier and warmer weather. 


&& 


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


The exception remains 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. 


At 9 am...the North Fork of the stillaguamish near Arlington was 
at 4.7 feet...or 2980 cfs. The North Fork of the stillaguamish river 
near Oso was at 216.2 feet at 1684 cfs. The pool east of the slide was 
282.5 feet this morning. 


A warm front will spread rain into the area tonight...followed by a 
cold front Thursday morning. This system will bring around 1.00 inch 
of rainfall to the area through Thursday afternoon. This is expected 
to produce rises on the stillaguamish river beginning this evening 
through Thursday. The latest hydrograph shows the stillaguamish near 
Arlington cresting Thursday morning or afternoon around 5 feet. 


&& 


Aviation...a weak upper ridge will give moderate westerly flow 
aloft over western Washington today. Upper flow will turn more 
southwesterly tonight as a weather system moves through the area. 
Scattered showers today will give way to more widespread rain this 
afternoon and tonight as a warm front moves south to north. At the 
surface a low pressure center will approach the coast today then move 
northeast into Vancouver Island tonight...giving moderate to strong 
southeast winds. 


Generally VFR ceilings or no ceilings...except occasional MVFR in 
showers. Clouds will increase and ceilings will lower this afternoon 
as rain moves in from the south. MVFR ceilings are likely all night 
into Thursday morning. 


Ksea...VFR today with a chance of transient MVFR in showers. MVFR 
ceilings 2-3k feet after 02z or so. Rain will reduce visibility to 3sm 
at times tonight. Southerly wind 10-15 knots. Chb 


&& 


Marine...an approaching front and moderately unstable conditions 
are keeping Small Craft Advisory strength winds going on the coast 
and in Puget Sound sound. Advisories are in effect for these areas today. 


Gradients increase this afternoon and tonight as a warm front moves 
over the area from the south. This will bring more widespread Small 
Craft Advisory winds. Winds could touch gale on the coast. A gale 
watch is in effect for the coast and West Entrance tonight. Will 
decide about the watch and other advisories with the afternoon 
forecast. 


After a lull in the action Friday...another front will spread Small 
Craft Advisory strength winds over the area on Saturday. Chb 


&& 


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 coast...West Entrance...and Puget Sound sound. 
Gale watch coast and West Entrance tonight. 
Small Craft Advisory for rough Grays Harbor bar.
