Synopsis Rain will turn to scattered showers and much cooler,
more seasonable temperatures today as a cold front moves inland. The
scattered showers will continue into Friday as an upper level trough
follows the front. The next frontal system is expected to bring more
rain later Saturday into Sunday morning. This active weather pattern
should continue into early next week.

Short term Changes to this unseasonably warm moist weather will
unfold today. The subtropical moisture source will shift inland as a
cold front tracks onshore and the flow aloft will become more
westerly. This change will usher in a much cooler more seasonable
late nov air mass with rain changing to showers by afternoon. 850
millibar temperatures around 9 deg c are expected to drop to around
0 deg c late today. High temperatures today likely occurred early
this morning. Snow levels should drop close to 4000 ft by this
evening. The decrease in rainfall and the dropping snow levels will
help ease river runoff as well.

The offshore positive tilt upper trough should move onshore tonight
with Friday serving as a day in between weather systems with
scattered light showers in the queue. Looking upstream early this
morning, another upper level trough in the bering sea is forecast to
dig southeast off the coast Friday and Saturday. As it does so, the
flow aloft will once again back to ssw but the associated air mass
will not nearly be as warm and moist as the past few days.

These dynamics will developing another frontal system with warm
frontal rain spreading north into western washington during the day
Saturday and snow levels bouncing back up again ranging from 5000 to
7000 ft. This system will also develop a surface low that the progs
similarly track from south to north just inside 130w to across cape
scott on vancouver island Saturday night. Surface pressure rises
across western washington following the low and the associated cold
front should result in some blustery conditions by Sunday morning.

Buehner

Long term The offshore upper trough is forecast to track onshore
with a cooler air mass and associated showers Sunday afternoon into
Monday. It is at this point that the mid range guidance begins to
diverge. Overall, ridging aloft is expected Monday for decreasing
showers. But then the question becomes whether an incoming warm
front will produce any rain Monday night into Tuesday as the gfs,
canadian and euro all differ on this solution. This issue continues
into Wednesday with more definitive resolution likely in the coming
days. Buehner

Aviation Moist, SW flow will continue over western wa today for
rain across the area. Expect mainly MVFR to ifr ceilings with patchy
fog possible this morning. A trough will cross the area this
afternoon for strong onshore flow and showers but should see
ceilings improving. Showers will mainly affect the mountains tonight
with strong westerly flow aloft. 33
ksea... MVFR this morning improving toVFR late this afternoon. South
winds 10-15 kt becoming southwest and increasing to 15g25 kt by 21z.

33

Marine Strong onshore flow will continue today as a trough
moves inland - expect small craft advisory winds over most waters.

Winds will ease after midnight tonight in the interior. The next
front will stall over southern b.C. On Friday then dissipate.

Another vigorous system will arrive around Saturday night. Strong
southerly gradients are possible over the entire area Sunday. Gales
are possible over most waters with small craft advisory conditions
over puget sound and hood canal. 33

Hydrology Another frontal system moved into western washington
overnight, with additional rainfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches -
highest over the olympics and north cascades. The snow level was
around 8000 feet. We can expected another 0.75 to 1.5 inches of rain
today, mostly this morning, as the system moves through. The snow
level will gradually fall, dropping to around 4000 feet late today
as precipitation decreases.

The list of rivers under flood warnings grew overnight. Rivers that
have already or still are flooding include the satsop, elwha,
dungeness, skokomish, the reach of the cowlitz from randle to riffe
lake, the snoqualmie, skykomish, snohomish, stillaguamish, skagit,
and nooksack. Major flooding is expected on the skagit river near
concrete and possibly downstream where the river GOES through mount
vernon. In addition, heavy rain caused some flooding of the smaller
rivers that flow off the east side of the olympic mountains (little
quilcene, big quilcene, dosewallips, duckabush, hamma hamma).

Flooding could still develop on a few more rivers. We're most
concerned about the reach of the nisqually near national and the
reach of the white at r street bridge near auburn. Keep in mind,
though, that there is a chance of at least minor flooding on any of
the flood-prone rivers in our forecast area. A flood watch remains
in effect through today, and additional warnings could be issued
this morning.
