AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION

NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SEATTLE WA

300 PM PST THU DEC 18 2014



.SYNOPSIS...A FRONT WILL BRING RAIN AND LOCALLY WINDY CONDITIONS TO 

WESTERN WASHINGTON THROUGH TONIGHT. AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH WILL BRING 

SCATTERED SHOWERS ON FRIDAY. STRONG MOIST WEST FLOW ALOFT OVER THE 

NORTHEAST PACIFIC WILL BRING WIND AND RAIN INTO WESTERN WASHINGTON  

THIS WEEKEND. A BROAD UPPER LEVEL RIDGE WILL REMAIN OVER THE REGION 

EARLY NEXT WEEK FOR NOT QUITE AS WET WEATHER. COOLER TEMPERATURES 

ARE POSSIBLE BY MID WEEK.



&&



.SHORT TERM...WARM ADVECTION RAIN IS FILLING IN ACROSS WRN WA THIS 

AFTERNOON. VISIBLE SATELLITE IMAGERY IMPLIES THE SURFACE FRONT IS 

NOW JUST INSIDE 130 W HEADING TOWARD WRN WA. IR/WV IMAGERY SHOWS A 

WAVE FORMING ON THE SRN EXTENT OF THE FRONTAL BAND AS IT BEGINS TO 

SPLIT. THIS WILL SLOW THE PROGRESS OF THE SYSTEM EWD BUT ALSO RESULT 

IN WEAKER FLOW ALOFT SO OROGRAPHICS WILL NOT PLAY AS BIG A ROLE AS 

USUAL. MODELS STILL SHOW 12 HOUR QPF TOTALS RANGING FROM ROUGHLY ONE 

HALF TO ONE INCH LIQUID WITH LOCALLY HIGHER AMOUNTS. PLACES WHERE 

THIS FALLS AS ALL SNOW COULD SEE UP TO 1 FOOT. SOME OF THE HIGHER 

SKI RESORTS AND S/SW FACING SLOPES ARE MOST LIKELY TO SEE THESE TYPE 

OF SNOW TOTALS. THE SNOW LEVEL IS DIFFICULT TO PINPOINT WITH THIS 

SYSTEM WITH SOME FLUCTUATION LIKELY BETWEEN 3500 AND 5000 FEET. 

TEMPERATURES IN MOST PASSES ARE STILL IN THE UPPER 20S TO AROUND 30 

DEGREES...SO PRECIPITATION WILL LIKELY START AS SNOW EVEN AT 

SNOQUALMIE PASS. A COUPLE INCHES MAY FALL...THEN SNOW LEVELS SHOULD 

GENERALLY START TO RISE AS WARMER AIR STARTS TO WORK INLAND. THE 

MAIN SNOW LEVEL SHOULD HOVER AROUND 4500 TO 5000 FEET TONIGHT WHICH 

PUTS STEVENS PASS ON THE EDGE. UP TO 6 INCHES STILL SEEMS POSSIBLE 

DEPENDING ON HOW MUCH RAIN MIXES IN. SNOW LEVELS WILL FALL BACK DOWN 

TO AROUND 3000 FEET BEHIND THE FRONT BUT ONLY MINOR ADDITIONAL 

ACCUMULATIONS EXPECTED FRIDAY MORNING. 



SE PRESSURE GRADIENTS WILL CONTINUE TO TIGHTEN THIS EVENING. SE 

WINDS IN THE ADMIRALTY INLET AREA AND SAN JUANS ARE CURRENTLY 

GUSTING INTO THE LOW 30 MPH RANGE AND SHOULD PICK UP CONSIDERABLY 

THIS EVENING. THE WIND ADVISORY WILL REMAIN IN PLACE FOR GUSTS TO 45 

MPH ACROSS THE N INTERIOR...EXCLUDING WRN SKAGIT COUNTY. STRONGEST 

WINDS WILL BE ALONG THE WATER AND AT PLACES EXPOSED TO SE WINDS. THE 

WIND ADVISORY RUNS THROUGH MIDNIGHT TONIGHT.



IT WILL BE COOL AND SHOWERY ON FRIDAY AS THE FRONT MOVES E AND AN 

UPPER TROUGH REACHES THE AREA. COLD TOPPED CU OFFSHORE INDICATES 

UNSTABLE CONDITIONS BEHIND THE TROUGH. MODEL LI'S ARE NEGATIVE OVER 

THE COASTAL WATERS BUT NOT OVER THE LAND AREAS. BUFFER FORECAST 

SOUNDINGS SHOW THE UNSTABLE LAYER CAPPED AT 700 MB SO THUNDERSTORMS 

WOULD SEEM UNLIKELY. 



