Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Seattle WA 240 PM PST Thu Jan 20 2022

SYNOPSIS. A convergence zone may allow for lingering showers into tonight for locations east of Puget Sound, otherwise, upper level ridging will bring dry conditions to the area for much of the forecast period. This prolonged high pressure and fairly light winds will result in fog from time to time in the lowlands.

SHORT TERM /TONIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/. Current radar shows precip activity generally wrapping up for much of W WA this afternoon, however some lingering convergence zone showers have set up in a thin line along the Snohomish-King County boarder. This extends from the Sound to the Cascades and as such will result in rain in the lowlands and snow in the mountains within this limited area. While Stevens Pass has seen some additional snowfall and will see a little more as the afternoon progresses into evening, total amounts look to remain below any headline criteria at this time. Of course, this will depend on if the CZ lingers overlong, so this will still warrant continued monitoring. Radar is showing some weak echoes to the north . over portions of Whatcom, Skagit and Snohomish counties . but not getting much in the way of ground truth for any precip, so may just be low clouds/fog or drizzle.

Upper level ridging asserts itself further over W WA as early as tonight allowing for drier conditions. Friday, Saturday and Sunday look to remain dry as said ridge remains the dominant weather feature over the area. However, with stable conditions and lingering surface moisture, fog will likely be an issue in the lowlands.

High temps during the short term are pretty static for Friday and Saturday, with highs in the mid to upper 40s. A little warming will nudge temps up a degree or two for Sunday, with highs in the upper 40s to around 50. 18

LONG TERM /MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. The upper level ridge very gradually shifts eastward throughout the long term period, but does so at such a snails pace that the ridge axis does not move east of the Cascade crest until the very end of the forecast period. This looks to give rise to air stagnation issues as the atmosphere will remain generally stable and as such, not much in the way of mixing will occur. The impact here will be the decrease in air quality, especially for valleys that frequently experience temperature inversions and large population centers, such as the Seattle metro area.

Like the short term, temps at the end of the forecast cycle will not see much in the way of variance, with daytime highs in the mid to upper 40s. Overnight lows will be a little brisk but nothing too unexpected for late January, generally sitting in the mid to upper 30s. 18

AVIATION. Winds will shift becoming more westerly toward today behind the cold front. A Puget Sound Convergence Zone has developed and is currently situated along the King-Snohomish County line. This feature is expected to shift south towards KSEA through the afternoon and evening before dissipating. CIGS have generally improved except near the convergence zone. Winds will taper off between 06-12z with generally light winds favoring a northerly direction during the bulk of the day Friday. Flight categories are likely to lower again overnight as areas of fog develop.

KSEA . Gusty west to southwest winds behind the cold front today into this evening. CIGS have generally been in the MVFR range. A PSCZ has developed and is currently located near the King-Snohomish County line. This feature is expected to gradually shift south this afternoon and evening evening. Still expecting a brief period of SHRA this evening at KSEA as the convergence zone weakens with the most likely precip timing between 00-03z. Low CIGs/Fog may develop again as winds become very light early Friday morning.

Wolcott

MARINE. Expect generally small craft advisory winds across the waters, with a stronger onshore push through the Strait bringing borderline gale conditions to portions of the Strait, Admiralty Inlet, and North Interior waterways this afternoon through early evening. Expect seas have built over the coastal waters and will so so more significantly Friday with an arriving west swell behind the weather system. Seas then subside but build again early next week with another west swell arriving. Meanwhile, stronger high pressure will build over the waters later this week and into the start of next week, with generally light winds across area waters.

Cullen/Wolcott

HYDROLOGY. From Previous Discussion . The weather system moving through the area today has brought 2 to 3 inches of rain in the area of the US 2 corridor, with lesser amounts elsewhere in the mountains. this is causing sharp rises on the Tolt and Snoqualmie Rivers, and threatening to exceed flood stage. The snow level is around 8000 feet but will be coming down later today as cooler air filters in behind the cold front. A convergence zone is expected to form in the south Snohomish to north King County area - yes, along the US 2 corridor. There is, as usual, a fair amount of uncertainty as to the exact location of the precipitation, the amount of precipitation, and how much will fall as snow in that area. An additional point of uncertainty is how much water will spill from the Tolt Dam. A flood watch is out for King County and the river forecasts have been updated showing crests above minor flood for the Tolt and below minor flood for the Snoqualmie near Carnation. We expect those river forecasts to be adjusted throughout the day and evening.
