NWS Forecaster Discussion




Area forecast discussion 
National Weather Service Seattle Washington 
922 PM PDT Tuesday Jul 7 2015 


Synopsis...high pressure will maintain mostly dry and warm weather 
across western Washington through Thursday. The stalled low off the 
California coast will eject northeast into the Great Basin Friday 
into Saturday. Moisture from this system may bring some showers to 
the Cascades at times. Another upper low off the British Columbia 
coast will dive southeast into the Pacific northwest Sunday and 
Monday giving more seasonable temperatures and a threat of showers. 
The low will kick east on Tuesday with a warming trend and dry 
weather. 


&& 


Short term...a weakening upper ridge along 130w this evening will 
move east through the region Wednesday night and early Thursday. Low- 
level onshore flow will weaken as the ridge moves through the area 
providing warming...especially in the interior...Wednesday and 
Thursday. A pattern change will commence Thursday evening as an 
upper level trough drops into the northeast Pacific and low level 
flow becomes strongly onshore. 


Light north flow aloft is allowing smoke from large wildfires east 
of Whistler British Columbia to drop southward into western Washington. The smoke 
layer is rather high based over the central Puget Sound sound region...but 
bases are at or below around 4000 feet around the San Juans and in 
western Whatcom County. Subsidence to the east of the approaching 
upper ridge appears that it will allow the base of the smoke layer 
to lower across the area later this evening through Wednesday 
morning...and areas in the interior from the northern olympic 
peninsula into western Whatcom County...western Skagit 
County...Island County...and the San Juans may see some visibility 
restrictions at the surface at times. An update was made to the 
grids...northern interior zones...and state forecast for tonight 
through Wednesday morning. Light north to northeast flow on 
Wednesday may keep a thin smoke layer hanging around into Wednesday 
evening...so forecast temperatures Wednesday afternoon over portions 
of the interior may be 2-3 degrees too little high. 
However...confidence is not high enough to make a temperature 
forecast change at this time. 


The upper ridge will move east across the region Wednesday night 
into Thursday giving a very warm day in the interior of western 
Washington. Incoming guidance from the nam12 shows upper 80s in the 
interior from about Seattle or Everett southward on Thursday. Strong 
onshore flow will develop late Thursday afternoon into Friday 
resulting in significant cooling on Friday. Nam12 koth-ksea pressure 
gradient forecasts rise to over 6 mb which would suggest that 
stratus will push inland all the way to the Cascades and Friday may 
have difficulty clearing. 


A closed upper level low off the California coast will eject inland over the 
Great Basin on Thursday into Friday. Most models take the bulk of 
moisture through Oregon/Nevada/Idaho. A trough off the b.C. Coast 
will provide stable low level onshore flow Thursday and Friday. 
However...the Cascade crest will remain above the marine layer and 
there could be enough instability to trigger some thunderstorms. 
Given the spotty quantitative precipitation forecast models show by models near the crest... 
thunderstorms will stay in the forecast. Albrecht/Mercer 


Long term...from the afternoon long term discussion...a trough off 
the b.C. Coast will dive southeastward on Saturday with S-SW flow aloft over 
Washington. This will likely induce stronger low level onshore flow with yet 
cooler high temperatures...possibly only reaching the middle or upper 
70s. The flow aloft is marginal for thunderstorms on the west side of 
the Cascade crest. Showers were introduced Friday night with the 
first low passing mainly to the south. 


The trough off the b.C. Coast will move over the region Sunday and 
Monday. Models have trended a bit stronger with the system...enough 
so that adding chance probability of precipitation seems prudent for most the area. There 
could be enough instability for thunderstorms over the Cascades but 
the flow could be more southwesterly which will push any convection 
off to the east side. Precipitation was limited to just showers for the 
time being. 


Models indicate the trough will move east on Tuesday with a weak 
ridge building across the area. It should be dry and warmer 
temperatures. Some extended models suggest this could be the start 
of another period of above normal temperatures. Mercer 




&& 


Aviation...an upper level ridge centered offshore will result in 
continued northerly flow aloft. The low level flow will be weak onshore. 
Anticipate areas of MVFR ceilings to develop over the coast after 0600 
UTC. The low clouds will become a little more widespread after 0900 
UTC. Ceilings should be mainly near 1k feet by 1200 UTC. There will also 
be areas of fog reducing visibilities to 1-3sm on the coast. 
Overall...there should be less stratus over the interior Wednesday morning 
than Tuesday morning. 


Meanwhile...smoke from numerous wildfires in British Columbia continued 
to stream across much of the area. The smoke should be denser Wednesday 
morning than than on Tuesday. Also...the smoke is anticipated to become 
nearly surface-based across the far northern part of the forecast area 
/bordering Mainland British Columbia/. This will impact kbli...where 
visibilities will likely become restricted. Otherwise...the smoke layer 
will settle lower overnight...with ceilings anticipated to lower into 
the 2500-3500 foot range north of kbvs. 


Ksea...VFR overnight. There might be scattered clouds near 1k feet 
over the terminal for a brief time Wednesday morning. 


&& 


Marine... high pressure along or just off the Washington coast with 
lower pressure east of the Cascades will result in onshore flow of varying 
strength through this weekend. 


&& 


Sew watches/warnings/advisories... 
Washington...none. 
Pz...Small Craft Advisory in effect for the central and eastern 
Strait of Juan Delaware fuca.