STRONG AND MOIST WLY FLOW DRIVEN BY A STRONG 180+ KT JET WILL STEER 

A WARM FRONT INTO WRN WA ON SATURDAY. TIMING IS A LITTLE FASTER WITH 

MOST MODELS DEVELOPING WIDESPREAD RAIN ACROSS WRN WA BY LATE FRIDAY 

NIGHT OR EARLY SATURDAY MORNING. INITIALLY THE FLOW WILL BE OUT OF 

THE S/SW AND STRONG AT 40 TO 50 KT. THIS WILL PRODUCE HEFTY 

OROGRAPHICALLY ENHANCED RAINFALL AMOUNTS ALONG S/SW FACING SLOPES OF 

THE OLYMPICS AND CASCADES. THIS WILL ALMOST CERTAINLY CAUSE FLOODING 

ON THE SKOKOMISH RIVER BY LATER SATURDAY NIGHT. THE FLOW TURNS MORE 

WLY SATURDAY NIGHT AND SUNDAY WHICH IS A FAVORABLE DIRECTION FOR 

HEAVY RAIN IN MORE BASINS ACROSS THE W SLOPES OF THE CASCADES. THIS 

WILL CAUSE ADDITIONAL FLOOD CONCERNS. REFER TO THE EXTENDED FLOOD 

OUTLOOK STATEMENT AND HYDRO DISCUSSION BELOW FOR FURTHER DETAILS. 



THIS NEXT SYSTEM WILL ALSO HAVE STRONGER SE PRESSURE GRADIENTS AND 

STRONGER FLOW ALOFT AHEAD OF THE COLD FRONT ON SATURDAY. MESO MODELS 

ARE SHOWING HIGH END ADVISORY LEVEL TYPE WINDS BUT HIGH WIND IN A 

COUPLE SPOTS CANNOT BE RULED OUT EITHER. THIS IS STILL A COUPLE DAYS 

OUT AND WILL OPT TO MAINTAIN A HIGH END ADVISORY WIND FORECAST FOR 

THE COAST/N INTERIOR. PUGET SOUND WILL ALSO BECOME 

BREEZY...ESPECIALLY AS GRADIENTS BECOME MORE SLY SATURDAY NIGHT AND 

SUNDAY. BUT FORECAST GRADIENTS DO NOT SEEM TO SUPPORT EVEN ADVISORY 

LEVEL WINDS FOR PUGET SOUND AT THIS TIME. 



THE BAROCLINIC BOUNDARY WILL START TO DRIFT SWD SUNDAY AFTERNOON 

DIRECTING THE HEAVIEST PRECIPITATION INTO THE WA CASCADES FROM 

ABOUT KING COUNTY SWD INTO THE N/CENTRAL OREGON CASCADES. THIS WILL 

HELP MITIGATE FLOODING CONCERNS ACROSS THE FAR N ALTHOUGH DETAILS ON 

WHERE THIS BOUNDARY SETS UP REMAINS UNCERTAIN. THERE DOES SEEM TO BE 

PRETTY GOOD CONSENSUS EVOLVING AMONG THE MODELS THAT THE HEAVY 

MOUNTAIN RAIN WILL TAPER OFF FROM N TO S ON SUNDAY AND MOSTLY SHUT 

OFF BY SUNDAY NIGHT AS THE RIDGE BEGINS TO BUILD. 



.LONG TERM...THE EXTENDED FORECAST REMAINS CHALLENGING WITH A WIDE 

RANGE OF SOLUTIONS AMONG THE MODELS. THERE IS SOME AGREEMENT THAT 

MONDAY WILL GENERALLY FEATURE SHOWERS OR A LULL IN RAINFALL AS 

HIGHER PRESSURE BUILDS ALOFT. MODELS DO NOT AGREE ON THE STRENGTH OR 

TRACK OF THE NEXT SYSTEM APPROACHING FROM THE W ON TUESDAY. THE 

LATEST 12/18Z GFS BRINGS THE LOW IN FURTHER N WHICH WOULD STILL 

PRODUCE WARM ADVECTION RAINFALL ACROSS THE AREA...THOUGH NOT AS MUCH 

AS WAS SHOWN BY PREVIOUS SOLUTIONS.



MOST MODELS DIG A COLD UPPER TROUGH SWD OUT OF B.C. THROUGH WRN WA 

ON WEDNESDAY. THIS COULD USHER IN COOLER AIR BUT MODELS DISAGREE ON 

THE EXTENT OF RIDGING OFFSHORE AND WHERE IT SETS UP. THE ECMWF 

CONTINUES TO BE ONE OF THE COLDER SOLUTIONS AND HAS THE KONA LOW CUT 

OFF FURTHER W...THUS A FURTHER W DEVELOPMENT OF THE UPPER RIDGE. THE 

KONA LOW IS FURTHER E ON THE GFS40 WITH A RIDGE NEAR 135-140 WHICH 

WILL STILL USHER IN COOLER NLY FLOW BUT PERHAPS LESS CHANCE OF 

PRECIPITATION. IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE HOW THIS PANS OUT BUT A 

SWITCH TO COOLER OR COLD TEMPERATURES IS A POSSIBILITY BY THURSDAY. 

POPS WERE TRIMMED WAY BACK AND MAY NEED TO BE REMOVED ALTOGETHER IF 

MODEL TRENDS CONTINUE. SNOW LEVELS WILL ALSO BE MUCH 

LOWER...POSSIBLY TO SEA LEVEL...BUT IT IS VERY UNCLEAR AS TO HOW 

MUCH MOISTURE WILL REMAIN BY THAT TIME.



&&



.HYDROLOGY...THOUGH RAIN WILL FALL AT TIMES...FLOODING IS UNLIKELY 

ON ANY RIVER THROUGH SATURDAY. 



HEAVY RAIN COULD CAUSE FLOODING BY LATE THIS WEEKEND. A WEATHER 

SYSTEM WITH STRONG WESTERLY FLOW ALOFT WILL BRING HEAVY RAIN AT 

TIMES TO THE COAST AND OLYMPICS ON SATURDAY. HEAVY RAIN WILL SPREAD 

INTO THE CASCADES SATURDAY AFTERNOON. 



MODELS CURRENTLY TAPER RAIN OVER THE OLYMPICS ON SUNDAY BUT KEEP 

HEAVY RAIN GOING IN THE CASCADES...ESPECIALLY OVER THE CASCADES FROM 

ABOUT KING COUNTY SOUTH. THE TOTAL MODEL RAINFALL OVER ABOUT 48 

HOURS FROM SATURDAY MORNING THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT AMOUNTS TO AROUND 

FOUR TO SIX INCHES OVER THE OLYMPICS AND CENTRAL CASCADES WITH A 

TEN-INCH BULLSEYE OVER MOUNT RAINIER. THE SNOW LEVEL WILL BE ABOVE 

5000 FEET ON SATURDAY AND SUNDAY BEFORE FALLING TO 3500 FEET OR SO 

SUNDAY NIGHT. 



THESE RAINFALL AMOUNTS ARE ENOUGH TO CAUSE FLOODING. AT THIS TIME

THE RIVERS MOST LIKELY TO FLOOD ARE THE ONES FLOWING OFF THE

CASCADES OF KING...PIERCE...AND LEWIS COUNTIES...AS WELL AS THE

UNUSUALLY FLOOD-PRONE SKOKOMISH RIVER IN MASON COUNTY. ANY FLOODING 

WOULD LIKELY BEGIN AS EARLY AS SATURDAY NIGHT ON THE SKOKOMISH 

RIVER. THE CASCADE RIVERS COULD FLOOD SUNDAY WITH CRESTS SUNDAY 

NIGHT OR MONDAY.



A COOLER AND DRIER AIR MASS IS FORECAST TO BE OVER THE AREA NEXT 

WEEK. AFTER MONDAY THE RIVERS WILL RECEDE AND ANY FURTHER FLOODING 

IS UNLIKELY. BURKE



&&



.AVIATION...A STRONG PACIFIC FRONTAL SYSTEM OVER THE OFFSHORE WATERS 

WILL MOVE ACROSS THE AREA TONIGHT. SOUTHWESTERLY FLOW ALOFT WILL 

INCREASE AND BECOMING STRONG THIS EVENING THEN BECOMING MODERATE ON 

FRIDAY. THE AIR MASS IS MOIST AND STABLE...IT WILL BECOME SOMEWHAT 

UNSTABLE LATE TONIGHT AND FRIDAY BEHIND THE FRONT. 



AT 2230Z A STRONG FRONT WAS MOVING THROUGH THE OFFSHORE WATERS. IT 

WILL PUSH ACROSS THE AREA REACHING THE INTERIOR VALLEYS ABOUT 08Z 

FRIDAY THEN EAST OF THE CASCADES BY 12Z. LOW END VFR CONDITIONS THIS 

AFTERNOON WILL DETERIORATE TO MVFR SHORTLY AFTER 00Z THIS EVENING AS 

PRECIPITATION INCREASES WITH THE APPROACH OF THE FRONT.



THERE IS LIKELY TO BE A PERIOD OF LOW LEVEL WIND SHEAR IN THE 

INTERIOR FROM ABOUT KPAE SOUTHWARD AND ALONG THE COAST FOR A FEW 

HOURS AHEAD OF THE FRONT AS WINDS AT 2000 FT INCREASE TO SSW 40-50KT 

AND SURFACE WINDS REMAIN SELY. 



POST FRONTAL ONSHORE FLOW WITH SCATTERED SHOWERS ARE EXPECTED BEHIND 

THE FRONT LATE TONIGHT AND FRIDAY WITH MVFR CONDITIONS AND SOME 

CLEARING AT TIMES IN THE LEE OF THE OLYMPICS. ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS 

ARE NOT OUT OF THE QUESTION ALONG THE COAST ON FRIDAY AS COLD AIR 

ALOFT ARRIVES WITH AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH. ALBRECHT



KSEA...EXPECT BKN-OVC035-040 WITH PERIODS OF LIGHT RAIN...WITH 

CEILINGS DETERIORATING TO OVC015 BY 06Z. SE WIND 7-11 KT WILL SHIFT 

TO S 11-17 KT WITH GUSTS TO 25 KT BEHIND THE FRONT 08Z-10Z. THERE 

WILL BE 2-4 HOURS OF WIND 19035-40KT AT FL020 AHEAD OF THE INCOMING 

FRONT ABOUT 05Z-08Z TIME PERIOD. ALBRECHT



&&



.MARINE...A FRONT ASSOCIATED WITH A 970 MB LOW WELL WEST OF HAIDA 

GWAII WILL MOVE THROUGH THE WATERS TONIGHT. GALE FORCE WINDS CAN BE 

EXPECTED OVER THE COASTAL WATERS AND AT THE EAST ENTRANCE TO THE 

STRAIT UNTIL THE FRONT PASSES WITH SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY CONDITIONS 

FOR THE STRAIT...NORTHERN INLAND WATERS...ADMIRALTY INLET AND PUGET 

SOUND AND HOOD CANAL. 



EXPECT MODERATE TO STRONG ONSHORE FLOW BEHIND THE FRONT AND WITH A 

SURFACE TROUGH AS IT MOVES ACROSS THE AREA ON FRIDAY. SMALL CRAFT 

ADVISORY CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE OVER THE COASTAL WATERS AND 

POSSIBLY SOME OF THE INTERIOR ZONES. ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS CANNOT 

BE RULED OUT OVER THE COASTAL WATERS ON FRIDAY IN A RATHER UNSTABLE 

AIR MASS. 



30-45 FOOT WAVES OVER A LARGE AREA OF THE NORTH CENTRAL PACIFIC WILL 

DECAY TO A LONG PERIOD 22-25 FT SWELL THAT WILL REACH THE COAST 

MIDDAY FRIDAY AND CONTINUE TO PUSH ONSHORE THROUGH SATURDAY. TIDAL 

ANOMALIES ALONG THE COAST ARE JUST OVER 1 FOOT ABOVE NORMAL AND HIGH 

TIDE OCCURS SATURDAY MORNING. SOME COASTAL FLOODING IS POSSIBLE 

ALONG THE COAST AROUND THE HIGH TIDE ON SATURDAY...AND A COASTAL 

FLOOD WATCH IS IN EFFECT. A HIGH SURF ADVISORY WAS ISSUED FOR THE 

COAST FROM MIDDAY FRIDAY THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT. 



ANOTHER STRONG FRONT WILL ARRIVE ON SATURDAY WITH GALE 

FORCE WINDS ONCE AGAIN LIKELY OVER THE COASTAL WATERS...THE NORTHERN 

INLAND WATERS...AND THE STRAIT ENTRANCES. STRONG ONSHORE FLOW 

SATURDAY NIGHT WILL SLOWLY DIMINISH ON SUNDAY. ALBRECHT
